The third week of July was perhaps the busiest boxing weekend. Here we compiled 23 results. That of course might not cover every result globally as there were professional bouts happening in the very remote areas of the globe. So that’s in addition to these 23 fight results.
Here they are, the week’s boxing results Roundup July 13-19:
18 July 2015
Julio César Chávez Jr. UD 10 Marcos Reyes
Chavez (49-2-1, 32 KOs) weighed over the the contracted 168-pound super middleweight limit during the official weigh-in. They let Reyes camp agreed to push the limit up to 170 pounds. Again Chavez weighed more than what is agreed. He came in at 170.8 pounds. Instead of shedding the extra baggage, he paid Reyes (33-3, 24 KOs) a penalty fee. He refused to undergo weigh-in during fight night to determine his weight. His estimated weight on fight night was between 190-200 pounds. Chavez is expected to dispatched early the undersized Reyes. But Chavez still unable to deliver what is expected, although he won on points. The official scores were: 97-92, 98-91 and 96-93.

Cesar Rene Cuenca UD 12 Ik Yang
Cesar Rene Cuenca (48-0, 2 KOs) displayed a master class performance against tough brawler and China’s hope for second world championship Ik Yang. Cuenca was able to lure Yang to a tactical fight from the opening round until Round 11.
He let Yang (19-1, 14 KOs) think of out-boxing him by staying in Yang’s punching range but constantly moving from side to side and engaging from an angle. There’s no way Yang can outbox Cuenca. Cuenca’s punches were like good morning towel that wipes Yang’s every morning. Yang did not make the drastic tactical adjustment until round 11, which was too late as Cuenca was too wide well ahead on the scorecards.
Yang forced Cuenca to a brawl in Round 12, which was really effective. Making it a war was Yang’s right option if he wanted to win the fight but one round was not enough to rattle and topple the master tactician. Even a feather-fisted well-schooled boxer will always give trouble to a wild heavy-handed brawler.
Scott Quigg TKO 2 Kiko Martinez
If Nonito Donaire demolished Anthony Settoul in two rounds, Scott Quigg (31-0-2, 23 KOs) dispatched Spain’s Kiko Martinez (32-6, 24 KOs) in two rounds too. This could set-up a Donaire-Quigg world title clash in the 122-pound division in Dubai, which is what promoter Bob Arum said. But it seemed the UK boxing fans were interested for a Quigg-Frampton showdown. Frampton won a UD against Alejandro Gonzalez Jr.
Carl Frampton UD 12 Alejandro Gonzalez Jr.
Still undefeated and held the IBF junior featherweight title Carl Frampton (21-0, 14 KOs) got up from twin knockdowns he suffered in the opening round and started racking up points from there. Alejandro Gonzalez Jr. (25-2-2, 15 KOs) lost two points for low blows. Official scores were: 116-108, 116-108 and 115-109. With Frampton’s victory, UK boxing fans were excited of a Frampton-Quigg showdown but Quigg’s trainer is looking the other way around.
Joe Gallagher, Quigg’s trainer, is “interested in a Donaire fight” than a title match against Carl Frampton because of his past “experience” in dealing with Frampton’s handlers.
McJoe Arroyo UD Technical Decision 10 Arthur Villanueva
A highly tactical super flyweight fight that appeared unpalatable to boxing fans ringside earning boos from them. The fight has been shortened by a deep cut resulting from accidental clash of heads and the fight went to the scorecards. Villanueva (27-1, 14 KOs) deducted a point in Round 6 for coming head-first. Official scores were: 98-91, 98-91 in favor of Arroyo (17-0, 8 KOs).
