CHICAGO, IL, February 2, 2013–On ESPN’s Friday Night Fights, presented by 8 Count, Warriors, and Round 3 Promotions, last night at Chicago’s UIC Pavilion, Carlos Molina demonstrated again why he should be in contention for a title, showing great poise and effective offensive and defensive skills in dismantling former title-holder Cory Spinks. Antwone Smith stymied a game but faded Jose Luis Castillo. Local heavyweight Mike Mollo, returning to ring for the first time since 2010, showed lots of heart and decent power against Polish upstart Artur Szpilka, who bloodied and ultimately knocked him out after an entertaining brawl.

The Main Event featured Carlos Molina (21 [16 KOs]-5-2, 153.5 lbs.), who had put one fight between himself and his latest loss, a controversial disqualification against James Kirkland in a fight he was winning, against another southpaw, former title-holder Cory Spinks (39 [11 KOs]-8, 153.25 lbs.) in an IBF Light Middleweight eliminator bout. Spinks holds victories against some respectable opponents, including Ricardo Mayorga and Zab Judah, but has struggled lately, and last night’s bout proved to be no exception. Though the bout began quickly, with both fighters looking to make their mark, Molina found his rhythm in the first round, while Spinks could not get close to Molina. When he tried, charging in with his head low, Molina pushed him down and countered with a flurry of hooks. By round’s end, Spinks was being driven back into the ropes and trying to stop Molina’s onslaught by grabbing Molina arond the waist. Spinks came out behind his jab in the second, a good strategy that initially kept Molina from finding a home for the left hook that proved his best weapon in this fight. By the end of the round, Spinks was again clinching, and sometimes grappling, to avoid punishment from Molina, who was effectively outboxing and outhustling him. The third round was the most competetive of the fight. After a slow start, both boxers engaged and landed some solid blows. Molina started effectively going to the body and continued to counter Spinks with his left hook. (continue reading…)

Seminole Warriors Boxing’s Latest Signing, Don “Da Bomb” George; Scores Knockout in Detroit

by on May.07, 2009, under Boxing News, Press Releases

dondabombSeminole Warriors Boxing latest signing; Cestus Management’s Super-Middleweight, Don “Da Bomb” George, sensationally returned to the ring by blasting out Mike Walthier in one minute and forty-five seconds of the first round.  As soon as the bell rang George, got down to business  peppering Walthier with hard jabs and a fast combination to the head and  body.  As the round went on, George followed up a stiff jab with a thudding right-hand shot that sent Walthier reeling into the ropes.  Donovan immediately opened up on Walthier with precision and landed another combination finishing with a crushing right-hand to the side of the head, which sent Walthier crashing to the canvas and drove the sold-out live crowd into a frenzy.  George then did his trademark back flip which sent the screaming fans into orbit. The rest of the fight card was very competative and entertaining and produced a fabulous night of boxing for the loyal Detroit fight fans.
