INDIO, Calif. (Dec. 14, 2017): Carlos “The Solution” Morales (17-2-3, 6 KOs) scored a sixth-round technical unanimous decision victory against Dardan Zenunaj (14-4, 11 KOs) of Los Angeles, Calif. to win the vacant NABA Super Featherweight Title in the scheduled 10-round main event of Golden Boy Boxing on ESPN at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif. Morales, who also fights out of Los Angeles, suffered a bad cut above his right eye due to an accidental headbutt that forced the fight to be stopped at the third second of the sixth-round. Morales outboxed the rugged Zenunaj enough for all judges to score the fight 59-56 in his favor.
 
“This was not my decision,” said Morales. “I could not see, and the doctor decided to end the fight. I felt I won the rounds, though [Zenunaj] was fighting dirty and headbutting me. It’s my job to get in there in fight, but the doctor stopped it.”
 
“Morales wanted this fight to stop,” said Zenunaj. “He was getting really tired, and I was starting to tag him. I often look better at the end of the fight, so it was obvious that he wanted it to stop. When he was getting looked at by the doctor, it seemed as if he wanted out. He was happy after.”
 
In the co-main event, Raul “El Cugar” Curiel (2-0, 1 KO) of Tamaulipas, Mexico blasted Israel Villela (6-8, 2 KOs) via fourth-round knockout in a scheduled four-round welterweight fight. Curiel was too much for the much smaller native of Mexico City, Mexico. In the third round, Curiel scored a vicious knockdown that nearly stopped Villela then and there. Curiel, not wanting to miss out on scoring his first knockout, stopped Villela at 2:23 seconds of the following round.
 
“After a few months away, I’m just grateful I can come back and fight before all of my fans and supporters,” said Curiel. “We had a minor setback this year, but hopefully I’ll be back in January. The plan is to start adding more rounds and moving up the division.”
 
Marlen Esparza (4-0), the 2012 Olympic Bronze medalist of Houston, Texas, defeated Karla Valenzuela (3-17-3, 1 KO) via unanimous decision through six rounds of super flyweight action. Esparza was aggressive in every round, walking the native of Gomez Palacio, Mexico with a high guard before unleashing punishing shots to the body. Esparza looked for the knockout in the final round, but was unable to and won with three scores of 60-54.
 
“I felt a bit nervous in awkward in there,” said Esparza. “That’s because she would often dip her head, which caused the headbutts when I was trying to land hooks. But I saw it as a perfect opportunity to work on my straight punches. It was also a chance to work on my body shots, which I really liked in there.”
 
North Hollywood’s Ferdinand Kerobyan (7-0, 4 KOs) stopped Tavorus Teague (4-19-2, 3 KOs) of Paramount, Calif. in the fourth round of a scheduled four-round super welterweight fight. Kerobyan, a strong puncher with a stellar amateur background, used hard and quick combinations to stop Teague at 1:37 of the fourth round.
 
“I took my time. I didn’t want to rush into anything,” said Kerobyan. “But eventually I wore him down. I feel great. I got fans coming from all over to watch me fight. Next year, I’m going to make some news and hopefully fight for a world title.”
 
Joet Gonzalez (18-0, 10 KOs), the 126-pound contender of Glendora, Calif. who is quickly rising to the top of the featherweight division, scored a dominant third-round knockout win against Isao Carranza (15-11-1, 8 KOs) of Mexico City, Mexico in a clash that was initially scheduled for eight rounds. After a feel-out first round, Gonzalez used a high-guard stance and power punches to the body and head to stop Carranza via hook to the body at 2:59 of the third round.
 
“I knew he [Carranza] had fought tough opponents before, especially at bantamweight,” said Gonzalez. “He surprised me in the first round. His hands seemed heavy for a guy who was moving up a few divisions. But I got used to it, started landing my punches, and got him out in three rounds.”
 
Jonathan Navarro (12-0, 6 KOs), the rising super lightweight prospect of East Los Angeles, California, scored a unanimous decision victory against Nicaragua’s Nelson Lara (17-9-5, 9 KOs) over eight rounds of welterweight action. Navarro and Lara fought toe-to-toe in each round, but Navarro got the best of nearly all exchanges.
 
“Lara was a good, hard opponent,” said Navarro. “He can take a punch. I went toe-to-toe in each round with him because I wanted to show that I could take a punch.”
 
In the opening bout of the night, San Antonio’s Joshua “The Professor” Franco (13-0, 6 KOs) defeated Carlos Maldonado (9-2, 7 KOs) of Los Angeles, California via eight-round unanimous decision. Franco intelligently outboxed Maldonado to win with three scores of 80-72.
 
“I feel great about this win,” said Franco. “He [Maldonado] is a tough guy with a good record, so I had to be cautious in there. It also feels good to end the year on a great note, and I can now spend time with my family. Next year, I’ll be moving up to ten rounds and maybe even a world title.”
 
Coachella, Calif.’s Ryan Caballero (4-0, 2 KOs), the younger brother of former IBF Bantamweight World Champion Randy Caballero, scored a first-round knockout victory against Franco Gutierrez (1-1) of Agua Prieta, Mexico in a scheduled four-round featherweight fight.
 
Morales vs. Zenunaj was a 10-round fight for the vacant NABA Super Featherweight Title presented by Golden Boy Promotion. The event wass sponsored by Tecate, “THE OFFICIAL BEER OF BOXING” and Hennessy, “Never Stop, Never Settle.” The fights took place at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino in Indio, Calif.

Dec 15, 2017
SUPERFLY 2
CARLOS CUADRAS VS. MCWILLIAMS ARROYO
ADDED TO SENSATIONAL SUPERFLY 2 EVENT
Saturday, February 24, 2018
From the Forum in Los Angeles, CA
Televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark®
Tickets Now On Sale!
Los Angeles, CA (December 12, 2017) Following the outstanding response to SUPERFLY 2 being announced last week, a sensational ten-round super flyweight clash has been added with former WBC Super Flyweight World Champion, CARLOS “Principe” CUADRAS, (36-2-1, 27 KO’s), of Mexico City, MX facing hard-hitting, two-time world title challenger MC WILLIAMS ARROYO, (16-3, 14 KO’s), of Fajardo, Puerto Rico, on Saturday, February 24 from the Forum in Los Angeles, CA, televised live on HBO Boxing After Dark beginning at 9:30 p.m. ET/PT.
Tickets for SUPERFLY 2, priced at $250, $150, $100, $60 and $30 are now on sale and can be purchased through Ticketmaster (Ticketmaster.com, 1-800-745-3000) and the Forum Box Office. The Forum is located at 3900 W. Manchester Blvd, Inglewood CA 90305.
SUPERFLY 2 is headlined by WBC Super Flyweight World Champion SRISAKET SOR RUNGVISAI, (43-4-1, 39 KO’s), of Si Sa Ket, Thailand, defending his title over 12-rounds for the second time against former world champion and #1 ranked mandatory challenger JUAN FRANCISCO “El Gallo” ESTRADA, (36-2, 25 KO’s), of Sonora, Mexico.
“We’re very excited to add this classic matchup of Mexico vs. Puerto Rico to the SUPERFLY 2 HBO triple header in what will be one of the most entertaining boxing events of 2018,” said TOM LOEFFLER of 360 Promotions.
“Carlos Cuadras has proved to be one of the most exciting and most popular fighters in boxing over the last couple of years with his action-packed fights being telecast on HBO. His close fight with Roman Gonzalez last year at the Forum was a ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate as was his war with Juan Francisco Estrada at the first SUPERFLY event on September 9.”
“In April 2016, McWilliams Arroyo had a spectacular fight with then #1 Pound-for-Pound Fighter and Flyweight World Champion Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez and we expect another thrilling fight against Carlos Cuadras on February 24.”
“With previous fights against “Chocolatito”, Cuadras and Williams both know what it takes to face the best in the world and will be very highly motivated for victory on February 24.”
Stated Cuadras, “This is exactly what I want, to fight the best fighters in the division on the biggest stages. I love fighting in Los Angeles and for this fight I’m planning on training in Big Bear Lake, California with Abel Sanchez. If I win this fight I’ll be one step closer to getting my title back. I can’t be stopped in 2018 and will be a world champion once again.”
“My fight with “Chocolatito” was a great experience,” said Arroyo. “I loved fighting at the Forum with its loud and passionate fans and history of great fights particularly in the lower weight classes. I can’t wait to get to Los Angeles to face Cuadras.”
Defending his WBC Super Flyweight World Title, Cuadras made his HBO and Los Angeles area debut on September 10, 2016 at the Forum in a memorable 12-round war with then three-division world champion Roman ‘Chocolatito’ Gonzalez.
With boxing fans on their feet throughout the battle waving Mexican and Nicaraguan flags,
Cuadras and Gonzalez would clash in an epic 12-round battle that echoed the historic fights that have been held at the iconic venue over the last 43 years. Coming up just short on the scorecards, Cuadras has vowed to regain his belt in 2018.
The 29-year-old Cuadras successfully bounced back into the win column on March 18, 2017 at Madison Square Garden with a 10-round unanimous decision over David Carmona on the HBO Pay-Per-View undercard of the World Middleweight Championship between Gennady “GGG” Golovkin and Daniel Jacobs.
Most recently, Cuadras and fellow Mexican warrior and former flyweight world champion Juan Francisco Estrada had the packed house on their feet at the StubHub Center on September 9 during their extraordinary 12-round battle won by Estrada at the initial SUPERFLY event.
Arroyo first challenged for the world title traveling to Thailand in 2014 where he lost a highly controversial split decision to Amnat Ruenroeng for the IBF World Flyweight Title.
Returning to Puerto Rico, Arroyo would stop Victor Ruiz in the third round on April 11, 2015 in San Juan. Back in the win column, Arroyo challenged ‘Chocolatito’ for the WBC Flyweight World Title on April 23, 2016 at the Forum losing to the then #1 Pound-for-Pound Fighter.
SUPERFLY 2 is presented by Tom Loeffler’s 360 Promotions in association with Nakornluong Promotions and Zanfer Promotions. Cuadras vs. Arroyo is presented in association with Promociones del Pueblo and PR Best Boxing.
Additional information on this tremendous night of world class professional boxing will be announced shortly.

TWO THRILLING CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHTS HEADLINE UFC® RETURN TO BOSTON

Dec 15, 2017

TWO THRILLING CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHTS HEADLINE UFC® RETURN TO BOSTON

(C) STIPE MIOCIC vs. (#1) FRANCIS NGANNOU
(C) DANIEL CORMIER vs. (#2) VOLKAN OEZDEMIR

TICKETS FOR UFC
® 220: MIOCIC vs. NGANNOU
AT TD GARDEN GO ON SALE FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15

Las Vegas – UFC® will return to Boston with a pair of blockbuster title fights. Heavyweight champion Stipe Miocic looks to set a new divisional title-defense record when he battles ferocious knockout artist and No.1-ranked Francis Ngannou. Also, light heavyweight champion Daniel Cormier defends against power punching and No.2-ranked Volkan Oezdemir. UFC® 220: MIOCIC vs. NGANNOU goes down Saturday, January 20 from TD Garden and will be available live on pay-per-view.

Miocic
(17-2, fighting out of Independence, Ohio) has his eyes on the record books. The former NCAA Division I wrestler and Golden Gloves boxing champion captured the UFC belt with a stunning first-round knockout win over Fabrício Werdum last year. Since then, he’s secured consecutive knockout victories over Alistair Overeem and Junior Dos Santos to tie Cain Velasquez, Brock Lesnar, Tim Sylvia and Randy Couture on the consecutive heavyweight title-defense list.

Standing in his way is perhaps the scariest fighter on the UFC roster in Ngannou (11-1, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev. by way of Paris, France and Batie, Cameroon). Formerly homeless on the streets of Paris, the powerful striker discovered MMA in 2013 and began his meteoric rise to the top of the heavyweight ranks. Joining the UFC roster only two years ago, Ngannou has turned heads with stoppage wins over Andrei Arlovski, Curtis Blaydes and Luis Henrique. At UFC 218 earlier this month, he sent shockwaves through the heavyweight division with his spectacular one-punch knockout victory against Overeem.

Will Miocic make history, or will Ngannou realize his dream of being UFC heavyweight champion?

Cormier
(19-1 1NC, fighting out of San Jose, Calif.) will look to put his no contest against Jon Jones behind him with a dominant performance against Oezdemir. Originally capturing the championship with a submission win over Anthony Johnson, the two-time wrestling Olympian secured successful title defenses against Alexander Gustafsson and Johnson, in a highly anticipated rematch. A victory over Oezdemir reaffirms Cormier’s spot as the 205-pound king.

A heavy-handed kickboxer, Oezdemir (15-1, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla. by way of Fribourg, Switzerland) has rapidly ascended the UFC light heavyweight rankings since making his debut less than one year ago. Following a short-notice decision win over Ovince Saint Preux in February, he secured sensational knockout wins against Misha Cirkunov and Jimi Manuwa. With Cormier in his sights, Oezdemir aims to become the first Swiss world champion in UFC history.

Additional bouts on the card include:

· Talented striker Gian Villante (15-8, fighting out of Bellmore, New York) looks to return to the win column when he faces Francimar Barroso (19-5 1NC, fighting out of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil)
· In a thrilling battle of bantamweight contenders, No.10-ranked Thomas Almeida (22-2, fighting out of Sao Paulo, Brazil) locks horns with No.14 Rob Font (14-3, fighting out of Woburn, Mass.)
· No.10-ranked flyweight contender Dustin Ortiz (17-7, fighting out of Franklin, Tenn.) takes on No.12 Alexandre Pantoja (18-2, fighting out of Arraial Do Cabo, Brazil)
· In a clash of top featherweight prospects, Calvin Kattar (17-2, fighting out of Methuen, Mass.) meets undefeated Shane Burgos (10-0, fighting out of Monroe, New York)
· Islam Makhachev (14-1, fighting out of Makhachkala, Russia) aims to keep his momentum rolling when he squares off with lightweight veteran Gleison Tibau (41-11, fighting out of Coconut Creek, Fla. by way of Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil)
· No.15-ranked strawweight Maryna Moroz (8-2, fighting out of Volnogorsk, Ukraine) faces Jamie Moyle (4-2, fighting out of Las Vegas, Nev.)
· Boston’s own Kyle Bochniak (7-2, fighting out of Boston, Mass.) looks to blow the roof off TD Garden when he faces Brandon Davis (8-2, fighting out of D’Iberville, Miss.)

SALIDO VS ROMAN, IMPERDIBLE 
Tanto Orlando Salido como Miguel Román son ejemplos claros, constantes y hasta extremos del llamado “mexican style”. Y tenerlos frente a frente, en el ring, deberá resultar en una de esas peleas de alarido, de constante acción y emociones.
“Siri” Salido (44-13-4, 31 ko’s) y “Mikey” Román (57-12-0, 44 ko’s) se enfrentarán este sábado, a 10 rounds en peso Superpluma, encabezando una cartelera de Zanfer que tendrá como sede el majestuoso en el Mandalay Bay Events Center.

En la ceremonia de peso Salido en un primer intento no marcó el peso acordado marcando 131.5 lbs, media libra más, pero luego de un segundo intento marco 130 lbs. Quedando solucionado todo. Roman  no tuvo  problemas para marcar la división y ambos mostraron físicos bien trabajados y marcados. A la hora de posar para los fotógrafos, la confianza de ambos fue evidente. Y cuando externaron su opinión respecto a la contienda, coincidieron en que ofrecerán una pelea espectacular.
¨Una leve confusión en la báscula, pero todo esta bien dimos el peso acordado, me siento muy fuerte y estoy ansioso por quemllegue la hora del combate, mi motivación es alta y Román no detendré mis planes de enfrentar a Berchelt en el 2018¨  expresó el sonorense.
¨Fue un problema de calibración, en el segundo intento Salido marco el peso acordado como testigo el mismo Román y su equipo, Salido es un profesional y mañana estará listo para ofrecer otro gran espectáculo a los aficionados, no dudo que será una guerra¨ expresó Fernando Beltrán, CEO de Zanfer
De ganar Salido, tiene la promesa de que disputará el campeonato mundial Superpluma CMB a Miguel Berchelt dentro del primer trimestre de 2018. De ganar Román, podría retar al ganador entre Tevin Farmer y Kenichi Ogawa, que en la misma función, se disputarán el título del mundo Superpluma versión FIB, o bien, medirse en una pelea de gran atractivo al ex campeón del mundo, Francisco Vargas, que de igual manera tomará parte en la función de este sábado, midiéndose al inglés Stephen Smith.
Hora de demostrar
Para los prospectos invictos de Zanfer, Jaime Munguía, ex olímpico Joselito Velásquez y Pedro Durán, esta función representa la gran oportunidad de demostrar su potencial y dar el siguiente paso para convertirse en realidad, dejando de ser promesa, y hacer que los planes ya no sean a futuro, sino en el presente.
Munguía, Joselito y Durán  tendrán sus respectivas primeras peleas en Estados Unidos.
Lamentablemente Sulem Urbina no actuará, ya que su rival la capitalina Sonia Osorio no paso los exámenes que exige la Comisión Atlética de Nevada afectando a la peleadora sonorense que estaba bien preparada. Promociones Zanfer esta intentando conseguir una rival eemergente o programarla en su función del próximo sábado.
MUNGUIA.

“Sé que esta pelea contra Román es difícil y estoy seguro que será una guerra pues nuestros estilos son muy similares y será un verdadero choque de trenes”, dijo Salido quien fue acompañado por su entrenador Santos Moreno y su preparador físico, Guillermo “Memo” Heredia, así como su apoderado Sean Gibbons.

“Estoy muy satisfecho con mi preparación y me siento muy bien. Esta una pelea importante porque de ganar me podría llevar a una pelea de campeonato y esa es la motivación para esta pelea, pues me gustaría mucho disputar el campeonato mundial del Consejo Mundial de Boxeo (CMB) contra Miguel Berchelt”, afirmo Salido.

“También estoy muy contento con HBO y todos los promotores que hicieron esta pelea posible, pues estar en el duelo estelar de una gran función en Las Vegas, es algo de la cual estoy muy orgulloso y por eso quiero darle a todos los aficionados una pelea memorable”, dijo Salido.

Román quien hizo toda su preparación en Los Angeles en el mismo Azteca Gym, se mostró muy confiado y seguro de que saldrá con la victoria.

“A Salido lo vamos a presionar en todo momento es un peleador fuerte, pero si mantengo un ritmo fuerte sé que lo puedo cansar”, dijo Román quien fue acompañado por su entrenador Rudy Hernández y su consejero Jaime Quintana.

“Estoy seguro que será una gran función y el duelo entre Salido y Román no decepcionara a nadie en la arena o la audencia de televisión. Salido es un gran guerrero mexicano que nos ha dado combates muy emocionantes y que lo volverá a dar este sábado”, dijo el promotor Tom Loeffler.
