GFL REAL FIGHTS Presents CFFC 38 on TCN & CSN Beginning August 25

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)

CFFC 38” BEGINNING AUGUST 25

August 22, 2014

GFL and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class MMA as Cage Fury Fighting Championships returns to the Borgata Hotel and Casino in Atlantic City, New Jersey to present CFFC 38. This event will showcase the top regional MMA stars along the Eastern seaboard including 3 title fights!

In the main event, for the CFFC Lightweight Title, Champion Paul Felder (7-0) looks to defend his title against Craig Johnson (6-2). Felder is an exciting fighter who brings a tremendous striking game into the cage. Felder is quickly making a name for himself because of his highlight reel KOs and will look to add another one to the list against Johnson. Johnson is a battle-tested fighter who comes into the title fight looking to pull off the upset and bring home the gold. Johnson needs to keep a safe distance from Johnson when he is not on the attack and try to get the fight to the mat and get Felder off of his feet. Expect fireworks from these two gladiators.

In the co-main event, for the vacant CFFC Welterweight Title, Jonavin Webb (6-0) takes on Dan Stittgen (9-3). Webb is still undefeated and has gotten better with each and every fight. Look for Webb to make this a brawl and close the distance and fight up close and personal. Stittgen is a great all-around fighter who can strike, wrestle and has a decent submission game. Both fighters are evenly matched and if this fight goes into the championship rounds, look for conditioning to play a huge factor because both men are going to come at each other full blast.

For the CFFC Featherweight Title, Champion Levan Makashvili (8-0) takes on the durable Alexandre Bezerra (16-3) in a fight insiders have been clamoring for, for months. Makashvili is a great submission specialist, while Bezerra prefers to stand and strike. The question of this fight will be who will win the clinch as if Makashvili can get the fight to the mat he will have a huge advantage. If Bezerra can keep the fight standing he will be able to score with huge shots and slow down the shots of Makashvili.

IS MIKE JONES’ CAREER AT STAKE VS. JAIME HERRERA?

August 21, 2014 by · Leave a Comment
Filed under: Boxing News, Press Release, Upcoming Events 

Story by Lem Satterfield, of The Ring Magazine

Former title challenger Mike Jones has new trainers for his return to the ring against Jaime Herrera on Friday in the Grand Ballroom at Bally’s Event Center in Atlantic City, New Jersey. This will be Jones’ first fight in over two years.
In June 2012, Jones (26-1, 19 knockouts) was stopped by Randall Bailey in the 11th round of his failed bid to earn the IBF’s vacant welterweight title.
After falling to Bailey, Jones relocated to Henderson, Nevada, near Las Vegas, and settled on Miguel Diaz and Ismael Salas after working with a variety of trainers, including Floyd Mayweather Sr. and Eddie Mustafa Muhammad.
“Boxing is a mental game just as much as a physical one. When we first worked with Mike for this fight, we talked for a long time and worked on renewing his fighting spirit,” said Salas, who has worked with 10 titleholders as well as Jessie Vargas.
“He is a great fighter and he needs to think that, when he walks into the ring, he will be a powerful force. Mike is very strong and hits hard.  He is in top condition. Just look at him. After two years off, you will see what hard work and mental toughness did for Mike. He’s ready to fight.”
Jones concurred.
“I like Ismael Salas and Miguel Diaz because they bring a positive attitude into the situation every time I come into the gym. We’ve pretty much gone back to the basics and worked on the things that work and we’re not trying to over-complicate things,” said Jones.
“They’re very knowledgeable in boxing and they’be been around a long time. Ismael Salas has trained a lot of world champions and Miguel Diaz, his name speaks for itself. So, I’m happy with the relationship we’ve got.”
For his fight with Bailey, Jones had requested eight-ounce gloves, contending that he wanted to face the very best of the fighter known for his powerful, lights-out right hand. Bailey was trailing by four, six and eight points on the judges’ cards and getting outboxed when he dropped Jones with right hands in the 10th and 11th rounds.
Jones attempted to rise but fell face-first back to the canvas and referee Tony Weeks waved an end to the fight at 2:52 of the 11th. Prior to facing Bailey, Jones had overcome rugged Sebastian Lujan by unanimous decision in December 2011, ending the Argentine slugger’s 12-fight winning streak.
“Mike’s career is at stake and from what I’ve heard, he is really pumped up about it. He needs to be the fighter that he once was but a little more aggressive this time,” said promoter J Russell Peltz.
“Mike is only a fight or two away from being right back in the mix with all of those welterweights that you see on the major pay stations, like the Shawn Porters and the Kell Brooks and the Mike Alvarados and the Ruslan Provodnikovs and all those guys. He could be right back in there with one, if not two, good outings.”
Herrera (11-2, 6 KOs), of Franklin Park, Ill., has won his last four fights and stopped previously unbeaten Michael Finney in five rounds in March, Herrera’s most-recent fight. Herrera’s last lost came in February 2012 when he was outpointed by Adrian Granados.
“I’m back now and I want to work. I let go of my pride and I’m ready to go. It’s not like it’s the perfect time but I’m ready to get right back into the boxing scene because it’s really hot right now in the welterweight division. I feel like I’m only one great performance away from a title shot, the way that the game is right now,” said Jones.
“I’m going to be in against a tough kid and he comes to fight. He wants to try to wear you down and throw a lot of shots. He’s a good fighter. I just want to go in there and give my absolute best, which is something that I haven’t done in a few fights. I just want to get back to doing what I’ve been doing and doing my best, the way that I started.”

NEW TRAINER CONFIDENT A NEW MIKE JONES WILL SHOW UP SATURDAY AT BALLY’S ATLANTIC CITY

Filed under: Boxing News, Press Release, Upcoming Events 

Las Vegas, NV—Former world-title challenger Mike Jones wrapped up his preparations yesterday at the Top Rank Gym here for Saturday’s 10-round comeback fight against Jaime Herrera, of Franklin Park, IL, at Bally’s Atlantic City.

It has been more than two years since Jones last fought. He was stopped in the 11th round of his IBF world welterweight title fight with Randall Bailey, of Miami, FL, at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas. That was June 9, 2012.

Since then, Jones, 31, moved from Philadelphia, PA, to Las Vegas, was idle for two years while working out daily in Las Vegas gyms, and now is trained by Ismael Salas and Miguel Diaz.

“Boxing is a mental game just as much as a physical one,” said Salas, pictured above with Jones, Diaz and Richie Sandoval. “When we first worked with Mike for this fight, we talked for a long time and worked on renewing his fighting spirit. He is a great fighter and he needs to think that when he walks into the ring he will be a powerful force.

“Mike is very strong and hits hard. He is in top condition; just look at him. After two years off, you will see what hard work and mental toughness did for Mike. He’s ready to fight.”

Salas has worked with 10 world champions, the most recent being Jessie Vargas, of Las Vegas, the current WBA junior welterweight champion.

Jones, who has won 26 of 27 pro fights, 19 by knockout, makes his fourth appearance at Bally’s, where he has defeated Lenin Arroyo, Raul Pinzon and Henry Bruseles.

Herrera, 25, is 11-2-1, 6 K0s. He comes into Saturday’s fight off the biggest win of his career, a fifth-round knockout over previously unbeaten Michael Finney, of Pahrump, NV, last March 29 in Las Vegas. Herrera’s management has been asking for this fight ever since word got out in May that Jones was fighting again.

The scheduled eight-round middleweight semifinal features Thomas LaManna, of Millville, NJ, against Jamaal Davis, of Philadelphia, in a prospect- vs.-veteran crossroads match. LaManna is 14-0, 7 K0s; Davis 14-11-1, 6 K0s.

Ismael Garcia, of Vineland, NJ, and Gilbert Alex Sanchez, of Camden, NJ, collide over six rounds to determine the best junior middleweight prospect in South Jersey. Garcia is 6-0, 3 K0s; Sanchez 4-4-1, 2 K0s.

ABOUT AUGUST 23

The Jones-Herrera and LaManna-Davis fights top an eight-bout card at Bally’s Atlantic City. First fight is 7.30 pm. Tickets are priced at $50 and $75 and they are on sale at the offices of Peltz Boxing (215-765-0922) and all Ticketmaster outlets (800-745-3000). Tickets also are on sale at www.peltzboxing.com and www.ticketmaster.com. www.gofightlive.tv will stream the card on the internet.

WFC 26 Review

CLICK HERE TO ORDER – http://www.gfl.tv/event/Fight/Boxing/WFC-26/2510

Hard hitting boxing returned as WFC presented “WFC 26” from the Belle of Baton Rouge in Baton Rouge, Louisiana on the GFL Combat Sports Network. WFC events are the premier boxing shows in the Gulf Coast as they are the proving grounds for tomorrow’s future stars and established veterans looking to mix it up. These expert pugilists threw down from the opening bell, providing a great night of fights for the fans.

In the main event, in a light middleweight bout, Travis Scott (17-0) and K Lon Spencer (4-1) fought to a no contest after an accidental head butt opened up a cut above Spencer’s right eye. Both Scott and Spencer were throwing haymakers from the opening bell, but in the second, when both fighters were firing off punches at a close range, Scott ducked his head to avoid a punch and it collided with Spencer’s head, opening the cut above the eye. Spencer still wanted to continue to fight, but the doctor put fighter safety first and stopped the fight. Hopefully Scott and Spencer can do it again as it was shaping up to be a fun fight.

In the super middleweight division, Justin Thomas (8-0) defeated Martin Verdin (20-17-2) via unanimous decision after 6 rounds of action. Thomas executed a perfect game plan as he kept his distance and landed left hands and straight rights as he racked up points throughout the fight. Verdin tried to close the distance but couldn’t put as many combos together as Thomas who was also elusive with his defense. It was a strong win for Thomas who defeated a battle-tested fighter in Verdin to remain undefeated. Expect Thomas to continue to rise up the ranks.

Demond Brock (7-2) defeated Gary Bergeron (12-9) via unanimous decision in a light welterweight title. Brock was fast and furious as he scored with right crosses, uppercuts, and hooks while Bergeron retaliated with jabs and overhands. Brock and Bergeron engaged in several great exchanges, but in the end, Brock landed a greater volume of punches and also connected with hard shots which helped him in the scorecards.

The only stoppage of the night came at the hands of Arthur Thomas (1-0) who defeated John Revish (10-11-2) via TKO in the third round. Thomas quickly established the jab and worked Revish over pretty well until finishing the bout with a nice combo that sent Revish down for good. It was a strong debut fight for Thomas who looks to get back into the ring as soon as possible.

Be sure to catch all of the hard hitting action anytime on VOD as WFC presents “WFC 26” exclusively at GFL.tv.

Nordic Coliseum Women’s Boxing 1 Review

In a time when women’s mixed martial arts continues to grow at a breakneck place, Nordic Coliseum Women’s Boxing (NCWB) took a step forward and said “hey we can put on great events too.” And they put on quite a show, especially in their main event as fomer WBC Super Fantamweight champion and Canada’s own Olivia “The Predator” Gerula – who took the fight on four weeks notice –  defeated IBFA Super Bantamweight champion Kaliesha “Wild Wild” West.

West scored a knockdown on Gerula five seconds into the first round, though The Predator quickly bounced back. The match was pretty close with Gerula pushing forward and West throwing her own shots. It was a match that went all eight rounds. It was a good way to cap off NWCB’s first event.

Besides the main event, there were several notable bouts on the card.

In the co-main event, Lita Mae Button defeated the debuting Maureen Riordon via decision in what was both fighters’ professional debut.

In what many could consider the “Fight of the Night,” Jennifer Santiago kept her undefeated record – she’s now 4-0 – intact after a close scrap with Sherine “Rosie” Thomas. Both fighters were aggressive and trading leather – as well as headbutts – all the way until the final bell.

Brenda Gonzalez defeated Luicia Osequeda’s via majority decision in what a display of good technical striking. She snapped Osequeda’s undefeated record.

Besides Button and Riordon, the undercard also featured some action-packed bouts with several fighters making their professional debut.. Golden Gloves winner Alicia Napoleon stopped veteran Monique “The Animal” Duval in the first round.

Muay Thai champion Ashley Nichols scored a decision victory over MMA veteran Amanda “The Glitch” Lovato after an action-packed war.

Judy Pereia picked up a decision win over Eloise Picard in the first bout of the night.

The idea behind NWCB’s card was to take fighters who are adept in different disciplines and put them in the ring to see if they want to try boxing. Some of those of those fighters, you’d think they have been in the ring several times.

All in all this was a historic night for women’s boxing and I’ll be interested to see what NCWB does next for their next card.

DiBella Entertainment put on another invigorating show at the famed BB King Blues Club and Grill in New York City.

DiBella Entertainment put on another invigorating show at the famed BB King Blues Club and Grill in New York City last night.

In the main event, former WBC Featherweight champion Elio Rojas (24-2, 14 KO’s) returned to the ring after a two and a half year layoff, and soundly defeated Robert Osiobe (14-10-4, 6 KO’s) by an eight-round unanimous decision. Rojas won via scores of 80-71 twice and 79-72.

Rojas, 31, landed numerous lead right hands while fiercely battling Osiobe’s rough tactics throughout the entire match-up. During round five, referee Arthur Mercante, Jr. deducted one point from Osiobe for excessive holding. Osiobe, 36, showed great difficulty dealing with Rojas’ adept hand speed and lateral movement.

The bout took place at junior welterweight.

Junior lightweight Bryant “Pee Wee” Cruz (12-0, 6 KO’s) captured a six-round majority decision victory over tough Jose Morales (7-6, 2 KO’s) in the co-main event. The final tallies were 57-57, 60-54 and 59-55.

Both fighters exchanged blow-for-blow in close quarters for the full eighteen minutes to please the sellout crowd. The fight appeared much closer than the official scorecards indicated.

Despite sustaining a hematoma on the right side of his forehead, Derrick Findley (21-13-1, 13 KO’s) shocked Lamar Russ (14-2, 7 KO’s), winning an eight-round unanimous decision via scores of 77-72, 76-73 and 75-74.
Although Russ exhibited a clear height and reach advantage, Findley popped him early in round one with consecutive right crosses.
Findley continued to counter Russ effectively in the second round, connecting with a hard right uppercut to the body.
In the opening moments of round four, Findley unleashed a left hook that instantaneously floored Russ. Shortly thereafter, Findley developed a large hematoma on his forehead. It was unclear from ringside if a punch, elbow or headbutt caused the massive swelling. Next, Russ briefly abandoned his jab and threw wild, looping  shots. After examining Findley when the round ended, the ringside physician allowed him to continue fighting.
Referee Arthur Mercante, Jr. deducted one point from Russ in the seventh round for holding. Then, Findley threw and connected with a colossal right hand shot that sent Russ crashing onto the canvas. Surprisingly, Russ recovered and made it to the eighth and final round.
During the final minute of action, Russ peppered Findley with three straight right crosses to the head. After that, Findley landed a crushing left hook on Russ’ jaw. From that moment on, both combatants traded fiercely until the final bell.
Brooklyn featherweight Rafael Vazquez (12-1, 10 KO’s) scored a TKO victory at 1:20 of round five against Derrick Wilson (10-7-2, 3 KO’s) in the most exciting fight of the night.
Wilson, 25, worked well behind his left jab in the first round and used lots of lateral movement to stifle the offense of Vazquez.
Wilson continued to outwork Vazquez in round two, but Vazquez tagged him early with an accurate left hook-right cross-left hook combination.
Just as Wilson appeared to find his range in the third round, Vazquez, 36, dropped him with a lightning-quick left hook to the face.
Vazquez nailed Wilson with a right cross-left hook combination to begin round four. Then, a right uppercut followed by a swift left hook from Wilson dropped Vazquez. Moments later, Vazquez staggered Wilson with a right cross-left hook combination.
Wilson desperately tried to clinch after getting struck with a well-placed right hand shot from Vazquez in the fifth round. Subsequently, Vazquez fearlessly assaulted Wilson with right crosses until the bout was stopped.
Light heavyweight Junior Younan (6-0, 5 KO’s) blitzed right through Marlon Farr (4-7) in :26 of the 1st round.
After trapping Farr in a neutral corner, Younan, 18, knocked Farr unconscious with a series of brutal right crosses and left hooks. Referee David Fields was a few seconds late on the stoppage, causing Farr to absorb approximately three unnecessary blows to the head.
Louis Cruz (9-0, 4 KO’s) stayed undefeated, scoring a six-round unanimous decision versus Cameron Krael (5-6-2) by scores of 60-54 twice and 58-56.
Cruz, a junior welterweight, used his proficient foot speed to outbox his foe. Yet, Krael was relentless, and attacked Cruz with crisp, clean body shots for the duration of the fight. When Cruz had trouble containing Krael, he released sudden lead right hand shots. Cruz sustained minor swelling underneath his right eye during the fifth round. The judges’ official scorecards were not reflective of the competitiveness put on display by Krael.
In cruiserweight action, Travis Peterkin (11-0, 5 KO’s) outpointed Lamont Williams (5-5-1, 2 KO’s) in a six-round bout via scores of 60-54 and 59-55 twice. Peterkin, a southpaw, pressed the action throughout the fight, but threw too many wide punches. As a result, he lacked the delivery to finish Williams.
Junior welterweight Jonathan Alonso made a successful pro debut, stopping Jose Gomez (3-8) at 1:52 of round three. Born in the Dominican Republic, but now residing in Spain, the 23-year-old prospect displayed a definitive advantage of hand speed and natural power. While Gomez possessed a sturdy chin, he consumed a multitude of grueling shots with each passing round.
A fast right uppercut to the body and then to the head from Alonso left Gomez crouching in the corner, and the fight was immediately stopped.

GFL REAL FIGHTS Presents Golden Gloves Part 1 Beginning August 18 on TCN and CSN

GFL PRESENTS “REAL FIGHTS” ON THE COMCAST NETWORK (TCN) & COMCAST SPORTSNET (CSN)

GOLDEN GLOVES: PART 1” BEGINNING AUGUST 18

August 15, 2014

GFL, The Comcast Network and Comcast SportsNet continue their weekly combat sports series, REAL FIGHTS, with world class boxing as GFL presents another show stopper with Golden Gloves: Part 1, featuring a full lineup of up and coming boxers from around the New York area.

The Daily News Golden Gloves brings a knockout lineup of fights to Brooklyn at the Barclays Center.

To celebrate its 86th anniversary, the Golden Gloves—amateur boxing’s most prestigious tournament—will host two days of finals at the new state-of-the-art arena, which is proud to showcase the very best in professional and amateur boxing as part of its ongoing lineup of events.

The Daily News Golden Gloves has produced such greats as Emile Griffith, Jose Torres, Floyd Patterson, Howard Davis and Brooklyn natives Riddick Bowe and Mark Breland, so don’t miss your chance to catch the best brawlers of boxing’s next generation as they go the distance in Brooklyn.

For 87 years, The Daily News Golden Gloves has given men, women, boys and girls in the five boroughs and beyond the chance to call themselves a champion. This year, while 24 new winners will be crowned, the Daily News Golden Gloves will honor 12 of its finest champions and four of its most valued leaders with induction into the inaugural Golden Gloves Hall of Fame.

Born in 1927, the Golden Gloves quickly grew into one of the most popular sporting events in the country. Since that first year, more than 100,000 New Yorkers have stepped into the Golden Gloves ring, with some 1,500 champions walking away with the iconic gloves pendant around their necks. It is still the largest and most prestigious amateur boxing event in the world with the possible exception of the Olympics, and has produced more world champions (41) than any other tournament.

The Gloves Hall of Fame was created to recognize and honor those exceptional amateur champions. These men and women were chosen by a selection committee composed of five members with a combined 100-plus years of amateur boxing experience including: current tournament director and former three-time Golden Gloves champion Brian Adams, former Daily News sportswriter and Gloves historian Bill Farrell, Gleason’s Gym owner Bruce Silverglade, Yonkers PAL program director Sal Corrente and longtime boxing contributor Julio Salinas Albino.

“I thought it was time to have a home for the fellow champions, regardless of any other accolades they may accomplish in boxing. The Golden Gloves is still the twinkle of their eye,” Adams said. “Now with this Hall of Fame, their memories are guaranteed to stay alive.”

Shamrock Events comes to GFL.tv with “Kings of Kombat 13” a top notch kickboxing event in front of a rabid crowd at the Melbourne Pavilion in Australia. “Kings of Kombat 13” takes place on August 30 and this Australian event is sure to turn heads across the globe.

In the main event, Steve Moxon takes on Marco Tentori in a heavyweight scrap. Moxon is a feared striker because of his accuracy and ability to mix up his attacks that keep his opponents on the defensive. Moxon loves to keep a safe distance and does this with devastating leg kicks. Will he be able to connect early and often? Moxon won his last fight decisively via unanimous decision and also proved to have world class cardio to go along with his devastating striking power. Tentori is a gritty fighter who can easily take one to give one. Tentori is looking to knock off the champion and to do that he will have to either stay busier in the ring or more likely put Moxon down for the count. Expect fireworks from these two world class strikers.

Also scheduled to compete are several of the top ranked strikers from around the world who will be competing against one another for bragging rights. Among the standouts are Daniel Soeurream, Chase Haley, Richard Tom, and Steven Baldacchino. The winners of these bouts will set themselves up for future title shots and big paydays. Look for all of the fighters on this card to throw strikes with bad intentions as everyone will be going for the highlight reel KO.

“Kings of Kombat 13” will tear down the house with KOs and devastating striking. It is loaded with several blue chip fighters that will be going toe to toe. If you are a fan of kickboxing, don’t miss this star-studded event. Order this event now on GFL.tv.
