Three decisions in the past few hours have dominated the boxing scene and spawned a flurry of news episodes on top boxing. The most important: the WBO ordered Terence Crawford’s fight against his mandatory rival, Shawn Porter. In the video I comment on the importance of that decision, its possible consequences and how it affects the long controversy over the quality and level of opposition of Crawford, as always, confronted with that of Canelo Álvarez. Attention with the focus on the video.
The second issue has to do with Oscar De La Hoya, his September 11 fight against Vitor Belfort, was sanctioned by the California Athletic Commission, it will be eight rounds, at 180 pounds and “it will not be an exhibition.” Also in the video I tell you about this madness and its implications from the perspective that things do not seem to be going well for the Golden Boy.
On the third issue, another OMB decision that promises consequences that are impossible to imagine. Its president Francisco ‘Paco’ Valcárcel affirmed that the fight between John Riel Casimero (WBO bantamweight champion) and Guillermo Rigondeaux (WBA bantamweight regular champion) will NOT be a unification, since the WBO only recognizes Naoya Inoue as champion of that division in the AMB and will never unify against regular, interim or on recess ”. Watch the video for our inside and outside view of the thorny issue.
