Selcuk Aydin Forces DeMarcus Corley To Quit in Four

By Alexey Sukachev

Selcuk Aydin, the best active Turkish fighter in the present, continued his light welterweight crusade with a TKO win over DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley. The American veteran offered tough resistance to Aydin in the opening round but slowly succumbed to the power and spirit of Aydin. Corley retired on his stool after the fourth round.

Aydin (now 26-2, 19 KOs), 30, came back to 140 lbs after back-to-back losses to Robert Guerrero and Jesus Soto-Karass at the welterweight limit. At a new weight class, Aydin looked fresh and agile, fully concentrated on dealing the maximum damage. Corley tried to stick in with is jab but Aydin just walked through it with swings and hooks. Corley fought on even terms with the Turk in the opening round, but with each past stanza the former champion's actions became less and less productive. Aydin overwhelmed Corley with his activity in rounds three and four, rocked him several time and took little fire in return. Seeing his inability to ignite the fire, Corley chose to surrender on his stool during the break between rounds four and five.

The American upset artist falls down to 39-21-1, with 23 KOs. WBC #4 and IBF #10 Aydin acquired a bogus WBC Mediterranean light welterweight title in process.

----------------------

Turkish middleweight Alptug Oener (5-0, 1 KO) showed shills and poise but failed to finish off very little-skilled Georgian Renat Samedov (6-8-1, 1 KO), who lost six times inside the distance. Oener dominated the contest en route to a four-round unanimous decision. There were no knocdow, and Samedov lost all of the rounds. Scores were 40-36 across the boards.

----------------------

Former cruiserweight world title challenger Enad Licina (25-4, 14 KOs) continued his comeback road from his 2012 EBU loss to Alexander Alekseev with a stoppage win over Levan Jomardashvili (31-12, 21 KOs) of Georgia. Jomardashvili was stopped in three rounds.

Round one was quite even, with the Georgian fighting in spurts, trying to break the Serbian fighter down with multipunch combinations at the ropes. His efforts were futile as most of the punches connected to the shoulders and block of IBF #4 Licina. In the second stanza, the Georgian boxer turned the contest into a pure buffoonery, raising his hands, smiling much, jogging around the ring. He paid the price during the last  minute of the round, after one of Licina's combos sent him down. He was also deducted a point right after that for unsportsmanlike conduct. Jomardashvili continued clowning in the third round, and Licina kept beating him. After two more easy knockdowns after body-to-head combinations of Licina, Jomardashvili was considered unable (or it's better to say, unwilling) to continue at 2:34 of the third round.

----------------------

Alexander Kahl, the 36-year old heavyweight trialhorse with a heavily padded record, continued his downslide losing within a round for the fourth time in a row. It took local prospect Agit Kabayel (7-0, 5 KOs) just 81 seconds to get the job done, while scoring two knockdowns in process. Kahl is now 18-11-1, 16 KOs with a TKO 1 loss to 1-10-2 fighter. The 21-year old Turk needs a step up in class.

Hate to ressurect a thread but after just watching the fight. Corley mustve been paid to lose IMO. Nothing suggested that it would turn out that way from how it was progressing.

[QUOTE=TaurusJ27;13788696]Didn't see where Corley got hurt that made him quit.[/QUOTE] I didn't either. Aydin had a significantly better 4th than he'd had in the prior rounds, but it still wasn't turning into a beating or anything. I'd say either Corley…

Aydin is just simply not good. He has decent power when he actually decides to throw more then one punch every 2 minutes.

Tune up fight for Matthysse? Might be fun since both have good power. I think Lucas would clown him, but it's a fairly sense-making fight.

Didn't see where Corley got hurt that made him quit.
