BOXING AT ITS BEST  

 

The Boxing Writers Association of America held its annual awards dinner, and it was so nice to see the boxing community together, so humbling to hear the speeches that brought tears to many and, for once, to see promoters, managers, boxers, television executives, trainers, and anyone involved in the sport interact with the major players of the boxing media in the United States. Congratulations to the BWAA for a successful event which was clearly prepared with passion and dedication to honor the best of 2016.

TOP RANK NEWS

 

TEIKEN PROMOTIONS AND TOP RANK BEGIN NEGOTIATIONS FOR HASSAN N'DAM VS. RYOTA MURATA WBA MIDDLEWEIGHT WORLD TITLE FIGHT  

 

Teiken Promotions and Top Rank®, have begun negotiations for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) middleweight world title between interim WBA middleweight champion Hassan N'Dam and undefeated No. 2 world-rated contender Ryota Murata.               
"While N'Dam wants the fight to take place in France, Mr. Honda and I think this fight would do extremely well in Japan and we are pulling out all stops in trying to bring it there," said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum.  "Since winning Olympic gold in 2012, Ryota has developed a rabid fan base in Japan and we think those fans deserve to see their hero fight for his first professional world title.  It would be a sensational event in Japan."

REMILLARD RETURNS APRIL 1ST

 

Matt "Sharp Shooter" Remillard's Ring comeback no

April Fool's Joke

 

"New England's Future 2", April 1 in Worcester

 

The long trip back begins April 1st for Matt Sharp Shooter" Remillard, 12 years to the day from his professional debut, on the "New England's Future 2" show at the Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts.   Remillard (23-1, 13 KOs), fighting out of Manchester, Connecticut, hasn't boxed for the six years, due to him serving a five-year prison sentence. He takes on Lawrence (MA) lightweight Augustine "Ruthless" Mauras (6-1-3, 3 KOs) in the eight-round co-feature.  If their tense, near volatile stare-down at a recent press conference is a true indication, Remillard vs. Mauras is not going the distance, to put things mildly.

GGG outlasts Jacobs in close unanimous decision

by Barry Wilner/AP

 

Exhausted beyond anything he’d felt in the ring, Gennady Golovkin could barely lift his collection of title belts. Danny Jacobs thought they should have been in his possession. Golovkin outlasted Jacobs in a superb 12-round defense of his middleweight titles Saturday night. Both fighters are knockout artists, yet this one went the distance, the first time GGG has not had a KO in 24 fights, and his first time going 12 rounds. The Kazakh won 115-112 on two judges’ cards and 114-113 on the other.
