BPA to reach out to McCain

The Boxing Promoters Association (BPA) held a meeting this week in Las Vegas at the Planet Hollywood Hotel. The meeting was well attended, and officially marked the first time that promotional powerhouse, Golden Boy Promotions (GBP), which was represented by CEO Richard Schaefer, was an active participant. One major development is that the BPA will be reaching out to U.S. Senator John McCain to discuss both past and present issues with boxing legislation. The group intends to specifically address the Muhammad Ali Act and the bill being proposed in the U.S. Congress. Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya will join BPA President, Joe DeGuardia, and some other members of the Board of Directors at the anticipated meeting with McCain.

Aydin tired of delays

Demands Berto make mandatory defense

WBC mandatory welterweight challenger Selcuk Aydin is upset that speculations about Andre Berto’s next possible opponents do not include his name. “How can Berto and his promoter even talk to and about guys like Ortiz when they know exactly that they have to fight me first?”, asks Aydin who is currently in his hometown Trabzon (Turkey) where he already started training for his world title fight. “This is very disrespectful and really p*sses me off. They know exactly that I am the mandatory challenger. I stepped aside once and allowed them an easy win over a stiff. Now they want to take the easy way out again by just discussing possible fights and completely ignoring me. I don’t understand this kind of behavior.” (more…)

WBC expects Shaw’s cooperation

WBC President Jose Sulaiman has announced that Jean Pascal and Bernard Hopkins deserve the opportunity of fighting in an immediate rematch for the opportunity to win the WBC Diamond Belt. He also addressed claims from promoter Gary Shaw that Pascal must fight a rematch with Chad Dawson before taking any other fight.

“We have read statements, articles and letters, some aggressive, from our longtime and good friend Gary Shaw, an active WBC promoter, and we understand the position of some promoters strictly in favor of their business. But neither he nor anybody else ever registered any contract for a second fight between our proud champion Pascal and Chad Dawson, which would have required WBC approval and sanction. The WBC never had any official knowledge of a condition to Pascal, who is the champion and not the challenger, to resign to his WBC world championship if he did not fight Dawson next. No promoter or boxer can agree to a fight for the WBC world title without first obtaining WBC approval and sanction. (more…)

Mahir Oral returns Jan 22

Two time-world title challenger Mahir Oral (28-3-2, 11 KOs) will return to the ring on the undercard of the January 22 Sauerland Event promotion featuring IBF middleweight champion Sebastian Sylvester defense against Mehdi Bouadla at the Jahnsportforum in Neubrandenburg, Germany.

Then I dropped out of sight and was considering whether I should hang up my boxing gloves. My wife Ferda motivated me and built my confidence back up. Now I’ve analyzed the last fight and I know where my weaknesses are, so it makes sense to make a new start.” (more…)
