Sunday odds and ends

Sunday Odds and Ends

I watched the Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez vs. Sergiy Dzinziruk fight last night and came away truly impressed with Martinez’s fighting ability and the maturity he showed in the ring.  Not only had he truly trained for the bout, but his mental fortitude was also apparent as he kept to his game, never lost focus and put on the kind of boxing show that keeps fans out of their seats in concert with the fighters, all without the kind of self-aggrandizing nonsense that so often, of late, gets in the way of a good bout.  Given his peak physical condition and the kind of training regimen he keeps to, we shall likely have Martinez, 36, around for some time to come.  The fight was truly boxing at its best with a huge shout out to Dzinziruk for his considerable efforts in the fight.

Women’s boxing in Japan

The triple-header WBC title fights to have been held at Tokyo’s Korakuen Hall have been put on hold due to the devastating earthquake the hit North-Eastern Japan on Friday.  Apparently all six of the boxers had just completed their official weigh-ins when the earthquake hit.  Thankfully, none of the participants were injured.  The OBPF light flyweight bout was also canceled.

Ana Julaton – the next bout?

Ana Julaton

Close on the heels of her successful WBO Super Bantamweight defense, The Philippines Star is reporting that Ana “The Hurricane” Julaton “is yearning for a rematch with Lisa “Bad News” Brown in the hope of avenging one of the most heartrending losses in her boxing career.”  This fight, however, will need to occur after her next bout deemed a title defense by a “mandatory challenger,” although neither Julaton nor her team are talking on what fighter that may be or where and when the fight will occur.

Julaton, a popular boxer in both her native California is considering having her next bout on Philippine soil.  Time will tell.  The link to the story is here.

Fight Reminder: Sonya “The Scholar” Lamonakis

Fight Reminder:  Sonya “The Scholar” Lamonakis!

Sonya "The Scholar" Lamonakis during a recent interview @ Gleason's Gym

Sonya “The Scholar” Lamonakis (3-0, 1-KO), four-time Golden Gloves champion and WIBA #1 ranked Heavyweight contender will be in an exciting fight with southpaw Tanzee Daniels (4-0, 1-KO) tonight at Foxwoods on the undercard of the Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez vs. Sergiy Dzinziruk bout to be broadcast on HBO.

As quoted in the presser for the Martinez-Dzinziruk fight, promoter Lou DiBella said, “If you like women’s boxing, this is going to be a war.”

Girlboxing has watched Sonya workout over the last weeks and has been inspired by Sonya’s focus as she has pushed herself to reach peak conditioning ahead of her battle.  If Tanzee has worked half as hard, this will prove to be an epic fight.

For further information on tickets, they can be purchased online here or by calling the MGM Grand at Foxwoods at 1-866-646-0609, or in person at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods box office.  You can also contact Gleason’s Gym at (718) 797-2872 for the latest update.

Stepping up to fight against domestic violence plus a Daily News Golden Gloves Week Five Reminder

Stepping up to fight against domestic violence plus a Daily News Golden Gloves Week Five Reminder

 

Sergio "Maravilla" Martinez takes on the challenge of ending domestic violence against women

For the uninitiated, the sport of boxing has become associated with violence of all kinds including domestic violence against women.  Boxers know that contrary to its reputation, the discipline and work ethic associated with the sport often curtails the kind of personal explosive outbursts of violence that have come to be associated with it.

That’s not to say that all boxers are necessarily non-violent, but it does mean that boxers are for the most part practitioners of the art of the sweet violence and abhor violence outside of the ring.  The exceptions are heartbreaking and the suicide of Venezuelan boxer Edwin Valero last April after confessing to murdering his wife is no exception.

Enter Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez to take on the cause of domestic violence against women.  Martinez (46-2-2, 25 KO) who is fighting @ Foxwoods on March 12th in his much anticipated HBO main event fight against Sergei Dzinziruk (37-0, 23 KO) used the opportunity of his recent press conference to talk again about the cause he took up in the wake of the Valero suicide saying, “violence against women is simply unacceptable.”  Bleacher Report has a piece about his efforts here.
