Friday in Las Vegas, Golden Boy on ESPN opened up with a female interim WBC super middleweight title fight. The fights were live from the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino.
Maricela Cornejo, 12-3, 5 KO’s, faced off against Franchon Crews-Dezurn, 4-1, 1 KO.
When all was said and done, Crews came away with the majority decision victory.
Maybe now we will see a rematch with Clarissa Shields who handed Crews her only loss as a pro.
Official purses according to the Nevada State Athletic Commission:
Canelo Alvarez $5 million, Gennady Golovkin $5 million. Both will make tens of millions more via profits from the promotion and the pay-per-view.
Jaime Munguia $250,000, Brandon Cook $30,000, David Lemieux $200,000, Spike O’Sullivan $400,000, Roman Gonzalez $200,000, Moises Fuentes $35,000

IS FIGHT FAX DONE?
“GENNADY KNOCKING OUT CANELO
WILL BE A PUBLIC SERVICE TO BOXING
AND THE MEXICAN BEEF INDUSTRY!”
- Abel Sanchez
T-Minus two days and counting until undefeated World Middleweight Champion and boxing’s superhero GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN makes his 21st and division record-breaking title defense. It’s taken nearly one year but Golovkin will finally get the rematch he and the world have craved, against former two-division world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. And what a long strange trip it's been to get here.

BREAKING NEWS! Is Fight Fax Dead?
If you have recently been involved in a boxing promotion, you will may have noticed a lot of confusion with your paperwork. Federal ID number, can’t obtain fight faxes, etc.
That’s because (and as we understand it), U.S. commissions recently voted to have BoxRec as the official record keepers from here out. No longer will the commissions sent official results to FightFax, they will be sending the official results to BoxRec.
One of the biggest confusions will be Federal ID numbers, if you are a new boxer, then your BoxRec ID becomes your federal ID number. It’s still not clear as to what number, existing boxers are to use as a federal ID number or how to obtain a new federal ID card.
We’ll have to all sit back and see how this all unfolds but if you are scheduled to fight soon, it’s best you contact your state commission and get things in order before traveling out of state and walk in to a ball of confusion.
