2. Ishe Smith (24 W 5 L 0 D 11 KOs) vs Cornelius Bundrage (32 W 4 L 0 D 19 KOs) SD 12R  -  IBF Light Middleweight Title
referee: Sam Williams | judge: Herb Santos 111-116 | judge: Dave Hess 114-113 | judge: Gerard White 111-116 

Ishe Smith wins first world title by split decision

Ishe Smith became the first Las Vegas-born fighter in boxing history to win a world title tonight, capturing the IBF junior middleweight title with a split decision win over Cornelius "K9" Bundrage, in Bundrage's hometown of Detroit. Smith won on scores of 116-111, 116-111, and 113-114. BLH had it 114-113 for Smith.
Smith (25-5, 11 KO) and Bundrage (32-5, 19 KO) both started slow, and the fight crawled at a snail's pace until the later rounds, when both men began to tire. In the end, we got some drama down the stretch, which made the fight much less of a debacle, but as many expected, it was a style clash that produced a lot of inactivity.
Smith, 34, was incredibly emotional after the fight, discussing with Showtime's Jim Gray has past suicidal thoughts and his climb to the upper echelon of the boxing world, peaking tonight with a win that puts him into the mix at 154 pounds.
"13 years, man. 13 years, man. That's all I can say," Smith said through tears after the fight.
Bundrage, 39, didn't make any excuses, and didn't complain about the decision.
"Ishe just fought a good fight. He won the fight fair and square," said Bundrage. "I didn't follow instructions. He won it. He won the fight. Congratulations to him."
Much of the Showtime broadcast was built around celebrating the acquisition of Floyd Mayweather, who signed a huge deal with Showtime and CBS Sports earlier this week. Mayweather was in a promoter's role tonight, and also got to do some infomercial-style build-up for his arrival at the network, with former media sparring partner Brian Kenny now playing the role of long lost buddy.
Mayweather also served as a corner man in the TV card's opening contest, as J'Leon Love stayed unbeaten, taking a competitive decision over Derrick Findley, though the judges would have you believe it was a huge blowout, with Love winning cards of 100-90, 99-91, and 99-91. BLH had it 96-94 for Love.

DC Armory, Washington, District of Columbia, USA.

DVD #390:

  1. Roman Morales vs. Jesus Antonio Hernandez KO 5R - Super Bantamweight
  2. Lamont Peterson vs Kendall Holt TKO 8R- IBF Light Welterweight Title

Lamont Peterson returns with impressive eighth round stoppage

Lamont Peterson looked rusty and tentative early in his first fight since December 2011, but once he got a feel for Kendall Holt, he took over tonight at home in Washington, DC, overwhelming Holt and scoring an eighth round stoppage to retain the IBF junior welterweight title.
Peterson (31-1-1, 16 KO) dropped the first three rounds on the BLH card, and was probably down 29-28 at best at that point, with Holt having the better of things in the early minutes of the fight. But after Holt came out fast in the fourth, Peterson flat-out took over, flooring the New Jersey native, which sent Holt (28-6, 16 KO) into a tailspin from that moment on.
Peterson would floor Holt again in the sixth, and in the eighth round, he continued to unload on Holt, who found himself back to the ropes, absorbing punishment, before referee Tony Weeks stepped in and called a halt to the action at a good time to do so. He gave Holt, who looked like he'd packed it in by the sixth at the latest, every opportunity to get back into this fight, but it simply wasn't going to happen.
For Peterson, this is a very, very impressive return, as he pretty much dominated a good fighter once he figured out his plan of attack. Holt has always been a wild card sort of guy, with perceived mental weaknesses and lapses, and Peterson took advantage, hurting Holt and then never relenting.
Peterson will look to move forward quickly as he now is promoted by Golden Boy, so fights with the likes of Danny Garcia, Lucas Matthysse, or a rematch with Amir Khan are all in play.

Soft Opening Lapangan Baru

Hari ini tanggal 19 Februari 2013, penulis beruntung diundang untuk mencoba lapangan baru yang dimiliki salah satu sesepuh bulutangkis di daerah jakarta timur, Bapak Sugiono Djauhari.
Berlokasi di jalan cipinang cempedak 2, lapangan yang belum rampung total, namun kami, teman teman bermain pemilik, diberi kesempatan untuk mencobanya.

Dengan fasilitas 2 lapangan karpet, terlihat sangat layak untuk dijadikan tempat latihan.

sayang sekali sewaktu mencoba lapangan, lampu yang digunakan (lampu sorot), agak menyilaukan, hal ini kemungkinan karena cat warna tembok yang digunakan berwarna krem, yang hampir nyaris sama dengan warna cock putih.

bapak Sugiono pun merencanakan untuk mencoba mengganti warna tembok dengan warna yang agak gelap sedikit, mungkin nantinya akan menjadi lebih nyaman.

Penulis sempat berfoto bersama dengan sang pemilik, Bapak Sugiono Djauhari, di sela sela acara jamuan sederhana, walaupun sudah berusia lebih dari 70 tahun, namun masih tampak segar dan enerjik.
Selamat Atas Pembukaan Lapangan Baru-nya, semoga semua-nya berjalan lancar....

Sedikit profil, bapak Sugiono Djauhari:
Sugiono Djauhari, adalah mantan dosen di Universitas Trisakti dan dalam karir profesionalnya menjabat sebagai Direktur di PT First Pura Jaya dan PT Panca Media Rumah Utama. Saat ini juga menjabat sebagai Komisaris di PT Waska Sentana.

DVD Greatest Boxing Collection #389 (1 dvd)
Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, NJ, USA


  1. Sakio Bika (30 W 5 L 2 D 20 KOs) vs Nikola Sjekloca (25 W 0 L 0 D 7 KOS) UD 12R WBC Super Middleweight Eliminator
  2. Adrien Broner (25 W 0 L 0 D 21 KOs) vs Gavin Rees (37 W 1 L 1 D 18 KOs)   -  TKO R5 WBC lightweight title

Sakio Bika outclasses Nikola Sjekloca in WBC eliminator

Sakio Bika was expected by most to win over Nikola Sjekloca, an unbeaten fighter with a soft record coming into tonight's fight in Atlantic City, but few expected it to be a 12-round showcase performance from the Cameroonian veteran, who outpointed Sjekloca on scores of 120-108, 119-109, and 118-112. BLH had it 120-108 for Bika.
The win gives Bika (31-5-2, 21 KO) a possible rematch with WBC super middleweight champ Andre Ward. Ward beat Bika in 2010, but it was as competitive and rough a night as Ward has had as a pro, and a rematch wouldn't really be any worse than just about anything else Ward might do if he stays at 168 pounds upon his return from shoulder surgery.
Sjekloca (25-1, 7 KO) was overpowered by Bika, which most expected, but Sakio's work with trainer Kevin Cunningham has apparently been geared around settling his more savage instincts, as the crazed BIKA SMASH! parts of his game seem to be gone, replaced by a more technical approach. Or maybe, as HBO's Jim Lampley put it at one point, Sjekloca was so slow that he made Bika look like a technical puncher.

Adrien Broner stops Gavin Rees in five, dominates after slow start

Adrien Broner did pretty much as expected tonight, rolling through a determined Gavin Rees and scoring a fifth round corner stoppage victory that came when Rees' trainer Gary Lockett waved the towel as Broner hammered away on the underdog.
Broner (26-0, 22 KO) lost the first round for sure, and probably the second, too, as Rees (37-2-1, 18 KO) had a nice game plan and attacked well, landing frequent shots on Broner, but finding he was unable to do any significant damage. Once Broner got his timing down and turned the engine on, it was one-way traffic, as the Cincinnati fighter completely took over the bout. Rees went down in the fourth round on a right uppercut, and again in the fight on a left to the body.
Lockett actually tried to stop the fight after the fourth, but Rees wouldn't allow it. Out for the fifth, the sailing was just as tough for Rees, who simply could no longer find any success. Broner was simply too big, too strong, and too good, as the script dictated he would be.
It's a solid win over a world-ranked fighter for Broner, but there will still be the calls for him to find someone challenging to fight. Yes, Broner was the obvious massive favorite over Rees, and it played out as was expected. But the question is, is there really anyone at 135 pounds who can actually challenge Broner? Antonio DeMarco couldn't. Gavin Rees couldn't. These were top five, top 10 guys in the weight class. Should we demand that a maturing 23-year-old fighter rocket up in weight as quickly as possible?

Kenneth Faried of the Denver Nuggets wins the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge MVP

                                    Faried grabs MVP as Team Chuck wins BBVA Rising Stars

HOUSTON -- How Denver's Kenneth Faried was able to sneak into a Cavaliers practice Friday night was not immediately clear. It was even more of a curiosity considering the supersized levels of security at Toyota Center. But, there he was, in a Nuggets uniform and everything.

"That was much easier than a Cavs practice," Rising Star and Cavalier Tyler Zeller corrected after adding four points and four rebounds in 16 minutes in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge. "We didn't play a lot of defense. We would have been running a lot of lines."

Faried crashed the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge all right, winning the game's MVP Award. He did it with dunks, and not only in the final 90 seconds or so, when both sides stopped playing defense and mostly stood and watched one player taxi down the runway on either side of basket and audition for a future dunk contest. That is to say, when they stopped playing defense more than they had the rest of the game.

Faried crashed the rim and the boards, too, piling up 40 points and 10 rebounds in 22 minutes for the winning side as Team Chuck (Barkley) beat Team Shaq (O'Neal) 163-135 in the BBVA Rising Stars Challenge of first- and second-year players.

Faried was the MVP, but the Cavaliers were the majority.

Four key members of the rotation in Cleveland were on the court in Houston: Tristan Thompson for Team Chuck and Kyrie Irving, Tyler Zeller and Dion Waiters for Team Shaq. Irving, a reserve for the Eastern Conference in the All-Star Game on Sunday, had 32 points, six assists, five rebounds and a back-and-forth, ankle-breaking showdown for several possessions in a row with Detroit's Brandon Knight of Team Chuck. As for the rest of the Cavs, all Waiters did was go 11-for-12 en route to 23 points in 19 minutes, while Thompson was 9-for-10 from the field with 20 points and 10 rebounds in 18 minutes.

But how about the defense? Didn't Team Shaq play some defense? Or any defense?

"Not in the first half," Zeller said.

Team Chuck had 90 points by then while shooting 66.1 percent. At the break, Faried had 19 points and Isaiah Thomas of the Sacramento Kings added 14 while going 4-for-4 from behind the arc. After the defense really clamped down in the second half, the Chucks finished the game at 63.9 percent.

Irving wins Foot Locker Three-Point Contest

HOUSTON -- Kyrie Irving had just finished saying his All-Star weekend was about earning everybody's respect. It was about the way a second-year player already in the main-event Sunday showcase -- and off a bad team at that -- wants to prove he belongs among the greats of the game. He had, more specifically, just finished making the Foot Locker Three-Point Contest an unexpected proving ground.

A win on All-Star Saturday doesn't ordinarily count for anything real, but there is nothing ordinary about Irving's situation. Emerging superstar, yes; destined for a long career as one of the top point guards, obviously; good enough to be the centerpiece of the Cavaliers' future and about to become one of the key new pickups for Team USA in international play, absolutely.

Except that Irving is so unknown as a threat from behind the arc, despite decent evidence to the contrary, that he rated himself a distant challenger in the event. In the end, he had the best mark among the three Eastern Conference competitors in the first round. He then beat San Antonio's Matt Bonner in the second and final round to win the contest in Toyota Center, and maybe even send a message in what should have been a playful moment compared to all the other accolades.

"I feel like I'm a better off-the-dribble shooter than a spot-up shooter," Irving said. "I'm not sure how many 3s I have on the year, but not as many as the guys I was shooting against out there. I try to be as efficient as possible. That's about it."

He has 82 threes on the year, behind four of the five others in the field and ahead of only Bonner, and Bonner has the excuse of averaging all of 12.6 minutes a game. Ryan Anderson, eliminated in the first round, has nearly twice as many at 159.

"I feel like I was a dark horse in this competition," said Irving, who does have the credibility of being 13th in the league in 3-point percentage. "I just wanted to go out and prove a point that I was one of the premier shooters out here with all these guys. Steve Novak and Matt Bonner, I never thought I'd beat those guys."

Terrence Ross is 2013 NBA slam dunk contest champion

                                                                       The Judges

HOUSTON (AP) -- Toronto rookie Terrence Ross beat defending champion Jeremy Evans to win the slam-dunk contest during All-Star Saturday night.
The 6-foot-6 Ross jumped over a ball boy, whipped the ball between his legs and threw down a one-handed slam to clinch the victory. Earlier, Ross donned a Vince Carter jersey, took a lob from high-school teammate Terrence Jones off the edge of the backboard, spun in the air, and then slammed home another one-hander.
Evans jumped over a painted portrait of himself and hurdled Dallas Mavericks forward Dahntay Jones for a dunk in his final round.
Ross earned 58 percent of the fan vote in the championship round. The first round was judged by former Houston Rockets Hakeem Olajuwon, Clyde Drexler, Dikembe Mutombo, Rudy Tomjanovich and Yao Ming.
Kenneth Faried, James White, 2007 dunk champion Gerald Green and Eric Bledsoe also were in the field, while Kevin Durant, Kobe Bryant, Chris Paul and Dwyane Wade were among the All-Stars taking in the show.
Green started if off by taking a lob from Indiana teammate Lance Stephenson off the side of the backboard and soaring in for a reverse slam. White played off his "Flight White" nickname when he split two columns of cheerleaders dressed as flight attendants for a powerful two-handed dunk.
Hardly outdone, Ross earned a perfect score on his first dunk, whipping the ball around his waist before smacking down a one-hander.
Evans, meanwhile, used former Jazz giant Mark Eaton as a prop on his dazzling first attempt. The 7-foot-4 Eaton held the ball above his head as he sat on a box and Evans swiped the ball and soared over his head.
Hall of Famers Bill Russell and Julius Erving, singer Alicia Keys, rapper Drake, director Spike Lee and comedian Chris Tucker were among those sitting courtside. Keys is performing at halftime of Sunday's All-Star game.
Paul becomes first Clippers ever to win All-Star MVP

HOUSTON (AP) -- Chris Paul knew exactly what to do with the unlimited talent around him in Sunday's NBA All-Star game: find the open man and enjoy the show.
 Paul became the first Los Angeles Clippers player to be game's MVP, scoring 20 points and handing out 15 assists in the West's 143-138 win over the East.
 He made 7-of-10 shots, including four 3-pointers, and became the third player to have at least 20 points and 15 assists in the league's annual showcase, joining a couple Hall of Fame point guards, Magic Johnson and Isiah Thomas.
 "In games like this, it's so up-tempo and fast-paced," Paul said. "A guy like me, that's a facilitator, I enjoy (it)."
 Paul already had the best per-game assists average in All-Star history, 12.4 in four appearances. He had nine assists and plenty of fancy dribbling in the first half and one of his niftiest moves came right before one of his only mistakes.
 When 6-foot-11 Chris Bosh came out to the wing to guard him, Paul slid the ball between Bosh's legs and darted past him. He then threw an errant pass into the lane and Dwyane Wade intercepted, one of Paul's three turnovers in the game.
 Paul didn't have a miscue in the second half, and had nine points in the final quarter to help the West win for the fourth time in five seasons.
 He tried to hook up with the high-flying Griffin for one of their trademark alley-oops early in the third quarter. They mis-timed it, though, and Griffin had to come down before going up for a more conventional dunk.
 But with so many stars to choose from, Paul could spread it around. He flicked a pass to Dwight Howard for a jam and found Tim Duncan cutting down the lane for another one in the third quarter. Paul also pitched a few assists to Kevin Durant, who finished with 30 points.
 "This game is slightly different than a regular-season game," Paul said. "You have to pick your poison. You tag Blake at the rim for a dunk, you're leaving KD wide open for the 3."
 Maybe just wanting to try something different midway through the third quarter, Paul backed up to the corner and swished a 3-pointer for an 88-86 lead for the West.
 "Most of the time, I was open," Paul said. "I was wide-open for the first two 3s that I hit. The other ones, the shot clock was running down, so I almost was forced to shoot a couple of times."
 Paul, leading the league this season with 2.59 steals per game, had four in the All-Star game.
 "He had great passes, (was) making steals, made big buckets," Durant said. "He played a hell of a game. It was a pleasure playing with him."
 Paul is averaging 9.6 assists - second to Boston's Rajon Rondo - in his second season with the Clippers. More significantly, he's led the Clippers to a 39-17 record and he, Blake Griffin and "Lob City" have helped their franchise steal some of the L.A. spotlight from the floundering Lakers, who currently sit 10th in the Western Conference.
 In an All-Star format, where the defense is lazier than the regular season, a player like Paul excels. He had 12 assists in last year's game and 14 in each of his first two, when he played for New Orleans.
 "You just want to play fast," Paul said. "I like to throw the lob. I like to see guys hit 3s. When you're out on the court with all that firepower, why wouldn't you want to make passes? You've got KD (Durant) filling one of the lanes, you've got Blake, Kobe (Bryant) on the wing. There's nothing like it."

  1. Antwone Smith vs Jose Luis Castillo UD 10R - Welterweight Bouts
  2. Carlos Molina vs Cory Spinks  UD 12R - IBF Light Middleweight Eliminator

UIC Pavilion, Chicago, Illinois - Tough junior middleweight contender Carlos Molina (21-5-2, 6KOs) punished former unified welterweight champion Cory Spinks (39-7, 11KOs) over twelve rounds to win a unanimous decision. The scores were 119-106, 119-106 and 120-105.  Molina used his physical strength, advantage in power and high activity to bully Spinks in almost every round. Spinks went down early in the eleventh and his corner almost threw in the towel. Another knockdown was scored in the twelfth, when Spinks was being battered and the referee ruled that he was being held up by the ropes. Spinks also lost a point for holding in the fourth.

Antwone Smith (22-4-1, 12KOs) outworked former champion Jose Luis Castillo (64-11-1, 55KOs) to win a ten round unanimous decision in a fight held at a catch-weight of 156-pounds. The scores were 100-90, 98-92 and 99-91. Castillo's two fight win streak is snapped. Smith was too big, too busy and too active. Castillo also lost a point in the fourth round for repeated low blows.
