Boxing Brief: Heavyweights in Saturday action

By JE Grant

FORT SMITH, Ark. – J.D. Chapman, Mansfield, Ark., stopped trial-horse Ray Lunsford Saturday in two rounds. He moved his record to 25-0 (22 KOs). Chapman is trained by Jeff Mayweather.

HARTFORD, Conn. -- Jason Estrada, 7-0, 1NC (1KO), Providence, R.I., 251, decisioned Maurice Wheeler over eight rounds Saturday night. He is scheduled to take on fellow unbeaten Travis Walker in November.

HATTERSHEIM, GERMANY -- Once-beaten Oleg Platov, Ukraine, 225, stopped oft-beaten Tamas Borbely to run his record to 22-1 (19 KOs) Saturday night. Platov’s record is replete with opponents with losing records making it difficult to assess the 23 year-old fighter’s relative ability.

WETZLAR, GERMANY – Budding superstar and former Olympic gold medal winner Alexander Povetkin, 9-0 (7 KOs), Russia, 220, stopped shopworn, but experienced Ed Mahone in five rounds of a scheduled eight Saturday. Mahone once possessed a record of 21-0-1, but has now slipped to 23-8-2 (23 KOs) including four losses in a row.
