    Van Heerden (23-1-1, 12 KOs), fighting out of Santa Monica, California by way of South Africa, used his 3-inch height advantage against C

    laggett (23-3-1, 16 KOs), the Canadian champion from Calgary, Alberta.

     

     

    Neither fighter was hurt during the fight, in which there were continual back-and-forth exchanges of stinging combinations. Claggett battled to apply pressure in order to fight on the inside, while Van Heerden fought effectively from the outside.

     

     

    The two evenly-matched welt

    rweights patiently waited for the official announcement: 95-95 and 97-93 twice for Van Heerden.

     

     

    "I knew I won this fight, 120-percent, but I knew it was close," Van Heerden commented. "We're both winners tonight because of

    we entertained the crowd. Me and Claggett entertained the crowd.....we delivered.

     

     

    "I've been through so much and The Lo

    rd helped me get this win. I look forward to a rematch, but I want to move forward

     

     

    Undefeated California junior middleweight Neeco "The Rooster" Macias (12-0, 6 KOs) had a lot to crow about in the 8-round co-feature against Limberth "El Gallito" Ponce, Jr. (10-3, 8 KOs).

     

     

    Macias thoroughly dominated the action, firing non-stop shots from every conceivable angle. His unrelenting pressure enabled Macias, whose come-forward appr

    he was going to be the to

    ughest ghter I've fought," Macias said

     

    He added:

    "I give Ponce much respect. We wanted to give fans a good show.

     

     

    Baltimore welterweight Malik "Iceman" Hawkins (7-0, 6 KOs) gave Errol "Spyda" Sidney (6-2-2, 2 KOs) a beating, fully displaying his arsenal of punches, hurting his gutsy opponent on several occasions.

     

     

    Hawkins' aggressive style early in the fight broke-down Sidney, who was nearly finished at the end of the fourth and fifth rounds.

    Hawkins trapped Sidney a neutral corner at the start of the sixth round and a powerful uppercut sent Sidney down to a knee.

     

     

    Sidney beat referee Jay Nady's count but the veteran official had seen enough and he halted the bout 1:02 into the sixth 

     

    We'rback," Hawkins proclaimed after the bout. I'd give myself an 8 ½ this fight.

     

     

    Las Vegas' promising prospect Randy Moreno (2-0, 1 KO) outclassed Oregon junior lightweight Derek Barthemay (0-3) from the opening bell for a 4-round unanimous decision.

     

     

    Flashy Las Vegas welterweight prospect Jeremy "J-Flash" Nichols (3-0, 2 KOs) constantly pounded the body of his tough Mexican opponent, Jason "Gibbor" Gavino (3-2, 2 KOs), for a 4-round shutout victory,

     

    Las Vegas' Sal Lopez (2-0) dropped a game Matt "The KO Kid" Murphy (0-2), a junior lightweight from St. Louis, in the opening round on his way to an impressive one-sided win by way of a unanimous 4-round decision.

    SELBY V NORMAN BRITISH TITLE CONFIRMED;

    DIXON V GALLAGHER ADDED TO WORLD TITLE BILL

    Wales’ former Olympian and AIBA World Silver Medalist 

    Andrew Selby will bid to become a British champion in only his fifth professional bout, a Welsh record, on Saturday May 14 at Cardiff’s brand new Ice Arena Wales, when he takes on Leicestershire’s former English champion Louis Norman for the vacant British flyweight title.

    This exciting title bout is part of a huge undercard to Lee Haskins’ first defence of his IBF World bantamweight title against Mexico’s Ivan Morales live on Channel 5.

    Also featuring on the stacked Cyclone Promotions bill in Cardiff is Mountain Ash’sTony Dixon, who bids for his first professional title against Belfast’s 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medalist Paddy Gallagher, in a genuine 50/50 contest for the vacant BBBofC Celtic welterweight championship.

    Cyclone Promotions founder and former world featherweight champion Barry McGuigan is excited by both of these domestic title fights on this huge night of boxing in the Welsh capital.

    May 14 at the Ice Arena Wales in Cardiff is going to be a great night of world championship boxing,” said Barry.

    The undercard for Haskins v Morales is stacked full of some of British and Irish boxing’s most exciting prospects.

    Andrew Selby vs Louis Norman is a terrific contest for the vacant British flyweight title.

    This is Andrew Selby’s chance to shine on the big stage in front of his home fans and I believe he will do just that, he’s a super talent who has a very bright future in the sport. Tony Dixon against Paddy Gallagher for the vacant Celtic welterweight title is a real 50/50 contest that has the potential to be the fight of the night. It’s going to be a fantastic evening for the fans in the arena and the viewers at home on Spike and Channel 5.”  

    Undefeated Andrew Selby is on a mission to become Wales’ next world champion. 

    The gifted twenty-eight year old is determined to follow in the footsteps of his famous older brother Lee, the IBF world featherweight champion.

    On May 14 at the Ice Arena Wales the younger Selby challenges for the vacant British flyweight title against Leicestershire’s Louis Norman, 11 – 1 – 1, in only his fifth professional contest.

    Victory for the man from Barry, Wales, would give Selby the Welsh record for the fewest bouts taken to win a British title.

    I’m delighted to be boxing for the British title on May 14 in Cardiff,” said Selby. “It’s going to be a big night for Welsh boxing and I can’t wait. I’m in against a good opponent in Louis Norman but I believe I have that bit extra. I want to win the British title in style and ultimately I want to be a world champion. This is the start of my championship boxing journey.”

    In another intriguing title bout on the undercard of Haskins v Morales, Mountain Ash’s undefeated Tony Dixon faces off against Belfast’s Paddy Gallagher for the vacant Celtic welterweight belt.

    The teak tough twenty-three year old Dixon, 7 – 0, takes a step up in class against 2010 Commonwealth Games gold medalist Gallagher, 9 – 2, in an exciting ten-round contest between two all-action fighters.

    The undercard for Haskins v Morales will be screened live and exclusively on Spike (Freeview, BT TV, Talk Talk channel 31; FREESAT channel 141; Sky channel 160) on May 14. Haskins v Morales, IBF world bantamweight title fight, will be screened live and exclusively on Channel 5.

    FURY VS. KLITSCHKO 2 CONFIRMED FOR MANCHESTER ARENA

     

    TYSON FURY’S AWAITED REMATCH WITH UKRAINIAN BOXING LEGEND WLADIMIR KLITSCHKO IS CONFIRMED. IT WILL BE FEATURED AT  AT THE MANCHESTER ARENA ON SATURDAY 9TH JULY. THIS COMPLEX FIGHT WILL BE BROADCAST EXCLUSIVELY LIVE ON BOXNATION.

    The iconic venue has witnessed some colossal showdowns over the years including Mancunian legend Ricky Hatton’s unforgettable world title victory over Kostya Tszyu; Welsh legend Joe Calzaghe treated fight fans to a boxing master-class against Jeff Lacy; countless Naseem Hamed and Nigel Benn classics and now Fury will look to grace the famous arena with another barn-burner.

    The bitter grudge match will feature Fury, the linear, WBA Super, WBO, IBO and Ring Magazine World Heavywei Champion make the first defence of the titles against the man he took them from in an explosive blockbuster showdown.

    Undefeated Fury shocked the sporting world last November when he sensationally dethroned long-reigning heavyweight icon Klitschko in one of boxing’s biggest ever upsets in recent years at the Esprit Arena in Dusseldorf, Germany.

    Klitschko is gunning for revenge after suffering his first defeat in over 11 years at the hands of the Mancunian. The 40-year-old was quick to take up the contractual option for a rematch against Fury; ending speculation that he would decide to retire after his 11 year, 22-fight unbeaten streak was spectacularly ended.

    ‘Dr Steelhammer’ (64-4 54 KOs) is determined to recapture his belts from Fury and take his place back at the top of the world heavyweight scene.

    Fury said: “I’m thrilled to get this fight on July 9th at the Manchester Arena. I’m the best heavyweight in the world and the rest are imposters to my titles. I am coming for all of them once I’ve dealt with Klitschko a second time.”

    He added: “The only man that could beat Klitschko is me. What I’ve got can’t be taught; you’ve either got it or you haven’t. How you beat robots is to do unorthodox things. I’m expecting a totally different fight; he’s going to have to come over here and fight this time. It’s going to be a slugfest.”

    The Channel Of Champions, BoxNation, will televise Fury v Klitschko 2 exclusively live on Sky 437/HD 490, Virgin 546, TalkTalk 415 and Freeview 255. Subscribe at www.boxnation.com or watch online at watch.boxnation.com and via iPhone, iPad or Android and Amazon devices. ~
