"Fight Code" / "Boxer Code

When creating a fight page, remember to add the "fight code" at the very top of the page. The fight code is the fight number (which you can see at the top of any fight page) contained within "fight" code tags, like this: <fight>12345</fight>

The fight code will automatically insert the names of the boxers, result, location, and date. You can then add other text and images. You can get other instructions and help here.

Boxer Code

For your information, regarding the "boxer code," it is similar to the fight code, which you now seemed to have mastered. However, when creating a boxer page, first go to the BoxRec career record, then click on the blue book "biography" icon. That will bring you to a (usually) empty wiki page here. Then remember to add the "boxer code" at the very top of the page. The boxer code is his global ID number contained within "boxer" code tags, like this: <boxer>12345</boxer>

The boxer code will automatically insert the name of the boxer, and the other bio stats from his BoxRec career record page. You can then add other text and images. --Ric 19:35, 28 October 2007 (CDT)

Moving Fights

When moving a fight page please use vs. between the fighters names and not v. as you have been doing. Thanks--Rowdytimothy 20:25, 9 March 2008 (CDT)

Will do. Thank you. --Reenthelawman

Your Recent Edits

Have you noticed that when making some of your recent edits that these strange square characters appear where apostrophes and so forth should be? You should be correcting these. --Ric 03:33, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Thanks for bringing this to my attention Ric. I must admit I didn't notice it at all, but I'll be looking out for it.--Reenthelawman 05:35, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

I reverted the Tommy Burns page to fix this, not necessarily to delete the CBF champion category. (But, anyway, the CBF did not exist when Burns was champion, did it? mI thought you wrote it came into being in 1925.) --Ric 13:28, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

I understand. I'm investigating why my edit would have left these weird characters. With regard to the CBF, you are correct that it only came in existence in 1925, but one of its first official decrees was to recognize all previous Canadian champions as CBF champions in order to preserve the lineage (turns out that wasn't exactly a necessity as the Canadian title lost a lot of its prestige in the following decades, before being "brought back to life" by the recent Canadian boxing revival). In any event, thank you again for your time Ric, it is very much appreciated. --Reenthelawman 14:25, 15 July 2008 (UTC)

Canadian Boxing Federation Pages

Great work on your Canadian Boxing Federation pages! Please e-mail me at ric@boxrec.com --Ric 04:29, 23 July 2008 (UTC)

Elizondo vs. Lopez fight for NABA title

Please use this forum to request the title at stake be corrected. Mistakes in the BoxRec database can be reported there among other things. As I'm not a BoxRec editor, I have no access to the database and cannot rectify the error myself.--Emaster 20:53, 4 August 2008 (UTC)

Brizel

He is at it again. Does he even understand what subjective text is? I feel like we are as far apart with him as we have ever been.--Matt Tegen 06:12, 16 August 2008 (UTC)

Powell vs. Perez Light Middleweight fight in 1991

I included this because it was in the BoxRec database. I have no information as to whether it is an actual NABO title fight or not. It did seem odd. I think that the information in the encyclopedia and in the BoxRec database should match. If it is not an actual title fight it should be changed in the database and likewise on the NABO title fights page. Maybe somebody who edits the BoxRec database could check this out.--Rowdytimothy 00:00, 23 January 2009 (UTC)

Name and records of the fighters in the wiki

Certainly you can go back to the fighter's page and see their their current record or their record at the time of the fight. It simply keeps you from having to click back from page to page to find out. Too, boxrec does not list their total knockouts at the time and the only way to calculate this would be to count them. For instance, how many KOs did Jack Dempsey have when he fought Bill Brennan? Without counting them, that data is not available. It's simply a shortcut. Honestly, I really think that this information should appear when entering the fight code on wiki. Whereas now the two fighters' weights appear, it would seem more pertinent for the two fighters records with KOs to automatically be entered.

Doc Snell & Canadian Title

I today revisited the Seattle Times and Seattle Post-Intelligencer newspapers, to confirm whether Doc Snell had won the Canadian Bantamweight Title with this bout with Foley. Snell did not, because both were over-weight. (The Seattle Times implied that Snell would have won the title if both had made weight.) So, I have edited that bout. You may wish to delete Snell from this category, as well as edit other applicable pages and categories. Sorry for the confusion. --Ric 00:40, 13 April 2009 (UTC)

Weights

No need to add weights, as the "fight code" automatically does that. (See the very top of this fight page you just edited.) --Ric 15:43, 20 May 2009 (UTC)

Johnny O'Leary

You have O'Leary 1st defense of his Canadian Lightweight title against both Hector McDonald and Joe Bayley. Please clarify. (Good work, by the way.) --Ric 02:28, 29 June 2009 (UTC)

Another Canadian Lightweight title bout

I found a new Canadian title bout: Harpal Talhan W 12 over Nedrick Simmons in Edmonton on March 9, 1991--Matt Tegen 03:35, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

There is a second as well with Simmons winning over Henri Guenette in Windsor, Ontario on September 10, 1993 (TKO 9). I presume this was a vacant title fight, however Howard Grant appears to have won the title in May 1992. So was he stripped a year later when Simmons won a title belt, only to lose to Grant for the title in January 1994?--Matt Tegen 03:40, 12 July 2009 (UTC)

New Canadian champ

Found a new Canadian title bout and champion; on December 15, 1943 won by Florian Bibeau KO 4 over Lulu O'Connor in Montreal for the vacant flyweight title.--Matt Tegen 20:26, 18 February 2010 (UTC)

Canadian Flyweight title

Here is another unrecorded Canadian Flyweight title bout, where the belt appears to have changed hands between two unrecorded titleholders. [1] --Matt Tegen 16:49, 2 May 2010 (UTC)

Another bout between the same two boxers, with Aurelian Lamouthe, regaining the crown. [2]

Here's another article indicating that Lamothe was named champion on November 2, 1937.[3] --Matt Tegen 17:13, 2 May 2010 (UTC)


NABA page

I did this for easy access. The pages for all groups are not always updated. This way any editor can view a page and quickly see if the current champions are actually current. Then if he or she has the time they could quickly update the page as the link with the necessary information is on the same page. Also this shows the Total History on one page rather than having to click and view each weight class Some others, like the USBA, United States Boxing Association, do not have a grid with CURRENT TITLE HOLDERS so the link would be helpful for yourself or anyone who creat a Grid for that group like the one that already exist for the NABA--- thanks Journeymen

Sugar Ray Leonard vs. Pete Ranzany

I didn't delete content. I left the information about Ranzany making his sixth title defense, and I left the link to the NABF BoxRec page. I added information. I added their WBC rankings going into the fight, the amount of the purses, and a link to a newspaper account of the fight, which you deleted. As for referencing title fights in a certain way, is there a certain way they are supposed to be referenced? I noticed that Leonard's world title fights weren't all referenced the same way. The Green and Duran title fights are referenced differently, and the page for the Finch fight didn't even reference the titles. --Ville 03:39, 31 May 2010 (UTC)
