Sunday News & Views: More results from around the wooooorld, best fight promo ever

New, comment

We covered the major American results last night, but there were other meaningful bouts out there, too.

Haitian-born Canadian super middleweight Jean Pascal scored a third round knockout of Esteban Camou in one of boxing's hottest cities, Montreal. Pascal improves to 19-0 with his 14th knockout, and Camou falls to 22-4. Both weighed in over the division's 168-pound limit.

20-year old Commonwealth lightweight champion Amir Khan won again, knocking out veteran Scott Lawton in the fourth round. Khan is now 14-0 with 11 knockouts. It was Lawton's second straight "quality loss," as he was put down by Jonathan Thaxton in his last bout. On the same card, Bradley Pryce beat Martin "The Immaculate" Concepcion via third round TKO. You may remember Concepcion, as I do, from the US-UK Contender challenge, when he was pummeled by Alfonso Gomez. Concepcion, who was once sort of a mild prospect, has lost five of six.

Khan will next face Graham Earl (25-2, 12 KO) on December 8. Earl's claim to fame is getting wrecked up by Michael Katsidis, although who hasn't thus far? Willie Limond pushed Khan. Earl is at least a quality opponent. Khan may be getting rushed, but we'll just have to find out.

I now present to you the greatest fight promo ever made. DOLPHIN'LL HAFTA WAIT.
