WBC declares war on fake belts

The World Boxing Council has launched a concerted legal plan of action, in order to eradicate the sale of fake memorabilia including unauthorized WBC Championship belts. This is after the WBC detected these products being sold in several places on the Internet, mainly in Pakistan and Thailand.

“The WBC World Championship Belts have never been, nor will ever be for sale!,” said WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman. “They are sacred for us. The belts are icons and the WBC will use all available legal procedures to stop unauthorized sales, including pirated and illegal products.”

Karaxha lost a close decision to Bauwens and the fight against El Hamwi is a rematch of their Sept 2015 fight closely won by Karaxha. Frenchman El Hamwi is Belgian licensed and eager to avenge this defeat and to win the Belgian 140lbs title. In his last fight he lost for the Belgian 147lbs title to Jessy Petit-Jean.

BJ Saunders injured, fight postponed to Nov 26

Queensberry Promotions received news today that WBO World Middleweight Champion, Billy Joe Saunders had suffered a muscle injury and would be unable to defend against Artur Akavov on 22nd October at Cardiff’s Motorpoint Arena. Unfortunately, on the same day British Super-Welterweight Champion, Liam Williams also suffered an injury in sparring that prevents him from defending his British title against Ahmet Patterson on the same bill.

Consequently, postponement was the only option to maintain the strength of the card, and as such the event will now take place on Saturday 26th November at the same venue.

Promoter Frank Warren said: “We have obviously not had a lot of luck with this event, first of all being let down by Chris Eubank Jnr and now the two main fights on a card falling out on the same day. We have no choice but to postpone the card to a month later so everyone is given time to recover. (more…)

Adrien Broner’s close friends are worried he may kill himself — and have contacted police to check in on the boxer after he went to social media and strongly implied he was going to take his own life. Broner began posting early Wednesday morning — apologizing to his family and friends and saying, “I don’t want to be here no more this s**t too much.”

He then posted a photo of a handgun inside of a vehicle and wrote, “I’m going home I love y’all.”

Tyson Fury voluntarily vacates world titles

Tyson Fury has this evening announced that he has voluntarily vacated his WBO, WBA and IBO World Heavyweight titles with immediate effect to fully focus on his medical treatment and recovery.

Tyson defeated the then linear world champion Wladimir Klitschko in Germany last November in one of the biggest ever upsets in sporting history to claim the unified world titles. However, due to a serious medical condition, Tyson was forced to withdraw from defending his titles against Klitschko in the rematch scheduled for October 29th in Manchester.

Tyson values the rich and treasured history of the heavyweight division which has had countless legendary champions and believes that the titles should be kept active. Therefore out of respect for the governing bodies, the sport of boxing and the heavyweight division, Tyson has made the difficult decision to vacate the belts. This will also allow him the time and space to fully recover from his present condition without any undue pressure and with the expert medical attention he requires and his close family support.

“I feel that it is only fair and right and for the good of boxing to keep the titles active and allow the other contenders to fight for the vacant belts that I proudly won and held as the undefeated heavyweight champion of the world when I defeated the long-standing champion Wladimir Klitschko,” said Tyson.

Brunson battles Garcia on stacked Philly card

South Philly lights up again Friday night with another boxing show stacked with local talent. New venues and new promoters have given Philadelphia a shot in the arm in 2016. Friday’s event, however, comes from the most established of local promoters, Peltz Boxing (with BAM Boxing and Joe Hand Promotions – plus visiting DiBella Entertainment), at the City’s most established boxing venue, the 2300 Arena.

Like most Peltz cards, this show is loaded with local fighters and strong, intriguing matches. Headlining on Friday is a tasty 8-round clash between two junior middleweights, Tyrone Brunson and Ismael “Tito” Garcia. However, the card offers eight other fights featuring young rising talent (Isaiah Wise, Anthony Burgin, Steven Ortiz), tried and true vets (Victor Vasquez, Fred Jenkins Jr., Osnel Charles), a returning favorite (Hasan Young), a promising undefeated out-of-towner (Mike Reed), and a streaking local on the brink of a title shot (Tevin Farmer).

The main event presents the ring recipe preferred my most boxing fans. Tyrone Brunson, 23-6-1, 22 KOs, is a puncher, and Tito Garcia, 10-0, 4 KOs, is a boxer. On paper, that’s usually all you need to know. But this fight is interesting not only for its potential fireworks. It is also a crossroads fight for both boxers. (more…)

Derry Mathews believes he has the power to break the heart of Luke Campbell MBE and KO him when they clash for Campbell’s WBC Silver Lightweight title at the Echo Arena in Liverpool on Saturday night, live on Sky Sports.

Mathews comes into the fight on the back of a crack at WBO champion Terry Flanagan here in March in his 50th pro outing, and the Liverpool favourite believes his power and experience, coupled with the vulnerabilities he’s seen with the Olympic gold medal man hitting the canvas in recent fights, will see him destroy Campbell’s World title dreams and set himself up for another shot.

“Everyone knows Luke was a great amateur but there are flaws in him,” said Mathews. “Anyone who knows boxing can see that. I know I’m going to go in there and break his heart. I can and I will beat him tonight. He’s never been in with anyone like me before and he will get exposed. (more…)

Jay Rood, Vice President of Race & Sports for MGM Resorts International, provides his expert analysis of the match-up:

“I really believe this could end up being a ‘Fight of the Year’ candidate. Usually fighters in good form don’t meet up. Because of that, this fight opened close, has remained so and, most likely, will close so. It’s not very often that a fight in Las Vegas that’s this significant is this close in terms of odds. Ward opened at -145 and he now is at -150. I don’t believe it will change much from here.” (more…)

Former world light-welterweight champion Chris Algieri has been in Germany recently, leading workshops at boxing clubs in Nuremburg and Munich.

Boxwerk in Munich, owned and managed by Nick Trachte, was the venue for one very successful boxing seminar in which Algieri shared his world championship experience to demonstrate techniques, training tips and give coaching to club members. The seminar coincided with the Oktoberfest, the annual beer festival which also gave him an opportunity to experience German culture with a jug of beer and traditional folk songs.

“I love it! The people are great and the cities are beautiful. People have a great respect for the Art of Boxing here, which I am very proud and excited to experience.”

Algieri had a career-defining year in 2014 when he defeated Emmanuel Taylor to set up a world title clash with Ruslan Provodnikov, which he won by split decision. He then stepped up a weight class to face the great Manny Pacquiao, losing by decision in Macao, China.

The 32-year-old has only fought once this year when he was stopped by undefeated welterweight prospect, Errol Spence Jr., who handed him his first stoppage loss. (more…)
