Boxing News: Heavyweight Explosion Results (all KOs) » August 5 … – Fight News

Published

on





Four big heavyweight bouts on Top Rank’s card at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Tulsa, Oklahoma. All four resulted in explosive knockouts within two rounds.
The long-awaited return of unbeaten heavyweight terror Jared “The Real Big Baby” Anderson (12-0, 12 KOs) ended quickly against Miljan “The Serbian Stallion” Rovcanin (24-3, 16 KOs). Anderson broke down the game Rovcanin and knocked him out with a right hand at the end of round two. Time was 3:00.
After the fight, Anderson said, “Realistically, we don’t know how far we are from a {Filip Hrgovic} fight. I would love that fight. Filip Hrgovic or anybody in the top 10 of the IBF or WBO, WBC. We’re just looking to get some bigger names. Everybody keeps asking for bigger fights. We would love to have those bigger fights.”
2020 Olympic super heavyweight silver medalist Richard Torrez Jr. (3-0, 3 KOs) needed just 44 seconds to demolish Marco Antonio Canedo (4-3, 2 KOs) in the first round. Torrez bumrushed Canedo, dropped him, then put him down and out face first. Canedo was down for several minutes, but able to walk out of the ring. Torrez landed 8 of the 10 power blows he threw.
Heavy-handed heavyweight destroyer Efe “The Silent Roller” Ajagba (16-1, 13 KOs) blew away Jozsef “The Gladiator” Darmos (14-5-3, 10 KOs) in two rounds. Pretty much one-way traffic. Ajagba dropped Darmos twice in round two to end it. Time was 1:15.
Torrez stated, “I am happy with the result, but my thoughts right now are with Canedo. He’s a tough man, and I have the utmost respect for him. It happens to the best of us.”
Unbeaten local heavyweight prospect Jeremiah “Dreamland” Milton (6-0, 5 KOs) laid out Nick Jones (9-5, 6 KOs) with a right hand in round two. Jones missed a wild roundhouse punch leaving himself open and Milton turned out the lights. Time was 2:49.
Watching this Fight between Tiger and the guy from Lowell, what a BS stoppage.. I get that the guy was overmatched, but he was scrapping. I remember Mickey Bey winning every second of a fight and Bam. He gets stopped in the last round..Irritating. I’ve also had just about ENOUGH of Timmy Boy Bradley.. He just can’t shut up and listen. Where is Mr. Ward? Please come back. Hope everyone is enjoying the card.
Terrible stoppage. Typical Mark Nelson.
Yes sir I’m thinking the same way Tim Bradley I don’t know I just lost a lot of respect for him after he called his fellow commentator and old man and then he laughed Mike K
The boxer from MA is a woman beater. He got what he deserved.
I get it – he’s a small heavyweight and he’s super young and the last thing you want to do is rush him, but you can put Torrez in with SIGNIFICANTLY better fighters than he’s gotten so far. This was just wrong. No one needed to see that.
I agree! How about let’s get Anderson vs Torrez?
Rd
That’s a 1st round ko too
Andersons’ opponent was better than Torrez
That’s one that even my wife wants to see. After watching them both I’m praying that there’s gonna be ACTION in the HW division again.
Yes that was a scary knockout!
Overall top rank puts on horrible cards of this nature. I have no interest in seeing someone get killed in the ring and they constantly put on card’s featuring complete mismatches. Who is thinking this will entice new fans to watch boxing? I want to see competitive matches and would prefer if top rank didn’t get tv time to show this kind of fights.
The ironic thing is that back in the 80s and 90s the Top Rank Boxing series on ESPN used to put on consistently good, well-matched cards.
The three featured heavyweight fights were atrocious mismatches, and one ending particularly scary.
Add to that the often abysmal commentary, and you have an overall bad product.
They had 4 good, young heavyweights on the same card. And everyone fought a no-hoper. Why not match some of them up against each other?
I would like a chance to teach these kids to “Respect your Elders”! They are punks who need to be taught a lesson!
How can the announcers talk about Anderson fighting the winner of Usyk-Fury when he hasn’t even fought a 3 star fighter?
Because that’s ESPN Boxing’s specialty: spending as much time talking and gabbing as they do actually showing fights.
Jared definitely looks like he has the tools to become a threat while Torrez Jr will be protected and will become the second coming of Peter McNeelay.
Arturo, you should be ashamed of yourself with this childish comment. Now go to your room.
Pretty much crap…
Except, of course Anderson continues to look like a future top tier hvwt
Time to move him along to fight a legit guy. I’m not saying throw him in against a top 10 guy necessarily, but maybe someone like Martin Bakole. Or Zhang Zhilei might be interesting coming off a good performance on a close decision. There are plenty of attractive fighters out there that would be enticing matchups
Can’t wait to see Anderson fall. He supported blm and has fought nobody yet. His day will come and when it does I will be laughing.
I don’t care if he supported blm, but Anderson just rubs me the wrong way. Last night and in other fights he has a tendency to take cheap shots on the break. I mean, you’re fighting very limited opposition, and you feel the need to still take shortcuts?? Last night, he even landed a cheap punch on the break and knocked the guy’s mouthpiece out, and should have been docked a point, but was only warned.
Anderson is talented no doubt, but was getting tagged by the fall guy he was fighting, and showed some signs of frustration.
Matt Mangum: Yes, don’t like the tendency Anderson has to fighting dirty. To me this fight, and other fights before, have also showed he mostly looks good only while his opponent is in trouble, but while the opponent is still in the fight Anderson get tagged himself quite easily.
Could not agree more. He has some of the worst characteristics of Muhammed Ali and James Toney. He’s a braggart with a great record who has yet to be REALLY tested. Let him fight Torres, Jr.
Another Lions vs Lambs card.
Jared Anderson should fight Otto Wallin. His Serbian opponent last night looked like a complete amateur.
That’s an interesting fight. I’d watch it. It’d be a big step forward for Anderson and certainly earn him some credibility.
baby anderson ring walk did not like whatever that was about plus get a decent opponent for the big guy find out what kind of skills he has
YOU GUYS DON’T AND EDDIE HEARNS DOESN’T SEE WHAT THEW FANS AND LISTENERS WANT. THEY WANT TO SE THE RETURN MATCH OF BIVOL VS CANELO TO SETTLE WHO IS THE BADD-ASS, SPENCE VS CRAWFORD IS ANOTHER, WILDER VS ROBERT HELINUS PUT ANOTHER FIGHT WITH DILLIAN WHYTE I LIKE TO SEE HIM GET BEAT UP AND KO’S. MAKE IT HAPPEN ?
Chris, maybe you meant see Wilder get beat up again. Hopefully Helenius gets the job done.
just like they written it up
Torrez’ knockout was violent yet beautiful!!! I’m surprised dude was taken out via a stretcher!
Torrez, mark my words, will become a world champion at Bridgerweight. He is a modern day Rocky Marciano. A very good fighter.

What time is Anthony Joshua vs Robert Helenius today? Schedule, main card start time for 2023 boxing fight – Sporting News

Published

on





Former two-time heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua is determined to stay active, so when old foe Dillian Whyte was pulled from the O2 Arena card at just seven days’ notice, the immediate goal was to find AJ a replacement opponent.
Whyte failed a VADA test, so a long-awaited rematch with Joshua went down the drain, conceivably with his career as a serious heavyweight contender. Replacing him will be former two-time European champion Robert Helenius, who knocked off some ring rust on Saturday past by posting a third-round stoppage of the unknown Mika Mielonen.

Will Joshua swat Helenius aside and face “The Bronze Bomber”, or will “The Nordic Nightmare” produce one of the biggest upsets in heavyweight history?
Here’s all you need to know about Joshua vs. Helenius, including viewing details, prices, and more.
