IBF/WBC/WBA/WBO Summit in AC

Several months ago, IBF President Marian Muhammad and Larry Hazzard, IBF Chairman of Officials Supervision, Training & Development, organized a series of meetings with the WBC, WBA and WBO in an attempt to bring about greater levels of standardization in the sport of boxing. The first meeting took place in Mexico, the second meeting was in Texas during the weekend of the Clottey/Pacquiao bout and the four sanctioning organizations will be meeting tomorrow in Atlantic City at Bally’s Hotel Casino. Tomorrow’s meeting will include representatives from the recently formed Boxing Promoter’s Association. “We have a very aggressive agenda designed to bring about some much needed initiatives in our sport and we are very hopeful that a greater working relationship will eventually be fostered with the various boxing commissions in the US,” said Hazzard.

Bute-Miranda presser quotes

“It’s hard to change the style you used during your whole career in nine short months.

The IBF super middleweight champion also stated, in English: “I’m very happy that HBO has come to Montreal and I’m hoping that they will stay with me for the future.” (more…)

Full Report: Green-Siaca

By Craig Watt at ringside

Australian Danny Green (29-3, 26 KO’s) successfully defended his IBO cruiserweight title last night at Challenge Stadium, Perth when he stopped Puerto Rican challenger Manny Siaca (22-7, 19 KO’s) inside three rounds. The stoppage came from referee Jack Rees at 1.55 of the third round after Siaca was dropped for the second time in the bout. The fight was Green’s third defense of the title and he won in impressive fashion showing power in his right hand dropping Siaca in the second and then in the third with powerful right hooks to the temple.

Green stated after the fight, “I was disappointed the fight was so short as I wanted to punish him for twelve rounds but he felt the power of my right hand and once that happens then no one can live with my power.” (more…)

Zbik fires back

"I'll show Spada his place"

Eroll Popova

During a public training session earlier this week, WBC interim middleweight champion Sebastian Zbik and #2 contender Domenico Spada exchanged some heated words. “He wanted to tell me he’s winning the fight and the belt is his,” explained Zbik. “But it was very difficult to understand him and I had to correct his English once. In the end he can say what he wants. We’ll see on Saturday what his words are worth. Then I’ll show him his place. That he made a scene is a sign of insecurity.”

They collide Saturday in what should be a spirited grudge rematch on Universum’s big world title twinbill in Magdeburg. WBO super middleweight champion Robert Stieglitz defends against unbeaten Edward “Eddy” Gutknecht in the other world title matchup. (more…)

Interview: Wladimir Klitschko

Pavel Terehov/klitschko.com

By David Finger

Judging from HBO’s recent treatment of the heavyweight division, you’d think boxing’s glamor division has been in a serious slump for several years, despite the fact that the reigning IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (54-3, 48 KOs) is so clearly a class above almost every contender in the division. Since winning the IBF title back in 2006 from Chris Byrd, he has arguably not lost a single round against the eight fighters he’s defended his title against, and even his harshest critics admit that he could easily continue that streak of dominance for several more years.
