WBC Convention Day 2 Notes

Arreola dropped from rankings for TV cussing

During a preliminary discussion on day 2 of the 47th WBC World Convention in Jeju, South Korea, President Jose Sulaiman made clear the WBC’s intentions to enter the world of amateur boxing. The idea of supporting amateur boxing through funding, instruction, sponsoring tournaments, leading toward a “World Cup,” was commented on by the gathered board of governors and promoters first with mixed feelings. While many felt it was an endeavor to support, others felt it to be an uphill battle with the existing amateur boxing powers that are AIBA, USA Boxing as well as other national amateur organizations throughout the world. Commented President Sulaiman, “The WBC is a reformer. AIBA is a monopoly. If AIBA wants to shake hands- fine. If AIBA wants war- they’ll have war!” (more…)

WBA world heavyweight champion Nikolai Valuev arrived at the Nuremburg Airport late Sunday afternoon. “I’m looking forward to the fight on November 7th,” said Valuev. “My preparation was very intense and focused, and I want to defend the world title.” Normally airline flights aren’t so comfortable for the seven-foot heavyweight. “But this time was different,” he reported. “I got a place in the plane with plenty of extra legroom.” With that, the 36-year-old world champion and his trainer Alexander Zimin caught a VIP shuttle to the hotel where a visit to the sauna was quickly on the agenda.

Valuev’s challenger David Haye is expected in Nuremburg on Monday morning. On Tuesday, the two fighters and their trainers are scheduled to participate in a public workout at 1PM at the Mercado Mall (Carl-von-Linde-Strasse 5). Things could get interesting if they meet face to face, as Haye has rarely missed an opportunity to belittle the “Russian Giant.”

The Valuev-Haye fight is being distributed by Integrated Sports in the United States by Integrated Sports for live viewing at 3PM ET/12PM PT on both cable and satellite pay-per-view via iN Demand, DIRECTV, DISH Network, TVN, Viewer’s Choice and Bell TV for a suggested retail price of $24.95, A replay will be shown that same night at 9PM ET/6PM PT.

Rios to face Estrada

By Johnny B’

Professional boxing returns to the State of Kansas on Friday as undefeated lightweight Brandon Rios (22-0-1, 16 KOs) takes on Lorenzo Estrada (3-15-1) in what looks like a mismatch on paper. However, if you look closely at the record of Estrada, it tells a different story. In Estrada’s last bout, he went the distance with Frankie Archuleta 25-7-1 and as the underdog in a 2008 bout Estrada upset Willie Villanueva who was 9-0 at the time. In addition, one of Estrada’s three wins was a hard fought 12 round decision over tough Texan Jacobo Gomez. In the co-main event, light-middleweight Bernardo Guereca (15-8-1) of El Paso, Texas, takes on New Mexico’s Joseph Gomez (16-2-1). The show takes place at the Garden City Convention Center and is promoted by Robert Gonzalez & Bad Boyz Boxing.

Shibata wins OPBF 154lb belt

By Joe Koizumi

Unheralded Akio Shibata (13-5-1, 7 KOs), 154, surprisingly captured the OPBF and Japanese super-welter belt as he pounded out a close but well-received unanimous decision (116-114, 16-113 and 117-113) over defending titlist, southpaw veteran Yuki Nonaka (18-8-2, 7 KOs), 154, over twelve upset rounds on Sunday in Osaka, Japan. Nonaka had both his regional and national titles at stake, and Shibata took all with a single victory. Shibata was aggressive from the start, effectively throwing direct rights without leading lefts to the southpaw champ. Inexplicably the champ remained less aggressive only to yield the initiative to the willing mixer all the way. Promoter: Amagasaki Promotions.

The gymnasium features two full size boxing rings and the latest boxing equipment on the four floor venue. Boxers will have their own accommodation on the third floor of the four floor gym.

Potter said, “We are confident that Leon Moore who has signed with our promotional company, can win a world title and we will give him that opportunity as soon as possible. He defeated former IBF 108 pound champion Mauricio Pastrana in September which was a very good win.

“Our 140 pound boxer Saddam Kietyongyuth, 26 years, is a outstanding talent. He has been out of action for several months due to injury but he will be back in action soon. He also looks to be a future world champion.

“Former world WBA super featherweight champion Yodsanan Sor Nantachai is back training and will fight soon. He has had a great career defeating such outstanding boxers as Steve Forbes, Lamont Pearson and Lakva Sim in WBA title bouts. We will welcome boxers from around the world to train out our gym.”
