Takuma Inoue returns victorious

Unbeaten Takuma Inoue (9-0, 2 KOs), 118, returned to action after a one-year hiatus and defeated three-time world challenger Hiroyuki Hisataka (25-17-1, 11 KOs), 117.5, winning a unanimous decision (98-92, 98-93, 97-94) over ten on Wednesday in Tokyo, Japan. WBC#9/WBA#11/IBF#15 Takuma, the younger brother of WBO 115-pound champ Naoya, was then scheduled to have a shot at the WBO bantam diadem against then reigning Marlon Tapales, but unfortunately suffered a hand fracture during his strenuous training, and it was unfortunately postponed. While waiting for Takuma’s recovery, Tapales forfeited his belt because of his failure to make weight against Shohei Omori.

Takuma, a brilliant speedster, displayed eye-catching hand speed and steadily piled up points, but the bloodied veteran campaigner Hisataka showed his last surge in the final three sessions. Takuma is very much willing to follow his brother’s footstep and gain the world belt next year. Continue reading “Takuma Inoue returns victorious”

WBA elevates Crawford to super champion

The World Boxing Association (WBA) Championships Committee has elevated Terence Crawford to Super Champion after he defeated Julius Indongo to snatch the WBA super lightweight title on August 19 and become the second boxer in history to own the four belts from the four most important sanctioning bodies in the world of boxing. Considering Crawford’s achievement, his solidity as champion at 140 pounds, which make him the best fighter of his weight class, and covered by Article C18 of the WBA Rules, which allows to elevate a boxer to Super Champion under special circumstances, the Championships Committee took the decision to grant this recognition.

However, this does not mean that an interim or regular super lightweight title will be created. The WBA and the Championships Committee maintain their policy of having only one champion per category. Therefore, the WBA mandatory challenger for Crawford will emerge according to the rules of the organization and the existing mechanisms.

EBU Updates

By Marco Bratusch

After former European champion Guillaume Frenois has relinquished his continental belt after two successful defenses in the junior lightweight division in order to take his shot for an IBF eliminator against Billy Dib (a fight that very likely will now be upgraded to the full, vacant IBF title after Gervonta Davis lost it on the scale last Saturday in Las Vegas), the European Boxing Union has called for the two highest available ranked opponents to compete for the vacant European belt. Consequentially, the managers of former titlist Juli Giner (21-2-1, 8 KOs), from Spain, and two-time world title challenger Stephen Smith (25-3, 15 KOs) will have time to sealed a private deal before September 13th, avoiding the purse bid set for that day.
