Jack Culcay (20-1, 10 KOs) took his chance and is the new WBA Interim World Champion at Super Welterweight! Fighting in front of a home crowd against compatriot Maurice Weber (21-2-1, 8 KOs) at the Festhalle Frankfurt (Germany), Culcay dominated most of the rounds. Despite Culcay landing hard punches to Weber’s head and body in the championship rounds, the latter refused to give in, letting the judges make their final verdict. After twelve rounds, “Golden Jack” won by scores of 115:112, 116:111 und 118:110.
Promoter Kalle Sauerland was pleased with Culcay’s performance, saying: “Jack controlled the action and took a deserving victory.

Let’s face it the amount of column inches dedicated to Mayweather-Pacquiao over the past few weeks, you could easily be forgiven thinking that there wasn’t any other boxing events that took place on May 2nd, well there was and I’m pleased to say that I was at one such event – the Mark Lyons and Billy James-Elliott promoted Lords of the Ring event at the iconic York Hall in London.

It went exactly as feared, or hoped, depending on which side of the fence you were on. If you came in expecting action then you were at the wrong fight. If you came looking for answers and a little bit of drama, then you probably came away satisfied, although perhaps a little bit disappointed. It wasn’t until I first saw them nose to nose at the kickoff press conference that I got a real sense of the size difference between these two men. The stats can tell you a lot, but seeing the two of them face to face, Manny looking up into Floyd’s eyes, really gave a sense of the uphill battle that Manny was facing.
