Happy New Year and welcome to 2019! What better way to kick off a new year of boxing than to post our 2019 Wish List. The world of boxing is buzzing with competitive trash talk and intrigue, as there are an abundance of interesting fights that have yet to take place. We’ve captured our Top 5 wishes for boxing this year and threw in a few honorable mentions as well. Enjoy!
After a great year of boxing fights that included brutal KO’s, monumental upsets, and the emergence of the next generation of great fighters, it’s only appropriate that we acknowledge the top boxing moments and fighters of 2018.
Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39KOs) vs Adrien Broner (33-3-1, 24KOs) takes place on January 19 on Showtime PPV. This fight is going to be interesting to watch because it’ll let the public know what’s left in both fighters. Pacquiao is 40 years old and is in the twilight of an illustrious career. His opponent Adrien Broner is a former four division world champion and eleven years younger but his career has been tainted by lack of focus and discipline.
With these two performances, what did we learn about Jermell and Jermall Charlo to wrap up 2018?
Charlo is hoping to make a big statement this weekend and prove to the boxing world that he is ready for all the big names he’s been calling out in the middleweight division, most notably Canelo Alvarez.
On Saturday December 22, 2018 in Manchester, Carl “The Jackal” Frampton (26-1 18 KOs) will take on IBF Featherweight Champion Josh Warrington (27-0 6 KOs). In the USA, the fight will be shown on ESPN+, otherwise you can catch the fight on BT Sport Box Office. It should be interesting to see if Warrington can pull off another upset like he did in his last fight against Lee Selby.
On Saturday night, December 22nd, Jermell Charlo (31-0 15 KOs) meets Tony Harrison (27-2 21 KOs) at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY, and live on FoxSports. This is actually a better fight than most people are giving it credit for. There’s no sure thing here; there never is. However, this is intriguing from a clash of styles perspective. There are ways for each fighter to defeat the other.
Anthony Joshua wants a a big name for his April 13th fight, not one who can just fill up seats but one who respectfully deserves it and will come to win. With that being said, the next possible option would be the winner of this Saturday’s rematch between Dillian Whyte (24-1, 17 KO’s) and Dereck Chrisora (29-8, 21 KO’s).
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…
What a fight we witnessed last night!!! Credit goes to both fighters for building up this event and putting on a spectacle in front of a sold out Staples Center. We had Tyson Fury winning […]
The long awaited fight between American, Deontay Wilder (40-0, 39 KO’s), and British, Tyson Fury (27-0, 19 KOs) takes place tonight on Showtime Pay-Per-View at 9pm EST, live from The Staples Center in Los Angeles, California. The winner of this will will undoubtedly face fellow heavyweight, Anthony Joshua (22-0, 21 KOs) to determine who is the undisputed heavyweight champion of the world.
Tonight HBO Boxing will broadcast its final boxing event ever at Madison Square Garden. After 45 years of broadcasting some of boxing’s most iconic fights and fighters, HBO had decided to get out of the boxing business. From George Foreman’s upset of Joe Frazier to Buster Douglas’ shocking knockout of Mike Tyson, HBO has broadcast many memorable moments in boxing history.
