If it was improbable the first time around as amateurs, it’s even more so now as pros. The debut of KSI and Logan Paul will take place this weekend. The boxing community seems to be split down the middle as to whether this is a pure joke or it will implore the casual sports fan to take an interest in the sweet science.
Over the weekend, Garcia faced off with his toughest challenge up to date against Romero Duno (21-2, 16 KO’s) of the Philippines. Well that was on paper at least.
On Thursday, Nov 7th Unfeated IBF/WBA Reg Bantamweight Champion Naoya Inoue (18-0, 16KOs) will clash with WBA (Super) Champion (40-5, 26KOs) at the Saitama Super Arena in Japan.
In front of a packed house at the MGM Grand and Casino in Las Vegas, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (51-1-2, 36KOs) proved why he is one of the best fighters in the world today.
Garcia is looking to prove his doubters wrong and showcase his talents. Romero Duno on the other hand is looking to beat Garcia and put his name in the conversation as an elite lightweight fighter.
On Saturday, November 2nd, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (52-1-2, 35KOs) will move up two weight classes to face off against WBO Lightheavyweight Champion, Sergey “Krusher” Kovalev (34-3-1, 29KOs) at MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV.
While Kovalev may not be in his absolute prime, he is still a supremely dangerous opponent. Should Canelo get the victory this Saturday, it would be hard to argue that he is not the best pound-for-pound fighter on the planet. But some believe that Kovalev will pull an upset…
After defeating Regis Prograis for the IBF and WBA world titles in the World Boxing Super Series, who’s next for the 28 year-old Scottish fighter?
With the momentum going back and forth throughout the fight and both guys getting their fair share of bumps and bruises, each fighter put on a tremendous performance in the championship rounds.
2019 has been a memorable year so far, full of upsets and comebacks. As we reach the final months of the year, it’s time to review who the best fighters in boxing are. Who has cracked our pound-for-pound list ? Let’s see.
This Saturday October 26th marks what could be the beginning of the Shakur Stevenson era. The vacant WBO featherweight title on the line, which was left behind by Oscar Valdez (26-0, 20KOs) when he moved up to 130lbs. Shakur Stevenson (12-0, 7KOs) will take on fellow undefeated fighter Joet Gonzalez (23-0, 14KOs), in Reno, Nevada. This fight will pit the number one and two ranked WBO featherweights in the division against one another.
On Saturday, October 26th, WBA/WBC (Diamond) Super Lightweight Champion, Regis “Rougarou” Prograis (24-0, 20KOs) will clash with IBF Champ Josh “The Tartan Tornado” Taylor (15-0, 12KOs) at O2 Arena in East London, UK. Aside from the monster unification, the winner will be awarded the Muhammad Ali trophy, along with 10 million dollars.
The fight was a rematch from their 2009 amateur battle, where Beterbiev won by way of stoppage in the second round. The rematch had Gvozdyk wanting to prove that he isn’t the same fighter as before and wanting to redeem himself and Beterbiev wanting to prove he’s still the better of the two.
Patrick Day fought for his life until the very end, just as he did in the ring. After four days in a coma, he succumbed to his injuries and passed away today, October 16, 2019. He was just 27 years old.
On Friday, October 18th, IBF Light Heavyweight Champ Artur Beterbiev (14-0, 14KOs) will face off against WBC/Lineal Champ Oleksandr “The Nail” Gvozdyk (17-0, 14KOs) at the Liacouras Center, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. This should be a treat for fans. We rarely get to see two top undefeated champions putting it all on the line for a unification.
