Recently a discussion came up on Bullshido, which is a website dedicated to exposing fraud in the martial arts, concerning a boxer named or using the alias of "Michael Corleone".
Mr. Corleone is stating to have been awarded the IBO-IC Welterweight title, by former IBO President John Dadanno, on or around the morning of 4/6/1997, after losing the Jr. Welterweight title fight to Scott De Pompe on 4/5/1997.
There is no records on boxrec of any IBO-IC Welterweight title matches from 12/12/1996-10/16/1999 and no mention of Mr. Corleone ever having been awarded that vacant title nor subsequently losing it in the ring.
Any insight you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. You may do so by the email provided below -or- via the website linked above.
