Meng denies Deines in IBF 175lb eliminator

In an IBF light heavyweight final eliminator between unbeaten fighters, Fanlong Meng (15-0, 9 KOs) scored a twelve round unanimous decision over Adam Deines (17-1, 8 KOs) on Saturday night in the Grand Garden Theater at the Wynn Palace Hotel in Macau, China. It was a tactical fight with both southpaws often waiting for the other to do something first. Meng was more willing to engage. Deines had his best moment when he dropped Meng in round eight and had him hurt, but in most rounds he simply wasn’t busy enough. Referee Eddie Claudio took a point from Deines in round twelve for hitting on the break. Scores were 116-110, 115-111, 117-109. Meng is now the mandatory challenger for IBF world champion Artur Beterbiev.

Former interim flyweight world champion Koki Eto moved down to light flyweight to seemingly score a spectacular first round TKO over previously unbeaten two-time Olympian Jeyvier Cintron on Saturday night before 2,912 at Osceola Heritage Park in Kissimmee, Florida.

Former IBF junior lightweight and WBO lightweight champion Jose “Sniper” Pedraza (26-2, 13 KOs) scored a ninth round TKO over Felix Verdejo conqueror Antonio Lozada Jr. (40-3-1, 34 KOs).

Austin Trout: “We need to do that again. That wasn’t right. Let’s do it again. That was after a year layoff. Timing is going to be off. Now that I am a little more active. I need an immediate rematch. Immediate. You never know how the judges are seeing it, but I know 99-91 for (Gausha) wasn’t right. I was definitely in there more than one round. But I didn’t feel good in there tonight. I had to force a lot of things, and I had to close the gap in the later rounds.”

Terrell Gausha: “I felt like I won the fight. That’s boxing sometimes. You don’t get the decision. I have been through a lot this camp. It is what it is,” continued Gausha. “I caught a bad cold the last week of training camp. My father passed away during this training camp. I don’t really care about a rematch with Trout. I just want bigger fights. I’d like to do something different.

WBA poised to help with 2020 Olympic Boxing

With the International Olympic Committee voting next month on removing the AIBA from organizing the bouts at the 2020 Tokyo Games, the World Boxing Association, boxing’s oldest governing body, has offered its vast experience to help oversee boxing for Tokyo 2020.

On Thursday, the WBA laid out its case:

WBA Supports Olympic Boxing

Boxing is one sport. Both in its professional and Olympic discipline. That is why the World Boxing Association (WBA) never opposed the participation of professional boxers in the Rio de Janeiro 2016 Olympic Games. However, when the International Olympic Committee (IOC) questioned the participation of the Fistiana Art for Tokyo 2020, the WBA launched its support for the IOC in its quest to protect athletes.

Thus was born in June 2018 “The Return of Boxing,” the WBA program that was supported by Wladimir Klitschko, Olympic and world heavyweight champion, as well as an ambassador of the oldest body organization governing universal pugilism. Continue reading “WBA poised to help with 2020 Olympic Boxing”

Manny Pacquiao: “I’m the kind of fighter that I don’t talk too much. I do my talking in the ring. I can do a lot of things in that ring. He can prove his words in the ring. I’m going to be a warrior on July 20 and show Keith Thurman what it’s like to be in the ring with me.”

Keith Thurman: “I’m excited to be the guy who shows Manny Pacquiao where the exit is. He’s a legend who’s done great things. But I’ve never lost to a fighter who’s lost seven times. I have no intention of losing this fight and I don’t see him winning in any shape or form.”

Caleb Plant: “Mike Lee may have a financial degree, but in boxing, I have a Ph.D. That’s something he doesn’t know anything about. I came from very rock bottom, where nobody makes it out. If he thinks I’m going to let him mess this up for me, he’s not half as educated as I thought he was.”

Mike Lee: “I’m coming out with everything I have. This is everything I’ve ever wanted. I respect Caleb Plant, but on July 20, I plan on making it my moment.”

Tyson Fury: Wilder the 2nd baddest man on planet

Former unified heavyweight champion Tyson Fury has commented on WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder’s devastating first round KO of Dominic Breazeale via social media.

“I’d just like to say ‘well done’ to Deontay Wilder in knocking out Dominic Breazeale,” said Fury. “I got that prediction quite correct. Anyone who wants to go toe-to-toe with Deontay Wilder will have the same fate as Dominic Breazeale and the rest of his other 40 victims. Anthony Joshua, you’ll get it as well, same thing will happen to you mush. Dillian Whyte, you’ll get it as well. The Bronze Bomber is the most fearsome, most destructive puncher in the heavyweight division. But it’s just a pity that he had to lose to the Gypsy King. Anyone who stands in front of Deontay Wilder, he will knock ’em out. Deontay Wilder is the second baddest man on the planet behind the Gypsy King, a.k.a. Tyson Fury, the number one heavyweight in the world. Nobody can beat me. Can’t be touched.”
