Celebrity News: The first half of 2017 gave the fanatical big fights that will be talked about for the rest of the year, starting with the big fight between Anthony Joshua and Wladimir Klitschko who seem to be winning the race for the year, which awaits us for the second half, can be even more spectacular.
With duels at the table without being officially announced as the rematch between Leo Santa Cruz and Ábner Mares, the possible duel of Gervonta Davis and Orlando Salido and obviously waiting for the rival of Vasyl Lomachenko and Terence Crawford, it will already be worth to be aware of these combats.
This is a list of the 10 boxing matches you should not miss, whether it’s because of the competition that will be in the ring because the styles augur a day of fireworks or simply because that fight will have a meaning more than special for the sport.
1 – Manny Pacquiao vs. Jeff Horn, July 2, 2017
Manny Pacquiao has always been one of the men to follow in recent years and although this time he will fight in Australia against a little-known fighter like Jeff Horn, it will certainly be important to see how he looks to see what confrontations can come for him. There is the talk of Adrien Broner, Terence Crawford and Mikey Garcia for him, so he must certainly look great. Also, the fight goes on ESPN. Manny will expose the WBO Welter scepter.
2 – Miguel Berchelt vs. Takashi Miura, July 15, 2017
A real train crash will be what we will see at the Forum in Inglewood, California. For the styles, this fight promises a lot, because the Japanese Miura is a man who has no reverse and is a true kamikaze, only now will have a younger fighter, ready to war with boxing arguments more than interesting.
3 – Joe Smith vs. Sullivan Barrera, July 15, 2017
This fight could well be the main event any day but will join the Golden Boy in the Forum. Joe and his power of destruction will be put to the test by Barrera’s boxing and strength, who also believes he does not believe in anyone. The winner will be a natural candidate for Andre Ward or Adonis Stevenson.
4 – Mikey Garcia vs. Adrien Broner, July 29, 2017
Not every day you can see a three times champion against a four times champion. The world of boxing is able to recognize the talent, and so sometimes shows heavy blood, Broner is a talented fighter who at 140 pounds will be a very complicated obstacle for Garcia. The winner at the Barclays Center will give us a new star of international pugilism.
5 – Jarrett Hurd vs. Austin Trout, July 29, 2017
Among the fighters who are pushing hard in the 154-pound division is Jarrett Hurd, and seeing him before a fighter like Austin Trout who is usually more than competitive, it will be very interesting to see how the deck can be accommodated with Erislandy Lara, Miguel Cotto, Demetrius Andrade and Jermell Charlo and how much, being many of them with Al Haymon, can face.
6 – Shinsuke Yamanaka vs. Luis Nery, August 15, 2017
In Japan, this fight between these two unbeaten fighters is going to take place. Yamanaka, who is on a world champion record for a Japanese champion, will expose the WBC bantamweight scepter to one of Mexico’s most solid boxing prospects as Luis Nery, who will be very good at the weight, will have a great chance to prevent the feat of Yamanaka.
7 – Miguel Cotto vs. Yoshihiro Kamegai, August 26, 2017
A history against a kamikaze. There is no doubt that Cotto is one of the best Latino fighters in recent years, who has also announced his imminent retirement by the end of this year or mid-2018. With all his boxing, Miguel will be put to the test by a fighter like Kamegai who is accustomed to demanding his enemies and intends to take advantage of the long inactivity of the Puerto Rican.
8 – Roman ‘Chocolatito’ González vs Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, September 9, 2017
Two of the world’s best super flies will collide in the ring again. After a controversial ruling last March in which Román lost the undefeated, throne pound for pound and scepter Supermosca WBC, the Nicaraguan will come loaded to try to knock out the Thai Rungvisai that is a headache for anyone.
9 – Carlos Cuadras vs Juan Francisco Estrada, September 9, 2017
This is one of the best fights that can be given in the small divisions of boxing. Two good boxers, two fighters who also like to fajarse and who mainly look for the great fights, either to Naoya Inoue or Roman Gonzalez. The fight will be in California.
10 – Canelo Álvarez vs Gennady Golovkin, September 16, 2017
It is the most awaited combat by fans in the last two years. They will face each other at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in a compromise agreed to at Midweight, and will probably give us the new pound-for-pound king in competition with Andre Ward. Canelo’s boxing and Golovkin fort will sparks from the ring.
Floyd Mayweather vs. Conor McGregor, August 26, 2017
As a plus, out of this ranking and with the clarification that this may be more of a show than a good boxing match, that of Floyd Mayweather and the artemarcialist Conor McGregor may be somewhat entertaining. Simply and simply we will have to be aware that the competition will not be, at least on paper, as tough as in the lawsuits listed above, and that they can not expect a dramatic fight by having a master of defense and counter-coup like Mayweather with Mark Of 49-0 and a McGregor with knowledge of combat but that hardly will debut like professional boxer.
