Holyfield gives up WBF belt

Evander Holyfield has decided to relinquish the WBF heavyweight title in order to challenge Alexander Povetkin for the WBA “regular” World title in December. The legendary American informed WBF president Howard Goldberg personally. “I have been in talks with Evander Holyfield over the past couple of weeks. He has secured a December fight against Povetkin for one of the WBA titles and informed me that with much regret he would have to relinquish his WBF world title,” said Goldberg. “Evander and I have always had an open relationship and he expressed his great pride in having fought for and having held our WBF world heavyweight title and that he will always keep the WBF close to his heart. It has always been our philosophy at the WBF to allow our champions to grow, be it with us at the WBF or whether they are offered opportunities elsewhere. We have never, and will never, prevent our fighters from growing – that is not who we are.”

Fortuna crushes Lorenzo

By Robert Coster

Hot prospect Javier Fortuna (16-0, 12 KOs) won the vacant WBC Youth Featherweight title with a spectacular first round knockout of countryman Geysi Lorenzo (11-2, 2 KOs) on Monday night in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The light punching Lorenzo played into Fortuna’s hands by recklessly opting to brawl in the center of the ring and dearly paid the price. With a vicious hook to the body, Fortuna, the local idol, sent Lorenzo crumbling to the mat for the full count.

On the undercard, visiting middleweight John Jackson (11-0, 10 KOs) of the Virgin Islands, son of former world champion Julian Jackson, proved that he certainly has inherited his famous father’s vaunted power by impressively disposing of veteran Jose Soto (24-9-2, 13 KOs) in two rounds. Jackson connected a thunderous uppercut that put an end to the action.
