Toledo’s Queen of Boxing: Oshae Jones

Oshae Jones (R) is a winner

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (July 15, 2019) – Toledo has produced and continues to produce elite boxers at a tremendous rate and gifted welterweight Oshae Jones, a much-celebrated amateur champion, clearly reigns as the undisputed Queen of Boxing in the Ohio city located on the western tip of Lake Erie.

The 21-year-old Jones has been a gold medal machine as a three-time Elite National Champion, 2017 Eastern Elite Qualifier, 2016 Youth Open and 2014 National PAL champion. She recently finished runner-up at the Pan American Qualifier in Nicaragua to qualify for the 2019 Pan American Games, starting July 27, in Lima, Peru.

“I supposedly lost by split decision to a fighter from Panama (Atheyna Bylon),” Oshae noted, “but I beat her, 5-0, in the tournament before that, and I’m going to do that at the Pan Ams. This time I want a KO because I didn’t make it clear enough last fight. I’m honored to participate in the Pan Ams but, at the same time, I feel like I worked hard enough to get here, so I’m not that surprised.

“I don’t keep count anymore because I’ve won so many, but my most memorable was winning at The Nationals in 2016, because I won with my brother, Otha (Jones III), and all my teammates from Toledo.”

In addition to Oshae, Toledo has produced numerous professional fighters such as WBC Continental Americas super featherweight champion Albert Bell (15-0), former IBF welterweight world champion Robert Easter, Jr. (21-1-1), seven-time national champion and soon turning pro, Nashay Bradford, 16-0 Chris Jones, 15-0-1 Tyler McCleary. And one of Oshae’s current Team USA members Jared Anderson, the two-time defending elite national heavyweight champion, also hails from Toledo.

“I think Toledo has produced all these champions,” Jones remarked, “because we come from ‘the mud’ and know what hungry feels like.”

Boxing has been a family affair from the very beginning for Jones, who started boxing in 2011 when she was 13, because she was always in competition with her “little brother,” Otha. “We always wanted to be the fastest, strongest or number one at every little thing we did,” she explained. “Both of my brothers are professional boxers, Otha and Roshwan, and my father, Otha Jones, and older brother Roshwan are my coaches.”

Oshae’s life has dramatically changed from training at Soul City Boxing Gym in Toledo to the Olympic and Paralympic Training Center in Colorado Springs, largely due to the opportunities she’s had and taken advantage of to fight overseas and add to her vast arsenal of skills.

Two-time Olympic gold medalist and USA Boxing Alumni Association Hall of Famer, Claressa Shields, along with the likes of Katie TaylorAmanda Serrano and a few others have changed the face of female boxing today. “I feel females before me did good things for women’s boxing,” Jones concluded. “They paved the way, but I’ll finish it off.”

Oshae Jones, who has her sights set on the 2020 Olympics in Japan, is Toledo Strong!

Heavyweight Sonny Conto trades boxing gloves for baseball mitt to throw out first pitch Tues⚾

PHILADELPHIA — The Philadelphia Phillies will have an experienced pitcher on the mound for the first pitch ahead of the team’s contest with the Los Angeles Dodgers on Tuesday.

Heavyweight boxer Sonny Conto (3-0, 3 KOs) is training for his August 10 fight versus Guillermo Del Rio at the Liacouras Center, but at Tuesday’s home game, he’ll trade the boxing gloves for a baseball mitt when he throws out the ceremonial first pitch at Citizens Bank Park.

It won’t be Conto’s first time on a pitching mound. The the 23-year-old was a standout pitcher at West Deptford (NJ) High School and led Rowan College in Gloucester (NJ) County to the 2015 NJCAA Division III World Series. He found similar success as an amateur boxer and turned pro under promotional powerhouse Top Rank earlier this year.

The pitch will kick off the Phillies’ 12th annual Italian Heritage Celebration.

“Pitching from the Phillies’ mound is a dream come true for me,” said Conto. “From 9th and Porter to the College World Series to the major league mound, this is an incredible honor, and to do it on Italian Heritage Night makes it even more special.”

Gabriels, Foster and Morrison Headline DIBELLA ENTERTAINMENT’S BROADWAY BOXING July 17th

San Jose, Costa Rica (July 15, 2019) This Wednesday night, July 17, world ranked super featherweight O’Shaquie “Ice Water” Foster (15-2, 9 KOs), of Houston, TX, and undefeated heavyweight prospect Trey Lippe-Morrison (15-0, 15 KOs), of Tulsa, OK, will be in featured bouts from San Jose, Costa Rica, streamed live internationally on UFC FIGHT PASS®, the world’s leading digital subscription service for combat sports (8:00 p.m. ET/5:00 p.m. PT), as part of a stacked DiBella Entertainment Broadway Boxing event.

The card, held at the Gimnasio Nacional, is headlined by the highly anticipated homecoming of WBA Female Super Welterweight World Champion Hanna “La Amazona Black” Gabriels defending her title against undefeated challenger Abril Vidal (8-0, 3 KOs), of Neuquen, Argentina, scheduled for 10 rounds.

Following his final training session in the summer heat of Houston under the watchful eye of longtime trainer Bobby Benton, the 25-year-old Foster was excited to hit the ring again this Wednesday night against Jesus “Lightning” Bravo (19-1-1, 17 KOs), of Lima, Peru, competing for the WBA Fedecentro Super Featherweight Title in a 10-round contest.

“It’s a bit of a business trip, but I plan to make the most of it. I’ve never been to Costa Rica and I’m really looking forward to it,” said Foster, who returns to action following a third-round stoppage of Fatiou Fassinou on February 23, in Beaumont, TX.

“Ideally, after this fight, I’d like to challenge for a world title against any of the titleholders; Miguel Berchelt, Gervonta Davis, Tevin Farmer or Jamel Herring,” continued Foster, who is world ranked #10 by the World Boxing Council and holder of their Silver Super Featherweight Title. Foster seized the WBC Silver Title with a dominant victory against previously unbeaten Jon Fernandez on September 21, 2018.

Discussing his training camp for this fight, Foster stated, “I’m always in the gym, always learning. For this fight, it was about getting better each day, so when that world title opportunity comes, I’ll be ready. I sparred with Shakur Stevenson for this camp and we gave each other great work. We really pushed each other to become better with every round.”

The 24-year-old Bravo returns to battle following a second-round knockout of undefeated prospect Cesar Diaz on April 27, in Lima, Peru.

Trey Lippe-Morrison, the son of former heavyweight champion Tommy Morrison, has consistently turned heads since his pro debut with his show-stopping knockouts in all of his professional bouts. Fighting on Wednesday night in a scheduled eight-rounder, Lippe-Morrison will seek to keep his knockout streak intact against Pedro Martinez (10-1, 4 KOs), of Ciudad Bolivar, Venezuela. The upset-minded Martinez will look to rebound from his first defeat against Artem Suslenko on March 23, in Russia.

Lippe-Morrison has finished up his training camp with Hall of Fame trainer Freddie Roach in Hollywood, CA, and is excited for the fight and to be traveling outside of the US for the first time.

“It’s an exciting journey for me. Most of my fights have been in Oklahoma, so this is a special opportunity to fight in Costa Rica. This has been my fourth camp with Freddie and I’m becoming a better boxer each time, always learning different things, not just focusing on a specific opponent but becoming a more well-rounded fighter.”

Speaking of his impressive knockout streak, Lippe-Morrison said, “It looks great on paper and I’m glad to finish impressively, but I never go into a fight thinking of when or how I’m going to stop the other fighter. I just do my thing, break down my opponent and if there’s an opportunity to finish inside the distance, I take advantage of it.

“For now, it’s just one fight at a time, keep learning, keep getting better and knowing that at the appropriate time, we’ll make a big move.”

Rounding out the UFC FIGHT PASS streaming event in an eight-round super welterweight clash, Abram Martinez (6-0, 5 KOs), of Las Vegas, NV, clashes with Jorge Mendez (4-4-1, 3 KOs), of Escazu, Costa Rica. The 23-year-old Martinez hits the ring following a first-round knockout of Carlos Cruz on March 17.

Undefeated Cruiserweight Constantin Bejenaru Returns with TKO Victory at Battle at the Boat 122 in Tacoma, WA

Friday 7/12/19 on the un-televised undercard of the SHOWTIME televised “Battle at the Boat 122” at the Emerald Queen Casino in Tacoma, Washington, cruiserweight contender Constantin Bejenaru (14-0, 4 KOs) got back to business after a year and a half away by pounding out a sixth-round TKO (time 2:02) over Mexican veteran Jose Corral.

The southpaw Bejenaru looked sharp and won every minute of the fight with his crisp, fast hands and excellent work to the head and body.

“It felt good to be back,” said Bejenaru, “I’m happy that I’m back in the title hunt and in good shape. After a year and a half, I felt a little rusty for a little bit in the beginning, but I came back pretty quick.”

Bejenaru says he’d have liked to go the full eight-round distance but did enough to know he won’t be needing another tune-up fight before getting back in the mix.

“I am ready for a big fight next. I kept myself in good shape the whole time I was away. I wasn’t sure if I needed one or two tune-up fights, but I felt really good in the ring. Thank you to my opponent for lasting as long as he did and thank you to my team and my new promoter. I’m hoping for a title fight as soon as possible.”

Bejenaru, from Ungheni, in the Republic of Moldova and now living in Brooklyn, is a former 10-time Romanian champion, a Bronze Medalist at the European Amateur Boxing Championships in 2006, a Finalist in the European Union Championships in both 2006 and 2007, and a Gold Medalist at World Combat Games in 2010.

After turning professional in 2012, Bejenaru has gone on to score wide decision victories on ShoBox: The New Generation over previously undefeated Alexey Zubov (10-0, 6 KOs) and Stivens Bujaj (16-0-1, 11 KOs), and in his most recent fight (broadcast on NESN), a decisive points victory over previous world title challenger Thabiso Mchunu (18-3, 11 KOs).

In his seven-year career, he has held both the WBC Continental Americas Cruiserweight Title and the WBC International Cruiserweight Championships.

“We hoped he might have to go all eight rounds to make him breathe and to make him feel the ring,” said trainer Ilia Masishchev, “but once he lands a few punches, he tries to finish. That’s how he is.”

DIBELLA ENTERTAINMENT KICKS OFF BROADWAY BOXING July 17th on UFC Fight Pass

DIBELLA ENTERTAINMENT KICKS OFF BROADWAY BOXING SUMMER SERIES ON UFC FIGHT PASS ON WEDNESDAY, JULY 17, IN SAN JOSE, COSTA RICA, WITH HANNA GABRIELS DEFENDING HER WBA SUPER WELTERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP VERSUS UNBEATEN ABRIL VIDAL

 

TOP CONTENDERS O’SHAQUIE FOSTER AND TREY LIPPE MORRISON TO APPEAR ON THE UNDERCARD

 

 

NEW YORK, NY (07/12/19) – DiBella Entertainment will host a three-part Broadway Boxing summer series, all exclusively live streamed on UFC FIGHT PASS®, the world’s leading digital subscription service for combat sports. The action begins on Wednesday, July 17, with a special international edition from San Jose, Costa Rica, headlined by WBA world champion and local sensation Hanna Gabriels defending her world title, as well as top-rated super featherweight contender O’Shaquie Foster and undefeated heavyweight contender Trey Lippe Morrison, the son of former heavyweight champion Tommy “The Duke” Morrison.

DiBella Entertainment will also present Broadway Boxing events on UFC Fight Pass on August 1, from Monroeville, Pennsylvania, and August 29, from Foxwoods Resort Casino in Mashantucket, Connecticut.

WBA super welterweight world champion Gabriels (19-2-1, 11 KOs), of Alajuela, Costa Rica, will defend her crown for the fourth time in front of her hometown fans at the Gimnasio Nacional against WBA #2 rated contender Abril Argentina Vidal (8-0, 3 KOs) in a 10-round contest.

Gabriels defeated Sarah Dwyer via unanimous decision in defense of her WBA title, in her last fight on January 26. Overall, Gabriels is a three-time, two-division world champion. She previously held the WBO title at welterweight and twice at super welterweight.

In June 2018, Gabriels became the only person to ever knock down unified world champion Claressa Shields, despite losing a competitive decision.

Vidal is a 20-year-old unbeaten Argentinean, who has amassed an impressive resume in only 15 months as a professional. The world title challenge will be Vidal’s fourth fight in a busy 2019 that has seen her win the Argentinean and South American championships in separate bouts. In her last fight on June 8, Vidal earned an impressive unanimous decision victory against the experienced, three-time world title challenger Yamila Reynoso.

“Hanna Gabriels is one of the top pound-for-pound talents in the women’s boxing game and a star in Costa Rica,” said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. “I am thrilled to bring her title defense to her rabid fans while exposing this great champion to the worldwide subscriber base of UFC Fight Pass.”

WBC #9 rated Foster (15-2, 9 KOs), of Houston, TX, will vie for the vacant WBA Fedecentro title in the 10-round co-feature against Lima, Peru’s Jesus Bravo (19-1-1, 17 KOs).

Foster is coming off of a huge 2018 that saw him explode into the world ratings. In September 2018, Foster handed highly touted Spaniard Jon Fernandez his first loss in a sensational nationally televised performance to capture the WBC Silver super featherweight title. Before that, in April, Foster won an impressive unanimous decision against contender Frank De Alba. All told, Foster is riding a five-fight win streak versus competition with a combined record of 71-16-6. Before his 2012 pro debut, Foster was also a highly accomplished amateur, with a 94-12 record, winning numerous Ringside National Championships, Houston Golden Gloves tournaments and PAL National tournaments, as well as participating in the 2012 Olympic Trials.

The 24-year-old heavy-hitting Bravo has knockout wins against previously unbeaten prospects Bryan Mercado and Cesar Diaz. His only loss came last year via controversial majority decision against Rafael Hernandez, challenging for the WBA Fedebol featherweight belt.

Heavyweight knockout artist Trey Lippe Morrison (15-0, 15 KOs), of Tulsa, OK, will end a near 13-month ring absence, due to injury, taking on Pedro Rodriguez (10-1, 4 KOs), of Venezuela. Trey Lippe will be fighting outside of the United States for the first time as a pro in his sixteenth pro bout, something it took his legendary father 50 fights to do.

Rodriguez’ lone defeat came in March on points to former Russian National champion Artem Suslenkov.

The August 1 event will feature middleweight contenders Eric Walker and Ievgen Khytrov, as well as welterweight contender Ivan Golub. The August 29 event will feature a title defense by WBA super middleweight women’s world champion Alicia Napoleon, as well as the return of top contender Toka Kahn-Clary. Full details on both cards will be announced shortly.

“The Broadway Boxing summer series will be a parade of world champions, present and future, in some of the biggest fights of their careers,” said DiBella. “This commitment to quality is what has always set Broadway Boxing apart as a premier boxing series in the USA and, as of July 17, internationally as well.”

TERRI HARPER IS A STAR IN THE MAKING – STEFY BULL

STEFY BULL: “TERRI HARPER COULD BECOME ONE OF BOXING’S BIG PLAYERS”

For immediate release

RESPECTED promoter and trainer Stefy Bull believes unbeaten Terri Harper is a star in the making.

Harper, 22, vies to become Britain’s youngest female world champion when she locks horns with South Africa’s Nozipho Bell for the vacant IBO super-featherweight crown at the Magna Centre in Rotherham next Friday night (July 19).

Given that the Denaby Main stylist only turned professional in November 2017, her rise to world title class has been little short of meteoric.

And Stefy feels she is equipped with all the attributes to become one of the sweet science’s shining lights.

“I strongly believe I’ve discovered someone very unique, someone very exciting and someone who could arguably be a big player, not just in women’s boxing, but in boxing overall,” Stefy said.

“I’ve always been very vocal about Terri’s talent and I think now everybody is seeing what she is about.

“She’s only 22 and she’s full of potential. Imagine what she’s going to be like when she’s 24 or 25 years of age.

“I think Terri could become Yorkshire’s biggest attraction. Take Josh Warrington away and she’s rivalling anyone in terms of popularity because she’s getting a lot of publicity and she’s personally sold over £20,000 of tickets for this fight.

“It’s even more crazy when you consider that she isn’t from a big town or city. She’s from a little mining village just outside of Doncaster.

“She’s already surpassed anyone I’ve worked with and I can’t think of anyone else who was driving this level of interest on small hall shows at her age and after only seven fights.”

Despite his confidence in Harper’s ability, Stefy is keen to stress that Nozipho Bell isn’t an opponent that he and co-trainer Ray Doyle are taking lightly.

The 29-year-old from Nelson Mandela Bay, Port Elizabeth has already operated in world class having won an WBF crown in her last fight and previously pushed WBO titlist Ewa Brodnicka to the wire.

“She (Bell) went all the way to Poland to fight Brodnicka and from what I’ve read online, it was a very close and controversial decision,” Stefy said.

“If she can mix it like that with a genuine unbeaten world champion, then she can obviously fight and winning is not a foregone conclusion for Terri.

“This will tell us exactly where Terri is at. We believe Terri is already at world level and she’ll prove that.

“In the last few fights she’s beaten Nina Bradley who was the Commonwealth champion and undefeated and on only ten days notice she stopped Lopez, who was a southpaw and a former IBF and WBA world champion. This is the next step in Terri’s rise in the sport.”

Stefy Bull Promotions in association with Ryan Rhodes’s 26RR Promotions presents an evening of professional boxing entitled ‘The World Awaits’ on Friday 19 July at the Magna Centre, Rotherham.

As well Harper v Bell, Doncaster’s two-time world title challenger Gavin McDonnell returns to action, Lee Appleyard boxes in his hometown for the first time, Jason Cunningham keeps busy ahead of a potential British super-bantamweight title shot, and unbeaten Sheffield prospect Callum ‘Hitman’ Hancock continues his education.

Also in action are debutants Callum Beardow and Cam Shaw, Sheffield’s Jamaican-born puncher Nicolie Campbell and fast-rising super-lightweight Levi Kinsiona.

FEIGENBUTZ CONTINUES ROAD TO THE TOP AGAINST NUNEZ ON AUGUST 17

FEIGENBUTZ CONTINUES ROAD TO THE TOP AGAINST NUNEZ ON AUGUST 17 On August 17, German knockout specialist Vincent Feigenbutz (30-2, 27 KOs) will take the next step on his ‘Road to the Top’ against unbeaten Spaniard Cesar Nunez (16-0-1, 8 KOs) at the Friedrich-Ebert-Halle in Ludwigshafen, Germany.

“Vincent Feigenbutz is a local hero in Ludwigshafen and over the last few years he has established himself as one of Europe’s most dangerous boxers,” said Feigenbutz’s promoter Nisse Sauerland. “The Friedrich-Ebert-Halle is a venue we love coming to and I know the arena will be electric once again on August 17!”

“Cesar Nunez is undefeated so far, but I’ll change that and will do my best to end the fight early. Ludwigshafen can look forward to a great boxing night,” said Feigenbutz. “Now it’s about preparing myself the best way I can together with my team. It’s going to be a hard job, but I’m really looking forward to getting back in the ring on August 17!”

Feigenbutz was last in action at the Ufgauhalle in Karlsruhe headlining against the brave Przemyslaw Opalach on January 26, where he ended the fight with a vicious assault in the fifth-round and was declared winner by TKO.

Following yet another impressive performance and his twenty-seventh stoppage victory, Feigenbutz is moving ever closer on his quest for a World title, currently sitting #3 with the IBF, #7 with the WBO and #5 with the WBA.

“We are excited for Vincent to continue his ‘Road to the Top’ and become a World Champion once again,” said Sauerland. “He’s one of the heaviest hitters in the super middleweight division and we look forward to him taking over the World stage in spectacular fashion.”

Feigenbutz’s opponent is the aggressive come-forward Cesar Nunez who hails from Pamplona, Spain. “On paper, Vincent is an excellent and experienced boxer and maybe my strongest opponent so far,” said Nunez. “However, I do not really care about fight records. I want to box the best, so I was immediately on fire for this one. I can’t wait to give the fans in Germany a great show!”

HRGOVIĆ FACES HEREDIA ON AUGUST 24 IN MEXICO

HRGOVIĆ FACES HEREDIA ON AUGUST 24 IN MEXICO Filip Hrgović (8-0, 6 KOs) will face Mario Heredia (16-6-1, 13 KOs) at the Centro de Usos Múltiples in Hermosillo, Mexico, on Saturday August 24, live on DAZN in the US, Sky Sports in the UK and RTL in Croatia.

The unbeaten heavyweight sensation makes a quick return to the ring following his explosive first round KO win in Maryland in May over Greg Corbin.

The Croatian star will be aiming for KO number seven in Mexico and defends his WBC International title against an in-form Mexican in the shape of Heredia who enters the bout on the back of a split-decision win over former World title challenger Samuel Peter in April.

“I’m looking forward to fighting Mario Heredia in Mexico,” said Hrgović. “I’m expecting a good fight and I will train hard for him like I do for every opponent.

“Mexico is not a new place for me if you look at my amateur career. I have already fought twice in Mexico in the World Series of Boxing back in 2013 and 2014, and both fights I won, so I’m really looking forward to fighting there again.

“I was very satisfied with how my first fight for DAZN in American went. It couldn’t have gone better for me really. I introduced myself in a special way.

“Gregory Corbin was a tough fighter and nobody expected a KO in the first-round. I showed the American audience what they can expect in my upcoming fights. I was only in the ring 60 seconds last time. We will see how much time I spend in the ring this time. I don’t want to underestimate anybody.

“I had three weeks off after my last fight and it was good to rest and recharge my batteries. I have already started my camp in Zagreb and will continue in Miami. I train hard in Zagreb with Yousef Hassan and Igor Cordas, while Pedro Diaz is waiting for me in Miami with my final tactics.

“I’m excited to fight in front of the Mexican fans. I know they are huge boxing fanatics and I’m sure they will appreciate my style, no doubt about that.”

“Following his devastating KO win over Gregory Corbin, we’re excited to see Filip back in the ring,” said promoter Nisse Sauerland. “We’ve said for a long time that he is the future of the heavyweight division and people are now starting to take notice. His World title charge continues on August 24 in Mexico, where fight fans can expect another show stealing performance.”

Mexican World Champion Juan Francisco Estrada (39-3 26 KOs) tops the bill at the Centro de Usos Múltiples defending his WBC and Ring Magazine Super-Flyweight titles against American Dewayne Beamon (16-1-1 11 KOs).

Uzbek Olympic silver medal man Shakhram Giyasov (8-0 6 KOs) looks to strengthen his claims for big fights at Super-Lightweight in his ninth pro outing, and young American-Mexican talents Alexis Espino (3-0 2 KOs) and Diego Pacheco (4-0 3 KOs) continue their educations in the paid ranks, with more fights to be added.
