Joe Cordina versus Kenichi Ogawa breakdown

This is a good match up in the super featherweight division between newly crowned IBF world champion Ogawa and 2016 Olympian and rising contender Cordina. The fight will take place in Cardiff, Wales which is Cordina’s home town. Kenichi Ogawa is a come forward fighter with respectable power and more skills than people give himContinue reading “Joe Cordina versus Kenichi Ogawa breakdown”

Errol Spence Jr versus Yordenis Ugas breakdown

This is a great unification fight between two of the best welterweights in the world. Errol Spence is a fighter who can both draw big crowds and really fight which is a rarity in boxing. After being involved in a car crash his career has slowed down a bit and he’s been very inactive recentlyContinue reading “Errol Spence Jr versus Yordenis Ugas breakdown”

Conor Benn versus Chris van Heerden breakdown

Conor Benn is one of the rising stars in British boxing and spearheads the new generation of stadium headliners which will replace the old guard who are starting to fade out. This is an important fight for Benn as any loss at this stage of his career would set back his dreams of being aContinue reading “Conor Benn versus Chris van Heerden breakdown”

Leigh Wood versus Michael Conlan breakdown

This is an evenly matched fight between two featherweights who are effectively competing for who is the third or 4th best featherweight in the world. Leigh Wood fought at below European level for the vast majority of his career but put on a great performance in his last fight to dethrone Can Xu of hisContinue reading “Leigh Wood versus Michael Conlan breakdown”

Roman Gonzalez versus Julio Cesar Martinez breakdown

I’m looking forward to this fight a lot as I can’t see it being anything other than exciting. Roman Gonzalez has been at the top of the sport for more than a decade now and this win would further cement his already tremendous resume. Julio Cesar Martinez is a buzz saw who rarely shows anyContinue reading “Roman Gonzalez versus Julio Cesar Martinez breakdown”

Robeisy Ramirez versus Eric Donovan breakdown

This is a decent fight between two time gold medalist Ramirez and fringe European level Donovan. The latter’s career has been fairly unremarkable apart from his excellent performance versus Zelfa Barrett where up until he got caught he was out-boxing him with ease. It’s a shame we haven’t seen him back in a big fightContinue reading “Robeisy Ramirez versus Eric Donovan breakdown”

Josh Taylor versus Jack Catterall breakdown

Josh Taylor makes the first defence of his undisputed Super Lightweight world title today in Scotland. Taylor is a great southpaw who can fight comfortably on the inside or look for counters versus overreaching opponents on the outside. Jack Catterall is a respectable fighter but won’t offer anything that Taylor hasn’t seen before. He’s beenContinue reading “Josh Taylor versus Jack Catterall breakdown”

Frazer Clarke versus Jake Darnell is an embarrassment to the sport

Frazer Clarke, a well accomplished amateur who won bronze at the Tokyo Olympics, is making his professional debut. This doesn’t sound like anything out of the ordinary until you look into who Clarke is fighting and then wonder how this bout got sanctioned. Jake Darnell has never boxed in a professional ring and his onlyContinue reading “Frazer Clarke versus Jake Darnell is an embarrassment to the sport”

Emanuel Navarrete to fight Abraham Nova

WBO Featherweight world champion Emanuel Navarrete will make the third defence of his title versus the unbeaten Abraham Nova at some point in April. Nova has come into the WBO rankings in February after not being ranked before hand and not only that but hes all the way at number 2 despite never making theContinue reading “Emanuel Navarrete to fight Abraham Nova”

Carlos Cuadras versus Jesse Rodriguez Franco breakdown

This is a great fight between a tested veteran and a prospect who is seen as the next big thing at the lower weights. Carlos Cuadras has been in huge fights against names such as Roman Gonzalez and Juan Francisco Estrada. He’s probably on the decline at this stage of his career but he isContinue reading “Carlos Cuadras versus Jesse Rodriguez Franco breakdown”
