McCARTER WINS DECISION

McCarter displays little rust after two-year layoff
by Steve Carp/Las Vegas Review Journal

It took seven years for Layla McCarter and Melissa Hernandez to settle their differences in the ring.
The two former world champions had split their first two meetings, which came within a two-month span in 2007. They met again Friday at The Orleans, and as was the case in their first fight, McCarter left a winner with an eight-round unanimous decision in their women’s super lightweight bout.
Judges Dick Houck and Ricardo Ocasio had McCarter ahead 80-72, and Patricia Morse-Jarman scored it 79-73.
“I felt good,” said McCarter, who improved to 36-13-5. “I probably wasn’t as sharp as I should have been, but I’m dedicated to being my best, and I thought it showed in the ring.”

PROMOTER SAYS FIGHT IS ON

Statement from Bobby Hitz/Hitz Boxing on rumors of Donovan George pulling of his fight with Jean Pascal:

“We highly dispute any reports that Donovan George pulled out of this fight. It’s true that he and his wife just had twins, but as of late this afternoon, on our end, we are still a go. We were still negotiating the final details with Interbox. Since Bute pulled out of his fight, there’s been a lot of confusion as to how to elevate this fight to the main event. A lot of people were muddying the waters on how to make this thing happen, but at the end of the day Pierre Duc, his team and I put this fight back together. We have flight arrangements, and we are scheduled to arrive in Montreal on the 30th of November, and we intend on fulfilling that. These reports have been manufactured to try to add confusion to his training camp, but I can guarantee you this: Pascal better get ready, because Donovan’s coming to knock him out.”

ENRIQUEZ DOMINATES

Kenia Enriquez (13-0, 6KO) put on a masterful and dominating performance against the always tough Ana “La Bronca” Arrazola (21-11-3, 13KO). Enriquez captured the vacant WBO Female Flyweight Title in the main event of a fight card presented by Bobby D. Presents and Zanfer. Final scores were 100-90 twice and 100-89 for Enriquez.
*****
Leon “3rd Generation” Spinks III (9-1-1, 4KO)won by a TKO stoppage over Tijuana’s Ivan “Oso” Zavala (6-8-2, 2KO) in the third round of a scheduled six. Zavala scored some good over hand rights but Spinks was able to walk right through them. Near the end of the third, Spinks unleashed an flurry of punches that caused a cut over the left eye of Zavala. Zavala went down but beat the count but the ringside doctor waived off the fight. Official time was 3:00 of the third.

WBAN GOES ONE ON ONE WITH THE WBC

Interesante función boxística el viernes en la noche en el Orleans casino en el Valle.
Por Jaime Estrada

En la noche de viernes de boxeo, Melissa Hernández salió de su camerino moviéndose con el ritmo estilo disco y con una camiseta que decía Futura Leyenda.
Después le toco el turno a Layla McCarter y cuando fue anunciada fue tanto el estruendo que no se necesitaba decir quién era la favorita de la gente presente en el Madi Grass del Orleans casino.

AN OPEN LETTER FROM WBC TO AIBA

 

 

The IOC and Amateur Sports (or lack thereof) – an Open Letter from WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman
