Boxing card canceled in Panama

By Gabriel F. Cordero

According to a credible source, the Panama Boxing Commission has decided to cancel Saturday’s boxing event at the Palacio Dorado in Panama City. The event was organized by Producciones Cornejo with the main event being an eight round light flyweight clash between WBA world ranked Panamanian Edwin “La Pantera” Diaz against Nicaraguan Francisco Meza. Although no formal announcement by COMIBOX, the source said the reason was mainly because the Nicaraguan boxers scheduled may not have the permission to leave by the Nicaragua Boxing Commission.

Olusgun-Chebah showdown 9/30

By Francisco Salazar

Promoter Lou DiBella confirmed to Fightnews.com on Wednesday afternoon that the Ajose Olusegun-Ali Chebah 12 round bout will take place at the Chumash Casino Resort on September 30th. The bout is a title eliminator as Olusegun is ranked number two and Chebah, from France, is ranked number six by the WBC. Chebah’s (35-1, 28 KO’s) only defeat was at the hands of Reyes Sanchez almost three years ago in Mexico City. He bounced back from the loss to knockout Pipino Cuevas Jr. and Joel Juarez within six months. The Nigerian-born Olusegun (29-0, 14 KO’s) has fought most of his fights in England, where he now resides. He has not faced the most formidable opposition throughout his career. His most impressive victories to date have been a knockout victory over Colin Lynes and two decision wins over Nigel Wright. The fight will headline a “ShoBox: The New Generation” telecast.

Nava-Torres II presser

Photos: Rafael Soto/Zanfer

At Thursday’s presser in Tuxtla Gutierrez, Chiapas, Mexico, female boxing superstars Jackie Nava and Ana Maria Torres did not hesitate to predict a ‘war’ in ring and a possible knockout winner in the rematch of their draw last April.

Ana Maria Torres: “The first fight was very tough, we feel that we won it, but this time to avoid doubt look for the knockout with intelligence, without rushing, but just win round after round if the fight would go to decision.”

Jackie Nava: “It would have special meaning to win the Diamond belt. Plus at this point in my career, I am a very experienced fighter who has faced any challenges that has come…the fight will be a war in the ring, I’ll start with great determination and intensity unlike the first fight.”

In the semi-final, the Azteca Champion runner up Felipe Orucuta (20-1, 16 KOs) meets Jesus Vazquez (14-6-1, 17 KOs) in a ten-round bantamweight clash. (more…)
