FLASH BACK

Domestically Scotland remains poised to kick off 2020 for British fight fans so last weekend the only real fight news was all coming from abroad. The USA, on Saturday the 11th of January, gave usthe WBC and WBO super middleweight title fight between Franchon Crews Dezurn and Alejandra Jimenez. I was left with going for name recognition here and it was only afterwards that I realised that I misgendered Alejandra Jiminez – my apologies for that. Both boxers being unknown to me is not an excuse and I am not going to make it; but I will not challenge the view she is a woman unlike others…

Following her split decision win to take both the WBC and WBO super middleweight titles, former world champion, Carlette Ewell claimed that there is something off about the new champ. She says she has proof that Jiminez was born male and has transitioned to female. Alon with her further claim of collusion by the WBC because the sanctioning body want a Jiminez/Claressa Shields fight in the future this was massive news in the void of action worldwide. And you thought the male version included trash talking…

Meanwhile over in Brussels former Connor Benn nemesis, Cedrick Peynaud lost on points for the BENELUX welterweight title to Anass Messaoudi.
