Belgian welter “Sugar” Jackson Osei Bonsu headlined the annual Christmas Day show in Izegem and won on a second round disqualification over Brazilian Luis Augusto Dos Santos. Dos Santos was floored in the first but got up and did allright but was then caught by a left hook and went down again. As he got up he spat out the mouthpiece to get more time and had a point deducted. In the second all fight is reported to have left the Brazilian, who flopped over after a light body shot and as he was down the towel came in. The retirement wasn´t accepted by referee Daniel Van De Wiele, who instead dq´d Dos Santos. Next up for Jackson is a fight for the WPBF title February 20 in Leuven, a city near Brussells.
WBA “regular” middleweight champ Gennadyi Golovkin have interim ruler Hassan N´Dam as mandatory challenger with January 30 as deadline for the fight to happen. Golovkin and his team have offered N´Dam 100 000 USD for the fight with January 18 in Berlin as date. However, a purse bid seems more likely with the fight to happen later in 2011. There´s also rumors that the promotional contract between N´Dam and Asventure Promotion, headed by Sebastien Acaries, have expired. Another rumor says N´Dam will defend his portion of the title in February and for now bypass Golovkin. Team Golovkin have also offered WBC interim king Sebastian Zbik a substantial offer with the fight to happen in New York. Add to the mix Golovkin´s unsettled business with Universum and one can easly write that there is more to come.
