On Saturday night, March 16, 2019 we witnessed undefeated the WBC Lightweight World Champion – Mikey Garcia (39-1, 30KOs) – move up not one but two weight classes to challenge the boogeyman IBF Welterweight World Champion Errol Spence Jr. (25-0, 21KOs) in a huge showdown. A lot of fans, experts, legends and current fighters had Spence as the huge favorite given his significant size advantage over Garcia.
Can Shawn Porter (30-2-1, 17 KOs) really hang with the top welterweights? He has fought top and mid-level welterweights within the division but the results have not been very convincing. Last nights display against Yordenis Ugas (23-4, 11 KOs) was far from convincing and many had him losing the fight including the Fox TV broadcasters.
Shawn Porter (30-2-1, 17 KOs) defended his WBC Welterweight Title against Yordenis Ugas (23-4, 11 KOs) in what turned out to be a great fight. This fight was everything it was supposed to be due to the fact that both fighters had complimentary styles.

On Saturday, we saw Manny Pacquaio (61-7-2, 39 KOs) take on Adrien Broner (33-4-1, 24 KOs) which was a huge event not only for boxing but for sports worldwide. We had a legend and all time great Manny Pacquaio who isn’t half of what he used to be but still respected because of his speed, power and experience. With him being 40 years of age and having fought multiple wars in his career, a lot of fans expected a good fight between him facing and the younger Adrien Broner, a former four-time world champion in four different weight classes.
Caleb Plant came in as the fighter with so many unanswered questions for the fans who wondered if he could hurt Jose. Could he keep Jose from pressuring him around the ring? Could he last 12 rounds with Uzcategui? After Plant’s his performance on Sunday night, those questions were answered!
Vasyl Lomachenko’s (12-1, 9 KOs) performance Saturday night versus Jose Pedraza (25-2, 12 KOs) left me questioning whether or not Loma is the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world and I could only land on one answer…
