    • Re: General Boxing (worth mentioning, not thread worthy)

      Earlier today Teiken announced a brilliant double header for October 22nd as a press conference held at the Hotel Grand Palace in Tokyo.

      The main event of the announced show will see WBC Bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka(21-0-2, 16) battle against #1 contender Suriyan Sor Rungvisai (37-5-1, 16). This bout will be a mandatory for Yamanaka and will also be his 7th defence since winning the title, against Christian Esquivel, less than 3 years ago. For Suriyan this is a chance to get back to the top of the boxing world following his short reign as the WBC Super Flyweight champion. It's worth noting that Suriyan's Flyweight reign came to an end in Japan when he battled Yota Sato in his only previous bout in Japan.

      Although the announce of Yamanaka/Suriyan has only been made official today it's long been rumoured so the odds are both have had a lengthy training camp prior to today's official announcement.

      The other part of the double header for the show will see former 2-weight world champion Takahiro Ao (26-3-1, 12) fight against former 2-time Super Featherweight champion Juan Carlos Salgado(26-3-1-1, 16).

        • Kid Galahad wins Boxing Writers' Club "Young Boxer of the Year" award

          Kid Galahad wins Boxing Writers' Club "Young Boxer of the Year" award

          Junior featherweight Kid Galahad of England is one of the top prospects in boxing and he has been recognized as such by the Boxing Writers' Club, which has awarded him its prestigious "Geoffrey Simpson: Young Boxer of the Year" award. Last year won by BJS.

          Galahad, who has won the traditional British, Commonwealth and European titles, will pick up his hardware at the organization's annual dinner next month in London. The 24-year-old Galahad (18-0, 9 KOs), a pro since late 2009, won his most recent fight last week, a 12-round rout of Adeilson Dos Santos.

          "This is a great honor for Kid Galahad and it's richly deserved," promoter Mick Hennessy said. "He has won British, Commonwealth and European titles in the space of three fights and has truly established himself as one of the very best [junior featherweights] in the world. It's now only a matter of time before he becomes a world champion."

          Galahad has been able to develop a following because his fights have been airing on free TV on England’s Channel 5.

          The list of past winners of the award, which dates to the 1950s, is loaded with fighters that went on to become major stars and champions, including Randy Turpin, Ken Buchanan, John Conteh, Barry McGuigan, Frank Bruno, Nigel Benn, "Prince" Naseem Hamed, Joe Calzaghe, Ricky Hatton (there's only one!) and Amir Khan.

            • Worlds oldest boxer back for grudge match

              Mansfield boxer Steve Wards incredible story continues as he won his comeback fight in emphatic fashion to secure a shot at the British Masters title on 8th November in what will be a grudge match.

              Steve, the worlds oldest boxer at 58, was the headline act as fight fans packed Mansfield Civic Centre for a 12-fight semi-pro bill, promoted by Body and Soul gym owner Roger Brotherhood.

              And the man known as The Legend says the title fight will be personal against Darren Snow - a boxer he respects but who has upset him enough to don the gloves again.

              I was forced out of retirement really, he said. I was quite happy retired, though Ive not got to the pipe and slippers stage. But I was doing some judging and one guy, who is a champion, was doing an exhibition with two lads, who had done some sparring, but were fighting in public for the first time.

              All he had to do was flick his hand out, move around and make himself look good. But he put one of them down and bumped the other one around and I didnt like what I was seeing. I couldnt let it go as, after 49 years, I dont like to see my sport come to grief.

              So I said to them I think its time the Legend came back out of retirement and had a chance to fight him myself.

              I held belts when I retired but I still had to have a final eliminator which I won in the second round. Now we will fight on 8th November and the big guns are out.

              It will be a war. I do respect Darren Snow he is a good fighter and it will not be easy as I am 30 years older than him.

              This will be my last fight, though. I can still get up and run 15 miles before doing two hours in the gym. But now I need a sit-down afterwards and its my body telling me its getting harder.

              In his first fight for over three years last week, Ward made an explosive entrance, being guided to the ring by four women in Union Jack bikinis to the thumping soundtrack of Hearts on Fire from the Rocky 4 film.

              And the ending was not unlike a Sylvester Stallone script as Wards punches wore down and stopped game opponent Dwayne Allen from Wigan early in the second round.

              Ward, representing Team Body and Soul on the night, will now fight for the vacant British Masters cruiserweight title against Snow on the gyms next show, at the Civic Centre on 8th November.

              In the nights other British Masters title eliminator in Mansfield, super-middleweight Ian Clarke edged past Lions Parks David Mayhew after four rounds.

              An exciting fight, the decision couldve gone either way but judges scoring ringside picked sharp shooting Clarke, who will go to battle with Sleafords hard-hitting Dan Cooper for the Masters belt, also on 8th November.

              Body and Souls well-supported Charlie Chiverton made a successful return to the ring as he stopped Team Prides Scott Aitken in the second round. There was also a second round stoppage win for Body and Souls Nigel Gibson who halted
              Manchesters Liam Crawley in a heavyweight clash and Nick Golubs beat Stockports tough Will Cairns in the third.

              Body and Souls Josh Boucher was narrowly outpointed by Hard Knocks accomplished Myles O Connor, and battle-hardened Henry Rooney was stopped in the final stages of an all-action bout against talented Jerrall Spencer from Hunters Gym.

              Body and Souls Danny Goodwin put in a measured performance to outscore Birminghams experienced Andrew Costnett and Wes Dolan decisioned Conner Tongue from Fighting Fit in the fight of the night.

              Elsewhere, Body and Souls Adam Gostowski stopped Dylan Edwards with a barrage of punches in the first round and heavyweights Dom Allcock and Fighting Fits Darren Snow boxed a draw, as did Body and Soul gym mates Martin Day and Simon Stuart who opened the show with an entertaining exhibition bout.

              Tickets to Body and Souls blockbuster November show are available on 01623 481881 and are expected to sell out quickly.

                I'm not a fan of semi-pro boxing. This is just an accident waiting to happen.

                  --- Hany a big strong kid but way out of his class when Roy knocked him out early in the first round with a liver shot.

                  Poor Popkorns can only dream of such stuff not that this result shatters the current status quo in the Cruiser division.

                  *** BTW, noticed I could not add this video of the KO. New limited features or just a snafu to be corrected?

                    --- Denis Lebedev started off in what was shaping to be the worst fight of the year before flipping the switch on undefeated Pole, Pawel Koldziei, 15th in boxrec.

                    It was a straight left that dropped him hard. Credit he got up fast but walked away from the ref and by the time he turned around, the count was up and he was no closer to the ref than when he turned around.

                    One min ad to start the fight which is a complete snoozer until the one punch ending:

                      Joichiro Tatsuyoshi's second son Juuki is set to take part in his public pro-test bout later this year. The plan is for him to make his debut early next year under the guidance of Osaka Teiken

                      Ken Shiro will return on October 19th Vs a TBA, the youngster (real name Kenshiro Teraji) defeated Heri Amol on debut in very impressive fashion

                      Crison Omayao will return to Japan in November to battle Genki Hanai. Omyao is best known for his losses to a debuting Naoya "Monster" Inoue and "Monster of Chukyo" Kosei Tanaka

                      Yaegashi is set to get to 108 whilst Inoue is set to move to either 112 or 115

                      Kentaro Masuda will not get his rematch with Ryosuke Iwasa this year, instead he'll defend his Japanese title in December

                      Roman Gonzalez is rumoured to be having a fight in Tokyo on November 22nd, several opponents have been rumoured including Rocky Fuentes. Odds are Takashi Miura will be on the same show!

                      Knockout CP Freshmart Vs Carlos Buitrago will take place at the Buriram raceway which in the future will be used for F1!

                            Pitbull Gomez Re-signs to GBP

                            Junior welterweight Frankie Gomez, one of Golden Boy's top prospects, re-signed with the company on Friday.

                            It was an important move for promoter Oscar De La Hoya as Gomez is one of the few potential top fighters the company has who is not controlled by adviser Al Haymon.

                            Gomez (18-0, 13 KOs), who was a star amateur, has had his ups and downs as a pro but he is only 22 and seems to be turning the corner. Despite his perfect record, he has had legal issues and also had his dedication called into question by the company because he came into some fights out of shape. But those things seem to be behind the East Los Angeles product.

                            Gomez, nicknamed the "Pitbull," is coming off his biggest victory, a shutout 10-round decision against fringe contender Vernon Paris on July 25.

                            "This is clearly a huge opportunity for me because extending my contract with Golden Boy Promotions tells me that they have full confidence in me and I'm 100 percent loyal to Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions," Gomez said. "I have the experience and I'm ready to face bigger challenges and win my first world title."

                            De La Hoya was happy to keep Gomez -- with whom he shares a Feb. 4 birthday with -- with Golden Boy.

                            "Frankie Gomez is a natural talent and that's why I have no doubt that he'll be the next superstar and next world champion from East Los Angeles," De La Hoya said. "The truth is that we are very happy to continue promoting Frankie and help him to continue on his quest for a world title."

                              Frankie Gomez is a legitimate contender? He looked every inch the amateur last time I saw him - wailing away with no concern for defence.
