Boxing in 2020 has come and gone.

This past October, the boxing world mourned the loss of a very courageous and inspiring individual in Patrick Day.

During his short time on earth, Day accomplished a lot and inspired many. Day, a native of Freeport, New York, was both a decorated amateur, as well as a fearless professional who constantly challenged himself in the ring.

On November 2, three-division world champion Canelo Alvarez will rise in weight to challenge WBO light heavyweight champion Sergey Kovalev. The fight is set to take place from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, NV, with DAZN streaming the contest.

Alvarez (52-1-2, 35 KO’s) and Kovalev (34-3-1, 29 KO’s) both bring different qualities into the ring. Alvarez appears to be improving year by year and he is one of the best body punchers in the sport. Kovalev is 36 years old and appears to be on the downside a bit, but he is still dangerous at all times.

There can be more to meets the eye when you really get to know Marcus Willis.

I’ve been familiar with Willis’ career for several years now and have even crossed paths with him in the past down in Florida, while also being present for one of his biggest victories, when he beat James De La Rosa in Las Vegas in April of 2013.

On Tuesday afternoon, Nov. 6, we linked up with junior middleweight veteran “Magic” Marcus Willis inside of his personal gym, Team Willis Boxing and Family Fitness, in Fort Myers, FL. Willis (18-6-2, 5 KO’s) is the type of fighter whose record isn’t truly indicative of the kind of skill and ability he possesses. Several of his losses have been questionable decisions that could easily have went in his favor.

Yet, Willis still continues to fight on and discussed with us what he has been up to. It was about nine years ago when we crossed paths with Willis down in Florida, as we were introduced to him and his brother Quinton, also a fighter, through former lightweight champion Nate “Galaxxy Warrior” Campbell.
