Pacquiao dominates - Broner proves to be a bad loser!







Pacquiao dominates - Broner proves to be a bad loser!


For the now 40-year-old Manny Pacquiao was the first title defense of the WBA belt in the welterweight division. Pacquiao, in a total of eight weight classes for World Cup honors, in July of last year Lucas Matthysse (TKO victory 7th round, note D. Red.) As a champion. Last night, the Filipino southpaw had to deal with multiple title holder Adrien "The Problem" Broner.


From the beginning, Manny Pacquiao presented himself as a more active and above all explosives boxer. Eleven years younger opponents repeatedly meet. (Substantially) Good in the Defensive and the Best of the Defenders of the Time.


In the seventh round Pacquiao first effect in Broner. With a real thump, the challenger has won on the ring ropes, which survived the critical situation only with holding and bracing. In the ninth round brought a crunching left Broner briefly out of balance. However, the former world champion in four different weight classes did not go down.


Manny Pacquiao excelled in speed and explosiveness. His 40 years of life were not noticeable to the 1.66 meter WBA champion! Adrien Broner could not keep up and ultimately made too little to get the victory.


As expected, this was decided unanimously by the jury (117-111, 116-112, 116-112), which is the first successful title defense of the WBA belt in the welterweight division.


In the subsequent winner interview, the old and new world champion made it clear that his career is not over yet. Rematch coming with Floyd Mayweather is uncertain. Adrien Broner, who saw himself as the winner and spoke of a conspiracy, presented himself as a very bad loser.

EC boxing with first heavyweight blast this year


Christian Hammer, who knocked out Michael Wallisch in a spectacular fight for the WBO European Championship on 15 December in the Hamburg Sports Hall, makes his debut in the USA.


"Boxing in New York is something special. After my victory against Wallisch, I only paused over the Christmas holidays and started directly back into training. I'm really hot for the fight "explains the Hamburg-based and managed by Erol Ceylan WBO European champion.

His opponent, the Cuban Ortiz, who has been a professional since 2008 and lives in Miami, will turn 40 in March but is still in top form. "King Kong" as it is called in the boxing scene because of its reach and height has an impressive record: 30 wins, 26 knockouts. His still-hungry former Cuban heavyweight champion made his last success in Los Angeles in early December when he sent American Travis Kauffman on the 10th lap.


"Luis only has one goal," says coach Hernan Caicedo. "A rematch against Deontay Wilder, who defeated him as the only one in the world title fight." For Christian Hammer, the showdown against Luis Ortiz at the Barclay Center in Brooklyn is an absolute highlight. The ECB Champion can climb into the ring with a wide chest. 14 knockouts in 24 professional fights are a business card that can be seen. This is also how promoter Erol Ceylan sees it. "For Christian everything is in it. He brings everything to beat Ortiz and with a victory wins him a very big fight against a champion. "

The Wilder vs. Fury Rematch is nearing completion, says Fury's promoter Frank Warren

article from





 The rematch between Tyson Fury and WBC champion Deontay Wilder is likely to take place in the US in the first half of this year, said Frank Warren, the promoter of Tyson Fury, opposite American boxing TV channel ESPN, on Friday.


Wilder and Fury fought last month at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, in one of the most spectacular fights of the past year for the WBC title. The fight ended in a draw, a verdict that both boxers were not satisfied with. After this fight both Fury and Wilder saw themselves as the winners of this fight. 


"We are trying to set the rematch together at the moment, every boxing fan wants the rematch and especially the two fighters want to do it again," Warren said yesterday in an interview with ESPN. "As it stands at the moment, the rematch will probably take place again in the USA, because here is the money. Tyson was disappointed with the verdict of the first fight, as I was. So many things have to be sorted out before we decide on a venue together, but it will probably be the US where the rematch will take place, probably in the second quarter of this year. "


Warren says that Las Vegas would be one of the options as a venue, that even the second fight of the two unbeaten heavyweights will take place again in Los Angeles, Warren seems to rule out. 


"I do not want to go back to California. Working with the California Boxing Commission was not optimal and there were many things we did not like there, "he said.


For Tyson Fury, the Wilder fight was just the third fight, after his two-and-a-half-year break due to mental health issues and a negative drug test.


Meanwhile, it has been nearly two years since Deontay Wilder and his team attempt to clinch a title-union match against Anthony Joshua, who holds the WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO heavyweight belts, but this failed time and again Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn Wilder offered only a 15% to 85% revenue split in favor of Joshua. It was Wilder who was always ready for this fight and who would have come to England for that as well, but Hearn does not seem to want the fight and keeps bringing other opponents in to Joshua, such as Dillian Whyte and Jarrell "Big Baby "Miller. It almost seems that Hearn Joshua only wants to fight against opponents who are under contract with him, because so it is certain that Hearn in any case remains the promoter of the heavyweight titlist.


Warren pointed out in his interview with ESPN that Joshua's promoter Eddie Hearn, not only in terms of a title-unification match, is now in no hurry or, ultimately, perhaps uninterested, and that he also does not care about a Joshua vs Fury fight is. 


Joshua will probably fight Dillian Whyte or Jarrell Miller next. We all know that, "Warren said. "We're not complicated at all, Tyson is the most straightforward person I've ever met, and he's ready to fight anyone. He went to Germany to fight Wladimir Klitschko and he went to the US to fight Wilder. If you want a fight, you always find a way. Hearn and Joshua do not seem to want that fight. "


And just as Hearn and Joshua Deontay want to avoid Wilder as an opponent, they also want to avoid a fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua. "It's the agenda of Barry and Eddie Hearn that makes things so complicated. Joshua is her money cow and they still want to milk her, "Warren says about the prospect of a fight between Tyson Fury and Anthony Joshua.


Anthony Joshua will face his next fight on April 13 at Wembley Stadium against an unnamed rival. The opponent should be announced by the end of the month, probably it will be Dillian Whyte.

WBC sets new specifications for the weights of the boxers

article from









WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman announced in a press release at the beginning of the year that the association is launching a so-called "Weight Management Program". That's what the boxers, managers and promoters have to do, otherwise they face punishment.


A few novelties, a few tightenings


World Association WBC would like to pay more attention in the future to the weight of the boxers and how to handle them. In times when it is possible, thanks to a highly scientific approach, to lose and to increase quantities of kilos within a very short time, guidelines and rules are now being drawn up which are often intended to prevent unfair and dangerous methods.


Here are the new specifications in the overview:


1. The weight the boxers have on the day of the signature of a fight must be disclosed. The boxers' management is instructed by the promoter to provide the WBC details.


2. The WBC will continue to weigh the boxers 30 and 7 days before a fight, in addition to a weighing 14 days before the fight.


Specifically, it looks like this (in brackets it is stated how far the boxers may be above the limit of the respective weight class)


30 days before (10%)

14 days before (5%)

7 days before (3 &)

3. The promoter, along with the respective commission and WBC supervisor, must ensure that a balance is available on the day of the battle, in which the boxers are rebalanced. If the boxers have increased more than 10% on the previous day, penalties are threatened (see point 4).


4. Non-compliance may result in the following penalties:



Fine of up to $ 5,000 (for points 1 and 2)

Non-staging of the fight

Up to 30% of the stock exchange will be retained (for item 3)

The reason for this procedure is probably first and foremost the safety of the boxers. Recently, Adonis Stevenson suffered severe brain injuries in a WBC title fight, where it can not be ruled out that the dangerous process of weight loss was contributing to this dreadful outcome. Therefore, this can be considered as an important step towards a more rational handling.
