 HEAVYWEIGHT CHARLES MARTIN CALLS OUT BRYANT JENNINGS

Press Release: Heavyweight Charles Martin has called out Bryant Jennings. A fight between Martin (18-0 with 16 KOs) and Jennings (19-0 with 10 KOs) has reportedly been accepted by HBO, but Jennings and/or his promotional team is so far balking at accepting the fight. Martin's brief video can be seen at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5U343AsDCJs. In the 1990s, HBO was at the height of its glory days when it aired "Night of Young Heavyweights" featuring David Tua, Ike Ibeabuchi, Andrew Golata, Hasim Rahman, Derric Jefferson, Kirk Johnson and Oleg Maskaev all mixing it up ion the same show.  Martin would like to recreate such a moment but believes that Jennings does not want to risk the WBC title shot he may get in 2015, and will instead seek out a safe opponent.

JERMAIN TAYLOR GRANTED BAIL; SOLIMAN-TAYLOR APPEARS ON
By Scott Shaffer

Ex-champ accused of shooting his cousin

Former world middleweight champion, who recently signed for an October title shot, has been arrested in Pulaski County, Arkansas for allegfedly shooting his cousin. According to Araknsas' KTHV (TV11), an altercation took place at Taylor's home, with Taylor allegedly shooting his cousin several times.The cousin is listed in serious condition. UPDATE: Arkansas Online reports that a judge has set a very low bail amount, $25,000, and approved Taylor to leave Arkansas and train in Florida for his October IBF title challenge against Sam Soliman. Indications are that Taylor will plead self-defense. Taylor won the undisputed world middleweight championship from Bernard Hopkins in 2005, and defeated the future hall of famer in a rematch. He lost the championship to Kelly Pavlik in 2007, and his career began to slide with brutal knockout losses to Carl Froch and Arthur Abraham in 2009. Taylor reportedly suffered a brain bleed after the Abraham loss, but returned to boxing in 2011 and ran off four wins against mid-level opponents. His manager, the powerful Al Haymon, recently secured an IBF championship opportunity against Sam Soliman, a 40 year-old, light punching but extremely crafty Australian.

 YOUTH OLYMPICS EXPERIMENTS WITH 10-POINT MUST SCORING
By Scott Shaffer

The 2014 Youth Olympic Games are under way in Nanjing, China, and the International Boxing Association (AIBA) has changed the scoring system for this amateur competition to more closely resemble pro-style scoring.  Under the new system, the winner of each round is awarded 10 points. Unlike the pros, there will be five ringside judges score the fight, but the scorecards of only three of them will be totalled to form the final score. The former computerized punch-count system has been discarded. That system was instituted to end corrupt judging (for example the corrupt judging of the 1988 Olympics that denied Roy Jones a gold medal). However, the punch-count system also produced many bad decisions in Olympic bouts. According to AIBA's website, the return to subjective scoring is success so far. “We think it is a better system, fairer, where they pick the three judges from the five,” said British coach Gary Hale. AIBA also hopes the new scoring system will improve fighter safety by shifting the focus to technical skills and ring dominance rather than punch volume. “It means the boxers have to engage and work more to get the points,” said Australia coach Marcus Wilson.

He captured a regional title in his home country in 2008, and made one successful defense before relocating to the USA, where he won his first four fights.

KLITSCHKO SUFFERS SPARRING INJURY; POSTPONES SEPTEMBER 6TH TITLE DEFENSE
By Scott Shaffer

World heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko suffered an injury in sparring earlier today and has postponed his September 6th title defense against Kubrat Pulev in Hamburg.  The Klitschko camp intends to reschedule the fight as soon as it has an accurate prognosis for Klitschko's recovery from the unidentified injury. Update: The Associated Press reports that the injury is a torn bicep that will require four weeks to heal. The availability of television and the venue will also factor into the rescheduling date, but the fight seems likely to remain in Hamburg and take place before the end of the year.
