Before Saturday’s welterweight championship fight between Manny Pacquiao and Juan Manuel Marquez, WBC President Jose Sulaiman said he saw little chance of Marquez winning the fight, which was for the belt of the rival WBO sanctioning body, and stated it would be “a miracle” if Marquez is victorious. After Marquez nearly pulled off the upset, Arum referred to Sulaiman as an “asshole” at the post-fight press conference.
In a press release issued today, Sulaiman issued the following statement:
Promoter Arum insulted me in the press with a swear that I wouldn’t dare to type out for respect specially to ladies. I think of Bob Arum is one of the greatest Promoters that my eyes have seen, but also that he has no class, has no idea of what a gentleman is, and if he would be subjected to an open heart surgery, the doctors would find no heart. I have tried all my life to be his friend, and have always supported him specially at his rough times, but unfortunately, he does not know either the meaning of that word. He just can’t help it.

WBC/WBO #1 feather Chonlatarn Or Piriyapinyo (40-0, 24 KOs) successfully retained his WBO Asia-Pacific 126 lb title as he scored a third round TKO over Ryuta Miyagi (21-7-4, 16 KOs) on Tuesday at Khunyuan Airfield in Maehongson, Thailand. Japanese Miyagi who ever defeated two former WBA 122 lb title holders as Ryol Li Lee and Yoddamrong Sithyodthong, started well as he aggressively hunted counterpuncher Chonlatarn, launching hard combinations and dominating all of the first two rounds. The turning point occurred in round three when the champion landed a well-time left hook which dropped his contender, then he viciously hunted his foe and floored the Japanese twice more, forcing referee to stop the bout at 2:57. In other action, ABCO female 126lb title holder Sainamdoi Pitaklo-ngen (11-1-1) scored an eighth round unanimous decision over Kaenpetch Manoprungroj. Thongtaeng Muangsima outpointed Keangsaklek Sakchaichok in a six round non-title bout. Also, Susu Sithjadaeng outpointed Tripetch Sor Poonsawat. This event was promoted by Pariyakorn Ratanasuban of Onesongchai Boxing Promotion. Click here for more photos…

Frank Warren’s show planned for the ExCeL London on Friday 9th December – joint-headlined by James DeGale and George Groves in separate championship fights – has been switched to the Liverpool Echo Arena on the same date. Due to unforeseen circumstances, ExCeL were unable to stage the event due to their Olympic test event commitment and, with no other London venue available, Ian Congdon from the Liverpool Echo Arena jumped at the chance to stage another international boxing event at the city’s premier venue. Last month Liverpool star Tony Bellew and Nathan Cleverly fought a tremendous battle for the WBO World Light-Heavyweight title at the venue in one of the best fights seen in recent years, and in July John Murray and Kevin Mitchell were also involved in a thrilling fight at the same venue. DeGale will take on tough Spaniard Jose Guerrero in the first defence of his WBO Intercontinental Super-Middleweight title, while his great rival Groves will defend his Commonwealth title against a challenger to be confirmed.
