Conceicao: I want to face the best

Unbeaten 2916 Olympic gold medalist Robson Conceicao (10-0, 5 KOs) is calling for a world title shot. “This is my second bout fighting eight rounds and I felt great,” proclaimed Conceicao after decisioning Joey Laviolette in a lackluster fight. “I always train hard and I am always in great physical condition. I feel like I’m prepared to go the 12-round distance. I want to face the best. I’m ready to battle against the champions of the junior lightweight division. I want Tevin Farmer, Miguel Berchelt, Alberto Machado, or Gervonta Davis. I don’t care who it is. I want a title!”

After two close and brutal rounds, Berchelt got the upper hand when he rocked the aggressive Roman repeatedly in round three. Berchelt floored Roman twice in round six. Berchelt dropped Roman again in round nine and got the stoppage with a fierce follow-up barrage. Time was 2:58.

“This was the toughest of my four world title defenses,” Berchelt said. “I give my respect to Mickey as an opponent. The key was my body work. He kept getting up and fighting with all of his heart. He’s a valiant Mexican warrior.”

Roman stated, “I feel fine. I gave it 100 percent. I’ll be back.”

Results from Stockton, Calif

By Lucas “Lukie” Ketelle

Toscano Boxing Promotions returns with their second show from the Stockton Civic Memorial Auditorium on November 2nd with cruiserweight Blake “The Beast” McKernan picking up a six-round decision over Jorge Escalante.

In the co-main event, middleweight Quilisto “Kilo the Kid” Madera got a third-round knockout over Jose Joan Valenzuela. Madera boxed early and walked Valenzuela into a crisp jab that stunned Valenzuela followed by a short left hook that sat him down. Continue reading “Results from Stockton, Calif”

31st WBO Convention ends

The final day of the 31st annual WBO Boxing Convention concluded on Thursday November 1 at 8 AM. Although all attendees were eagerly anticipating the upcoming ratings commission discussion, which promised this year to be particularly contentious, as well as the gala banquet scheduled that night, there was still some other important business that transpired that morning. Perhaps most noteworthy, President Francisco “Paco” Valcarcel gave his President’s Report, which included a special thanks to Panama and the El Panama Hotel. He also reminisced fondly of the 2003 WBO Convention which also took place in Panama, as well as those members who were there and who sadly are no longer with us. WBO founder and the first President of the WBO, Luis Bautista Salas, also took a moment to remember his reign as President and how much Paco has meant for the WBO and how much he accomplished as President of the WBO since taking over, which prompted the attendees to give President Valcarcel a standing ovation.

Wbo Kazakhstan

President Valcarcel then discussed having other nations apply for membership with the WBO. Valcarcel also welcomed a new attendee, Nurshin Tanat of Kazakhstan and executive director of SP Boxing. Tanat presented the President with a gift from Kazakhstan as well. Continue reading “31st WBO Convention ends”
