HyeFighter Bernetsyan Still Undefeated

A smoker at the off-strip Silverton Casino last night saw a return to local boxing in Las Vegas with a half-dozen four-rounders and a sixer. The card, promoted by Roy Englebrecht and billed as “Battle in the Backyard” featured a handful of young prospects who kept their records clean against opponents ranging from lifeless to live.

Lightweight HyeFighter Artur “The Punisher” Bernetsyan, of Glendale, Calif., had to work the hardest for his win. In his six-round main event, the Armenian southpaw had to dig deep to pull out a win from Rynell Griffin, of New Orleans, who proved a leap up in class from the tomato cans he kicked around in his first four bouts.

The first two rounds were all Bernetsyan. Though Griffin was certainly game, his wide shots did little to dissuade Bernetsyan from bashing him with occasional right hooks.

The most damage came from two accidental head bangings – at least for Bernetsyan, who came out in round three with a protruding knob on his forehead. After a third clash of noggins, the doc was summoned ringside for a look-see. The fight continued but, from this point on, Griffin was suddenly live. Griffin poured on the aggression in what turned out to be a close round.

The fourth frame, also very competitive and marked with yet a fourth clash-o-heads, became a war of right hands – Bernetsyan’s hook and Griffin’s straight shot. The two stood in front of one another through the fifth, banging away, Bernetsyan mixing it up with body shots, and Griffin headhunting. Tiring, the Armenian sought to tie up through the sixth though Griffin was as game as ever.

After six, the judges ruled in favor of Bernetsyan, 59-55 twice and 58-56. Fightnews had it for the Armenian, 58-56.

Bernetsyan remains undefeated, climbing to 5-0, 2 KOs, while Griffin drops his second bout in a row, falling to 6-4-1, 2 KOs.

HyeFighter Parisyan vs Hallman Official for UFC 123 in Detroit


A welterweight bout between returning HyeFighter Karo Parisyan (19-5 MMA, 9-3 UFC) and Dennis Hallman (41-13-2 MMA, 1-4 UFC) and a middleweight fight between Gerald Harris (17-2 MMA, 3-0 UFC) and newcomer Maiquel Falcao (25-3 MMA, 0-0 UFC) are both official for UFC 123.

UFC 123 takes place Nov. 20 at The Palace of Auburn Hills in suburban Detroit. A light-heavyweight bout between former champs Quinton “Rampage” Jackson and Lyoto Machida headlines the pay-per-view portion of the show.

It’s not known if Parisyan vs. Hallman and Harris vs. Falcao will get main-card or preliminary-card placement.

MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) recently passed along news of both bouts.

UFC president Dana White recently said Parisyan never again would fight in the octagon when the Armenian-American fighter withdrew from a scheduled matchup with submission specialist Dustin Hazelett this past November. It was the second last-minute withdrawal for Parisyan, who also bowed out of a fight against Yoshiyuki Yoshida at UFC 88 with a back injury.

But the Los Angeles native did not give up on a return. He campaigned publicly for another shot in the UFC following a second-round victory over Ben Mortimer at a recent Impact FC event. He’s now 4-1 (with one no-contest) in his past six fights.

His upcoming opponent, Hallman, returns to action after a key victory over Ben Saunders at UFC 117. A significant underdog, the Northwest veteran used his significant advantage on the mat to cruise ahead on the judges’ scorecards for a unanimous-decision victory. The win, which followed a heart-breaking late-fight knockout loss to John Howard at the The Ultimate Fighter 10 Finale, likely saved his UFC career.

Meanwhile, Falcao, a Chute Boxe product, brings an impressive record to the octagon that includes a stunning total of 24 finishes among his 25 career wins. Among those stoppages, 21 have come via knockout. “Big Rig,” who has fought just once in 2010, has finished his past seven opponents in the first round, and his lone career decision came in 2004.

Harris brings his own 10-fight win streak to the cage. A cast member on “The Ultimate Fighter 7,” Harris was released by the promotion following his appearance but returned to the UFC in January and has since earned three-straight knockout victories over the likes of John Salter, Mario Miranda and Dave Branch.

The official UFC 123 card now includes:

MAIN CARD

* Quinton “Rampage” Jackson vs. Lyoto Machida
* Matt Hughes vs. B.J. Penn
* Joe Lauzon vs. George Sotiropoulos*
* Mark Munoz vs. Aaron Simpson
* Tim Boetsch vs. Phil Davis*

PRELIMINARY CARD

* Dennis Hallman vs. Karo Parisyan
* Maiquel Falcao vs. Gerald Harris
* Matt Brown vs. Rory MacDonald*
* Nik Lentz vs. Tyson Griffin*
* Paul Kelly vs. Gabe Ruediger*
* Darren Elkins vs. Edson Barboza*

* – Not officially announced

HyeFighter Abraham to Fight Froch for the WBC Belt


HyeFighter King Arthur Abraham and Carl “The Cobra” Froch will not only be fighting for a spot in the Super Six World Boxing Classic Semi-Finals when they clash in Helsinki on November 27. Following an appeal from Team Sauerland, the WBC ruled that the vacant WBC Super-Middleweight Title will also be at stake. “That is fantastic news,” King Arthur said. “It is like a dream coming true for me. Ever since I vacated my IBF Middleweight Title to battle it out with the world´s best fighters at Super-Middleweight, it has been my goal to become champion again. The moment has finally arrived. I am very excited and I cannot wait to get into the ring with Froch.”

The Super Six tournament has already seen the crowning of two new champions. In November, Andre Ward dethroned then-WBA-Titlist Mikkel Kessler. The Viking Warrior bounced back with a spectacular victory over WBC-Champion Carl Froch. When an eye injury forced Kessler to withdraw from the tournament in August, he was elevated to “Champion Emeritus” by the WBC, granting him the right to face the champion on his return. Ward and Dirrell were to fight for the vacant WBC title, but Team Sauerland successfully protested the decision, meaning that Abraham and Froch will now determine the new WBC Super-Middleweight Champion when they collide at Helsinki´s famous Hartwall Areena. “We welcome the WBC´s decision,” said Chris Meyer, General Manager of Team Sauerland. “We are very happy for King Arthur. On November 27, he will finally be world champion again.”

HyeFighter Darchinyan in the SHOWTIME Bantam Tourney

SHOWTIME® Sports hosted a press conference Thursday at The Conga Room , L.A. Live, to formally introduce and discuss “BANTAMWEIGHT TOURNAMENT: WINNER TAKES ALL” that begins Saturday, Dec. 11, live on SHOWTIME at 9 p.m. ET/PT (delayed on the West Coast) from Irapuato, Mexico. In attendance was Ken Hershman, SHOWTIME Sports Executive Vice President and General Manager, the four world class boxers who will participate in the two-round, single-elimination tournament to determine the best fighter at 118 pounds – International Boxing Federation (IBF) champion Yonnhy Perez (20-0-1, 14 KOs), former world champions Joseph Agbeko (27-2, 22 KOs) and Vic Darchinyan (35-2-1, 27 KOs) and world-ranked rising star Abner Mares (29-0-1) – and their promoters.
The semifinal matchups: Perez defends his title against Agbeko and Darchinyan and Mares vie for the World Boxing Council (WBC) Silver Belt The bouts are scheduled for 12 rounds. The winners of each semifinal will clash in the final in 2011 with the losing fighters competing in a consolation fight.

Each of the participants in the bantamweight tournament has previously fought at least one of the other fighters in competitive bouts, all on SHOWTIME.

The bantamweight tournament is promoted by Gary Shaw Productions for Darchinyan and, in association with Thompson Boxing Promotions, for Perez, Golden Boy Promotions for Mares, and Don King Productions for Agbeko.

What the fighters, Hershman and the promoters said Thursday:

KEN HERSHMAN (SHOWTIME)

“I want to thank the press for coming out and the fighters and promoters for participating in this amazing series of fights. Our promise to our subscribers has always been very simple and that’s to put on the best fights as possible and let the fans enjoy it. I think we have four of the top 118-pounders in the world and I don’t think there’s a bad matchup in the bunch.

When we looked at the various configurations, we couldn’t figure out where we wanted to go and that to me is exactly what you want. You don’t go into the fight knowing who’s going to win, who’s not going to win, everyone gets two shots and I think we’ll be able to claim who’s the undisputed champion in this weight category.

“I believe the sport of boxing is a tremendous sport by itself, but I think when you overlay tournament style rules to this sport it becomes that much more thrilling. Obviously, for our subscribers, keeping it new, keeping it fresh is what we’re after. I want to thank the promoters. This was really a very cooperative effort.”

RICHARD SCHAEFER (Golden Boy Promotions, Mares’ promoter)

“This really is an amazing lineup. It’s natural for Mexico to host the opening round of this tournament. As we all know, Mexico has a rich and deep history with bantamweights.

“These four fighters will deliver what I know will be the best four fights.’’

ABNER MARES

“The four-man tournament is great. Tournament boxing is great. It helps not only fighters but boxing because in this tournament you have four of the best fighters facing each other. There’s no ducking any fighters here. You’re fighting the best no matter what. You don’t pick fighters in a tournament and this is what people want and I want that. I am here for the fans.

“I want to take the time to thank SHOWTIME for putting this show together and not forgetting about the little guys because there are a lot of people that don’t even look at the little guys. It’s a great opportunity for all four of us. It’s tremendous for the weight class and I love it.

“It’s a privilege to fight Vic Darchinyan. He’s a well-known fighter, a big name. He’s beaten a lot of good fighters. All around I think he’s a good fighter but I don’t think of myself as a bad fighter. I think I’ve got the perfect style for him. I think it’s going to be a tough fight for both of us.

“I’ve got to take it fight by fight. But this fight is really big. I’ve got to take full advantage of my opportunity.
It will be my first time fighting in Mexico so that is exciting.’’

(On fighting Yonnhy Perez to a draw on SHOWTIME)

“I was ready. I said I was ready for that fight and I proved it going the 12 rounds. I still haven’t got over it because I have people telling me, ‘you won the fight.’ (But) it is what it is.’’

KEN THOMPSON (Thompson Boxing, Perez’ promoter)

“I think we’re going to have the most fabulous tournament ever. We’ve got four of the best fighters in the bantamweight division and they’re from all over the world: Ghana, Mexico, Armenia and Colombia. We’ve got a mix like never before — future champions, former champions and current champions. With this mix, you’ll never see fights like this again. But in the end we think the IBF Champion of the World, Yonnhy Perez, will be standing there right in the middle of the ring as the world champion. We’re looking for everything that could possibly happen to happen in this tournament. This is the greatest collection of bantamweights ever.’’

“You’ve got the best of the best with SHOWTIME putting this on. You’ve got the best promoters. SHOWTIME is one of the finest groups of people you could work with and they have a vision like no one else. I can’t wait for this to start.’’

YONNHY PEREZ

“I’m very happy that SHOWTIME is putting this tournament on. In the end it’s going to show who the best bantamweight in the world is. For SHOWTIME to get all these promoters together is great because you don’t have to get fights. It’s set. Whoever wins goes on; whoever loses, there is still a fight. My goal is to win it all. I’m very happy about the tournament because basically everyone included has a title.

“I can’t express how thankful I am to SHOWTIME for putting on this tournament and even putting me on Shobox when I first came up from Colombia. I’m very thankful. After everything is done I hope I continue to have their support and I’ll always be ready to fight and will always give a great fight for SHOWTIME.

“I’m concentrating on my fight. I don’t consider myself the favorite. I know I’m the world champion but I go into every fight thinking I’m the underdog. I’m going to prepare for this fight and come out victorious.’’

GARY SHAW (Gary Shaw Productions, Darchinyan’s promoter)

“Let me thank Ken Hershman. Ken, even with the problems we’ve had with the Super Six, saw the value in tournaments. I think tournaments is the way boxing is going to have to go. It has the interest of the fans. It has the interest of the fighters and once and for all you’ll know who the best really is.

“This is a great tournament. There are four great fighters. I have a lot of respect for all of them. Agbeko fought a great fight and Darchinyan had concrete between his ears, didn’t listen to his corner and I believe cost himself the fight, but Yonnhy finished the unfinished work of Vic by finishing Agbeko off.

“Abner Mares, who I have a tremendous amount of respect for, is the youngest fighter and was in an absolute war with Yonnhy. I thought Yonnhy won by one round but I thought Mares showed a huge amount of heart and courage, stayed in that fight and took it to a draw. Darchinyan is the oldest fighter on the stage, the one with the most experience. Everybody at SHOWTIME knows Darchinyan and they know how he thinks and they know when he fight, he comes to fight. He’s never in a dull fight.

“I want to tell you how you confident I am in Vic Darchinyan. This fight is in Mexico, but I told Vic ‘don’t worry, you are the best in the tournament.’ He said, “You really believe that?’ I said, ‘I believe it so much I called up Jose Sulaiman and we’re going to have a Mexican referee, we’re going to have three Mexican judges, a Mexican timekeeper and I know you’ll win.”

VIC DARCHINYAN

I want to thank Gary Shaw , Ken Hershman and everyone at SHOWTIME for putting on this show. Now, the whole world can see at bantamweight who’s the best. I am very happy for this tournament. I’m physically prepared all the time.

“I’m happy I’m fighting in Mexico. My style is a Mexican style, guys are coming to fight, coming for a show, so that’s what I’m going to do. Mexicans love my style. I am not against them, I am not against anyone. I’m just against my opponent. It just happens Mexicans have been my opponents, which is good. Mexicans are good fighters.

“The two other guys (Francisco Montiel, Nonito Donaire) that didn’t want to be in the tournament know they cannot be at the same level. Some of them think they are good, but if you’re good, get in the tournament. If you’re one of the best at bantamweight, come and fight. Mares is a good fighter.

“I’m going to be prepared for anything. No fear. I moved up to challenge other champions. The super tournament connects all the dots. I don’t want to defend my titles and fight No. 10, No. 15. If I fight, I collect all belts. The point is not who you can beat, it’s what champions you can beat. I want to prove myself and I want to prove to everyone I’m the best. Why worry?

ALAN HOPPER (Don King Productions)

“I happened to be at ARCO Arena in Sacramento in 2007 when pretty much an unknown guy came in to face a tough as nails Nicaraguan name Luis Perez. He had been the ideal bantamweight champion since 2003 Joseph knocked him out and sent him to the hospital. That’s how he catapulted himself to this stage. Later, in his career-defining fight, he met Darchinyan.

“It’s always going to be a good promotion with Vic, a lot of back and forth talking. The Florida commission used SHOWTIME’s clock and there was an extra minute in a round and in that round Vic knocked Joseph down. It was a wonderful fight and Joseph was fortunate enough to come out with a victory. Then, there was the “Halloween Thrilla” at Treasure Island on SHOWTIME where Yonnhy met Joseph. Yonnhy had a great game plan and I give him everything. In the 10th round there was a terrible head butt and Joseph got knocked down. The referee didn’t see it, and called it a knock down. Joseph feels like he has some unfinished business.’’

JOSEPH AGBEKO

“This is going to be a very nice tournament. The opportunity to meet the best bantamweights in the world is going to give me a very good platform. This tournament is the return of “King Kong.’’ It’s giving me the opportunity to get back in the ring. My trainer and I are coming together to make me the best bantamweight.

“Perez is a great fighter. He’s got a brave heart. I’m going to come very well prepared. I’m not thinking about Vic, I’m not thinking about Mares, I’m thinking about Perez. The winner will meet me.

“I think it’s going to be a very nice opportunity for me to fight in Mexico. They’ve produced a lot of great fighters and it’s going to be an honor to fight in Mexico.

“I’m very motivated to get back the belt because Ghana has no champion right now. They all have supported me and want me to win the title.’’

HyeFighter Gamburyan Comes Up Short Against Aldo


HyeFighter Gamburyan started off strong with a big right hand, but Aldo looked to get his timing down, while the challenger looked to get to work quickly. Two minutes into the fight, and Aldo seemed content to display his patience. The fans, however, were not thrilled, pleading for some action. In fact, Aldo’s attack was so conservative, only judge Mark Van Tine awarded the champion the opening frame. Judges Nelson Hamilton and Joe Garcia instead saw Gamburyan claim a 10-9 round.

Gamburyan came out with some leg kicks of his own to start the second, followed by a takedown, which Aldo avoided. Aldo found an opening with a quick one-two that staggered Gamburyan. A follow-up uppercut sent Gamburyan to the floor, and Aldo went to work. The Brazilian unloaded on his downed opponent, putting him out after some ground and pound from top position on Manny’s back. Aldo def. Gamburyan via knockout at 1:32 of Round 2.
