WBO VP Duggan: Parker deserved the win

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

WBO Vice-President John Duggan said the twelve round decision for WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker over WBO mandatory contender Hughie Fury last Saturday in Manchester was correct. “I think he won the fight,” Duggan told Newshub. “I think he won a close fight. Just because the score was wide, doesn’t mean it wasn’t close. With the way boxing’s scored, you can have an extremely close fight and have a boxer win every round by a close margin. That happens quite a bit. I thought the score (118-110) was regular, and I thought the 114-114 score was somewhat unusual. [Parker] deserved the win. He boxed courageously in a hostile environment.”

Fury’s promoter Mick Hennessey stated after the fight that they plan to lodge a protest with the WBO over the result.

Charlo: I’m always going to have that chip on my shoulder

On another hot day in Dallas, WBC super welterweight champion Jermell “Iron Man” Charlo strolled into the R&R Boxing Club to lace up for 12 spirited rounds with IBF welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr., as both are trained by former fighter Derrick James. Charlo is three weeks out from fighting the powerful Erickson Lubin, considered one of boxing’s hot young prospects, on Saturday, October 14 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY and shown live on Showtime Boxing.

Charlo, out of Houston, had other ideas when he KO’d Dallas native Charles Hatley in a WBC mandatory back in April as he was looking at a potential showdown with Puerto Rican superstar Miguel Cotto. No longer the young gun at 27, Charlo is hitting his prime and was hoping with his first world title under his belt, he could seek bigger paydays with the likes of Cotto who has indicated he will retire after one more fight in December. The WBC had other ideas and instead required a second mandatory against the dangerous southpaw Lubin, who will have just turned 22 at fight time and possesses knockout power in both hands.

When Andre Ward recently retired it opened up the WBA, WBO and IBF light heavyweight titles and when Badou Jack vacated his WBA “regular” title the division became even more wide open. 175lb contender Sullivan Barrera was very confident that he would get a shot at one of the vacant belts.

Briggs targets Tyson Fury for comeback

Open Letter from Shannon Briggs to Tyson Fury

I was reading Frank Warren’s online column today and the veteran promoter struck a nerve with his stance on the unfair treatment former world champ and colorful character Tyson Fury is getting from UK boxing authorities. Now doing the Limbo can be an amusing dance but living in Limbo, a boxing purgatory is no fun at all. Being prevented from making a living is odious and that is why I now propose a match for those who may be clinically insane or slightly maladjusted.

You think McGregor and Mayweather hype was over the top? Imagine me and my “Gypsy Brother” Tyson going jaw to jaw. The only thing better than the prefight circus would be the in ring war we would engage in, two former world heavyweight champions who remain armed and dangerous.

Nico Hernandez overcomes larger opponent

2016 Olympic bronze medalist Nico Hernandez had to overcome a major obstacle to remain undefeated at Hartman Arena in Palm City, Kansas. Opponent Kendrick “Uprising” Latchman outweighed regular flyweight Hernandez by more than 10 pounds when the two fighters entered the ring because Hernandez’ scheduled opponent, Basyzbek Baratov (2-1-2), abruptly pulled out of the fight after the weigh-in due to a contractual disagreement.

Hernandez weighed in at 113 pounds, Baratov was 112, which was the contracted weight. The Kansas Athletic Commission, however, automatically allows one-pound over for all non-title fights. Baratov refused to fight but Latchman agreed to fight at a 125-pound catchweight. Hernandez gained four pounds and the fight was on. Continue reading “Nico Hernandez overcomes larger opponent”
