By Ron Jackson

Mzonke Fana will make the first defence of his IBF junior lightweight belt against mandatory challenger Argenis Mendez from the Dominican Republic on June 11 at Carnival City, Brakpan, South Africa.

Since this setback Mendez who is the USBA super featherweight champion has racked up wins against Arturo Gomez, Anthony Napunyi, Morris Chule, Martin Honorio, Shamir Reyes and Baloyi.

Yamanaka named Boxer of Carnival

By Joe Koizumi

The Japan Professional Boxing Association (JPBA), consisting of all club owners here, named WBA#3/WBC#3 national bantamweight champ Shinsuke Yamanaka (14-0-2, 10 KOs) Boxer of the Champion Carnival on Wednesday after all the compulsory defenses of our national champs and mandatory challengers were successfully over. Yamanaka, 28, impressively kept his belt by halting previously unbeaten and highly regarded Ryosuke Iwasa via tenth round TKO at the Korakuen Hall on March 5. It was a sensational encounter of the unblemished southpaw prospects, but Yamanaka eventually had the upper hand over the aggressive but less experienced Iwasa.

The technique award was given to WBC#5/WBA#6 national super-fly champ Yota Sato (21-2-1, 11 KOs) who finely defeated two-time world challenger Yohei Kono by a unanimous decision this April. The fighting spirit award was rendered to WBA#7/WBC#10 Japanese lightweight ruler Nihito Arakawa (19-1-1, 13 KOs), who looked sharp in stopping Hiroshi Nakamori in eight rounds in January. The award-giving ceremony will take place at the Korakuen Hall on May 19, the Boxing Day in Japan, when Yoshio Shirai captured the world flyweight belt from Dado Marino to become this country’s first world champion fifty-nine years ago.

Dan Goossen Statement

Contrary to Wilfried Sauerland’s comment in his press release of today when he states, “all of a sudden (California Commission) insists on installing a Californian judge as well as a Californian referee,” Wilfried would be 100% incorrect that the commission insisted on a California referee or acted in any manner inconsistent with our agreement with Sauerland.

Exactly what was agreed upon, the California Commission has granted, one Californian judge, one German judge, one neutral territory judge, and a neutral territory referee, which the California Commission was very helpful in supporting.

“As for Andre Ward, he is focused on preparing and continuing his rise towards the finals of the Showtime Super Six Tournament bout against Arthur Abraham regardless of the officials.”
