The WBA opens its doors to Olympic Boxing

The World Boxing Association becomes a Professional and Amateur organization

The World Boxing Association (WBA), in search of “The comeback of Boxing,” opens its doors to Olympic pugilism to achieve a true union in this sport and bring back the honor that this discipline had in the past. To achieve this goal, the WBA has summoned, through a letter, all National Boxing Federations to join this initiative. The intention is to achieve the systematic development of the sport, by the hand of specialists in the area. All this in favor of the two pillars of this discipline: the athletes and the fans.

“… As boxing is going through its issues there is another huge threat looming on the horizon: its negative public image, corruption, bureaucracy and continuing dysfunction of all parties involved, including amateurs and professionals of the sport of Boxing. Now they might lose participation in the Olympics. If this absurd decision were to take place, it would be an unprecedented setback for the sport”, reads the letter issued by the organization and signed by Gilberto Jesús Mendoza, President of the WBA, and Wladimir Klitschko, former World Heavyweight Champion and former Olympic Champion.

Tyson Fury: Pianeta bout all business

Tyson Fury has vowed to abide by team orders and keep it strictly business when he turns to the second chapter of his comeback story against Francesco Pianeta in Belfast on August 18. Fury took showboating to a new level in the first of his return bouts against Sefer Seferi at the Manchester Arena in June, first setting the mood for the evening by planting a smacker on the equally game for a laugh Albanian.

Tyson now reveals that, for his duel with former world title challenger Pianeta, his trainer Ben Davison wants him to have his serious head on and not play to the expected sell-out crowd at Windsor Park, which also plays host to Carl Frampton defending his WBO world interim featherweight title against Luke Jackson as well as the WBC world flyweight title challenge of Paddy Barnes to the champion Cristofer Rosales.

“We saw the joker in the last camp, we saw the showman, the entertainer,” explained the 29-year-old. “Ben wants a serious approach this time and that is what he’ll get. All business in Belfast! Continue reading “Tyson Fury: Pianeta bout all business”

Photos: Mikey Williams/Top Rank

WBC interim super lightweight champion Regis “Rougarou” Prograis asked to fight in his hometown of New Orleans for a long time. After 21 bouts and more than six years as a pro, his wish is finally coming true. The Prograis homecoming will occur Saturday evening at the Lakefront Arena, where he will defend against fellow unbeaten Juan Jose Velasco live on ESPN. At Neyow’s Palace, located only a couple miles from the French Quarter, the fighters gathered for the final press conference.

Regis Prograis: “It’s a dream to come here. The Lakefront Arena, I grew up right around the corner from there. Like, in the car, you’d get there literally in two minutes. Just to be headlining there, that’s super important to me. I’m honored for it. I have to hide my excitement because I still have to fight. {Velasco} is going to try and knock me out, you know what I mean? So I gotta go out there and do my thing. I’m super excited. I might not show it, but I’m really excited to be fighting in my hometown, and not only that, my whole goal is to bring big-time boxing back to New Orleans. Not only a Regis Prograis fight, but one day we may get {Terence Crawford, who was seated in the audience} up here to fight. You know, one day, maybe me and {Crawford} might fight here at ’47. I’m focused. There are no distractions for me. This is normal. This is a part of the game.”

Juan Jose Velasco: “I’ve had a tremendous training camp, and I am thankful for this opportunity. I am going to take advantage of it. Regis is a great fighter. To be a great champion, you need to fight the best fighters. And I want to prove on Saturday night that I’m elite like him.” Continue reading “Prograis-Velasco Final Press Conference”

Tyson Fury opponent named: Francesco Pianeta

Former world heavyweight champion Tyson Fury will take on former Euro champ and two-time world title challenger Francesco Pianeta at Windsor Park in Belfast, Northern Ireland on August 18. Fury (26-0, 19 KOs) returned from two-and-a-half years out of the ring with a dominant stoppage of Sefer Seferi in Manchester on June 9 and aims to continue his march back towards the top against Pianeta (35-4-1, 21 KOs).

Pianeta has twice challenged for world honors, losing to Wladimir Klitschko in 2013 and to Ruslan Chagaev two years later, but he has recently dropped two of his last three.

Promoter Frank Warren said: “The Seferi fight is history and Pianeta is a far better operator than him. His level of opposition tells you that. Tyson had been out of boxing for a long time and Pianeta is a good opponent for what is Tyson’s second fight back after his break. Continue reading “Tyson Fury opponent named: Francesco Pianeta”

It allowed me to get the opportunity to fight for a world title. I’m grateful for that. I’m also grateful that the NSAC didn’t allow me to fight against Golovkin because it led to this world title.

“It’s been about 10 months since my last fight. But it served me well,” said Machado. “It allowed me to get some rest and to work on some technical details I needed to work on. I had been boxing for 15 years straight, so it was a necessary rest…for this camp, I worked on strategy and technique. I had more time to travel to Los Angeles and work with Freddie Roach. During this camp, I really got to see why he is a Hall of Fame trainer. I got to see why he’s had so many world champions. On July 21, you will definitely see a new and improved Alberto Machado.”

Lewis-Klitschko exhibition rumors prove false

Numerous media outlets reported that former heavyweight champions Lennox Lewis (52) and Vitali Klitschko (46) would return to the ring in an exhibition rematch during the annual WBC Convention, which will run from September 30 to October 5 at the Fairmont Grand Hotel in Kiev, Ukraine. However, those reports were news to Lennox Lewis. His team informed the WBC that Lewis has not even been contacted about it yet.

Championship boxing is back in “The Big Easy” on Saturday at the Lakefront Arena. Native son Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (21-0, 18 KOs) defends the WBC super lightweight diamond belt against fellow unbeaten Juan Jose Velasco (20-0, 12 KOs), while unbeaten lightweight Teofimo Lopez (9-0, 7 KOs) goes against once-beaten William Silva (25-1, 14 KOs) for the vacant WBC Continental Americas lightweight title.

Fighters from Saturday’s card worked out for the media Wednesday at New Orleans Boxing Club.

Regis Prograis: “I’m not going to say I go in looking for the knockout, but I go in to try and hurt my opponent. Boxing is a brutal sport, and that’s how it’s supposed to be. I feel like I’m a killer. Of course, I’m nice. I can smile with ya’ll, but when I get in there, I’m a killer. When I hit somebody and I know they’re hurt, then I know I got them. My whole thing is if I hit them and I see some type of weakness in their body, or I see something going, then I know automatically I got them. It’s over.”

Juan Jose Velasco: “The pressure is not an issue for me. The pressure is on Regis. I’m not expected to do much, which is fine by me. I’ll prove the experts wrong. I feel like everyone is pulling for him, that it’s a gimme fight for Regis. Everyone can talk, but on Saturday, he’ll have to fight.” Continue reading “Regis Prograis: I’m a killer”
