Once-beaten prospect Masaru Sueyoshi (16-1, 10 KOs), 129.75, acquired the vacant Japanese super-featherweight belt when he earned a unanimous decision (97-93, 98-93, 98-92) over 38-year-old Ribo Takahata (13-8-1, 5 KOs), 129.75, over ten hard-fought rounds on Saturday in Tokyo, Japan. The belt had been renounced by world-rated ex-champ Kenichi Ogawa, Sueyoshi’s stablemate, to pave the way for him to win the national title. The 5’11” Takahata’s aggressiveness was a nuisance for Seuyoshi, who, however, was superior in precision, steadily piling up points despite close proceedings.

Unbeaten Shuya Masaki (7-0, 5 KOs), 132, finished Filipino Ciso Morales (19-5-1, 12 KOs), 131.25, with a solid right at 1:56 into the opening session of a scheduled eight.

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum could match Manny Pacquiao or Terrance Crawford with WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn if the Australian defeats WBO #11 Gary Corcoran in December at a venue in Brisbane, Queensland. ”Pac Man” was expected to agree to a November rematch but pulled out due to his Senatorial duties in the Philippines taking priority.

“If Horn beats this kid, we could do the Pacquiao rematch in the first part of 2018 or go right to a fight with [Terence] Crawford. Pacquiao might not fight again. Who knows? Continue reading “Horn-Corcoran update: Pacman, Crawford next?”

The 12th round – From Azerbaijan to the World

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

I would like to begin by expressing our deepest condolences to USA, Nevada and Las Vegas for the tragic terrorist attack which has shaken the world. The boxing world united expressed deep concern and solidarity as we all empathize as most have been in Las Vegas many times as it is and will always be one of the most important cities in the world for boxing. A minute of silence took place and three days of mourning ordered in honor of the victims and their families.

We have finished our 55th annual convention. All those fortunate to have experienced this event have returned home with a warm heart and plenty of memories from what has been one of the best conventions in our history since 1963. The city of Baku in Azerbaijan was shown to the boxing world. It was simply incredible to see its architecture, its cleanliness, modern buildings and rich history all in a land of smiles. It was simply magical, everyone was marveled and the passion and drive was notorious at all times, having accomplished with great success all the meetings and goals set forth during the planning of this convention.

Machimana wins SA heavyweight title

By Ron Jackson

A grossly overweight Osborne Machimana regained the South African heavyweight title in a poor fight when he beat Justice Siliga via unanimous 12 rounds points decision in a clash for the vacant title at the Dr. Molemela Indoor Sports Centre in Bloemfontein on Friday night.

There has been some confusion over the spelling of Siliga’s surname as some sources have his name as Silinga, but as he had Siliga on his trunks we must accept that it is the correct spelling.

The scores were 117-111, 116-112 and 115-113 on the judges’ scorecards. Continue reading “Machimana wins SA heavyweight title”
