Povetkin chops down Wach

By Przemek Garczarczyk at ringside

WBC #1 rated heavyweight Alexander Povetkin (30-1, 22 KOs) scored a twelfth round TKO over Mariusz Wach (31-2, 17 KOs) on Wednesday night at the Basket Hall Arena in Kazan, Russia. In preparation for his mandatory challenge against WBC champion Deontay Wilder, Povetkin dominated the 6’7 Wach, although he had problems with Wach’s size and was cut over the left eye. Referee Jay Nady finally waved it off in round twelve on the advice of the ring doctor.

The WBC today approved another voluntary defense for Wilder in January, so Wilder-Povetkin likely comes in April or May.

By Przemek Garczarczyk at ringside

WBA cruiserweight champion Denis Lebedev (28-1, 21 KOs) scored a one-sided eighth round TKO over Lateef Kayode (21-1, 16 KOs) on Wednesday night at the Basket Hall Arena in Kazan, Russia. Lebedev patiently broke down Kayode, finally dropping him in round seven, then twice more in round eight. Referee Steve Smoger waved it off after Kayode took more punishment in round eight.

Afolabi shocks Chakhkiev; Durodola upsets Kudryashov; Trojanowski dethrones Cuenca

By Przemek Garczarczyk at ringside

In another huge upset, Ola Afolabi (22-4-4, 11 KOs) scored a spectacular fifth round KO over IBO cruiserweight beltholder Rakhim Chakhkiev (23-2, 18 KOs) on Wednesday night at the Basket Hall Arena in Kazan, Russia. Chakhkiev teed off on Afolabi with hellacious punches early, but started running out of gas. Afolabi clearly dropped Chakhkiev in round five, but the ref called it a slip. Afolabi then knocked Chakhkiev out cold.

In a massive upset, cruiserweight Olanrewaju Durodola (23-2, 20 KOs) stopped previously unbeaten WBC #2/WBA #4/WBO #5/IBF #8 Dmitry Kudryashov (18-1, 18 KOs) in round two. A barrage of shots from Durodola prompted a stoppage from referee Jay Nady.

Edward Trojanowski (23-0, 20 KOs) dethroned IBF jr welterweight champion Cesar Cuenca (48-1, 2 KOs) by bizarre sixth round TKO. After both fighters tumbled to the canvas, Cuenca didn’t make a move to continue and the bout was waved off by referee David Fields. Up to that point, it was a tactical, uneventful fight. Afterward, Cuenca’s corner was furious and tried to raise the referee’s hand. Cuenca failed to match Mayweather and Marciano at 49-0.

Unbeaten light heavyweight Dmitry Bivol (5-0, 5 KOs) stopped Junior Jackson (19-5, 17 KOs) in round four. Bivol dropped Junior in round two and finished him with another knockdown in round four.

Unbeaten welterweight Viskhan Murzabekov (12-0, 6 KOs) scored a third round KO over Solomon Bogere (13-3-2, 10 KOs). Murzabekov dropped Bogere at the end of round two, and three times in round three to end it.

WBC 53rd convention report: Day 3 – Mandatory Defenses and More

By Boxing Bob Newman
Photos: Bob Newman/Alma Montiel

Day three of the WBC 53rd annual convention in Kunming, China was largely taken up by the mandatory defenses meeting. Each weight class was discussed, including some complex situations, among the board and the representatives of either the champions or potential mandatory challengers. It should be noted that being ranked #1 in a division does not guarantee mandatory challenger status. According to the WBC rules, a final eliminator must be fought between the two highest available contenders to determine the mandatory challenger to the title. There were some instances however, where the board voted and mandatory status was granted to long time #1 rated contenders. The list of champions, their mandatory defense status and challenger situations follows:

Heavyweight: Deontay Wilder
Mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin will take on Marius Wach tonight in Russia in defense of his WBC Silver title. If Povetkin wins, he will be ready sometime after April or May to challenge Wilder. Wilder has been granted a voluntary defense tentatively scheduled for January 16th.

Cruiserweight: Grigory Drozd
Mandatory challenger Ilunga Makabu has been waiting for his shot to materialize. The WBC has stated it will assist in making the proposed March 2016 fight come to fruition.

Light Heavyweight: Adonis Stevenson
At the last convention in Las Vegas (December 2014), the WBC anointed WBO/IBF/WBA champion Sergey Kovalev as the mandatory challenger to Stevenson. Based on this being the most anticipated fight in the light heavyweight division for some time and a fight sure to satisfy the fans, this unique decision was made. The fight, up to now has failed to materialize. Representatives for both camps are present at this convention and assured the WBC that negotiations are still in ongoing to make the fight happen. However, a final eliminator between Eleider Alvarez and Isaac Chilemba for the mandatory status, as well as the NABF and Silver championship has been set for November 28. After that fight has resolved, a determination will be made based on the status of the Kovalev-Stevenson negotiations. (more…)

Joel Diaz promises to make Provodnikov champ again

There was a moment, a few weeks ago, when trainer Joel Diaz knew he had made the right move in agreeing to coach former junior-welterweight champion Ruslan Provodnikov. The likeable Russian, who knows only a smattering of English, raised his arms in the gym and bellowed, “I am champion! I am champion!”

Diaz called him over. “Ruslan, I promise I will make you champion again – if you listen.”

“Coach,” said Provodnikov, “I will listen. I will sleep on the floor of the gym if I have to. I’ll do whatever it takes.”

Boxer and trainer are now in Monte Carlo preparing to fight unbeaten Mexican Jesus Alvarez Rodriguez, who is officially 13-0, but claims to be 20-0, on the Golden Gloves tournament headliner on Saturday. (more…)

WBC 53rd convention report: Day 2

By Boxing Bob Newman

Day two of the 53rd WBC convention in Kunming, China was chock full of meetings, events and outings. Day two of the ring officials seminar (referees), ratings committee meeting, World Boxing Cares outing, a live fight card and a cultural show in the evening.

While the ratings committee got underway at 9:30 a.m. in the Yunnan Grand Hall, the ring officials seminar continued its second day in the Chamboard room. This report will combine yesterday’s ring officials seminar concerning judges as well.

Ring officials chairman Hubert Minn presided over the two sessions. Esteemed judges Steve Morrow and Barry Lindenman delivered informative if not perfunctory messages in each of their talks. Morrow’s talk centered on the ethics a judge must practice to remain above reproach. It may sound basic, but neutrality and impartiality is paramount to a judge’s integrity and ethical practice. Practices such as posing for photos with fighters, dining with the promoter, accepting gifts, collecting autographs of fighters, discussing assignments, lobbying for assignments and other such actions or unethical and can be seen as conflict of interest on the judge’s behalf.

Ceddy McGrady passes

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

The Australian boxing community is in mourning after hearing the news that Aboriginal boxer Ceddy McGrady has sadly passed away at the age of 64 years on Saturday after suffering a heart attack in Newcastle. Ceddy made his professional debut on June 4, 1969 under the guidance of respected boxing trainer, Bernie Hall, when he boxed four round draw against Rodney Roberts at the South Sydney Leagues club, Sydney, NSW, Australia. Ceddy’s boxing career would see him in 128 fights in a 21-year period starting as a featherweight in 1969 but boxing as high as middleweight poundage in 1981. He boxed the cream of the crop in all the divisions taking former Aussie champion Wally Carr the distance in 1972 and 1973. In 1975 highly regarded Steve Dennis was taken the eight round distance.

Lomachenko: Getting Salido back into the ring would be something I would like to see

Two-time Ukrainian Olympic gold medalist and reigning World Boxing Organization (WBO) featherweight world champion Vasyl Lomachenko (4-1, 2 KOs) kicked off Fight Week today with a training camp media workout at the Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Oxnard, Calif. Lomachenko will defend his title on Saturday night against WBO #7 world-rated contender Romulo Koasicha (24-4,14 KOs), of San Luis Potosi, Mexico.

Here is what Lomachenko and his manager Egis Klimas had to say:

Vasyl Lomachenko: “I want to bring something new to boxing. I want to be known to fans and appreciated as a ‘boxer-painter’ in regards to speed, footwork, punching power — an art form inside the ring. I have looked at videos of many great champions like Muhammad Ali, Sugar Ray Robinson and Joe Frazier who each had special qualities. I never say one particular fighter is the best ever because each has a special unique style of fighting. Every fight has challenges. I looked at some video of my opponent who fought Lee Selby. In the middle of that fight, my opponent did a transition and fought with a different type of style against Selby. These are the situations you must deal with on the night of a fight.

“Who would I like to fight some day? Getting Salido back into the ring would be something I would like to see.” Lomachenko, suffered his only loss to Salido via split decision in his second pro fight after Salido came in overweight. (more…)

IBF flyweight champion Amnat Ruenroeng has the skills to defeat WBC flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez according to Ruenroeng’s manager Jimmy Chaichotchuang, who wants to give Gonzalez the opportunity to challenge Ruenroeng and determine who is the best 112-pound boxer on the planet.

“I would like to congratulate WBC flyweight champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez who was impressive in defeating Brian Viloria,” Chaichotchuang said. “I did read the article and was surprised that Gonzalez seems to be confident he can beat Ruenreong. Gonzalez was a great boxer at mini-flyweight and junior flyweight but not as a flyweight. Ruenroeng would have no problem to fight Gonzalez anywhere in the world. Ruenreong beat Kazuto Ioka in Japan and Zou Shiming in Macau, China. He will be happy to give Gonzalez his first loss of his boxing career. We should make a fight happen in 2016.

As he nears his Saturday, Nov. 14 showdown against WBC featherweight world champion Gary Russell Jr. (26-1, 15 KOs), featherweight challenger Oscar Escandón (24-2, 16 KOs) is primed and ready for the challenge. The 12-round Showtime-televised takes place at the Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas. While working out in Las Vegas with Coach Ruben Guerrero, Escandón gave his thoughts on training camp, fighting Gary Russell Jr., and his quest to become a world champion.

“Gary Russell Jr. is a very skilled fighter but he doesn’t know what it’s like to be in a rugged fight,” said Escandon. “Everyone knows I come to fight and Russell is going to find out firsthand what it’s like to be in a war. He better be ready to take some lumps…Ruben and I have been working great together. His knowledge of fighting southpaws is excellent and we have a great game plan going into this fight. Everyone can expect to see me throw a lot of punches…becoming a world champion is something I’ve wanted my whole life. I’ve been close a couple of times. In those fights I made the mistake of leaving the decision in the judges’ hands. This time around, I’m going for the knockout, to assure myself victory.”

Frampton-Quigg February unification set

Carl Frampton and Scott Quigg will meet for the IBF and WBA world super-bantamweight titles at the Manchester Arena on February 27, 2016. The eagerly anticipated showdown between the British rivals was announced live on Sky Sports News this afternoon with the pair putting titles, unbeaten records and bragging rights on the line in the blockbuster. Frampton took the IBF crown from Kiko Martinez last September and has defended the title twice this year, stopping Chris Avalos in Belfast in February before an exciting debut on US soil in May where he climbed off the canvas twice in the opening round to defeat Alejandro Gonzalez Jr.

Quigg’s reign as WBA champion began in October 2013 and the 27-year-old has racked up five successful defenses in that time, stopping Martinez in his last outing in Manchester in July to follow wins over Diego Silva, Tshifhiwa Munyai, Stephane Jamoye and Hidenori Otake. (more…)

WBA#3 Hosono, Ex-Champ Shimoda to collide in December

By Joe Koizumi

Should you get tired of long Christmas holidays, you may come to Japan to watch multiple title bouts in the end of the year. WBA#3/WBO#6 featherweight Satoshi “Bazooka” Hosono (29-2-1, 20 KOs) will risk his Japanese 126-pound belt against former WBA ruler Akifumi Shimoda (30-4-2, 13 KOs) beneath world title twinbill of Naoya Inoue and Akira Yaegashi in Tokyo, Japan, on December 29. This is a good matchup to be welcomed by our hardcore aficionados. Having failed to win the WBA belt three times, Hosono is still gunning to acquire a world throne in his fourth crack at the championship. The southpaw speedster Shimoda, who moved up to the feather category two years ago, made a comeback after his upset KO defeat by Filipino Melvin Sonsona in Macao in February of the previous year, and decked a couple of fine victories to show his improvement. Also, on the same show, Naoya’s younger brother, WBC#7 Takuma Inoue (5-0, 1 KO), 19, will make his initial defense of the OPBF super-fly belt against Filipino Rene Ducquel (15-5-1, 5 KOs) over twelve rounds.
