FAST FORWARD

Tonight, Saturday the 17th September this roller coaster of a month continues as we are in Dallas for the WBO light middleweight clash between Liam Smith and Saul Canelo Alvarez. This is a monster tie. With Brook having failed to beat Golovkin last week and Khan having failed to beat Canelo earlier this year, could this be third time lucky? Canelo has got the skill and the pedigree – does Beefy? Like many I am struggling to feel massively positive about his chances but somewhere in the back of my mind I think Smith has the skill. Like with Brook I might just hedge my bets and go for a Canelo stoppage or a controversial Smith win on points – Smith has already pleaded with the judges to be fair so perhaps that is where he sees his chances?

In Gdansk, Poland we have a WBO title fight as cruiserweights Krzyzsztof Glowacki and Oleksandr Usyk square off. None other than Tony Bellew says it shall be Glowacki and who am I to argue with an expert…

In the UK we have 4 fights in Blackpool and massive bills in York Hall with 15 contests and Manchester with 13.

Friday the 23rd September, in Corby there are 4 fights scheduled and now we have a further 5 contests in Essex.

FUTURE HISTORY

On Saturday the 24th September it gets global again as we have, in Manchester, Anthony Crolla v Jorge Linares for the WBA, WBC ‘diamond’ and Ring Magazine world lightweight titles. There are a couple of Commonwealth title fights as Isaac Lowe faces Tshifhiwa Munyai for the featherweight title and Callum Johnston faces Wilberforce Shihepo for the light heavyweight belt. Middleweights John Ryder and Jack Arnfield square off in a very decent fight for the WBA international title held by Ryder, a light heavyweight contest sees Hosea Burton face Fernando Castaneda whilst super lightweight Connor Benn is also on the bill.

In Germany that same night, Ovill MacKenzie takes on Marco Huck for the IBO cruiserweight title with Jamie Cox on the undercard.

In York Hall there are 19 fights, Walsall, 7, Solihull 5 and in Morpeth super lightweight Lewis Ritson is on the bill.

Sunday the 25th September has 10 fights in Newcastle before a busy week sees the return of the St Andrews Sporting Club on Thursday the 29th September to the Radisson Blu in Glasgow with welterweight Mike Towell in a final British title eliminator, light heavyweight Grant Quigley, welterweight Sam Ball and the debut of Martin Harkin.

On Friday the 30th the week rounds off with 5 fights in York hall, 7 fights in Hull and 4 fights in Sheffield.
