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.
This Saturday, two of boxing’s top pound-for-pound fighters will square off when Errol Spence Jr. (24-0, 21KO’s) defends his IBF welterweight title against four-division world champion Mikey Garcia (39-0, 30KO’s) in Dallas, Texas. The fight, which will be broadcast by Fox Pay-Per-View, is highly anticipated by many fans and boxing media alike, but also criticized by others.
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.
