  • Welsh Boxing - Bocsio

    Am starting a thread on Welsh Boxing to bring the latest news on the thriving sport in Wales.

    It will also help me keep a track for when I do the Welsh Boxing Awards for Ringnews24, at the end of the Year.

    Great news of a bill in Cardiff. Kennedy one of the hottest ticket sellers here.

    Craig Kennedy & Andrew Selby set for May 26th Cardiff bill

    Cyclone Promotions are delighted to announce the rescheduled date for the vacant British cruiserweight title fight featuring Cardiff’s undefeated Craig Kennedy and Blackpool’s former British and Commonwealth title challenger Matty Askin, at Motorpoint Arena Cardiff on Friday May 26th, live and exclusive on Channel 5, sponsored by Maxi-Nutrition.

    TICKETS TO KENNEDY vs ASKIN ARE ON SALE NOW AND ARE PRICED 42 AND 62, AVAILABLE FROM MOTORPOINTARENACARDIFF.CO.UK & Tickets for concerts, theatre, football, family days out. Official Ticketmaster Site OR CALL 029 2022 4488.

    VIP TICKETS PRICED AT 102 ARE ON SALE NOW AT Home

    This vacant British Cruiserweight title fight was originally scheduled for March 11th before Matty Askin was forced to pull out due to ligament damage to his right hand. Now that Askin has been given a clean bill of health the rescheduled fight on Friday May 26th promises to be one of the most entertaining domestic dust‐ups of 2017. What’s more, both Kennedy and Askin are equally confident they can take home the prestigious Lord Lonsdale belt on Friday May 26th.

    Also featuring on this big night of boxing in Cardiff on Friday May 26th will be one of the hottest prospects in British boxing, Barry’s undefeated British flyweight champion Andrew ‘AC Superstar’ Selby. World-class talent Selby, the younger brother of IBF featherweight king Lee Selby, is on the cusp of joining his sibling at the summit of world boxing. On May 26th at the Motorpoint Arena Cardiff the lightening quick twenty-eight year old Selby will box a highly ranked opponent to be named shortly, and will be looking to make a big statement ahead of a mooted World title tilt later in 2017.

    In the main-event hometown hero Craig Kennedy will be looking to become only the second Welshman to win the coveted British cruiserweight title when he finally gets his shot against Blackpool’s dangerous Matty Askin on May 26th. Both men will fancy their chances in this intriguing vacant British cruiserweight title bout, with Askin having the edge in terms of experience, while the undefeated Kennedy is carrying some career best form into this vacant British title bout.

    Cardiff’s Craig Kennedy is not only one of the best cruiserweight’s in the UK, he’s also undoubtedly one of the most popular. The IBF International champ, 16(8) – 0, will hope to benefit from his fanatical home support when he faces off against proven operator Askin on May 26th.

      Liam Williams vs Liam Smith: It’s only just begun


      The dust has settled from the weekends boxing, and I’ve just about got that bitter taste out of my mouth, the taste that’s been there since the “head butt heard around the valleys” went undetected. Liam Williams (16-1-1, 11 KOs) was in cruise control, out-boxing the former WBO world champion Liam Smith (25-1-1, 14 KOs). Then Williams’ eye was on the receiving end of a head clash that forced the contest to reach a dramatic controversial conclusion at the halt of the ninth round.

      Kennedy’s impressive undefeated record includes victories over Liverpool’s former British and Commonwealth title challenger Courtney Fry and Belgium’s big-punching Joel Tambwe Djeko, both of whom were outpointed by the talented Cardiff boxer, in June 2015 and May 2016 respectively.

      My initial reaction was that Smith had to be disqualified, failing that; it should go to the scorecards for a technical decision and as Williams was up on the scorecards, he’d be announced the winner. Alas, the head butt was missed and it was not to be for the Welshman. The sight of Smith celebrating his shallow victory was like being on the receiving end of a body shot, similar to the one he suffered at the hands of Saul Alvarez in Texas last year. I felt sick; I slumped into my chair with my head hung low scrolling through twitter retweeting every insult aimed at Smith and his team with a grimace spread across my face. Nicola Adams was in the ring; I’m a big fan of her and female boxing and couldn’t wait to be at her professional debut. The way I felt in that instant, I couldn’t give a shit.

          IBF featherweight world champion Lee Selby wanted a much bigger opponent, but he is now set to fight his mandatory challenger next.

          Selby was scheduled to make his mandatory defense against Jonathan Victor Barros on January 28th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. The bout was part of the undercard to the Carl Frampton vs. Leo Santa Cruz rematch.

          Prior to the weigh-in, Barros was pulled from the fight after the Nevada State Athletic Commission refused to grant him a license. Barros failed their medical tests after coming up positive for Hepatitis C.

          Barros took additional tests in Las Vegas and they came up negative for Hepatitis C.

          Selby finally returned to the ring on March 4th, and stopped Andoni Gago inside nine rounds at the O2 Arena in London as part of the David Haye vs. Tony Bellew undercard.

          That fight was Selby's last under his promotional agreement with Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport.

          Selby is still working closely with powerful adviser Al Haymon, who had Tom Brown of TGB Promotions to represent his interests at the purse bid..

          TGB, on behalf of Selby (24-1, 9 KOs), submitted the winning bid of $601,000, while KO International Promotions, for Barros (41-4-1, 22 KOs), put in a bid of $600,000. The split is 75-25 in favor of the champion.

          Both fighters have to submit signed contracts in 15 days and Brown has 90 days to stage the fight, on or before July 13. The date and location is unknown at the moment.

          The 32-year-old Barros ranked first by the IBF, won the mandatory right to face Selby after coming away victorious in a final eliminator which took place in Tokyo on October 3, by majority decision, over local fighter Satoshi Hosono.

          Barros was a featherweight champion under the WBA when he defeated Pan-American Irving Berry by TKO in the seventh round on December 4, 2010 in Mendoza. Then retained the title in the Luna Park in October of 2011, and then lost it on points when he faced Panamanian Celestino Caballero.

              Re: Welsh Boxing - Bocsio

              Frank Warren has tweeted that a deal has been done for the rematch between Liam Williams and Liam Smith. No details on venue, date yet.

              After a 6 year absence Cardiff's Henry Janes (10-20-2) returned to boxing in 2016 - losing 3 fights, Since then he has remained unbeaten in five - four of those results coming on the road.

              Two Welshmen have made the move to Australia and are plying their trade there. Merthyr's Kerry hope and Cwmcarn's Jamie Weetch. Super Welterweight Weetch (9-2) fights out of Lacey's Gym in Perth. He's won seven in a row.
              Kerry Hope (23-9) has been campaigning at Super Middleweight and is based in Brisbane, Queensland.

                          Not done any kind of writing this year plus my laptop seemed to die but is back. Anyway, popped to Gary Lockett's gym on Tuesday to interview a Welsh prospect, who is fighting tonight. Did it as a podcast interview rather than written. Known Rhys since he was a kid, he's from the same amateur gym as Liam Williams. The same village as Tommy Farr. His Dad, Mansell Edwards also chips in - have known Mansell for years and he's been a tremendous support to his boys boxing. Rhys really is one to watch.
