Top Rank VP: Pacquiao-Horn Was Close, 117-111 Created Issue

Top Rank Vice President Carl Moretti believes the scorecard of 117-111, issued as part of Jeff Horn’s upset win over Manny Pacquiao earlier this win, created the bulk of the issues with the fans and critics who were angered by the outcome.

Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs), who was a tremendous underdog, won a twelve round unanimous decision over Pacquiao before a crowd of 51,000 fans at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.

The three judges scored it 115-113, 115-113 and 117-111.

Moretti believes if all three judges had scored it 115-113 – there may not have been such a big outcry over Horn’s victory.

“I think whenever you do a fight and you are there in person as opposed to sitting in front of a television, you can have different opinions on who won the fight. I think the one thing everybody can agree on was that it was a close fight. I think the biggest problem of it was that the first score announced that Waleska Roldan came in with 117-111, and it just wasn’t that type of fight, so that sort of set the tone for controversy and people going crazy over the decision,” Moretti said to On The Ropes Boxing Radio.

“If all three judges would have had it 115-113, I’m not so sure that you would have seen the outcry that you did, but when the first score announced is 117-111, people were ‘Oh this is crazy, it wasn’t that type of a fight,’ and it wasn’t, it was a close fight either way. I think that sort of set the tone and the language for people to go and complain about it. I think it was a close fight and Jeff Horn got it, so people thought at ring side that Jeff Horn legitimately won it, and a lot of people thought that Manny won it.”

There is a rematch clause in the contract. Pacquiao has yet to exercise that option. The Filipino superstar is currently a senator in the Philippines and some members of his team believe the boxer’s successful political career has created some issues when it comes to having a well run training camp.

“I think Manny should take some time with what his decision is going to be. I think he has to try and figure a way to balance out being a senator and still being a professional fighter. Once he can figure that out, then he’ll have a clearer path for us to see what he wants to do. But it’s his decision and we will wait to see what he wants to do,” Moretti said.

OTRA DECISION POLEMICA – JEFF HORN NO FUE UN RIVAL CUALQUIERA

BRISBANE, Australia (AP) — Manny Pacquiao no sólo tuvo que disputar los 12 asaltos en una pelea en que era considerado el amplio favorito. El filipino terminó perdiendo el cetro welter de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo por un fallo unánime pero controversial.

No era precisamente lo que esperaba el entrenador de Pacquiao ni el púgil 11 veces monarca mundial, cuyo futuro ha quedado ahora en la incertidumbre.

Freddie Roach, el entrenador de Pacquiao, sugirió que su pupilo de años lograría un nocaut “rápido y dulce” en el combate del domingo, denominado “Batalla de Brisbane. En vez de ello, el local Jeff Horn se impuso por puntos en su primer pleito por un título mundial, ante el delirio de 51.052 espectadores.

El también senador filipino de 38 años llegó a esta ciudad australiana una semana antes de la pelea, en un vuelo fletado que transportaba a más de un centenar de seguidores. Se marcha sin el cinturón de la OMB.

Los tres jueces dieron la victoria a Horn. El estadounidense Waleska Roldan dio 117-111, su compatriota Chris Flores entregó una anotación de 115.113, al igual que el argentino Ramón Cerdán.

Varios críticos consideraron localista el fallo. Destacan las estadísticas según las cuales Pacquiao propinó dos veces más golpes de poder que su adversario.

“Es la decisión de los jueces y la respeto”, comentó Pacquiao, citado por ESPN. “Tenemos una cláusula de revancha, así que no hay problema”.

En ese sentido, el futuro próximo del filipino sería un nuevo enfrentamiento ante el australiano. Más allá de eso, el panorama no es tan claro.

Durante la semana, Roach había dicho que Pacquiao tendría dos alternativas después de enfrentar a Horn: Buscar un segundo combate frente a Floyd Mayweather o contemplar el retiro.

“Manny está en una situación en que debe ganar. Quiere una revancha con Mayweather”, comentó Roach. “Con Mayweather hay que lucir bien ante un rival, hay que impresionar”.

Difícilmente “Money” Mayweather está impresionado.

El entrenador de acondicionamiento físico de Pacquiao, Justin Fortune, no se guardó los comentarios negativos hacia los jueces.

“Manny perdió la pelea, pero Jeff Horn parece una calabaza”, dijo Fortune en referencia al rostro enrojecido, hinchado y ensangrentado de su compatriota australiano. “¿Qué hay entonces con esas anotaciones, con esas tarjetas? Estaban al revés”.

No obstante, Fortune aceptó que Pacquiao debió haber conjurado el riesgo de un fallo controversial.

“Cuando peleas en casa de otro, necesitas hacer más cosas. Es mejor noquearlo”, comentó. “Así es el boxeo. A veces te da y en otras te quita. Pero cuando vienes a casa de alguien debes tener mejores argumentos y nunca dejar esto en manos de los jueces”.

Horn comenzó fuerte y ganó al menos tres de los primeros cinco asaltos en las anotaciones. Pero Pacquiao, quien recibió dos veces atención por una cortada en la cabeza (en el sexto y séptimo round), pareció dominar las hostilidades desde el octavo.

Estuvo cerca de finiquitar el pleito en el noveno, cuando golpeó de forma inclemente a Horn, quien se tambaleó. Incluso el réferi Mark Nelson preguntó al local si podía seguir.

El exprofesor de escuela, de 29 años, respondió afirmativamente. Confiaba en que tenía la ventaja en las tarjetas.

“Desde luego me sentía algo aturdido, pero… tenía que continuar”, indicó. “No me doy por vencido. Los australianos no se rinden para empezar. Hemos demostrado que somos unos ganadores. Fue la verdadera Batalla de Brisbane, absolutamente increíble”.

El copromotor Bob Arum consideró que “fue una pelea apretada, que pudo ser para cualquiera”.

“Hubo un par de rounds apretados, pero no se puede discutir con el resultado”, manifestó. “Hice la anotación y vi que Jeff ganó muchos de los primeros rounds. Luego vi que Manny había repuntado a la mitad de la pelea. Jeff realmente ganó el duodécimo. Si le das a Manny el 11, tienes un empate, si le das a Jeff el 11, es 7-5”.

Roach no está tan seguro ahora de que sea el momento del retiro. Tampoco Horn considera que Pacquiao vaya a alejarse pronto de los cuadriláteros.

“Estoy seguro de que querrá volver. Fue una decisión cerrada, y estoy seguro de que él quiere regresar y demostrar algo”, dijo.

Arum confirmó que hay una cláusula de revancha. Sin embargo, aclaró que esperará antes de hablar con Pacquiao sobre el tema.

“No conozco la postura de Manny en el futuro. ¿Va a seguir en la política y a dejar el boxeo? No lo sé y él tampoco”, sentenció Arum. “Sería injusto preguntarle ahora”.

Horn: Atlas Tried To Ruin My Moment, Say What You Want Teddy!

WBO welterweight champion Jeff Horn (17-0-1, 11 KOs) was not happy with the way Teddy Atlas spoke to him, during their post-fight interview.

Horn is the new owner of the WBO championship after a controversial points victory against Pacquiao on Sunday in a brutal slugfest at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia.

The unanimous decision in favour of the 29-year-old has prompted a storm of debate over the scorecards, with a host of prominent US celebrities, broadcasters and sports stars weighing in, and some even suggesting the outcome was rigged.

Judges Waleksa Roldan (117-111), Chris Flores (115-113) and Ramon Cerdan (115-113) adjudicated the fight. Roldan and Flores are from the United States and Cerdan is from Argentina, yet there have been accusations it was a hometown decision.

According to CompuBox statistics, Horn landed just 92 punches to Pacquaio’s 182, but some rounds were tight and difficult to score.

Atlas, a veteran trainer and longtime boxing analyst, was working ringside as part of ESPN’s broadcast team.

When the decision was announced, Atlas was furious and expressed his anger to millions of viewers who were catching ESPN’s coverage.

“They gave a trophy, a win, a huge win to Horn, the local kid for trying hard,” Atlas moaned. “You’re not supposed to get it for trying hard, you’re supposed to get it for winning!”

Then, in a post-fight interview at ringside, Atlas told Horn to his face that he didn’t think he won the fight.

“Congratulations, great effort, but I thought you lost,” Atlas said. Pacquiao, standing alongside them, cracked a wide smile.

On Monday, Horn explained that he felt the timing of Atlas’ rant was lacking class.

“Everyone has a right to their opinion. The timing of their opinions can be a bit off sometimes. He was trying to ruin the moment for me at that point. It would have been good for him to say it another time. Say what you want, Teddy,” Horn said.

WBO Welterweight Championship Title Bout

Location: Suncorp Stadium, Brisbane, Queensland, Australia

Promoter:    Top Rank / Bob Arum

Supervisor:   Francisco Valcarcel, Esq.

Referee:  Mark Nelson

Judges:  Waleska Roldan (117-111), Chris Flores (115-113), Ramon Cerdan (115-113)

Results:   The WBO Welterweight Title was obtained by a new World Champion Jeff Horn against Manny Pacquiao by Unanimous Decision.

TV: USA ESPN, Panama RPC Channel 4, Australia Main Event, New Zealand Sky Arena, Canada Super Channel

Officials for Manny Pacquiao in “The Battle of Brisbane” Named

The referees, judges and supervisors for this Sunday’s world title defenses of Filipino world champions Manny Pacquiao have already been assigned by the respective sanctioning bodies as both Pinoy champions are set defend their world crowns in “The Battle of Brisbane” before an audience of 50,000+ fans at the Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane, Australia, this coming Sunday July 2. 

Officials are all neutral and experienced, so fans can breath a sight of relief. The WBO officials for Manny Pacaquiao against Brisbane challenger Jeff Horn are:  

Referee Mark Nelson of Minesota, USA. Judges: Mrs. Waleska Roldan of New York, Mr. Chris Flores of Arizona, USA. and Mr. Ramón Cerdán of Argentina. 

The last time Mr. Mark Nelson – a referee since 1992 – worked as a third man in a world title fight was in the WBO/WBC super lightweight world title defense of unified undefeated champion Terence Crawford (31-0, 22 KO’s) against challenger John Molina Jr. Crawford knocked out Molina in eight rounds, with referee Mark Nelson doing his usual outstanding work. 

Mrs. Waleska Roldan’s last officiating work in a world title clash was as recent as last March at the Madison Square Garden in New York in the close, bloody super flyweight title defense of 30-year-old Nicaraguan 4-division world champion Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez against Thailand challenger Srisaket Sor Rungvisai (also known as Wisaksil Wangek).  

After the twelve torrid rounds of non-stop dramatic action, Chocolatito lost his crown in a controversial split decision. But Ma’am Waleska voted a 113-113 draw, a scorecard hailed by a great number of fans and boxing writers as the fight’s best scoring.  

The second Pacquiao judge is Chris Flores, who is also a referee. Mr. Flores was ringside in Mexico last May as judge in the third defense of IBF 105-lbs world champion Jose Argumedo of Mexico against Colombian challenger Gabriel Mendoza. No scorecards were needed as the Argumedo ended matters with a TKO over Mendoza in round 8. 

And the third Pacquiao judge, Ramon Cerdan, is a veteran judge in hundreds of fights since 1998. 

Mr. Cerdán was with pen and paper on hand just three weeks ago in his native Argentina as a judge in an all-Argentinian affair: the title defense of WBO/WBA/IBF of super lightweight world champion Ana Laura Esteche defending against her Argentina compatriot Adela Celeste del Carmen Peralta.  

It was a split decision. Two ringside judges saw Esteche winning. However, judge Ramón Cerdán voted for Peralta. Esteche retained her crown.  

The supervisor in the Pacquiao-Horn fight is none other than WBO President Francisco “Paco” Varcarcel of Puerto Rico, a man of boxing who loves Manny Pacquiao and loves fair scoring.

Japanese veteran speedster Katsunari Takayama (31-8-1NC, 12 KOs), 105, acquired the vacant WBO 105-pound belt as he was awarded a unanimous technical decision over 18-year-old prospect Riku Kano (10-2-1, 5 KOs), 105, due to Takayama’s deteriorated laceration at 0:58 of the sixth round on Saturday in Sanda, Japan. Salven Lagumbay (Philippines) scored the competitive fight 58-56, Waleska Roldan (US) and Lynne Carter (US) had it 59-56 and 59-55 respectively, all for the 33-yer-old ex-titlist. As expected, the notorious bleeder Takayama bled from a gash over the left eyebrow due to an accidental butt from the third on, but not as expected, the victor wasn’t his opponent but Takayama. When the referee Danrex Tapdasan of the Philippines halted the affair midway in round six, some 3,000 spectators, most of whom were Kano adherents, believed Kano was a winner by a TKO. But the fact was a technical decision, which resulted in a victory for Takayama against Sanda citizens’ earnest expectations.

People wanted to see the fight until the end, because they realized Takayama’s tendency of slowing down in later rounds and the much younger Kano would display his superior stamina therein. But the technical decision shuttered Kano’s ambition as well as Sanda people’s expectations.

Kano, a southpaw youngster, made a good start by connecting with southpaw right hooks to the onrushing veteran Takayama in the opening session. The second saw Takayama start to show his trademark quick combinations upstairs and downstairs regardless of precision. Since then, Kano occasionally caught the veteran with southpaw lefts followed by right hooks, but Takayama proved busier in mixing up by pinning Kano to the ropes. Kano, in round four, was so aggressive that he kept stalking the older foe, but Takayama landed a solid right to shake him up in the middle of the session.

People realized Kano could punch harder, but he punched at a time, while Takayama threw punches in combination to the face and the body. The audience was stunned to see the bout abruptly stopped midway in the sixth, when the ringside physician advised the third man to halt the affair against people’s expectations.

Takayama thus acquired the world belt on five occasions to his credit, while Kano tasted a bitter setback despite a warm support by his manager/promoter/trainer Taisei Marumoto, ex-OPBF welter champ. But it may be true that Kano needs more experience and this defeat might be a good lesson for his future surge.

Takayama said, “I wished to fight until the end to win the world belt. I feel sorry to the ambitious Kano, who is talented and will zoom up in the near future. We may have to fight again.”

The upcoming promoter Marumoto was crestfallen, but said, “People here might feel indigestion at such a termination, but I’ll promote a rematch at our earliest convenience to show them the unseen second half of the bout.”

Abraham: Smith will not see the 12th round

Arthur Abraham v Nikola Sjekloca - WBO Super Middleweight World Chammpionship

WBO super middleweight champion Arthur Abraham is annoyed by insinuations that he won his first fight with Paul Smith by a bad decision rendered by judges Waleska Roldan (117-111), Fernando Laguna (119-109), Zoltan Enyedi (117-111). “King Arthur” says plans to defeat Smith decisively when they meet again on February 21 at the o2 World Arena in Berlin, Germany.

“I want to clarify once again clearly who is the champion here,” said Abraham. “Paul Smith had a good performance in the first fight, I was just better. Why there was all this whining in the English media about a bad decision I don’t understand. Neither I nor the promoter choose the judges. Like the last time, they are chosen by the world federation.”

As for Smith’s assertion that the immediate rematch was granted because Abraham was ashamed of getting the decision in the first fight, Abraham stated, “That is absolute rubbish! Smith only wants to provoke me. He should train hard because in the rematch I will show no mercy. Actually I just want to prove it to the English press who made the first fight into a scandal.”

Tomoki Kameda Nuevo Campeón Mundial

Por Carlos Costa en Ringside en Cebu, Filipinas –

CEBU, Filipinas  –  El japones Tomoki “El Mexicanito” Kameda se convirtio en el nuevo campeón mundial gallo de la OMB al destronar por decisión unánime al ahora ex-campeón Paulus Ambunda de Namibia en la noche de hoy Jueves (Agosto 1) aquí en el Waterfront Resort y Casino en Cebú, Filipinas.

Con su triunfo, Kameda, logro que el nombre de el y su otros dos hermanos, Koki y Daiki, entraran en los libros de historia al ser la primera vez que tres hermanos se coronan como campeones del mundo de boxeo.

IMG_8438

El invicto nuevo campeon del mundo utilizo inteligentemente sus mejor estatura, alcance, velocidad y tecnica para dominar a un voluntarioso Ambunda quien no logro descifrar ni la rapidez ni los movimientos defensivos Tomoki.

IMG_8483

La puntuación de los jueces fue:  juez Carlos Colon de Puerto Rico 118-110, juez Thomas Miller de Ohio 116-112 y jueza W. Rolda de Nueva York 117-111, todos a favor del nuevo campeón gallo de la Organización Mundial de Boxeo (OMB).

Una de las mejores armas del japones en contra del Namibio fue su gancho de izquierda, el cual conecto de ello en reiteradas ocasiones durante el acelerado combate que nunca ceso en intensidad.

IMG_8448

El jab de izquierda cayo un incontable numero de veces en la cabeza de Ambunda quien demostró cierto talento y excelentes condiciones fisicas, pero no suficiente técnica para meterse en la guardia de Tomoki Kameda y hacer daño.

Durante los descansos, el ahora campeon gallo de la OMB era atendido por su hermano mayor Koki Kameda, actual campeon gallo de la AMB.

IMG_8546Fue un combate caliente de principio a fin e intercambios como este fueron la norma, pero la mejor destreza del Japones lo llevo a la gloria en el dia de hoy.
