Jose Valdez Decisions Deiner Berrios

By: Sean Crose Premiere Boxing Champions returned to Fox Sports 1 on Saturday with an under the radar card that was broadcast live from the Mechanics Bank Arena in Bakersfield, California. The headliner was a scheduled 10 round lightweight affair featuring the 9-0 Jose Valenzuela as the 26 year old took on the 22-3-1 Deiner Berrios. Valenzuela started off trying to employ his height advantage, as well as his southpaw jab. He also tried working the body. Berrios, however, employed what looked to be a sharp defensive game plan. Berrios went on to try to employ pressure in the second. Valenzuela put his man down in the third, with an accidental strike behind the head. Needless to say, it was not considered a knockdown. Berrios continued to try to counterpunch effectively in the fourth, but Valenzuela was the more active fighter. Neither man threw to great effect in the fifth, but Valenzuela was certainly throwing more than Berrios. Berrios, it seemed was disciplined to a fault. Valenzuela continued to try to put his punches together in the sixth. Berrios became more aggressive in the seventh. His hands were fast, but, as usual, he wasn't throwing enough shots. Berrios landed hard on his man in the eighth, but Valenzuela - after being stunned a moment - was able to regain his composure quickly. By he ninth, it was clear Valenzuela was most likely in the lead, but he had to fight hard constantly to keep the low output Berrios off him, which was naturally draining. With that in mind, Valenzuela and Berrios gave it all they had in the tenth and final round. The judges awarded the win to Valenzuela via a unanimous decision. Earlier in the evening Elon de Jesus fought Rajon Chance to a draw in a controversial featherweight six rounder. The referee took a point from de Jesus in the fourth for hitting after Chance had slipped to the canvas. Extra time was then given to Chance later when he complained he couldn't see after being knocked down in the fifth. The post Jose Valdez Decisions Deiner Berrios appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

Shawn Porter On Terence Crawford Showdown: “I Have What It Takes To Beat Him, Don’t Sleep”

By: Hans Themistode Shawn Porter’s resume speaks for itself. The 33-year-old welterweight contender is highly respected in his weight class and has shared the ring with the best of them. Yet, despite wrapping gold around his waist on two separate occasions and regardless of Porter picking up notable wins against the likes of Danny Garcia, Devon Alexander, and Yordenis Ugas, most expect him to fall woefully short in his next ring appearance. On November 20th, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada, Porter will go toe to toe with WBO 147 pound titlist, Terence Crawford. With the number of world titles Crawford has aggregated throughout his career, he’s regarded by most as the best fighter in the world. Due to that distinction, Porter is viewed by many as having little to no chance at pulling off the upset win. But while Porter has openly accepted that he is the underdog heading in, that doesn't mean he isn't brimming with confidence. “I have what it takes to beat him, don’t sleep on that, believe that. I do.” In spite of the odds, Porter is expected to be the biggest test of Crawford’s career. Since making the move seven pounds north to the welterweight division, Crawford has been both impressive and disappointing. While he’s managed to register stoppage wins in every single one of his 147 pound bouts, the Omaha, Nebraska native has fought less than stellar competition. Most recently, Crawford was last seen in the ring dismantling long-faded former champion, Kell Brook. Although Brook appeared to be in terrific shape, he provided little to no resistance and was subsequently stopped in the fourth round. Regardless of whom the betting public is choosing as the victor on the night, in the end, Porter is firmly of the belief that the combination of himself and Crawford in the ring will lead to nothing short of a terrific showdown. “When I say the fight between me and Terence Crawford is going to be great, it’s gonna be great.” The post Shawn Porter On Terence Crawford Showdown: “I Have What It Takes To Beat Him, Don’t Sleep” appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
