Teraji’s ambition though was more naked than his father’s ever was and in just his twelfth fight he met an experienced, tough Mexican in Ganigan Lopez, probably the two things at the very top of the list marked “things to avoid” for light-flyweight prospects. Peak Ranking: 3 Record for the Decade: 18-5 Ranked For: 27% of the decade. Davis' power is the most effective brand-building tool that any young boxer has, and he can call his shot on what he wants because people will tune in regardless. Davis, 24, received high praise for the spectacular one-punch KO from all over the world, including the likes of NBA superstar LeBron James, UFC megastar Conor McGregor and many other celebrities. It was disappointing to see Prograis miss weight by 1.5 pounds, which he blamed on the yearlong layoff. This might make his sitting at three questionable. Former undisputed cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk continued his march toward challenging for a heavyweight title by outworking veteran contender Derek Chisora over 12 rounds in the main event of a Matchroom Boxing card at Wembley Arena in London.

Looking ahead, the fight to make for next year is the one that was supposed to take place on April 25. Not only did he perform well, but Inoue also got in some quality rounds in which he was able to get more and more comfortable inside that ring. Marshall increased the tempo in the fourth round and began circling to the right and left while punching and creating angles for Rankin’s counters. Gervonta Davis and Leo Santa Cruz seemed to be on even footing in their battle for titles at both 130 and 135 pounds in San Antonio, Texas, until a single uppercut from Davis knocked Santa Cruz out in a flash. Maybe some monsters are real after all. "I didn't even see him going up that heavy, and he did that. It's time to see that Maurice Hooker bout that was delayed or have him square off with Mario Barrios, who also scored a TKO Saturday in San Antonio. Any one of them would have been a valid inclusion, although if it hadn’t been Hernandez it would, for me, have been Yu Kimara. That’s incredibly high praise, and something that can’t be argued against at this point in his career.

Inoue is already a pound-for-pound elite superstar. That, or he just needs to stop surrounding himself with the types of people who lead him down these dangerous and ridiculous ways of thinking.

Naoya Inoue fought exactly four times at 108lbs, excluding his debut; worse, two of those combats were wasted on two fighters unqualified to share the ring with him, even at what was an early stage of his career. It was a performance of maturity and authority from a fighter who was still inexperienced.

Hernandez found his way inside where Baas was willing to entertain him, to his great detriment and the chief cause of his being rescued by the referee and doctor in ten rounds.

But it also opened up Ganigan’s body for his own right hand. Real or not: Canelo-GGG III in 2021? Floyd Mayweather Jr. is the latest voice to criticize the growing number of championships in boxing. 3. Inoue quickly established his boxing mastery and overall physical superiority over Moloney who was stubbornly resistant to succumbing to the assaults. Most of the fight was fought inside where Skelly took advantage by slipping under Timlin’s blows and then countered with lefts up the middle between the guard. This means you may occasionally find yourself surrounded by lists of names and rankings but I promise it is necessary to bring clarity, which is what this series is about. Steve Kim: Saturday night's performance was a solid outing against a legitimate contender in Moloney. Segura was savage and brilliant, walking the dancer down, scowling, invincible, brutal. Juan Francisco Estrada, oddly enough, was not ranked at light-flyweight at the time he and Roman fought but their fight was a generational one between present and future pound-for-pounders at their physical peaks. Below, there is a jumble of men who have met one another and have met one another’s conqueror in an ill-stitched mishmash of clues and hints as to superiority. England’s Savannah Marshall slowly and deliberately dissected Scotland’s Hannah Rankin to win the vacant WBO middleweight world title by stoppage on Saturday. It was his fourth defense of the bantamweight title. Wolfe: It was electric. “Boxing is a very, very brutal sport. Here was a learning fight and one that bore immediate fruit in the form of that knockout of Lopez. Melindo’s left hand was fire and it was absolutely dialed in to Yaegashi’s face from the first bell. The WBA has "super" versions of its belt, one of which is held by Davis (23-0, 22 KOs) heading into his fight against Santa Cruz (37-1, 19 KOs).

“He’s having a well-earned bit of rest now, “I’m going over there because if I can see one thing, and pick up just one thing that I didn’t see and haven’t seen while watching hours upon hours upon hours of him, then it’s worth it.”. Alvarez beat Sergey Kovalev in Las Vegas last year to take home the WBO light-heavyweight title. Cameron Wolfe: Next up is to enjoy the elevator ride up to boxing stardom -- and maybe more -- because that KO against a somehow underrated four-division champion earned him a new group of fans. He has three key wins that need to be examined and each is marked by a question of one kind or another. “I think I make more doing that than most fighters make fighting.”. But against former world champion Rankin, the tall power-hitting British fighter took her time in examining the Scottish fighter’s style and then simply went to work.

Can Tyson KO Jones?

Theirs was a stiff contest, clearly won by Naoya but far from one-sided. Heck, Munguia even still appears to be growing into his frame. But I’m not sure that’s a good thing, and I’m equally not able to understand how any regular fight fan out there was supposed to keep up with everything all at once. The scores were 100-88 twice and 99-89 for Mayer.

It was a gutsy performance by Hubmayer who is originally from Germany. The show promoted by Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing at London’s Wembley Arena with no fans in attendance was unusual in that half of the six fights were between women. talkSPORT.com rounds up the best and latest news from the world of boxing…. Taguchi’s iron jaw and technical excellence had yet to be fully recognised and realised but in truth, he was well on his way and that meant Naoya had marched straight into one of the best 108lb men of his generation. With his latest comments, Mayweather has joined the growing group of voices concerned about where things are heading. Tyson Fury will not be in attendance for Deontay Wilder’s rematch with Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas on Saturday night.

You have reached ESPN's Australian edition. Peak Ranking: 1 Record for the Decade: 17-0 Ranked For: 26% of the decade. Beating an opponent 38 pounds heavier also proved that Usyk can beat bigger opponents, but he will have to show more than what he did against Chisora if he is to beat the likes of WBC champion Tyson Fury, WBA-IBF-WBO king Anthony Joshua or former WBC titleholder Deontay Wilder. In truth, though, 108lbs was where he belonged, something he proved after the disaster against Roman Gonzalez by weighing in comfortably at 107.5lbs against Pedro Guevara – to whom he also lost. Naoya and Roman staged forays into the 108lb division and departed for other divisions. After menacing Yaegashi around the ring with his left hand for ninety seconds, Melindo catches his man with a gorgeous left hook counter that sends Yaegashi stumbling and down; bringing him on and then driving him back after he rose, Melindo then dropped him again with the left, this time an uppercut; with all his experience, Yaegashi somehow did not know to run and after surviving a right uppercut double left hook combo, he was pierced by the Melindo jab and sent down for a third and final time by a cameo from the right hand. There are two reasons we find him in the top five. Jared Anderson (7-0, 7 KOs) needed only 2:46 of the first round to knock out Luis Pena (6-2) in a heavyweight fight. What has landed the immortal Roman Gonzalez at #2? Though not every blow landed, occasionally the left or right would connect. In the rematch, he produced a stunning adjustment. As to those wins, the second of them is relatively unimpressive in that it is Ramon Garcia Hirales, and arguably not the prime version. Covering combat sports is my full-time job, yet there seemed to be no way for even someone like me, who wanted to watch all the fights, had all the required cable packages and subscription services, and possessed the vested financial interest to do it could actually pull it off in real-time.
