Worldwide Weekend Results - Shimada wins title, Dickinson takes Prizefighter, Chavez smacks Lyell

Pontiac, Michigan

Timothy Bradley TD-10 Devon Alexander - Our full write-up of the bout is here.

Vernon Paris UD-8 Emmanuel Augustus - Augustus, long the drunken master journeyman of the sport, and a man who was a much better fighter than his record indicates, retired after the fight.  He finished up his career at 38-34-6, having been involved in a few fight of the year candidates and having given Floyd Mayweather Jr. one of the toughest nights of his career.  In what might be the only appropriate way for Augustus to go, this one was reportedly a close and bizarre fight where Augustus did much better than the actual scorecards reflected.

Allen Conyers UD-10 James de la Rosa - Hard hitting Conyers knocked down previously undefeated prospect de la Rosa three times en route to a decision victory. 

Also winning on the card: Kendall Holt, Julio Diaz, Marcos Oliveira and Bermaine Stiverne.

Tokyo, Japan

Akifumi Shimoda UD-12 Ryol Li Lee - Lee lost his super bantamweight title in his first defense, getting knocked down three times by Shimoda.  We'll see if this might set up a unification bout with fellow Japanese titleholder Toshiaki Nishioka.

Takashi Uchiyama TKO-8 Takashi Miura - Uchiyama reportedly dominated in this one, retaining his 130 pound title.  After the 8th round, the referee stopped the fight due to cuts on Miura that were caused by punches.

Temecula, California

Cris Arreola TKO-1 Joey Abell - No big surprise, but Arreola came out aggressive from the start and laid into Abell, who couldn't keep up.  The stoppage was a hair early, but a good call, as Abell was fairly defenseless at that point.

Josesito Lopez KO-7 Mike Dallas Jr. - Lopez has been on a roll lately, this time defeating undefeated prospect Dallas who just looked tentative and confused in there. 

Jalisco, Mexico

Victor Terrazas SD-12 Nehomar Cermeno - Reportedly a very close fight, Terrazas was able to carry a split decision win on the basis of slightly harder punching, and more than likely, an influential hometown crowd.  Terrazas is now the mandatory for the title that was won the next day by Akifumi Shimoda.  We'll have to see what happens to Cermeno, but I wouldn't be surprised if he fades into obscurity.  He has very little name recognition and is just too good of a fighter for anyone to risk taking him on if he's not in the title mix.

Jean Piero Perez UD-12 Jesus Jimenez - Perez wins an interim flyweight title. 

Sinaloa, Mexico

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. UD-10 Billy Lyell - Once again, Lyell put in a spirited performance, but just didn't have the power or talent and was largely dominated by Chavez.  For large chunks of the fight, Chavez basically looked listless, and trainer Freddie Roach reportedly isn't too thrilled with his performance.  While you never know with Top Rank's matchmakers, it seems fairly likely that Chavez will be fighting for a middleweight title against Sebastian Zbik sometime later this year.

Gauteng, South Africa

Nkosinathi Joyi NC-3 Katsunari Takayama - An accidental clash of heads led to a cut over Takayama's eye, leading to the no contest.  Reports are indicating that this one looked more like a bail out than anything - Joyi was winning handily, Takayama got a cut, and he played up the damage to get out of the fight early.

Argenis Mendez UD-12 Cassius Baloyi - Mendez is now a mandatory to face Mzonke Fana.  Mendez scored a first round knockdown and was able to outquick and outwork Baloyi over the course of 12 rounds to take a 117-110 decision across the board.

London, England

Travis Dickinson wins Prizefighter - It was a weak field in the latest edition of light heavyweight Prizefighter, but it was still largely entertaining as the men in the ring put in their all.  Travis's brother, Jon Lewis, was also a Prizefighter winner in an earlier tournament.  Tournament favorite Tony Dodson was cut over the eye in his semi-final match and was not able to move into the finals.  Instead, Dickinson beat Sam Couzens in a surprisingly decent final to claim the top prize.

Verona, New York

Franklin Lawrence TKO-10 Jason Estrada - 35-year old Lawrence, a Don King fighter, became the first man to knock out former U.S. Olympian Estrada.  At this point, Lawrence might be considered a fringe contender.  His previous fight he knocked out Lance Whitaker, and before that he lost a disputed decision to Oliver McCall.  He also has a draw against Friday Ahunanya and win over Nicolai Firtha on his record, so he's not a complete pushover in any case.  Isaac Rodrigues was also upset on the undercard, losing his second in a row.

Also scoring wins this weekend: Sonny Bill Williams, Alex Leapai, Jamie Pittman, Omar Soto, Saul Roman, Rey Bautista, Jason Pagara, Edrin Dapudong, Pongsaklek Wonjongkam (non-title, stay busy fight), Shawn Estrada, Raul Hirales Jr., Gary Russell Jr., Bastie Samir, Luis Ortiz, David Diaz and Ronson Frank.
