Plania consiguió importante victoria en Las Vegas

El peso gallo filipino Mike Plania (24-1, 12 Ko`s) se anotó una de las victorias más importantes de su carrera, al derrotar por decisión mayoritaria al estadounidense Joshua Greer Jr. (22-2-2, 12 Ko’s), en el combate estelar de una cartelera presentada por Top Rank, este martes por la noche en el MGM Grand de Las Vegas, Nevada y transmitida por ESPN.

Plania mandó dos veces a la lona a Greer. La primera en el final del primer asalto y la segunda ocasión en el sexto, con ganchos de izquierda al rostro, que le permitieron imponerse claramente en dos de las tres tarjetas de los jueces: 96-92 y 97-91, mientras que el tercero anotó un empate 94-94.

Greer realizó un gran cierre de combate, pero no le bastó para conseguir la victoria ante un peleador filipino que lucía agotado pero que mostró un gran corazón para romper la racha ganadora de 19 peleas de Greer.

En otros resultados de esta entretenida cartelera de Top Rank, el invicto súper welter Bobirzhan Mominov (11-0, 8 nocauts) logró una decisión unánime en seis asaltos sobre Cameron Krael (17-16-3, 4 nocauts).

El peso completo Héctor Pérez (7-2, 3 nocauts) superó a Juan Torres (5-3-1, 2 nocauts) .

El invicto supermedio Nikoloz Sekhniashvili (6-0, 4 nocauts) derrotó a Isiah Jones (8-2, 3 nocauts).

Round 12: Boxing is back

Round 12: Boxing is back

By Mauricio Sulaimán / WBC President – Son of José Sulaimán

Top Rank, one of the world’s most powerful boxing companies, which is led by legendary Bob Arum, has restarted activity at the MGM Grand hotel in Las Vegas, Nevada.

After three months of total silence in our sport, there were two shows on Tuesday and Thursday, in which a total of 10 fights were held.

I was very pleased to see the medical-administrative protocol that was applied, both by the Nevada State Athletic Commission and by the promoter .

This protocol came into force to maximize the safety and care of all the participants in the evenings, which includes the tests by COVID-19, and its importance was categorically confirmed, since  fighter Mikaela Mayer tested positive and was out of the card. But the most important thing was to see all the actions that were taken for the well being of all.

In Mexico, the activity will begin next Saturday, June 20. Promociones Zanfer will present a boxing card behind closed doors at the facilities of La Casa del Boxeo, Televisión Azteca.

Zanfer has reached a high degree of professionalism and has worked hand in hand with a significant number of experts, applying the protocol to the letter.

The COVID-19 tests are being administered by the GD Technologies laboratory, under a strict security protocol. Also this card demonstrated the importance of following these safety rules, as also the former world champion, Silvia Torres, tested positive for this coronavirus. She was immediately contacted by one of the medical directors of the WBC program, Dr. Pablo Orozco Obregón, who will be monitoring her evolution, since she is asymptomatic. Tests have already been scheduled for her family and the boxer will be in isolation.

Zanfer has scheduled three consecutive boxing shows, which have been endorsed by federal authorities, where it was confirmed that sporting events can be held without an audience.

Also, Promociones del Pueblo and Televisa have started activities and Ricardo Maldonado is ready to present boxing-related topics, with his monthly Telemundo series featuring Tutico Zabala.

There is great interest from international promoters in bringing  boxing events to Mexico, which is motivating for the national industry.

We are working intensively on the support program for low-profile promoters, who do not have the support of television companies and sponsors. There are a significant number of promoters in Mexico, and we have already had video conference meetings.

On the same theme, the song México Cuenta Conmigo, created by José Cantoral, continues to be the inspiration for thousands of people. This week we received countless messages from migrants who are in the United States, in which he expressed his joy to see the best athletes in the history of our country, united, by this letter that inspires and encourages us in the most difficult moments. You can’t miss it, here you can find it
