Ortiz-Lopez quick quotes

By Andreas Hale

Dan Goossen: “I don’t like any promoter announcing a fight when they have another fight in front of them. We have a damn good fighter in Josesito Lopez and I thought it was very disrespectful for them to announce that Victor Ortiz will be Canelo’s next opponent. We’ll show them on June 23rd.”

Josesito Lopez: “I’m very upset at the announcement. They are jumping the gun. I find it very disrespectful. But that just adds to my motivation.”

Victor Ortiz: “As far as I’m concerned, I don’t disrespect anyone. I’m fighting a great fighter on June 23rd. I’ve been ignoring everyone about Canelo. I don’t care about Canelo right now. He’s in my position when I faced Berto last year. The difference is that I’m too hungry to let my chance go. If he wants to go to war, we’ll go to war. It’s in his hands. I know he’s ready and so am I.”

Chakhkiev declared ready for title shot

The good ranking positions are extremely important for unbeaten WBC #5/WBO #10 cruiserweight Rakhim “The Machine” Chakhkiev (14-0, 11 KOs). The hard-hitting 2008 Olympic heavyweight gold medalist from the Universum stable is working hard to become a mandatory challenger as it’s unlikely any reigning champion will accept him for a voluntary defense. “Of course I would fight every world champion and I would be grateful when someone would give me a chance,” said Chakhkiev. “Any champion who chooses me earns a lot of respect. There are definitely easier tasks elsewhere.” Chakhkiev, who already has a win over IBF cruiserweight champion Yoan Pablo Hernandez in the amateurs, is ready to fight for a world title as the earliest available opportunity.

Boxing on the beach in Rome

A boxing event on the beach is hard to conceive in Italy, but OPI 2000 (Salvatore and Christian Cherchi) will make it a reality on Saturday June 16, in Fregene, the most exclusive beach close to Rome, the kind of place where actors, showgirls, wealthy businessmen and other V.I.P.s like to spend their vacation. It’s “Battle at the Seaside”, with three fights for a WBC title.

In the main event, Domenico Spada will face Mariusz Cendrowski for the vacant WBC Silver World middleweight championship. Spada is #8 in the WBC rankings, is a former WBC International middleweight champion, has fought Sebastian Zbik twice losing on points (but the first time the Roman fighter won a close decision, according to most experts), and built a record of 34 wins (18 by knock out) and 4 losses. Spada has beaten Cendrowski in 2008, but he doesn’t underrate his opponent: “Mariusz improved a lot since our first fight – Spada said – and his three wins in Germany two on points, one by ko) prove it”. Cendrowski’s record is made of 27 fights: 22 wins (8 within the distance), 3 losses and 2 draws. (more…)

Four-class national champ Tadashi Yuba (41-7-2, 31 KOs), 159.75, a 35-year-old southpaw six-footer, impressively kept his newly-acquired Japanese middleweight belt as he started his engine early and made short work of top contender Fukutaro Ujiie (17-10-1, 11 KOs), 159.5, at 2:04 of the second round in a scheduled ten rounder on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. Yuba, once a lanky southpaw hard-puncher, seized the national lightweight belt in 2000, the super-light throne in 2002, the welter title twice in 2005 and 2007, and the middle crown this year. Once world-rated ten years ago, Yuba no longer belongs to the international level, but is still a popular crowd-pleaser with his give-and-take gameness and hard-hitting ability. (more…)

Announcement

BPA calls for officiating changes

From: The Boxing Promoters Association
To: United States Boxing Promoters
Re: Referees and Judges

On Saturday night there was another decision rendered in a major fight (Pacquaio-Bradley) that jeopardizes the sanctity of our sport and requires immediate action by the boxing world but especially the boxing promoters. The Boxing Promoters Association (BPA) was formed to protect the integrity of the sport and force action upon the state regulators throughout the United States when warranted. The time has come for the promoters to take real action to remedy the all too often outlandish decisions made by State appointed referees and judges that effectively jeopardize the future of our sport, the fighters and the fans.

Unlike other sports, including MMA, boxing has no figurehead. That has to change now if we intend to bring growth and transparency to the fans. The figurehead in this case has to be the BPA on behalf of the fighters who put their lives on the line and the promoters who invest hundreds of thousands and millions into this sport we all love and cherish. We cannot sit idly by and allow regulators to solely control the most important facet of our sport, other than the fighters, by constantly selecting officials on that states ‘merit system’ or ‘his or her turn to work’ basis. If we as promoters don’t have as strong a voice moving forward, the warranted attacks to our sport we’re seeing and hearing today will eventually lead to the complete eroding of our fan base or worse yet, the sport’s demise.

Bradley-Pacquiao aftermath

By Andreas Hale
Photos by Chris Cozzone

For once, there was no talk about Floyd Mayweather after a Manny Pacquiao fight. Not a single question about the “Dream Fight” was uttered as journalists pounded away at their laptops trying to find the right words for the situation. It was almost a surreal experience since all the talk after any Mayweather or Pacquiao victory surrounded when the two were going to clash. But not on this night.

Why? Because you cannot discuss a Mayweather-Pacquiao fight when Pacquiao has just lost what is considered by many to be a heinous decision to Timothy Bradley at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

“Did that just happen?” people were saying aloud to themselves. Yes, it did. Manny Pacquiao had finally lost. (more…)
