"A champion, a true champion is to take on all capable challengers. A true champion defends his title, and looks for matches that pose a threat in order to prove to the world he deserves to be called the best of the best."

"Man, it really felt good to be home and some of my family and grandkids were here so we had a very pleasant evening. Again, thanks for all of the encouragement and kind words. You are truly a great bunch of friends."

Born On This Day

1952- Elisha Obed (born in Nassau, Bahamas)
Bahamian boxer at middleweight considered to be one of the greatest fighters to ever to come out of the Bahamas.
Obed entered the amateur ranks at age 12. Fighting almost weekly, he ran up an undefeated record of 46-0 (16 knockouts). At 14, he decided to turn professional.
For almost 6 years, he lingered on small promotions on the island of the Bahamas. He was billed as undefeated, but in reality, he had lost a fight by knockout to veteran Kid Carew. His loss to Kid Carew was unlisted for almost 8 years, as he was reported incorrectly as undefeated in the press until his loss to Eckhard Dagge.
Veteran trainer, manager, and promoter Moe Fleischer traveled to Nassau to "check-out" this upcoming prospect. Mike Dundee, son of Angelo Dundee came in as his manager.
Soon after Obed was fighting main events. He earned a top ten ranking by knocking out former title contender Bunny Grant. Obed made his U.S. debut in Florida. Knocked out every top middleweight boxer in Florida in the early 1970s, including state Champion Dennis Riggs and former champion Jimmy Williams.
In 1975 he captured the WBC Light Middleweight Title by defeating Miguel de Oliveira. He defended the title twice before losing the belt to Germany's Eckhard Dagge in 1976 when he quit, claiming he had blurred vision. Obed stated that he had been thumbed in the eye by Dagge. In actuality, he was later found to have a detached retina and is legally blind in that eye.
Obed decided to enter the middleweight ranks. By 27, he was back to where he started from, fighting on local fight cards in Nassau. He retired in 1988.

1975- Sergio Martinez (born Sergio Gabriel Martinez in Quilmes, Buenos Aires, Argentina)
Argentine Middleweight professional boxer based in Oxnard, California. He is the current Ring World Middleweight Champion, and the former WBC World Middleweight titlist, he is also the former WBC Super Welterweight Champion. Ring Magazine currently rates Martinez as the number three pound-for-pound boxer in the world. In addition, The Ring Magazine also named Sergio Martinez their 2010 Fighter of the Year.
Martinez, a former professional cyclist and soccer player, only began boxing at the age of 20. His professional record consists of 46 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws. The most notable of his wins came against Kelly Pavlik, a fight in which he became the Middleweight champion, and his second-round knockout victory of Paul "The Punisher" Williams on November 20, 2010 in a rematch of their first bout.
Martinez had his first professional fight on December 27, 1997 in Ituzaingo, Buenos Aires, Argentina. The opponent for his professional debut, Cristian Marcelo Vivas, was disqualified in the second round, giving Martinez his first win. Martinez fought the first 17 fights of his career in his native Argentina, compiling a record of 16-0-1.
After facing a relatively low level of opposition for his first 17 fights in Argentina, Martinez fought overseas for the first time, travelling to the United States to face Antonio Margarito. The fight took place on February 19, 2000 at the Mandalay Bay Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. The contest started badly for Martinez as Margarito scored a knockdown in the first round. Although Martinez recovered and had some success in the early rounds, he was hurt by a number of punches in round 7 leading to a stoppage by the referee, thus handing Martinez his first loss.
Martinez claimed the interim WBC Light Middleweight title on October 4, 2008, beating Alex Bunema via an eighth round retirement. On February 14, 2009 Martinez fought to a majority draw against Puerto Rican Kermit Cintron. The fight was controversial for a number of reasons; during the seventh round Martinez knocked Cintron down with a clean left hand shot, the referee reached the count of ten and waved the fight off. However, this was disputed by Cintron, who claimed that the knockdown was a result of a headbutt. Cintron's protestations led to the referee overturning his decision and the fight continued. The fight went the twelve round distance and the scorecards revealed a draw, many ringside observers felt that the decision was a robbery and that Martinez easily outboxed Cintron and should have gained the victory.
On May 21, 2009, WBC Light Middleweight champion Vernon Forrest was stripped of his title due to a rib injury that would leave him out of action indefinitely. Because of the injury and his inability to fight Sergio Martinez, Martinez's interim title was upgraded to full WBC Title status.
On December 5, 2009 Martinez fought Paul Williams in a non-title Middleweight bout at Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall. Both boxers traded knockdowns in an opening round of a contest that has been described as a fight of the year candidate.[7] The next two rounds were heavily in Martinez's favor as he hit Williams with barrages of counter punches. Rounds 4-7 showed Williams coming back effectively landing hard lefts to the head of Martinez. In rounds 8-11 Martinez again confused Williams by using different varieties of punches including straight lead lefts to the body followed by right hooks to the head and straight lefts to the face. The 12th and final round showed much fatigue in Martinez and Williams but the fighters fought through to the end. Williams won a close majority decision over Martinez with the judges scoring: Pierre Benoist 119-110 for Williams, Lynn Carter 115-113 for Williams and Julie Lederman 114-114. Afterward both fighters expressed interest in a possible rematch.
After an impressive performance against Paul "The Punisher" Williams, Sergio Martinez stayed at Middleweight and challenged the World Champion Kelly Pavlik. The fight took place in Atlantic City's Boardwalk Hall on April 17, 2010. Martinez defeated Pavlik via unanimous decision in a bout which saw Martinez overcome an early knockdown to subsequently dominate the late rounds. Pavlik had cuts above both eyes for several rounds which did not stop bleeding; he said they affected his vision and performance. Although there was a rematch clause in the contract, Pavlik chose not to enforce it, stating his desire to move up in weight.
The victory over Pavlik earned Martinez the Middleweight Championship of the WBC, The Ring and the WBO.
Martínez after defending his title against Paul Williams at the Boardwalk Hall in November, 2010.
With Martinez winning the Middleweight championship, he was required to make some decisions regarding his conflicting WBC Super Welterweight (Light Middleweight) title. The sanctioning organizations for boxing recognize that boxers may choose to move up or down in the weight categories, yet they also wish to make all championship belts available to challenge. As such, their rules prohibit a fighter from simultaneously holding belts in multiple divisions. This prohibition includes holding a title with one sanctioning organization while also holding a title in a different weight class with a different organization. Eight weeks after the Pavlik fight, when Martinez failed to announce a preference to be a Super Welterweight or a Middleweight champion (the WBO rules allow ten days to decide), the WBO stripped him of their Middleweight title. A week later, Martinez did inform the WBC that he was willing to vacate their Super Welterweight title and maintain his WBC Middleweight belt.
On November 20, 2010, Sergio got a chance to avenge his loss to Williams. Martinez was ranked fourth pound for pound, while Willams was No. 3. Many speculated that this would be a fight of the year candidate. Approximately one minute into the second round, Martinez knocked Williams out with an over-the-top left hand to retain his title. The knockout was called by many as the knockout of the year. Williams stated to Max Kellerman after the fight, "He caught me with a punch I did not see."

1987- Bobby Czyz KO 2 Willie Edwards, Atlantic City. Retains IBF World Light Heavyweight Title.



Czyz was a solid fighter throughout his whole career. Even when he was ranked first, I never saw him as the best though. He was, however, a pretty good boxing commentator afterward. I met Czyz during my trip to the boxing hall of fame while he was golfing.

Miami Beach, Florida-

Middleweight Al Andrews (38-16-2) of St. Paul, Minnesota unanimously outpointed light heavyweight Billy Kilgore (35-21-4) of Deland, Florida over 10 rounds.

Kansas City, Missouri-

Middleweight Jesse Turner (37-21-6) of St. Louis, Missouri won the 10-round main event by unanimously outpointing light heavyweight prospect LeRoy Green (7-4-1) of Kansas City.
