Boxing Brief: Heavyweights in weekend action

Rising star Boytsov extends unbeaten streak

MAGDEBURG, GERMANY – Heavyweight Denis Boytsov stopped fellow prospect Ondrej Pala in five rounds Saturday to remain unbeaten.

The 20 year-old Boytsov, 16-0 (15 KOs), Russia, 215, led the 21 year-old Pala, 11-2 (8 KOs), Czech Republic, 237, on all cards according to Box Rec when the bout was stopped due to cuts.

Former titleholder McCall continues comeback

LOUISVILLE – Former heavyweight titlist Oliver McCall, 48-8, 2 NC (35 KOs), Valley Station, Ky. 249, stopped journeyman Darroll Wilson, 27-9-2 (21 KOs), Pleasantville, N.J., 220, in four rounds of a scheduled 10 Saturday.

McCall, 41, is now 20-1 (with 2 NCs) in his last 23 bouts. While Wilson, 40, is nowhere the top 10 of the heavyweights, McCall figures to use this bout as a springboard into a title match with new belt-holder Oleg Maskaev.

In 1996 McCall, known as the “Atomic Bull,” scored a one-round knockout over the "Big O" in Maskaev’s seventh bout.

Alright...I'm confused. WHO was leading on the cards??? Was it Boytsov, or Pala??? (I've now read both...???)

* J.E- This is cool that you put another little read on here, but the top-25 has now disappeared from the main page. WE CAN'T HAVE THIS J.E.

(I see there is at least a direct link to it, but still...)

According to Boxing Rec is was Boytsov. I can't find a single report in German media.

Yes...I have verified from another source that Boytsov was up 3-2 or 3-1 on all three cards at the time of the stoppage. What's this site coming to? First Ondrizek gives us a bad piece of info, and then the top-25 falls off the face of the earth!

(LOL)

Okay...It looks like we got it all straightened out. Apparently the fight was very close after 4 rounds, but I think some may be being a bit too hard on Boytsov, after reading a few comments. Not only is the kid 20 yrs.old, but he was fighting a good young fighter. So the fight was close, and he didn't look like a 'world-beater' after 4 rounds. Well, I would like to see the fight, but I could say the same thing about a few hvy's (early in their careers) that are currently in the H.O.F, or will soon be.

* I would suggest Boytsov fight at least one more time this year, and to not take a drastic step up or down in competition.

BTW- When in proper condition mentally and physically, McCall may just be the worlds best over-40 hvy. But...He's just the world's best over-40 hvy.

How many over-40 guys are even out there? 10???? Take it from me -- guys who are over 40 should be doing something other than fighting.
