Message from Young Victor: For the past year having been vice president ANBHOF, I resigned as I found it more comfortable being a committee member where I am doing what I do best.


Today's Australian Boxing fraternity will be sorry and possibly feel ashamed if the ANBHOF disappears and ends during our generation.

The ANBHOF has been running for a decade at first with great success and now in need of sponsors and members.

The ANBHOF has rewarded by organizing the yearly Induction Dinner, selection of inductees, ensuring, paid for, travel and accommodation for iconic boxing legends and partners to meet our attending guests. Usually from other countries such as Briton, US and more.

We also have organized grave monuments for our past legends listed above, fund raisers for needed issues etc. ....(more to be added)

Some memories of past fuctions with more to yet be added

Young Victor is a committee member now the vice president and will be assisting in encouraging as much as possible to maintain interest in this great and very important boxing organization.

It is so very important for anybody that has any kind of connection with boxing such as being a family member of any past and present boxer to make sure they are never forgotten. (remember even past times fighters keep getting inducted) I am recommending Johnny Butterworth to be inducted hopefully, he participated in some 9 fights and lived in Australia for about a year reaching an Australian Title fight against our Best George Bracken.

I recommend you to help support our great Australian National Boxing Hall of Fame by sponsoring, or becoming a member or joining the great Aussie Fighters that fought so hard to become champions by buying entry tickets to our Annual Gala Induction Dinner that occurs once per year.

Dunn defeats Bursak
By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing
Photos: Werner Kalin

WBO#11, WBA#13 super middleweight Zac Dunn (18-0, 15 KOs) outpointed Max Bursak (31-4, 14 KOs) over twelve rounds to capture the vacant IBO world title 115-111, 115-111, 116-110, on Saturday at Royal Exhibition Building, Melbourne, Victoria Australia.
Dunn took the eight count in round three from a right hand but gained control of the fight as he outworked Bursak consistently with accurate head and body combinations. Bursak came to fight but the Australian had superior power and ring skills.
Promoter Barry Michael is confident Dunn would also have the skills to defeat the WBO champion Arthur Abraham and is hopeful that a Dunn vs Abraham title bout will be negotiated soon.
In other action, super middleweight Renold Quinlan (8-1, 4 KOs) stopped Ricardo Ramallo (18-8-1, 13 KOs) in round one to capture the IBO International title. The referee called it off at 2:48.
Also, American super middleweight Mike “Hollywood” Jiminez (18-1, 12 KOs) scored a third round stoppage of Argentinian, Francisco Ramon Benitez (11-2,4KO) to win the UBF All Americas title.
Jayde Mitchell(3-0, 1 KO) scored a clear eight round decision over Mitchell Clark (6-1,2KO) for the Victorian State super middleweight title.

Melbourne boxer Zac Dunn claims vacant IBO super-middleweight world title
MELBOURNE boxer Zac Dunn looks to have an exciting future after claiming the vacant IBO super-middleweight world title with a comfortable points victory over Ukrainian hard man Max Bursak.
Promoter Barry Michael was already at work on Sunday, only hours after Dunn took his career record to 18-0, to try to position the aggressive punching machine for a shot at the more recognised and lucrative WBO title, which goes on the line between German veterans Arthur Abraham and Robert Stieglitz next month.
Bursak had made it known he believed he had been more or less guaranteed that opportunity if he beat Dunn at the Exhibition Building on Saturday night, but he lost by a margin of four points on all three judges’ cards.... http://www.heraldsun.com.au/sport/boxing-mma/melbourne-boxer-zac-dunn-claims-vacant-ibo-super-middleweight-world-title/story-fni2urrv-1227419124182

Rising Australian middleweight slugger, Zac Dunn, to use opponent as stepping stone
ZAC Dunn never spends any more time in the ring than necessary.
The highly-promising Melbourne boxer has won all his 17 fights, 15 by knockout, with the average length of the contests less than four rounds.
But he is likely to have to work up a bigger sweat when he faces by far the toughest opponent of his career, Ukrainian Max Bursak, for the IBO super-middleweight world title at the Exhibition Building in Carlton on Saturday night.... http://www.news.com.au/sport/boxing/rising-australian-middleweight-slugger-zac-dunn-to-use-opponent-as-stepping-stone/story-fndkzthy-1227413627582

Danny Green announces boxing comeback
DANNY Green will fight Slovakian Tamas Kovacs in Melbourne in August but the four-time world champion says a rematch with Anthony Mundine remains his “end game”.
The 42-year-old announced the fight, his first since 2012, at Crown Casino in Melbourne on Wednesday, with the bout to take place at Hisense Arena on August 19.
Green said that he would have his hands full with the light heavyweight, who has a professional record of 26 wins and one loss, but has maintained his fighting weight since his last bout and still has a burning passion for the sport.
A rematch of his 2006 fight with Mundine, which he lost in a points decision, remains high on Green’s agenda....

Alex Leapai v Manuel Charr: Aussie heavyweight outpointed over 10 rounds in Moscow bout
ALEX Leapai unloaded plenty of heavy punches in Moscow on Saturday but they weren’t enough to stop German giant Manuel Charr outpointing him over 10 rounds in a sometimes wild slugfest.
Leapai looked dangerous in the first half of the fight and competed on even terms but began to fade after the sixth round when jetlag and a lack of match fitness began to tell.
He had only arrived in Moscow on Wednesday afternoon after a long flight from Brisbane but still managed to push the 192cm strongman hard in the early going.....http://www.foxsports.com.au/more-sports/boxing/alex-leapai-v-manuel-charr-aussie-heavyweight-outpointed-over-10-rounds-in-moscow-bout/story-e6frf5h3-1227366108438

Fight of century becomes fight in court
Boxing fans across the country and their lawyers are calling the hyped-up fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Junior a fraud and want their money back.

co-main event, promising WBO #10 lightweight Josh King of Australia will make his US television debut in a regional title fight against Batesville, Arkansas’ Rogelio Casarez (9-3, 4 KOs).
29-year-old Josh King is from Townsville, Queensland, Australia. As a professional, he has already held the Australian Super Lightweight and WBF World Super Lightweight titles and is the current WBO Oriental Lightweight and WBO Asia Pacific Lightweight Champion.

Leapai again eyes world boxing title
AAPMay 13, 2015, 8:58 am
Australian heavyweight boxer Alex Leapai is aiming for another world title shot after receiving career-saving eye surgery.
Revitalised after having eye cataracts removed, Leapai, 35, believes victory in May 22's bout with Lebanon's Manuel Charr in Moscow will put him back in world title contention following last year's loss to American Malik Scott.

Mayweather cements legacy with Pacquiao win
By Steve Keating
LAS VEGAS (Reuters) - Floyd Mayweather Jr cemented his place among the pantheon of boxing greats by improving to 48-0 with a unanimous decision over Manny Pacquiao on Saturday in a fight that lived up to its immense hype and price tag.https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/sport/a/27565388/mayweather-cements-legacy-with-pacquiao-win/

Floyd Mayweather vs Manny Pacquiao in Las Vegas
Floyd Mayweather’s unanimous decision win against Manny Pacquiao in today’s “Fight of the Century” was a fair result — but the fight failed to deliver the decisive outcome this rivalry deserves.
The judges scored the fight 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112 in Mayweather’s favour and he was clearly the superior fighter.
But he also never hurt Pacquiao at any stage in a fight that featured no knockdowns.
Former champ Oscar De La Hoya, who has fought both men, apologised on behalf of the boxing world for the lack of action.... http://www.news.com.au/sport/boxing/floyd-mayweather-vs-manny-pacquiao-in-las-vegas/story-fndkzthy-1227332576205

Mayweather fought the perfect fight in tune with his ability and did not take any chances which may have worked against him. People watching the fight all thought the Pacman won on points but this was far from it. The Pacman certainly did most of the work but this does not mean he should get the pat. Without using a card I saw Mayweather outboxing Pac for the first 2 rounds, Pacquiao did well to win the mid rounds and thats because Mayweather saved his energy when realizing the Pacman was spending his condition. In the later rounds when the Pacman slowed down it was his turn to perform to ensure he gets and stays in front. It was a wonderful fight and I loved the way the fighters showed massive respect for one another. A great show for the game of boxing. I was amazed at the guys from Melton calling me sir, goes to show that if you live a good life and treat people well it pays off well eventually, I had a great a time. by YV

Klitschko defends heavyweight boxing title
Wladimir Klitschko has easily outpointed a game-but-outclassed Bryant Jennings in the champion's return to the United States, defending his heavyweight titles with a unanimous decision.
Klitschko was in control from the outset in New York in his 18th straight successful defence.
His jab and straight right hands kept Jennings from getting inside, and the unbeaten American had little chance of winning from distance.
The overwhelmingly pro-Klitschko crowd of 17,056 roared loudly with every thundering punch by the champ.
They chanted Ukrainian slogans when he entered the arena and when the decision was announced: 116-111 on two cards, 118-109 on another.... https://au.news.yahoo.com/thewest/sport/a/27358052/klitschko-defends-heavyweight-boxing-title/

Asis stops McKenzie; Bennett halts Barboza
By Ray Wheatley — World of Boxing
Australian based Filipino, Jack Asis (33-18-5, 18 KOs) stopped Kye McKenzie (14-1, 12 KOs) in round eight of a scheduled twelve round IBO 130 pound world title bout at Newcastle, NSW, Australia on Saturday. Referee Gary Dean saved McKenzie from further punishment at 1-28 of round eight when the Australian could not defend himself. The fight had been contested on even terms but in round eight Asis gained control and had McKenzie in trouble.

WBO #9 140 pounder Chad “Hollywood” Bennett (36-4-3, 28 KOs) stopped Pablo Martin Barboza (23-5, 9 KOs) in round five of scheduled ten round bout. Bennett was the aggressor from opening bell and at :22 of round five referee John Gauchi crowned the Australian after the Argentinian was counted out after being dropped by a body shot. The 41-year-old Bennett failed to make the 135 pound weight limit so the vacant IBO title was not up for grabs as originally was scheduled.....http://www.fightnews.com/Boxing/asis-stops-mckenzie-bennett-halts-barboza-286103

Boxing can seriously damage your brain but its a small price paid by a small percentage of participants that are harmed
It gets you to become a respectful person in yourself and gain respect by others.
It rises your health close to, if not the fittest achievement of all sports.
Teaches self-discipline and respect other disciplined persons.
It steers you away from smoking cigarettes, drugs and alcohol as they are a dangerous combination to

Condolences from YoungVictorBoxing to his whole family with hope that they will recover from this horrific event


In a battle of undefeated fighters in which 20 year old Filipino John Vincent Moralde stunned favored 23 year old Australian Brayd Smith to win the WBC Asia Boxing Council Continental featherweight title in Smith’s hometown of Toowoomba, Queensland on Saturday, Smith was flown to a hospital in Brisbane after he collapsed while talking to some friends 30 minutes after the fight.

Maniatis said Smith who is a lawyer, complained of a headache and collapsed and was rushed to Brisbane on a helicopter ambulance.
Maniatis said Smith had a blood clot in his brain.
Moralde and his team didn’t know about the tragic situation of Smith whose manager/agent Brendon Smith is also the trainer of Michael Katsidis, as they were en route back to the Philippines.
It was Moralde’s first fight abroad but the promising youngster who is handled by youthful Jim Claude Manangquil showed no signs of nerves as he out-boxed Smith who was a noted puncher but couldn’t land a big shot while Moralde nailed the more experienced Aussie with some excellent combinations.
Moralde received the nod of all three judges by wide margins of 99-91, 98-92 and 97-93.

But Tapia, 25, was too good as he became only the second fighter to halt Dawson in 46 fights.
