WBC combats AIBA “invasion”

Official Statement: WBC President Jose Sulaiman stated that after the recent AIBA (Amateur International Boxing Association) Convention in Baku, Azerbaijan, where two consecutive AIBA world championships have been held, the AIBA is demanding:

1. The disaffiliation of the world’s boxing national commissions from specifically the WBC, WBA, WBO AND IBF.

2. Ordering the signing of exclusive contracts of amateur boxers belonging to their affiliated federations.

3. To allow into the Olympic Games only professional boxers registered in the AIBA.

4. The starting of professional AIBA boxing promotions, all which have been a total failure at least in Korea, Miami and Mexico where boxers were not paid, in addition to several scandals reported by the media. (more…)

Huck calls out the Klitschkos

Last night WBO cruiserweight champion Marco Huck publicly called out both Klitschko brothers on one of Germany’s biggest TV shows “TV Total.” ‘Captain’ Huck had a special present for host Stefan Raab who hosts a platform diving event this weekend which will feature Huck as one of the guest stars: A life-size cardboard stand-up of himself holding baby-versions of the Klitschkos in his arms, complete with broken teeth and with Wlad sporting a black eye. “I don’t care which brother I can get my hands on. I would fight both of them right away,” proclaimed Huck. Raab stated, “If you win our diving event I will talk to Wladimir and make the fight happen!” David Haye drew the ire of the Klitschko family with an image on a t-shirt. How will they react to this?

Gatti coroner renders decision

"No evidence of foul play"

A Quebec coroner’s report released today on the 2009 death of ring legend Arturo Gatti says “there is no clear evidence of foul play in Mr. Gatti’s death.” According to the Canadian Press, the report confirmed that Gatti died a “violent death” with the probable cause of death listed as “asphyxiation by neck constriction,” but did not contradict the ruling of Brazilian authorities that Gatti’s death was a suicide. Gatti’s former manager had hired experts who had declared Gatti’s death a homicide after a private investigation. There is an ongoing legal dispute between Gatti relatives and his widow over his assets.

Man killed after TV boxing match

A man was shot and killed around 12:30 AM Sunday morning outside the San Jose Fiesta Mexican restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, which is owned by long time boxing manager/trainer Ramon Arellano. There was a large hispanic crowd on hand to support Mexican boxer Alfredo Angulo in his HBO televised fight vs James Kirkland Saturday night. After the fight, words were exchanged between two patrons coming in and out of the restaurant simultaneously that escalated to where one of the patrons shot the other in the chest resulting in his death. The incident happened outside of the restaurant in the parking lot. “We have never had anything like this happen before,” said Arellano. “We are family operated business and we support boxing and televise all the major fights here for the public to see. We have been in business since 1997 and we run a clean operation here and we have sponsored many youth in the boxing community as well. We send our sincerest condolences to the victim’s family.”

Arthur not seeking Burns rematch

Alex Arthur has confirmed that he is not seeking a rematch with fellow Scotsman and newly crowned WBO interim lightweight champion Ricky Burns and will now officially move up to the light-welterweight division. Back in February 2006 at the Meadowbank Sports Centre in his home city of Edinburgh, Arthur defended his European, Commonwealth and British super-featherweight titles against Burns via a unanimous decision points victory.

There has been talk of a rematch between the pair since the Coatbridge man captured and made three successful defences of the WBO super-featherweight title which was previously held by Arthur. The speculation has intensified after Burns out-boxed Australian Michael Katsidis in London to make a big impact in his debut as a lightweight. Arthur said: “I just want to state that I want to and would love to fight Ricky for the interim title but I am no longer capable of safely making lightweight. (more…)

Pacquiao to answer all doubts

Story by Andreas Hale
Photo by Chris Cozzone

Manny Pacquiao’s rosy career has one major thorn in its side.

No, it’s not the “Money” Mayweather thorn that has overshadowed any relevant boxing conversation. It’s the “Dinamita” thorn known as Juan Manuel Marquez. No matter how many foes he obliterates and championship titles he collects, the Filipino has been haunted by his closely contested battles with the Mexican that still leaves fans wondering if the two fighters would have switched spots on the pound for pound rankings if Marquez would have won an extra round or two in and took home victories in both of their fights. Instead, Pacquiao sits at a satisfying (albeit far from definitive) 1-0-1 in his two fights with Marquez over the past seven years. (more…)

WBA convention day 2

Photos and story by Boxing Bob Newman

Day 2 of the 90th annual WBA convention in Donetsk, Ukraine got underway on a somber note once again, as President Mendoza asked for a moment of silence to pay homage to former heavyweight champion “Smokin” Joe Frazier, who passed last night at age 67. Frazier was recently diagnosed with liver cancer, as well as having struggled with diabetes for many years. Also, a moment of silence was observed for former WBA vice president Shigeru Kojima, who passed on August 26th of this year.

A review of minutes of yesterday’s Day 1 opening meetings was reviewed.
Jose Emilio Graglia represented the Cordoba (Argentina) Federation in speaking to the situation regarding anti-doping in Argentina. While the WBA’s stance is that anti-doping needs to be conducted in it’s title fights, if not universally for all fights, Graglia responded that the testing group simply never showed up to conduct the tests at the recent Caballero-Barros fight.
