Salido stripped of IBF belt

Too much weight gained

12 hours before his unification fight against WBA featherweight champ Yuriorkis Gamboa, IBF champ Orlando Salido was stripped of the belt for exceeding the IBF’s maximum 10 pound weight gain rule after an 8AM weigh-in. Salido, who weighed 126 at yesterday’s weigh-in, weighed 138. The rule is intended to prevent the fighters from risking their health due to rapid weight gain. As a result the WBA title is still up for grabs for both fighters, but only Gambaoa is eligible to win the IBF belt. If Salido wins, the IBF title will be vacant.

Nikulin, Nonaka collide tomorrow

By Joe Koizumi

Unbeaten Ukrainian, WBO European 154-pound champ Dmytro Nikulin (21-0, 8 KOs) will cope with ex-OPBF ruler Yuki Nonaka (19-8-2, 7 KOs) on Sunday in Osaka, Japan. Both tipped the beam at 153.5 pounds today. It is an encounter of southpaws. WBO #8 Nikulin, under K2 Promotions, acquired the vacant WBO regional belt by scoring a third round knockout over Abdulaziz Matazimov in Ukraine last December. Nanaka, two inches taller and six years his senior at 32, forfeited his OPBF belt to Akio Shibata (who recently yielded the throne to Charlie Ota Bellamy) last November. Nikulin seems more skillful, faster and younger, but Nonaka may attempt to mix it up and hurt him with left crosses. Nikulin’s manager Alexander Krassyuk, responding to a TV interview, predicted his boy’s triumph either on points or by a stoppage. It will be a good fight to be presented by Amagasaki Promotions.

Martin wins again

By Felipe Leon at ringside

Just one month after his big upset win over Chris Avalos, undefeated super bantamweight Christopher “S.D. Kid” Martin (20-0-2, 6 KOs) returned with an eighth round TKO over Jose Luis “Tapitas” Araiza (32-3, 23 KOs) at the Four Points Sheraton Hotel in San Diego. Martin dropped Araiza with a left hook in round seven and finished him in the eighth with a body shot. Referee Raul Caiz Sr. waved it off at 2:03. Another good win for Martin. Araiza had fought in a WBO bantamweight eliminator in his last fight.

In the co-feature, unbeaten Olympian welterweight Luis Enrique Grajeda (10-0-1, 7 KOs) was knocked down in rounds two and six by Alan Sanchez (5-2-1, 2 KOs), but somehow managed to salvage an unpopular eight round draw. Scores were 75-75 on all cards.

By Gabriel F. Cordero

Today the WBA announced that it will call a purse bid for matches between WBA interim jr middleweight champion Nobuhiro Ishida and Austin Trout, as well as WBA super lightweight champion Amir Khan vs interim champion Marcos Maidana. The bidding will take place on Tuesday, September 21st at 10:00 a.m in the WBA’s Panama Headquarters. The purse bid will be directed by WBA Executive Vice President Gilberto Jesus Mendoza and Ratings Chairman Jose Oliver Gomez.

The application for an Ishida vs. Rigoberto “Español” Alvarez (Canelo Alvarez’ brother) championship fight was denied due to the availability and willingness of leading available contender Trout. Ishida-Alvarez was planned for for September 25 at Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico against Rigoberto “Español” Alvarez. Pursuant to a separate Resolution, Miguel Cotto has been appointed super champion of the super welterweight division. The terms and conditions for such recognition are identified in that resolution. The Ishida vs. Trout bout will be for the now vacant WBA regular 154lb title.
