What We Learned From This Past Week in Boxing (Week of August 12-18)

By. BrotherJR

8/20/13

Since I’m up late (and really should be in bed) I’ve decided that hey, why not recap this week in boxing. There were some interesting developments this week within “The Sweet Science” with some very good bouts in the ring, and some interesting happenings outside the ring.  Here are some of my observations:

1. We’ve Found a New Force in the Light Heavyweight Division (as well as a potential future star in boxing), and His Name is Sergey Kovalev –  Kovalev, who has been the buzz of boxing hardcore fans throughout 2013, lived up to all the hype with his four round destruction of Nathan Cleverly to win the WBO Lt. Heavyweight title Saturday night in Cardiff, Wales. There is already talk of a potential showdown between Kovalev and current WBC 175lb champ Adonis Stevenson which is a potential fight of the year, as well as questions whether Kovalev may be the best Light Heavyweight in the world.  The future for Kovalev is limitless.

2. I Want A Daniel Geale vs. Darren Barker Rematch!!! – In the main event of a HBO double-header in Atlantic City this past Saturday, Barker scored the upset, winning the IBF Middleweight title from Geale via split decision. Geale for his part put on a terrific fight as well.  It was all action, fast paced boxing that was the best fight of this past week.  The fight was so good that I want an immediate rematch.  Will it happen? I have my doubts.  Reason being is that former WBA Middleweight champ Felix Sturm is the number one contender, and good bet that Barker will fight Sturm first because that bout would be mean significantly more money.

3. Carl Frampton Must Be Really, Kiko! – Why? Because in February, the undefeated Frampton scored a 9th round TKO win over Kiko Martinez, the same Martinez that just stopped Jhonatan Romero on the Geale – Barker undercard to win the IBF Jr. Featherweight tile.  At least Frampton knows in his heart that even though he not currently a world champion (not yet anyway), he has a win over the current IBF Champion.  Now will Martinez try to avenge his loss to Frampton with a world title on the line? In a word, NOPE!

4. The “Baby Bull” is Back!!! – If you’re wondering who am I referring to, I’m talking about former Lightweight champion Juan Diaz, who is continuing his comeback from a nearly 3 year layoff with a 5th round TKO of Adailton De Jesus in Laredo, Texas.  Diaz looked sharp, and plans to return to the ring in October. Don’t be surprised if Diaz continues on this track that he gets a world title shot in 2014. And given the rather weak status of the Lightweight division, I wouldn’t be surprised if the “Baby Bull” becomes a champion once again.

5. Sometimes It’s Better to be Lucky Than Good – Andrzej Fonfara, fighting in his adopted hometown of Chicago, scored a dramatic come from behind 9th round stoppage over former Lt. Heavyweight champion Gabriel Campillo on Friday Night Fights.  Truth be told that Campillo was dominating this fight, but got caught in round eight, and Fonfara finished him off in the 9th.  With the win, Fonfara is not the mandatory challenger for the winner of the upcoming bout between IBF Lt. Heavyweight champ Bernard Hopkins and Karo Murat.  While I still don’t thing highly of Fonfara and believe he would get schooled by Hopkins (assuming he beats Murat), give credit for Fonfara for hanging in there with Campillo and finding a way to come back.  What’s the old saying, luck is when opportunity meets preparation.

6. Looks As if Curtis Stevens Has Indeed Agreed to Fight GGG – Following Stevens 1st round KO over Saul Roman on August 3rd, Steven went on a full-scale, trash talking campaign to call out current WBA middleweight champion Gennady (nicknamed “GGG”) Golovkin, claiming that he would destroy Golovkin and knock him out.  However on August 10th, the camp of Stevens turned down a $300k offer to fight Golovkin.  Well last week, Stevens tweeted that he has agreed to fight Golovkin, with the bout tentatively scheduled to take place on November 2nd at MSG.  Stevens has talked a lot of smack.  Will he show and prove, or will his mouth write a check that his behind (or more to the point, his chin) can’t afford.

Now, there’s my ramblings and thoughts about the past week in boxing.  Things were good for “The Sweet Science” last week. Given what’s planned down the line for the sport, it’s sure to get better. Happy trails boxing fans!  Now that I’ve gone on a boxing rant, let me get some sleep.

Kovalev Pummels Cleverly in Four to Win WBO Lightweight Title

Cleverly - Kovalev

8/18/13

Going into this much talked about Light-Heavyweight battle between defending WBO champ Nathan Cleverly and WBO #2 ranked contender Kovalev, it was Cleverly that was considered the underdog.  Even though Cleverly was undefeated going in and fighting on home soil in Wales, it was Kovalev who was the fighter receiving all of they hype and much of the attention.  Kovalev has been one of the more talked about fighters and rising contenders in the sport.  He has been the talk of boxing fans based on largely on his 3rd round destruction over former WBA Light-Heavyweight champion Gabriel Campillo this past January as well as his follow-up TKO over Cornelius White in June.  On Saturday night in Cardiff, Wales Kovalev more than lived up to the hype, overwhelming and stopping the previously undefeated Cleverly by 4th round TKO to win the WBO Light-Heavyweight title.

Kovalev (22-0, 20 KO’s) got off to a hot start early, setting the pace by establishing the jab as well and landing combinations to the head and body in round one.  Generally known as a boxer, Cleverly (26-1, 12 KO’s), elected to mix it up early with the hard-hitting Kovalev. However, by the end the first round he was in defensive mode feeling early on the power of Kovalev.  It was much of the same in round 2 as Kovalev stayed on the front foot, landing a variety of shots to the head and body of Cleverly who couldn’t get going as he was unable find his rhythm.  The defending champ couldn’t land any telling blows of his own and was in constant defensive mode to avoid the hard shots from the powerful challenger.  Kovalev suffered a cut over his right eye a minute into round 2, but it didn’t matter as he was in control early on.

As rough as it was for Cleverly through the first two rounds, it became worse for him in the third.  With 65 seconds to go in the round, Cleverly was hurt by a Kovalev left hook.  A follow-up assault from the Russian challenger, culminating with a right hand, put Cleverly down for the first time in his professional career with 45 seconds to go in the round.  Cleverly was knocked down again in the round with 30 seconds to go, this time via another right hand by Kovalev.  Cleverly was very luck to survive the round and was visibly hurt at the end of the ring and was very wobbly as he headed back to the corner, with some help from referee Terry O’Conner.  In fact, the argument could be made that the only reason Cleverly was able to survive the round and not have the fight stopped at that point is because he was fighting in his home country.  It would not matter however as in round 4, Kovalev attacked and swarmed a still wobbly Cleverly.  With Cleverly hurt and at the end of another assault by Kovalev, referee O’Conner had no choice but stepped in and call a halt to the contest with 21 seconds into round 4.

Kovalev2

With this win, Sergey Kovalev is now a major player in the Light Heavyweight division as well as one on the hottest and fastest rising boxers in the sport. He is a fighter that has star potential.  The 175 pound division is becoming one the better divisions in boxing.  At the top of the Light Heavyweight landscape is current IBF Champ Bernard Hopkins.  However, what has many hardcore boxing fans mouths watering throughout social media, is a potential unification bout with the hard punching WBC champion Adonis Stevenson. Stevenson has an upcoming bout in September against Tavoris Cloud, but should he win that, a Kovalez-Stevenson bout sometime in 2014 would be explosive and guaranteed TNT.  Other interesting bouts for Kovalev would be a bout against former Light Heavyweight champ Jean Pascal as well as bouts with current Super Middleweight top dogs Andre Ward and Carl Froch.   As for Cleverly, not all is lost.  He’s still only 26 years, young enough to come back and still be a future player in the Light Heavyweight division.  Kudos for Cleverly even facing such a daunting task and fighting such a dangerous opponent.  In the end, this fight just proved to be a case of Cleverly facing a stronger and ultimately better man in Sergey Kovalev, who is proving himself to be the real deal and a emerging force not just in the Light Heavyweight division, but maybe throughout all of boxing.
