Miss anything the past couple days? Hey probably not, honestly, it was a holiday weekend. But here’s what we’ve had for you.
It’s Joshua-Ruiz fight week, so be prepared to get overwhelmed by that in the coming days. The TV schedule is up, with times for all the Joshua-Ruiz events plus more for the week. Common opponent Kevin Johnson isn’t giving a pick, but thinks it’ll be a good fight, and that Ruiz will surprise people. Ruiz says he’ll shock the world, and calls DAZN “Dan’s.”
Can Xu and Carlos Canizales retained their secondary WBA “world” titles at 126 and 108 on Sunday in China, both entertaining fights and good performances by the winners.
- Jamel Herring says his status as world champ hasn’t really sunk in just yet.
- Lewis Watson took a look at what could come next for Hughie Fury, won won on Saturday. Lewis also looked at what might come next (or will come next) for the UK’s seven world titleholders.
- I took a little for-kicks look back at London 2012 and the top male pro fighters (as of now) to come out of those Olympics.
- Erick De Leon will face Jason Sosa on Top Rank’s July 19 card, which is a fight I like and could really see going either way.
