Baysangurov vs. Konecny Gloves Scandal
KIEV, UKRAINE (October 6, 2012) Just hours ahead of his WBO Junior Middleweight Championship showdown with defending champion Zaurbek Baysangurov, challenger and WBO “Interim” Junior Middleweight Champion Lukas Konecny was involved in a gloves scandal after the official weigh-in on Friday.
With ten-ounce boxing gloves being used for this junior middleweight world title bout, at the official rules meeting the Konecny Team produced a pair of gloves from the Top Ten Company marked “10 OZ”.
However Baysangurov’s trainer, Abel Sanchez observed that they looked suspicious and were too small for ten ounces and requested that WBO Supervisor John Duggan weigh the gloves.
With the gloves only weighing eight ounces, Supervisor Duggan disqualified their usage in the world title fight.
“As the pictures show and the weighing of the gloves confirmed, these were not ten ounce gloves.” said Tom Loeffler, Managing Director of K2 Promotions. “In all of the world championship bouts K2 has promoted across the world, we have never come across this situation before.”
The Baysangurov/Konecny clash, from the Sport Palace in Kiev, Ukraine, will be broadcast LIVE on the UK’s premier boxing channel, BoxNation, (www.BoxNation.com)
