The Changing Climate Of Professional Boxing

Published

By Jose Corpas

My nose was sunburnt last week. 

Not counting vacations, it was the first time that happened during the winter.  While I was out relishing the near 80-degree March weather, others warned it was not a good thing.  The 30 degree higher than normal temps were because of greenhouse effects they said.  Climate change. 

It was a reminder that not all change is good and it got me to thinking that boxing is in the midst of a climate change of its own.

Around the same time attached thumbs became mandatory and trainers went into a mini-scramble to relearn how to clinch, a pair of other changes were implemented – the ramifications of which are only recently being noticed. 

On December 9, 1982, the WBC announced it was reducing the number of rounds in title fights from 15 to 12 effective January 1, 1983.  Safety was the reason though critics felt they caved in to public pressure following the death of Duk Koo Kim the previous month.  Along with the reduction in rounds, the WBC allowed the use of the standing 8-count in title matches and stated they were awaiting the results of a medical report before increasing the minute rest between rounds to 90 seconds. 

The rest remained 60 seconds.  That further fueled speculation that the reduction in rounds had motives other than safety.  Some believe the fights were shortened to better fit into American television schedules.  Dr. Ferdie Pacheco pointed out that deaths in amateur boxing outnumbered professional fatalities.  Manager and historian Jimmy Jacobs told the Washington Post, “Of the last 26 ring deaths, only four occurred in the 13th, 14th, or 15th rounds.” 

Cus D’Amato asked, “Must we change the rules because we have a bunch of incompetent trainers who don’t train their fighters right?”

Cus tiptoed across the threshold of a problem few discussed.  While he focused on trainers, a consequence of the proliferation of titles and divisions was the need for more challengers.  And some of those “challengers,” because of attrition, were underqualified to be in “championship” fights to begin with.  Aside from an occasional oddity, such as when Pete Rademacher challenged Floyd Patterson for his title in his professional debut, title challengers were experienced veterans at the top of their games.  A generation ago, the upcoming Charles Martin-Anthony Joshua fight would be a crossroads matchup of prospects clamoring for a ranking rather a 12-round fight for the “world title.”

While the notion of 12-round fights being safer than 15-round fights is debatable, the change in strategies because of the shorter limit is making its presence felt.  Over the years pacing changed and body blows are now increasingly deemed less necessary.  A fighter behind in points has to “go for the knockout” much sooner and without the benefits that a sustained body attack would have provided.  Fighters like Eusebio Pedroza, who concentrated on the body until the 12th or 13th round, would likely be forced to shift their attacks to the head as early as the ninth round. 

And because of the shorter distance, more fighters were willing to cut maximum amounts of weight than they would have if faced with three additional rounds because fighting in a potentially weakened state is more attractive to do over 12 rounds rather than 15.  Which brought about another major change right around the same time.

In order to prevent extremes in dehydration, weigh-ins were changed to the day before rather than the day of.  An extra day to rehydrate was safer, proponents stated.  It is crucial, they say, since a dehydrated brain is much more susceptible to not just the sheer force of a blow, but also the repeated cranial accelerations caused by snapping punches.  

Critics, however, point out that day before weigh-ins encourage weight cutting and as a result, cancels out any safety gains.  Some have even gone on to say that, like 12 round limits, bringing out the scales the day before has as much to do with promotional purposes as it does safety.  Promoters now have an extra day to advertise a match, especially when it involves the headline making, pushing and shoving that occur at some weigh-ins.  In the past, there was no time to report such incidents in the papers and, if they were lucky, it received a mention on the evening news.  Today, it would be trending on every social media platform for 24 hours.   

Experts are split on the topic of when a weigh-in should occur.  One thing for certain, day before weigh-ins have increasingly made a mockery of weight limits.  No longer does a light heavyweight need to weigh 175 pounds on the morning of a fight.  In fact, the IBF calls for a second weigh-in the day of and officially allows a fighter to be as much as ten pounds over the contracted weight the day of the fight.  That effectively makes the light heavyweight limit 185 pounds for IBF title fights. 

That partially explains why a former middleweight champion like Vito Antuofermo looks the same size as a modern welterweight like Paulie Malignaggi.  It also helps to explain why Marvin Hagler is dwarfed by someone like Joe Calzaghe, who is presumably only eight pounds heavier. 

Because of this allowance, Sergey Kovalev can step into the ring to defend his 175-pound title while weighing as much as 185 pounds.  In fact, according to unofficial weigh-ins, he tipped the scales as high as 188 the day of his match against Bernard Hopkins.  Consider that Rocky Marciano weighed 184 on the morning he won the heavyweight title.  The heaviest Marciano weighed in for a title fight was 189.  Instead of debating how Marciano would have fared against Wladimir Klitschko, perhaps we should debate how he would’ve fared against Sergey Kovalev. 

The Rock vs Krusher.  5’10 184-189 vs 5’11 185-188. 

HBO’s unofficial, day of, weights have seen Victor Ortiz weigh 164 instead of 147 for the Mayweather fight and Arturo Gatti tip in at 160 for his 141-pound match against Joey Gamache.  Note that Rocky Graziano weighed 154 the day he beat Tony Zale.  How about matching Graziano against Gatti on the undercard of the Kovalev – Marciano fantasy fight? 

Rocky 5'7 154 vs Arturo 5'7 161.  A junior welter vs a middle yet, because of the day before weigh- in, the junior welter is bigger.

Yes, there was a time when a middleweight weighed under 160.  That was back when one reached for the down filled parka instead of the Hawaiian Tropic during winter in New York.

Avila Perspective, Chap. 287: Boxing Wars on Tap in Philadelphia and Las Vegas

Published

on

Avila-Perspective-Chap-287-Boxing-Wars-on-Tap-in-Philadelphia-and-Las-Vegas

Those boxing wars continue.

Rival promoters battle it out in America as Matchroom Boxing shows off its newest prize Jaron Ennis while Top Rank presents a world title fight in the middleweight division.

Take your pick. Both are scintillating.

Philadelphia’s Ennis (31-0, 28 KOs) makes his promotional debut for the British boxing promotion company and faces David Avanesyan (30-4, 18 KOs) for the IBF welterweight world title on Saturday June 13 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. DAZN will stream the Matchroom Boxing card.

It’s been a year since Ennis last fought and meanwhile he was bestowed the IBF title without throwing a punch. He earns it on Saturday.

“Having this time off isn’t going to affect me at all. I just want to get back in the ring,” said Ennis whose last fight was a knockout win over Roiman Villa back on July 8, 2023.

A promotional war ensued for the right to sign Ennis. Matchroom Boxing was the winner and they’re itching to showcase one of the most talked-about welterweights to come along since Sugar Ray Leonard.

Avanesyan was selected to replace original opponent Cody Crowley who was forced to withdraw for medical reasons. The Armenian fighter has upset a few in his career including Sugar Shane Mosley and England’s Josh Kelly a few years back.

He’s not shy.

“I think that this is a 50-50 fight. He’s younger, He’s strong, it’s a very good fight,” said Avanesyan who lives in the United Kingdom.

Ennis had no qualms about facing a veteran like Avanesyan.

“It’s a better fight than Cody Crowley but I’ll beat him up, break him down and get the knockout,” Ennis said.

For the past several years boxing experts have been crowing about the Philadelphia prizefighter’s immense talent. On Saturday in front of a hometown crowd he continues the journey toward stardom.

Also, on the same card female WBC featherweight titlist Skye Nicolson (10-0) defends against Dominican stalwart Dyana Vargas (19-1). The Aussie southpaw makes her first real world title defense.

Las Vegas

IBF and WBO middleweight titlist Zhanibek Alimkhanuly (15-0, 10 KOs) defends against Andrei Mikhailovich (21-0, 13 KOs) on Saturday July 13, at the Palms Casino in Las Vegas, Nevada. ESPN+ will stream the Top Rank boxing card.

Its Kazakhstan versus Russia as Alimkhanuly continues the middleweight tradition established by his countryman Gennady “GGG” Golovkin. Can he continue to dominate?

Alimkhanuly, 31, is a southpaw slugger and still learning how to corral a moving target. But he has power and shouldn’t have a problem finding Mikhailovich who packs power too.

Mikhailovich, 26, fights out of New Zealand but has never had a professional fight outside of the island nation. Will he be able to ignore the glitter of Las Vegas?

Also, Southern California’s Ray Muratalla (20-0, 16 KOs) faces former super featherweight champion Tevin Farmer (33-5-1, 8 KOs) in a lightweight clash set for 10 rounds.

It’s another step-up fight for Muratalla who had a four-fight knockout streak snapped in his last fight against South Africa’s Xolisani Ndongeni this past March. It won’t get any easier against speedy Farmer.

Golden Boy and 360 Promotions

Tickets are available for the super welterweight showdown between Vergil Ortiz and Serhii Bohachuk that takes place on Saturday, Aug. 10, at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in Las Vegas.

A press conference was held today at the Golden Boy headquarters in downtown Los Angeles. Both fighters were present to kick off the promotion that will feature the two fighters with almost 100 percent knockout rate.

Ortiz has won every fight by knockout. Bohachuk’s last fight ended in a win and was the first time he didn’t obtain a victory by knockout. But the Ukrainian fighter did pick up the interim WBC title with the win over Brian Mendoza who previously had knocked out current champion Sebastian Fundora.

Both Bohachuk and Ortiz train in Southern California.

Fights to Watch

Thurs. ESPN+ 11 a.m. Nelson Hysa (17-0) vs Thorsten Fuchs (13-1).

Sat. DAZN 5 p.m. Jaron Ennis (31-0) vs David Avanesyan (30-4-1); Skye Nicolson (10-0) vs Dyana Vargas (19-1).

Sat. ESPN+ 8 p.m. Zhanibek Alimkhanuly (15-0) vs Andrei Mikhailovich (21-0); Ray Muratalla (20-0) vs Tevin Farmer (33-5-1).

Trevor McCumby Fell Off the Map and Now He’s Back with a Big Fight on the Horizon

Trevor-McCumby-Fell-Off-the-Map-and-Now-He's-Back-with-a-Big-Fight-on-the-Horizon

Trevor McCumby Fell Off the Map and Now He’s Back with a Big Fight on the Horizon

There’s a church in Arizona that has its own motto: “A church that cares where you’re going and not where you’ve been.” It’s the catchline of The Rock, a non-denominational Christian church in the Phoenix suburb of Peoria.

That phrase undoubtedly resonates with Trevor McCumby, a member of the congregation. “I’ve been to some dark places,” says McCumby who was working at a 7-11-style convenience store a few years ago and now finds himself on the cusp of some big paydays in the sweet science.

If McCumby’s name rings a bell, it likely relates to something that had its genesis on Nov. 26, 2016, when he knocked out Donovan George in the opening round on a card in Las Vegas.

The result was changed to “no contest” when traces of two banned substances were discovered in McCumby’s pre-fight urine specimen. Also, McCumby acknowledged receiving an intravenous infusion to rehydrate after the weigh-in which was against the rules of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

It wasn’t until July of the following year when McCumby learned his fate. The boxing commission suspended him for 18 months, retroactive to Nov. 26, 2016, and fined him $3,750.

He maintains that he never knowingly took a PED. He pointed the blame at a multi-vitamin supplement allegedly contaminated with anabolic agents. (Trevor’s advice to his fellow boxers: If using a supplement, save the receipt and keep the empty container; it may come in useful someday.)

McCumby quit boxing at this juncture but returned in 2018 and recorded two more wins, pushing his record to 25-0 with 17 knockouts. Eleven of those kayos came in the opening round and that doesn’t include his demolition of Donovan George which effectively never happened.

And then, Trevor McCumby fell off the map. Four-and-a-half years would elapse before he returned to the ring, his comeback stalled by a knee injury suffered in sparring.

A light heavyweight during his run to 25-0, he returned as a super middleweight. Two wins in Phoenix prefaced his ProBox debut on Jan. 31 of this year when he won a lopsided 10-round decision over 17-3-1 Christopher Pearson. Up next is former IBF world super middleweight champion Caleb Plant who has been in with the top dogs in the division. It’s not official yet, but it’s an open secret that McCumby and Plant have agreed to touch gloves on August 17, likely in Florida.

Trevor McCumby, now 31 years old, was introduced to boxing by his father, a police officer in Niles, Illinois, and former Marine who once served as a presidential honor guard. The minimum age for an amateur boxer in Illinois was eight, but the elder McCumby lied about his son’s age and Trevor started competing with oversized gloves at the age of seven. (Trevor McCumby and his dad are pictured in a story about amateur boxing in the Windy City that ran in the Chicago Tribune in April of 1999. At the time, little Trevor would have been six years old.)

The McCumbys then lived in Yorkville, Illinois, a town roughly 50 miles southwest of Chicago. Trevor recalls traveling almost every day after school to the gritty south side of Chicago for training. Sweating side-by-side with inner city kids couldn’t help but speed up his development. He had a fine amateur record (127-11 by his count) and, at age 17, with the Olympics yet two years away, was ready to say “yes” when he got a surprise call from Cameron Dunkin who wanted to manage him. Renowned for his keen eye as a talent scout, the late Mr. Dunkin had one of the foremost stables in boxing.

McCumby was then living in Phoenix. He would finish high school in Las Vegas before making his pro debut in Los Angeles at age 18.

Looking back, Trevor says, “I didn’t take boxing as seriously as I should have. After each win, it was time to go out and party.” His hiatus from boxing was sobering on many levels. Working in a convenience store was humbling and his priorities changed when he met Kenzie (short for McKenzie), a member of the worship committee at The Rock and his future wife. Trevor is now the father of a 3-year-old son, a 1 ½-year-old daughter and there’s another girl on the way, due in November. As for the knee injury, a torn ACL, Trevor says, “it took about a whole year of rehab but feels better now than it ever did.”

McCumby opened his camp for the Plant fight during the week of July 4 at the Top Rank Gym in Las Vegas. His training is being coordinated by Brandon Woods, a protégé of Hall of Fame trainer Kenny Adams.

He and Caleb Plant have a common opponent in a manner of speaking. Plant went 12 rounds with David Benavidez in his last outing, losing a unanimous but relatively close decision. The “strength of schedule factor” in Plant’s favor will weigh heavily in setting the odds for McCumby vs. Plant. But McCumby has also shared the ring with Phoenix-native Benavidez, and on many occasions. “We gave each other great work,” he says. “You could have sold tickets to those sparring sessions.”

There was a time when it seemed that Trevor McCumby would be remembered mostly for putting his hand in the cookie jar and failing to maximize his talent. But hold the phone. His boxing journey is far from finished and this is a story that may ultimately prove uplifting.

Fernando Martinez Ratches Up the Heat in the Hot Super Flyweight Division

Published

on

Fernando-Martinez-Ratches-Up-the-Heat-in-the-Hot-Super-Flyweight-Division

On Sunday in Tokyo, Fernando Martinez picked up a second piece of the world super flyweight title with a mild upset of Kazuto Ioka. Martinez owned the IBF belt and added Ioka’s WBA scalp to his bedpost. That gives the Argentinian globetrotter one more belt than Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez if you are keeping score.

Of course, there isn’t a little man on this planet who would be favored over “Bam” at the moment, excepting Naoya Inoue who competes two divisions up at 122. The San Antonio southpaw was so impressive in dismantling Juan Francisco Estrada on July 29 that he stifled all talk of whether he belongs on the pound-for-pound list. The debate now is about his placement; how high should it be? But despite Bam’s towering presence in the 115-pound division, there are some good fights out there for him beginning with Martinez.

Kazuto Ioka brought quite a resume. The first fighter from Japan to win world titles in four weight divisions, he was 31-2-1 heading in with both losses by split decision and was appearing in his twenty-fifth world title fight. But Martinez showed no fear of him. He took the fight to Ioka and closed strong, winning by scores of 120-108, 117-111, and 116-112. (The 120-108 tally by California judge Edward Hernandez Sr was assailed as ludicrous; the fight was much closer than that…but there was no disputing the verdict, the right guy won.)

A fight with Bam Rodriguez, who was in attendance, would be the most lucrative for Fernando Martinez, but he has other options. WBO belt-holder Kosei Tanaka is out there as is former pound-for-pound king Roman “Chocolatito” Gonzalez. Both are in action this month. Chocolatito (51-4, 41 KOs) fights this coming Friday on his home turf in Managua against Colombian journeyman Rober Barrera (27-5). Tanaka (20-1, 11 KOs) defends his belt on July 20 in Tokyo against Mexico’s Jonathan Rodriguez (25-2-1). Tanaka has won four straight since getting dominated and stopped by Ioka in 2020.

The outcome of the Ioka-Martinez bout was no surprise to Matt McGrain who previewed the contest in these pages. And, as McGain noted, Martinez doesn’t have much time left to build up his fan base outside South America and the Orient. His current record (17-0, 9 KOs) betrays the fact he turns 33 next week.

The smaller weight divisions have never attracted a large following in the United States, but that has something to do with a historical dearth of American-born fighters at the pinnacles. Bam Rodriguez is making even casual fans stand up and take notice and his ascent comes at a time when his division is percolating.
