Inoue welcomed at WBO Convention in Orlando

Report and photos by Joe Koizumi

WBO junior bantamweight champion Naoya Inoue (8-0, 7 KOs), a Japanese sensation worldwide, acquired his second world belt by demolishing highly regarded Omar Narvaez in his only eighth professional bout last December, but had his hand badly hurt to be obliged to take nearly ten months for recovery. Inoue, still 22, has attended the WBO convention in Orlando FL to receive a warm welcome by many attendants. Some reporters have made interviews to the young champ, as follows:

Welcome to the convention. How is your hand? Have you already recovered from the injury?

My hand is 100% all right. No problem.

Please remember your fight with Omar Narvaez, and what’s your memory on the title-winning fight?

Everything went well with our fight plan. As I respected Narvaez, it was my great pleasure to be able to fight him. (more…)

Illinois Boxing HOF Dinner sold out

By Johnny B’

The new Illinois Boxing Home of Fame, an outgrowth after boxing was added as a category to the Illinois MMA HOF two years ago, has completely sold out their first HOF awards dinner.

From Pete Hoffman & Mike McNamara: Many thanks to the huge response from so many of you that is already making our Glen Ellyn November 14th first annual Illinois Boxing Hall of Fame banquet, such a huge success. We have sold 400 tickets and are completely sold out. How “sold out” are we? We are so sold out that there will be no tickets available at the door the night of the event. So, if you haven’t already purchased a ticket, or are not confirmed sitting at a table purchased by someone else, and that someone else hasn’t told you they have a ticket for you, we sadly will not have a ticket for you either. So please do not show up trying to purchase a ticket at the door. We changed venues twice to accommodate what grew to be a huge crowd. It will be a great night, and we are looking forward to seeing all of the honorable inductees, their families and friends and many supporters, plus some special guests. Thank you all.

2015 WBO Convention: Day One

logo-convention2015
By David Finger

The 28th annual WBO Convention kicked off this morning in Orlando Florida in front of a near capacity crowd at the Hilton Hotel conference room. The event kicked off at 8:30 AM with members from around the world taking time to introduce themselves to each other, the opening ceremony, and the invocation before Secretary Jose Izquierdo gave his report on the NABO and WBO Intercontinental. Although the agenda originally scheduled for the President’s Report to kick off the event, the committee agreed to shake things up somewhat to allow President Valcarcel to make his presentation in the afternoon.

For Secretary Izquierdo and the NABO, 2015 proved to be another successful year since its change in leadership in 2014. Under Izquierdo the NABO has seen unprecedented growth thanks in part to a successful “re-branding” campaign that has given the NABO a new life and a new role in the organization. In 2014 the NABO sanctioned 12 fights for the NABO title and 18 fights for the WBO Intercontinental title and saw its rebranding initiative produce rapid and tangible results. Notable a new webpage, a new logo, and a new NABO championship belt design have raised the profile and the appeal of the NABO. Izquierdo was pleased to announce that the NABO sanctioned fights on the undercard of some of the biggest fights of the year including the “fight of the century” between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather as well as the undercard of the Gennady Golovkin versus David Lemieux fight earlier this month.

Rios: Bradley is my ticket back to the top

Photos: Chris Farina/Top Rank

Former world champion Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios (33-2-1, 23 KOs), his trainer Robert Garcia and manager Cameron Dunkin hosted a media workout on Tuesday at Robert Garcia Boxing Academy in Riverside, California. Rios will be challenging WBO welterweight champion Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley, (32-1-1, 12 KOs) next week on HBO at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas.

Brandon Rios: We are ready for the best Tim Bradley, the one who beat Juan Manuel Marquez. I have been in camp in Riverside, California for three months. This is the Camp Zone. We brought in three kinds of sparring partners — a boxer, a brawler and a boxer-brawler. I want to get back on top in boxing. Bradley is in my way. Bradley is going to be my ticket back to the top.

Robert Garcia: The way to beat Tim Bradley is to put on pressure in the fight and try to knock him out. We plan to cut off the ring and turn this into a real fight. We are not concerned with his change in a chief trainer because Bradley always comes in top condition and is ready to fight. Joel Diaz did a good job with Bradley.

Cameron Dunkin: “Brandon looks sensational – strong, in shape, ready to fight now – he’s a real fighter.”

Rigondeaux fate with WBO to be decided tomorrow

By David Finger

WBO President Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel told members of the WBO that a “resolution” from the world championship committee would be forthcoming tomorrow morning at 8:30 AM on the matter of WBO junior featherweight champion Guillermo Rigondeaux. The WBO issued an order to “show cause” letter dated October 7, 2015 (which has been posted on their webpage) to Rigondeaux, expressing concern over Rigondeaux’s lack of activity as champion and citing WBO rules which mandate a champion must defend his title in a nine month time frame. Rigondeaux has subsequently filed his response, but it had yet to be decided as to what the status of his championship would be. However, the wait will end tomorrow for both Rigondeaux and boxing fans.

Khan says he’s frontrunner to get Pacquiao fight

By James Slater

Just who will superstar Manny Pacquiao fight in his “final” bout, tentatively set for April of next year? According to Bob Arum, Pac-Man will likely face one of a shortlist of three: Amir Khan, Terence Crawford or Timothy Bradley (assuming Bradley comes though okay against the dangerously determined Brandon Rios next month).

There is still some talk that Pacquiao remains both interested and hopeful he may be able to secure a rematch with the “retired” Floyd Mayweather Junior, but of the three names Arum mentioned, Khan says he is the likeliest to get the gig.

Speaking with BBC Sport today, Khan said the following:

“I am the frontrunner. Manny Pacquiao makes a good story because we’ve been training partners and I’ve been with his coach Freddie Roach. There’s a big chance of the fight happening, it’s all about making sure my team is on point with the deal and they need to make sure they get the fight that I want.” (more…)

Euro Notes: Culcay returns against Hogan; Nielsen + Markussen = Kessler

Jack Culcay (20-1, 10 KOs) will defend his interim WBA World Light Middleweight title against Dennis Hogan (22-0-1, 7 KOs) on December 5 at the Inselparkhalle in Hamburg, Germany. The fight was initially scheduled to take place on September 26 in Berlin as part of Team Sauerland’s ‘Next Generation’ event at the Max Schmeling Halle, but due to a spate of injuries the show was cancelled. ‘Golden Jack’ will now face the Irish-born Australian in the champion’s adopted hometown of Hamburg.

The domestic clash between super middleweights Patrick Nielsen and Rudy Markussen on December 12 at the Brondby Hallen in Copenhagen, Denmark, is already nearing a sell out. Promoter Nisse Sauerland: “The reaction has been absolutely huge. The sales are on par if not faster than the Kessler events we’ve done in Denmark. Half the tickets were sold in the first 48 hours and we are now looking at ways to increase the capacity.”

As always, Provodnikov expects to put on a good show. “I’ve seen Rodriguez’ fights. He’s a very strong fighter, and unbeaten. This will be a brawl.”

Garrett Wilson and Pedro Martinez set for hard-hitting Philly rematch

Story & photo by John DiSanto – PhillyBoxingHistory.com

Pro boxing returns to South Philadelphia Friday night with the launch of a new fight series set to showcase local ring talent. After the death of the Blue Horizon in 2010, the Philly boxing scene has struggled to maintain a consistent fight schedule. Promoters and venues have come and gone, and the effect has been fewer fights within the city limits of Philadelphia – once a booming boxing capital. So every time a new promoter announces plans to kick off a new series of fights, local fight fans hold their collective breath, hoping that the plans will not only stick but flourish.

Hard Hitting Promotions is the latest comer to enter the sparse field. Friday’s card at the Sheet Metal Workers Hall is the company’s first offering in Philadelphia. However the upstart promotional firm, headed by Will Ruiz and Manny Rivera, almost took a knockout blow before the first bell ever sounded. (more…)

Former world champion Joachim Alcine (35-7-2 , 21 KOs) will return to the ring for the first time in nearly 17 months when he faces unbeaten Jermell Charlo (26-0, 11 KOs) this Saturday night in a ten round junior middleweight clash at the NRG Arena in Houston, Texas to be aired live on NBCSN. The fight tops another edition of Al Haymon’s Premier Boxing Champions series.

Boxing fans last saw Alcine in action vs. former world title challenger Delvin Rodriguez. Entering the fight as a huge underdog, Alcine turned back the clock earning a hard fought draw. There were some concerns regarding Alcine’s eye a few months after the fight. He says the eye is fine and he is cleared medically to fight. The 39-year-old Alcine’s focus now is on defeating 60:1 favorite Charlo this Saturday. But beating the odds is nothing new to Alcine. Four years ago he upset David Lemieux. (more…)

However, Browne now finds himself as next in line again due to Oquendo having to withdraw from an October 17 date due to a shoulder injury sustained in sparring. Both Browne and Hatton Promotions are keen to begin negotiations with Chagaev’s team regarding a clash to held either before the end of the year or in early 2016, but are still waiting on the WBA issuing a clear resolution.

In the first round, Gallimore’s left jab frustrated Ryskeldiev who became the aggressor early on in the opening half of the fight. With a tremendous amateur background of nearly 200 fights, many ringside observers expected Ryskeldiev to finish Gallimore.
