Taconing is Promised a Title Shot By WBC's Sulaiman

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

World Boxing Council president Don Jose Sulaiman has promised that light flyweight Jonathan Taconing will get another title shot, but that he will have to wait.

Sulaiman told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard which pushed for a review of the Taconing-Kompayak Porpramook title fight and the sanctioning of a rematch told us - "I personally believe that Taconing deserves one other opportunity and I promise to give my very best for that to happen."

However, the WBC president emphasized "it is to soon to do anything about it."

That's because the Thai champion Kompayak Porpramook who won a hotly disputed 5th round technical decision in their title fight "is still in a monastery.

Besides that former champion Adrian Hernandez from whom Porpramook won the title has an option for a rematch in Mexico.

Sulaiman told us "Let us wait for that to happen" even as he suggested that no pressure be exerted on the champion.

He said after the rematch he would "proceed to do our best to support you and Taconing."

Sulaiman said the WBC rules and regulations do not allow immediate rematches and pointed out that Porpramook had given the Hernandez camp two options in order to get a title shot which Porpramook won by a 10th round TKO.

The WBC president stated that the DVD of the Taconing fight which was reviewed by Tom Kaczmarek who heads the WBC Ring Officials Review Committee reported the fight as a draw at the time it eded. However, he said "It also saw some unexplainable times of intervention by the referee" Jae Bong Kim of Korea who was subsequently suspended.

With regard to the cut suffered by Porpramook after an accidental clash of heads in the fourth round, Sulaiman said the WBC received a medical report that "the injury needed six stitches and it was a deep wound."

However, television videos showed it was a small cut and hardly bled.

That was some suspicious doctoring to say the least which was too bad the fight was getting good But Porpramook/Hernandez II it'll be tough to match their first encounter which was outstanding
