Justice Served!!!! Vera Beats Mora!!!!

He wanted it more and he got it. Bryan “the Upset Special” Vera ( 18-5 with 11 KO’s),beat Sergio “The Latin fake” Mora (22-2-2 with 6 KOs), off TV on Friday night. For a second, I thought they were  going to take it away from Vera when they said Split Decision. But justice was served when the announcer said 96-94 twice for Vera and 94-96 for Mora (what fight was he watching? Maybe that judge kept looking away because he knew it was a Bora fight).

Tito Jones Picks the Fights

Tito Jones Picks the Fights

Friday Night Fights rolls out the hideous Sergio “The Latin Fake” Mora vs. Brian Vera who is a spoiler with hopefully one more left in him. A few years back he derailed Andy Lee with a come from behind TKO that set back Lee by at least two years. I’m saying Bora wins like he usually does: by stinking out the joint. But I’m praying that Vera can get it done with a lucky punch and put an end to my having to see Sergio Mora ever again on TV.

The 360 Lowdown

As most of you now know, Boxing 360 took a big step this week in signing both super middleweight  Lennox Allen and super bantamweight Leon Moore. Each fighter comes from Guyana. What they have in common more than that is they both come to fight. Lennox took the New York State title last year and we hope to move him into a higher ranking and title contention by late 2011, early 2012.

Lennox Allen has really come a long way from when I first saw him. Each time he fights, he shows a new level of commitment and depth I wasn’t sure he had to start with. To top it off, he is one of the nicest fighters I’ve ever met. Guy is so humble and happy to be working with our team to get him where he wants to go. Boxing is a rough sport and a rougher business at times and it’s nice to meet people like Allen and help them reach their goals.

The Weekend Wrap with Tito Jones

Long weekend of fights, people.  First off we our own Lennox Allen take out Jesse Orta in two rounds.

2 Sharpe Allen landed a check hook that hurt Orta at the end of the first and then finished him off in :37 of the second.

Congrats to our man Lennox Allen. We’re looking for big things from him this year.

“My final pick is Tim Bradley by headbutt- technical stoppage or a no contest! That dome was designed to smash cinderblocks! If not Devon UD”

I believe that was my pick on twitter before the Mad Alexander: Welcome to the Bradley Dome started. Everybody kept saying it was going to the fight of the year but tell me when are these guys ever that exciting. A lot of clinching and mauling or moving away from a fight. No way this was going to be pretty.

Like I said on twitter, not everyone can be like the greats. Devon hit his pain limit and that was that. They can’t all be Leonard and Duran.

HBO better not screw it up more than they have. I don’t want to see Pascal-Dawson II and I damn sure don’t need to see this one again. Hell no.

Speaking of shit I don’t want to see anymore

Julio Caesar Chavez, Jr should quit while he is ahead. The close distance with Billy Lyell?

Good luck with that, Freddie. It’s like Julio, Jr is a really nice guy or something and they all just let it slide. No training? Cool, Julio. whatever you say. Now he gets to fight for Sergio Martinez’ belt? Boxing is ugly as hell sometimes.

The nightmare came back this weekend when Chris Arreola dropped a few bra sizes and got busy against Joey Abell.

Hey, beats working for a living. Chris would be great for the sport but I just don’t think he can keep it together long enough to get a belt. The Klitschkos ain’t going away anytime soon.

Questions of the day

Who should Bradley fight next and where?

Lennox Allen Knocks Orta Out!!!


Quick fight. Basically ended in the very early part of round two.

I said it before, Boxing 360‘s Lennox Allen is a bad man. It took him just two rounds Friday night at the Armory to do what Danny Jacobs took five rounds to do. Really it was more like one round. Lennox landed some good body shots in the beginning. That set up a  monster check right hook that just crumpled the guy. Orta got up and badly hurt but unluckily for him the bell rang and he went back dazed to his corner. The ref should have stopped it but he didn’t.

Orta got his minute rest and came out and immediately took a knee. Soon as Orta got up, Lennox went at him and lit him up. The ref finally jumped in and stopped it just :37 into the second. Great way for 2 Sharpe to start the year. I figure a few more fights and we get him to 20 fights and we can really shift into overdrive with Lennox.

Dude had the most brutal I’ve ever seen. This was like Ray Mercer against Tommy Morrison. This local favorite Ronson Frank knocked this poor dude Anthony Ferrante the Hell out. Damn near killed him. They were swapping punches in the corner and Frank landed a flush combination and Ferrante wobbled. Frank knocked him out on his feet with a right uppercut. The ref was on the opposite side and tried to get over to stop it but Frank hit dude with a five punch flush combination while he had his hands at his sides and Ferrante went down for ten minutes. Scary but I guess he is ok.

It was a cool night at the Armory. They had a few hundred people there and they got a good show.

We’ve got a lot of good stuff coming up. Make sure to stop by www.boxing360 to see what’s next.

Don’t forget we have Jason Estrada taking on Franklin Laurence tonight.

Tickets are still on sale.

I got Alexander

Like Bob Arum said “yesterday I was lying, today I am telling the truth” when I tell you my pick is straight up Alexander not Bradley. The Desert Storm bores me, has no real power, is slower than Alexander and can be put down

and can look pretty ordinary against a boxer/puncher like Alexander. Even the Junior Witter fight is overrated. yeah he looked good in the back end but people forget that it was not the most dominant win ever. He got that knockdown late and that got him the win.

Now look at my boy Alexander against Witter

Ok so it’s a later version of Witter but still. Alexander handled Witter and stopped him while Nate Campbell was headbutting Nate Campbell which will probably happen here a lot because that’s how Bradley rolls.

I think Alexander is quicker, faster, harder hitting and has the punch to beat and knockout Bradley late.

That’s right, I got Alexander.

“Big Six” Estrada will leave no stone unturned vs. Lawrence

If styles make fights then it’s on like Donkey Kong this Saturday at the Turning Stone Casino in Verona, New York when our very own Jason Estrada makes his Boxing 360 debut taking on Franklin Lawrence for the WBC Caribbean Boxing Federation Heavyweight title. Ok, ok, I know we have too many belts and everyone hates the WBC but lookit, these regionals are a necessary part of the sport. For these guys, a higher ranking is on the line and it’s because of the belt.

If you haven’t seen Jason, here is a video of his highlights

Who says the heavyweights are dead? If you want action from two guys who need this win badly and will do what it takes to get it, this your fight. These guys aren’t backing up, they aren’t taking no for an answer and someone is going to sleep. I know what you are saying? Didn’t Estrada lose to Tomasz Adamak? Yeah he did. But I look at the 3 losses on Estrada’s record as important lessons for a fighter with only 20 fights.

Now I haven’t seen Franklin Lawrence but I’m told he will come forward and press the action. His best win was his last fight in September when he knocked out Lance Whitaker in 7 rounds. Say what you want, it’s better than saying ‘His last fight was a loss to Lance Whitaker.”

The fight is for the vacant WBC Caribbean Boxing Federation belt but what they are really fighting for is pride, a higher ranking and a chance to prove themselves against the best in the world one more time. It’s never too late in the heavyweights and both of these experienced fighters will look to get a foothold come this Saturday.

Come on out and support your local promoter!

Tito’s Shoe Shine Shots

I know they always say ‘fatigue makes cowards of us all” but what about age? Dude, if you saw that Evander Holyfield fight last week you know what I am talking about. Old man gave up. He got cut after having a lot of trouble with Sherman Williams, saw his way out and gave up. I never thought I’d see the day when Holyfield looked for a way out. Before he was old, now he is doing this? Evander, please, retire.

Judge for yourself and you tell me, was he legitimately hurt or did he fear he’d lose his March date with Brian Nielson?

Speaking of fat heavyweights, Chris Arreola comes back this weekend on Friday Night Fights. I’m going to go out on a limb and say he weighs in above 260. What’s your pick?

So @Oscar De La Hoya is now throwing Thomas Hauser under the bus for writing “How HBO lost Manny Pacquiao” on maxboxing.com

http://www.maxboxing.com/news/promo-lead/how-hbo-lost-manny-pacquiao

Why not just do better fights and prove to Bob Arum and Hauser that what they say is wrong: that HBO is going down the toilet for siding with Al Haymon and Golden Boy these past few years. Golden Boy is getting better at promoting but Oscar and the tweeting? not so much.
