On Saturday night, inside of the O2 Arena in London, heavyweight contender Dillian Whyte scored a brutal 11th round knockout over rugged Dereck Chisora in a rematch of their 2016 thriller. A highlight reel left hook from Whyte ended what was a competitive matchup beforehand, and left Chisora floored and all but out.

Whyte (25-1, 18 KO’s) was ranked #1 by the WBC and WBO heading into the matchup, and now looks to have an inside track towards a rematch with IBF/WBA/WBO champion Anthony Joshua. Chisora (29-9, 21 KOs) was deducted two points in the contest, one for a low blow in the eighth and later for an elbow in the 11th, yet was ahead on two scorecards (95-94) at the time of the stoppage.

On Saturday, Jan. 19, four-division world champion Adrien “The Problem” Broner (33-3-1, 24 KO’s) will face off with eight-division titlist and current WBA welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao (60-7-2, 39 KO’s) inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV. On Tuesday afternoon, Broner hosted an open media workout inside of the famed 5th Street Gym in Miami, FL in advance of the big showdown.

Broner is surely being doubted by many ahead of the SHOWTIME pay per view collision with Pacquiao, and understands what it means to his career.

On Saturday night, Dec. 15, Mexican superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KO’s) easily dispatched former champion Rocky Fielding (27-2, 15 KO’s) on his way to collecting the WBA super middleweight title. The fight took place from the Madison Square Garden in New York and was showcased on the DAZN streaming app.

Canelo’s relentless body work proved to be too much, as he registered knockdowns in every round, two in the third and ultimately final round, before the contest was waved off. The fight was a mismatch on paper and Canelo did his part to prove odds makers correct.

This Friday night, inside of the American Bank Center in Corpus Christi, TX, once-beaten supermiddleweight contender Jesse “Hollywood” Hart will look for revenge vs. the division’s WBO champion, Gilberto “Zuro” Ramirez.

In September of last year, Ramirez (38-0, 25 KO’s) dropped Hart in the first round and went on to win a unanimous decision despite the Philadelphia fighter storming back to make things competitive. Hart knows he is likely going to need a career-defining performance to turn the tables and that’s what he is banking on.
