 UPDATE: WBF CHANGES MATHIS DQ TO NO CONTEST

Anne Sophie Mathis NC Christine Hammer...  In a very significant women's bout, Christina Hammer was announced as the winner of a junior middleweight bout against Anne Sophie Mathis (27-4) on Saturday night. The initial verdict in Dessau, Germany was a fifth round disqualification in Dessau, Germany. The fight was fairly even until the end came in round five, when during a clinch, Mathis landed a series of punches that referee Manfred Keuchler saw as being behind the head of Hammer. Hammer (18-0) went down, and when she was unable to continue after getting to her feet, Keuchler ruled the bout a disqualification victory for the German Hammer. Update: While the local boxing commission has the auhtority to determine the official result, on Monday the organization that sanctioned the bout for its title, the WBF, declared the bout a no contest. The official result, at least for now remains a DQ win for Hammer because the local commission has not changed the result, but the WBF title reverts back to Mathis. A rematch has been recommended.

 DAILY BREAD MONDAY EDITION: (7-28-14)
By Stephen "Breadman" Edwards

GGG & Jennings Victory Recaps & More.....

On Saturday, Bryant. Jennings, who I was excited about, was at most moments, boring and unimpressive, Yes I know HBO reminded us many times how raw and inexperienced he is
at this point in his career.  While he squeaked by with a win over Mike Perez, I find it hard to think he has enough time to make up for his lack of amateur pedigree , plus he lacks real power (only 10 knock outs). I know he is a Philly brotha and we all want to love him but the truth is the truth. I hope he can really pick up his punch rate and stop thinking so much. My gut is that isn't something you can fix. He just needs another 20 plus fights. I don't think he is going to give Wladimir Klitschko any problems.

Speaking of problems, my boy Gennady "GGG" Golovkin isn't a problem... he is a nightmare. Please correct me if I'm wrong but I believe he flat out murders Miguel Cotto. I hope that fight isn't made because Miguel took a bad enough beating in his life a few years ago. I would much rather see him fight Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., Andre Ward or Carl Froch even though Carl looks like he wants to avoid him like an IRS audit. -- Fenster
