Monaghan is ranked 10th contender by the WBC and seventh by the WBO. Stevenson won 23 times by KO or TKO, against 17 times for Monaghan.

  Bob Arum: "N'Dam vs. Murata Title Fight
Would Be A Sensational Event In Japan"
Teiken Promotions and Top Rank®, have begun negotiations for the vacant World Boxing Association (WBA) middleweight world title between interim WBA middleweight champion Hassan N'Dam and undefeated No. 2 world-rated contender Ryota Murata.

"While N'Dam wants the fight to take place in France, Mr. Honda and I think this fight would do extremely well in Japan and we are pulling out all stops in trying to bring it there," said Hall of Fame promoter Bob Arum. "Since winning Olympic gold in 2012, Ryota has developed a rabid fan base in Japan and we think those fans deserve to see their hero fight for his first professional world title. It would be a sensational event in Japan."

  Boxing At It's Best  
By Mauricio Sulaiman
WBC President – Jose Sulaiman’s son

The Boxing Writers Association of America held its annual awards dinner, and it was so nice to see the boxing community together, so humbling to hear the speeches that brought tears to many and, for once, to see promoters, managers, boxers, television executives, trainers, and anyone involved in the sport interact with the major players of the boxing media in the United States. Congratulations to the BWAA for a successful event which was clearly prepared with passion and dedication to honor the best of 2016.

  Matt Remillard's Ring Comeback No April Fool's Joke  
The long trip back begins April 1st for Matt "Sharp Shooter" Remillard, 12 years to the day from his professional debut, on the "New England's Future 2" show at the Palladium in Worcester, Massachusetts.

Remillard (23-1, 13 KOs), fighting out of Manchester, Connecticut, hasn't boxed for the six years, due to him serving a five-year prison sentence. He takes on Lawrence (MA) lightweight Augustine "Ruthless" Mauras (6-1-3, 3 KOs) in the eight-round co-feature. If their tense, near volatile stare-down at a recent press conference is a true indication, Remillard vs. Mauras is not going the distance, to put things mildly.

MSG Fight Night Thoughts

I am not outraged by the decision in the Srisaket Sor Rungvisai vs. Roman Gonzalez title fight. It was a great scrap and the Thai fighter showed he is far from a no named fluke. Gonzalez was tough and had a good night but he seems to be a shell of his former self now that he has stepped up in weight. This was far from a robbery.
