Kaddour Shines in Area Debut

By Lindy Lindell
Photos: Bob Ryder

Sporting a bright baby-face, young beyond his years, Ahmad “Babyface” Kaddour, 29, hammered out a convincing stoppage win over the durable Vance Garvey, when Garvey’s corner tossed in the towel that bespeaks “Uncle”. Kaddour seems to have “grown up” since his spotty televised appearances of several seasons ago when he was much younger (24) and had features that appeared to have never known a razor. Of Lebanese decent by way of Denmark, Kaddour has settled into the Arabic Dearborn community and has been training in Phil Awada’s gym for several months. Awada told me that he has arranged for no fewer than four fights in the area in the next few month, including a shot in the boxing-starved Palace of Auburn Hills in January.

Palacios opponent named

By Przemek Garczarczyk

Joell Godfrey (13-4, 6 KO) will challenge number one ranked WBC cruiserweight contender Francisco Palacios (20-1, 13 KO) when both fighters will meet during the “Viva Don King” event on November 5 in the Seminole Hard Rock Casino and Hotel in Hollywood, Florida. “The Wizard” Palacios, who was added late to the card, has no doubts what he wants to do in the ring. “I’m getting in the ring knock him out. I don’t care that he won his last four fights, because he did not fight me. Full speed ahead, knock Joell out and wait for my second chance to get WBC title. This is that simple,” said Palacios, who is training with his friend and fellow cruiserweight Alfredo Escalera Jr and Mike Marrone, who on November 5 will try to dethrone current WBA champ Guillermo Jones.

Baysangurov new WBO 154 champ

Luis Batista Salas, Chairman of the WBO World Championship Committee, has announced that the WBO super welterweight championship of Serhiy Dzinziruk has been vacated pursuant to WBO Rule 5(c ); and interim titleholder Zaurbek Baysangurov is declared to be the new WBO super welterweight champion. Dzinziruk will be rated as the #2 contender, while #1 contender Lukas Konecny must start negotiations to face new champion Baysangurov and the parties have ten days to negotiate an agreement. If an accord is not reached within that time frame, a purse bid will be ordered. The winner of Baysangurov-Konecny must face Dzinziruk within 120 days.

Dzinziruk had held the belt since 2005, making six defenses. He was stripped for not conducting two mandatory defenses he had agreed to as a condition to be allowed to challenge middleweight titleholder Sergio Martinez in March. He also has not defended his WBO Championship since May 14, 2010, more than 16 months ago. He pulled out of a scheduled fight with Konecny citing an injury.
