REPORT: OGAWA STRIPPED OF IBF TITLE

Farmer vs. Dib likely to fill the vacancy

According to the Japan Times, IBF 130-pound champion Kenichi Ogawa of Japan has been stripped of his title and suspended for six months for failing a doping test.  The positive test was taken around the time Ogawa won a very controversial decision over Tevin Farmer to claim the vacant title. The suspension was issued yesterday by the Nevada Athletic Commission.  Farmer certainly deserves a shot at the once-again vacant title, and it appears likely he will be matched against former featherweight titlist Billy Dib to fill the vacancy. Farmer's promoter Lou DiBella told Boxingtalk's Greg Leon, "we're working on [Farmer vs. Dib] now and trying to figure out where exactly the fight would be. Billy Dib's people want to do the fight in Australia and obviously we don't, but the fight is going to happen and it's a great opportunity for Tevin to avenge that terrible decision as well as the failed drug test afterwards." --Scott Shaffer

GGG SEEKS IBF EXCEPTION TO FIGHT MARTIROSYAN
By G. Leon

GGG Promotions managing director Tom Loeffler confirmed to Boxingtalk that undisputed middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin is about ante up and pay the IBF a non-refundable $20,000 with the hopes of getting an exception to take part in a bout vs. Vanes Martirosyan without getting stripped (GGG also holds the WBC championship and WBA super championship). If the IBF were to grant this exception Golovkin would not be stripped of his title, it simply wouldn't be on the line for the May 5th Martirosyan bout, but it's likely that undefeated top contender Serhiy Derevyanchenko would be deemed the immediately due mandatory challenger.  This would also mean that the IBF title will not be on the line if the Alvarez rematch gets rescheduled for September 15th, because according to IBF rules reigning champions are limited to one exception request . Once filed, Derevyanchenko promoter Lou DiBella will have 72 hours to object to Golovkin's request. Remember where you heard it first!

NEW OPPONENT FOR THABISO MCHUNU

Press Release: Tommy Oosthuizen’s ongoing legal battles have forced Golden Gloves to finally pull him from his proposed June 23rd fight against Thabiso Mchunu. Despite having wanted to help “Tommy Gun” get back on his feet, promoter Rodney Berman said that there were too many obstacles, not least a court date set down for next week. Berman has subsequently signed Ricards Bolotniks of Latvia to meet Mchunu, a crossroads fight for the South African.  Bolotniks (11-4-1) comes with good form. He recently scored a stoppage win over Alejandro Emilio Valori and before that lost a split decision to 24-1 Micki Nielsen.

ELIEDER ALVAREZ NEXT FOR SERGEY KOVALEV?

Longtime WBC mandatory challenger Eleider Alvarez (23-0) will finally get his crack at a world title, only he won't be fighting Adonis Stevenson,  the WBC light heavyweight champion who hasn't made a mandatorydefense   since November 2013. Groupe Yvon Michel, the Canadian boxing promoter that promotes the light heavyweight contender, will hold a press briefing tomorrow "to discuss the upcoming WBO light heavyweight world title fight between Eleider Alvarez and Sergey Kovalev."  The fight appears headed for July or August. Kovalev (32-2-1) is the WBO champion, who last fought in March, a defense of his title against overmatched Igor Mikhalkin.  Alvarez is the long-time WBC mandatory contender who has not received a title shot from that organization, and appears to have been denied his rights under WBC rules.  Kovalev had been rumored to fight Marcus Browne of Staten Island, New York, but appears to have understandably bypassed Browne for a title shot against Kovalev. --Scott Shaffer and G. Leon

NSAC SUSPENDS CANELO FOR SIX MONTHS
By G. Leon

Earlier today the Nevada State Athletic Commission unanimously approved a motion to suspend Saul "Canelo" Alvarez for six months.  Alvarez admitted  to the banned substance clenbuterol being in his system, but maintains his positive results were caused by contaminated meat.  Because the suspension was tied to February 17th, the date of Alvarez's first positive drug test, he will be eligible to fight again on August 17th.

DID GGG'S LAWYER'S LETTER KILL THE CANELO REMATCH?
By G. Leon

Somebody got some splainin to do!

For all intents and purposes the eagerly anticipated rematch between world middleweight champion Gennady "GGG" Golovkin and Sauel "Canelo" Alvarez, the biggest fight of 2018 thus far, was dead in the water once Alvarez tested positive for clenbuterol. Don't get me wrong, Canelo is to blame for his positive result. Eating meat in Mexico while you're undergoing random drug testing makes Canelo and his trainers look as dumb as a bag of rocks. But it was Ron DiNicola, Golovkin's attorney, who made sure of there was no saving the fight. When Alvarez's positive test results were made public on March 5th, Golden Boy Promotions (likely Eric Gomez) and Tom Loeffler, managing director of GGG Promotions, agreed to allow the Nevada State Athletic Commission to conduct its investigation. Clearly both promoters wanted to save the show, and were willing to get creative in order to do so. Golden Boy made it clear that Canelo was willing to subject himself to daily testing to ensure that he was clean entering the ring as they were certain that Canelo's positive test was due to contaminated meat. It wasn't until March 23rd that Canelo was temporarily suspended by the Commission before any ruling was made. This happened because DiNicola sent what has been described to us as a very aggressive letter to Commissioner Bob Bennett. DiNicola's letter backed the NSAC into a corner and forced it to follow its rules to the letter of the law, superfight be damned. "That letter killed the fight and now they've got what they wanted," said a source close to the situation.

GOLOVKIN VS. MARTIROSYAN DONE DEAL FOR MAY 5TH

According to both the Los Angeles Times and Yahoo! Sports, world middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin is officially booked to fight former U.S. Olympian Vanes Martirosyan, a junior middleweight, on May 5th at the StubHub Center in Carson, California. Martirosyan is 36-3-1 with his last win coming against Ishe Smith in 2015. The reports state the bout will be televised by HBO.  The LA Times added that Roman Gonzalez and female pound-for-pound queen Cecilia Braekhus could be part of the undercard.

Golovkin was looking for a replacement fight after PED concerns surrounding Saul "Canelo" Alvarez caused Alvarez to withdraw from fighting Golovkin in a Las Vegas pay-per-view show on the same date. The fight could cost Golovkin his IBF belt because a mandatory defense is arguably due (against Sergiy Derevyanchenko) but he'll remain the true world champion and also has the WBC and WBA championships. --Scott Shaffer

LOU DIBELLA TALKS BRONER-VARGAS CARD, WILDER-JOSHUA AND MUCH MORE!
By G. Leon

Can you give us some final pre fight thoughts on the stacked card at the Barclay's Center this Saturday night? First of all the show is doing incredibly well. It's a loaded card, a ton of fights and stacked from top to bottom. There's a ton of local talent with Richardson Hitchins, Heather Hardy and George Arias. Then you've got three televised fights and the amazing thing about this card is for all the obstacles that he's created for himself Broner remains a guy that's got compelling attractiveness to fight fans. The event is selling tickets really well and for people who aren't really boxing fans, Broner's got that thing where people either love him or hate him, but they want to see him. I've always liked the kid and I certainly respect his talent, but he certainly hasn't gotten the most of his talent and against a guy like Jessie Vargas this is pretty much it in my view for him. He's got to win if he's going to stay at the top and stay relevant as a star. I've always thought that part of what he needed to do was honestly, to get his shit together. In this fight I think there's a real interesting story line with the trainer change and him working with Kevin Cunningham. Kevin Cunningham is a guy who is not only an excellent trainer, but he's a no nonsense guy. He should be able to get through to Broner and he might be exactly the right trainer at the right moment for AB.

ERISLANDY LARA WANTS IMMEDIATE REMATCH WITH JARRETT HURD
By G. Leon

"We need to run it right back-I'm going to bang with him again!"

Congrats on a great fight and a great performance in the fight of the year thus far. Unfortunately the decision didn't go your way, can you give us your thoughts on the fight now that you've had a few days to digest what happened? First off, I thought it was a great fight for the fans. As everyone saw I did something nobody expected me to do, I stayed toe to toe with this guy and I beat the bigger guy at his own game. It was a great fight, it was a close fight the guy is a big, strong guy, but going into that last round I thought I was up three, four points. Now looking back at the cards there's a reason my team didn't want Dave Moretti on the judging table because he was controversial in our fight with Canelo and Vegas allowed him to do another one of my fights which I couldn't understand, but looking back he had Hurd winning four or the first five rounds, which is outrageous to me. Dave Moretti got me again. Everyone I spoke to thinks I won the fight, I know he's got some people who thought he won the fight, but anytime fights are this close you run them right back. Floyd Mayweather has close fights with Castillo and Maidana and he ran them right back. This is one of the things the fans love most about boxing, whenever there's a good fight they expect it to be ran right back and that's what I want, I want the rematch and I'm ready to go tomorrow."

By G. Leon

Congrats on a great show the other night. Can you give us some thoughts on O'Shaquie Foster's win over Frank De Alba in the main event, which was a very exciting fight, as well as the rest of the card? "The main event was a fight that should be remembered for a while in the Bethlehem area. It was an outstanding fight for both guys, De Alba started slow and came on in the later rounds. It was a fight that the fans will definitely remember. De Alba showed a lot of heart and he was getting stronger as the fight went on, but Foster was able to get off to a faster start. There's nothing to be ashamed about because De Alba fought a great fight. Luther Smith stopped Elvin Sanchez in the second round, I thought the stoppage might have been a little premature, but I'm not going to question the referee too much. Every fight from top to bottom was exciting and it was a great card overall. I'm very pleased with the boxers who fought on the show, I was pleased with the turnout and we're looking forward to the next one."

NEW CHAMPION ALERT: CRISTOFER ROSALES
By Scott Shaffer

Cristofer Rosales TKO9 Daigo Higa... In a surprising turn of events, Cristofer Rosales of Nicaragua earned the WBC 112-pound championship by defeating Japan's Daigo Higa. Rosales won by ninth-round technical knockout when Higa's corner stopped the fight. According to ringside reports, Higa noticeably slowed down from the sixth round due to Rosales' punishment. The hard-hitting Higa went for broke in an exciting eighth round, and had very little left in the ninth. Still, he was not close to going down when his corner stopped the fight. Yesterday, Higa came in overweight, forfeiting his championship, but Rosales was eligible to win championship recognition with a win over the previously undefeated Higa (now 15-1 with 15 KOs). Rosales is now 27-3 with notable losses to Andrew Selby and current WBA 115-pound champ Khalid Yafai, both  on trips to the UK. source: yahoo! sports / afp / youtube
