Victorious English Champ Ochieng Eyes British Or Commonwealth Title Next

On Saturday night Stoke Newington’s Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng retained his English Light Middleweight title in emphatic style, on the undercard of Carl Froch versus Lucian Bute IBF World Super Middleweight title clash in Nottingham.

Erick’s first defense of the title he won back in January, via a ninth round retirement by then opponent Nick Quigley, was against local ‘Masters’ title holder AA Lowe.

Erick took a laid back approach to the bout, preferring to box of the back foot and pick his punches, and boy did he pick them in style on his way to securing a virtual shut out points victory.

Judge Terry O’Connor clearly felt that Erick reigned supreme, scoring every round in Erick’s favour (100-90), judge Steve Gray didn’t see it much different, only scoring one round in favour of AA Lowe (99-91) and judge Howard Foster scored only two rounds in favour of Erick’s challenger (98-92).

Last night Erick returned victorious to his ‘home’ gym, the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, where he spoke about the excellent victory and his future aspirations. “First of all I want to give thanks to Jesus Christ for the victory.

Yeah, the fight, I came out quick, nice and relaxed. I was using my jab, most of my punches were one-two, one-two-three, but mostly using the jab and catching him all the time and I was making him miss.

The thing is I could have changed gear, my speed, and finished things early but I was relaxed.

Around round seven or eight I caught him with a right hook, straight right hand, left hook combination and rocked him a bit, but I took my foot of the gas and used my jab.

Yeah it was a comfortable win, one of the judges gave me all the rounds and two of the judges gave me all but two rounds.

I think one of them was the last round, I was just taking my time and enjoying myself. It was a big venue, it was incredible.

A big thanks to my supporters, all I could hear was Eagle, Eagle, Eagle all through the fight, yeah it was an awesome night.”

Erick then turned his attention to the headlining bout, in which fellow Matchroom Sport promoted Carl Froch comprehensively beat former Champion Lucian Bute to become a three time World Champion. “ It was an awesome fight. Carl Froch took the fight to Bute, Bute didn’t know what hit him and before he knew the fight was over.

Carl’s now a three time World Champion, without doubt making him our most successful boxer.

The whole night was electrifying, every punch Carl threw had the crowd cheering. He was incredible, it was an awesome night.”

Before returning to his fight and his future aspirations. “Fighting on such a big event in front of such a huge crowd made me so excited, I liked the environment, the big crowd and everyone chanting my name.

It’s just a matter of time, because this is where I see myself in the future. I had a photo taken of me with Carl Froch and the IBF belt, it looked good on me, I was wearing my red jacket and his IBF belt is red, so it’s yeah I’m going for the IBF.

Obviously my aim is to become World Champion and one of the titles will be the IBF, that or the WBC.

Hopefully I’ll be defending my title next on the undercard of ‘Special K’, Kell Brook’s, fight on the 7th July, obviously we’re still waiting for confirmation.

Then, God willing, by the end of the year I’ll be fighting for the British or Commonwealth title – It’s onwards and upwards.

I want to give a big thanks to all my fans, you’re fabulous. I want to give thanks to my sponsors, King Apparel, BoxFit, Glenn Insurance and Addison Lee, thank you guys for your support which I really appreciate and thank you Rio at the TRAD TKO.”

Ochieng Brimming With Confidence, Ahead Of Title Defense On May 26th

Back in January Stoke Newington’s Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng won the English Light Middleweight title in emphatic style, on just his tenth professional outing, in a sensational all action battle against Liverpool’s Nick Quigley, that many have as an early contender for 2012 ‘Fight of the Year’ honours

In just under two weeks time 25 year old Erick will make the first defense of this recently acquired title, against Newark’s AA Lowe, on the undercard of the biggest, most meaningful UK event of the year so far, when Carl Froch challenges Lucian Bute for the IBF Super Middleweight Crown, at the Nottingham Arena.

Following a recent training session, at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, an ebullient Erick was not only brimming with confidence, of victory on the 26th May, but was also keen to emphasize his Championship credentials.

“Yeah, I’ll be out again on the 26th May defending my English title against AA Lowe.

He’s a good boxer, he’s been around, so we’re looking to perform good, look good and retain my title in style.”

“Training has been excellent as ever, my manager/coach Brian Lawrence wouldn’t have it any other way and again I’ve had the best sparring you can get.

The quality of sparring here at the TRAD TKO makes all the difference, I did some eight rounders with Colin Lynes the other week and have had plenty of other quality sparring, these sparring sessions are great preparation.”

“I mean Colin Lynes is a former British, European and World Champion, you can’t get better than that, you’re always learning from those guys.

As you can see we’re not leaving any stone unturned in the gym, I’m in good shape so I’m looking to put a good performance on the 26th May.”

“I never look past people or my next fight, but have to say this is just the start, I’ve always said I am already a World Champion, just people don’t know it yet, they will soon but right now they know I’m the English Champion.

I will defend my title successfully on the 26th May and then by the end of the year my focus will be on the British or Commonwealth title.”

Erick ‘The Eagle’ Ochieng’s English Light Middleweight title defense, against AA Lowe, will be main support at the Matchroom Sport promoted event headlined by the IBF Super Middleweight World Championship bout between Montreal, Canada based Romanian Lucian Bute and Nottingham’s Carl Froch, which co-features Carl Frampton versus Raul Hirales, for the IBF Inter-Continental Super Bantamweight title, at the Nottingham Arena in Nottingham on Saturday 26th May 2012 and will be shown live and exclusive on Sky Sports.

Tickets, priced £40, or £50 including coach from London to Nottingham and return, are available on line at www.tkoboxoffice.com or direct from Erick at the TRAD TKO Boxing Gym, Gillian House, Stephenson Street, Canning Town, London E16 4SA

Fight Report: McAleese, Bailey and Bacon Do The Business Whilst Scriven Holds Gladman To A Surprise Draw

Fight Report: McAleese, Bailey and Bacon Do The Business Whilst Scriven Holds Gladman To A Surprise Draw

Report and Photos By Gianluca (Rio) Di Caro

On Saturday night the boxing fraternity made it’s annual pilgrimage to the British home of Horse Racing – Newmarket – for the Graham Earl, in association with the TKO Boxing Gym, promoted ‘Return of the Mac’ event.

Before I get onto the actual fight report I have to say that this was my first visit to Newmarket and more importantly the Tattersalls Sales Rooms, which is an exceptional facility set in stunning grounds on the outskirts of the beautiful town. The sales room itself has to be the premier small hall venue in the country, the circular design makes the venue feel more like a Roman Amphitheater and provides the fans with an unrivaled viewing experience. I was mightily impressed as you may be able to tell.

Another thing that impressed me were the changing rooms, now usually these are quite bland and cramped, and in some cases downright decrepit – please note York Hall. Not so at Tattersalls. Initially the house fighters were located in the red room – a huge hall like room with priceless oil paintings adorning every wall, leather Chesterfields sofas and a huge Chandelier as the centre piece.

However Johnny Eames stated a preference for the smaller State rooms as used in previous years, which again featured priceless oil paintings etc, but also more importantly included both Sky TV and a close circuit TV link from the Sales Rooms,which enabled the fighters to be able to relax pre-battle by watching Chelsea versus Tottenham Hotspurs as well as all the action and drama as it unfolded from each bout.

Graham Earl and Johnny Eames created the event and, along with Roy Hilder, matched it to give the fans a feel of old time Roman Gladiatorial battles, each fight really did have that feel about them, especially the headliner which featured – and was named in honour of – Newmarket’s very own ‘Phat’ Pat McAleese, who locked horns with Newark’s AA Lowe.

Right from the opening bell both protagonists decided attack was the best form of defense and started trading in the centre of the ring, matching punch for punch, until around the second minute when McAleese changed tack slightly by moving around Lowe before letting rip with an assortment of combinations before lithely moving aside, causing Lowe’s shots to find nothing but fresh air. It was that final minute that secured the round for McAleese in my book.

Round two was more or less more of the same, albeit it more of the same as the final minute of the first round, McAleese was on fire, at times making Lowe’s efforts seem rather amateurish, which they were far from. McAleese showcased a series of body to head combinations, One of which started with a vicious left to the body followed by a right to the head before slipping back to the body with a screaming left right double. Late on Lowe started to push forward to try and take control but was often met with a solid jab or a straight right to stop his forceful advance. An easy round to call in my book, it was McAleese’s.

Normal service resumed in the third, with both McAleese and Lowe throwing all caution to the wind. However, no matter how hard Lowe tried to push forward, throughout McAleese just planted his feet and played the body of the Newark man like it was xylophone. It seemed that McAleese could plant single and combinations of body shots at will. Again I see this round an easy call for McAleese.

The fourth see McAleese shoot from his corner as the bell sounded to meet Lowe, who was just a few feet out from his corner, with a solid right to the chin before again slipping down to land a stinging left to the body. Lowe really showed his mettle in this round, he took some serious punishment but just kept coming forward, he just would not back down no matter how many times a McAleese exocet pierced his defense.

Round five was more or less the same with McAleese shooting forward on the bell to cut of the ring. Again McAleese let rip with vicious body shots throughout in an effort to slow down the constantly forward coming Lowe. Mid way through the round McAleese’s work rate slowed noticeably, occasionally allowing Lowe to gain some success. Each time this happened it seemed to light the blue fuse paper to detonate yet another McAleese body salvo. This was a much closer round, similar to the first, but even though Lowe had the higher work rate it was still McAleese that landed the more meaningful punches, enough in my book to secure the round.

The scene was set for a cracking final round, Lowe’s trainer former World Champ Carl Greaves told his charge in no uncertain terms that he needed a knockdown or knockout in the final round to get the win.

Right from the opening bell the tables were turned, this time it was Lowe who shot out of the corner to close down the ring and force McAleese back onto the ropes. With McAleese corralled Lowe let rip with a salvo of combinations. McAleese weaved and ducked his way out of trouble only to be chased down and receive another relentless attack. In his hurry to evade yet another attack McAleese lost his footing and crashed to the deck, luckily the referee had seen that no contact had been made and waved the count off.

With Carl Greaves screaming from his corner Lowe stepped up a gear and continued his attack, with even more vigour, and landed a peach of a right which sent McAleese reeling back onto the ropes. McAleese used the momentum against the ropes to catapult himself into the path of the fast forward moving Lowe and let rip with a big right of his own which stopped the Newark man in his tracks, momentarily.

Lowe again stepped up a gear and again forced a tired looking McAleese back onto the ropes with another flurry of nitro burning punches. Then, with barely seconds of the round to go, Lowe let rip with a soid left jab that sent the tiring McAleese to the canvas.

All fears of a repeat of the ending of the McAleese-Noble battle last year quickly subsided as McAleese made his way to his feet to see out the final second or two of the round and secure a much deserved victory with a 58-56 points decision.

Carl Greaves remonstrated with referee Mark Green, as he felt the two points for the knockdown was enough to secure the win for his man. Greaves then approached McAleese’s manager/co-trainer Johnny Eames to ask for a rematch, and to add a little extra gravitas to the proposal suggested that it should be for a title. Now that’s a mouth watering prospect.

Whilst McAleese-Lowe was without doubt a great fight the preceding battle between Slough’s Ian Bailey and Mansfield based Latvian Pavels Senkovs was a cracker and rightly received the accolade of being named the fight of the night.

Right from the outset both protagonists set out their stall in the centre ring, with neither seemingly willing to concede any ground whatsoever, what followed was a minute or so of good old fashioned slug fest.

As the round progressed the diminutive Bailey began to use his lesser height as an advantage, by dipping and moving around Senkovs before letting off powerful bodyshots of rib cracking proportions. Senkovs tried in vane to thwart Bailey’s regular forays to the body with long sharp jabs. Unfortunately for Senkovs his height advantage was working against him as Bailey easily avoided the downward shots.

Round two and three were very much more of the same, except that Bailey’s movement became more and more fluid and his body attacks became even more frequent. Please don’t go reading this as total domination on Bailey’s behalf, it wasn’t just that Senkovs was at a disadvantage being the taller of the two. Senkovs put together many excellent attacks, that pushed Bailey back onto the ropes, but the ever mobile Bailey would absorb part one and move out of the way for part two before returning with yet another body attack. Late on in the third Bailey switched to the head, as Senkovs covered up the body to prevent yet another painful attack, the result soon showed as Senkovs right eye reddened noticeably.

The previous rounds were nonstop action, yet somehow the pair summoned up the energy to step up the pace for a final round slug fest. With a do or die attitude both went in search of a stoppage finish, letting rip with bomb after bomb with little thought of defense. Again Senkovs’ height advantage worked against him as Bailey constantly moved around him to land huge hooks to the body. At the end of twelve minutes of virtually nonstop action referee Mark Green raised Bailey’s hand aloft declaring him victor by a 40-37 points margin.

The second bout of the night see the professional debut of Ipswich Super Middleweight Henry Bacon against Canning Town’s Costas Osben.

Osben was clearly intent on putting his 1-1-1 record back into the positive column by the way he took the fight to the new boy. Bacon on the other hand was barely fazed by the ferociousness of Osben’s opening salvos, instead the youngster kept a cool head and turned to his trusty jab to keep the Londoner at bay.

As the round progressed Bacon started to take the fight back to Osben, picking his shots rather than jab his way out of trouble as he did in the early part of the round. As the seconds ticked away Bacon’s confidence grew in leaps and bounds and no matter how much Osben pushed the youngster just responded with a crisp jab followed by a stinging right hand.

Seeing a second potential drawing near, Osben really stepped up the pressure in the fourth and just attacked, attacked and attacked. Unfortunately for him though the previous round had given Bacon the confidence to weather the storm and retaliate with some excellent boxing, enough in fact to win the second round also.

Osben’s attacks in the third were much milder than in the previous rounds, no real surprise there as he exerted a lot of energy, to no avail, in the second. This allowed Bacon to take total control of the bout and just pick off the rapidly tiring Osben at will with some quality jabs, hooks as well as some beautiful combinations at times.

The final round was a war, Osben summoned up all the effort he could muster as he went searching for a stoppage finish. He pushed and he pushed but Bacon thwarted every effort masterfully. About two minutes in, whilst Osben had him backed onto the ropes, Bacon responded punch for punch and then let rip with a vicious right that virtually stopped Osben in his tracks. Perhaps it was his inexperience but instead of going in for the finish Bacon used the opportunity to get away from the ropes. Further excellent exchanges littered the final minute. No surprise that referee Mark Green’s decision went to the debutant, by a tidy 39-37 points margin.

The opening bout featured Cheshunt’s undefeated Welterweight Bobby Gladman against Nottingham’s highly experienced Matt Scriven. On paper this looked a no brainer as Scriven’s record shows his last win was twenty fights ago. Saying that Scriven is known as a tough battler who always comes to fight.

There was that much action in the first round as both the protagonists seemed to be feeling the other. The second round on the other hand was a totally different affair.

From the opening bell Scriven went on the attack, forcing Gladman to utilise his jab in an effort to thwart ‘The Scrivs’ many forceful forays.

Round three see a total turn around, instead of just using his jab Gladman started to counter with heavy hands each time Scriven let rip. In the first minute Gladman let rip with a big right hand that clearly shook his opponent. However Scriven seemed undaunted by this and just stepped up the pace. Another close round, one I felt Gladman had done just enough to win.

The final round was another punch fest, Scriven did the more work, whilst the clearly tiring Gladman landed the more telling shots. At the end of the bout I feel referee Mark Green was one hundred percent correct declaring the bout a draw.

Graham Earl and Johnny Eames should be commended for taking their show on the road and taking the risk of promoting such an event in a rural location. They should also be commended for putting on an excellent night of boxing, It may have been just a four bout show but the assembled crowd at Tattersalls went away more than happy as they were treated four top class all action fights.

Bailey Ready For Showdown With Senkovs On 30th April

Bailey Ready For Showdown With Senkovs On 30th April

Slough’s Ian Bailey is set to face Mansfield based Latvian Pavels Senkovs at the Graham Earl, in association with TKO Boxing Gym, promoted ‘Return of the Mac’ event at Tattersalls Sales Rooms in Newmarket on Saturday 30th April 2011.

Bailey, who campaigns in the Super Bantamweight division, will be looking to reverse the run of losses incurred during the 2010 season. Saying that each fight last year were taken at very short notice and was against high flying unbeaten prospects Ryan Walsh, Carl Frampton, Kid Galahad and Michael Walsh.

Bailey is well known for his willingness to take on the best, even with just a few days notice, and that he always comes with the intention to fight for a win. So no surprise that when a prospect needs a stern test Bailey is called upon to provide it.

For those that see Bailey’s scintillating bout against Belfast’s Carl Frampton in June last year will understand this better than most. Throughout the bout Bailey pushed forward and tested his highly rated opponent, who is touted as a future World Champion by no less than former World Featherweight Champion Barry McGuigan.

After six all action rounds the King’s Hall crowd gave both fighters a standing ovation, not something you would normally expect from such a partisan crowd.

Frampton’s manager and mentor Barry McGuigan also complimented Bailey’s performance when he told the assembled media, “I thought it was absolutely ideal. It was six hard rounds and I knew that the kid wasn’t going to make it easy for him and that’s what he needs to do. Bailey was strong and had a tight defense.”

The ‘Return of the Mac’ event will be Bailey’s first fight, in six, that he has had more than just a few days to prepare for and also gives him his first ‘house fighter’ start since he faced Sid Razak in November ‘09, which coincidentally was also at Tattersalls in Newmarket.

To prepare for the 30th April show Bailey has been regularly sparring former European Bantamweight Champion Ian ‘Dappa’ Napa at the TKO Boxing Gym in Canning Town, London. The quality of sparring, and the rare opportunity to have four weeks to prepare for a full four weeks, are having a positive effect on young Bailey as is clear when he spoke earlier about the upcoming fight. “Yeah, looking forward to it, back in fight training, although I’m always ready and super fit so all’s good.

Been sparring with Ian Napa, which is always good and brings up my fitness levels. I’m not one hundred percent sharp yet, but getting there.

I’m looking forward to getting back to winning ways, after a bad year last year. I made a promise to myself that this year I’m not going to take fights at short notice just because of financial problems last year like I did. I don’t care if that means that this year I’ll only do two as I’m only taking fights if I get four or six weeks notice.

On short notice fights sometimes you may get one that’s close, but all that does is make you think if I had the eight weeks notice the other guy had I’d have won it. That’s the trouble that you end up getting a journeyman record, I’m not a journeyman so I aint going to let that happen.

Fighting is what I do, I love fighting and I’m going to put on a really good show on the 30th.”

Ian Bailey versus Pavels Senkovs is the main support to ‘Phat’ Pat McAleese versus AA Lowe, which headlines the Graham Earl, in association with Johnny Eames’ TKO Boxing Gym, promoted ‘Return Of The Mac’ Event at Tattersalls Sales Rooms in Newmarket, Suffolk on Saturday 30th April 2011.

Also on the show is another of Bailey’s TKO Gym mates, Cheshunt’s exciting, unbeaten in seven, Welterweight Bobby Gladman, who takes on the highly experienced Matt Scriven from Nottingham.

Ipswich Super Middleweight debutante Henry Bacon gets his first professional outing against New Milton, Hampshire’s ‘Dangerous’ Danny Goode.

Further bouts are expected to be announced later this week.

Return Of The Mac, McAleese-Lowe Headlines April 30th Newmarket Show

Return Of The Mac, McAleese-Lowe Headlines April 30th Newmarket Show

Newmarket’s Light Middleweight prospect ‘Phat’ Pat McAleese gets a ‘home’ fight on Saturday 30th April when he headlines the Graham Earl-TKO Boxing Gym co-promoted ‘Return Of The Mac’ event at Tattersalls Sales Rooms in Newmarket, Suffolk.

McAleese’s opponent on the 30th April is AA Lowe, from Newark, Nottinghamshire, who recently unsuccessfully challenged for the BBBofC Midlands Area Light Middleweight title.

The Newmarket outing comes fast on the heels of a truly scintillating performance by McAleese, that see him take a shut out points victory over Spain’s Fran Gonzalez at the ‘Essex Eruption’ event in Dagenham, Essex in mid-March.

There was no feeling out period, both protagonists went to work right from the opening bell. The action was nonstop and produced some of the best pure boxing of the show. For the full three minutes they matched each other punch for punch, it was that close throughout.

Round two see McAleese step things up to try and wrestle control of the round from the gutsy Spaniard. However Gonzalez had no intention to allow him to do so and countered every attack.

Round three see more of the same at first, but the tide was beginning to turn in McAleese’s favour around the two minute mark. McAleese added more venom to his attacks, in doing so forcing Gonzalez to go on the defensive.

Round four see McAleese continue in the same vein, often backing Gonzalez onto the ropes before letting rip with heavy flurries of left and rights to body and head. During one of the later attacks McAleese caught the Spaniard with a heavy left to the ribs, Gonzalez was clearly hurting and covered up. This encouraged McAleese to turn the pressure up another notch. McAleese was relentless playing Gonzalez’s ribs like a xylophone with wickedly fast ten-twelve punch salvos.

Round five was a cracking round for McAleese, who constantly backed up the tiring Gonzalez before letting rip with ten punch plus flurries. As the round progressed Gonzalez occasionally responded with the odd counter attack, but was often thwarted by the fast hands of the Newmarket man.

A sure fire stoppage finish looked on the cards in the final round, as again McAleese caught Gonzalez with a massive left to the ribs. However the durable Gonzalez survived the follow up salvos and went defensive to see out the final couple of minutes. The referee scored the bout 60-54 in favour of a delighted McAleese.

Following a training session, with co-trainer Brian O’Shaughnessy at the TKO Boxing Gym in London, McAleese spoke briefly on the upcoming showdown with Lowe. “Yeah, I’m fighting AA Lowe, just found that out and I don’t know a lot about him yet and I’ll look him up on the internet.

I’m doing everything I need to do in the gym to make sure I’m fit enough and that.

Sparring and everything’s going well. There’s only a couple of weeks to go and I can’t wait to go in the ring in front of the Newmarket crowd. It’s been over a year since I fought there so well due the return.

I sell a lot of tickets in Newmarket, It’s good to do a home fight, I have great fans they follow me wherever I fight so it’s nice that they don’t have to travel. It’s always a great night and it boosts my publicity in Newmarket.

Before the end of the year I want a belt. I want to be a champion, that’s my goal. It’s down to Johnny (Eames) and the team to get it on, I’m sure they will.

The fight on the thirtieth I’m just going to fight my fight, learn from it, to ready myself for a championship ten or twelve rounder in the near future.

I would have liked to have had the trilogy fight with Lee Noble for the Masters title but he’s already said he’s not having any of that again. Think he knew I had beaten him well for eight rounds and that it was a lucky punch that put me down.

Ryan Toms is fighting for the Southern Area, if he wins that I’m more than happy to fight Ryan Toms for the title. Take it off him no problem.

I really appreciate all the support from my fans, they always come out and support the local lad. They come out and never let me down and I’m sure they wont this time.”

‘Phat’ Pat McAleese versus AA Lowe headlines the Graham Earl, in association with Johnny Eames’ TKO Boxing Gym, promoted ‘Return Of The Mac’ Event at Tattersalls Sales Rooms in Newmarket, Suffolk on Saturday 30th April 2011.

Heading up the support for McAleese-Lowe headline bout sees McAleese’s TKO Boxing Gym mate Ian Bailey in his first fight of the year.

The seriously tough Super Bantamweight campaigner from Slough in Berkshire will be in action against Mansfield based Latvian Pavels Senkovs, who was in action at the weekend against Tasif Khan on the undercard of the Amir Khan-Paul McClosky WBA Super Lightweight title clash.

Also on the show is another of McAleese’s TKO Gym mates, Cheshunt’s exciting, unbeaten in seven, Welterweight Bobby Gladman, who takes on the highly experienced Matt Scriven from Nottingham.
