WARD LAWSUIT AGAINST GOOSSEN ALLOWED TO CONTINUE
By Scott Shaffer

World super middleweight champion Andre Ward will be allowed to continue his lawsuit against his recently deceased promoter Dan Goossen and Goossen's company, Goossen Tutor Promotions, LLC. Ward is seeking damages resulting from Goossen’s alleged violation of the Muhammad Ali Boxing Reform Act, which requires promoters to make certain financial disclosures to their boxers. The lawsuit, filed in federal court in the Northern District of California, also seeks an accounting of Goossen's profits from several boxing matches. The defendants asked the federal court to compel the arbitration of Ward’s claims, but this week, the court ruled in Ward's favor, meaning the dispute will continue to be litigated in federal court as opposed to private arbitration.

 AMATEUR BOXER ATTACKS REFEREE
By Scott Shaffer

An amateur boxer from Croatia named Vido Loncar, reacted to a premature stoppage by pummeling the referee. The referee stopped the fight without incident, and Loncar returned to his corner and had his headgear and one glove removed. But as Loncar approached the referee for the reading of the verdict, the referee said something to Loncar and Loncar beat him viciously even when the referee fell to the ground. Loncar deserves a lifetime suspension for this despicable act.

 ABRAHAM DOES NOT HAVE TO GIVE SMITH AN IMMEDIATE REMATCH

The WBO has denied the request of Paul Smith for an immediate rematch against Arthur Abraham. Last month, Smith went to Germany to challenge Abraham for the WBO 168-pound title. The general consensus was that it was a close fight, but Abraham won a lopsided unanimous decision by scores of 117-110 (twice) and 119-109. Smith appealed to the WBO, but Luis Batista-Salas of the championship committee ruled that five committe members recored the fight and though that Abraham should have won by a score of 115-113 or 116-112. Although the 119-109 score from Fernando Laguna was "egregious and unacceptable," Smith's request for an immediate rematch was denied because the problem, in the eyes of the WBO, was the margin of Abrhaam's victory, not the actual outcome of the bout.

GOLOVKIN MAKES QUICK WORK OF RUBIO

Gennady Golovkin KO2 Marco A. Rubio... In Carson, California, Gennady "GGG" Golovkin retained the WBA and IBO middleweight titles with a second-round knockout of Mexico's Marco Antonio Rubio. Golovkin landed a punishing right uppercut followed by a perfectly placed left hook that landed on Rubio's forehead, just above his gloves. Rubio went down on his back and just missed beating the ten count, which seemed a bit quick. It was another highlight reel knockout for Golovkin who is now 31-0 with 28 KOs. While Miguel Cotto holds the true world middleweight  championship, it would be difficult to find a boxing expert who would pick Cotto to beat Golovkin. Rubio falls to 59-7-1. Because he failed to make the middlewieght limit, he could not have won either of Golovkin's titles. source: hbo

CUNNINGHAM KNOCKED DOWN BUT WINS EASY

The Boxingtalk Scoreboard: Results from South Philly

Steve Cunningham TKO8 Natu Visinia... Fighting in his hometown of Philadelphia, Steve Cunningham handed Natu Visinia his first pro loss when Visinia failed to answer the bell for the ninth round of their heavyweight bout. Cunningham, the former world cruiserweight champion was outweighed by 73 pound but controlled the action with superior speed and footwork.  Visinia's raw strength advantage showed itself when Cunningham was knocked down by a punch to the shoulder. Cunningham was not hurt and generally took the action to Visinia for most of the bout. Visinia (10-1) suffered some cuts inside his mouth that made his job tougher. Cunningham is now 28-6 with three wins in a row.

Edner Cherry TKO2 Osumanu Akaba... In South Philadelphia, wild-swinging Edner Cherry knocked Osumanu Akaba down three times in the second round to win thier lightweight bout via technical knockout. After a tentative first round, Cherry's left hand was too quick and too hard for Akaba, a late replacement. Cherry is now 33-6 for his career, including 9-0 with one no contest since losing to Timothy Bradley six years ago. Akaba is now 31-7-1. 

Decarlo Perez TKO5 Tyrone Brunson... Big punching Tyrone Brunson emptied out his gas tank in the second round and had Decarlo Perez on the ropes, but Perez weathered the storm and Brunson tired very quickly, leading to a fifth-round stoppage win for Perez. Brunson never went down, but he was doubled over in exhaustion while Perez rained in unanswered punches forcing the referee to stop the middleweight bout. Perez, from nearby Atlantic City, New Jersey improves to 13-3-1 with this career-best win. After a strong start to his career, Brunson has now lost three of four and is 22-3-1 overall. If Brunson is to have any success, he must figure out what to do when he can't knock his opponent out early. source: nbc sports network
