GVOZDYK: STEVENSON MUST FIGHT ME NEXT!
By G. Leon

As the WBC's mandated opponent to face Adonis Stevenson next, how do you feel about all of this rematch talk following his draw to Badou Jack? I really expected this situation to be honest. I didn't really think I was going to fight Adonis Stevenson in August. It's impossible, a guy who is fighting once a year now is suddenly going to fight me in three months? The fight is supposed to be done by August 19th, 90 days after their fight. I knew this was going to be impossible, I wasn't really depressed when the decision was a draw because it was a fair decision. I didn't really see who won this fight. It was really a boring a dirty fight, so a draw is a fair decision. It wasn't really good for me though, I know they had a rematch before the fight and they're going to look to do this, but the WBC has told us that we will be next, so we should be next.

REGIS PROGRAIS READY TO RULE THE JUNIOR WELTERWEIGHT DIVISION
By G. Leon

How's everything going in the early stages of training camp for your upcoming fight with Juan Jose Velasco? I'm always in the gym no matter what, but I haven't officially started camp but I probably will in the last week of this month. I'm just kind of cooling right now and I'm always in shape, but I'm not officially in camp right now. Is a six week camp normal for you? Yes because I've been training the whole time and I never really stopped training after the Indongo fight. Right now I'm going to back off the sparring for this week and then start a really fresh camp next Monday.

EGIS KLIMAS TALKS UP LOMACHENKO-BELTRAN, KOVAELV-ALVAREZ AND STEVENSON-GVOZDYK
By G. Leon

What did you think of the Stevenson-Jack fight? How confident are you that the WBC will enforce their mandate and Gvozdyk will be next by August 19th? I started to watch the fight and then I had to change the channel to watch the Royal Wedding because it was more interesting. So you must have tuned out early. Yes Gvozdyk is going to be next, this is my expectation because I have this in writing and signed off on by the WBC. I don't think the WBC is going to work against themselves here.

Had he started a tad bit earlier he would have stopped Stevenson. What a fight tho, Badou fought his ass off,especially after getting hurt in the 10th”

HEKKIE BUDLER WINS IBF & WBA TITLES IN JAPAN
By Scott Shaffer

Hekkie Budler W12 Ryoichi Taguchi... South Africa's Hekkie Budler got a huge road win, defeating Ryoichi Taguchi in Japan to claim the WBA and IBF 108-pound championships. It was one of the biggest wins in the history of South African boxing. Taguchi knocked Budler down in round twelve, but it wasn't enough to overcome Budler's strong start.  All three judges scored it 114-113 for Budler, a former WBA 105-pound titleholder spoiled Taguchi's dream of being the first Japanese boxer to successfully defend unified championship belts. Budler was coming off a controversial loss to Milan Melindo. But Taguchi beat Milando in December to add the IBF title to the WBA version Taguchi had taken from Alberto Rossel in 2014. Budler is now 32-3, while Taguchi is now 27-3-2. source: fox sports asia

STEVENSON-JACK ENDS IN DRAW
By G. Leon

Adonis Stevenson D12 Badou Jack: To say this fight got off to a slow start would be an understatement. The first six rounds of this fight defined uneventful, but Stevenson (pictured) was ahead 4-2 as Jack looked to bide his time. Stevenson looked exhausted after the sixth and Jack noticed and took advantage of the tired champion in rounds seven through nine. Jack was also in control of the tenth round and just when it looked like he was cruising to a unanimous decision victory Stevenson landed a powerful straight left hand to the body that bent Jack over. Jack's world class conditioning and championship desire were the only things keep him up because he was clearly hurt and a rejuvenated kept his attack downstairs. Stevenson took the eleventh, but was nearly out on his feet by the time the final bell sounded. The verdict was a draw, meaning Stevenson retained the lineal and WBC light heavyweight championships.  Official scores were 115-113 for Jack and 114-114 (twice). Boxingtalk scored it 114-114. Punchstats favored Jack in terms of punches landed, 209-165. Source: Showtime

GARY RUSSELL JR OUTPUNCHES JOSEPH DIAZ IN SOLID SCRAP
By G. Leon

Gary Russell Jr W12 Joseph Diaz: Fighting once a year clearly isn't a problem for WBC featherweight champion Gary Russell Jr. who easily dismantled previously undefeated mandatory challenger Joseph Diaz over twelve competitive rounds. Russell (29-1 with 17 KOs), easily took the opening frame, but Diaz had some solid moments early in the fight. He was able to land powerful body shots and for a moment it looked like Russell could be in trouble. Russell showed the heart of a champion, choosing to exchange in moments where he could have used his feet, and by the midway point of the fight he was in total control. There was quite a bit of shoe-shining from Russell, but his punches had enough behind him to discourage Diaz from letting his hands go, which he did very little of in the second half of the bout. Knowing that he was behind on the cards Diaz (26-1 with 14KOs) went for it in the final round and once again Russell chose to exchange during moments where he could have been looking to kill time.  Official scores rightly favored Russell, 115-113 and 117-111 (twice).

STEVENSON-JACK REMATCH CLAUSE CONTRADICTS WBC RULING
By G. Leon

TVA Sports has reported that Badou Jack had to sign off on a rematch clause in order to get his crack at WBC light heavyweight Adonis Stevenson. This announcement might come as a surprise to the WBC and its board of directors who mandated that the winner of Stevenson-Jack face undefeated interm titlist Oleksandr Gvozdyk next. November 2013 was the last time a WBC mandatory was made in the light heavyweight division. It should be interesting to see how this story develops regardless of who the winner is, however a Jack upset would make for an especially precarious situation moving forward.

ADONIS STEVENSON CAN REBUILD HIS IMAGE WITH A WIN AND THE DESIRE TO MAKE BIG FIGHTS
By G. Leon

Just say yes: Win this fight, make Gvozdyk mandatory, then look to unify!

Adonis Stevenson took the light heavyweight division by storm with a first round knockout over Chad Dawson. He followed up with another stoppage of former champion Tavoris Cloud to earn 2013 fighter of the year honors. In 2014 the plan was for Stevenson to make his mandatory defense vs. Tony Bellew before facing Sergey Kovalev in a WBO/WBC unification bout. Adonis was impressive in dispatching Bellew, and that win has gotten better over time like a bottle of fine wine on Stevenson's resume. Then it happened, Stevenson signed with Al Haymon, left HBO and the rest is history. The Kovalev fight went away, as did fights with Bernard Hopkins and Jean Pascal. Stevenson turned those fights down and chose to fight fringe contender Dmitriy Sukhotsky, after the WBC granted him an exception of his mandatory defense vs.former champion Jean Pascal. Kovalev fought Hopkins, and then Pascal twice. Pascal and Eleider Alvarez both beat Lucian Bute and fought each other. Now Alvarez is getting ready to face Kovalev on August 4th due to the never ending story Stevenson's mandatory has become.
