Guzman-Wake negotiations set to commence

Promoter Sampson Lewkowicz has been given the go-ahead from the IBF to begin negotiating a world-title fight between his fighter Jonathan Guzman and the promoters for Japan’s Shingo Wake. As per IBF rules for vacant championships, Lewkowicz, representing Guzman, the IBF #2 super bantamweight, and Kyoei Promotions representing IBF #1 Wake were ordered to begin negotiations immediately and have them completed no later than June 2 of this year.

Guzman (21-0, 21 KOs) is hot on the heels of an eight-round stoppage victory over Daniel Rosas last Friday in Atlantic City, in a voluntary eliminator for the #2 spot in the ratings.

Wake (20-4-2, 12 KOs) earned his number one spot by scoring a unanimous decision victory over Thailand’s Mike Tawatchai last June.

Per IBF rules, neither boxer may compete in another match until they face each other. In the event the camps cannot reach an agreement by June 2, the IBF will call for purse offers to be held to determine who will promote the bout, when and where it will be held.

DeGale on Medina spitting, rematch with Groves

By Arvin Nundloll

Fresh off defending his IBF super middleweight title, world champion James DeGale spoke to Fightnews.com® about the antics of his opponent, Rogellio “Porky” Medina, and if he would want to avenge his only defeat at the hands of George Groves.

Firstly, when made aware of Medina’s admission of spitting at DeGale during the fight, the champion was shocked but not surprised. “I made him look stupid, he was getting frustrated and he couldn’t hit me,” said DeGale.

Having brought up his only defeat in the post-fight press conference, we asked DeGale what he thought about an all British clash against George Groves in order to wipe the slate clean from his only defeat. DeGale however, saw it differently and is looking at a bigger fight against Badou Jack, although he wouldn’t rule out a rematch with Groves. (more…)

The 12th Round

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

NO, NO, NO AND NO……

It is only natural to resist any type of change. We’re used to doing things one way and one way only. It’s almost impossible to break the paradigms in the daily life, in the common structure. It’s easy to remain passive and simply do what is the usual way. The WBC was founded 53 years and it has been its decision to change and adjust and that has led to so many of today’s boxing rules, procedures, protocols and practices. Such has been a long journey but today it’s clear and certain that boxing is much safer than before.

I am using in this column some of my favorite quotes about “change,” as it reflects the wisdom of some historic figures, which inspires us to continue to implement changes in the boxing world. (more…)

Berto, Ortiz postfight comments

By Miguel Maravilla

Shortly after Andre Berto gained his revenge over “Vicious” Victor Ortiz with a stunning fourth-round knockout in a rematch of their 2011 “Fight of the Year,” the two fighters spoke to the press.

Andre Berto: It was a tremendous camp. I wanted to push him to the limit whatever the case was. I felt it was something I had to come back and get. The crazy thing is I didn’t see the punch because the sun was in my eyes. I knew I was gonna catch him sooner or later…I need that Danny Garcia fight. I want that WBC title back. I guess I got his impression since he was at ringside.

Victor Ortiz: I am not one to make excuses. I put in my work, we were doing fine, I didn’t see the uppercut and it was over. I was buzzing when I stood up. What can you do? I saw a more dangerous Berto 5 years ago, but he carries ammo. He was going to war, I was going to war. This fight was more brutal. His style and my style clashed…It would be nice to see a third fight. I don’t see why not.

DeGale retains IBF super middleweight title against Medina

IBF super middleweight champion James “Chunky” DeGale (23-1, 14 KOs) successfully defended his title against Rogelio “Porky” Medina (36-7, 30 KOs) at the DC Armory in Washington DC in a tough, grueling slugfest. Both fighters traded heavy shots throughout the fight and let the judges decide the fight, awarding it to DeGale by 115-113, 117-111 and 117-111.

DeGale started cautiously as Medina started the first round looking to make a statement that he isn’t here for the payday and would put up a fight. DeGale looked sharp as he was able to deal with Medina’s pressure and counter punch with precision. The second round saw both fighters exchange beautiful combinations, DeGale targeting the body whereas Medina successfully pinned DeGale against the ropes and hurled his own combos to the body.

The third and fourth rounds proved equally entertaining with both fighters enjoying success in tagging their opponent clean and drawing “oohs” from the crowd. The toe-to-toe action continued into the fifth and sixth rounds where both fighters landed flush uppercuts and hooks that momentarily stunned their opponent.

Both fighters again provided solid action from the mid to late rounds with DeGale starting to show signs of fatigue in the eighth round. As the fight drew to a close, DeGale began losing close rounds to Medina and stayed on the ropes longer than he had to which gave Medina a chance to unload his inside hooks against a visibly marked up DeGale. photos

In a rematch of their 2011 classic, welterweight Andre Berto (31-4, 24 KOs) got his revenge against Victor Ortiz (31-6-2, 24 KOs) with a fourth round knockout on Saturday night at the StubHub Center in Carson California. Ortiz was cut on the hairline in the first round by a head clash. Ortiz dropped Berto with a straight left hand in round two. Berto knocked down Ortiz in round four with a right uppercut, then floored him again with his follow up barrage to end it.

Ortiz won a unanimous decision in a knockdown-filled war to dethrone then-world champion Berto in their first fight.

In a clash of light heavyweight contenders, Thomas Williams Jr. (20-1, 14 KOs) scored a sensational second round KO over Edwin Rodriguez (28-2, 19 KOs). A left hook by Williams Jr. spectacularly sent Rodriguez to the canvas to end it. Time was 2:59. The bout was an exciting toe-to-toe slugfest with both fighters taking turns rocking each other. Great fight!

Pearson eventually won a unanimous decision with all three judges scoring the fight 99-92 to him. Okine may feel hard done by but will have to look back at the tape and see that he started too slow in the fight and cost him early rounds.

Mayweather Promotions super lightweight Sharif Bogere (28-1, 19 KOs) put in a convincing and one-sided performance against Samuel Akoako (17-10, 14 KOs) over 10 rounds. Bogere used his speed and agility to get inside and work his combination hooks to the body, slowing down Amoako and building on his dominance as the rounds progressed. Amaoako was content to see out the fight, fighting defensively and happy to keep a high guard that frustrated Bogere throughout the bout. All three judges scored it 100-90 in favor of Bogere.
