2007- Mikkel Kessler W 12 Librado Andrade, Copenhagen, Denmark. Retains WBA/WBC Super Middleweight Title.

Born On This day

1970- Buster Mathis Jr., born March 24, 1970 in Grand Rapids, MI, was an American boxer in the heavyweight division.
The son of Buster Mathis, a heavyweight boxer from the 60s renowned for his overweight physique, Mathis Jr was also a heavy man (around 300 lbs at school) and took up boxing to lose weight.
Mathis Jr. turned pro in 1991 and quickly put together 12 wins. A busy, crowding fighter, Mathis was small for a heavyweight at around 220 lbs but skilled enough to beat fairly respected Clubfighters like Levi Billups, Justin Fortune and Mike Dixon very early in his career. He was considered a weak puncher (3 KO's in those 12 fights) but his opposition was above average.
In 1993 he challenged Mike 'The Bounty' Hunter (23-3) for his USBA heavyweight belt. Hunter, one of the most awkward and erratic fighters in the world, won a close decision over Mathis. The loss however was soon voided after Hunter later tested positive for cocaine.
In 1994 Mathis again contested the USBA belt (stripped from Hunter), this time winning an impressive 12 round decision over washed-up ex-Olympic champion Tyrell Biggs (27-7).
In August of that year Mathis was brought in as the comeback opponent for ex-undisputed champion Riddick Bowe. After a good effort bobbing and weaving out the way of the towering Bowe's best shots (and marking up Bowe's eyes), Mathis began to fall behind and took a knee in the fourth. Infamously Bowe would knock Mathis out while he was on the floor, yet instead of being disqualified referee Arthur Mercante Sr and New Jersey commission boss Larry Hazzard agreed on voiding the contest, a suspicious move heavily criticised in the boxing and national press.
In 1995 Mathis retained his USBA belt with a one sided points win over the faded ex-contender Alex Garcia (heavyweight boxer), thus setting up a big fight with the comebacking Mike Tyson, who would be having only his second fight since being released from prison earlier in the year.
Mathis Sr would not see his son's fight with Tyson, as his health problems caught up with him and he died only weeks before the contest.
Junior used his trademark bobbing and weaving style to smother and frustrate Tyson, who was exposed for his rust and struggled to land anything clean on the elusive target. In the third round Tyson's power told as Mathis slipped into a right uppercut, a quick Tyson volley put Mathis down although referee Frank Capuccino waved off the fight without reaching the count of 10.
A 1996 fight with hot prospect Obed Sullivan ended unsatisfactorily with a no contest in the 5th round, after Sullivan was badly cut in a clash of heads. Bizarrely, this would be the third no contest on Mathis's relatively brief career.

1978- Hugo Fidel Cázares (born March 24, 1978 in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico) is a southpaw professional boxer in the Super flyweight (108 lb) division. His record is 30-6-1 (22 KOs). He lost the World Boxing Organization's world junior flyweight championship to Iván Calderón.

1924- Harry Greb KO 12 Fay Kaiser, Baltimore. Retains World Middleweight Title.

1932- Billy Petrolle KO 12 Battling Battalino, NYC. Referee: Ed Smith. A crowd of 18,000 watched as "Petrolle cut Battalino to pieces with vicious rights and lefts to the head, brought blood str3aming from a dozen cuts, and finally stopped him after one minute and 31 seconds of the twelfth and final round. Two smashing punches to the body made Battalino sway. Another volley to the head sent him reeling into the ropes. Still he refused to go down but he was obviously out on his feet and Referee Gunboat Smith stepped in and awarded the fight to Petrolle on a technical knockout." (AP).

1933- "Slapsie" Maxie Rosenbloom KO 4 Bob Goodwin, NYC. Retains World Light Heavyweight Title.

1938- Benny Lynch D 15 Peter Kane, Liverpool. Retains World Flyweight Title. https://uploadir.com/u/rj6ovrbi

1950- Rocky Marciano W 10 Roland La Starza, NYC. A disputed verdict. Only a knockdown scored by Marciano keeps this fight from being ruled a draw.

1962- Emile Griffith KO 12 Benny (Kid) Paret, NYC. Regains World Welterweight Title.
Paret dies 10-days later as a result of the battering he received.
This would be the grief stricken Ruby Goldstein’s last fight as a referee.

McAuliffe emigrated to the United States in 1871, where he spent his early years in Bangor, Maine. He was known as a strong two handed fighter with "cat-like" reflexes, and was nick-named 'The Napolean of the Ring'. Fighting out of Williamsburg, Brooklyn, he was one of only nine boxers to remain undefeated throughout his entire career. He was the Lightweight Champion of the World from 1886 to 1893. McAuliffe was inducted into the Ring Boxing Hall of Fame in 1954 and the International Boxing Hall of Fame in 1995.
He died on November 5, 1937, at his home on Austin Street in Forest Hills, Queens.

1970- Buster Mathis Jr. (born in Grand Rapids, Michigan)
Former American boxer in the heavyweight division.
The son of Buster Mathis, a heavyweight boxer from the 1960s, Mathis Jr was a heavy man and took up boxing to lose weight.
Mathis Jr. turned pro in 1991 and quickly put together 12 wins. A busy, crowding fighter, Mathis was small for a heavyweight at around 220 lbs but skilled enough to beat fairly respected fighters like Levi Billups, Justin Fortune and Mike Dixon very early in his career. Buster Mathis encouraged his son to fewer higher paying fights, using the Mathis name to his advantage. He was considered a weak puncher (3 KO's in those 12 fights) but his opposition was above average.
In 1993 he challenged Mike 'The Bounty' Hunter (23-3) for his USBA heavyweight belt. Hunter won a close decision over Mathis. The loss however was soon voided after Hunter later tested positive for cocaine.
In 1994 Mathis again contested the USBA belt (stripped from Hunter), this time winning an impressive 12 round decision over ex-Olympic champion Tyrell Biggs (27-7).
In August of that year Mathis was brought in as the comeback opponent for former undisputed champion Riddick Bowe. After a good effort bobbing and weaving out of the way of Bowe's best shots, Mathis began to fall behind and took a knee in the fourth. Bowe knocked Mathis out while he was on the floor, yet instead of being disqualified, referee Arthur Mercante Sr and New Jersey commission boss Larry Hazzard agreed to void the contest.
In 1995 Mathis retained his USBA belt with a point win over contender Alex Garcia, thus setting up a fight with Mike Tyson. This was Tyson's second fight since being released from prison earlier in the year.
Mathis Sr did not see his son's fight with Tyson, as his health problems caught up with him and he died only weeks before the contest.
In the third round Tyson knocked Mathis out with a right uppercut.
A 1996 fight with prospect Obed Sullivan ended with a no contest in the 5th round, after Sullivan was badly cut in a clash of heads. This was the third no contest in Mathis's relatively brief career.
In November of 1996 Mathis lost his USBA belt to undefeated Lou Savarese.
Mathis retired at the age of 26 with a 21-2 (7 KO's) record, and 3 no contests.
After his boxing career he studied business and was hired as a match maker for a boxing promoter.

1978- Hugo Cazares (born Hugo Fidel Cázares in Los Mochis, Sinaloa, Mexico)
A southpaw professional boxer in the Super flyweight (115 lb) division. He is the current WBA Super Flyweight champion and former WBO Light Flyweight champion. His record is 32-6-2 (23 KOs).
On April 30, 2005, Cazares won the World Boxing Organization world junior flyweight title by defeating reigning champion Nelson Dieppa. Cazares defended the title twice in 2005, against former champion Alex Sánchez and Kaichon Sor Vorapin. In 2006, he defended the title two additional times against Domingo Guillen and a rematch with Dieppa. In 2006, he successfully defended his title for a fifth time against Wilfrido Valdez.
In his next bout, Cazares lost the WBO junior flyweight title by split decision to Iván Calderón in Calderon's home territory of Puerto Rico. Cazares dropped Calderon in the 8th round. Cazares then defeated former champion Kermin Guardia before facing Calderon in a rematch. Cazares lost the rematch by technical decision in the 7th round after Calderon sustained a cut from an accidental clash of heads.
Cazares then moved up two divisions and scored three straight victories, including a win over former champion Roberto Vasquez. On September 30, 2009, Cazares faced WBA Super Flyweight champion Nobuo Nashiro. The bout ended in a 12 round draw. The two faced off in a rematch, this time Cazares defeated Nashiro by unanimous decision as he captured the WBA Super Flyweight title. Cázares successfully defended his title three times in 2010 with victories over Everardo Morales, Alberto Rossel, and Hiroyuki Hisataka.
