Views: 27670ADD COMMENT 8 years ago

erin_glovesAfter a tumultuous year, Australian professional boxing champion Erin McGowan, is set to put her career back on track after spending the week before Christmas looking at potential training gyms in Sydney for future bouts on the East coast.
Last year saw the Perth-based boxer and Pan Asian Boxing Association super featherweight and lightweight title holder beat Angie Parr in the first free to air televised female boxing bout in Australia.
But she also experienced a few setbacks as well. A deliberately lit fire saw her Perth gym razed to the ground, and most of her trophies destroyed. She was also acquitted of two assault charges last year.

906V6154WBA International Middleweight Championship 12×3

Anthony Mundine (38–3 23KOs) used his superior hand speed and better work rate to outpoint the game and tough Rob Medley (27–3 17KOs). Mundine was the aggressor throughout and continually beat Medley to the punch but each time when you thought Mundine was gaining the ascendancy, Medley would answer with his own combination. In an entertaining fast paced affair, Mundine landed the greater volume of punches to win an unanimous decision by the scores of 117/113, 117/115, 117/112.

906V4381Super Middleweight 7×3
Garth Wood (7–1 3KOs) used his unconventional, awkward style to great effect to upset the highly favourite Kariz Kariuki (21–8–2 18KOs) in the Australian Contender Final. Wood was able to land his right hands and negated Kariuki’s height and reach advantages. In the end, the judges had it for Wood in a surprisingly split decision victory, 68/66, 66/68, 68/65.

Boxing NSW issues call out for BAI members

Views: 40560ADD COMMENT 8 years ago

After being disaffiliated from Boxing Australia Incorporated in early December, former Boxing NSW judges and referees are petitioning to sign up more than 500 voting members of BAI in order to win control of the new organization (Boxing Australia (NSW)) that will control Boxing in NSW.
The disaffiliation was a result of years of infighting between Boxing NSW and the breakaway group the NSW Amateur Boxing League, which centered on complaints concerning former Boxing NSW chief administrator Arthur Tunstall.
While it is understood the ABL have received a strong indication from the BAI that they will be able to control the new committee and constitution, Boxing NSW is well on its way to gathering enough votes to present a sizable opposition to such a force.
They haves put together a board of seven members including three PCYC official holders.
“We have included a good representation from the PCYC on this proposed board and see this as a solid union in securing the future of boxing in Australia,” the petition says.

Views: 12530ADD COMMENT 8 years ago

Sakio Bika, the IBO World Champion and Contender winner can't get a fight. Why, Mundine keeps getting called out, Kessler wont fight him cause „they're friends“ and the others???? So why wont anyone fight Bika? He is well known in the U.S, so there will be interest for anyone willing to step in the ring with him. Could it be when Calzaghe said that Bika was his toughest fight that he really meant…avoid the SCORPION at all costs !!
