WBO Convention Day 2

By David Finger

Day two of the WBO 22nd Annual Congress continued today in Budapest, Hungary as President Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel issued his President’s report to start things off in the morning. The first order of business President Valcarcel touched upon were the recent situations that the WBO has had to deal within Europe, most notably, the problem arising in fights involving the British Boxing Board (the sanctioning organization for such titles as the British Commonwealth title and the British title). The BBB has taken a position in which that organization will not allow Commonwealth and British title fights to take place when another organization (including the WBO) has sanctioned the fight for a title as well. President Valcarcel remained optimistic that the position of the BBB would be softened over time, expressing hope that the numerous boxing insiders in Great Britain who have expressed their desire to see the BBB drop this policy would be able to persuade the BBB to do so.

Ahmet Öner survives shooting

Promoter assaulted in Hamburg

German promoter Ahmet Öner has been shot down in Hamburg at 10.15pm local time on Tuesday night. The CEO of ARENA Box-Promotion was leaving the office of a business partner in Hamburg when two men fired at him three times. The assassins had waited for Öner behind his car when a security light exposed them in the dark and they started the fire. One bullet hit Öner in his left leg before he and his two companions could get back into the building to call the police. The shooters ran away. Öner had to undergo surgery only two hours after the assault. The projectile was successfully removed from his thigh. “I am okay”, stated Öner after the operation. “I have been attacked before but this was the first time somebody cowardly ambushed me in the dark to shoot at me. I hope it will be the last time as well. I know that wherever there is success in the world there is envy as well. I just cannot understand how somebody could go this far and try to kill me. This is insane.” (more…)

Adamek-Golota presser

By Michal Koper/www.bokser.org

The press conference to announce the Polish “fight of the century” between Andrew Golota and Tomasz Adamek was held in Warsaw today. “Adamek invited me to dance, so I could not well refuse,” the evidently relaxed Golota (41), four-time challenger for the heavyweight championship of the world, was saying about the October event. “One shouldn’t really box at my age, I’d rather be 12-13 years younger. Still, Bernard Hopkins is 44, so I still have everything ahead of me.” Adamek seemed more tightly wound. “I was always a warrior, and shall remain a warrior. If anything changes about that, I’ll be quitting this business. I’m going to win against Golota, and I’m going to win against Hopkins next January,” the IBF junior heavyweight champion announced. “Yeah, sure!,” was Golota’s ironic riposte. “I weigh in at 270 pounds, but at my age you usually gain weight. Adamek is a regular powerhouse, weighing in at as much as 200 pounds…”

When asked whether there is any ‘bad blood’ between Adamek and him, Golota quipped with a smile, “I love the guy.” Adamek’s response: “I don’t love him, since he’s male, and I’m Roman Catholic.” The Golota – Adamek fight will take place on October 24 in Lodz. The event will be produced by the Polsat television network. Click here for more photos…

Marco “Captain” Huck cannot wait to erase the darkest hour of his career and finally become world champion. The European cruiserweight champion (25-1, 20 KOs) comes face-to-face with WBO cruiserweight champion Victor Emilio Ramirez (15-1, 12 KOs) at the Gerry Weber Stadium in Halle on Saturday night. Today both fighters showed their skills in front of 1.000 fans at L+T Fashion House in Osnabruck. “When I saw Ramirez in the ring, I wanted to fight him straight away,” Huck said. “I cannot wait for Saturday. I have worked hard with my coach Mr. Wegner and I am confident I will leave the ring victorious.” While Huck did three rounds of pad work, Ramirez wrapped up his session when he spotted Ulli Wegner in the stands. “He is a tough guy,” Wegner lauded. “But Marco has really worked hard and drawn the right conclusions from his loss against Cunningham in December 2007. He can fulfill his dream and become the next German champion but he needs to stick to our game plan.” For more details and photos click here…
