Thompson title shot in early 2012

Heavyweight Tony “The Tiger” Thompson’s mandatory IBF championship challenge is to take place within 90 days of heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko’s title defense on December 10 against Jean-Marc Mormeck (36-4, 22 KO’s) with the winner to face Thompson. The IBF officially declared Thompson the mandatory challenger after Eddie Chambers pulled out of an October 28 IBF eliminator and was unable to commit to a new date that was set for December 17. “I believe it was a tough, but honorable and right decision by the IBF and it’s president, Daryl Peoples,” said Dan Goossen of Goossen Tutor Promotions. “It was an unfortunate circumstance with Eddie forfeiting his chance and derailing the final match of the four-man IBF sanctioned box off.” Thompson stated that he “was crying my eyes out with joy.”

McCall out, Gavern in

What may seem like insurmountable odds for most fighters might wind up playing into Jason Gavern’s favor Saturday night as the Florida-based heavyweight prepares for the opportunity of a lifetime. The 34-year-old Gavern (21-8-4, 10 KOs), a Kissimmee, Fla., resident born in Harrisonburg, Va., will face undefeated Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach (25-0, 13 KOs) of North Bergen, N.J., Saturday for Wach’s WBC International heavyweight belt in the 12-round main event of “November Reign,” presented by Jimmy Burchfield’s Classic Entertainment & Sports in association with Global Boxing and Joe DeGuardia’s Star Boxing at the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, Conn.

Wach was originally scheduled to face former world champion Oliver McCall in Saturday’s main event, but the Mohegan Tribe Department of Athletic Regulation was unable to license McCall, 46, so Gavern will answer the call on short notice, a trend he’s grown accustomed to in his professional career.

His speed and power is coming together at the right time but we all know how dangerous an opponent Juan Manuel Marquez is.

Chicago promoters protest

Up in arms over Commission clamp down

Two top boxing promoters in the Chicagoland area say they are fed up with Illinois commission’s recent spate of rules changes that, they say, make it much more difficult to promote an event in the state. Bobby Hitz, Founder of Hitz Boxing and Domenic Pesoli, President of 8 Count Productions, say they will meet together with state representatives this week with a list of grievances about the state’s latest round of rule changes.

Already having recently increased their basic fees (some as high as 1000% or more), yesterday (November 1) Rafael Caro II, Public Service Administrator for the Illinois State Athletic Commission notified all licensed promoters of the changes, including the following (paraphrased):

There will be absolutely no deductions done for the Boxers/Contestants at any weigh-in and/or event.

Ringside physicians will not be doing physicals for any contestants… They must get physicals done by a MD or DO only, prior to the weigh-in.

ALL Boxers/Contestants must be licensed prior to the weigh-in.
(Boxers) are to pay all fees by check or money order only whenever they submit their application. Any seconds (cornermen) can get licensed no later than the weigh-in (no one will be allowed to license the day of event).

It is imperative and your sole responsibility to inform all professional boxers/contestants of these new changes. No exceptions will be given.
