Arum: 65-35 split is about right

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum cannot understand why Eddie Hearn regards a 65-35 split as not reasonable for a unification bout between WBA, IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua and WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker.

“I’ve been in this sport for decades and I can tell you that in a unification fight like this that split is more than fair,” said Arum, who has a promotional interest in Parker. “Joshua has two belts and Parker has one – so 65-35 is about right. I can’t see why Eddie Hearn doesn’t see it as reasonable. Continue reading “Arum: 65-35 split is about right”

Tyson Fury Update

Hennessy Sports Statement: On 30 October 2017, Robert Smith of the BBBoC blamed Tyson Fury for delays to his anti-doping hearing. He said to Sky Sports, “We [the BBBoC] are ready to go, UKAD are ready to go on our behalf, and the independent panel are waiting for a confirmed date. It’s up to them [Team Fury] now [to propose a date].”

Then, on 23 November 2017, Mr Smith reiterated to Sky Sports, “The reason why this has taken so long, so I have been led to believe, is because Mr Fury’s legal team could not agree a date for the recommencement of the hearing. They obviously now have, and the hearing will recommence [in December 2017].”

Mr Smith is incorrect. Continue reading “Tyson Fury Update”

Hearn: A 65%-35% split is NOT happening

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker could be defending the championship against former WBA heavyweight champion Lucas “Big Daddy” Browne now that negotiations for a unification bout against WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has stalled. Joshua promoter Eddie Hearn has stated he will not be paying Parker the 35% of the revenue stream that was demanded by David Higgins for a Parker-Joshua bout.

“There is a deal there to be done with Joseph Parker, which makes him a lot of money,” said Hearn. “A win gives him a massive eight-digit payday for the next one. If they really think they can knock out Anthony Joshua, they should take the fight…It’s not a million miles away, but it’s not happening at 65-35.”

WBO champ Kimura to defend against Igarashi

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Sumio Yamada

The third man means a referee in boxing terminology, but WBO flyweight champ Sho Kimura was the third champ whose participation in the New Year’s Eve tripleheader was announced last—separately on Tuesday. Kimura (15-1-2, 8 KOs) scored an upset to wrest the WBO belt from two-time Olympic gold medalist Shiming Zou in Shanghai this July, and will make his initial defense against top contender Toshiyuki Igarashi (23-2-3, 12 KOs), former WBC 112-pound titlist and also ex-Olympian, along with the title defenses of Ryoichi Taguchi and Hiroto Kyoguchi.

Zou claimed a direct rematch with Kimura to the WBO, but his request was turned down and Kimura decided to face the compatriot Igarashi, four years his senior at 33. It will be a competitive encounter of the aggressive champ and the skillful southpaw speedster. Since both are durable and determined, the combat will probably go the distance, which may be good for the TBS television that may prefer a longer drawing of TV audience’s attention.

Taguchi-Melindo/Kyoguchi-Buitrago announced

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Boxing Beat

Out of the world title tripleheader on New Year’s Eve in Japan, the first two were announced by Watanabe Promotions on Friday. WBA light-flyweight champion Ryoichi Taguchi (26-2-2, 12 KOs) will participate in a unification bout with IBF ruler Milan Melindo (37-2, 13 KOs) of the Philippines in a sensational encounter at the Ota-City General Gymnasium in Tokyo.

Taguchi, an elongated boxer-puncher, captured the WBA belt by lopsidedly defeating Alberto Rossel three years ago, and has technically improved to keep his belt against tough opposition on six occasions. Melindo, from Cebu, once failed to win the IBF belt on a technical decision loss to Javier Mendoza in Mexico in 2015, but stunned the Japanese crowd with an unexpected first-round demolition of defending titlist Akira Yaegashi (conqueror of Mendoza) last May. Since then, Milando experienced a tough defense in eking out a split verdict over Hekkie Budler this September. Taguchi says, “I respect Melindo’s real power, but wish to unify the two belts to prove my strength.” Continue reading “Taguchi-Melindo/Kyoguchi-Buitrago announced”

Tevin Farmer: A Very Special Thanksgiving

Upcoming world title challenger Tevin “American Idol” Farmer (25-4-1, 5 KOs) is spending this year celebrating a very special Thanksgiving. On December 9, the 27-year-old will challenge for his first world title against Kenichi Ogawa (22-1-0, 17 KOs), of Tokyo, Japan, with the vacant IBF junior lightweight championship on the line, at Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas and live on HBO.

Slated for his first world title opportunity after having compiled an extraordinary 18-bout winning streak over the last five years, Farmer was also the victim this past July 29 to an act of senseless violence. When a neighborhood domestic dispute erupted involving Farmer’s brother, Tevin intervened to play peacemaker. The incident left him shot in the right hand and his brother shot in the face.

Han-Cresop postponed

IBF female featherweight champion Jennifer Han suffered an ankle injury late last week and as a result, has forced promoters to reschedule her title defense against #1 contender Lizbeth Cresop. The bout was originally set for December 1 at the El Paso County Coliseum.

Once doctors determined that Han would be available to fight in late January, her promoter, Luigi Olcese of Pandora International, moved to reschedule the event and settled on January 27 at UTEP’s Don Haskins Center. According to Olcese, he and the Han team had no choice but to reschedule the event. “We’re very disappointed to have to reschedule, but there is no way Jennifer (Han) can fight on December 1st,” noted her New Jersey-based promoter.

Late Results from Atlantic City

Last Saturday night, Thomas LaManna took home a ten round unanimous decision over rugged Samuel Amoako in the headline bout of an eight bout card at The Claridge Hotel in Atlantic City. The victory earned LaManna the LBF Intercontinental title. LaManna worked behind a strong jab and constantly had Amoako in a defensive mindset. LaManna kept up what was working for him as he used a stiff jab to set up hard body shots. LaManna out on continuous pressure for which Amoako had no answer for. LaManna, 147 lbs of Millville, NJ won on all cards by the shutout margin of 100-90 and is now 25-2. Amoako of Silver Spring, MD via Ghana is 23-17. Continue reading “Late Results from Atlantic City”
