World Boxing Organization To Enter The Japanese Market

By Miguel Rivera

Accoding to overseas reports, World Boxing Organization (WBO) President Francisco 'Paco' Valcarcel will be part of a big media event in Japan, where he will announce the WBO's entry into the Japanese market. At the moment, the World Boxing Council and the World Boxing Association are the only sanctioning organizations recognized by the Japanese Boxing Commission. Valcárcel will be accompanied by the WBO's chairman of championship fights, Luis Perez, and promoter Felix 'Tutico' Zabala.

The presentation will take place at the Tokyo Dome, and the event will be organized by Japanese promoter Akihiko Honda, president of Teiken Promotions Inc., a company with close ties to Top Rank and Zanfer Promotions.

So why won't Ioka fight him then? You explain it to me. Biased poster can see past his bias.

Bummer. I always liked that Japan kept it simple when it came to world champions. They only recognized the two oldest sanctioning bodies. As for Ioka: he dumped his last fight because he knows Roman Gonazalez would eat him alive.

IT's just one more sanctioning body. I'm expected Ioka to fight for the title then which explains why he dumped his last fight.
