The head of the World Boxing Council called Monday for amateur boxing to reinstate head guards after they were absent during the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro.

Mauricio Sulaiman, taking issue with a decision by the International Boxing Assn. (AIBA) to remove headgear for male boxers during the just-completed Olympics, said the number of facial cuts that occurred in the competition underline his concern.

“Having the headgear removed was a very dangerous and risky decision, and I was proved [correct] that it was a terrible situation, with the number of cuts,” Sulaiman told The Times in a telephone conversation from his Mexico City office.

HANDS OF STONE OPENS FRIDAY

 

 

The premiere of "Hands of Stone" nationwide throughout the United States on Friday, tells a fabled and legendary tale of rags to riches, with knuckles of granite fuelled and propelled by  the heart of a lion.

The Great Roberto Duran insists....and who`d argue... that this is NOT just another boxing movie!  Rather,  he considers it  a  life history,  starting with a boy battling poverty,  who navigated his way through pitfalls and past a  hard childhood in Panama.  He magnificently fought his way to the pinnacle elite of Boxing`s tough ranks, even though  so few believed he could reach, let alone  grasp glory. 

He achieved this in NOT one...but in four weight divisions! A gripping real life drama, which shows why this extraordinary man became a hero in his country, an icon throughout the Americas and a superstar globally. In his illustrious career, spanning five decades, Roberto Duran, seldom missed with his aims or with the blows directed by his powerful arms, and dispatched via his fists. No one MUST...OR...WILL  miss.....Hands of Stone! You`ve seen Rocky...now its time to see Stony!

CHISORA BACK IN SEPTEMBER

 

The 32-year-old Londoner (25-6-17KOs) last fought in May when he was outpointed by Kubrat Pulev (23-1-12KOs) in Hamburg with the vacant European title on the line. Chisora, who has previously expressed a desire to take on domestic rivals such as world champion Anthony Joshua and Dillian Whyte, will now face Bosnia & Herzegovina's Drazan Janjanin (13-7-12KOs) as he looks to rebuild. He said: "This is the fight game. If you lose, you have to rebuild and come back. I lost a close fight to Pulev, but I'm still in a good position. "I want a rematch, but let's see if they give it to me. Either way, there are a lot of big fights out there for me, and I'm ready to fight anyone. "I'm excited to be fighting in Sweden. This will be my first time in Stockholm, but I've heard it's a great place. That is one of the good things about working with a big promoter like Team Sauerland - you get to fight all over Europe, and that's one of the reasons I wanted to sign with them."

HEARNS CONFIRMS JOSHUA'S NEXT FIGHT

 

Anthony Joshua next fight date confirmed by his promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sport.

 

IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua has a been a busy man this past year or so, between racking up his first world title inside sixteen professional fights, making a defense of it and now he is set to box again before the year is out. Recently Londoner Joshua has been in Rio to support team GB boxers at this year’s Olympics, offering guidance to those coming through, doing commentary for the likes of BBC.

But it’s back to business soon for the big hitting Joshua. His promoter Eddie Hearn has confirmed the following to Sky Sports today: The race is now on to see what opponent will be secured for Joshua, with many in the game hoping for a step up in level of opposition for his next fight. Joshua has been quoted this summer as saying he only wants a serious contender next up, so hopefully someone credible will be selected for this popular heavyweight’s next in-ring assignment.

 

BARRERA FRUSTRATED

 

Top light heavyweight contender Sullivan Barrera has been diligently working on his craft in the hot Florida summer under the guidance of trainer Derik Santos.
The former Cuban amateur standout has inexplicably been out of the ring since coming up short against Andre Ward on March 26th in the top pound-for-pound fighter's backyard.  The loss was Barrera's first and after producing knockout victories in his prior six fights, he is surprised that he hasn't been back in action.
"I don't understand it.  I've been putting on great fights. People have seen my knockouts on ESPN and on HBO Latino.  I thought I would have fought again in the summer or at least had a fight lined up by now," said Barrera.
