Zou Shiming (5-0) vs. Kwanpichit 13 Rien Express (27-0-2)

This is an easy one. No way will the 5’41/2 Shiming lose to the 5’2’ 33 yea-old Thai with the puffed-up record a glance at which reveals that his level of opposition has been dreadful and includes twelve fights with opponents who were making their pro debut and even one of those ended in a draw. While “13 Rein” holds the WBO Oriental flyweight title, it means little in the scheme of things.

On paper this a step up. In reality it’s a sideway move and may result in Zou getting his second stoppage win and it’s his first 12-rounder to boot. Shiming has great speed and possesses super technical skills.  Billed as being China’s most successful amateur boxer of all time, he won three consecutive Olympic medals and like Vasyl Lomachenko, is light years more seasoned than his record indicates. More specifically, he is a two-time Olympic gold medalist and three-time World Amateur Champion.

O’Sullivan almost KO’d by Thrown Stool

Middleweight Gary “Spike” O’Sullivan (18-1) took less than ninety seconds to wax opponent Anthony “Fitzey” Fitzgerald (16-6) in Dublin, Ireland on Saturday, but the knockout was not the only story in this one shown on Sky Sports. As O’Sullivan was celebrating his spectacular KO, someone displeased with the result tossed the corner stool across the ring, directly at Gary barley missing him.

Blood Sport Time Redux

On May 7, 2005, Jose Luis Castillo and the late Diego Corrales engaged in one of the most savage and thrilling fights ever waged inside a boxing ring. The stoppage by Diego remains one of the most dramatic ring turnarounds in history, perhaps matched only by Jorge Castro’s stoppage of John David Jackson via La mano de Dios (The hand of God) in 1996.

Castillo (66-12-1), after knocking out Corrales in their rematch five months later, moved up to light welterweight and was promptly waxed by Ricky Hatton in 2007. After quitting on his stool against Alfonso Gomez in 2010, the proud and once feared Castillo announced his retirement, but like most boxers who announce a retirement on the spot and/or without exploring other options, this one didn’t last long.

Javier Fortuna beats Cotto in Foul Fest

Fortuna’s fight with Abner Cotto was sloppy, comical and ugly––if it’s possible to be both ugly and comical at the same time.

The horrific performance from referee Lou Hall, who was officiating his first significant career fight, only added to the mayhem, chaos, and havoc.

Fortuna (26-0-1) buzzed Cotto (18-3) early in the first and second rounds, but Cotto hung in and even scored a “knockdown” in round two with two of the neatest back of the head rabbit punches ever thrown. Hall called it a knockdown which it was not and then took a point away from Cotto for the knockdown. Huh!

Donovan George Suspended

Donovan George has been suspended by the Illinois Boxing Commission and his August 23 win over Dyah Davis, which brought him the IBO super middleweight title, has been officially changed to a no contest.

According to promoter Bobby Hitz, George’s suspension is due to an anti-inflammatory drug the fighter was taking for an injured hand, but forgot to declare on a pre-fight application.

Post Fight Chaos and One Dirty Mosquito

Post Fight Chaos, Vido, and One Dirty Mosquito
“…The people at ringside could not accept the loss. There were people there from the Argentinian truckers union, where Lazarte is a member and they started to throw bottles and chairs. They entered the ring and attacked us. My friend, Oswaldo Bravo had to pull Casimero out from the mob and hide him under the ring,”—Promoter Sammy Gello

“Lazarte v Casimero {was} for the IBF Junior Flyweight title in Buenos Aires on the 10/02/2012. A fight that had everything: weak refereeing, biting, rabbit punches, low blows, phantom knockdowns, and a nasty riot at the end. No boxer in his right mind would want to fight in Argentina now”—Poster named Gyalist.

Tommy Coyle vs Michael Katsidis Danger Lurks in Hull

“I am not going to change too much, I’m going to go out and put on a show and I am not going to take a backward step—Tommy Boom Boom Coyle

“I’m here to prove that I still have plenty left to offer – and there will be no questioning my future after Hull,” Michael Katsidis.
Michael “The Great” Katsidis (30-6) came back after 2 years and  MRI CAT SCAN results (that he had scarring of the brain)  to stop Eddy Comaro in March 2014.

Then he battered and bloodied Graham “The Duke of” Earl (26-5) from pillar to post on his way to a lopsided UD in Toowoomba, Australia. The scores were 120-108, 120-109, and 119-109 as Katsidis claimed the vacant WBF belt (German version). Earl came out of a five year retirement to take this bout and surprised many by going the route without being decked but he offered little while taking a pounding against the relentless Aussie .
