VILLANUEVA HANDS NERY HIS SECOND CAREER KNOCKDOWN BUT KING ARTHUR LOSES ON A 6TH ROUND TKO

By Maloney L. Samaco

Villanueva drops Nery.

Luis “Panterita” Nery (25-0, 19 KOs) came out victorious when he stopped "King" Arthur Villanueva (31-3, 15 KOs) in six rounds at the Gasmart Stadium in Tijuana, Mexico. The fight was stopped by the referee at 1:19 if the sixth canto. The ALA Boxing Gym stalwart knocked Nery down late in the fourth round which shocked the hometown hero. But the champion was able to recover clobbered Villanueva in the fifth stage. The Mexican continued the attack in the sixth round until the referee stopped the contest.

PhilBoxing writer Ed de la Vega, DDS described the fight: "Admittedly, Nery landed at least a couple of good shots on Villanueva early in round 6 and he backed up Villanueva to a corner. But, Villanueva was nowhere near being helpless and more importantly was not defenseless. However, that one single moment gave the referee the opportunity to take the matter in his own hands, and in our opinion, he stopped the fight way too early to assure that Nery wins the fight."

* * *

Villanueva delivered Nery his second professional knockdown. On December 2016, Nery was knocked down for the first time in his pro career in the opening stanza of a bout against Filipino Raymond Tabugon. Despite the knockdown, the fight was dominated by Nery who pounded Tabugon until the referee stopped it in the fourth round. He has also won over three other Filipino opponents Richie Mepranum 2nd-round TKO, John Mark Apolinario by 2nd-round TKO, and Jether Oliva by 4th-round TKO.

* * *

On October 31, the WBC made its final ruling on Nery's positive drug test. The sanctioning body concluded that the positive result was due to contaminated beef food. Consequently, the result of Nery's WBC bantamweight title fight win over Shinsuke Yamanaka last August 15 would not be overturned but the WBC ordered a rematch. That is why the Nery-Villanueva tussle became a non-title bout. Yamanaka though was re-installed by The Ring as their bantamweight champion.

Jeff Horn's promoter, Dean Lonergan has expressed his intention to offer Conor McGregor to fight the WBO welterweight champion. Horn's trainer, Glenn Rushton, believes the Australian world titlist could win against McGregor more convincingly than what Mayweather accomplished last August. “We would certainly consider doing that fight and show the world that we can do a better job than Mayweather," Rushton said. "There’s no way Jeff is going to stand there and be pummelled for the first two or three rounds."

* * *

But there is no chance for that fight to happen according to UFC President Dana White. When asked about the possibility of making a McGregor vs. Horn boxing match he said "slim to none of that fight ever happening." Everyone wants to fight Conor and Conor wants to fight in the UFC, he added. White said to The Daily Telegraph: “We’ve always got it done with Conor... Always taken him to the next level when we felt it was time. When he’s delivered so have we. He should be done with boxing."

WBC world heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder (39-0, 38 KOs) demolished former world champion Bermane Stiverne (25-3-1, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Wilder knocked Stiverne down three times in round one. In just under three minutes at the Barclays Center, actually two minutes and 59 seconds, for a first-round technical knockout. Stiverne is the only fighter to clash with Wilder to the distance in their first fight in 2015.

* * *

Stiverne was the WBC mandatory challenger and became a late replacement in the title fight after the original foe Luis Ortiz failed a pre-fight drug test. Ortiz is the second big name heavyweight challenger scheduled to fight Wilder but was cancelled after failing a pre-fight drug test after former heavyweight title contender Alexander Povetkin was positive of illegal drug shortly before Wilder was scheduled to face him to defend his belt in May 2016.

Muhammad Ali, then named Cassius Clay was first brought to boxing by Louisville police officer and boxing coach Joe E. Martin, who talked to then 12-year-old kid angry over a thief who took his bicycle. He told the officer he was going to "whup" the thief. The officer challenged Clay to learn how to box. At first, Clay did not follow Martin's advise, but after seeing a local television boxing program called Tomorrow's Champions, Clay suddenly became interested in the sport of fighting.

* * *

During the last four years of Clay's amateur career he was trained by boxing cutman Chuck Bodak. Clay made his amateur boxing debut in 1954 against Ronnie O'Keefe. He won by split decision. He went on to succeed in his amateur career, winning six Kentucky Golden Gloves titles, two national Golden Gloves titles, an Amateur Athletic Union national title, and the light heavyweight gold medal at the 1960 Summer Olympics in Rome. Clay's amateur record was 100 wins with five losses.
