Marcos Maidana Decisions DeMarcus Corley, Tough Fight

By John E. Brignone and Nicolás Samuilov at ringside 

At Luna Park in Buenos Aires, Argentina, WBA interim welterweight champion Marcos Maidana (2.-1, 27KOs) retained his title with a twelve round unanimous decision against a game DeMarcus Corley (37-14, 22KOs). The scores were 117-110, 117-110 and 115-112. The fight was much closer than the official cards.

The first round was slow but at the end they traded punches and nearly exchanged after the bell. Maidana hurt Corley in the second round. Corley held on and tried to throw back hard punches. Corley stayed true to his promise by trading hard punches with the champion. The war continued in the third and the fourth. Corley would not stop trading with Maidana who seemed a bit annoyed that his punches could not put Corley away.

Slowly Maidana began to wear Corley down. He scored a knockdown on Corley in round eight and was trying to finish him off. Madiana was then stunned when he was coming in. Corley got himself out of trouble with that big punch and lasted until to the bell. Corley gave as good as he got in the ninth and tenth rounds.

Near the end of the eleventh, Maidana appeared very tired. Corley was coming on near the end of the eleventh as Maidana was gassed. The final round was a war. Both traded punches until the final bell. Maidana showed heart by trading until the bell as he was clearly very tired.

Guillermo de Jesus Paz snatched the WBC Latin welterweight title from Claudio "The Pumice" Olmedo with a ten round split decision. The scores were 95-94 and 97-93 for Paz and 96-95 for Olmedo.

The fight started slowly but over the rounds Paz began to awaken from the affection of the people, who cheered on every one of his landed punches. The left-hander landed most of the blows, but Olmedo proved stronger in their sporadic exchanges.

Guillermo de Jesús Paz raises his record to 19-20-3, 1 KO, and Claudio "The Pumice" Olmedo falls to 19-3, 18 KOs.

Unbeaten junior welterweight Cesar “El Distinto” Cuenca (39-0, 1 KO) won a unanimous decision over Mauricio Ariel Pereira (15-1-1, 1 KO). The scores were 79-71, 79-71 and 79-72. In the third round the referee Hernan Guajardo docked one point from Pereira, when he fell his mouthpiece for the third time. With a few seconds left, Cuenca lost a point for a low blow.

Martín “El Principito” Coggi (24-4-1, 13 KOs) stopped Juan Federico “El Demonio” Abrego (8-4-1, 2 KOs) in two rounds. Coggi Jr. is the son of former triple world champion Juan Martín “Látigo” Coggi. He won the fight with a spectacular left-uppercut.

At cruiserweight, Daniel “Torbellino” Sanabria (10-1, 7 KOs) won a six round decision over Patricio “El Grande” Pitto (4-2-1, 2 KOs).

Khan beats anyone at 140, his jab is too good.

[QUOTE=wazaa.;9129418][U][B]Kotelnik[/B][/U] Domincano Soy (a well respected poster) said that when Amir fought Kotelnik he used Kotelniks own style plus great in- and out footwork to beat him. Amir unloaded, covered up and went in and out. Apart from the footwork…
