    Marquez-Vazquez Results & Discussion 3/3/07

    Vazquez is stopped by Marquez
    Challenger wins super-bantamweight title when the champion quits after the seventh.
    By Lance Pugmire, Times Staff Writer
    March 4, 2007


    Israel Vazquez tried to breathe through a broken nose for seven rounds. When he couldn't any longer Saturday at the Home Depot Center, the super-bantamweight champion told his trainer Freddie Roach to stop the fight.

    Stunned amid hugs in the opposite corner after being knocked down by Vazquez in the third round, Rafael Marquez ended the reign of the six-time World Boxing Council title defender, and quickly embraced the contract stipulation that demands a rematch.

    "I proved I'm the best champion," Marquez said after moving up in weight from his position as International Boxing Federation bantamweight champion. "He's a great champion. He's the only one to have ever really knocked me down."

    Vazquez (41-4) said his nose was broken in the first round when Marquez (37-3, 33 knockouts) pounded a jab to the nose and later delivered a crushing right that buckled the champion's knees.

    Marquez's crisp jab dictated the fight, and the move up in weight wasn't an issue as the challenger claimed the first two rounds.

    After predictions that the matchup had a fight-of-the-year look, Vazquez showed why, rallying in the third with a devastating left uppercut that knocked down Marquez and left him grasping to survive the second half of the round.

    When Marquez rallied in the fourth and fifth by continuing to land jabs and punches that weakened Vazquez's brittle nose, Roach said Vazquez asked him to stop the fight. "I asked Israel to suck it up … Marquez was getting tired," Roach said.

    "I couldn't breathe properly," Vazquez said. "I was able to breathe through my mouth, but I couldn't breathe through my nose at all, and I was taking a lot of shots because of it."

    A Showtime television microphone picked up Vazquez telling Roach at the end of the seventh, "I can't do it anymore."

    Said Roach: "His nose is more important than the fight."

    While two judges had Marquez leading, 67-65, through seven rounds, judge Jack Reiss had the bout scored even, 66-66, when referee Raul Caiz Jr. hugged Vazquez and waved his right arm to symbolize the corner was stopping the fight before the eighth round started.

    "I was surprised he stopped," Marquez said. "I thought it was close."

    While Marquez awaits a rematch, his brother, Juan Manuel Marquez, can make the brothers the only siblings in history to simultaneously hold WBC belts if he defeats super-featherweight champion Marco Antonio Barrera in Las Vegas on March 17.

    "I want a rematch," Vazquez said before heading to a nearby hospital to repair the nose. "I'll be happy to fight him again."

    Earlier, Vic Darchinyan, the IBF's flyweight champion, scored a 12th-round technical knockout of Mexico's Victor Burgos to complete a one-sided bout.

    Darchinyan (28-0, 22 KOs) cruised to his sixth successful title defense by repeatedly landing his whipping left hand. The southpaw from Sydney, Australia, knocked down Burgos in the second round by unleashing a left to the challenger's stomach.

    Burgos (39-15-3) continually backpedaled in the fight and although his occasional good counterpunches thrilled a partisan crowd and once sent Darchinyan tripping backward into the ropes in the seventh round, he only won one round on one judge's scorecard.

    Darchinyan's 10th-round flurry in the closing minute left Burgos staggering, with a mouse puffing under his right eye. Seconds after Burgos' fifth slip of the bout, Darchinyan ended the fight with a modest attack.

    Ringside physician Paul Wallace observed Burgos, 31, losing temporary consciousness and slumping on a stool after referee Jon Schorle stopped the fight, so he ordered Burgos to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center for observation.

    "He was pretty hurt throughout the fight, he took a lot of heavy punches, not a lot of jabs" Wallace said.

    Re: Marquez-Vazquez Results & Discussion 3/3/07

    Great bout while it lasted between Marquez and Vasquez. Marquez had the edge and really looked very good with his correct style. Vasquez loomed dangerous at all times. I saw it going down to the wire. Too bad about the injury.
    I said it first here on the Zone. Darchinyan is a very very dangerous guy, like a Sam Langford. No one near his weight wants him. My prayers to a tough as nails man like Burgos, that he comes through this thing. Vic just might be the strongest flyweight in body strength I have ever seen.

    Boxer suffers brain injury
    By Robert Morales Staff Writer

    Victor Burgos on Saturday suffered a serious brain injury during his bout against flyweight champion Vic Darchinyan at Home Depot Center in Carson and had surgery to relieve pressure from a blood clot on his brain, promoter Gary Shaw said Sunday.

    Darchinyan stopped Burgos in the 12th round. Burgos had been decked by a body punch in the second round. He was not knocked down again, but took a lot of punishment to the head from the hard-hitting Darchinyan. After referee Jon Schorle stopped the fight at 1:27 of the final round, Burgos began to slip close to unconsciousness, ringside physician Dr. Paul Wallace said.

    Burgos was transported to Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, where he underwent surgery late Saturday.

    "He had a brain bleed and he was operated on last night," Shaw said. "The bleeding has been stopped. And he appears today to be in stable condition."

    Shaw said Burgos, 32, was in serious trouble at the hospital.

    "Last night it was touch and go, to be candid," Shaw said. "Today, it appears to be better."

    Shaw said he tried to visit Burgos

    on Sunday, but he was turned away. Shaw said he was told by a representative of Don King Productions, which promotes Burgos, that Burgos' wife was traveling in from Mexico and only after she arrives today will Shaw or anyone else be allowed to visit.
    Shaw, who promotes Darchinyan, is president of Gary Shaw Productions, the lead promoter for Saturday's card.

    "It's a bittersweet victory in so far as when you have a down fighter in the hospital with a serious injury, it is very difficult to have an enjoyable night and have a real victory celebration because there is no celebration in that victory," Shaw said.

    "Vic understood that. That is why he didn't celebrate in the ring. Vic wanted to go to the hospital today, but they wouldn't let him in."

    Victor Burgos has blood clot removed from brain
    Boxer was hurt during bout with Vic Darchinyan on Saturday at Home Depot Center and remains in a medically induced coma.
    By Lance Pugmire, Times Staff Writer
    March 5, 2007


    Doctors removed a blood clot from the swollen brain of flyweight boxer Victor Burgos late Saturday after the veteran fighter from Mexico suffered a 12th-round knockout loss to International Boxing Federation champion Vic Darchinyan at the Home Depot Center in Carson.

    The IBF's former junior-flyweight champion, Burgos, 32, underwent the emergency operation at Los Angeles County Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance, and was kept in the intensive-care unit through Sunday in a medically induced coma to further reduce the brain swelling, hospital officials reported to Burgos' promoter, Don King Productions.

    In a King statement, doctors reported Burgos has shown signs of movement they described as positive.

    "I urge everyone to join me in prayer for Victor Burgos and his family," King said in a prepared statement Sunday night. "I know he's fighting right now to come through this because a brave fighter is what he's always been. Now we need God's help to see him back to health."

    Burgos (39-15-3) was outclassed by the unbeaten Darchinyan (28-0, 22 knockouts) in the bout, suffering a second-round knockdown and absorbing several hard left-handed punches by the southpaw Darchinyan.

    A last-minute flurry by Darchinyan in the 10th round had some ringside observers urging that the fight be stopped. California State Athletic Commission Executive Director Armando Garcia was ringside, and ringside physician Dr. Paul Wallace said referee Jon Schorle asked Burgos and his corner if the Tijuana fighter was capable of continuing.

    "They both wanted to move forward," Wallace said.

    When Schorle ultimately stopped the fight less than two minutes into the 12th round, Burgos temporarily lost consciousness and slumped on his stool, Wallace said. He was removed from the ring by stretcher.

    "It's always difficult to determine what's going on with a fighter like this who's tired and hurt; you're always concerned about a brain injury," Wallace said Saturday.

    Darchinyan praised his opponent as "a hero."

    Burgos claimed the junior-flyweight belt in 2002 by defeating Alex Sanchez at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas, then moved up in weight in 2005. He was raised in Puebla, Mexico, by his brothers after both of his parents died before his 11th birthday.

    He has been joined at the hospital by his wife, Claudia, his manager, Roberto Sandoval, and several family members and friends. The boxer has three daughters.

    Does the Marquez win make him new lineal 122?

    That title has been vacant since Gomez moved up!

    Re: Marquez-Vazquez Results & Discussion 3/3/07

    I think the case can be made that Vasquez was lineal coming in (and I have agreed with Ring in recognizing his as such).

    Since the topic of titles has come up, I still think you guys should reconsider the vacant title at 35. Whether you like the start point at Castillo-Lazcano (when those two were ranked by just about everyone at 1-2) or at Castillo-Corrales I, it's hard to argue that Casamayor is not the legit lightweight champ.

    Re: Marquez-Vazquez Results & Discussion 3/3/07

    Here's me adding two cents...

    Lazcano, Castillo, Freitas and Julio Diaz were generally the top of 135 in 2004; Corrales came up. Lazcano-Castillo, Corrales-Freitas and Castillo-Diaz led to Castillo-Corrales. That makes a pretty firm line; I'd recognize from lazcano-Castillo but Corrales-Castillo I seems a pretty hard line.

    YOUNGER MARQUEZ NOW RULES THE (122 LB.) WORLD!

    05 March, 2007 by Cliff Rold

    EXCELLENT FIGHT CUT SHORT!

    Arlington, VA - In wins against Mark “Too Sharp” Johnson and “Terrible” Tim Austin, he defeated arguably the best fighters of the 90s at 112 and 118 lbs. What Mexico’s Rafael Marquez (37-3, 33 KOs) was missing from his resume was a definitive statement that he, and he alone, was king of the world. He never got that in the division he has dominated since 2003. There was little doubt that he was the world’s best bantamweight (118 lbs.) to most, but the lack of wins over Verapol Sahaprom or Sahaprom conqueror Hozumi Hasegawa left room for doubt. There can be no doubt four pounds higher. When a broken nose led now former jr. featherweight (122 lbs.) king Israel Vasquez (41-4, 30 KOs) to resign after the seventh round, Rafael Marquez could hold his arms in the air under the lights of Carson, CA’s Home Depot Center for the ultimate reward. He was, finally, a true World champion.
    SEVEN HARSH ROUNDS WITH ACTION TO SPARE!

    The fight was expected to be a fight of the year candidate and...

    Burgos' handlers criticized
    As boxer recovers from brain surgery, his trainer and cornermen come under fire for not stopping Saturday's fight.
    By Lance Pugmire, Times Staff Writer
    March 6, 2007


    Boxer Victor Burgos and his trainer-manager Roberto Sandoval have been like family. For Burgos, whose parents died before he turned 11, Sandoval has become like a big brother in their decade-long relationship, stepping in as the godfather of one of the boxer's children.

    Considering that bond, Sandoval would never knowingly risk Burgos' life, says a member of the fighter's promotion team.

    But Sandoval and the rest of Burgos' corner came under fire Monday as the debate intensified over Burgos' late-round handling in a 12th-round technical knockout loss to flyweight world champion Vic Darchinyan on Saturday night. Burgos temporarily lost consciousness after the fight and later underwent brain surgery after a blood clot was detected by doctors.

    Burgos is in a medically induced coma at Harbor-UCLA Medical Center in Torrance. Juan Gonzalez, a boxing operations member of the Don King Productions team that promotes Burgos, said Monday that Burgos is moving his arms and legs as he rests through the coma, which was induced to allow his brain swelling to subside. The boxer also is occasionally opening his eyes.

    Meantime, the California State Athletic Commission announced Monday that it would investigate all aspects of Burgos' injury, and Darchinyan's promoter and trainer said Sandoval should have ended the bout sooner.

    "Candidly, I think Burgos' corner had opportunities to throw in the towel," said Gary Shaw, Darchinyan's promoter. "They knew the score was one-sided, you saw Burgos backpedaling and trying to stay out of danger in the later rounds. My personal belief in situations like that is that you err on the side of caution, and decide you'll live to fight another day."

    Darchinyan's trainer, Billy Hussein, criticized Sandoval for not stopping the mismatch.

    "If it was my fighter, I wouldn't have hesitated to stop it in Round 6 or 7," Hussein told the Sydney Morning Herald. "I don't want to be part of something like this — it's the worst moment of our short careers. Fighters show you signs out there, and you have to save them from themselves because they don't want to quit. You should know your fighter, and if you don't, you should not be training."

    The 31-year-old Burgos (39-15-3) was dominated by International Boxing Federation champion Darchinyan (28-0, 22 knockouts) at the Home Depot Center.

    Darchinyan knocked down Burgos, a former IBF junior-flyweight champion, in the second round of a mandatory title defense, and the southpaw champion from Australia pounded Burgos with a left that Shaw describes as a "whipping hammer."

    Darchinyan unleashed a barrage of lefts to Burgos' body and head in the ninth round, and threw 15 unanswered lefts in the last minute of the 10th round. A mouse had raised under Burgos' right eye, and some veteran boxing writers at ringside said then they believed referee Jon Schorle should stop the fight.

    "I don't think the referee made a mistake," Shaw said. "Burgos was still throwing combinations."

    Present at ringside were California State Athletic Commission executive officer Armando Garcia, assistant executive officer Susan Lancara, ringside physician Paul Wallace and four emergency medical technicians, but the decision to let the fight proceed was left to Schorle, Shaw said.

    The referee consulted with Burgos and Sandoval after the ninth and 10th rounds, Wallace said, and granted their wish to "go forward." Burgos was clearly wobbly. His slip to the canvas in the 12th round was his fifth of the fight.

    Gonzalez said the comments critical of Burgos' corner are "very disrespectful at this moment."

    Gonzalez said Sandoval and Burgos "are together everyday, they're very close friends.

    "This is boxing, man," Gonzalez said. "There's nobody to blame. They knew what they were getting into, that they can get hurt like that."

    Darchinyan is "upset and shook" by his opponent's ring injury, Shaw said. The boxer boarded a return flight to Australia on Sunday but was surprised by the severity of Burgos' condition.

    "Darchinyan asked me after the fight, 'He's OK, right?' " Shaw said.

    Burgos is with his wife Claudia, Sandoval, and other friends and family members at the hospital, Gonzalez said.

    "Nobody in the family is saying anything critical about the fight going on," until the 12th round, Gonzalez said. "They know how Burgos is. When they talked about stopping it after the ninth and 10th, he told them, 'Don't do that to me. No way.' "

    Gonzalez speculated that allowing the fight to continue was "maybe a good sign."

    Burgos had planned to be driven back to Tijuana immediately after the fight so he could be home with his three daughters.

    "Imagine if they stop the fight in the 10th, and he leaves with that [clot] in his head," Gonzalez said. "Maybe he dies on the car ride to Tijuana."

    Yet, Gonzalez acknowledged that the referee asking Burgos if he was OK to continue was not a question worth asking.

    "When you're a warrior, you're trained to fight no matter how you feel," Gonzalez said. "It's almost impossible to ask these guys if they want to quit. This kid has loved the sport his whole life. Everything he does is for his kids. He knows as a boxer from Mexico to give nothing less than his everything."

    Cliff: But what about Chico getting KO'd by the overweight Castillo? Does that not count because Castillo was overweight? If so, does Chico's loss to Casa not count because he (Chico) was overweight?

    Todd: Castillo-Corrales II was a non-title fight period. It has always been accepted that even when a champ loses his title at the scales, the man he is fighting can win it and the fight was for all of the recognized titles affiliated going in. So, yes, Casa is the lightweight champ.
