The Weekend Fight Results

By Dr. Peter Edwards

A ton of boxing this past weekend. Laila Ali, the biggest name in women's Boxing returned this past Friday night and stopped Cassandra Geigger in 8 rounds. An obvious mismatch throughout the entire fight and took a good amount of punishment before the referee finally stopped the action.

The Friday night Telefutura show saw Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. back in action as he stopped Leroy Newton in one. Chavez raised his record to 16-0 and showed some of the tricks that Chavez Sr. must have taught him. A massive shot to the body caused Newton to take a knee, staying down for the full count to keep himself from suffering further punishment.

In a light heavyweight elimination match, Eric Harding decisioned David Telesco over 12 to get himself back in the win column, Telesco may have fallen off the map of light heavyweight contenders with this loss. Telesco tried to make a comeback late in the fight but gave up too many rounds early on to win the fight. The scores were 117-111, 115-113 and 115-113, all for Harding.

Butterbean showed journeyman Kenny Craven on Saturday that you can run but you can't hide. Butterbean chased Craven for two rounds before finally catching up to him and pounding him until the ref called a halt to the action.

Nicolai "The Beast" Valuev raised his record to 40 wins, no losses and 30 by KO this past Saturday in Germany. Valuev destroyed challenger Attila Levin in three rounds by way of a TKO victory. Levin was dropped in the third round, Valuev jumped on him and landed hard shots until the ref stopped the fight.

Heavyweight contender Sinan Samil Sam defeated former 1996 Olympian Lawrence Clay-Bey by way of a 12 round unanimous decision. Some ringside observers have said that this fight could be a fight of the year contender. There was non stop action from the start with both men trading hard shots down the stretch. Both men sensing that the fight was up for grabs in the final round decided to let everyting hang out as they threw everything but the kitchen sink. Scores were 116-112, 115-114 and 117-111 for Sam.
