    Default KJ Noons drops decision in boxing

    from mmajunkie.com


    CINCINNATI - Former EliteXC champ K.J. Noons' stumbled in his return to boxing on Saturday when he suffered a unanimous-decision loss to James Countryman at TKO Boxing's "3 The Hard Way" event at U.S. Bank Arena in Cincinnati.

    Noons (8-2) suffered a unanimous-decision loss to fellow middleweight Countryman (14-1) in a six-round undercard bout.

    The well-matched fight proved one of the top bouts from the six-fight card, though Noons suffered losing scores of losing scores of 59-55, 58-56 and 58-56 while snapping a four-fight win streak.

    The bout was Noons' first boxing match since his unanimous-decision win over Alejandro Bogarin (8-7-3) in November.

    Noons was carrying a three-fight MMA win streak, which included a victory over Nick Diaz for the first-ever EliteXC lightweight title, when a conflict with ProElite management resulted in the former EliteXC 160-pound champion being stripped of the title in late 2008. He then announced his intentions of returning to boxing, where he turned pro in 2004.

    If medically cleared, Noons is expected to box Matt Vanda (39-9) on April 18 in Minneapolis.

    However, in a recent interview with MMAjunkie.com (UFC blog for UFC news, UFC rumors, fighter interviews and event previews/recaps | MMAjunkie.com), Noons said he's not ruling out a return to MMA.

    "I would love to be back in MMA and give the fans some good fights," Noons said. "I've already set my goals on the boxing. I'm taking these fights (with Countryman and Vanda), and then eventually down the road – as long as I can get my boxing up to par with my MMA – I would love to come back."

    And while he's open to the idea of fighting for Strikeforce, which recently acquired most of the top stars from the now-defunct EliteXC organization, he's not making any definite plans.

    "I can see myself in any organization," said Noons, who's been working with famed boxing trainer Freddie Roach. "I think Strikeforce is a great organization. (Strikeforce founder and CEO) Scott Coker is a great guy. I used to fight for him when I was 16 (years old), when he first started doing Strikeforce. I used to fight on his kickboxing cards.

    "So I have a great relationship with him, but I want to keep my relationship open with everybody. I can see myself fighting anywhere. I'm just concentrating on the boxing right now, and if anything (in MMA) comes up that makes sense, I definitely want
    to do it."

    So much for that.

    This is about as good an example as you'll get that being a good MMA striker does not equate to being a good boxer.

    See you back in MMA in a few months with your tail between your legs KJ!

    Good for him. IMO he has no place in boxing or MMA, being a champ and then turning down fights to the #1 contender, and then being scared and quiting the sport and droping your belt. What a chump.
    Fedor Emelianenko is the Greatest P4P MMA fighter to ever walk the earth, hands down.

    Did anybody actually read the article, or just the thread title? Lol, this loss snaps a 4 fight win streak. His last boxing match was in november 2008, in which he won. Apart from that, I get the whole love/hate relationship between a few fans and KJ. I get it.

    Can't win them all. Nobody can. Real sports isn't scripted. This isn't WWF. That's the truth. And that's real life.

    Dude, no offense but I read your post twice and I still have absolutely no clue what your point was. Or if you even had one.

    And yes, I "actually read the article", is there going to be a quiz?

    If I can break the code, I believe he means people shouldn't give him shit because it wasn't an MMA fight, just boxing.

    That was the point. Also, Didn't think anybody would get it, with the exception of you, of course. And yes, it is the WWE, actually, lol.

    Not everybody read the article, only the thread title. That's quite clear. Which is fair, seeing a few hate KJ with a passion. Understandable.
