@TitleBoutBoxing says @Klitschko should dominate @AnthonyfJoshua #KlitschkoJoshua #Boxing

The Title Bout Championship Boxing Game picks Wladimir
By Alex Pierpaoli

As you know if you watch the Blast-From-The-Past on The Billy C Morning Show each Wednesday, you know we like to end each segment by using the Title Bout Championship Boxing Game fight simulation software in setting up fantasy match-ups. Well, in light of tonight's mega-fight at Wembley Arena we decided to see what the game said about Wladimir Klitschko versus Anthony Joshua.

As I do each week on the Blast, I, first, put the fighters in against each other in one 12 round bout and then made them fight 100 times.

So, what happens? Plain and simple, Wlad destroys Joshua.

When Klitschko and Joshua meet the first time Wlad Klitschko wins by fifth round TKO (2:34) dropping the Briton 3 times before the Ref waves it off.

Then when opposing each other over one hundred fights, Wlad Klitschko dominates with 94 wins, six defeats and 78 knockouts. All six of Joshua's wins came by way of knockout.

So despite approximately 5-to-1 odds currently in favor of Joshua, the Title Bout game likes Wlad Klitschko to win and win big, regaining the championship for the third time.

I see it going that way as well. Wlad by KO.

Results from Mohegan Sun

World ranked light heavyweight Sullivan Barrera scored a fifth round TKO victory over Paul Parker in the Main Event of a six bout card at Mohegan Sun. Broadcast live on HBO Latino, Barrera chopped down his rangey, southpaw opponent despite several difficult moments caused by accidental headbutts. Barrera,  178lbs of Guantanamo, Cuba, dropped Parker at the end of the fourth with a big right but to his credit "Pay-Per-View" Parker recovered and came out to do battle in the fifth. But it was not to be. Barrera cracked him with a hard left hook that sent Parker reeling back into the ropes and down to the canvas. Referee Harvey Dock allowed him to continue but Barrera would not be denied and opened up with a fussillade of blows that caused the ref to stop the fight at 2:08 of the fifth. In victory Sullivan Barrera improved to 19-1 (14) while Paul Parker fell to 8-2 (4).

Vaughn Alexander 162lbs of Saint Louis, MO defeated Andres Calixto 160.5lbs of Delicias, Mexico. Vaughn Alexander, the older brother of Devon Alexander, nailed Calixto with speedy, accurate punches throughout the bout. Calixto waved Alexander on after absorbing hard lefts to the body and
Vaughn Alexander (R) sizes-up Andres Calixto (L)
Alexander obliged him, slamming Calixto in the guts repeatedly. Alexander threw precious few jabs, his attack is more of a pot-shotting counter-puncher who was always in control of the bout. Calixto was game in exchanges but was cautioned repeatedly for holding and hitting and lost a point in the final round when he continued doing it. At the end of ten the judges saw it as a lopsided win for Alexander with scores of 100-89 and 99-90 twice. Alexander is now 3-0 since his return to boxing after an 11 year stint in prison. He is 8-0 (5) overall. Andres Calixto dropped to 14-3 (9).

off-tv bouts:

Cassius Chaney, 245lbs of New London, CT outpointed Juan Goode 256lbs of Detroit, MI in an entertaining 6 round heavyweight scrap.  Goode pressured Chaney throughout the bout, coming forward into Chaney's straight punches. As the rounds wore on Chaney landed often with a heavy
Cassius Chaney smacks Juan Goode with a left hook
overhand right that got Goode's attention but never slowed his attack. In the final round Goode had his best moments, flurrying at the body of Chaney and coming up to the head with wide jolts. At the end of six the official judges were unanimous, all seeing it identically at 59-55 for New London's Cassius Chaney. Chaney improved his record to 10-0 (5) while the gutsy Juan Goode dropped to 8-5 (6) in defeat.

Madiyar Ashkeyev 154lbs, of Kazakhstan battered Shawn Cameron 153lbs, of Brooklyn, NY through seven rounds before Ref. Danny Schiavone had seen enough. Ashkeyev kept the pressure on all night despite suffering a bloody gash caused by a headbutt in round one. Cameron, a durable southpaw, refused to submit despite being heavily outgunned and out-slicked. Ashkeyev showed a murderous array of punches in his arsenal including a mean double left hook to the body and head that he slammed against Cameron's side repeatedly. The ringside

physician visited Cameron's corner after a bruising sixth round and the bout continued into the seventh round. But not for long. With Ashkeyev slamming Cameron with lefts and rights along the ropes, ref Danny Schiavone stepped in to halt the bout at 1:06 of round 7. Madiyar Ashkeyev rose impressively to 8-0 (4) while tough Shawn Cameron fell to 10-3 (5).

Enriko Gogokhia 148 3/4 lbs of Georgia, the country not the state, defeated Bryan Goldsby 147.5 of Macon, Georgia, the state, not the country. Goldsby was durable while it lasted but the southpaw Gogokhia got right to work, landing heavy power punches, especially a blasting straight left power shot that found Goldsby chin again and again. Goldsby held up under quite an assault but was never off his feet despite being driven back into the ropes several times. Between the second and third round, Goldsby's corner signaled Referee Danny Schiavone that they'd had enough. With the TKO victory Gogokhia improved to 4-0 (2) while Goldsby dropped to 4-3.

Meiirim Nursultanov 160lbs, 1-0 of Kazakhstan improved to 2-0 (1) with a second round TKO over Javier Olvera 159.5lbs of Mexico. Nursultanov was always in charge, bashing away at the head and body of Olvera from the opening gong. A barrage of heavy punches put Olvera down once in the first but he survived into round two where Nursultanov continued battering him. In round two Olvera staggered away from Nursultanov after the Kazakh landed a heavy shot to the head. Referee Danny

Schiavone had seen in enough and waved it off at 1:115 of the second. Olvera's record fell to 1-1 (1).

Featherweight Kevin Asmat 2-1 (2) was to face Jonathan Ramos 1-2 in a 4 rounder but Ramos came in below the minimum weight requirement and the bout was scratched.

Also in attendance were Demetrius Andrade, Jesse Vargas and trainer Don Turner.

Below is what the fighters and dais guests had to say at the press conference:

Andre "S.O.G." Ward - Unified Light Heavyweight World Champion

"I appreciate everybody for coming out today. It's always good to be home in the Bay Area. It's amazing how in a short time, eight, nine, ten years, we put the Bay on the map in terms of the boxing world. Oakland used to be a major fight town, and we got away from it. But through myself and many other young fighters, contenders who may not have had opportunities that I was afforded, we're doing our part to continue to represent the Bay in a major way and that's a beautiful thing.

"I'm excited about this rematch. These are the things I dreamed about as a kid. I love it. I love the back and forth, some people being with me and some people not being with me. I don't mind the stuff they talk about on social media. That's perception. I try and deal in the reality.

"At the end of the day, you've got to see me on June 17, we've got to fight. I don't care what you say, I don't care what the team says. That's going to make headlines. That's all good and part of the business. I understand the business very well and I'm good with that. But if you guys know me - the

Uncasville, CT:      Sullivan Barrera (18-1, 13 KOs), the exciting Miami-based light heavyweight from Cuba, will return to HBO Latino Boxing on Saturday, April 15 at Mohegan Sun's Uncas Ballroom against Toledo, OH native Paul "Pay Per View" Parker (8-1, 4 KOs). Barrera will look to build on his thrilling knockout victory on HBO Latino® Boxing in Decemberover previously unbeaten prospect Vyacheslav Shabranskyy, while the prospect Parker looks to make a statement in the biggest challenge of his career to date. The HBO Latino Boxing telecast begins at 11:00 p.m. ET (live ET/tape-delayed PT).

Barrera, 35, of Guantanamo Bay, Cuba made his professional debut in 2009 after defecting to the United States. His career began with five straight knockouts and nearly seven-year undefeated streak until he suffered his first defeat against current WBO, WBA and IBF Light Heavyweight World Champion Andre "SOG" Ward in March of last year. Barrera bounced back in late 2016 with his upset KO over Shabranskyy in his most-recent appearance on HBO Latino.

Parker, 32, has had an impressive career thus far since his professional debut in 2012. His only loss was a third-round TKO against Shabranskyy in June of 2015. He rebounded in early 2016 with an eight-round split decision victory over Lionell "Lonnie B" Thompson.

In the televised co-feature, Russian slugger Arif "The Predator" Magomedov (18-1, 11 KOs) will take on Mexican prospect Elias "Latin Kid" Espadas (13-3, 8 KOs) in a ten-round middleweight showdown. Magomedov, 24, last appeared on HBO Latino in May of last year when he last a hard-fought battle to Andrew Hernandez in Las Vegas. In his most recent bout he stopped Chris Herrmann in the second round in his home country of Russia.

Espadas, 26, is from Merida, Yucatan, Mexico and made his professional debut nearly five years ago in his home country of Mexico. He has fought several times in the US in both California and Florida but this will be his first time fighting in New England.

Results from @TwinRiverCasino #Boxing #FNF @JimmyQSWilliams vs. Nick DeLomba

Jimmy Quiet Storm Williams batters Nick DeLomba over ten rounds to pick up the WBC USNBC Welterweight Title at Twin River Event Center
By Alex Pierpaoli

New Haven's Jimmy Williams stormed into Lincoln, Rhode Island last night to claim the vacant WBC USNBC Welterweight Championship with a 10 round unanimous decision victory over Cranston, RI's Nick DeLomba in the Main Event of an eleven bout card promoted by Rhode Island-based Classic Entertainment and Sports.
Years ago Jack Blackburn, the great lightweight turned-trainer of heavyweight champ Joe Louis, told his charge that when the deck is stacked against you "let your right fist be the referee." Fighting for the first time beyond the six round distance in his opponent's hometown, Jimmy Williams, 143.5lbs, seemed to embody Blackburn's exhortation, blasting away at and dropping Nick Delomba, 142lbs, with two big right hands in the very first round. Stunned by the first jolting right about halfway through the first, DeLomba smirked in a clinch trying to conceal his surprise. Williams kept the pressure on his traditionally slow-starting opponent and never let up.
From a distance it was Williams landing the one-two again and again, while DeLomba tried crowding him, hoping to land combinations in close. Periodically DeLomba succeeded in getting close but not to be denied, Williams often exchanged in close and fired right back when DeLomba flurried.
The seventh round was especially brutal, Williams hurt DeLomba repeatedly and looked to be very close to stopping him. To his credit, DeLomba recovered well and kept trying to the final bell to end the tenth, a distance he too was going for the very first time.
After ten the judges saw it 98-91, 97-92 x 2 all in favor of Williams.
In his post-fight comments Williams welcomed a rematch and was proud to dedicate the fight to the memory of his mom and dad, both deceased. Jimmy Quiet Storm Williams picked up the WBC USNBC Welterweight Title and improved to 13-0-1 (5) while DeLomba fell to 11-2 (2).
