Khan-Brook on the backburner

Amir Khan says a grudge showdown with domestic rival Kell Brook won’t come until 2018 at the earliest. With both fighters coming off KO losses and injuries, Khan told Sky Sports he and Brook won’t be fighting next. “If we get a couple of wins, I think it will be a massive fight,” Khan said. “It will be a big fight now, but it will be a massive fight if we wait maybe another fight.” Khan plans to return in December in the UK against someone other than Brook, but stated he still wants Brook “100%.”

Cotto vs. Sadam Ali, not Margarito

Looks like future Hall of Famer and current WBO super welterweight champion Miguel Cotto will face Sadam Ali in his final fight this December at Madison Square Garden in New York City. Cotto’s hated rival Antonio Margarito had been lobbying to get that fight, but Golden Boy President Eric Gomez told Primera Hora Tuesday that a verbal agreement has been reached for Cotto to face former USA Olympian Ali on December 2, although no official announcement will be made until the contract is signed. The report also states that Danny Garcia, Mikey Garcia, Lamont Peterson and James Kirkland turned down the fight. Margarito apparently wasn’t under consideration.

Floyd Mayweather: I’m Not Scared of GGG

By TMZSports.com

Floyd Mayweather got into a shouting match with a heckler on the streets of NYC on Monday night — after the fan accused Floyd of running from Gennady Golovkin. The video ends with Floyd’s bodyguard threatening to choke a dude out. It all started after Floyd and his TMT squad left the Knicks game at MSG — when a very loud fan started screaming at Floyd that he’s scared of GGG. Floyd yelled back to explain why he’s not scared … more yelling ensued. Floyd tried to jewelry shame the heckler — asking how many diamonds he has on his watch. As for GGG, he previously told TMZ he wants to fight Floyd BAD — and guaranteed he would knock Mayweather out cold.

Sueyoshi wins vacant Japanese 130lb belt

By Joe Koizumi
Photos by Naoki Fukuda

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 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.

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.
