QUICK RESULTS FROM HINCKLEY
FRIDAY, AUGUST 22, 2014

Rondale “Give Em Hell” Hubbert (7-0-1, 4 KOs) of Moorhead, MN won the vacant Minnesota State Junior Welterweight title with a unanimous decision victory over RJ “T-Rex” Laase (12-2, 8 KOs) in the main event on Friday night at the Grand Casino in Hinckley, MN.

Both fighters traded staggering shots throughout in what turned out to be an exciting fight while the packed arena of just over 2000 people cheered on. Hubbert ran out of his corner at the opening bell and unloaded hard and wild punches that backed Laase up. Hubbert latter explained the strategy, saying that he wanted to show Laase he was there to fight. It was a risky strategy to fight with such reckless aggression on Hubberts part not only to start the fight but as he did many times throughout because of the chance to punch himself out. But it turned out to be what banked him the rounds he won in the end.

Laase stayed calm and weathered the storm. He began to walk Hubbert down in round two, landing hard body shots. The middle rounds were back and forth with what seemed like all power shots being thrown by both men behind the deafening screams around the arena pushing them on. In the end, all three judges scored the bout in favor of Hubbert by scores of (77-75, 78-74, 77-75).

Jamal “Shango” James (14-0, 7 KOs) of Minneapolis, MN defeated Wayne Martell (25-5-1, 15 KOs) of North Dakota by first round TKO in the co-featured bout of the evening in a Welterweight match. James dropped Martell early with a countering left hook to the head. Martell was more stunned then hurt and popped up. Martell attempted to fight back but James was going for the finish. A body shot put Martell down moments later followed by two more quick knockdowns and referee Gary Miezwa stopped the fight at 2:59 of the opening round.

Robert “Bravo” Brant of Saint Paul, MN improved to (12-0, 6 KOs) with a well-deserved eight round unanimous decision victory over Markus Upshaw (17-13, 8 KOs) of Miami, Florida in a middleweight bout. Brant’s speed and better combination punching was his key to victory for but as always, Upshaw pushed the hometown favorite to the limit. Scores read 77-75 twice and 79-74 for Brant.

Phil “The Drill” Williams (13-6-2, 12 KOs) of Minneapolis, MN crushed St. Joseph, Missouri’s Galen “Bad Boy” Brown (42-28, 25 KOs) in round two. The two cruiserweights didn’t throw a lot of punches in the opening round, with both fighters waiving the other in. The slow pace continued into the second with Brown tossing out sporadic pot shot attempts and Williams shoulder rolling his way out of danger while cocking his left out of a southpaw stance. ?Just as the round came to an end, Williams snapped Brown’s head back with two right jabs and a power bomb of a left uppercut dropped Brown to his back and across the bottom rope. Brown somehow got to his feet but Gary Miezwa correctly stopped the fight after a brief look at Brown. Official time of the stoppage was 2:59 of the second round.

Jonathan “J-Blaze” Perez (8-0, 5 KOs) swept all five rounds over Antwan “Lil Superman” Robertson (9-10-1, 6 KOs) in a Super Bantamweight bout. Perez spent the entire fight chasing the defensive minded Robertson. Robertson was elusive but threw very few punches in the bout. Perez marched forward, throwing lunging jabs and hooks that scored points in an effort to get a fight started to no avail.

MMA fighter Mark Sainci of Michigan win his boxing pro debut with a third round TKO win over fellow mixed martial artist/ boxer Andrew Selvig (1-4, 1 KO) of Duluth, MN. Selvig was game but completely outgunned by the speed and power of Sainci. Sainci scored a knockdown in the second round with a head shot and a flurry of unanswered head shots in round three brought on the stoppage by referee Gary Miezwa at :49 into the third round.

Joe “The Don” Lorenzi (3-5, 3 KOs) of Duluth, MN avenged a 2007 decision loss to Lucas “The Pit bull” St. Claire (3-5, 2 KOs) with a fourth round TKO in the action packed opening bout of the night. St. Claire fought aggressively and landed some heavy shots to the head and body. Lorenzi was able to take everything St. Claire had though and slowly broke “The Pit Bull” down. An accidental clash of heads in round two shook both fighters and left a gash over the right eye of Lorenzi. ?St. Claire appeared winded from the second round on but still fought on. Lorenzi put St. Claire down twice in the round once with a head shot and the second to the body. St. Claire didn’t seem to have much left in his legs from the fast pace and hard shots from Lorenzi heading into the fourth round. Lorenzi weathered one final assault from St. Claire before going on the offensive. Lorenzi dropped St. Claire twice with head shots before referee Mark Nelson waived the fight off.

ALFARO FEATURED IN ESPN BOUT JUNE 27
SUNDAY, JUNE 22, 2014

Northfield's Vicente Alfaro (6-3) will face Stephon Young (9-0-1) on June 27 on ESPN in St. Charles, MO. A decorated amateur, Young is a crafty southpaw from Saint Louis, Missouri. So, Vicente and his trainer have been scouring the state for lefties and he has been getting some good sparring at his home away from home, the Circle of Discipline. Vicente has been unable to land a fight since his exciting title matchup with Brad Patraw on February 9th, 2013. In August of 2013, he was sparring, working a combination passed on from Mike Tyson, namely, right hook to the body-right uppercut to the head and he caught his thumb on the chin of his sparring mate. The injury required surgery and rehab but he says the thumb is strong now. Alfaro, who prefers to fight at 118, is very eager to get in the ring in his home state. He had a contract for a bout here in May but that matchup fell through at the last minute. Vicente said, "As a Minnesota champion I hope that someone steps forward to challenge me. I would love to fight before my fans here in Minnesota again. Love it. But for now I have to concentrate all my energies on defeating Stephon Young in his home town."

 

SANDS, RODRIGUEZ WIN STATE TITLE BOUTS -
FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 2014


Corey Rodriguez lands a right hand to Stephen Watt on Friday night in Mnpls.

Quick Results: Last night was a busy boxing night in Minnesota that saw Al Sands defend his MN State Cruiserweight title successfully against Harley Kilfian in Duluth, and Corey Rodriguez win the vacant MN State Super Welterweight title against Stephen Watt in Minneapolis, though neither win came easy.

Sands scored two big knockdowns (left hooks to the head of Kilfian) before being dropped hard himself in round five by multiple right hands to the head from Kilfian. Sands appeared to be in serious trouble but another left put Kilfian to the canvas just as the round was coming to an end. Good action continued into the eighth where at about the midway point of the round, Sands landed a body shot followed by another left that sent Kilfian down again. Kilfian made it to his feet but referee Scott Erickson waived the fight off at 1:44 of round 8.

Corey Rodriguez was in charge through most of his fight against Stephen Watt but Watt's toughness and tricky power punches made each round action packed. Watt came out fast, throwing bombs but Rodriguez stayed calm and defensively avoided most of the punches, which is a big strength of his under pressure. Watt powered forward with heavy punches while Rodriguez landed more cleanly through three rounds. Round four was dominant for Rodriguez as he rocked a tiring Watt around the ring. At some point, Watt injured his left arm in the round as he grimaced in pain and the injured arm was a problem for him for the remainder of the bout. Watt continued to try to fight back in the fifth despite Rodriguez landing at will. Rodriguez had Watt bleeding from the nose and a swelling cut eye in round 7 as he punished Watt with head and body punches. Watt showed tremendous heart in fighting back but Rodriguez kept the pressure on and the bout was stopped following the end of the seventh round.

More results from Minneapolis...
Robert Brant stopped Mickey Scarborough at 2:17 of the first round. Brant dropped Scarborough with a left hook to the head and twice with body shots.
Delorian Caraway dropped Ricky Smith with a left hook to the head and a barrage of punches ended the bout as referee Mark Nelson stopped the fight at :46 of round 1 giving Caraway his 3rd victory as a pro.
Van Goodman dropped James Roe twice before the fight was stopped at 2:44 of the first round.
Carl Deaton outboxed Starr Roberts over four rounds of action. Scores were 40-36 on all cards.
Rich Miller dropped Nick Whiting twice on his way to a second round stoppage win at 1:29 of the 2nd round.

More results from Duluth...
Markus Morris stopped Jeremy Marts in the second round of a jr. middleweight bout. Morris moves to 5-0 with the victory.

RODRIGUEZ PLANS TO BRING TITLE BACK TO FAMILY
FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 2014

Corey "Collateral Damage" Rodriguez (10-3-3) will battle Stephen Watt (3-2) for the vacant 154 pound MN state title tonight at the Muse Nightclub in Minneapolis, MN.
Rodriguez will be following in his uncles footsteps as both Rafael and Bobby Rodriguez fought for the state title multiple times throughout the 70's and 80's. Minnesota boxing hall of famer Rafael Rodriguez held the 154 pound title in 1974 after beating Minneapolis Irishman Mike Morgan and once again in 1981 after defeating Tyrone Wren. He then lost the final bout of his career to fellow MN Hall of Famer Gary Holmgren for the same title. Bobby Rodriguez fought Rick Folstad twice in 1977 for the State jr. welterweight title...

 

SANDS SET FOR KILFIAN REMATCH TONIGHT
FRIDAY, JUNE 13, 2014

By DuluthBoxing.com: On June 13th local Duluth Champion, Al “Haitian Temptation” Sands, opens a new chapter in his boxing career... defending one of his titles. This Friday Sands defends his Minnesota Cruiserweight Title which he captured in convincing fashion April 27 of last year by dispatching Lucas St Claire by 1st round KO. That night ended a one year campaign by Sands and his team to capture the State Title. Along the way Sands cleaned out the cruiserweight division by beating and challenging everyone in his path. In the heap of rubble left behind was Harley Kilfian who was rated #1 when Sands boxed him first and is #1 in the division today. Since their first meeting both have remained the most active cruiserweights in the MN Rankings which is why Kilfian is still #1 and Sands stands strong as Champ. One difference, though, is since winning the state title Sands has gone on to secure his position as a Main-Event fighter, a top 10 national ranking, and recently won the NABA-US Cruiserweight Championship making him one of the most accomplished boxers in the state...
