The final day of the WBO 25th Annual Convention concluded yesterday with the championship and rating committee meetings, one of the most exciting, and contentious events of the convention.
Mini-flyweight/Junior-flyweight: Almost immediately, fans were excited upon learning that WBO mini-flyweight champion Moises Fuentes was looking to move up to 108-pounds, and hoping to be named mandatory challenger to junior flyweight champion Donnie Nietes. The news that the mini-flyweight champion was moving up created ripples in the division, as President Valcarcel ordered the #2 ranked Raul Garcia and the #3 ranked Luis De La Rosa to work out a fight for the vacant title in 15 days. The winner would have to fight the #1 contender Carlos Buitrago in his first defense within 90 days. Buitrago was unable to fight for the vacant title due to a cut.
Flyweight: Brian Viloria was given some leeway over his next mandatory defense, with the WBO noting his recent mandatory defense. (more…)

Former U.S. Olympian and two-time world champion in different divisions Eric Morel (46-4, 23 KOs) of Puerto Rico has decided to retire from the ring and continue a career as a manager and eventually become a boxing promoter according to his father and trainer Cyril Morel. The former WBA flyweight champion and WBO bantamweight champion had lost his last two fights against the unbeaten Abner Mares and Leo Santa Cruz in his only two fights in 2012.
“Eric had a brilliant career and we’re grateful to all the promoters who believed in his talent,” said Cyril. “He is negotiating with Golden Boy Promotions as has has three young prospects. I supported him in his decision. That is what he wants from now on. The time has come. He is 37 years old. We look at the knockout that happened to Erik Morales and don’t want that to happen to Eric, who has never been knocked out. We had to stop the last fight because Santa Cruz had more speed and we weren’t going to expose him to that. We realized that the time has come.” (more…)

With only a little over a year in his comeback to promoting shows in Tijuana, Mexico, Guillermo “Memo” Mayen of Mayen Promotions has once again put the city’s name on the world stage on Thursday, October 25th, by presenting “Tijuana Dresses in Pink”, an all women fight card where every cog of the show was filled by a woman, from the ring announcer to the seconds, doctor, timekeeper, referee and boxing commissioner personified by the 1st female champion ever crowned by the WBC, Jackie “Aztec Princess” Nava. According to Mayen, the six-bout fight card was the first of its kind registered by the Guinness Book of World Records. Part of the proceeds where designated to various organizations in the fight against breast cancer. In the main event held at the Las Pulgas nightclub located on the world famous Avenida Revolucion, Joselyn “Princesa Tapatia” Arroyo (11-0, 4KOs) remained undefeated as she easily dispatched the over matched Yadira Trejo (3-1) for the vacant NABF female flyweight title.
The event was not void of controversy. When it was announced on Fightnews.com earlier this week, a female South African promoter let it be known that not only had she already staged a similar event but four of them and trumped it by being a female promoter. (more…)
