The Weekend of Boxing Action, Here and Abroad

The Weekend of Boxing Action, Here and Abroad

Remember you can join in the debate with us on Twitter here, get more action and info from Andy Clarke in his video blog 4 Corners of Truth here and get in on the conversation with us at our new Facebook page here. No excuses then.

FAST FORWARD

Tonight there is action up and down the country as we see 6 fights in Portsmouth, 8 fights in Walsall and 7 fights in Solihull…

Tomorrow, Sunday the 9th July provides us with lightweight Lewis Ritson against Nathan Hardy and super featherweight Martin Ward against Reynaldo Cajina. Both should make it through the night and it is Ritson I am most interested in. I saw Ritson on a Lock, Stock bill that was a showcase for his boxing ability and he has plenty. Ward has lots more to give in his division and this ought to be a decent warm up for better things to come.

The big event for the weekend is after the weekend and live on box nation. In Ekaterinburg, Russia on Monday the 11th July, all eyes turn east for the WBO, IBF and WBA light heavyweight title fight between Sergey Kovalev and Isaac Chilemba. I have the Krusher down as the most likely to win this though Chilemba, after his showing against Tony Bellew – twice – is a very hardy opponent. IT should go the distance as long as Chilemba can avoid the Krush but I reckon a home win is definitely on the cards

FUTURE HISTORY

Friday 15th July sees heavyweight Sam Sexton, a possible British title opponent for somebody in against an unknown opponent in Norwich.

Saturday the 16th July is a busy, busy night. The big event is in Cardiff where Frank Warren brings us some heavy action as super welterweights Liam Williams and Gary Corcoran scrap over the Commonwealth and British titles, lightweights Terry Flanagan and Mzonke Fana battle over the WBO belt currently round Flanagan’s waist, Guillermo Rigondeaux, the man no one wants to box is up against James Dickens for the WBA super, super bantamweight belt, middleweights Tommy Langford and Ronny Gabel are in the ring for the WBO intercontinental middleweight title, welterweight Bradley Skeete goes for the WBO European welterweight title against Alexandre Lepelley in an all action night of terrific matches.

As well as all that, domestically we have 7 fights in Birmingham, 19 fights in York Hall, lightweight Joe Murray is back in action in Manchester, 7 fights in Scunthorpe and another 7 in London.

In Birmingham, the USA it is also the WBC heavyweight title fight between Deontay Wilder and Chris Arreola.
