    BOXING
    Professional vs. amateur boxing
    Throughout the 17th through 19th centuries, boxing bouts were motivated by money, as the fighters competed for prizes, promoters controlled the gate, and spectators bet on the result. The modern Olympic movement revived interest in amateur sports, and amateur boxing became an Olympic sport in 1908. In their current form, Olympic and other amateur bouts are typically limited to three or four rounds, scoring is computed by points based on the number of clean blows landed, regardless of impact, and fighters wear protective headgear, reducing the number of injuries, knockdowns, and knockouts. Professional boxing remains by far the most popular form of the sport globally, though amateur boxing is dominant in Cuba and some former Soviet republics. For most fighters, an amateur career, especially at the Olympics, serves to develop skills and gain experience in preparation for a professional career.

    Amateur boxing
    Headgear is mandatory in amateur boxingMain article: Amateur boxing
    Amateur boxing may be found at the collegiate level, at the Olympic Games and Commonwealth Games, and in many other venues sanctioned by amateur boxing associations. Amateur boxing has a point scoring system that measures the number of clean blows landed rather than physical damage. Bouts comprise of four rounds of two minutes in the Olympic and Commonwealth Games, and three rounds of two minutes in a national ABA (Amateur Boxing Association) bout, each with a one-minute interval between rounds.
    [​IMG]
    Competitors wear protective headgear and gloves with a white strip across the knuckle. A punch is considered a scoring punch only when the boxers connect with the white portion of the gloves. Each punch that lands on the head or torso is awarded a point. A referee monitors the fight to ensure that competitors use only legal blows (a belt worn over the torso represents the lower limit of punches - any boxer repeatedly landing "low blows" (below the belt) is disqualified). Referees also ensure that the boxers don't use holding tactics to prevent the opponent from swinging (if this occurs, the referee separates the opponents and orders them to continue boxing. Repeated holding can result in a boxer being penalized, or ultimately, disqualified). Referees will stop the bout if a boxer is seriously injured, if one boxer is significantly dominating the other or if the score is severely imbalanced. Amateur bouts which end this way may be noted as "RSC" (referee stopped contest) with notations for an outclassed opponent (RSCO), outscored opponent (RSCOS), injury (RCSI) or head injury (RSCH).

    Professional boxing
    Professional bouts are usually much longer than amateur bouts, typically ranging from ten to twelve rounds, though four round fights are common for less experienced fighters or club fighters. Through the early twentieth century, it was common for fights to have unlimited rounds, ending only when one fighter quit or the fight was stopped by police. In the 1910s and 1920s, a fifteen-round limit gradually became the norm, benefiting high-energy fighters like Jack Dempsey. Fifteen rounds remained the internationally recognized limit for championship fights for most of the twentieth century, until the late 1980s, when championship bouts were shortened to twelve rounds to improve safety.
    [​IMG]

    Headgear is not permitted in professional bouts, and boxers are generally allowed to take much more punishment before a fight is halted. At any time, however, the referee may stop the contest if he believes that one participant cannot defend himself due to injury. In that case, the other participant is awarded a technical knockout win. A technical knockout would also be awarded if a fighter lands a punch that opens a cut on the opponent, and the opponent is later deemed not fit to continue by a doctor because of the cut. For this reason, fighters often employ cutmen, whose job is to treat cuts between rounds so that the boxer is able to continue despite the cut. If a boxer simply quits fighting, or if his corner stops the fight, then the winning boxer is also awarded a technical knockout victory. In contrast with amateur boxing, professional male boxers have to be bare chested.

    GUIDE TO PUNCHING


    The Jab
    The jab is the most important punch in the book because it operates in the shortest distance between yourself and the opponent. It can be used as a form of attack or defence and once you have a beautiful jab, you can control a fight. Ray Leonard, Muhammad Ali and Thomas Hearns all had great jabs.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    The Cross (straight)
    The cross is used as a form of attack but it can be used as a counter to stop your opponent coming forward. Or really as a powerpunch to take control of a fight. One of the greatest exponents of this punch was Alexis Arguello. And in his heyday, Mike Tyson could deliver a fearsome cross.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    The Hook
    It is quite difficult to learn the hook because you have to arch and turn your body into the shot. But it comes out of your line of vision and done properly, you can’t see it coming. Evander Holyfield had a good left hook, as did Julio Cesar Chavez and Mexican fighters generally love the left hook to the body.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    The Uppercut
    You bring the uppercut up and it comes underneath your opponent’s jaw, who can’t see it coming and it does look very dramatic. It is a dangerous punch because when you throw it, you do leave yourself open. It’s more effective when you’re fighting inside.
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]


    The Block
    You get different types of defence - a fighter like Mike Tyson uses his attack as defence. Good boxers use lateral movement - good hand and foot movement and sharp reflexes. Old school fighters like Roberto Duran just used to slip punches and he would make people miss by the smallest of margins.
    [​IMG]




    GUIDE TO BOXING STYLES



    Punchers (fighters)
    A puncher is usually, not always, a bully. They are very powerful and are always in exciting fights because they have the ability to turn a fight around with one punch. The punchers I enjoyed watching were Tommy Hearns and Mike Tyson when he was younger.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Boxers/punchers (semi boxers)
    These stylish fighters are well schooled and can do a bit of everything. I think they are the hardest kind of guys to fight. Perhaps the most famous was Sugar Ray Robinson, who was the original Sugar man and had everything - a good boxing brain, good power, good skill and could take a punch.
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    Defensive boxers (pure boxers)
    A pure boxer is someone like Herol Graham, who could hit hard but would generally wear you down. If you do something well enough over a period of time and you just go chip, chip, chip, eventually the opponent comes tumbling down. A lot of Brendan Ingle’s fighters are of that mould. There are not too many purely defensive boxers out there. Johnny Nelson was one who used to go in and just survive but he has developed now and added to that.

    Abraham stops Demers to defend IBF middleweight title

    BAMBERG, Germany -- Germany's Arthur Abraham stopped Canada's Sebastien Demers in the third round Saturday night in a one-sided fourth defense of his IBF middleweight title.
    Abraham (23-0, 18 knockouts) dropped Demers with a right hook with seconds left in the round after hitting the Canadian with numerous hard shots.

    Abraham fought Saturday with two titanium plates and 22 screws in his jaw. Eight months ago, the Armenian-born German's jaw was broken twice before he hung on to outpoint Edison Miranda.
    "When I won, I looked at my corner because I was proud. It was a question of honor," Abraham said.
    Demers (20-1) had never fought outside of Canada and was ranked just 15th by the IBF, but handled himself well until Abraham caught him flush with a right on the ropes.
    After that, he absorbed blows for 30 seconds and staggered around the ring trying to escape Abraham until he went down.
    Demers said beforehand he was going after Abraham's jaw.
    "I tried, but he moves very well," Demers said. "He's a great boxer, but I thought I fought good for three rounds."

    "Alfaro chops down Corley!"

    [​IMG]


    May 13, 2005 - Former world champion DeMarcus "Chop Chop" Corley was surprisingly chopped down by Jose Alfaro in round eight of a lightweight bout on Saturday night at Casino Pharaohs in Managua, Nicaragua. Alfaro was down in round one, but got rolling soon after with a brutal body attack that dropped Corley in rounds six, seven and eight. Corley, who had challenged for the WBC title in his last fight, drops to 31-6-1, 17 KOs, while Alfaro, a loser of three of his last seven coming in, improves to 18-3 with 17 KOs. The bout took place on the WBA's annual "KO Drugs" card.

    In other notable action, Israel Hector Enrique Perez won a twelve round majority decision over Rene Gonzalez in a WBA featherweight elimination bout and former WBA middleweight champion Mariano Natalio Carrera scored a fourth round TKO over Oney Valdez in his comeback fight. Carrera lost the title after testing positive for a banned sustance.

    There were three more title bouts on the card. Roman Gonzalez destroyed demolished Jose Luis Varela in the first round of a WBA FEDELATIN minimumweight title bout. Nerys Espinoza won a ten round unanimous decision over Jose Garcia Bernal in a WBA Fedelatin light flyweight title clash. Daniel Diaz ten round unanimous decision over Timur Shailezov in a NABA bantamweight bout.

    the LEGEND:

    Muhammad Ali
    (Cassius Clay)


    [​IMG] [​IMG]

    [​IMG] [​IMG]



    A boy named Cassius Clay's bike got stolen. When he was looking for it he kept repeating I'm gonna beat that kid up when i find him. Ironically he looked in a boxing gym where he was interested in boxing. Muhammad Ali fought in the ring, as well outside the ring. He was one of the greatest boxers of all time, but if he didn't fight for rights for blacks outside the ring many people would not know who he was. Cassius Clay was born on January 17, 1942 in LouisvilleKentucky His parents were Cassius and Odessa Clay.The city he lived in was in the south and Clay was inspired to change whites minds about blacks.As i told you in the introduction he started boxing because his bike was stolen.
    Before 1960 Clay won two national AAU titles, and two Kentucky gold gloves. In 1960 Clay won a Olympic gold medal for lightweight boxing. His first major fight as a pro was in February 1964 against Sonny Liston. Everyone thought Clay would lose, but he won.Liston wanted a rematch and he still won he was heavyweight champion of the world. Before the rematch Clay changed his name to Muhammad Ali and converted to Islam.
    Ali got married four times his first wife was Sonja Roi his second wife was Belinda Boyd they had four kids Maryum, twins Rasheeda and Jamilla, and Muhammad junior. His third wife was Veronica Porshe they had two girls Itana and Laila, his currant wife is Lonnie Williams they adopted Assad Amin. Ali lost three years of boxing because he refused to be inducted into the army.
    He thought that the Vietnamese were not racist to him so why should he go kill them. When he came back to boxing he fought Joe Frazier in 1974, but he lost. In 1974 Ali fought George Foreman in Zaire people called this "the rumble in the jungle". George Foreman got too tired and Ali knocked him out,and was the champion once again. In 1975 Ali fought his rival Joe Frazier again in Manila,Philippines. People called this fight "the thrilla in Manila". Ali won this fight he said that was the hardest fight he ever fought. Muhammad Ali retired in 1981 with a record of 56 wins, 5 losses, and 37 knockouts.
    He influenced other people to box, but most importantly he inspired other people by helping "KO" racism. One of the most inspiring moments in Ali's life was when he held the flame for the 1996 Olympics,many people thought it was sad to see him shaking because of his Parkinson's disease.
    Now Ali lives on a farm with his wife, Lonnie in Berrien Springs, Michigan.

    Cotto, more than ready for Judah
    May 31, 2007 - After Wednesday’s training session in Caguas, Puerto Rico, WBA Welterweight champion Miguel Cotto looked confident and ready for his next defense of the title, against Zab Judah, June 9 at the Madison Square Garden. "We did such a great training camp and I feel great. I’m more than ready to fight Judah and expect a great fight,” Cotto said.

    [​IMG]

    On Wednesday Cotto opened his training camp to the media at the Bairoa gym, where he made all the preparations for June 9 showdown.

    "We started training 10 weeks ago so I have a great condition, no doubt about it. I hope Judah is in great shape as well in order to give the fans what they are looking for,” Cotto added. After receiving the press members, Cotto had a four round sparring session with Venezuelan prospect Patrick Lopez.
    “The toughest part of the training is done. All it is left now is losing some weight to make the 147 lbs., but that won’t be a problem,” Cotto said. Cotto and his team will travel to New York on Friday as they have several promotional commitments in the Big Apple.

    “It is always something special to fight in NYC for me. Because the fans there have always supported me strongly. And I hope they will do it again this time,” Cotto said.
    Cotto will be having an open training session in the Bronx on Saturday and will visit the Shea Stadium on Sunday to share some time with his friends Carlos Beltran and Carlos Delgados, NY Mets stars.
    Only a few tickets are left for the Cotto vs. Judah fight. Originally, 16,500 tickets went on sale and were soon gone, so the Madison Square Garden and Top Rank decided to open the upper mezzanine section creating an additional 3,000 seats ($50 each). This will be the first time since 2001 The Garden has opened the mezzanine for a boxing event.

    Sturm vs. Abraham unification heats up


    May 31, 2007 - During a press conference held on Wednesday in Stuttgart to officially present his next defense of the WBA Middleweight title against a foe yet to be named, Felix Sturm said that a unification bout with IFB king Arthur Abraham is not likely to happen anytime soon.

    [​IMG]

    "I have already offered it 1,000 times," Sturm told German new agency DPA. "I would welcome it with pleasure. But two things differentiate us: Sauerland talks a lot and we do a lot....I can't imagine that Mr. Sauerland would risk his only world champion against me."
    Sturm is under contract with German powerhouse promoter company Universum Box Promotions while Abraham belong to rival promoter Sauerland Event. Meanwhile, Sauerland Event’s president Wilfried Sauerland stated that "I don´t know to whom he directed those offers but we did not receive anything at all," "There has just been one offer - last year and from us. We put it in written form to his promoters."
    Last Saturday King Arthur defended his IBF crown with a third-round stoppage of Sebastien Demers. "Arthur is in the best shape of his life. He has never boxed that well," trainer Ulli Wegner lauded. Sauerland holds a similar view - and would love to stage a unification fight. "Sturm would be our favourite opponent for a unification," he stated. "I am 1,000 percent sure that Arthur would beat him. Our offer is still the same. One could always negotiate financial questions. Furthermore, Sturm keeps saying he wants to fight the best - and Arthur is certainly among them."

    WBA # 4 Kono takes 15-year-old Kameda’s challenge
    By Hisao Adachi

    May 29, 2007 - WBA # 4 Super Flyweight Kohei Kono (18-3, 7 KOs) has declared himself available to be Koki Kameda’s youngest brother Tomoki’s sparring partner, after Kameda’s father and trainer Shiro had said last week that we would personally scout 15-year-old Tomoki’s sparring partners.

    [​IMG]

    In a surprising announcement Shiro Kameda had posted a challenge to any Japanese fighter ranked in the world ratings who dare to beat his youngest son Tomoki during a sparring session.
    Kohei Kono, then, accepted the challenge and will go for the 8,000 US dollars reward offered by the trainer.
    Tomoki Kameda is currently an amateur and trains along with his two older brothers, former WBA Light Flyweight champion Koki, and Daiki.
    “I’d like to spar with world champs like Katsushige Kawashima or Nobuo Nashiro, for instance. I’m calling them out for a sparring session,” Tomoki Kameda said.
    However, before this unusual challenge takes places, Kono has to overcome his next obstacle in a professional bout as next June 2 he will defend the Japanese Super Flyweight title against Kenji Saegusa.

    NEW YORK - Status Mike Tyson sebagai tahanan kota tak membuat mantan juara dunia kelas berat itu merasa terbatasi. Buktinya, Tyson malah ingin mendampingi Sultan Ibragimov, penantang pertama Shanon Briggs dalam kejuaraan dunia kelas berat versi WBO di Atlantic City, New Jersey, Amerika Serikat (AS) pada Minggu (3/6) WIB.

    Tapi, izin Tyson kepada New Jersey Athletic Control Board (NJACB) untuk berdiri di samping ring kubu Ibragimov tertahan lantaran formulir permohonan tidak terisi secara lengkap. Dalam aplikasinya, si Leher Beton -julukan Mike Tyson-tidak mengisi pertanyaan menjadi asisten siapa dan apakah dia mengetahui kondisi medisnya dapat memengaruhi petinju.

    Izin dari NJACB diperlukan Tyson sebagai syarat mengurus permohonan meninggalkan Arizona dan California kepada hakim. Itu menyusul tertundanya proses peradilan kasus kepemilikan dan mengendari di bawah pengaruh narkoba. Akibatnya, NJACB mengembalikan aplikasi Tyson dengan dalih isian formulir tak lengkap.

    "Kami belum bisa mengambil tindakan karena aplikasinya tidak lengkap. Formulirnya telah kami kembalikan. Kalau sudah lengkap, kami akan pertimbangkan lisensinya," ujar pengacara NJACB Nicholas Lembo seperti dikutip Associated Press, kemarin.

    Sementara itu, Mario Costa, pelatih Ibragimov mengetahui keinginan Tyson mendampingi Ibragimov sekaligus untuk mengunjungi anak perempuannya yang sekolah di Washington. "Ibragimov lebih percaya diri jika Tyson melihat langsung," ujar Costa. Sebelumnya, Tyson menjadi penasehat tak resmi Ibragimov saat petinju Rusia itu menang KO atas Lance Whitaker pada Desember 2005.

    Shannon Briggs v Sultan Ibragimov
    NEW YORK - Tubuh boleh gemuk. Tapi, Shannon Briggs yakin hal itu tak akan jadi kendala saat dia harus mempertahankan gelar kelas berat versi WBO melawan Sultan Ibragimov di Atlantic City, New Jersey, besok pagi WIB.

    Saat sesi timbang badan kemarin, berat badan Briggs memang mencapai 136, 5 kg atau paling gemuk sepanjang karir petinju Amerika Serikat (AS) itu naik ring. Bandingkan dengan Ibragimov yang bakal tampil dengan berat ideal 110,5 kg.

    Namun, Briggs percaya, dengan persiapan matang yang telah dilakukannya selama ini, dia akan menjadi petinju pertama yang mampu menodai rekor tak terkalahkan Ibragimov. "Aku tahu bagaimana membuat dia tersungkur. Semua orang tahu aku adalah petinju dengan pukulan mematikan. Ketika aku memukulnya, dia akan memohon untuk tidak melihat sarung tinjuku lagi," kata Briggs sebagaimana dilansir fightnews.

    Briggs yang memiliki rekor tanding 48-4-1 ingin membuktikan bahwa dia adalah petinju yang mempunyai skill dan tidak asal sergap tanpa perhitungan matang. Yang lebih penting, Briggs siap tampil lincah di atas ring meski tubuhnya makin melebar.

    "Aku telah belajar untuk bisa mengontrol pertandingan di atas ring. Saat bel berbunyi, aku akan seperti hewan yang berlarian memburu mangsanya," ujar petinju yang juga menderita penyakit asma itu.

    Sesumbar Briggs itu ditanggapi Ibragimov dengan dingin. Petinju asal Rusia yang belum terkalahkan selama 20 kali naik ring itu hanya menegaskan ambisinya untuk melanggengkan dominasi negara-negara pecahan Uni Sovyet sebagai penguasa gelar di kelas berat.

    Saat ini, dari empat versi sabuk juara dunia kelas berat, hanya gelar WBO yang dikuasai petinju non-negara pecahan Uni Sovyet. Tiga lainnya dikuasai Wladimir Klitschko (Ukraina/IBF), Ruslan Chagaev (Uzbekistan/WBA), hingga petinju Kazakhstan Oleg Maskaev yang memegang sabuk WBC.

    "Aku siap menghadapi pertarungan dan rasanya kita tidak perlu basa-basi lebih banyak hingga akhir ronde 12," kata Ibragimov. "Pertandingan kali ini tak hanya berarti bagiku, tapi juga negaraku."

    Chris John
    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica][SIZE=+2]Pertarungannya Dipastikan Minggu Ini[/SIZE]

    [SIZE=-1]Rencana pertarungan Chris John masih belum menemukan kejelasan, meskipun juara kelas bulu WBA ini sudah mulai berlatih di Perth, Australia. Pelatih Chris, Craig Christian, masih merahasiakan jadwal pertarungannya, yang dijadwalkan Agustus.

    [FONT=Arial,Helvetica][SIZE=-1]

    “Saya punya komitmen dengan promotor untuk tidak buru-buru mengumumkan rencana pertarungan Chris. Minggu ini saya pasti akan umumkan kepastian pertarungan Chris. Yang jelas dia tidak bertarung di Indonesia,” ujar Craig.

    Craig sempat meniupkan kabar bahwa pertarungan berikut Chris akan digelar di Cina. Bersama penata tanding asal AS, Sampson Lewkowicz, dia sedang mematangkan rencana itu.

    Craig hanya membuka sedikit petunjuk bahwa calon lawan Chris nanti tak akan dipilih dari luar peringkat 10 besar WBA. Pertarungan Chris nanti memang merupakan pertarungan choice setelah 3 Maret lalu dia sukses mengalahkan Jose Rojas dari Venezuela dalam pertarungan wajib.

    Chris sendiri memilih bungkam soal rencana pertarungannya.

    “Saya tidak berhak menjelaskan rencana pertarungan nanti. Biar Craig saja yang bicara. Pada prinsipnya, saya tak akan menolak siapa pun lawan dan di mana pun akan main. Bertanding di ujung dunia pun bukan masalah untuk saya,” ujar Chris, yang sudah berada di Perth sejak Minggu (27/5).

    Menarik untuk ditunggu siapa lawan Chris berikutnya dan di mana dia akan berlaga. (don)

    ATLANTIC CITY - Ada banyak yang dipertaruhkan dalam duel kelas berat versi WBO antara Shannon Briggs dan Sultan Ibragimov di Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, Amerika Serikat (AS), pagi ini WIB. Mulai sabuk juara yang kini melilit di pinggang Briggs, rekor tak terkalahkan Ibragimov, hingga gengsi dua negara.

    Ya, duel yang akan ditayangkan langsung RCTI mulai pukul 09.00 WIB itu tak ubahnya replika Perang Dingin antara AS dan Rusia dulu. AS mewakili Barat, dan Rusia representasi Timur, dua blok besar yang saling unjuk kekuatan dan berebut pengaruh.

    Briggs adalah harapan bagi AS, bagi blok Barat. Petinju berjuluk The Cannon dengan rekor tanding 48 menang (42 KO), 4 kalah, dan sekali seri itu menjadi satu-satunya jawara kelas berat saat ini yang berasal dari AS. Petinju berusia 35 tahun tersebut bahkan juga menjadi satu-satunya kampiun di kelas bergengsi itu yang berasal dari luar pecahan Uni Soviet.

    Namun, Briggs mencoba berkelit dari beban besar yang ada di pundaknya dengan menyebut duel menghadapi lawannya dari Rusia ini tak lebih dari pertarungan antarindividu. "Ini bukan pertarungan antarnegara. Tapi, itu tetap tak akan mengubah tekad saya untuk menang. Saya tak terima ditertawakan sebagai pengecut akibat jadwal yang mundur. Lihat saja, anak kemarin sore itu (Ibragimov) akan kuhancurkan," sumbar Briggs seperti dilansir fightnews.

    Partai ini memang awalnya diagendakan berlangsung 10 Maret lalu di Moskow, Rusia. Namun, jadwal diundur menjadi pada hari ini di Atlantic City, AS, lantaran petinju yang merebut gelar dari Serghei Lyakhovich (Belarusia) melalui technicak knock out (TKO) ronde ke-12 pada November tahun lalu tersebut terserang radang paru-paru. Akibat penundaan itu, beredar rumor kalau kubu Briggs keder.

    Tapi, layakkah Ibragimov disebut anak kemarin sore? Dari jam terbang, Ibragimov memang masih jauh di bawah Briggs. Maklum, dia tergolong terlambat masuk jagat tinju profesional. Tapi, ingat, dari 21 kali naik ring, petinju berusia 32 tahun itu belum sekali pun terkalahkan. Ibragimov mencatat 20 kemenangan, 17 di antaranya dengan KO.

    Rekor tak terkalahkan itu pula yang menjadi fondasi kepercayaan diri Ibragimov. Apalagi, beda dengan Briggs, peraih medali perak di Olimpiade 2000 di Sydney tersebut jelas-jelas menyebut laga pagi ini sebagai pertaruhan nama besar dua bangsa yang dulu sangat bermusuhan. Tentu ini bisa menjadi tambahan motivasi di atas ring. "Ini pertandingan penting buat masyarakat di negaraku," tegas Ibragimov.

    Ibragimov memang tak sabar ingin menegaskan dominasi pecahan Uni Soviet di kelas berat. Sebelumnya, Oleg Maskaev (Rusia), Ruslan Chagaev (Uzbekistan), dan Wladimir Klitschko (Ukraina) telah lebih dulu menjadi yang terbaik di kelas berat WBC, WBA, dan IBF.

    ATLANTIC CITY - Keperkasaan Amerika Serikat (AS) di kelas berat lenyap. Ini setelah satu-satunya juara yang dimiliki, Shannon Briggs, di WBO harus mengakui ketangguhan penantang pertamanya asal Rusia, Sultan Ibragimov, dengan angka telak di Boardwalk Hall, Atlantic City, kemarin.

    Tiga hakim yang bertugas, yakni Lynn Carter, Luis Rivera, dan Donald Trella memberikan nilai masing-masing 119-109, 115-113, dan 117-111 untuk kemenangan Ibragimov. Keunggulan petinju pecahan Uni Soviet itu terlihat dari dominasi pukulan kilat kepalan tangan kirinya sepanjang 12 ronde.

    "Malam ini (kemarin), saya akan tidur sebagai juara. Ketika bangun pun masih sebagai juara," ujar Ibragimov kepada Associted Press.

    Petinju berumur 32 tahun itu mengaku sangat berhati-hati meladeni Briggs yang punya tinggi badan 193 cm. Lebih pendek 5 cm, Ibragimov memanfaatkan ronde pertama dan kedua sebagai penjajagan.

    "Shannon petinju yang sangat tangguh. Saya mesti lebih berhati-hati untuk menghargai kekuatan Briggs," lanjutnya.

    Penampilan impresif Ibragimov mulai terlihat pada ronde ketiga ketika beberapa hook kiri dan straight mendarat di wajah lawan. Ronde kesembilan makin seru setelah pukulan beruntun Ibragimov membuat lawan tersudut.

    Bagian bawah mata Briggs pun bengkak. Petinju yang lebih tua tiga tahun dari Ibragimov itu pun tak bisa dioptimalkan Ibragimov. Pemegang perak Olimpiade Sydney 2000 itu masih memegang kendali hingga duel 12 ronde berakhir. Petinju yang menyempurnakan dominasi juara kelas berat dari negeri pecahan Uni Soviet itu semakin mengukuhkan rekor tak terkalahkan dengan 21 menang (17 KO) dan 1 seri.

    Sebaliknya, Briggs yang punya rekor 48 menang (42 KO), 5 kalah, dan 1 draw berdalih kekalahan itu dideritanya karena masih sakit. "Saya sebenarnya tak ingin bertanding. Tapi, jika saya menarik diri, WBO mengancam akan menuntut dan mencoret gelar saya," elak Briggs.

    Dia boleh berkilah. Tapi, petinju yang belum berencana pensiun itu terlihat tak berusaha meningkatkan serangan. "Saya tak bisa berlatih selama dua minggu terakhir. Itu mungkin akibat mengonsumsi berbagai jenis antibiotik," imbuh petinju yang mengaku sudah pulih dari radang paru-paru pada Februari lalu.

    Akibat penyakit itu, bentrok yang dijadwalkan berlangsung 10 Maret di Moskow, Rusia, akhirnya ditunda sampai kemarin.

    [​IMG]

    [/FONT][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][FONT=Verdana, Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif]Sultan Ibragimov, of Rostov-na-Donu, Russia, handily defeated defending champion Shannon Briggs, of Brooklyn, New York to take the WBO heavyweight crown in front of 5,132 fans last night at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Ibragimov was outweighed by 52 pounds - 273 to 221 - but took advantage of a massive, yet lethargic Briggs, out-boxing him over the twelve round distance by the scores of 119-109, 117-111, and a much too close 115-113. The nine-bout card was presented by Seminole Warriors Boxing, Golden Boy Promotions, and Main Events, in conjunction with Caesars Atlantic City.

    Sultan Ibragimov, the 2000 Olympic silver medalist, entered the ring first to the cheers of his large pro-Russian contingent. The defending champ Briggs entered next, to the mellow strains of Marvin Gaye's "Let's Get It On", sporting a large entourage that included American flag-waving promoter Don King.

    Briggs, who dwarfed Ibragimov in the ring, opened the fight with a wild sweeping right that missed by a foot. It wasn't long before the heavily bearded Briggs claimed control of the center of the ring, while Sultan, a southpaw, constantly circled to his left, ever wary of Shannon's powerful left hook. It was a pattern that would last the entire fight.

    Round two was more of the same, with Ibragimov cautiously circling, and probing Briggs' body with left hand leads. Briggs countered with a nice left hook and right hands to the head and body. Briggs narrowly won the first two rounds, but it would be a long time before he would win another. Ibragimov was able to find a distance that would keep him out of range of Briggs' bombs, yet keep him close enough to deliver his straight left hand, which he would soon use with impunity.

    Round three was another slow round which drew some boo-birds. Briggs fired some sharp, pinpoint jabs that reddened the face of the Russian. It looked like Shannon had found the key, but as it turned out, he wasn't able to use the jab nearly enough to keep his darting opponent at bay. After a clash of heads, Ibragimov landed the first of many lead left hands that would send a spray of sweat from Shannon's golden dreadlocks.

    Briggs used his jab to set up a big left hook to Ibragimov's head to open round four, but Sultan showed a granite chin and was unmoved. Passing that test, Ibragimov began to take over with his left hand, which started to land every time he threw it. The fight was even at this point.

    Ibragimov took over the fight in round five. He surprised Briggs with two big overhand lefts that landed flush to begin the round. He continued to fire away with his left hand, landing it both to the head and chest of Briggs, while Shannon's punch output slipped to the single digits.

    Briggs sought to re-establish his jab in round six, as Ibragimov continued to circle. After Briggs landed a hard right that Sultan shook off, Ibragimov bounced a series of four straight lefts off the head of Briggs. He closed the round with another big left hand to the head, and one to the chest of the defending champion.

    In round seven, Briggs' punch output dipped even further, and Ibragimov won the round with a left-right combination that knocked Briggs back, and two straight lefts that drew blood from the mouth of Briggs.

    Briggs landed a huge right hand in round eight, but once again Ibragimov didn't budge. He continued to pump his left hand, and punctuated the round with a solid left to the head of Briggs at the bell.

    Round nine was a huge one for Ibragimov. He landed three straight left hand leads, and then countered a Briggs jab with two more lefts. A straight left-right combination from Ibragimov rocked Briggs back into the ropes. Shannon fired back, but was unable to connect on his swarming foe. Sultan then went back to his bread and butter, circling left and peppering away with his left hand.

    Briggs and Ibragimov tangled went to the floor early in round ten, and Briggs got the worst of it, as he landed hard on his back Ibragimov then went back to circling and using his left, while a desperate and still-dangerous Briggs countered him with a right hand and a left hook.

    Briggs managed to out-punch Ibragimov in round eleven, but not by much. He was expected press the action more like he did in the late rounds against his title winning effort against Sergei Lyakhovich, but that wasn't the case.

    Briggs remained passive in the twelfth and final round, and as a result, watched his title slip away.

    In winning the WBO heavyweight title, Ibragimov ups his record to 21-0-1, with 17 KOs, while Briggs saw his fall to 48-5-1, with 42 KOs.
