WBO rejects Kameda-McDonnell unification

The World Boxing Organization has informed WBO bantamweight champion Tomoki Kameda that he may be stripped of the title if he goes through with a clash against WBA “regular” titlist Jamie McDonnell.

The WBO World Championship Committee will not authorize your proposed bout with Jamie McDonnell as a Unification Contests, as it our position not to recognize the “secondary titlists” of organisms that opt to have more than one champion per division— as is the case with the WBA, which has Juan Carlos Payano as its so-called “Super Champion” in the Bantamweight division and Yonfrez Parejo as its “Interim” titleholder. Simply put, the WBO only recognizes the “highest” titleholder of other sanctioning organisms as legitimate champion for unification purposes (in this case Payano). In addition to this, the WBO World Championship Committee may only sanction contenders to the WBO World Championship title that are rated within the top 15 of the WBO. In this case, McDonnell does not meet the criteria of the WBO Ratings Committee and is not rated.

Finally, please note that should you decide to participate of the aforementioned bout in spite of this warning and without our authorization, this Committee may order you to show cause as to why the WBO Bantamweight Championship of the World should not be declared vacant or, in the alternative, it may declare the title vacant without further hearing you.

Luis says Mathews didn’t do enough to win

Canadian lightweight Tony “Lightning” Luis (19-3, 7 KOs) was a good sport after his controversial unanimous decision loss last weekend to Derry Mathews (38-9-2, 20 KOs) for the interim WBA Lightweight title in Matthews’ hometown of Liverpool, England, but back home on Canadian soil, Luis is changing his tune. “I can’t say I feel good,” said Luis, “this was my shot and I didn’t get the decision, but I know with my performance, I’ll get another one. Most of the press and the fans, especially in North America, know what’s up and saw the fight for what it really was. Derry did what he had to do to survive but not enough to win. He was cagey and made the fight look more competitive than it was, and that’s what a veteran is supposed to do.” (more…)

Fight Promotions inks Olympian Ischenko

Ischenko300
Fight Promotions, Inc., promoter of undefeated contenders Ievgen Khytrov and Sergey Derenchyncho, has signed 2012 Olympian Pavlo Ischenko to a long term promotional contract. Ischenko was a member of the 2012 Ukranian Olympic Team which included Gold Medalist and current WBO featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko, Gold Medalist and now undefeated cruiserweight contender Oleksandr Usyk, bronze medalist and unbeaten jr middleweight Taras Shelusteyuk, and undefeated knockout artist Khytrov, who was robbed of a medal.

Max Alperovich, president of Fight Promotions, said “This kid is only 22 years old and has devastating power in both hands that cannot be matched with anyone in the junior lightweight division. After several months of fine tuning with his American trainers, he will be on the short path to becoming a champion.”

Ischenko, who was defeated by American Jo Jo Diaz in the first round of the 2012 Olympics, will look to make his pro debut this in July.

[On a showdown with Cotto later in the year] “For me there is nothing at this time other than James Kirkland, other things are not confirmed.”

I have the whole package…I’m going to bring a lot more to the table that I need to bring. That’s what made me change trainers…I’ve been taking care of business as far as the training part.

Canelo Media Day

By Felipe Leon

Cool, calm and collected is the best way to describe former super welterweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (44-1-1, 31KO) on Monday afternoon at the House of Boxing Training Center in a suburb of San Diego, CA. The workout marked the third camp that Alvarez has held in San Diego with the first being prior to his drubbing of Alfredo “Perro” Angulo in March of last year. Serious and hardly cracking a smile unless a fan asked him for a photo, Alvarez looked all business as he was welcomed to a smaller group of amassed media than his prior to media days held in the same venue. Who was there was the on-air personalities of Mexican network Azteca who have become the new home of the twenty-four year old south of the border.

After making a second run at a Miguel Cotto fight, Alvarez had to settle for the unpredictable James “Mandingo Warrior” Kirkland (32-1, 28KO) who he will face on HBO on Saturday, May 9th, from the Minute Maid Park in Houston, Texas, the first boxing event at the home of the Astros. (more…)

Jennings ready for the fight of his life

Story & file photo by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

Bryant “BY BY” Jennings, 19-0, 10 KOs, gets his big chance to become the world heavyweight champion on Saturday night before a packed house at Madison Square Garden and a big national TV audience on HBO. The Philly-born-fast-tracker has made it to the biggest fight a boxer could ever dream of – after just five years in the pros and brief one-year amateur career prior to that.

He’s packed much experience into his fledgling ring run, but most believe that he’s still too green and too small to make a serious challenge on Saturday night. After all, Jennings’ hurdle to the belts is champion Wladimir Klitschko, 65-3, 53 KOs, a man that hasn’t lost in ten years and who has defended his array of titles 17 times during that stretch. Klitschko has almost as many defenses as Jennings has fights.

The betting odds against Jennings are as high as 16-1. However, B-Y appears supremely confident in his chances of bringing the championship back to the City of Brotherly Love. (more…)

Sadam Ali: I’m prepared

By Matt Richardson
Photo: Peter Frutkoff

Prior to his fight last November against Luis Carlos Abregu, New York welterweight Sadam Ali was somewhat of an unknown quantity. Was the former U.S. Olympian the fighter who impressed early on his career or was he the guy who struggled against lower-level competition such as in his fight against Jay Krupp in 2013? The unevenness of Ali’s career prior to the fight against Abregu led many to predict a victory for the Argentinean. But when the two 147-pounders entered the ring in Atlantic City on the televised undercard of the Sergey Kovalev-Bernard Hopkins fight, Ali knocked Abregu out in the ninth round. It was the type of performance that showed that with the right mix and temperament, Ali could be a force in boxing’s most talented weight division.

“There are so many great fighters at the weight class,” Ali said to Fightnews ahead of his return to the ring on Saturday night against Francisco Santana. The fight will be the HBO televised co-feature at Madison Square Garden prior to heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s title defense against Bryant Jennings. (more…)
