    Kovalev TKO’s Pascal , Porter Abuses Bone, Weekend Review

    in Sports

    In the much-anticipated main event of the evening, Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (27-0-1, 24 KOs)* and Jean Pascal (29-3-1, 17 KOs) pleased fans with an action-packed battle. Both fighters started by trading some good shots, but Kovalev started to throw some nasty combinations in the third round to take the wind out of the hostile crowd at the Centre Bell in Montreal. Just before the end of the third round, Kovalev knocked Pascal through the ropes but Pascal was saved by the bell. 


    There were so many storylines at play in Shawn Porter’s televised co-feature on Spike’s debut of Al Haymon’s “PBC” series. First, his opponent Erick Bone was as late a replacement as it gets, fighting in place for the overweight Roberto Garcia. Bone was scheduled to replace Garcia shortly after the news broke that Garcia would not try to lose the remaining pounds, reports that he was dealing with some sort of illness surfaced soon after. Then, reports about Karim Mayfield taking the late replacement duties surfaced and he was even present at the weigh-in, but the powers that be ultimately decided to go with Bone.


    Andre Berto was able to stop Josesito Lopez in the 6th round of their “PBC” on Spike TV main event, live from the Citizens Business Bank Arena in Ontario, California.


    Berto stayed in a puncher’s stance early in the 1st round, but Lopez never took the bait. As both fighters circled each other to no prevail and certainly no effect, Lopez tried attacking the body in the closing moments.


    Lopez was failing to set his punches up, and even when he tried it seemed not to work, so he only managed to land one shot at a time with any damage. Berto seemed tight and focused. It was as though Berto had some more motivation behind his performance, but it only made him vulnerable.

    Kovalev-Pascal, Berto-Lopez, Porter-Garcia Preview

    in Sports

    Al Haymon in recent months has purchased a lot of air time on normal cable stations. Last week he had the premiere of Premiere Boxing Champions with Keith Thurman and Adrien Broner defeating Robert Guerrero and John Molina Jr respectively. This week will be the debut of boxing on Spike TV, live from Ontario, California. There will be a pair of welterweight fights as Andre Berto squares off against Josesito Lopez, and Shawn Porter will step into the ring against Roberto Garcia, both fights being 12 round, non-title bouts. Andre Berto (29-3 with 22 KOs) is trying to avoid losing his 4th fight in his last 6 bouts. He was on the fast track to stardom, making millions per fight at a young age, and had a record of 27-0. Then after having the best fight of 2011 against Victor Ortiz, everything seemed to crumble for the proud Haitian. Berto did bounce back against Jan Zaveck his next bout, but then lost in upsets to both Robert Guerrero and Jesus Soto Karass. After injuring his shoulder against Soto Karass, Berto didn’t step back into the ring for 14 months, which was last September. He had an easy fight and now is stepping the level of competition up in hopes of proving that his career isn’t over.  On March 14 Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (26-0-1, 23 KOs) will compete in his first title defense as Unified WBO, WBA and IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion against former lineal light heavyweight champion Jean Pascal (29-2-1, 17 KOs) in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Kovalev completed the first half of his preparations in Big Bear Lake, CA then moved to Miami, FL where he is finishing training camp with his trainer, John David Jackson.

    Big Ben Roethlisberger came to town,he of the back to back six touchdown games. And his Pittsburgh Steelers faced the eight straight games lost in a row,New York Jets. E-Wonder and the Docthah were live again from Met-Life Stadium in East Rutherford,NJ.

    Michael Vick threw one more TD then Big Ben as his 2 TD toss game led the way.
    Music heart throb,Justin Bieber had joined the Steelers pray sessionSaturday night,but with Jet safety Jaiquawn Jarett snagging 2 INT's and recovering a fumble,the Steeler's with JJ's defensive play leading he way,Ben and crew didn't have a prayer on this Sunday against Ryan's defensive men in green.And Vick running like a youngster at times it did seem.
    E-Wonder and Doc were also at the big fight Saturday night in Atlantic City,N.J .
    Where Sergey Kovalev remained undefeated and won another championship belt with his big victory over fistic icon,Bernard Hopkins. On this night Hopkins the Alien should have never landed as the Krusher did just that all night against Hopkins.

    Bernard Hopkins vs Sergey Kovalev Preview

    in Sports

     


    On Saturday night, HBO will be live from Atlantic City, as two of the top three light heavyweight boxers in the world will be on display. Golden Boy Promotions presents champion vs champion as “The Alien”, Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins will be squaring off against Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev in a bout for the WBO and IBF World Light Heavyweight Titles, as well as the WBA Super World Light Heavyweight Title. This unification fight will give great backing to the winner of this fight being touted as the best light heavyweight in the world, although Adonis Stevenson would have something to say about that.


    The future hall of famer, Bernard Hopkins just continues to keep going. He now stands with a record of 55-6-2 with 32 KOs, but the thing that sets him apart from everyone else is his resume of work through his long and extremely successful career. He successfully defended his IBF middleweight title for 19 defenses which lasted over an 11 year span. He may not have won every fight, but when you mention the people he has fought, it’s unmatched by anyone in the sport.

    Bernard Hopkins vs Sergey Kovalev Preview

    in Sports

    No matter what kind of fight is on the schedule, you can count on promotional companies and other PR entities to come up with gimmicks and weird stuff to get blood pumping. This weekend, "The Alien" (a 50-year-old guy who somehow is still relevant in boxing) meets "The Krusher" (a guy who displaces brain cells with a smile). Because Bernard Hopkins and Sergey Kovalev, two quality light heavyweights on HBO, aren't enough. And this week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor probe the ins, outs and what-have-yous of Hopkins-Kovalev. But there's other stuff to talk about, too. Like last weekend's Andrzej Fonfara vs Doudou Ngumbu Showtime card (that also had the absurd Javier Fortuna vs Abner Cotto and respectable Tomoki Kameda vs Alejandro Hernandez), and a few other odd offerings like Felix Sturm vs Robert Stieglitz, Tomasz Adamek vs Artur Szpilka, and the HBO undercard of Sadam Ali vs Luis Carlos Abregu. Thanks for tuning in!
