The 12th Round: Solid facts for the future of Boxing

By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

For the first time since my father climbed a ring to fight in an official bout, 70 years ago, a Sulaiman participated in a boxing match. My nephew Jose Manuel “Chepi,” went into the ring and won 2-1 his first amateur fight. This was a dream that me and my brothers always had, to fight in the ring and Chepi one of the eleven male grandkids of Don Jose did it! It’s during moments like this, that one can really appreciate later what the sport of boxing is. The intimidation before the fight as the opponent had a good group of friends supporting him while Chepi was with his dad and one friend. The nerves to climb and go through the ropes knowing that when that bell rings it’s only you and your opponent. Then the aftermath, my nephew told me that even though he won, the most important moment came when he went to his opponent to shake hands and embrace.

By Robert Coster

WBA #6 welterweight Carlos Adames (11-0,10 KOs) is being called the Dominican Republic’s hottest young boxer, a relentless, hammering puncher who has battered whoever has stood in his way.

Kubo to defend WBA 122lb belt against Roman

By Joe Koizumi

Photo: Boxing Beat

Newly crowned WBA super-bantamweight champion Shun Kubo (12-0, 9 KOs), an elongated southpaw, will defend his belt against mandatory challenger Daniel Roman (22-2-1, 8 KOs), US, in Kyoto, Japan, on September 3. It was announced by Shinsei Promotions this week in Kobe, Kubo’s home turf. Kubo captured the belt as defending titlist Nehomar Cermeno retired on the stool after the tenth round in April. Roman acquired the right to have a compulsory shot at the title by defeating Adam Lopez by a TKO after the ninth session of a WBA eliminator in Atlantic City this January.

Also, Shinsei Gym announced that Ryuya Yamanaka, Kubo’s stablemate, will challenge WBO 105-pound champ and southpaw compatriot Tatsuya Fukuhara in Kumamoto, Japan, on August 27. Fukuhara, then WBO interim titlist, recently elevated to the full champ with the relinquishment and retirement of veteran Katsunari Takayama, who strongly wishes to return to the amateur ring and acquire the Olympic gold medal since he already had four belts of the as many major organizations, while the Japanese amateur association bitterly objected to his ambition and turned down his application. But that’s another story than Kubo’s initial defense and Yamanaka’s first title crack.

Fury gets through exhibition with no cuts

WBO #1 heavyweight contender Hughie Fury boxed a six round exhibition with journeyman Kamil Sokolowski (4-10-2, 1 KO) on Saturday night at the Copper Box Arena in London. The boxers didn’t wear headgear. As expected, Fury was in command the whole time and didn’t sustain any noticeable injuries. The 22-year-old Fury hadn’t seen action since April 2016 and wanted to get some ring time. The bout was changed to exhibition status because the WBO wouldn’t approve a tune-up fight for Fury.

WBO champion Joseph Parker watched Fury from ringside and the fighters did have a quick, friendly chat. They will meet again on Tuesday at a press conference in Manchester to kick off promotion for their September 23rd clash at the Manchester Arena.

In the main official boxing match, British welterweight champion Bradley Skeete (27-1, 12 KOs), who called out Manny Pacquiao recently, outpointed Dale Evans (13-4-2, 4 KOs) over twelve rounds.

By Ray Wheatley – World of Boxing

Dean Lonergan who co-promoted the WBO welterweight title bout when Jeff Horn caused a major upset victory over Manny Pacquiao last weekend at Suncorp Stadium Brisbane with over 51,000 fans in attendance was critical of ESPN broadcaster Teddy Atlas, who refused to accept the decision and called the sport “corrupt.” Lonergan stated that Atlas was in the tank for Pacquiao.

“A big reason the American people are questioning the result of the fight is that Teddy Atlas was simply biased in his commentary,” Lonergan told the Daily Telegraph newspaper. Continue reading “Horn promoter rips “biased” Atlas”
