By Guan Yongning BEIJING (Reuters) - Mike Tyson has branded the Amateur International Boxing Association's (AIBA) decision to let professional fighters take part in the 2016 Rio Olympics as "ridiculous" and "foolish". Professional boxers would feature at the Olympic games as long as a constitutional change went through in June, AIBA said earlier this year. Former world heavyweight champion Tyson, who as an amateur won gold at the 1981 and 1982 Junior Olympic Games, said on Wednesday that professional boxers would be stunned by the fast-paced fighting style of the amateur fighters.

6 Boxing-Ireland's Taylor qualifies for Rio Olympics (Reuters)
Ireland's Olympic lightweight boxing champion Katie Taylor qualified for the Rio Games on Tuesday after reaching the semi-finals of the women's world championships in Astana. Taylor, the London 2012 gold medallist, suffered a shock defeat in a European qualifier in Turkey last month and needed to make the last four at the worlds to secure her place on the plane to Brazil.

It seems fair to allow Vargas to compete on June 4 against Orlando Salido, but his positive Clenbuterol test underlines a larger problem in boxing.

8 Column: McGregor vs Mayweather, a freak show with precedent (The Associated Press)

The freak show Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Connor McGregor are talking about probably wont happen, though stranger things have happened. (AP Photo/File)

The freak show that Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Conor McGregor are talking about will almost surely never happen, and for that anyone who would even consider opening their wallet to pay for it should be grateful. For any number of different reasons, it is about as likely to happen as Rhonda Rousey fighting Mayweather, an idea that got some traction among babblers everywhere last year. In search of a good payday, he agreed to go on another trip overseas - to Japan to fight professional wrestler Antonio Inoki in a 15-round match.

Russia's Denis Lebedev stopped Argentina's Victor Emilio Ramirez in the second round to unify the WBA and IBF cruiserweight titles on Saturday. Lebedev, who came in as the WBA champion, moved well from the start and hit Ramirez with hard left uppercuts early in the second round, eventually knocking down the Argentine. Ramirez beat the count and continued, but within seconds he was overwhelmed by more hammer blows from Lebedev's left, and the referee stepped in to stop the fight.

Yunier Dorticos of Cuba used unrelenting uppercuts and impressive accuracy to stop Youri Kalenga in the 10th round and take the vacant WBA interim cruiserweight title in Paris on Friday. Kalenga, who has made France his home since leaving the Democratic Republic of the Congo, was comprehensively out-boxed by the unbeaten quicker and clinical Miami-based Dorticos. Dorticos sent Kalenga to the canvas with a string of four uppercuts in the second round, as well as a crunching right hand as his opponent was going down.
