At the final bell of the 12th round, it was evident to all in attendance and watching at home that they had just witnessed the coronation of a new junior middleweight champion.
Miguel Berchelt was coming into this fight as the favorite and rightfully so. Since defeating Francisco Vargas to capture the WBC Super Featherweight Crown in 2017 he went 4-0. He’s a seasoned champion and that’s exactly what he portrayed last night at the Convention Center in Tucson, Arizona.
On Saturday night we finally saw the long awaited showdown between Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KOs) and Daniel ‘Miracle Man’ Jacobs (35-3, 29 KOs) and to some fight fans the clash did not live up to expectations.
Vasiliy Lomachenko is back and he has no shortage of opponents. Whether its a fellow champion, a solid contender, a rising star, or another elite fighter, Lomachenko has options. It will be interesting to see which fights get made and whether he can continue to prove he is among the pound for pound greats.
Last night we saw an action packed fight from start to finish. One fighter’s career was elevated and the other’s came to an end. Sergey ‘Samurai’ Lipinets (15-1, 11 KOs) vs Lamont ‘Havoc’ Peterson (35-5-1, 17 KOs) was a big opportunity for both guys.
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.
This past Saturday, February 16, 2019 we saw WBA super featherweight champion Leo “El Terrremoto” Santa Cruz (36-1-1, 19 KOs) easily outbox last minute replacement Rafael Rivera (26-3-2, 17 KOs) to retain his title, by a wide unanimous decision (119-109 on all scorecards) at L.A Live’s Microsoft Theatre.
We all know that Gervonta Davis is good, but can we put him in that elite status bucket now? I, for one, wanted to see the Abner Mares fight to see if Davis is the […]
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!
With these two performances, what did we learn about Jermell and Jermall Charlo to wrap up 2018?
Anthony Joshua is a bad motherfucker… After another victory and one-sided display, Joshua continues to dominate the heavyweight division. A good victory and a dominant display, although tougher than expected against a solid opponent in […]
What a fight!!! Fight fans got everything that they could have wanted, except for a respectable decision by the judges. Canelo and GGG left everything they had in the ring last night. While we believe […]
