28-year old unrated boxer fights for a WBC "Youth" title
by Sue TL Fox
August 15, 2011

     
   
   
   
   

(AUG 15)  On August 13, 2011, at the Deportivo Tlalli, in Tlalnepantla, México, Ibeth Zamora Silva, 22 years old, of Mexico, 108, fought unrated Yacksury Gordon, 28 years old, 108, in the defense of her WBC Youth female light flyweight title. Silva won by a third round TKO over Gordon.

WBAN received many emails reporting to us about this WBC "Youth" title fight, that the boxing community wanted to have added to our new segment:  TITLE FIGHTS: YOU HAVE TO BE KIDDING!  (Ask and ye shall receive---this fight qualifies to be documented in that database that will archive any and all questionable title bouts in the sport.).

In their WBC youth rules that is posted on the net, they state the following:  "At the discretion of the World Boxing Council Youth Committee, a current Youth Champion will be allowed to defend his title against a qualified opponent over the age of 22 years/11 months in the champion’s weight class. If the champion is victorious he retains the title and the fight will count as a title defense. If he is defeated the title will be declared vacant. (This rule is an exception to the general rules for the “superstar” fighter and will not be applied on a regular basis.)" Link to their WBC Rules

So, apparently, is it at the discretion of the WBC, to allow the champion to fight much older boxers, who incidentally are unranked boxers?

And so what IS in it for the opponent fighting the defending Youth fighter(s)----one might ask?

Apparently the older mature adult fighter gets "Nothing" if they win.  They receive NO BELT?  The title becomes VACANT?  What in the world are these people smoking?  (chuckle)

Tale of the Tape for the Ratings of both boxers:
Ratings Information:
Boxrec: Silva rated #4 as a junior flyweight, Gordon, not rated. Ratings Information for the WBC Ratings: Rated #7 as a Strawweight, Gordon, not rated. WBAN Ratings: Silva rated #4 strawweight, Gordon, not rated.
