A LESSON LEARNED FOR EDDIE HEARN; YOU CAN'T ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU WISH FOR
By G. Leon

To a great extent, whether you like it or not, whether you agree or disagree, the sanctioning bodies very much have the final say in moves you may want to make for Anthony Joshua or any championship caliber fighter for that matter. Case in point, the IBF shot you down when you inquired about having Joshua fight Klitschko. Let me give you a little education given you’re still learning the business. If you want Joshua to keep his IBF strap, he must defend his title against Joseph Parker, assuming Parker beats Dimitrenko this coming Saturday.

 GONZALEZ KTFO’S JAPANESE SOFTIE

Jhonny Gonzalez KO1 Hirotsugu Yamamoto …Jhonny Gonzalez poleaxed overmatched Hirotsugu Yamamoto with one second to spare before the end of  the first round in Cancun, Mexico. This WBC-sanctioned mismatch saw Gonzalez’s career record upped to 62-10, while Yamamoto, coming off a loss to a boxer with a losing record, falls to a weak 19-13-2, with just 3 KOs. Now campaigning as a 130-pounder, Gonzalez dug hooks into the body of his hesitant and pawing Japanese opponent,  then moved upstairs to land a right hook, which smartly sent Yamamoto to the canvas.  He bravely got up, but just before the bell to end round one, Gonzalez dropped a looping left hook on Yamamoto’s jaw to end the bout.  Yamamoto fell awkwardly and was kept on a stool for several minutes afterwards.   source: wbc

LINARES TAKES CROLLA'S WBA TITLE

Jorge Linares W12 Anthony Crolla... Jorge "El Niño de Oro" Linares (41-3, 27 KOs) defeated Anthony "Million Dollar" Crolla (31-4-3, 13 KOs) via decision at the Manchester Arena on Saturday. After twelve rounds of both Linares and Crolla fighting resiliently until the end, the judges announced their scores of 115-114, 117-111, 115-113, which awarded Linares the WBA lightweight title (a WBC diamond belt, essentially a trophy was also at stake). Linares said afterwards, "I hurt my hand in the sixth round, and backed off and it worked. I told my corner my strategy in the 10th round and what I was going to do for the next three rounds. I feel I hurt Crolla a couple times, but didn't want to go forward too much and hurt him too much, because I knew I had to be intelligent. In the beginning of camp, I was worried about my hand but as the weeks went on I began to feel comfortable and feel much better. After this, I want to take a good break and rest, I want my hand to heal and then I will begin training again." source: golden boy press release

BOXINGTALK BREAKS DOWN KLITSCHKO'S OPTIONS
By G. Leon

As previously reported here on boxingtalk.com, assuming the IBF follows their rules, and doesn’t sanction a Klitschko vs. Joshua match, let’s examine the three probable options available to Klitschko.

After getting the disappointing news, Klitschko is now left like the emperor with no clothes. Having ruled the heavyweight division for 10 years, Klitschko is a sure first ballot HOF fighter currently in no man’s land and looking to redeem his painful, unproductive, inexplicable, effortless loss to Tyson Fury.

IBF SHOULD NOT SANCTION JOSHUA-KLITSCHKO
By G. Leon

Now that Tyson Fury has been declared “medically unfit” and for the second time, unable to defend his title against Wladimir Klitschko on October 29, 2016, it will be interesting to see if the IBF plays by their championship rules and sanctions a Joshua vs. Klitschko title fight which both fighters and their respective teams are eager to make, but, would go totally against IBF championship rules given the fact that Klitschko is not even ranked in their heavyweight top 15 rankings which is a mandatory prerequisite according to their rules.

 FURY'S UNCLE SPEAKS OUT, SAYS AILING CHAMP SHOULD NOT BE STRIPPED
By Scott Shaffer

World heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is out of his October rematch with Wladimir Klitschko. Fury (25-0) claimed the world title in November 2015 by defeating Klitschko via unanimous decision. The ex-champion had the contractual right to an immediate rematch with Fury, but was unable to enforce it in the first half of the year when Fury claimed an ankle injury. The rematch was scheduled for October, but yesterday Fury withdrew, saying only he was "medically unfit" to fight. [The full statement from Fury's promoter is published in the story below]. 

Amidst speculation that the volatile Fury has been ruled out due to mental health issues, the champion's uncle/manager/ trainer Peter Fury took to social media to issue a brief statement of his own.  Fury did not confirm or deny the mental health issue, but said, "With Tyson's condition, he cannot be held culpable. Detailed statement coming soon on health. He will not & should not be stripped of belts." Peter Fury later added: "Belts will be determined by the right legal process. In the meantime, 'Singing in the Rain' fits the bill of today."

 TYSON FURY "MEDICALLY UNFIT" TO FIGHT

Mental health issues being speculated

Tyson Fury's world heavyweight championship must be called into question after he pulled out of a rematch with Wladimir Klitschko for the second time in recent months.  The British press is speculating that Fury has mental health issues, which if true, would be a precedent for the heavyweight championship.  Oliver McCall and Mike Tyson (whom Fury is named after) battled mental illness through championship-level fights with varying degree of success. The mental illness has not been confirmed, however, with Fury's promoter confirming only that he is "medically unfit."

Hennessy Sports statement: It is with the deepest regret that we have to announce that the world heavyweight championship rematch between Tyson Fury and Wladimir Klitschko, scheduled to take place on the 29th October 2016 at the Manchester Arena, will not be going ahead. Tyson has, this week, been declared medically unfit to fight. Medical specialists have advised that the condition is too severe to allow him to participate in the rematch and that he will require treatment before going back into the ring. Tyson will now immediately undergo the treatment he needs to make a full recovery. We and Tyson wish to express our sincerest apologies to all those concerned with the event and all the boxing fans who had been looking forward to the rematch. Tyson is understandably devastated by the development. We will be making a further statement in due course. Until then, we ask that Tyson and his family be given the privacy and the space he needs to recover during this difficult time."

LIPPE-MORRISON READY FOR SHOBOX DEBUT

Press Release: As the son of popular former WBO heavyweight titleholder Tommy Morrison, Trey Lippe-Morrison’s name alone generates attention. A quick glance at the Oklahoman’s record shows that all eleven of his victories came by knockout, ten of them inside of two rounds. Also, he is trained by legendary Freddie Roach at Wildcard Boxing Club in Los Angeles, CA. His critics note that his name alone generated the buzz rather than his knockouts and (correctly note) that many second generation boxers didn’t meet expectations. On Friday evening at the Buffalo Run Casino, Lippe-Morrison looks to make his TV debut a successful one when he battles fellow unbeaten Ed “Black Magic” Latimore. The bout opens a quadrupleheader on Shobox: The New Generation and is scheduled for six rounds.

KEITH THURMAN: BOXING IS EVOLVING!
By Keith Thurman (from Premier Boxing Champions)

An open letter to boxing fans from WBA welterweight champion Keith Thurman:

There’s been a lot of talk of late that boxing is dead. To those who choose to believe that, I say bullshit. Boxing is not dead. It’s as alive as when the bell rings—signaling two fighters to meet in the center of the ring. What the sport is doing is evolving, and thus the conversation is changing. Some pundits like to suggest that boxing is in trouble because of a lack of superstars—let me quickly stop that talk right there.
