One of Montana’s most promising professional hopefuls will look to continue his ten fight unbeaten streak this Friday, July 31st, at the Eagles Lodge in Helena, Montana. Local favorite Duran Caferro will defend the Montana State Welterweight title, taking on the challenge of St. Louis, Missouri’s Kelly Wright in the main event of H-Town Eagles Promotions’ eight bout Pro/Am show.
Caferro (12-1, 9 KOs), an amateur standout whose lone defeat came two fights into his pro career three years ago, has been on a roll since suffering his first setback, claiming ten straight wins, seven of those within the distance. In addition to holding the Welterweight title, Caferro added the Montana State Middleweight title last January with a unanimous decision win over long time regional stalwart Daniel Gonzalez. Caferro will attempt to make the second successful defense of the state’s 147 lbs. belt against journeyman Kelly Wright. Read the rest of this entry “

LAS VEGAS, NV, July, 25, 2015 — Sergey Kovalev did what was expected of him in outclassing and annihilating mandatory challenger Nadjib Mohammedi in 3 mostly one sided rounds. The only argument among media and fans it seemed was how many rounds Nadjib would survive, with the majority response being “about 8 rounds”. Now it is your turn to find out how it all went down at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
The Main event is beginning as the lights dim and the light heavyweight challenger begins his ring walk. Nadjib Mohammedi of Marseille, France ( 37-3, 23 Kos) is wearing a classy Vegas themed hat and walking confidently to the ring when the lights suddenly brighten to trigger the imminent arrival of light heavyweight champion “the Krusher” Sergey Kovalev of Kopeysk, Russia (27-0-1, 24 Kos). The ring entrance music drowns everything out. It’s interesting Russian rock, uncharacteristic of what one would normally hear in a boxing ring. Kovalev is looking very serious, knocking his gloves together during Buffers customary “Let’s get ready to ruuuumbllle!” Read the rest of this entry “

The career of unbeaten Northwest cruiserweight prospect Mike Wilson continued its resurgence last Saturday night at the Jackson County Expo Compton Arena in Central Point, Oregon. Fighting in the headline bout of White Delight Promotions’ second card in three months, Wilson defeated Brownsville, Texas’ Juan Reyna in emphatic fashion with a one punch body shot knockout.
As the bout got underway Wilson (12-0, 6 KOs) patiently stalked, working behind his jab and following up with straight rights. Reyna (5-5-1, 2 KOs) proved to be a crafty fighter, unloading with a few well placed right hand counters to the chin of Wilson that seemed to momentarily disrupt his rhythm early on. Wilson, though, kept a steady tempo, working behind his jab and pushing his way in close with precise power shots to the head and body. In the second round Wilson stepped up his pace and found his mark with a thunderous right to the ribcage, sending Reyna down withering in pain where he would stay. Referee Ed Collantes reached the count of ten at 1:10, giving Wilson the KO win. Read the rest of this entry “

Unbeaten Pacific Northwest Cruiserweight prospect Mike Wilson will return to his hometown of Central Point, Oregon this Saturday, July 11th just three months removed from drawing one of the largest crowds to any combat sporting event in the State of Oregon in recent years in his last fight. Wilson will take on Texan Juan Valluco Reyna in the main event of White Delight Promotions’ “Rogue Valley Rumble II” at the Jackson County Expo Compton Arena. The card will be the second show for the newly formed promotional company headed by Jennifer Wilson, and feature seven fights total.
This will be the second fight for Wilson (11-0, 5 KOs) since taking a two year sabbatical in 2013. Wilson, who was an amateur stand-out claiming the 2005 AIBA World Amateur Super Heavyweight title among other amateur championships, has remained unbeaten as a pro in eleven fights. He returned from his self-imposed hiatus last April, rolling through Kansas City’s Derek Williams in two rounds. The rangy boxer-puncher hopes to add another impressive win against Brownsville, Texas’ Juan Valluco Reyna (5-4-1, 2 KOs). Read the rest of this entry “
