As i review all the stories fit to print that are making the headlines today, courtesy of our friends over at boxing 247.
Thank you very much christian.
The guys for digging up all these stories and making my job a whole heck of a lot easier.
Let’S start off with the wbc, who announced the upcoming mandatory and the luminary and lemon elimination matches the world boxing council introduced one of its most important rules for boxing the mandatory challenger, a rule that has brought justice opportunity, equity and which has been the formula for Many of the great champions to be crowned since the 1970s before the wbc introduced this rule champions could defend their title with whoever they chose whenever they pleased, and it was not uncommon that the great many prospects did not receive the opportunity to fight for the title.
Even being ranked as number one in the division, they fought as they were glaring, yet wrongly ignored and shunned due to their pelagrosity.
They were too good for their own good.
So, according to wc, the rule we introduced to rectify this basically consists of the champion having the obligation to face the official challenger every 12 months when the fight is ordered.
30 days are given for free negotiations, and if no agreement is reached, a purse bid is then held in which promoters can participate and whoever bids the highest amount wins the rights to promote, said card.
In this case, the wbc and its board of governors have ordered a series, mandatory fights and final eliminatory fights from which the next mandatory rivals of world champions will emerge.
And here are the four upcoming joseph diaz versus ryan, garcia for the wbc interim final elimination fight.
Gary russell versus mark magsayo at the wbc mandatory featherweight nanito donaire versus raymar galbalo, the mandatory bantamweight and eduardo ramirez versus the rato de lomani in the final elimination.

Organizations on the american scene, the wbo and abf, have decided to embrace their responsibility when it comes to competitive title fights both the wbo and abf him have in recent years, independent of each other grown in popularity among fighters and promoters, especially those who are not backed By major tv outlets and sponsors, as the cost of doing wbo and abf title fights are always very reasonable, with a mutual understanding of striving to continue being an asset to the right market, it has been decided to support each other and to work together when it Comes to the improvement of title fights according to abf president jeremy lance, he says we are a sanctioning body for the americas and the wbo is a worldwide organization, but we have more or less the same mindset when it comes to what we want.
Our rules to be in boxing, we know our markets and we’re not here to compete with the big boys, but we want to strengthen our ability to also offer respectable championship titles to those who don’t have major backers.
At the same time, we feel is important for the development of boxers, who are not necessarily blue, chippers or assigned to a powerhouse promoter to get the experience of stepping up to fight for a recognized title with all that this involves and we make that more feasible.
In a professional and respectful way, well, congratulations to them for making the sport more competitive! Speaking of competitive.
