Caballero to appeal WBA decision

By Gabriel F. Cordero

At a press conference held Tuesday in Panama City, Panamanian WBA featherweight champion Celestino “Pelenchín” Caballero insisted he will continue fighting for his rights against the WBA and refuses to accept the decision the WBA World Championships Committee announced on Friday granting additional time to promoter Sampson Boxing to pull together a bout between Caballero and mandatory challenger Mikey Garcia by September 7. Caballero reiterated his willingness to fight Garcia, but stated that Garcia is already planning to fight Orlando Salido for another belt and he will use all legal means to make sure the WBA follows its own rules.

He said his lawyers will file an appeal for reconsideration of WBA’s decision requesting the following:

1) That Sampson Boxing ensure that if Garcia doesn’t sign the contract for the fight, that Caballero will be compensated for his expenses.

2) If Garcia agrees and signs the contract for the match, that Caballero will be compensated for the additional time spent in preparations for the new date.

3) If Caballero-Garcia doesn’t happen, Caballero wants the WBA to order a fight between him and WBA featherweight “super” world champion Chris John who hasn’t done a mandatory fight in more than 30 months. Or alternatively be granted a voluntary defense.

Javier Fortuna is one of the hottest prospects in the super featherweight division and he impressively confirmed his rising stock last Friday with a nationally televised two round blowout of former IBF champion Cristobal Cruz. The 22-year-old Fortuna (20-0, 15 KOs) levelled the usually sturdy Cruz with an awesome left cross. Discovered three years ago in the Dominican Republic by promoter Sampson Lewkowicz, Javier is today ranked by three world boxing bodies and seems on the threshold of world title contention. Says Lewkowicz about his protege: “Javier has terrific power and he is also a smooth boxer and has great work ethic.

Anthony Mundine addresses 9/11 comments

Photo: Tim Barry

More than a decade after saying Americans brought the 9/11 attacks upon themselves, former WBA super middleweight champion Anthony Mundine (43-4-1, 32 KOs) of Australia is ready to fight for the first time on American soil. Mundine was condemned worldwide and even dropped from the WBC ratings after stating in an interview shortly after the 9/11 attacks, “They call it an act of terrorism, but if you can understand religion, and our way of life, it’s not about terrorism. It’s about fighting for God’s law, and America’s brought it upon themselves.”

Now Mundine claims those words were taken out of context, telling the Sydney Morning Herald, “I have got nothing against any American, I have got nothing against any human being. It breaks my heart that people think I would even have that line of thought about being happy about people dying. That is crap and I want to clarify that because it is wrong.”

Now fighting as a middleweight, Mundine faces 41-year-old Bronco McKart (54-9-1, 32 KOs) in a WealthTV pay-per-view telecast on Saturday at the Palms in Las Vegas — going head-to-head with the HBO telecast of the world championship clash between Amir Khan vs. Danny Garcia which is taking place just blocks away at Mandalay Bay.

Eto defeats WBO #2 Isack

By Joe Koizumi

Elongated Japanese prospect Taiki Eto (10-1, 7 KOs), 115.75, decked a very important triumph over WBO #2 super-fly Isack Junior (20-2-2, 8 KOs), 115.25, WBO Asia Pacific champ, by a well-received unanimous decision (80-72, 78-75 and 77-76) over eight non-title rounds on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. Isack, a shorter but muscular southpaw, kept boring in to try to land his trademark lefts, which looked effective in the second session. The much taller Eto, 24, then kept circling to the left to keep the distance from Isack’s strong lefts, and occasionally scored with solid rights to the face with precision. As the contest progressed, Eto took the initiative more clearly to sweep the last three rounds to confirm his victory. Eto, one of the three boxing brothers, had stunned the crowd by halting ex-WBA super-fly challenger Konosuke Tomiyama in six lopsided rounds this April.

His manager/promoter, ex-world champ Gushiken said, “My next world champ may be Taiki Eto.” We’ll watch this prospect’s progress to see whether Gushiken’s prediction will be right or not. Promoter: Shirai Gushiken Promotions.

Charlie was born in Enfield in 1930 and made his professional debut at the age of 16 years – boxing a three round draw with Al Lawrence at Sydney Stadium in 1946.

Panama Commission voids results

On its Monday night meeting, Panamanian Boxing Commission unanimously approved voiding the results of 2 fights between Venezuelan female fighters and Panamanian women with no amateur or professional boxing experience. After four and a half months, the only four members who attended the Comibox weekly meeting decided to declare “exhibition fights” the previously ruled TKOs of Alys “La China” Sanchez over Adina Knowles and Carolina Alvarez against Aneth Morgan.

This unexpected decision from Panama’s Comibox occurs 4 days after the WBA decided against Panamanian Celestino Caballero and favored promoter Sampson Lewkowicz on their dispute for the promotion of Caballero’s next mandatory defense. Caballero invited the sports media to a press conference to be held at El Jade Tavern on Tuesday 10am. He is expected to announce his legal reaction to WBA decision.
