McDonnell to defend Euro title

Promoter Frank Maloney launches 2011 with a 13 fight card at the Doncaster Dome in Doncaster, England on January 22. Local hero Jamie McDonnell (15-2-1) heads the line up when he makes the second defence of his European bantamweight title against Belgian Stephane Jamoye (19-1). The rest of the bill is made up by hot prospects and former regional champions hoping for one last crack at the big time. Maloney said: “Jamie upset Ian Napa and Jermoe Arnould last year, but the pressure is now on him. He is fighting in his hometown and most people expect him to win and go on and challenger for world honours.” In the chief supporting contest Leeds former British super-featherweight champion Carl Johanneson (29-4) boxers Akaash Bhatia (15-1) in a crossroads fight. The winner will be in line to face British champ Gary Sykes, while the loser will have nowhere to go. Napa (19-9) suffered back-to-back British title losses against McDonnell and Stuey Hall in 2010 and must beat Mancunian southpaw Terry Flannigan (8-0) or face retirement.

Darchinyan Camp Protests

By Ray Wheatley–World of Boxing

After viewing the Abner Mares versus Vic Darchinyan bout several times, Elias Nassar, the manager of the former IBF/WBC/WBA champion is disgusted with the scoring and the referee of the SHOWTIME bantamweight bout. Nassar talks to Fightnews and gives reasons for his protest that includes YouTube links.

Nassar: I find it very difficult to accept the loss of my fighter after viewing the replay of the fight countless times. Directly after viewing the bout, I initially accepted the final result. I noted that the fight was very close and without bias I had Vic Darchinyan winning 114-112. I also initially accepted that the fight was close enough for any person who may have watched the bout to pick either fighter as the winner and the rounds could have been judged for the frequency of punches Mares was throwing or for the clean hard punches being landed by Vic.

Brewster Announces Retirement

After fourteen years in the ring, former WBO heavyweight champion Lamon Brewster, who has undergone four unsuccessful surgeries to restore sight in his left eye, has called a halt to his career in the ring. Brewster, who hasn’t had sight in his left eye since his bout against Robert Helenius believes his last opponents gloves were tainted in some fashion. “My team wasn’t allowed to inspect Helenius’s gloves or witness his hands being wrapped,” states Brewster. “I feel I was done wrong, and now with no sight there is no way I can continue my fighting career.” Brewster will now put his time into his promotional company Relentless Events, as well as other projects. Brewster earned the WBO heavyweight title in 2004 when he defeated Wladimir Klitschko; he had three successful defenses before dropping the title to Sergei Liakhovich in 2006.
