STEPHEN ORMOND

WBU Lightweight Champion

From Gian (Rio) Di Luca  - London – Thursday, 13th June 2013

Newly Crowned Champ Ormond Fights In London on July 5th; he then wants Kevin Mitchell or Ricky Burns

Newly crowned WBU Lightweight Champion Stephen ‘The Rock’ Ormond makes a welcome return to York Hall in London on Friday 5thJuly, where he will be boxing against a yet to be named opponent, on the Dave Murphy, in association with Acourtier Events, promoted ‘Independence Day’ mega show.

On his last visit to York Hall, in July last year, the Dubliner convincingly beat former Irish champ Mickey Coveney in a rematch of their Battle Royale at the Braehead Arena in Glasgow back in March 2011.

Of the back of this superb win Ormond was presented the opportunity to face Hungarian Laszio Robert Balogh  for the vacant WBU crown, an opportunity he grabbed with both hands

On just his fourteenth professional outing, on the 3rd of May 2013, at the Carlton Hotel in Tyrrelstown, Dublin, Ormond stepped into the ring to face thirty three fight veteran Balogh.

Balogh may have had more experience, but it was Ormond that dominated the opening round, before going on to stop the Hungarian in just one minute and fifty four seconds of the second stanza.

With the WBU World Title belt proudly nestling in his trophy cabinet, Ormond has turned his focus on fighting more in the UK in his quest for further accolades, especially the WBO title currently in the firm grip of Coatbridge, Scotland’s Ricky Burns.

Speaking from his Dublin training camp, Ormond made it more than clear that the aforementioned Burns, as well as Dagenham’s Kevin Mitchell, are well and truly in his sights.

“I’m really looking forward to fighting on July 5th in London. I don’t know who I’m fighting yet, but I promise I will be ready for them.

My team has big plans for me and that means I’ll be fighting more and more in the UK, starting with the July 5th fight, which suits me, I love fighting in the UK and can’t wait to get back there.

I would like to fight the top guys in the weight division, big names like Kevin Mitchell or Ricky Burns, as soon as possible.

I’m not looking past whoever I fight on the 5th July, anything but, just I believe I have what it takes to beat these guys and I want to fight them, hopefully these fights can be made soon.

By fighting in London more and putting in some really good performances, hopefully Eddie Hearn will take notice and I’ll get to fight Kevin or Ricky, sooner than later.”

Stephen ‘The Rock’ Ormond, against a yet to be named opponent, features on the undercard of the Jennifer Rezke - Mikaela Laurén, Light Middleweight World Championship fight, that headlines the Dave Murphy, in association with Acourtier Events, promoted ‘Independence Day’ event, which takes place at York Hall in Bethnal Green, London, on Friday 5thJuly 2013. ~

June 26th, 2009 - A Day Of Mourning For The Boxing Family

The World Boxing Council is enjoined by Boxing Action to respectfully express deep sorrow at the passing of stunning actress Farrah Fawcett, who married WBC`s close friend, Ryan O’Neal, star of the boxing movie “Main Event”.

Farrah and Ryan were guests at the 1983 landmark ceremony for boxing in the United Nations building, which is located in New York, USA.

The profound grief of the WBC and boxing is further expressed at the passing of Michael Jackson another friend of WBC President, Dr. Jose Sulaiman.

Michael Jackson was the astonishingly talented genius who proved to be ‘The Greatest’ in a galaxy of ‘Greats’.

He was the skyscraper that stood the tallest in the prolifically talented star spangled entertainment cosmos. His genius filled with joy and excitement all those he touched and reached throughout a career, which was as turbulent as it was remarkably original and successful.

The tragedies fill the heart with sadness and today the World  is a sadder place.

As a mark of respect June 26th, 2009  is declared to be a Day of World Mourning within the boxing family; any other who may wish to stand with us on this terribly sad occasion is welcomed with open arms.

R.I.P. Farah.
R.I.P. Michael.

http://img.skysports.com/07/07/218x298/neville_504981.jpg Being a football manager reminds me of boxing,” Gary Neville said, mulling over his prospects of entering the dugout. “Twenty years ago, you would fight the best and get beat, but that didn't matter. You'd have another go. “These days, boxing is stage-managed. They plot a path to the top because lose one fight and you're seen as a bum.
