Boxing results, June 30 - July 6: Felix Sturm, Daud Yordan, Susi Kentikian, Omar Chavez, Kevin Mitchell, and Billy Dib stay relevant, Tony Thompson repeats, and Chris Jenkins breaks through

Dennis Grombkowski

Fights from this past Sunday through Saturday are covered, whether they are high profile or obscure.

Welcome back to another installment of "Ryan Bivins needs to get a life outside of boxing." You can check out last week's results column here. This week I touch upon a wide range of results despite most boxing pundits dubbing it a "slow week". To accompany select results there's some recaps, some analysis, some jokes, some loose talk, some preaching, and a brief, unconventional rant about PEDs. Just read it. Or don't. They pay me (very little) either way...

Anyways, same rules apply as every other week. I've seen all the bouts I've listed below and will freely answer relevant questions should you have any. And depending on my mood, I may also answer irrelevant questions...

Mairis Briedis UD8 Jeremy Ouanna (80-72, 80-72, 79-74)

Briedis, a graduate of the Bigger's Better tournaments but still on the scene for special appearances, just may wind up a top world rated cruiserweight one day. I'd tell you his record but BoxRec doesn't list Bigger's Better bouts anymore. Apparently they're "not sanctioned". Yet Prizefighter is sanctioned? There's no difference between Prizefighter - Heavyweights and Bigger's Better other than the location the bouts are held in the world. We live in a western biased society. In any event I believe Briedis has about 20 wins at this point with only 1 loss. Briedis has won BB 1, 13, and King 2012. His lone defeat came in the semi-finals of BB King 2011 against Ivica Bacurin.

Evgenios Lazaridis UD6 Sergio Romano

Bigger's Better 23 Final: Bogdan Dinu TKO1 Edmont Baltatzis

I'm not particularly high on Dinu but I think he's Romania's best hope in the heavyweight division, for whatever that's worth. He's now 12-0 and the new BB champion, otherwise known as 9-0 with 3 "unsanctioned wins" according to BoxRec.

Semi-Final 2: Bogdan Dinu TKO1 Vladimir Toktasynov

Semi-Final 1: Edmont Baltatzis TKO2 Ozcan Cetinkaya

Quarter-Final 4: Vladimir Toktasynov TKO2 Symon Was

Quarter-Final 3: Bogdan Dinu SD3 Dmitri Bezus

Telemundo

David Carmona TD3 Danny Flores

Carmona retained his WBO Youth super flyweight title as a clash of heads ended the bout in the 3rd round. Not enough rounds were completed to go to the scorecards, so the result is a technical draw. In a different country this could have been a no contest.

Carlos Ruiz D6 Gonzalo Rodriguez

Ruiz ended up the victim of the "Punch of the Night", but got off the floor in round 2 to salvage a draw.

Billy Dib MD10 Mike Oliver (96-92, 94-94, 96-92)

Scott Christ recapped this bout, and to a lesser extent the co-feature, here.

Emmanuel De Jesus UD4 Rikardo Smith (39-36, 39-36, 40-35)

A left hook had Smith down and nearly out in round 2, but he recovered well. I suppose toughness is a prerequisite for men with heavy back hair.

Mark Davis UD8 Robert Osiobe (78-74, 77-75, 78-74)

This lightweight clash became the co-feature when Allan Green pulled out of his fight with Eleider Alvarez.

2013-07-06 Westfalenhalle, Dortmund, Nordrhein-Westfalen, Germany

SAT 1 (Germany) / TyC (Argentina)

Felix Sturm TKO4 Predrag Radosevic

Radosevic went down courtesy of left hooks to the body in rounds 3 (once) and 4 (twice). After the 3rd and final knockdown he pretty much just said "**** it" and walked off. Thus Sturm snatched the unbeaten record away from yet another prospect that the vast majority of boxing fans have never heard of. He thinks such a victory has put him in prime position to challenge the winner of Daniel Geale vs Darren Barker for the IBF crown. Michael Buffer even announced Sturm as the "#1 mandatory challenger for the IBF middleweight world championship". The problem with that, however, is that the IBF still recognizes Sam Soliman's victory over Sturm and Soliman's still the #1 contender as far as their most recent ratings go. The #2 spot is the one that was vacant, which is what Sturm (#3) and Radosevic (#4) were supposed to be filling in the first place.

But I digress. Who the hell knows what's actually going to happen? Just because I know the rules and have the facts doesn't mean I can predict the future. Maybe Sturm does get the winner of Geale-Barker. Or maybe Soliman does. Or perhaps neither does.
It's gonna be what it's gonna be.

Then again, unlike the WBC and WBA, the IBF actually has a history of following their own rules. So there's hope for you Soliman fans yet. As for the rest of you confused about how the IBF could possibly recognize a win that the German Boxing Board (BDB, short for Bund Deutscher Berufsboxer) does not, well, um, uh, it's only Germany...

Except that it's not. As it turns out the World Anti-Doping Agency would have also found Soliman dirty as they too ban methylsynephrine, aka oxilofrine. But it's not like boxing uses WADA protocols all that regularly anyways. And it's not like their findings (via USADA, VADA, or otherwise) are actually relevant in changing fight outcomes (see Peterson-Khan).

So let's keep it a bean. Soliman was merely found guilty of using methylsynephrine. It's marketed as a weight loss compound and history has shown it to be safe. The keyword there is safe. In case you weren't aware, a drug's impact on a person's health is the primary factor in determining whether it will be allowed in sports. Go ahead and make a list of legal PEDs and illegal ones. It's not a coincidence the dangerous ones are all illegal. So Germany and WADA ban oxilofrine but ultimately the IBF does not. Whether that's a good or bad thing is not for me to decide. All I can say is that the IBF is not alone, the state of drug testing in boxing is a joke, and the quest for unified rules and procedures is never-ending.

In hindsight I probably should have saved those details for a separate article. But I'm no PED expert and I'm not trying to step on anybody's toes. Besides, my last name isn't Montoya.

Susi Kentikian UD10 Carina Moreno (96-94, 97-93, 97-93)

Kentikian avenged her 2nd pro loss and recaptured her WBA female flyweight title. At best she rates #3 in her division behind Melissa McMorrow (#2) and Ava Knight (#1). Could a rematch with McMorrow be in the works or is Kentikian still interested in a showdown with light flyweight Tuti Bopp? I very much doubt Susi's confidence in her ability to beat Ava...

Omar Chavez is back! And his brother was bigger than ever...

Prizefighter Light Welterweight Final: Chris Jenkins TKO2 Danny Connor

Jenkins made his way through the tournament easier than Connor and was the odds on favorite to win before the two touched gloves. He didn't disappoint. Connor was dropped by a series of right hands in round 1 and finished off by some more in round 2. Left hooks were thrown in for good measure, too.

Thus Chris Jenkins is now 10-0 and already a Prizefighter champion. Will his future be bright? Time will tell.

Special Feature: Kevin Mitchell PTS8 Sebastien Benito (80-71)

This was a comeback fight for Mitchell at light welterweight. Benito was down once at the end of round 7 and was outclassed throughout but made it to the finish line.

If a bout is not mentioned which took place on one of the above cards it’s most likely because I haven’t got around to watching it yet. In the event that I do watch such a bout at a later time it’s still unlikely I will update this results column. My columns will be posted once a week, devoted to cards that most casual American boxing fans haven’t seen or heard of. For available footage of the previously reported bouts follow @sweetboxing on twitter. You may also email the author of this piece at rgbivins@gmail.com.
