WBO Convention Day 1!

By David Finger

The World Boxing Organization 22nd Annual Congress kicked off today at the Sofitel Hotel in Budapest, Hungary where numerous boxing insiders, WBO officials, and a handful of boxing celebrities paid tribute to the passing of three legends of boxing. As WBO president Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel began the general assembly in the morning, a tribute was paid to recently deceased former Puerto Rican champion Jose Torres, legendary Hungarian contender Lazlo Papp, and former WBO vice resident Stan Gallup (who, like Torres, passed away earlier this year). The touching memorial featured a short video of Torres, as well as one of Gallup (whose charm and quick wit could be felt in the brief video tribute), and prompted a round of applause from both the audience and the members of the WBO.

Usui defeats Kaonah

By Joe Koizumi

Slick-punching prospect, JBC#5/OPBF#14 bantam Kinshiro Usui (18-2, 8 KOs), 120.25, pounded out a unanimous nod (79-74, 79-75 and 78-75) over OPBF#8 Thai 118-pound champ Kaonah Chuwatana (24-19-3, 19 KOs), 120, over eight sizzling rounds on Monday in Tokyo, Japan. Usui, who had failed to win the national belt from unbeaten world-rated Kohei Ohba via split verdict this March, connected with more accurate combos to the counterpunching Thailander, who continually attempted to score with a solid right cross at a time. Though it was a close affair, Usui dominated more rounds by a slight margin except in the seventh, when Kaonah landed effective rights to the face and was in command. (more…)

American TV is willing to spend more money on American fighters, so I hope Cloud wins this.

Tom Mishou passes

By Jose E. Santiago

Tom Mishou, former Secretary of the Georgia Athletic & Entertainment Commission, passed away early this morning after a long battle with cancer. Mishou was a hard nosed commission representative overseeing boxing during his stint. Always focused on the betterment of the sport he presided with fairness for everyone around him, but also extremely firm when anyone broke a rule. He’d give you fair warning once or twice, but if he found you purposely breaking a rule or skating the law, he’d have no problem publicly reprimanding you. He was extremely good at his job and loved the sport of boxing. Tom would often go out of his way to make sure that the media would be accommodated at events and was a devout reader of Fightnews.com. He was a friend of all in the boxing industry and will be remembered by all for his smile, engaging personality and work ethic. Fightnews.com will miss him.

On the same card, former Commonwealth welterweight champion Craig Watson (14-3, 4 KOs) not unexpectedly got back in the win column beating professional loser Matt Scriven (13-54, 1 KO).
