Two decisions changed in Mexico

By Karl Freitag

Bad night for official scorers last Saturday in Mexico. Not only did ringside officials blow the decision in the WBC Youth bantamweight title fight between Tomoki Kameda and Stephane Jamoye Saturday night in Mazatlan (originally announced as a draw, then amended an hour later to a win for Kameda) as previously reported, officials also botched the result of Saturday’s IBF featherweight eliminator between Franky Leal and Miguel “Ranita” Gonzzlez in Mexicali. Despite suffering two knockdowns in the first round, hometown favorite Leal was announced as controversial a split decision winner. That result was later changed to a draw.

T Kameda WBC Youth champ

On Saturday, August 28, WBC Youth bantamweight champion Stephane Jamoye, from Belgium, fought Tomoki Kameda, from Japan, in Mazatlan, Mexico. The fight was very close and exciting.

The WBC now confirms Tomoki Kameda as the new Youth world bantamweight champion. “I am hereby ordering a rematch between Tomoki Kameda and Stephane Jamoye, as this fight was very close and the former champion deserves to be given another opportunity just as he did last Saturday night,” said WBC President Jose Sulaiman.

Giovanni Segura KO8 Ivan Calderon

By Graham Houston

The long unbeaten run of Ivan Calderon had to end sometime, and as often happens when a long-reigning champion loses, the finish was brutal and dramatic.

After 19 consecutive title bouts in two weight classes without a defeat, Calderon’s skills and great experience just weren’t enough to overcome the relentless pressure and brutal body attack of the implacable aggressor from Mexico. (more…)
