WBC breaks with EPBC

The WBC has confirmed the cessation of its relationship with the Eurasian Pacific Boxing Council effective immediately. The WBC began its relationship with the EPBC in January 2014 in search of having an affiliated championship to attend to the region of China and Russian-block countries. During this 3-year period many goals were not accomplished and the WBC has unanimously approved the closing of relations with the EPBC and its affiliation to the WBC due to the lack of positive results, with many fights taking place of a very low level of quality, fighters from outside the geographical region, and consequently providing fights which are confusing to the public.

The best fights in boxing are, unfortunately, not always the same fights fans are treated to in the ring. But in 2017 boxing has been on an entertaining run matching the best fighters in a series of weight classes.

Just since January we saw fights featuring two of the best super middleweights (James DeGale and Badou Jack), two of the best junior featherweights (Leo Santa Cruz and Carl Frampton) and two of the best welterweights in the world (Keith Thurman and Danny Garcia).

That streak will continue this Saturday at Madison Square Garden in New York City when unified middleweight champion Gennady “GGG” Golovkin takes on WBA title-holder Danny Jacobs in a highly anticipated 160-pound showdown (HBO PPV/9 PM ET).

“This will be an action-packed fight, however long it lasts. From one to 12 rounds,” Jacobs (32-1, 29 KO’s) said on Monday afternoon at the Theater at the Garden during the final press conference for the fight. (more…)

WBA announces Fair Boxing anti-doping program, random drug testing now required

On Monday, the World Boxing Association officially launched its “Fair Boxing” program, which will combat the use of prohibited substances in boxing. The announcement was made at a press conference in Panama City, Panama. Fair Boxing is organized by the WBA in conjunction with the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) and will integrate all boxers in the WBA world rankings. The program actually kicked off Saturday in the fight between Demetrius Andrade and Jack Culcay for the WBA super welterweight crown.

“This is made possible by the WBA Medical Committee, who met in Panama to make Fair Boxing a reality,” said WBA President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza. “This is also the product of a meeting with Mauricio Sulaiman (President of the World Boxing Council) in which we talked how pre-competition anti-doping testing is much more important than post-fight testing, because there are substances that aren’t detected afterward.” (more…)

Darchinyan destroys Hammarach in round one

By Brett Bonetti at ringside

Nine-time world champion Vic “The Raging Bull” Darchinyan (43-9-1, 32 KO’s) made quick work of Pakpoom Hammarach (14-15, 8 KO’s) with a huge first round KO in the main event of Dragon Fire Promotions Thunderdome XIX at Metro City in Perth Australia. Darchinyan stalked Hammarach throughout the opening round and caught him with a beautiful uppercut with just one second left in the round to end the fight.

Photo: Kim Johnson/Hitman Photography

It was Darchinyan’s last fight on Australian soil, and he said this wasn’t a fight for money, it was a fight to see if he still had the hunger and desire to go on with his illustrious career.

There was talk that “The Raging Bull” retired after his loss to Serio Frias last July, but he said he just needed some time off to re-evaluate his career to grasp if he has a final run in him before retiring. After this win, Darchinyan will look at options for a fight with former IBF featherweight champion Evgeny Gradovich in Russia, or explore the opportunity to face former two-weight world champion Carl Frampton in England.

Fujioka wins her fourth world belt by stopping Mexican Millan

Japanese 41-year-young legend Naoko Fujioka (16-2, 7 KOs), impressively acquired her fourth world belt when she seized the vacant WBA female flyweight title by a dramatic TKO victory over game and gallant Mexican Isabel Millan (18-3-1, 8 KOs), 111.25, WBF titlist, at 0:21 of the tenth and final round on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. Prior to the stoppage Fujioka was widely leading on points: Pinit Prayadsab and Prommase Chakshuraksha (both Thailand) both 89-81, and Takeo Harada (Japan) 88-82, all for Naoko. The referee was Takeshi Shimakawa, an 82-year-young Japanese veteran.

Fast and ferocious, Fujioka kept boring in against the taller Mexican, 35, by four inches and connected with roundhouse lefts and rights. It was Naoko that sent Isabel on the seats of trunks with a looping left hook midway in round two. Millan struggled to the feet and gamely resumed fighting though absorbing Fujioka’s furious combinations—with the bell coming to her rescue. (more…)

Beterbiev camp explains cancelled Beterbiev-Barrera IBF title eliminator

Groupe Yvon Michel (GYM) president Yvon Michel has responded accordingly to allegations recently made in the media by Sullivan Barrera about GYM and its undefeated world light heavyweight contender Artur Beterbiev regarding the recently cancelled Beterbiev-Barrera International Boxing Federation (IBF) light heavyweight title eliminator.

“Despite Barrera’s claims,” Michel insisted, “he didn’t sign a contract because he never intended for fight Artur. In Team Barrera’s letter, he lied and showed his ignorance trying to distract from the facts.

“For the conclusion of this unfortunate saga, the IBF has informed me that it has ruled to ban Barrera from its world rankings, or from participating in one of its sanctioned fights, for the next six months. I’ve also been informed that, if nobody in the IBF top 10 is available and agrees to fight Artur, the IBF will declare him as its #1 mandatory challenger for the winner of the Ward-Kovalev rematch. Artur will be back in the ring in late April, early May. The mandatory defense for the Ward-Kovalev II winner, or Ward if that fight doesn’t happen, is due in September.” (more…)

The 12th Round

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman´s son

The way boxing operates is so vastly different from any other sport. Boxing is regulated by Government institutions of each country, in most cases, each state of the country and even to the extent of having regulations by each city of each state of each country. This must be due to the nature of the sport, a contact sport, which in the early years was brutal and inhuman, there were many deaths every year in the sport, abuse of power, anarchy and total control by a few who acted as promoters and regulators.

The WBC as a governing body sanctioning fights all over the world works each event in conjunction with the Local Boxing Commission whenever a WBC title is contested. The WBC respects the local commission authority and jurisdiction and always tries its best effort to have as much mutual reciprocity, respect and mutual agreements. (more…)

Golovkin Haters Interview, Part 2

By Przemek Garczarczyk

No softball questions here. In this adversarial Q&A, K2 Managing Director Tom Loeffler addresses the harshest social media criticisms regarding WBC/WBA/IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin’s career. From Daniel Jacobs to Canelo Alvarez to accusations of greed, underhanded negotiating and hiding PPV numbers, it’s all here.

“Let’s see: since our first GGG haters interview two years ago, Gennady sold out Madison Square Garden, The Forum in Los Angeles, sold out O2 Arena in London and became the most dominant champ in the sport of boxing with 23 knockouts in the row. GGG became one of the most marketable stars in boxing, especially internationally, with his fights being shown in more than 100 countries worldwide. Gennady brought back the definition of true world champion. Not much to dislike, is it? Four of his former opponents, victims of GGG’s knockout power, were already headlining main events (Stevens-Lemieux) or will be soon (Murray-Rosado) on two continents… but I’m ready for the haters next round!” said Loeffler as fight week kicks off for the middleweight unification between Golovkin and WBA regular champ Danny Jacobs, live on Saturday from Madison Square Garden on HBO PPV.

Tyrone Brunson wins split decision

Tyrone Brunson won a 8-round split decision over Bandon Quarles in the main event of a 8-bout card in front of a packed house at the SugarHouse Casino. It was a action filled fight that saw both guys be the aggressor at different stages of the fight. Brunson showed a more versatile side of him, that many boxing fans haven;t seen in years from him. One which differed from the prodigious knockout puncher that Brunson was known for when he knocked out the 1st 19 fighters he faced in the 1st round. This Brunson used his legs to set up punches off of the jab, which he also landed several times with power behind that stick. Quarles was very game as he had his moments and landed hard shots that kept Brunson honest. Brunson landed more and harder, and he came out with the victory by scores of 78-74 and 77-75. Quarles took a card at 77-75. Brunson of Philadelphia is now 24-6-2. Quarles of Alexandria, Virginia is 18-4-1. (more…)

A clash of big-punching middleweight contenders that figured to be an all-out war, turned out to be all that and more. Former IBF world champion David Lemieux (37-3, 33 KOs) scored a spectacular third round KO over Curtis “The Cerebral Assassin” Stevens (29-6, 21 KOs) on Saturday night at the Turning Stone Resort & Casino in Verona, NY. Both traded bombs the entire way and both had their moments. Lemieux ended matters with a crushing left hook in round three that put Stevens on the deck out cold. Time was 1:59.

“I told you what I was going to do tonight,” said Lemieux. “What I saw was a ‘check mate.’ The punch was made with perfect landing. I am in great shape, and I prepared myself for him. He is physically strong but nothing special. Stevens is a solid fighter, and we were successful. I wish him the best, and I hope he is OK.”

Smith was conscious when taken from the ring on a stretcher to a local hospital for observation.

Richard Commey is back on title track after defeating Belgian based Tunesian Hedi Slimani by unanimous decision at the Bukom Boxing arena of Accra, Ghana in front of both, the actual and former, Presidents of the country. Many personalities as Azumah Nelson, Alfred Kotey and Ike “Bazouka” Quartey were in attendance.
It was hard fought from the beginning and both had their moments throughout the fight with local star Commey having the edge in most of the rounds. Commey suffered a cut above the left eye in round 6. Commey had a big round 7 a round in which Simani was cut below the left eye. Both boxers went toe to toe in the last round and it was scored 116-112, 116-112 and 117-111. Commey won the vacant WBC Intl Silver lightweight.

Most impressive was Duke Micah who faced Mexican Jonathan Aquilar. The visitor did well until his corner pulled him out after round 8 with a injured left arm. Micah won the vacant WBC Intl bantamweight title.

Fredrick Lawson was lucky to earn the decision against Jamaican Sakima Mullings who almost pulled of an upset. Lawson was too cautious and let the initiative too much to the visitor who was stealing the rounds with his activity. It was scored 116-113, 114-114 and a ridiculous wide 119-109. Lawson won the vacant WBC Intl Silver welterweight title.

A rusty Gamboa was in command most of the time, although he never had Alvarado in any sewrious trouble. In fact, the only knockdown of the fight was a flash knockdown scored by Alvarado in the final stanza. Scores were 97-92, 97-92, 97-93.

In the most exciting off-TV Fight of the night, Montreal’s Yves Ulysse, Jr. pressured fellow undefeated prospect Zachary Ochoa of Brooklyn, NY, enrout to a brutal stoppage at the mercy of Ochoa’s corner at the end of the seventh. Ulysse, Jr. came into the fight as he left the weigh in face off, all smiles.
