Mesi a Buffalo BHOF inductee

By Bob Caico

Former heavyweight contender “Baby” Joe Mesi will be inducted into the Buffalo Boxing Hall of Fame in ceremonies this August. Mesi finished his career with a record of 36-0, 29 KOs, which saw him climb to the #1 rankings by the WBC in 2003. A brain injury forced him to miss two years during his prime and after a seven-fight comeback he decided to hang up the gloves for good. Currently Mesi is an appointed deputy commissioner with the NYSAC and is enjoying his new career selling medical supplies for St. Jude Medical. “I am extremely excited and honored that my boxing career is appreciated and I want to thank all the members of Ring 44 and especially president Jack Green for inducting me in this year’s Hall of Fame,” said Joe. Mesi is content with his boxing career and is very proud of his family that includes his recently turned one-year-old daughter Juliet and his 13-year-old stepdaughter Hope. “I always wanted to make myself proud and my community proud of my boxing career and I’m grateful I had the chance to bring boxing back in an exciting way to the City of Buffalo.”

Also to be inducted are Alan “Pony Boy” Kemp who currently trains fighters in California, Harry Fuller and Dick Loadman.

Maidana: He knows I beat him

Exclusive Comments from Team Maidana:

After his hard-fought victory last Saturday against Erik Morales, newly crowned WBA interim super lightweight champion Marcos Maidana returned to his native Argentina, where he was received like a hero by his fans. On Wednesday afternoon, Maidana spoke before 120-plus boxing writers in attendance where he gave some thoughts on the fight against Morales and his future.

“I cannot be happier to be world champ again,” said Maidana. “Me and my team were the first one to know and say that Morales would be a tough foe. We repeated that all during training camp to every writer. He gave me such a tough fight, but I am the champion. It was a close fight and but think I won it in the last two rounds. And I guess boxing fans can be happy with this kind of fight. Like I said in the ring after the fight, if he wants the rematch, I’ll give it to him anytime. He deserves it.”

“What I didn’t like about Morales is him calling me a dirty fighter. I know he says some things for the business but he knows I won the fight, a close one, but he knows I beat him,” El Chino added. (more…)

Three months out from IBO cruiserweight champion Danny Green’s world title fight with former light heavyweight world champion Antonio Tarver in Sydney, Green has moved his focus temporarily to his company Green Machine Boxing in Perth, Western Australia. Green is hosting “The Next Generation Fight Night” this on Friday at the WA State Basketball Centre to throw his support behind some of the new boxing talent in Western Australia.

Green said that “Hopefully one day I will make a good trainer of sorts but I am not sure yet if that is what I would want to do, but if I can give some good advice to these guys and just pass on a bit of my experience, that’s what it’s all about, and hopefully they can learn from that.” After Friday night, “The Green Machine” with the help of his trainer Angelo Hyder will quickly turn his focus back to his upcoming fight with Tarver at the Sydney Entertainment Centre on July 20.

Gevor suspended six months

Super middleweight contender Khoren Gevor has been suspended for six months and fined 5,100 Euros by the BDB (German Boxing Federation) for attacking referee Manfred Kuechler, who had disqualified him in the tenth round of a WBO world title fight against Robert Stieglitz last weekend in Magdeburg, Germany. Gevor later personally apologized to Kuechler. “The fact that the suspension wasn’t harsher is due to Manfred Kuechler accepting Gevor’s apology and calling for no serious sanctions,” said BDB President Thomas Pütz. “In addition, in making our decision we considered that that Khoren understands and shows regret for his action. Also, we’ve known him for years as an impeccable sportsman, and so we accept this as an emotional act and set the penalty accordingly.”

“We accept the punishment,” said Gevor’s manager Peter Schulze. “Khoren behaved improperly and has to live with the consequences.” Schulze also called for an immediate rematch with Stieglitz when Gevor’s suspension expires because “at the moment, too many questions remain unanswered.”
