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.

Horn promoter rips “biased” Atlas

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”

WBO to review Horn-Pacquiao bout

By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing

WBO President Paco Valcarcel has announced that the WBO will review Jeff Horn’s victory over Manny Pacquiao with a panel of five judges with audio muted but the decision will not be reversed.

“We will appoint five (5) anonymous competent Judges from different countries to watch the bout without sound distraction. Then, we will tabulate the results to ascertain clearly which rounds each fighter won using an average scale based on 60, 80 and 100 per cent. This means that 3 of the 5 officials have to agree to determine which fighter won the round.

“The purpose of this review is to be able to give the fans certainty of who was the winner of the bout, even though we do not have the power to reverse the decision of the judges based on discretion and, in this case, we do have a rematch clause on the fight contract.”

The WBO had previously reviewed Timothy Bradley’s victory over Manny Pacquiao in 2012.
