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

Erica Anabella Farias remains queen of the lightweight division
Erica Anabella Farias remains queen of the lightweight division

Welcome to another results column. Catch up on what you may have missed the previous week here.  As for this week, I saw more fights than I'd like to remember.  Actually I'm quite positive I'll forget most of them...

Anyways, this is the 40th column I've submitted this year. TWELVE more to go before I retire from doing them. I can't wait...


2013-09-29 Gimnasio Alexis Arguello, Managua, Nicaragua


Alcides Martinez TKO6 Angel Garcia

Light flyweights

Omar Ortiz TKO6 Leyman Benavides


2013-09-29 York Hall, Bethnal Green, London, United Kingdom

Matt McCarthy PTS8 Aleksas Vaseris (80-72)

Vacant International Masters (Bronze) welterweight title

Hughie Fury PTS6 Dorian Darch

Johnny Greaves PTS4 Dan Carr

Billy Rumble PTS4 Ibrar Riyaz

Areti Mastrodouka PTS6 Galina Gumliiska


2013-09-30 Korakuen Hall, Tokyo, Japan


Masayuki Ito TKO10 Jeffrey Arienza

Vacant WBC Youth World lightweight title


2013-09-30 Barclays Center, Brooklyn, New York, USA

Fox Sports

Sadam Ali UD8 Jay Krupp (79-72, 78-71, 77-72)

On paper this was a crap main event but it was actually the best fight on the televised card. Krupp was awkward and gave Ali fits, especially in round 1 where Ali hit the deck. Ali would come back to drop Krupp in rounds 3 and 8 along the way, but it was fun from start to finish.

Michael Perez UD10 Miguel Zuniga (99-91, 99-91, 96-94)

Vacant WBA Fedelatin light welterweight title

Marcus Browne UD8 Lamont Williams (79-72, 79-72, 76-75)


2013-10-03 Club Sportlife, Kiev, Ukraine

Elite Boxing Promotion

Viktor Postol UD12 Ignacio Mendoza (119-108?, 118-109?, 119-108?)

WBC International light welterweight title

Stanyslav Skorokhod TKO5 Igor Fanian

Vacant Ukraine light middleweight title

Marat Kulumbegov UD10 Mikheil Khutsishvili (100-90?, 100-90?, 100-90?)

Vacant WBC Youth Silver middleweight title

Oleg Malynovskyy UD8 Philippe Frenois

Ilya Prymak RTD2 Beka Sutidze


2013-10-04 Auditorio Presidente Néstor Kirchner, Mercado Central, Tapiales, Buenos Aires, Argentina

TV Publica

Diego Luis Pichardo Liriano UD10 Sebastian Daniel Rodriguez (97-96, 98-93, 98-95)


Cesar David Crenz UD6 Mariano Ruben Diaz Strunz


2013-10-04 Club Sportivo America, Rosario, Santa Fe, Argentina


Erica Anabella Farias UD10 Mary McGee (98-91, 100-90, 98-[91?])

According to 1 of the judges Farias shut McGee out like the great Holly Holm did 5 months earlier. According to my eyes she looked nowhere near as good as Holm doing it. Farias was very wide and sloppy with many of her shots while McGee's main problem was not letting her hands go (nothing new). Nonetheless Farias remains a top pound for pound player as she advanced to 18-0 and retained her WBC female lightweight title. McGee lost a point in round 7 for using her forearm but I'm not sure every judge acknowledged it. Persistent wrestling kept this fight from being particularly entertaining.

Luis Alejandro Tejerina TKO8 Luis Antonio Garay

Vacant IBF Youth light middleweight title

Gonzalo Omar Basile UD6 Martin David Islas

Super heavyweight Basile picked up his 60th pro win in a competitive bout. But as far as entertainment goes, let's just say it was a "John Ruiz" type of fight...


2013-10-04 Salle Pierre Beregovoy, Vignes aux Bois, Ardennes, France


Nadjib Mohammedi UD10 Patrick Bois (98-93?, 96-94?, 97-93?)

France light heavyweight title

Laid Ait Chaouche W6 Gabriel Lecrosnier


2013-10-04 A La Carte Event Pavilion, Tampa, Florida, USA


Matthew Villanueva TKO8 Daniel Lozano

Villanueva retained his WBO Latino super flyweight title in a war. Lozano's corner stopped the fight.

Toribio Ramirez UD4 Harold Torres

Luis Olivares UD4 Hector Marengo

Angel Martinez TKO2 Alphonso Black


2013-10-05 Catamarca, Catamarca, Argentina


Cesar Miguel Barrionuevo UD12 Ramon de la Cruz Sena (118-110, 118-110, 118-110)

Interim WBC Latino welterweight title

Lucas Rafael Baez KO2 Agustin Francisco David Leiton

Leiton was given a standing 8 count and then the referee asked him if he was OK. Rightfully unsatisfied with the response the referee finished his 10 count instead of waving it off immediately. We all see KOs get made into TKOs on a regular basis as referees rarely count to 10 when a guy is truly knocked out, but it does go both ways...

Adrian Bazan UD6 Ramon Sebastian Munoz


2013-10-05 Hipódromo Caliente, Arena Tecate, Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico

Azteca 7 (Mexico) / Azteca America (USA)

Felipe Orucuta TSD5 Javier Gallo (49-46, 47-48, 49-45)


Jose Uzcategui TKO6 Jesus Angel Nerio

Sergio Frias D6 Mario Lara

Jose Quirino D4 Angel Ramos


2013-10-05 Gimnasio Manuel Bernardo Aguirre, Chihuahua, Chihuahua, Mexico


Marcos Reyes MD12 Rogelio Medina (117-111, 114-114, 116-112)

Vacant WBC FECOMBOX middleweight title


2013-10-05 Salón de Usos Múltiples, Ocotlan, Jalisco, Mexico

Televisa (Mexico) / Fox Deportes (USA)

Ricardo Alvarez TKO5 Humberto Martinez

Martinez injured his left wrist and retired in his corner between rounds 4 and 5. Alvarez retained his WBC Continental Americas light welterweight title. Note: this is probably not the Alvarez-Martinez matchup you are most interested in. But good luck getting the other one made...

Jorge Lara TKO1 Oscar Ibarra

Super bantamweight prospect Lara improved to 24-0-1 but was nearly disqualified beforehand for striking Ibarra while he was down. Once the bout was resumed Lara flurried until the referee deemed Ibarra unfit to continue.

Ramon Garcia Hirales TKO3 Jose Antonio Jimenez

After being outclassed Jimenez allegedly injured his left shoulder and never came out for round 3.

Susana Vazquez TUD6 Veronica Rodriguez

Jorge Zavala D4 Luis Melendez

Daniel Evangelista Jr TKO1 Julio Cesar Torres


2013-10-05 Ramatex Factory, Windhoek, Namibia

Informante News

WBO International lightweight title


2013-10-05 Sports Hall, Malbork, Poland

Right hook, good night

Bartosz Osowski W3 Igor Jakubowski

Nikodem Jezewski TKO3 Artsem Hurbo

Marcin Cybulski KO1 Muco Oezan

Mateusz Kaniecki KO1 Pawel Ochnia


2013-10-05 Olimpiyskiy, Moscow, Russia

BoxNation (UK) / HBO (HBO) / TV 1 (Russia) / Polsat (Poland) / RTL (Germany)

Wladimir Klitschko UD12 Alexander Povetkin (119-104, 119-104, 119-104)

Scott Christ recapped this main event here. I was ashamed to be a Wladimir Klitschko fan on this day.

Grigory Drozd TKO11 Mateusz Masternak

This was a fairly major upset for the EBU (European) cruiserweight title.

Ruslan Chagaev UD12 Jovo Pudar (117-109?, 118-108?, 115-111?)

This was announced for the WBA Intercontinental heavyweight title but BoxRec now reports it was a PABA title fight. Chagaev scored knockdowns in rounds 3 and 8.

Rakhim Chakhkiev KO10 Giulian Ilie

The 2008 heavyweight Olympic Gold Medalist bounced back nicely after his first pro defeat (a FOTY candidate against Krzysztof Wlodarczyk). Ilie was taken out by an overhand right.


2013-10-05 Colosseum, Watford, Hertfordshire, United Kingdom

Goodwin Promotions

Tyler Goodjohn TKO5 Andrei Hramyka

International Masters light-welterweight title

Miles Shinkwin KO1 Attila Szladek

Liam Shinkwin TPTS4 Radoslav Mitev

David Leo PTS4 Graham Fearn

AJ Carter PTS4 Moses Matovu


2013-10-05 Sports Centre, Oldham, Lancashire, United Kingdom

VIP Boxing Promotions

Jon Kays UD10 Kevin Hooper (97-94, 96-95, 97-94)

Vacant BBBofC English super featherweight title

William Warburton PTS4 Marvin Greaves

Isaac Lowe PTS4 Pavels Senkovs

Sam Omidi PTS4? Liam Griffiths

I can't verify the decision on this one as the video I watched was screwed up.

Ronnie Heffron PTS6 Simone Lucas

Alex Rutter PTS4 Joe Beeden

Kerry Hope PTS4 Max Maxwell

Maxwell is now 0-14 in 2013 against a combined record of 179-18-5. I wonder how much money he's made this year?

Ashley Mayall PTS6 Sid Razak

Gary Ormrod PTS4 Carl Allen

Terry Flannigan TKO2 Michael Grant

This was a step back for the unbeaten 24 year old lightweight / light welterweight prospect, who made Nate Campbell quit on his stool back in April. On the other hand, it ended in a spectacular knockout, so I can't complain...

Callum Cooke PTS4 Kristian Laight

Curtis Gargano D4 Mitch Mitchell

Artif Ali PTS4 Arron Flinn


2013-10-05 O2 Arena (Millenium Dome), Greenwich, London, United Kingdom

Sky Sports (UK) / ESPN3 (USA)

Anthony Joshua TKO1 Emanuele Leo

Scott Christ recapped this special feature here.

Scott Quigg D12 Yoandris Salinas (114-114, 115-113, 114-114)

And he also recapped the main event here. Personally I agreed with the draw.

Kevin Mitchell TKO6 Marco Lopez

Vacant IBF Inter-Continental lightweight title

Luke Campbell KO1 Neil Hepper

Lee Selby UD12 Ryan Walsh (118-112, 118-110, 117-111)

BBBofC & Commonwealth featherweight titles

Tony Conquest UD10 Wadi Camacho (95-94, 96-93, 96-93)

In a British cruiserweight title eliminator, Conquest rallied back strong after being dropped in both of the opening rounds. Camacho was shocked at the result, but it was more than fair. He blew it.

Tony Owen PTS10 Danny Connor (96-95)

Connor was dropped in round 9 by a shot around the shoulder while he was off balance. Unfortunately for him it was the difference in the fight. Owen lifted the BBBofC Southern Area light welterweight title.

Ben Ileyemi TKO2 Stanislavs Makarenko

Glenn Foot PTS4 John Brennan (39-37)


2013-10-05 Amway Center, Orlando, Florida, USA

HBO / TopRank.TV

Miguel Cotto TKO3 Delvin Rodriguez

Scott recapped this demolition here.

Terence Crawford UD10 Andrey Klimov (100-90, 100-90, 100-90)

...and this cure-for-insomnia here.

Jayson Velez UD10 Dat Nguyen (98-91, 96-93, 96-93)

....and most of the remaining undercard here.

Jorge Melendez TKO2 Jamaal Davis

Felix Verdejo TKO2 Gary Eyer

Moises Carasquillo Jr UD4 Steven Chadwick (40-36, 40-36, 40-36)

Ricky Tomlinson D4 Lamar Charlton (39-37, 37-39, 38-38)

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
