TANK SHOULD BRING AN ASS WHOOPIN' BUT

TANK SHOULD BRING AN ASS WHOOPIN' BUT

this one might just go down very different to the script ?

On paper - Frank Martin has the requisite unblemished record, and he shapes as a worthy opponent for arguably the most "watchable" boxer on the world scene right now - Gervonta "Tank" Davis. 
Tank - the Mayweather prodigy, as technical as he is lethal, equal parts endearing yet formidable, his impish form even had the hairs on the back of Bernard Hopkins' neck stand at full attention.
 
So theoretically, this is a nice fight in the offing. 

Yet a closer look at Martin's resume yields  
"Hang on a minute ! 
Look at some of the wooden indians and crash test dummies this guy has beat." 
Upon detailed inspection, it seems obvious that Martin has been defeating guys not out of place at a Lord of the Rings casting call.
And now he gets to fight Gervonta Davis for a world title ????? 
How the hell does that work ?

THIS IS PRO BOXING AT IT'S WORST !!!
Or is it ???

Why do we get that nagging feeling that this is indeed a fight, and more, that Tank might even be in deep here ? 
Is this the fight where Davis gets a litte over confident, a little sloppy, or is it more ?
Despite the weak opponents on his resume, Frank "the Ghost" Martin really does look the part !
He looks to be incredible shape this week in Vegas, and it hasn't gone unnoticed.

When asked why he’s so confident that he’ll be able to beat Davis this weekend, Martin gave this response.
“‘Cause I’m different. I got some things: I got speed, I got power, I got IQ. I feel like I got it all. Ya’ll gonna see. When it’s time to bite down, the world gonna see.
“We got this fight Saturday and I’m going to whoop his ass...we got Saturday to show who’s who.”

Ladies and gentlemen, I believe we "do got a fight" this Saturday night !"

VIETNAM VERSUS SOUTH KOREA

Let's GOOOOOOOO !!!!!

NGUYỄN PHI KHOA PUMPED FOR HOIANA DEBUT
HCMC boxer Nguyễn Phi Khoa is one of three Vietnamese boxers that will head to Danang for the "Legendary" International boxing event early next month.
Khoa will face off with South Korea's 🇰🇷 Jung Jaewook - and the two combatants have been given the honor of kicking off the show as the first fight.
Nguyễn Phi Khoa may possibly be the least experienced fighter on the card, but he lacks nothing in confidence or grunt. He is also trained by the best :

"Nguyen Phi Khoa – this is the battle hungry debutant fighter out of HCMC Vietnam – and there is plenty of talk to say this boy will be very good. And you should believe the whispers, because Khoa is mentored by none other than Vietnam’s most recognized pro boxer – the world rated Tran Van Thao. 
Despite his inexperience, this strong bodied student has been described as a KILLER, so expect him to produce a very physical performance against his more vaunted opponent in this Hoiana bout. They say where there is a will, there is a way, and Team Khoa will do everything in their powers to gain a Vietnam victory in this exciting opening bout."

Enough said !! Vietnam 🇻🇳 is here to do the business !!!

"Legendary" International boxing event will be held at the iconic Hoiana Resort and Casino on Saturday night August 3rd.

DAVAO "MACHINE GUN" SET FOR VIETNAM

DAVAO "MACHINE GUN" SET FOR VIETNAM

Top Davao prospect Dennis Endar is one of two pinoy selected for a huge international event to be held in Vietnam next month. Endar will join another Mindanao boxer Jerry Francisco, who will appear in the main event and contest the WBO Global title.
Dennis "Machine Gun" Endar will face China’s 🇨🇳 top rated Flyweight Hu Longyi over 6 rounds, in a bout that many consider maybe the fight of the night. And with good reason !

"Dennis Endar exciting Southpaw prospect hailing from Davao – a hotbed of boxing talent in Southern Philippines. 
23 year old Dennis Endar was responsible for one of the biggest wins of 2023 when he stopped the previously unbeaten Antonio Uy. This was simply an amazing performance where he dropped Uy no less than 3 times – a feat that had previously seemed impossible against his much hyped opponent. 
Endar has been rewarded for that big victory with inclusion at Hoiana, and this will be the Philippines’ boxer’s much anticipated first test on foreign soil. But be careful of what you wish for ! His opponent Hu Longyi of China represents another step up, and will surely provide a stern test of where this talented striker sits in the world scene right now."

Dennis Endar will fight at the Hoiana Resort and Casino on Saturday night August 3rd.

HANEY’S WOES GO FROM BAD TO WORSE
June 22, 2024

HANEY’S WOES GO FROM BAD TO WORSE

In the old days, boxers copped their licks, picked themselves up, and moved on.
Fast forward to 2024 .......

For a guy that they mockingly referred to as an instagrammer with nothing but a left hook - Team Haney are certainly taking their beat down at the hands of Ryan Garcia quite badly !

"The Dream" salesmen have now announced plans to sue Ryan Garcia - a man who did nothing more than expose Haney as a useful but lower tier performer. 
The loss was so lopsided that many doubt Haney will be the same ever again. 
In fact, the light punching prospect has even admitted that he is mentally damaged by the beating he suffered at the hands of his "social media" opponent :

" So, it [the loss] affected me. 
My lawyers and my team will do that in court against Ryan Garcia, and we will take legal action because it has affected me. 
Not only financially but mentally. ”

But the legal representation for Ryan Garcia have had enough of the excuse making and babbling from the over rated Haney, and have returned serve with an emphatic statement of their own :

Ryan Garcia’s team have just issued a fresh statement where they mentioned that “one thing remains clear - Ryan Garcia beat Devin Haney, and this result will never be erased from the public.”

Statement: 
“There is a lot of misinformation being disseminated about Ryan Garcia.
However, the undisputed facts are as follows: his positive test was the result of contaminated supplements, of which he was unaware; the subsequent lab testing of the supplements proved to be in the billions of a gram; and, the two positive tests were in the billions and trillions, that every expert will attest to had absolutely no performance benefit. (Emphasis added)

“Regarding the weight issue, the Haney's could have chose to stop the fight, due to the weight clause, but instead, negotiated heavily and agreed to the "cash grab" and the fight.

“There was never an intent by Ryan, and the facts reiterate this, to gain an advantage over Haney. To be clear, Ryan Garcia's sole advantage over Devin Haney was that he is simply a superior fighter.

“Rest assured, there are multiple agendas that have been at play since Ryan's clear and convincing win against Haney, and all those agendas have been aimed against King Ryan.
No matter what those agendas are, one thing remains clear - Ryan Garcia beat Devin Haney, and this result will never be erased from the public and media.”

BEACH PARTY IN MASBATE

 Some great fights are coming this Saturday from the idyllic Matayum lagoon in Cataingan, Masbate. 
Local boy Jeo Santisima stars in the main event against Thailand's Arnon Yupang for the WBC Asia Continental belt.
Esneth Domingo 19-2 takes on Enrique Magsalin for the WBC Asia Flyweight belt, while Ben Ligas and Alvin Camique are going to war in search of their first WBF Title. 
But the fight of the day is surely the showdown between Michael Dasmarinas and the Wolverine JonJon Estrada for the vacant RP National title. Hot'n Spicy Dasmarinas has been one of the Philippines' blue riband performers in recent years, and Estrada has notoriously been one of it's most violently effective !

The action for what promises to be a great card begins at 1pm, and is brought to you by ATK Promotions.
"I'M PRETTY BOY FLOYD REINCARNATED !"
June 18, 2024

"I'M PRETTY BOY FLOYD REINCARNATED !"

"Do the research look at similarities in style and career." - Devin Haney 

Devin and Bill Haney were only recently beating their drum to claim boxing's pound for pound status, yet shares in the "Chasing Greatness" team have dropped dramatically in recent times.

The marketing pitch of Team Haney started to look a little dubious after he was manhandled by a much smaller Vasyl Lomachenko, yet many were willing to give him a "pass" due to his credible performance against a technically superior and more experienced opponent. 
To be fair, it was a very good fight, and one that his supporters were hoping would leverage to greater performances.
But there were obvious cracks, and they were beginning to show. 

At times, Devin Haney appeared completely out of ideas - almost forlorn, against Loma. 
Father Bill was disturbingly quiet, and offered precious little in terms of technical solution when Haney was being run ragged by Lomachenko. It was this lack of corner direction that would haunt Haney once more when he later faced Ryan Garcia. 

Cynicism was enveloping Team Haney - "weight bully" "pillow fists" "glass jaw" - coined generic terms for sure, but certainly not ones to be associated with a P4P self proclaimed ! 
And the derision was becoming his constant traveling companion.

But Haney had a golden opportunity to put all that negative propaganda to bed. 
The plan was simple. 
Fight and defeat a very talented yet flawed boxer named Ryan Garcia - the guy is a flat footed instagrammer, with nothing but a left hook after all. 
Easy work surely !
WRONG !!

Team Haney’s "Dream" turned into their worst nightmare fully realised. 
Weight bully, glass jaw and pillow fists were there for all to see - it was like that harrowing moment that you experienced as a kid when you found out that Santa wasn't real !

Okay - so the Team Haney hoax is now over. 
I think everyone fully accepts that.
The guy has no chin, no weapons, but hey - he is still a helluva talent, and even if just a measuring stick, he's still a guy worth watching isn't he ?

After Tank's epic win on Saturday night, Devin Haney was quick to tweet "Ready to get back n the mix". 

There is no doubt he has lots of options. 
Eddie Hearn said he fears for Haney against a puncher like Subriel Matias, but after his loss on the weekend, maybe he is now in calculations.
If not, who then ?

Who from this list does the P4P candidate beat ? :
Ryan Garcia, Teofimo Lopez, Pitbull Cruz, Liam Paro, Richardson Hitchins and just for the heck of it - Gervonta Davis and Shakur.
Word is, the Aussie Paro maybe his next big assignment. 

Perhaps none - but now that "the Dream" has now been debunked, there are many that will be cheering for this talented kid to get back off the canvas and regain lost credibility.

WHAT IS A STANDARD PROFESSIONAL BOXING RING?
June 15, 2024

WHAT IS A STANDARD PROFESSIONAL BOXING RING?

Professional boxing must be done in an approved sized boxing ring. It can be between 4.9m (16ft) to 7.3m(24ft) from one corner to adjacent corner. The ring must be 1m (3.2ft) in height. This is importan as it provides standard viewing angle of the judges. Tension of the ropes must be equal and aligned vertically. 4 ropes separated by 30cm in vertical distance. It is the role of the inspector to ensure that the competition arena meets both the technical and safety requirements before the contest. At VBO we look for 3 main areas.  
1. Ring surface must be even, not slippery, and without debris.
2. Ropes must not pose any cut risk to boxers.
3. Dimension of the ring, and the tension of the ropes must be within specifications.

BRONER LOOKS TO RESURRECT AGAINST COBBS

The Adrien Broner vs Blair Cobbs final press conference was even more wild than expected: "My n***as got guns with them. All I've gotta do is point and they're gonna blow."
It was hard to interpret Broner's rant.
Many saw that as a thinly veiled sexual reference from the gum chewing former prodigy, who has battled with compulsive disorder issues - even to the point of dry humping opponents during championship bouts
That aside, he tore off his shirt to show that Homer Simpson also comes in chocolate. 
All that aside, the salient question remains "do I still got it ?"
Blair "the Flair" Cobbs shapes as a credible enough opponent, with only one loss on his resume. 
The tall southpaw steps out for the first time since beating Maurice Hooker by UD back in 2022, but he has enough gravitas to help us guage whther there is a path ahead for the enigmatic Adrien Broner.
The two entertaining boxers will battle for their future at the Hard Rock Casino in Hollywood Florida this Friday night.
Friendly advice to Blair the Flair : Do not turn your back on Broner, he'd hump a table leg given half a chance.

HÀ THỊ LINH GIÀNH VÉ DỰ OLYMPIC 2024 TIẾP THEO CHO VIỆT NAM

Đứng trước cơ hội cuối cùng để giành thêm vé cho Boxing Việt Nam dự Olympic Paris 2024, nữ võ sĩ Hà Thị Linh đã không bỏ lỡ cơ hội khi góp mặt trong trận play-off hạng cân 60kg.

Đối đầu Vilma Viitanen (Phần Lan), Hà Thị Linh có hiệp 1 thi đấu tốt với những pha chủ động vào đòn tầm gần, giúp cô giành chiến thắng 10-9 trên 4 bảng điểm của các giám định.

Sang hiệp 2, Viitanen tăng áp lực khi biết bị dẫn điểm. Hà Thị Linh đáp trả bằng các tổ hợp đòn đánh nặng khi di chuyển lùi. Điểm số 20-18, 20-18, 19-19, 19-19, 19-19 trong hiệp 2 khiến cả hai ứng viên đều phải nỗ lực trong hiệp đấu cuối.

Sang hiệp 3, Viitanen tiếp tục gây sức ép với hàng loạt pha rượt đuổi và ra đòn tầm gần uy lực. Cú móc trái mạnh khiến trọng tài phải đếm với Linh. Thể lực cả hai đã giảm xuống sau nhiều pha đổi đòn. Các pha trả đòn sau đó của Linh khiến Viitanen không thể đạt được hiệu quả trong những pha tấn công. Chung cuộc, Hà Thị Linh giành chiến thắng tính điểm 4-1, mang về tấm vé Olympic Paris 2024 thứ hai cho Boxing Việt Nam cùng người đồng đội Võ Thị Kim Ánh (54kg nữ).

NGUYỄN VĂN HẢI JULY 23 SAINT PETERSBURG

The Hanoi Hitman is looking to make up for lost time, and will be back in the ring in Russia this coming July.
The beautiful Baltic city of Saint Petersburg will provide the backdrop to a compelling match up with outstanding Uzbekistan boxer Khurshidbek Rasuljonov (7-0 3KO)
23 year old Rasuljonov is a 3x national champ, a 2x Asian champ, and maintains a flawless professional record.
The bout will be a contested over 8 rounds, and represents another great opportunity for Nguyễn Văn Hải to make his mark abroad. 
The Hanoi boxer has no opportunity to shine in his home country of Vietnam unfortunately, where professional boxing appears to be in freefall right now.

HOW MANY CHAMPIONS TITLES AVAILABLE IN ASIA?

HOW MANY CHAMPIONS TITLES AVAILABLE IN ASIA? 

Did you know that there are over 50 global sanctioning organizations that offer various champion titles in the world? They are mostly private organizations that market their brand(s). However the four most recognized ones are : WBO, WBC, WBA, IBF.

Each of the above four organizations offer different regional championship titles and there are a lot of them! Here are some regional titles that may be available for qualified boxers in the Asia Pacific region.  

Note that considering that there are at least 17 weight divisions, there will be a minimum of 17 champions for each regional belt. If you add them all up, there are over 391 championship titles just for men alone. If you include all possible female champions, at least 690 championship titles are available.  

IBF (International Boxing Federations) 
1. IBF ASIA (male)
2. IBF ASIA OCEANIA (male)
3. IBF ASIA AUSTRALASIAN (male)
4. IBF INTERNATIONAL (male/female)
5. IBF INTERCONTINENTAL (male/female)
6. IBF YOUTH (male)

WBA (World Boxing Association)
1. WBA ASIA EAST (male)
2. WBA ASIA SOUTH (male)
3. WBA ASIA (male/female)
4. WBA OCEANIA (male)
5. WBA INTERNATIONAL (male/female)
6. WBA INTERCONTINENTAL (male/female)

WBC (World Boxing Council)
1. WBC FAR EAST (male)
2. WBC ASIAN SILVER (male) 
3. WBC ASIAN (male/female)
4. WBC ASIAN CONTINENTAL (male)
5. WBC YOUTH INTERCONTINENTAL (male)

WBO (World Boxing Organization)
1. WBO ORIENTAL (male)
2. WBO ASIA PACIFIC (male/female)
3. WBO GLOBAL (male)
4. WBO INTERNATIONAL (male) 
5. WBO ASIA PACIFIC YOUTH (male)
6. WBO INTERCONTINENTAL (male)

So which should you go for? What is available for the boxer is almost entirely dependent on the promoter and their preference in working with the sanctioning organizations. Do you have a preference?

DEVIN HANEY- WAS IT ALL JUST A DREAM ?
May 28, 2024

DEVIN HANEY- WAS IT ALL JUST A DREAM ?

A hotly disputed "win" against Lomachenko showed the cracks. 
But his first foray against a similar sized, yet supposedly way lesser boxer, ended in total disaster - and confirmed what many had suspected. 
Haney : No weapons - No chin. 
The cloak of invincibility has well and truly been lifted on Devin Haney - who has campaigned with the appropriate ring monicker - The Dream.

Devin Haney - the over rated champ nobody wants to see again ?
*story courtesy of Boxing News 24

Devin Haney has captured world titles in two weight classes by age 25, but few fans are impressed with what he’s accomplished during his nine-year career.
Haney stepped up for the first time last month against Ryan Garcia on April 20th, and he was out of his league. He was dropped six times and lost a 12-round decision. Fans were left wondering what they had ever seen in Haney. His reputation has nosedived since, and it’s difficult for fans to view him still as a world champion. The WBC allowed Haney to keep his light welterweight title despite losing.
That performance had a devasting effect on Haney’s career, resulting in fans no longer viewing him as the #1 fighter in the 140-lb division and feeling that they’d been wrong about their previously high appraisal of him after his win against Regis Prograis last December. Before Haney’s loss to Ryan, some fans thought he’d beaten the best fighter in the weight class when he defeated the 35-year-old Prograis. I didn’t feel that way.

Watching Prograis lose to Josh Taylor in 2019 showed that he was flawed from the start. That fight showed all I needed to know about Prograis because Tyalor was always an average fighter. That’s Why Nobody Wants The Rematch Fans should want to see a rematch, but they don’t have faith in Haney that he can raise his game enough to avenge his loss to Ryan (25-1, 20 KOs).
The fans saw all they needed to, watching Ryan put Haney in trouble in the opening seconds of round one and continuing to batter him for the remainder of the fight. In the seventh, Haney was knocked down four times and seemingly saved by the referee, Harvey Dock, who inexplicably penalized Ryan for hitting on the break after he grew frustrated at the nonstop holding that was being done.
Devin was trying to stall out the round after the first knockdown, and Ryan got fed up with being held excessively and instinctively hit Haney when the referee peeled him off. No warning had been given to Ryan before the penalization.

Many fans consider Haney the weakest of the four champions at 140 because of his questionable chin and his fighting style, which involves a lot of clinching, jabbing, and moving around the ring. The other champions at 140 :
- Teofimo Lopez 
– Subriel Matias 
– Isaac Cruz 
Haney would lose to all those champions and likely get knocked out if he couldn’t clinch excessively once he was hurt, as we saw in his fight with Ryan.

I DEBUNKED THAT !!"

"HANEY WAS THE NEXT MAYWEATHER ? I DEBUNKED THAT !!"

"I FEEL HURT AND DAMAGED BY THE ACCUSATIONS THAT ARE PUT ON ME. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT I AM NOT A CHEATER, I'VE NEVER BEEN A CHEATER. I'VE PUT IN SO MUCH WORK MY WHOLE LIFE, AND ONE OF MY GREATEST VICTORIES HAS A LITTLE BIT OF AN ASTERISK BECAUSE OF A LIE. 
I'M GENUINELY HURT. I CRY AT NIGHT SOMETIMES JUST KNOWING THAT THEY ARE TRYING TO TAINT MY VICTORY ...
WE'RE LETTING LITERAL CHEATERS LIKE STEROIDS POSTER BOY VICTOR CONTE CONVICT ME OF CHEATING. AND HE'S THE ONE WHO SHAPED VADA. 
WHY ARE WE LISTENING TO THIS GUY? THAT SMELLS LIKE FUNNY BUSINESS TO ME ... 

I KNOW DEVIN HANEY WAS THE POSTER CHILD FOR BEING THE NEXT FLOYD MAYWEATHER BUT I DEBUNKED THAT.

GOOSEN SUPPORTS RYAN GARCIA BEING CLEAN

Acclaimed boxing trainer Joe Goosen shares his thoughts on the recent Ryan Garcia controversy. 
He also makes the interesting assertion that the talented fighter is one of the best he has ever trained ! 
*story courtesy Boxing Scene :

There is no bad blood between former fighter-trainer tandem Ryan Garcia and Hall of Fame coach Joe Goossen. 

Garcia split from Goossen after three fights last year following his knockout loss to Gervonta Davis and has since linked up with Derrick James. 

On April 20, the heavy underdog Garcia knocked down Devin Haney three times to win a majority decision. But the victory has been surrounded by controversy. 

Garcia blew weight for the 140-pound fight by 3.2 pounds, and on May 1, tests revealed that Garcia tested positive for the banned performance-enhancing substance Ostarine on the day of and the day before the fight.

Haney has since requested that the New York State Athletic Commission disqualify Garcia. 

Garcia has maintained his innocence as he awaits the results of his B-sample, and his former coach, Goossen, is backing him, too. 

“I’ve known Ryan ever since he was a teenager, and I have nothing but great things to say about him because he has a great heart,” Goossen told BoxingScene. “He’s one of the best fighters I’ve ever trained. He’s got so much talent that it’s not even funny. He’s got everything.

“I trained Ryan for two years straight and never saw anything remotely close to the same galaxy of what is being talked about now. It wasn't even talked about. Ryan would never knowingly do something like that. When he trained with me, he was dedicated. He always worked hard. Nothing about Ryan would lead me even to speculate anything in that direction. No way. Something isn't right. I can not point the finger at Ryan. None of it makes sense to me. In my wildest dreams, I cannot conceive of Ryan Garcia purposely doing anything that would endanger his career in such a way.” 

Goossen guided Garcia to wins against Emmanuel Tagoe and Javier Fortuna, but Garcia couldn’t overcome the southpaw Davis. 

Goossen envisions a promising future for Garcia once he gets back into fight mode. 

“Ryan will never lose to a right-hander,” said Goossen. “He's going to be great at 147 pounds because he won't have to kill himself to make weight. He's tall and has a big frame. It's amazing and almost frightening to see him hit bags and hit people. He's one of the fastest, smartest, hardest hitters per square inch I have ever dealt with, and that's saying something.”

WHEN THE WAR IS OVER

Mexican 🇲🇽 Kenbun Torres departs the Philippines today, and bumps into last night's opponent at Ninoy Aquino - champion Reymart Gaballo. 

"I spotted my opponent walking alone through the airport
It's Reymart Gaballo !
I was full of nerves and aggression when we are together at the weigh-in - that is a fighter.
But I couldn't help but shout out to the brave man who gave me an opportunity, and swapped punches in the same ring. 
I don't know the words to express my appreciation but I shook hands and hugged.
Maybe someday we can fight again, I know Reymart is a great fighter for the Philippines. 
I want to pay respect from the bottom of my heart to Reymart Gaballo and the people that were so kind to me when I visited this special place.
Thank you. "

Vasiliy Lomachenko và Georges Kambosos Jr

Cái tên Vasyl Lomachenko không phải là cái tên xa lạ gì đối với những người yêu thích quyền anh "đẹp".

Dù ở thời kỳ đỉnh cao hay hiện tại, trước khi chuyển sang chuyên nghiệp, anh đã có 2 lần giành HCV Olympic, 1 thành tích đáng tự hào mà nhiều tay đấm trẻ hướng tới. Và chẳng cần đến trận đấu thứ ba trong sự nghiệp chuyên nghiệp của mình, Lomachenko đã trở thành kẻ thách thức các đai vô địch quyền anh thế giới, một con quái vật mà bất kỳ vị vua nào cũng dè chừng.

Trận đấu với Georges Kambosos Jr vào ngày 12/5 tới là lần thượng đài đầu tiên của Vasiliy Lomachenko (17-3 Boxing, 11 KO) kể từ thất bại trước Devin Haney hồi tháng 5/2023, cuộc đối đầu xác định chủ nhân chức vô địch tuyệt đối với 4 danh hiệu WBC, WBA, IBF và WBO đã để lại nhiều tranh cãi bởi kết quả trên bảng điểm.

Ở tuổi 36, tất cả đều hiểu rằng thời gian để Lomachenko cạnh tranh ở cấp độ đỉnh cao không còn nhiều, dù anh vẫn được biết tới như một trong các võ sĩ có kĩ thuật và bộ pháp đứng đầu làng Quyền Anh đương đai. Dù vậy, bản thân Lomachenko vẫn muốn dành sự ưu tiên trong việc giúp đỡ những người dân quê nhà Ukraine trong cuộc chiến đang diễn ra, lý do khiến anh vắng bóng suốt một năm qua.

Những chấn thương vai kể từ cuộc đối đầu với Teofimo Lopez năm 2020 cũng là nỗi lo của những người hâm mộ "Hi-Tech", bởi khả năng tấn công của tay đấm từng giành 2 HCV Olympic (2008 & 2012) đến từ việc kiểm soát trận đấu bằng số lượng đòn đấm vượt trội. Và hơn thế, đối thủ Georges Kambosos Jr của anh cũng là một cái tên có phong cách thi đấu tương tự.

Cuộc đối đầu giữa Vasiliy Lomachenko và Georges Kambosos Jr sẽ diễn ra vào sáng Chủ Nhật ngày 12/5 theo giờ Việt Nam. Webthethao.vn sẽ tiếp sóng sự kiện Boxing đáng chú ý của làng Boxing thế giới tới quý vị khán giả.

DOHENY STOPS BRYL BAYOGOS IN 4TH

DOHENY STOPS BRYL BAYOGOS IN 4TH

In the curtain raiser of the Inoue-Nery gigantic promotion at Tokyo Dome, former IBF junior feather champ TJ Doheny (26-4, 20 KOs), 121.75, decked an easy TKO victory over previously unbeaten Filipino Bryl Bayogos (7-1-1, 2 KOs), 121.5, at 2:51 of the fourth round in a scheduled eight on Monday. 
Doheny quickly caught the still nervous and stiff Filipino and dropped him with solid body shots twice in the third, and followed up so furiously that the referee called a well-timed halt in round four, when Bayogos fell down again. 
Doheny scored his fourth triumph in as many bouts in Japan since he dethroned then IBF ruler Ryosuke Iwasa on points in 2018. 
The Irishman TJ, now residing in Australia for years, is gunning for a shot at “Monster” Naoya Inoue. Doheny had been supposed to fight Inoue should Luis Nery become unavailable by any inconvenience, but it eventually didn’t materialize with Nery successfully having made weight.

Why Olympic Boxers Aren’t Wearing Headgear Anymore
April 28, 2024

Why Olympic Boxers Aren’t Wearing Headgear Anymore

SOMETHING IS MISSING from Olympics boxing this year. Did you notice? It’s lot easier to see the faces of male boxers---taunting, grimacing, or smiling in all their Olympian glory. This year, the Olympics ditched boxing headgear for the first time since 1984, making it look a lot more like professional boxing.

The decision, according to statements from amateur boxing’s governing organization---the International Boxing Association, or AIBA---came down to safety. Counterintuitively, referees had to stop matches for head injuries (aka likely concussions) more often when boxers were wearing headgear, according to an AIBA study. But whether ditching headgear actually makes boxers safer---especially from non-concussion injuries---is, well, more complicated.

“This rule change was rather surprising for lot of people. There’s still lot of research that needs to be done,” says Cynthia Bir, a University of Southern California biomechanics researcher who has evaluated boxing equipment for USA Boxing. In fact, female Olympians will still be wearing headgear in boxing, due to lack of safety data. (AIBA did not respond to requests for comment.)

What almost everyone can agree on is that foam padding does little to protect against concussions and knockout blows. Punch hard enough, and you overwhelm the foam’s ability to absorb energy. “The headgear becomes less useful and then not useful,” says Blaine Hoshizaki, a head injury researcher at the University of Ottawa.

Plus, the headgear still leaves boxers vulnerable to punches to the jaw, which are most likely to cause concussions because they whip the head around. “Boxers know that to get the knockout, you need to make the head spin,” says Bir. “Jabs aren’t going to do much.” Your brain normally sits suspended in fluid; when your head whips around, the brain whips around too, the tissue stretching and compressing. This causes concussions.

But why would wearing headgear increase the rate of likely concussions? The AIBA’s study has a few theories: Headgear makes it tougher to see, so boxers can’t dodge as well. Or perhaps headgear creates a false sense of safety and boxers take more risks. It also makes the boxer’s head a bigger target.

Another matter to consider though: Concussions aren’t the only head injuries boxers get. “A lot of the long-term consequences of repetitive head trauma may be from many, many subconcussive blows over time,” says Charles Bernick, a neurologist at the Cleveland Clinic. Bernick has been following a group of professional boxers and MMA fighters since 2011, and he’s found that even the brains of fighters who have not reported concussions exhibit damage visible in MRI scans.

These subconcussive blows, which don’t have any immediately obvious symptoms, could also lead to chronic traumatic encephalopathy, or CTE, over time. “With concussions, you can see it and you can diagnose it,” says Hoshizaki. “The challenge is the ones you don’t see, don’t feel. This is I think the scary part.” Headgear could mitigate some of these blows. But it’s hard to study because it’s hard to measure how much brain damage these subconcussive blows actually cause; the same punch might cause damage in one person but not another because of the structure of their head or neck musculature.

The AIBA has tried to get more professional in recent years---the extra “A” in the acronym is a remnant from when it had “amateur” in its name. And the group made other changes for the Olympics this year: It changed the scoring system to bring it in line with the pro boxing and allowed professionals to qualify for the games. (Though only three are competing in Rio.) Pros have a good reason to not use headgear
TOP 5 COUNTRIES WITH THE MOST PRO BOXING EVENTS.
April 27, 2024

TOP 5 COUNTRIES WITH THE MOST PRO BOXING EVENTS.

According to Boxrec, there were 7,191 boxing events (63,573 bouts) in the past 12 months worldwide. USA 1,598 boxing events accounting for 27% of the total. That is more than the sum of the next 4 countries combined.

Boxing events are not necessarily connected to the wealth of a nation. Argentina, Mexico, and Russia are not known for their economic strength yet hosted 676, 488, and 294 events respectively in the last 12 months.  

In comparison, Vietnam hosted 12 events in the same period. With over 100 million in population and one of the largest amateur boxer population, VBO estimates that Vietnam should be hosting approximately 100~200 events per year. That is roughly 15 events per month. 

The question should be focused around how to make it easier for people to host boxing events, starting with 4 rounds of boxing focused on debuting boxers who are beginners in professional boxing. Safety of boxers are very important but often that concept is misused to scare noninformed public.  

Most injuries that boxers sustain are from three main areas:
1. Not enough rest between fights.
2. Excessive weight reduction before the fight.
3. Previous injuries that are left unattended.  

While mismatch can be a big problem, this is the fault of the referee/supervisor for not stopping the fight when needed. Unfortunately, this is one skill that can not be learned in a classroom but through experience. This is why developing high quality boxing ring officials is so important and difficult to do. No amount of training or certificates can replace actual experience in the ring. Just like boxers, officials also need consistent events to practice and sharpen their skills.

What are your thoughts to make 15 events/month a reality in Vietnam?

MATEO TAPIA READY FOR WORLD'S BEST

MATEO TAPIA READY FOR WORLD'S BEST

Mexican born Aussie Mateo Tapia came to Vietnam as a 20 year old and took on that country's fight legend Truong Dinh Hoang - a 10 times national champion and unbeaten pro. It was a hugely exciting, if not unnerving, experience for the young fighter.
Fast forward 5 years, and 16-0 Tapia is world ranked in a very hot middleweight division. 
Mateo Tapia makes his return in Sydney tonight, and will meet Keiber Gonzalez 20-0 in what will surely be a launch towards a world title run.
Good luck Mateo.

VIETNAM GUEST WINS IN AMERICAN RETURN

Charly Suarez has been a regular visitor to Vietnam. He fought an exhibition bout with Nguyễn Văn Hải at Victory8 in Hanoi, and he won the WBC belt at Ho Tram against Indonesia’s champion Defry Palulu. 
Today he was Stateside, winning his return bout in Corpus Christi Texas on a Top Rank event. Suarez broke his hand in August of last year, but resumed in style today in a near shutout win over America's Luis Coria. 
It was an emphatic performance, and likely to earn Suarez a world title eliminator shot at his next outing.

SUAREZ SCARES OFF HENRY LEBRON TEAM

The Philippines' Charly Suarez always looks great in sparring, but apparently a session where the King's Warrior was "on fire" was witnessed by the coach of Henry Lebron - and was enough for them to immediately pull out of their world title eliminator next Saturday night.
Lebron has now been consigned to the "Top Rank Scaredy Cat" bench warmers list, and will be replaced by Luis Coria 15-6 in what is Suarez return from a broken hand last August. 
A win for Suarez will guarantee him a world title eliminator at his next outing - and you can bet your bottom dollar it won't be Henry Lebron in the other corner !
Charly Suarez fights on a Top Rank show in Corpus Christi Texas next Saturday night April 13th.
SUAREZ BACK BETTER THAN EVER
April 6, 2024

SUAREZ BACK BETTER THAN EVER

The Philippines' best boxer Charly Suarez resumes next Saturday on a big Top Rank show in Corpus Christi Texas - 8 long months after sustaining a broken hand in August of last year. 
Despite looking comfortable in a lopsided decision win, Suarez actually did the damage in round one against tough Yohan Vasquez, and was forced to fight the remainder of their bout in southpaw. 
An incredible effort !
The King's Warrior Charly Suarez last fought in Vietnam in December 2022 (hence the Christmas tree !) and followed up his win at Ho Tram with a 4 title win in Australia over unbeaten star Paul Fleming. 
Suarez has been promised a world title eliminator bout if successful in next week's American bout, and all his friends at VSP wish him a career defining performance on that big stage.
Good luck Charly boy !

YAP AND NGAKA BOTH WANTING WBF PRIZE

The countdown is on !
The Philippines' Mark John Yap and Botswana's Moabi Ngaka will be banging it out in 10 days time to decide the World Boxing Foundation International title.
And both countries are supremely confident of capturing the prestigious prize !

Those in the Yap camp say that this is the lightest they have seen the Journey Man prior to a big fight, and that his training has seen the experienced warrior ascend to new levels.
Moabi Ngaka is famed for his cardio, and has been reeling off 20km runs in amongst a torrid twice daily training schedule of sparring multiple partners at each session. 
This will very definitely be a battle of Mark John Yap's experience and power versus the speed, movement and endurance of the younger and taller Moabi Ngaka. 
But as they say, two dogs - one bone !!
So who you got ????

March 16, 2024

VENGEANCE HAS A NEW NAME

Arnel Baconaje "The Silencer" has been one of the Philippines' outstanding boxers of recent years, and will get the opportunity to take his talents to an international stage later this month.
The Silencer will meet the man that many regard as the best prospect in Botswana - Steven Bagwasi. 
This boxing prodigy has a 9-1 record, and is touted as a future world star by those in the know.
But Arnel Baconaje is not one for reputations, and whilst respectful of his quality opponent, is certainly not daunted. The RP National champ sees a spot for himself on the world stage, and knows that an emphatic win over a star like Bagwasi will cement his position. 
Baconaje has been the victim of some horrible decisions in the last couple of years, so on the road against Steven Bagwasi, he will leave nothing to chance.
"I know I have to hurt him to get his respect. 
This is my first time to fight an African, so I'm very excited. Tell him the Silencer is coming!"
Vengeance has a new name.
