Artemio Reyes Jr. returns

By Francisco Salazar
Photos: Big Joe Miranda

The last time fight fans on the national level saw welterweight Artemio Reyes Jr. was when he was stopped in the first round by Alan Sanchez on April 13th. Although those punches by Sanchez did hurt Reyes, they were nothing like the hurt Reyes suffered when he lost his father less than two weeks prior to the fight. While some fighters may postpone a fight due to an illness or a death in the family, Reyes soldiered on, choosing to not back out of the fight against Sanchez. According to Reyes Jr., anything less than that would be the opposite as to how he was brought up by his father.

Reyes will continue his march to fulfilling his dream of winning a world title belt in honor of his father as he takes on John David Charles in the eight round main event at the Omega Products International in Corona, CA.

The bout headlines a six-bout “New Blood” card, presented by Thompson Boxing Promotions. (more…)

Andre Berto Licensed by CSAC

Former IBF welterweight champion Andre Berto has been licensed by the California State Athletic Commission after completing all necessary pre-licensing requirements. “As someone who truly believes in clean sport, I have never used any type of performing enhancing drugs. Everything I’ve achieved was the result of hard work and determination,” Berto said. “I am excited that this whole situation is behind me, and I look forward to returning to the ring soon with another exciting performance so stay tuned.”

Berto’s positive test in May revealed extremely small amounts of a banned substance, which the CSAC deemed inconsistent with any performance-enhancing effect and were much more consistent with contamination of an otherwise acceptable food or supplement.

WBA looks to reduce controversial decisions

By Gabriel F. Cordero

The WBA is seeking to try to modify the current “10-point must” scoring system in an effort to reduce controversial decisions. Currently a boxer gets a 10-9 whether he clearly wins a round or whether he has a slight edge. The WBA has proposed a new system where the boxer clearly winning a round gets the full 10-9 score, whereas a boxer who wins a close round would only get 10 to 9.5.

The WBA is already using half-point scoring in Fedelatin and Fedebol regional fights, but the last weekend the system was used in Peru in the interim world title fight between champion Alberto Rossel and challenger Karluis Diazwas. It’s expected that very soon the half-point will be used in NABA, PABA and European title fights.

Apparently boxing commissions as Costa Rica, Venezuela, Panama, Nicaragua and Peru have agreed to deploy the half point. It’s also known that WBA President Gilberto Mendoza recently presented the merits of the system to The Association of Boxing Commissions in the United States.

There is a possibility that a formal decision will be reached to utilize the half-point worldwide at the 2012 WBA convention in Jakarta, Indonesia.
