Following the defeat of local light heavyweight Ricky Pow in controversial circumstances last October when he fought for the Latino crown, the WBC has ordered a rematch between the boxer and his conqueror, Emmanuel Feuzeu, after the referee, Francisco Alloza Rosa , was deemed to have stopped the fight prematurely.
Sources close to the WBC suggest that match supervisor Leopoldo Bonias was not altogether satisfied with the outcome after Pow was counted out by Alloza Rosa at the end of the 9th having, according to the judges cards, won 7 of the previous 8 rounds.
Feuzeu caught Pow with about 20 seconds of the round remaining and while the 27 year old Brit covered up on the ropes, the referee stepped in and called the contest to a halt. It would seem that in his report to the WBC Bonias said that, with the bell imminent, Pow should have been given the opportunity to see the flurry out and then recover during the interval between rounds.
However there is some doubt as to whether the fight will take place as Feuzeu is thought to have retired following the contest. If this is the case Pow will be installed as the number one challenger however with an opponent being provided by the WBC. The fight is expected to take place during the early summer.
In the meantime however Pow will be back in action in Dolores where he tops the bill scheduled to take place on 21 February. The card will be made up of a couple of pro fights, 2 or 3 neo pro contests and another 3 or 4 amateur bouts so for between 10 and 15 euro on the door you will certainly get your moneysworth.
Subject to success in Dolores Pow will then headline in Swindon on 14 March on the KM Promotions card which is being held at the Oasis Leisure Centre. Promoter Keith Mayor is known to have long been an admirer of Pow so he is delighted to have the opportunity to feature him on the Swindon bill.
