GOD BLESS OUR FALLEN HEROES

 

 

This Memorial Day, we hope that everyone can take a moment to pay their respects to our fallen heroes who died protecting our freedoms. Whether you take a moment to tell your children or grandchildren what it really means to observe Memorial Day, or purchase flowers to adorn the grave of a veteran in a local cemetery, we urge you to take time out from the barbecues and parties to reflect on the ultimate sacrifices made by the men and women fighting for America.  God Bless our Troops, please Fly the American Flag to give thanks to our brave & fallen Soldiers

 

BOXERS TAKING PART IN BRAIN INJURY STUDY

 

Researchers at the Cleveland Clinic in Las Vegas are studying the brains of professional fighters to understand the long term effects of head trauma. Hundreds of fighters are participating  and the findings could lead to big changes for sports like boxing. Michael Finney started boxing when he was nine years old. "My mom come home one day and says I saw a thing in the paper, there's a boxing gym.. and I was like 'sure, what the heck!'." 15 years and well over 150 fights later,  he wants to know the toll it's taking on his mind.  "A little bit of memory, stuff like that, you notice... and I was just like 'man!', it kind of scares you." Michael is taking part in a study at the Cleveland Clinic in Las Vegas. Researchers are trying to better understand the long-term impact of repetitive head trauma on boxers and mixed martial arts fighters. "It's definitely a violent sport… both sports are violent sports," admits boxer Jason Beauchamp. Nearly 650 active and retired fighters are participating. They range in age from 18 to 70. Dr. Charles Bernick, is lead researcher and is working with the boxers. "They see changes and their family sees changes... and they want information." Bernick says each fighter is evaluated once a year. Their brain scans are then compared over time to measure changes. Not everyone shows the same effects. "There are some individuals who have a tremendous amount of exposure to head trauma, and they do fine... so we're trying to understand why that is. " Bernick is looking into whether genetics play a role. He says the goal is to make combat sports safer. "For example, you may be able to develop a policy of how frequently somebody should fight." Researchers hope to have enough data within the next few years to make policy recommendations that could help the next generation of fighters.

 

BELLEW DESTROYS MAKABU

 

Tony Bellew (28-2-1, 18 KOs) delivered a 3 round KO over WBC #1 rated Ilunga Makabu (19-2, 18 KOs) to claim the vacant WBC cruiserweight belt on Sunday in the Goodison Park stadium in Liverpool, England.   It was a dream come true, because the setting was Goodison Park, which is the home ground of Everton soccer Club. Tony was, is and forever will be an avid fan of "The Toffees!" And it`s his son`s eighth birthday today!  In round one, Bellew punished Makabu on the ropes, but then he got clocked by a Makabu straight counter left and went down, but got up.  After a cautious round two, Bellew opened up in round three, severely rocking  Makabu, then got him out of there with a ruthless barrage of punches, which knocked him cold. Makabu collapsed to the canvas just as referee Victor Loughlin stepped in to wave it off. Time was 1:20.

 

BURNS WILL MEET BRONER IN LAS VEGAS

 

RICKY BURNS is set to make more history – by becoming the first Scot to have a world title fight in Las Vegas.

The 33-year-old ’s victory over Michele Di Rocco on Saturday saw him enter the record books as the first Scottish boxer to win world titles in three different divisions. Burns, added the WBA light-welterweight title to the WBO super-featherweight and lightweight belts he had won previously, is ready to fly to Las Vegas for a money-spinning bout against Adrian Broner. Broner has been a world champion in four different classes but was stripped of the WBA title Burns now holds when he failed to make the 140lb limit ahead of a defense against Ashley Theophane last month. And the 26-year-old’s management contacted promoter Eddie Hearn minutes after Burns’s win in Glasgow . Hearn said: “If you are talking about Adrien Broner, we would travel to the States for that. They’ve already been on to congratulate us, Broner’s guys. They sent congratulations, which means, ‘We’ll be in touch.’ “They can make all the offers they want. We’ll listen. “If they want to come with a sackload of money for Ricky to defend his title against Broner in Vegas, I’m sure there are a few Scots who would like a trip there.”

BURNS SETS NEW RECORD

 

Ricky Burns would welcome a rematch with Terence Crawford after becoming a history-making three-weight world champion.  

 

The 33-year-old from Coatbridge rolled back the years with an eighth-round stoppage of Michele Di Rocco to win the vacant WBA super-lightweight title at Glasgow's SSE Hydro on Saturday night.   Burns, former WBO super-featherweight and lightweight champion, operated at a different level from his 34-year-old opponent who endured a punishing night in front of a partisan home crowd before being bludgeoned to the floor and unable to continue when he got up.

DAD MOSLEY LOSES, SON MOSLEY WINS

 

WBA interim welterweight champion David “Ava” Avanesyan (22-1-1, 11 KOs) retained his title with a twelve round unanimous decision over 44-year-old future Hall of Famer “Sugar” Shane Mosley (49-10-1, 41 KOs) on Saturday night at the Gila River Arena in Glendale, Arizona. It was a close fight at times with both fighters having their moments. Mosley was deducted a point for a low blow in round ten by referee Wes Melton after being warned numerous times. Round twelve was the best round of the fight as both fighters looked to close strong. In the end, scores were 114-113, 117-110, 117-110 for Avanesyan, who will now face the winner of the June 25 Thurman-Porter matchup for the full WBA title.

Shane Mosley Jr (7-1, 5 KOs) won a six round majority decision over Roberto Yong (5-8, 4 KOs). Scores were 57-57, 59-55, 58-56.

 

VAZQUEZ BACK IN WIN COLUMN

 

Former IBF lightweight champion Miguel “Titere” Vazquez (36-5, 13 KOs), won a ten round unanimous decision over Erick Bone (16-4, 8 KOs) on Saturday night at the Cowboys Dancehall in San Antonio, Texas.

After ten close rounds, scores read 96-94, 99-91, 97-93 for Vazquez. This was Bone's third loss in a row.

Unbeaten super bantamweight Brandon Figueroa (7-0, 5 KOs), brother of former world champion Omar Figueroa, scored a fifth round KO over Jonell Nieves (6-3, 4 KOs). Figueroa dropped Nieves to the canvas twice in round five to end it. Time was 1:48.

Unbeaten featherweight contender Miguel Flores (20-0, 9 KOs) outpointed veteran Ruben Tamayo (24-9-4, 16 KOs) over ten uneventful rounds. Scores were 100-90, 98-92, 98-92. Even though the scores were not close Flores needs a lot of work before he can fight for a title.
