Frank Warren on Tete-Casimero, Daniel Dubois, Edwards, More

OUR FIRST WIN of the day over in Las Vegas came when we won the purse bid to stage the WBO world bantamweight title clash between our man Zolani Teteand the Interim champion John Riel Casimero.

We are working on a venue for it at the moment and we want to get Zolani back and rolling again after the disappointment for him of having to withdraw from the World Boxing Super Series due to injury.

There are some really big fights out there for him, but he has obviously got to get through a really good fighter in Casimero first.

I WAS DELIGHTED to learn that Daniel Dubois has been acknowledged by the Boxing Writers’ Club as the Best Young Boxer of the Year.

He has done particularly well this year and winning the British title in a huge domestic showdown against Nathan Gorman is a particular highlight.

First things first though, Daniel needs to keep his mind on the job and clinch the Commonwealth title when he takes on the unbeaten Ghanaian Ebenezer Tetteh for the vacant belt at the Royal Albert Hall on Friday September 27.

I HAVEN’T WATCHED it right through yet, but I have received some glowing reports from our show at York Hall last Friday night.

I caught bits of it over in the States and did see Sunny Edwards doing his usual job and looking typically impressive in defeating Hugo Rosendo Guarneros. He is getting himself into a good position ahead of hopefully having a crack at a world title next year.

I didn’t see all of the final fight between Brad Foster and Lucien Reid, but from what I saw it looked very close. As ever with disputed decisions, the easiest way to settle matters is to make a rematch.

In the other main fight, I saw enough to see that Zak Chelli – although game as you like – I don’t think is a light heavyweight and needs to get back down to super middle. Kody Davies, meanwhile, has set himself up for bigger fights ahead.

Finally on York Hall, congratulations to both Shakan Pitters and Dec Spelman who delivered a belter of a fight for the English light heavyweight title.

Instead of poncing about with meaningless WBO baubles, why doesn't Frank push the BBBofC to get Sunny his well deserved British title fight. It's apparent that Selby's never going to defend it, so how about Sunny Vs Charlie Hoy, Kyle…
