Gatti coroner renders decision

A Quebec coroner’s report released today on the 2009 death of ring legend Arturo Gatti says “there is no clear evidence of foul play in Mr. Gatti’s death.” According to the Canadian Press, the report confirmed that Gatti died a “violent death” with the probable cause of death listed as “asphyxiation by neck constriction,” but did not contradict the ruling of Brazilian authorities that Gatti’s death was a suicide. Gatti’s former manager had hired experts who had declared Gatti’s death a homicide after a private investigation. There is an ongoing legal dispute between Gatti relatives and his widow over his assets.

Man killed after TV boxing match

A man was shot and killed around 12:30 AM Sunday morning outside the San Jose Fiesta Mexican restaurant in Nashville, Tennessee, which is owned by long time boxing manager/trainer Ramon Arellano. There was a large hispanic crowd on hand to support Mexican boxer Alfredo Angulo in his HBO televised fight vs James Kirkland Saturday night. After the fight, words were exchanged between two patrons coming in and out of the restaurant simultaneously that escalated to where one of the patrons shot the other in the chest resulting in his death. The incident happened outside of the restaurant in the parking lot. “We have never had anything like this happen before,” said Arellano. “We are family operated business and we support boxing and televise all the major fights here for the public to see.

Arthur not seeking Burns rematch

Alex Arthur has confirmed that he is not seeking a rematch with fellow Scotsman and newly crowned WBO interim lightweight champion Ricky Burns and will now officially move up to the light-welterweight division. Back in February 2006 at the Meadowbank Sports Centre in his home city of Edinburgh, Arthur defended his European, Commonwealth and British super-featherweight titles against Burns via a unanimous decision points victory.

There has been talk of a rematch between the pair since the Coatbridge man captured and made three successful defences of the WBO super-featherweight title which was previously held by Arthur. The speculation has intensified after Burns out-boxed Australian Michael Katsidis in London to make a big impact in his debut as a lightweight. Arthur said: “I just want to state that I want to and would love to fight Ricky for the interim title but I am no longer capable of safely making lightweight. (more…)

Pacquiao to answer all doubts

Story by Andreas Hale

Manny Pacquiao’s rosy career has one major thorn in its side.

No, it’s not the “Money” Mayweather thorn that has overshadowed any relevant boxing conversation. It’s the “Dinamita” thorn known as Juan Manuel Marquez. No matter how many foes he obliterates and championship titles he collects, the Filipino has been haunted by his closely contested battles with the Mexican that still leaves fans wondering if the two fighters would have switched spots on the pound for pound rankings if Marquez would have won an extra round or two in and took home victories in both of their fights. Instead, Pacquiao sits at a satisfying (albeit far from definitive) 1-0-1 in his two fights with Marquez over the past seven years. (more…)

WBA convention day 2

Photos and story by Boxing Bob Newman

Day 2 of the 90th annual WBA convention in Donetsk, Ukraine got underway on a somber note once again, as President Mendoza asked for a moment of silence to pay homage to former heavyweight champion “Smokin” Joe Frazier, who passed last night at age 67. Frazier was recently diagnosed with liver cancer, as well as having struggled with diabetes for many years. Also, a moment of silence was observed for former WBA vice president Shigeru Kojima, who passed on August 26th of this year.

A review of minutes of yesterday’s Day 1 opening meetings was reviewed.
Jose Emilio Graglia represented the Cordoba (Argentina) Federation in speaking to the situation regarding anti-doping in Argentina. While the WBA’s stance is that anti-doping needs to be conducted in it’s title fights, if not universally for all fights, Graglia responded that the testing group simply never showed up to conduct the tests at the recent Caballero-Barros fight.

Don King on Smokin’ Joe

Legendary promoter Don King, who promoted Joe Frazier in the finale of Frazier’s phenomenal trilogy with Muhammad Ali, 1975’s “Thrilla in Manila,” made the following statement from his South Florida home after learning last night of the death of his longtime friend:

“Smokin’ Joe Frazier was the embodiment of what a great heavyweight champion and person should be. He was a great gladiator. When Smokin’ Joe came to the ring, you knew you had someone who was coming to fight. I was proud to have known and promoted him, and I was honored to call him a friend.

“The courage Smokin’ Joe showed in “The Thrilla in Manila”—answering every Ali onslaught with an equally withering response—will remain in the hearts and minds of boxing fans around the globe forever. It was one of the most dramatic fights in history. Although the warrior inside Smokin’ Joe wanted to answer the bell for the 15th and final round, his chief second and friend Eddie Futch acted as more than a corner man to step in and refuse to let him continue, so he could live to fight another day and smoke ’em some more.

“One cannot underestimate the contribution Smokin’ Joe and Ali made to progress and change by creating the space, through their talent, for black men to be seen, visible and relevant. The Thrilla in Manila helped make America better.

“Not only was he a great fighter but also a great man. He lived as he fought with courage and commitment at a time when African Americans in all spheres of life were engaged in a struggle for emancipation and respect. Smokin’ Joe brought honor, dignity and pride for his people, the AMERICAN people, and brought the nation together as only sports can do.”

After learning of the death of boxing legend Joe Frazier on Monday, fellow Philadelphia native and two-time middleweight and current light heavyweight champion Bernard Hopkins shared his thoughts on the famed champion’s passing. “My reaction was I expected it to come, but the denial of it coming is something that people that know Joe and have been around him tried to block out. It was not shocking, because I knew he had been sick for a while, but now it is real and he is really not here with us anymore.

“Ali and Joe Frazier’s rivalry is the king of all rivalries. You cannot mention Ali’s name without Frazier, and you cannot mention Frazier without Ali. Their three fights were the three most exciting fights of the century. Joe is a person who will never be imitated or emulated. His legacy in boxing will never be duplicated, especially during his era. There will be only one Smokin’ Joe Frazier. (more…)
