All posts for the month June, 2017

So far, 2017 has been a great year for the sport of boxing. A lot of super-fights are happening or going to happen: Kovalev Vs. Jacobs one and two, Canelo Vs. Golovkin, Mayweather Vs. McGregor and many more. There have also been the fair share of bouts that weren’t supposed to be all that good that turned out to be great on an all time level like the Joshua Vs. Klitschko bout almost two months ago. The best part is that the most promising bouts have yet to happen.
As we’ve said, there have already been some great fights so far this year. One was Gennady Golovkin Vs. Daniel Jacobs. Triple G fights have always been entertaining up to this point because he always knocked out his opponents for the better part of a decade but, finally, this was not the case. Not only did Jacobs avoid getting knocked out, many feel as though he won the fight. Triple G was declared the winner via unanimous decision but many feel as though this was done in order to set up the super-fight with Canelo because the fight really could have gone either way.
Another incredible bout in 2017 was Anthony Joshua Vs. Wladimir Klitschko – an all time great heavy weight bout. Both fighters stood in the ring and traded explosive and heavy shots. Then Klitschko got knocked down twice late in the fight to secure the victory for Joshua. Many agree that this fight was the best heavyweight fight in the past two decades.
Then, of course, we have the promise of some great upcoming fights to round out an all time great year in boxing in 2017. First up, we have Sergei Kovalev squaring back off with Daniels Jacobs for the much anticipated re-match after Jacobs shocked the world and beat Kovalev in a decision just a couple months back. Then in September, you have the fight many have been waiting for and rooting for for over two years – Canelo Vs. Golovkin. This fight has the potential to be a fight for the ages with two of the biggest names, possibly the biggest with the exception of Floyd Mayweather, standing toe to toe. Then, of course, you have the seemingly good possibility of the super-fight between Mayweather and Conor McGregor in November. It’s certainly shaping up, so far to be a year to remember.
