Boxing Matches to Look Forward To
The upcoming boxing schedule is packed with some exciting fights to look forward to. Rematches, championship bouts, and grudge matches are all on the cards over the next couple of months.
With some massive title fights on the horizon, boxing greats begin here. Read on to find out which fights you should be on the lookout for.
Demetrius Andrade vs. Jason Quigley
Demetrius Andrade is putting his WBO middleweight championship and his 30-0 record on the line as he is set to face Jason Quigley in New Hampshire in mid-November. Andrade, who has 18 KO’s to his name, is looking for a statement win and to start the journey to unification.
With a record of 19-1, Jason Quigley put himself in prime position for a title shot by defeating Shane Mosley Jr. by decision. While Quigley can win, Andrade is looking too strong. A shock defeat will rock the boxing world, but this looks like Andrade’s fight to lose.
Hosea Burton vs. Dan Azeez
Burton and Azeez will be fighting for the British light-heavyweight title later this year. Burton has experience on his side and holds a record of 26-2-0. He has the power and stamina to go the full match, but Azeez looks to be on another level.
With a record of 14-0, Azeez is looking (almost too) dominant in the ring. He destroyed a warm-up opponent in two rounds in the build-up to this fight, as he is looking to become the best light-heavyweight in Britain.
Terence Crawford vs. Shawn Porter
Crawford vs. Porter is looking to be one of the best fights of the year. Porter currently holds a record of 31-3-1, with 17 knockouts, and is going into this fight as the underdog. Many experts also believe he has quite a good shot at pulling off the upset of the year.
However, in the opposite corner will be Terence Crawford. Crawford currently holds a record of 27-0 with 28 knockouts to his name. He is a machine, and can be a terrifying fighter to go up against; however, as mentioned, a shock defeat could be on the horizon.
Teofimo Lopez vs. George Kambosos
People have almost lost track of how many times this fight has been rescheduled over the past few months. Lopez’s much-anticipated title defense is set to take place against 19-0 George Kambosos.
Kambosos may be coming in as the challenger, but he feels like Lopez isn’t taking this fight as seriously as he should. Lopez is looking at it as a stepping stone while Kambosos is here to stop him in his tracks. This fight has been building for too long; it is unlikely to go to decision.
Stephen Fulton vs. Brandon Figueroa
This battle for the belts sees Fulton putting his WBO belt and 19-0 record on the line against Figueroa’s WB belt and 22-0 record. This is the type of fight the boxing world has been craving lately.
They aren’t the biggest names in the sport, but they aren’t worried about hype or being noticed. They want to take on the best possible fights they can get, and one man leaving as a double-champion should be more than enough reason to tune into this one.
Joseph Parker vs. Dereck Chisora
Joseph Parker and Dereck Chisora are set for their rematch just before Christmas. Earlier this year, the two men faced off in a bout that was touted as one of the best this year. The fight started on a high, with Chisora earning himself an early knockdown in the first round.
However, the fight went to a decision, with Parker edging it. This decision loss was another for Chisora, as he has been on the losing side of close split decisions five times now. An immediate rematch was always going to happen.
However, the first fight was slightly disappointing, with it going to decision simply due to the lack of action. However, if either of them wants to be in the conversation for a title shot, they are going to have to prove it.
Jake Paul vs. Tommy Fury
There has been a lot of talk of Jake Paul’s fights being fixed, and with Fury coming out and making it clear that no amount of money will get him to roll over and lose, this could well end up being the pummeling and proper fight we have been waiting for.
Jake Paul is sitting with a record of 4-0, but who knows how legitimate that may be, and Fury holds a clean 7-0 record. Fury is easily the favorite, but we still have to see how legitimate this fight will be; only time will tell.
Josh Taylor vs. Jack Catterall
Taylor vs. Catterall may be a fight that has been postponed until February, but the excitement surrounding this fight has not diminished. Taylor is the current undisputed light-welterweight champion, but recently suffered a knee injury in training, hence the rescheduling of the fight.
Catterall is the current mandatory challenger after stepping aside to let Jose Ramirez have his shot at Taylor, with Catterall then facing the winner of that fight. Taylor won, and the fight was decided.
Considering Taylor is the WBA, WBC, IBO, WBO, and The Ring Champion, this fight is literally for all the marbles. It will take place on February 26th in Glasgow, and it is definitely not one to be missed.
As you can see, the next few months are jam-packed with some of the best boxing matches we have seen in a while, not to mention the possible rematches of Usyk vs. Joshua, and who Tyson Fury will fight next. It’s going to be a brilliant few months for boxing fans.
