WBC vows support for Navarrete

By Nick Giongco

By way of the Jose Sulaiman boxers’ fund, the World Boxing Council (WBC) has expressed its desire to lend a helping hand to former super-featherweight champion Rolando Navarrete, who is living a life of squalor in General Santos City. Fightnews and Manila Bulletin came out with a story about the sad and sorry tale of the now 57-year-old Navarrete last week and his troubles reached the Mexico City headquarters of current WBC big boss Mauricio Sulaiman, the successor of the late Don Jose, the long-time president of the world’s premier boxing body.

Mauricio, according to Mexican fight scribe Gabriel Cordero, wants Navarrete to be included on the list of destitute fighters who will be given financial assistance by the WBC. All Navarrete has to do is fill up an application form that will be submitted to the WBC and he even requested this writer to track down Navarrete in General Santos City. (more…)

Poor Boys Pro Boxing and Jim ‘Smitty’ Smith put on a nice show for the NAIOP’s fundraiser (Commercial Real Estate Development Association) last Thursday at the Infinity Sports Complex in Denver. The proceeds go to Denver Active 20/30 Children’s Foundation. NAIOP also ponied up for a nice looking ‘championship’ belt to be awarded to the winner of the main event. Super-featherweights Jose Morales and Helario Medina waged a five round war in the main event with neither man willing to give in and wanting to be crowned the NAIOP champion.

Has Golovkin eclipsed Mayweather as #1 pound for pound?

WBC, WBA welterweight and super welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather has ruled the pound for pound list for many years, but with 18 straight KOs and 12 world title defenses, maybe it’s time to give P4P consideration to WBA/IBO/WBC (interim) middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin.

Record: Both are undefeated with Floyd at 47-0, 26 KOs, GGG at 31-0, 28 KOs

Style: Both dominate their opponents. Floyd with speed and boxing skills, GGG with concussive punches.

Level of opposition: Floyd has fought a higher level of opposition over the course of his career, but neither fighter can be said to have cleaned out their division. Floyd has seemingly avoided a showdown with Manny Pacquiao, while GGG has yet unify with any of the other middleweight champions. (more…)

Han, Rodriguez win on Golovkin-Rubio undercard

By Rocky Morales at ringside

Edwin “La Bomba” Rodriguez (25-1, 16KO) won a unanimous decision against Azea Augustama (17-2, 9KO) on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. . It was a lackluster fight throughout that featured little action and no noticeable applause for the East Coast victor as the decision was announced despite his solicitations for an applause at each ring post. Judges scored the 10 round light heavyweight bout 100-90, 99-91 and 100-90 in favor of Rodriguez.

El Paso middleweight Abie Han (23-1, 14KO) won a majority decision victory over Marcos Reyes (33-2, 24KO) in a ten round middleweight bout. Han seemed to win the early rounds before Reyes picked up the pace. Han was in serious trouble and down in the eighth round and nearly stopped but would get up and even go on to win the final round. The fight started slowly but progressively picked up in the middle rounds only to fizzle out again at the end. Reyes was deducted a point for hitting after the bell in the ninth round. Judges scored the bout 97-91, 97-91 and 94-94 in favor of Han. (more…)

Marco Antonio “Veneno” Rubio wants to leave behind the incident at yesterday’s weigh-in and focus on tonight’s fight, which can still catapult him to stardom even though he will no longer be a world champion. Now a huge betting underdog, Rubio states, “all that just motivates me. That the fans see me for dead drives me to give maximum effort and try with all my heart to go for the victory.”

“I’ve seen that many people don’t believe in me, and even make mockery that I will destroyed in the ring. Before anything I want to say to all those people that the object of this sport is to hurt the opponent and I’m willing to give my life in this fight in order to come out with my hand raised. Although Golovkin is a warrior, I have no fear of what’s going to happen because I have the power to answer him on an equal footing.”

On the subject of not making weight, Rubio stated “it’s not a lack of professionalism, or irresponsibility. In truth I’m very embarrassed with all the people who believe in me. I did everything I could to make the weight of the division, although I prefer this to coming in diminished to a fight as complicated as I expect with Golovkin.

“Right now my mind is focused on the fight. On Monday I’ll think about whether I’ll move up a division or if we’ll plan a stricter diet with a nutritionist. At this weight I’m not in low spirits, on the contrary it motivates me to give my best to reverse this situation.”

Navarrete lives a life of squalor

By Nick Giongco

GENERAL SANTOS CITY—The life of Rolando Navarrete, once the toast of Philippine boxing, is in a total mess. Navarrete, now 57, says he makes both ends meet working at the city’s fish port but wouldn’t say how. “Dumidiskarte lang, (I am just being resourceful),” said Navarrete during a chance encounter with the ex-WBC super-featherweight king.

Navarrete has been retired from the sport for over 20 years now and relies heavily on a government monthly assistance worth P2,000 ($45) so he could bring food to the table.

But he no longer has a wife and takes care of two kids, both fighters, but with no solid promotional connections.

On this particular day, Navarrete stood just outside the main door where Manny Pacquiao would come out, hoping that the world welterweight titlist would see him and even slip in a few bills. (more…)

Lawsuit: Rahman Bros say Floyd lied to the Nevada Commission

Hasim Rahman Jr. and his brother Sharif Rahman have filed a lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather, Mayweather Promotions, Mayweather Boxing Club and Showtime. Sharif Rahman alleges that he was never told his sparring session with Donovon Cameron would be recorded for “Showtime All Access” and he was forced to fight 5/6/7 minute rounds despite a request to fight 3 minute rounds.

Hasim Rahman Jr. maintains his fight with Cameron went 31 minutes straight with no break and he was later informed there large amounts of money wagered.

The lawsuit further states that Mayweather “misrepresented facts” while testifying on front of the NSAC and falsely testified that the 31-minute fight depicted on “Showtime All Access” didn’t happen.
