Vasyl “Hi-Tech” Lomachenko takes on Nicholas “Axe-Man” Walters as Lomachenko makes the 1st defense of his WBO World Super Featherweight title which he won 5 months ago by blowing out Roman Martinez with a beautiful combination. Going into the fight, Lomachenko and Walters had records of 6(4)-1 and 26(21)-0-1. In November 2012, Walters won the vacant WBA World Featherweight title via TKO7 over Daulis Prescott and have since made 4 successful defenses from November 2013 to June 2015 notably against Vic Darchinyan and Nonito Donaire. In November 2015, he takes on “El Canito” Jason Sosa in a non title bout. Despite the fact that Walters dominated the entire bout, winning just about every round the outcome was a highly controversial draw. Max Kellerman and Dan Rafael both scored it 100-90 and Harold Lederman had it 99-9 for the Axe-Man. Walters’ next bout would be against the Ukrainian superstar Vasyl Lomachenko. In June 2014, Lomachenko outpointed Gary Russell Jr. to win the vacant WBO World Featherweight title and made history by tying with Saensak Muangsurin; winning a world title in his 3rd professional bout. From November 2014 to 2015, Lomachenko defended the title 3 times against Suriya Tatakhun, Gamalier Rodriguez and Romulo Koasicha. In June 2016, Vasyl challenges Roman Martinez for the WBO World Super Featherweight Championship; he dominated Martinez through the 1st four rounds before finishing him a spectacular 2 punch combination in the 5th round. With this win, Lomachenko becomes World Champion in 2 weight classes in only 7 professional fights. His 1st defense would be against the undefeated knockout artist Nicholas Walters. In a dazzling performance, Lomachenko dominated Walters through 7 rounds. At the end of the 7th, Walters returned to his corner and walked up to referee Toney Weeks and twice expressed his desire to discontinue resulting in an RTD7 win for Lomachenko. Walters suffers his 1st professional loss. According to Punch Stats, Lomachenko landed more than twice as many punches as Walters.

Undefeated Unified Middleweight Champion, the powerhouse Gennady “GGG” Golovkin defends his IBO, IBF and WBC Middleweight titles against the highly skilled reigning IBF World Welterweight Champion Kell “Special K” Brook. Going into the fight, both fighters were undefeated; Golovkin was 35(33)-0 while Brook was 36(25)-0. Kell Brook moved up 2 weight divisions from Welterweight to face Golovkin, in a move inspired by his fellow Briton Amir Khan who moved up to take on Canelo Alvarez earlier in the year, challenging for the WBC, The Ring and Lineal Middleweight titles. There were a few other instances in the past where a Welterweight moves up to fight a reigning World Middleweight Champion; 1) Mike Twin Sullivan vs Stanley Ketchel (1908) 2) Mickey Walker vs Harry Greb (1925) 3) Henry Armstrong vs Cerefino Garcia (1938) 4) Kid Gavilan vs Carl Bobo Olsen (1954) 5) Carmen Basilio vs Sugar Ray Robinson (1957) 6) Emile Griffith vs Dick Tiger (1966) 7) Emile Griffith vs Carlos Monzon (1971) 8) Jose Napoles vs Carlos Monzon (1974) 9) Thomas Hearns vs Marvin Hagler (1984) 10) Sugar Ray Leonard vs Marvin Hagler (1987) Note that some of these bouts in the list had rematches as well - No. 3, 5, 6 & 7. More recent examples would be Miguel Cotto vs Sergio Martinez (2014) and of course, Canelo Alvarez vs Amir Khan (2016). Thus, in the year 2016 Brook was the 2nd British fighter to move up 2 divisions to challenge for a World Middleweight title. Both Brook and Khan were highly praised for their courageous moves. Despite being the naturally smaller fighter, Brook more than gave a good account of himself against the powerful GGG and had his share of moments by landing significant blows throughout the fight (notably in the 2nd round) despite being ultimately overwhelmed by the bigger, stronger Golovkin. Kell Brook’s right eye was already swollen in the first round from a GGG left hook, but in just about every instance that he was hurt, Special K comes back with his own rallies. Brook had some of his best moments in the 2nd and 3rd rounds where he landed a number of clean shots and combinations that shook GGG. And as a whole, it was an exciting fight with both fighters having their share of great moments. It is interesting to note that Brook gave Golovkin a surprisingly hard fight and landed many clean shots on GGG. The undefeated IBF Welterweight World champion had probably given Golovkin his hardest fight since Martin Murray in 2015. However in March 2017, Daniel Jacobs became first fighter in nearly 9 years to last the distance against Golovkin en route to losing a disputed UD. Jacobs surpassed Brooks in terms of being Golovkin’s hardest fight as he took the Middleweight Marauder to the final bell. Since June 2008, all 23 of GGG’s opponents have been knocked out. 4 months ago in May 2016, Amir Khan jumped 2 weight classes and put up a great effort against Canelo Alvarez using his amazing speed and boxing skills. But he ultimately succumbed to the greater power and natural size advantage of Alvarez, who finished him in the 6th round with a thunderous right hand named Knockout of the Year 2016 by Ring Magazine. On September 16th 2017, the Ultimate Middleweight Fight between Gennady Golovkin and Canelo Alvarez will finally take place after a number of failed negotiations which included Canelo’s decision to vacate the WBC Middleweight strap in May 2016 when GGG was his mandatory. The WBC proceeded to award its title to GGG. All of Golovkin’s belts - IBO, IBF, WBA & WBC World Middleweight Titles will be on the line. In Canelo’s last fight, he dominated fellow Mexican Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. en route to a lopsided UD victory. For GGG, he won a disputed UD against “The Miracle Man” Daniel Jacobs, maintaining his undefeated record. Golovkin-Alvarez is definitely one of the most anticipated fights in recent years and potentially one of the best fights as well as a candidate for Fight of the Year in 2017! Who do you think wins? Will Canelo put a dent into GGG’s undefeated record or will Golovkin hand the Mexican superstar his 2nd defeat since his one sided loss to defensive wizard Floyd Mayweather Jr. back in September 2013?

In the finale of their legendary rivalry, Manny Pacquiao aka “Pacman” and “Dinamita” Juan Manuel Marquez would settle the score once and for all in “Fight of the Decade” to close the chapter of their historic series of fights. And for the 1st time in 4 fights, no world titles were on the line. Pacquiao was ranked the No. 2 P4P by Ring Magazine, while Marquez was ranked No. 6 by the same publication. Prefight records; Pacquiao 54(38)-9-2, Marquez 54(39)-6-1. Highlights of Pacquiao-Marquez I, II & III; 3rd bout - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1-2uezwqOY 2nd bout - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TmziMF09_7k 1st bout - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qACg-6vK0u8 Pacquiao’s notable wins up to this point include Chatchai Sasakul, Jorge Eliecer Julio, Lehlo Ledwaba, Jorge Solis, Oscar Larios, Hector Velazquez, David Diaz, Oscar De La Hoya, Shane Mosley, Ricky Hatton, Joshua Clottey, Antonio Margarito, Miguel Cotto, Juan Manuel Marquez (2x), Erik Morales (2x) & Marco Antonio Barrera (2x) while Marquez had victories over meaningful oppositions in Alfred Kotey, Agapito Sanchez, Daniel Jimenez, Manuel Medina, Robbie Peden, Derrick Gainer, Victor Polo, Michael Katsidis, Rocky Juarez, Marco Antonio Barrera, Joel Casamayor, Orlando Salido & Juan Diaz (2x). The first 2 rounds were highly competitive with 1 man arguably winning a round each. However, in the 3rd round a huge shocker occurred when Marquez knocked Pacquiao down with a thunderous right hand! It was the first time in 39 rounds of their rivalry that Pacquiao was floored, and Pacquiao was last knocked down (officially) 13 years ago in 1999 against Medgoen Singsurat in a WBC Flyweight Championship fight. While Marco Antonio Barrera and Shane Mosley were both awarded a knockdown of Pacquiao each in 2003 and 2011 respectively, but neither were legitimate as shown in replays. In the 5th round, Pacquiao would even up the score with his patented straight left hand and proceeded to hurt Marquez badly but a game Marquez fought back with unbelievable courage in one of the best rounds of 2012! At the end of the round, Marquez was a bloody mess with Pacquiao ahead 47-46 in all 3 scorecards. In the 6th frame, Pacquiao hurt Marquez again; landing many power shots but as the round came to a close, Pacquiao while cornering Marquez recklessly lunged forward attempting to land his left hand shot;Marquez seized the opportunity to counter with his patented right hand with perfect precision and timing - just as Pacquiao was moving towards Marquez and caught him flush. Pacquiao was out cold on the canvas as Kenny Bayless stopped the fight without counting. For the first time in 4 bouts, a winner was crowned with no disputes or controversies. This fight received the following accolades by Ring Magazine; 1) Round of the Year (Round 5) 2) Fight of the Year 3) Fighter of the Year (Juan Manuel Marquez) 4) Knockout of the Year Hope you guys like this highlight of this explosive finale to one of boxing’s greatest series of fights, and be sure to subscribe!

July 23rd, 2016. Two undefeated top Light Welterweights; Terence Crawford and “The Iceman” Viktor Postol met on this day as Crawford makes the 3rd defense of his WBO Light Welterweight Title while Postol’s attempt to retain his WBC strap with his 1st defense. Additionally , the vacant The Ring Light Welterweight Title is also on the line.
Both fighters came into the fight with an unblemished record of 28-0.
In April 2015, Crawford beat Thomas Dulorme via TKO6 to bag the WBO Light Welterweight Title and made two successful defenses against Hank Lundy & Dierry Jean.
In October 2015, Postol scored a KO10 victory over power punching Lucas Matthysse to win the WBC strap and Crawford is set to be his 1st title defense.
Going into the fight, Crawford had notable victories over Thomas Dulorme, Hank Lundy, Dierry Jean, Ricky Burns, Breidis Prescott, Raymundo Beltrán & Yuriorkis Gamboa. On the other hand, Postol hold meaningful wins against Hank Lundy, DeMarcus Corley & Lucas Matthysse.
Freddie Roach believed that Crawford’s stance switching will not trouble Postol as Postol was Manny Pacquiao’s sparring partner and according to Roach, he sparred so often with Pacquiao that he had gotten accustomed to dealing with the southpaw stance.
As the fight begins, Crawford started off in the orthodox stance but after 20 seconds he switched to southpaw and from the on he never revert back to orthodox. The fight was pretty even for the first four rounds before the momentum switched in Crawford’s favor in the 5th frame.
Crawford scored a knockdown within opening seconds of the 5th, and then another knockdown in the middle of the round. From then on, Crawford proceeded to dominate the fight and win every other round using lateral movements with an impeccable defense whilst counter punching effectively.
It is the first and second time that Postol had tasted the canvas in his pro career.
In the 8th round, Postol was almost down again when he got knocked off balance from a Crawford right hook. In the 11th round, Postol lost a point for excessively hitting behind the head.
Postol would occasionally land good right hands to the head and body but was not busy nor effective enough to make a difference. In the 9th round, Postol literally landed only one punch. Postol rallied in the last two rounds but it was too late as Crawford won a lopsided UD.
Crawford remains undefeated today with a record of 32(23)-0.
Enjoy this highlight of one of Terence Crawford’s best performances and remember to subscribe! Keep punching guys!
