  • BookMaker.eu Unbeaten featherweight champion Chris Colbert will defend his WBA interim super featherweight belt on July 4th weekend. Colbert (15-0 with six knockouts) was originally slated to take on perpetual title contender Yuriorkis Gamboa over the holiday. Unfortunately, Gamboa had to bow out of the matchup just 10 days before the fight due to an injury suffered in training camp. Enter Tugstsogt Nyambayar. Nyambayar (12-1 with nine knockouts) has been itching for another title fight ever since losing to Gary Russell Jr. last February. His camp quickly came to terms with Colbert’s crew for the promotion to continue, and Nyambayar is out to prove himself. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu A chagrined Vasyl Lomachenko will make his return to the ring on Saturday, June 26, when he faces Masayoshi Nakatani in Las Vegas. Lomachenko (14-2 with 10 knockouts) was upset in a unification title fight by Teofimo Lopez last October, resulting in the Ukrainian lightweight losing all his belts. Nakatani (19-1 with 13 knockouts) suffered his only defeat at the hands of Lopez in July 2019, and he knows that a win over Lomachenko will likely result in a rematch with Lopez with titles on the line.... 

  • BookMaker.eu Two unbeaten boxers that are a combined 50-0 will meet at the end of June with the WBA super lightweight title on the line. Mario Barrios (26-0 with 17 knockouts) will be defending his belt for the second time, but he will face his toughest test yet in Gervonta Davis (24-0 with 23 knockouts). Davis will be moving up two weight classes for this title fight. Although Davis is the favorite per the boxing betting odds, Barrios is 4 ½ inches taller than the challenger, and his reach is 3 ½ inches lon... 

  • BookMaker.eu The unbeaten Jermall Charlo is looking to put a stamp on a holiday. Charlo was probably inspired by Canelo Alvarez scheduling fights on Cinco de Mayo when he announced his intention to box in his hometown and commemorate Juneteenth. Charlo (31-0 with 22 knockouts) will defend his WBC middleweight belt against Juan Macias Montiel on Saturday, June 19. Montiel (22-4-2 with 22 knockouts) packs a punch, and he will come out swinging. This WBC middleweight title fight will be aired on Showtime. The p... 

  • BookMaker.eu Although many expected Teofimo Lopez to face off with Vasyl Lomachenko in a rematch of their October fight, Lopez will instead face IBF mandatory challenger George Kambosos Jr. on June 19. Lopez (16-0 with 12 knockouts) is one of the most exciting young boxers in the sport today. That led to Triller bidding more than four times the amount that Top Rank was offering to air the fight. Kambosos (19-0 with 10 knockouts) is a worthy challenger, but boxing analysts don’t seem to be giving him much of ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Arguably the best pound-for-pound boxer in the world will defend his three straps in Las Vegas on June 19. Naoya Inoue (20-0 with 17 knockouts) isn’t a household name because it’s hard for lighter boxers to break through into the mainstream, but boxing aficionados know his name well. Inoue will take on Michael Dasmarinas (30-2-1 with 20 knockouts) in this title fight, and the unheralded Dasmarinas knows he can make a name for himself if he pulls off the upset. ESPN is the home for this Top Rank ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The most interesting fight of the three is the middle fight between Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and Anderson Silva. Chavez is a former middleweight champion, while Silva is one of the greatest MMA fighters of all-time. This stands to be more competitive than most exhibition fights as Silva has boxed twice before, and he knocked out 23 opponents as an MMA fighter. This promotion will be held in Guadalajara, Mexico, and it will be available through Fite PPV. It is slated to start at 9 p.m. ET.... 

  • BookMaker.eu One of the most talented young boxers in the sport today is out to win his second title in another weight class. Shakur Stevenson (15-0 with eight knockouts) claimed the WBO featherweight title in October 2019. Stevenson is now looking to win the WBO interim junior lightweight title, but Jeremiah Nakathila has other ideas. Nakathila (21-1 with 17 knockouts) has been one of the top junior lightweights in the world for the last few years.... 

  • BookMaker.eu It was only a matter of time before Jean Pascal and Badou Jack entered the ring once more. Pascal and Jack fought to a controversial split decision in November 2019, and the two light heavyweights have been circling each other for the last 18 months. That rematch will finally come in the first weekend of June with Pascal (35-6-1 with 20 knockouts) defending his WBA light heavyweight belt against Jack (23-3-3 with 13 knockouts). Pascal and Jack will have their rematch as the co-main event with the Floyd Mayweather and Logan Paul exhibition bout. This card will be available through Showtime PPV on Sunday, June 6, 2021. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Given the popularity of exhibition boxing among YouTube sensations and old boxing legends over the past year, it was only a matter of time before Floyd Mayweather returned to the ring. The greatest boxer of the last 25 years has finally decided the time is now. Mayweather will come out of retirement one last time (maybe) to take on Logan Paul. Mayweather will face Paul in an exhibition fight where there will be six three-minute rounds. It will headline a Showtime PPV card that will also feature ... 

  • BookMaker.eu Two of the best bantamweight boxers in the world will square off in Los Angeles on Memorial Day weekend when Nordine Oubaali defends his WBC bantamweight belt against Nonito Donaire. This will be the third title defense for Oubaali (17-0 with 12 knockouts), and this might be his toughest test yet. Donaire (40-6 with 26 knockouts) has won titles in four different weight classes over the last 14 years.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The WBC lightweight title will be on the line this Memorial Day weekend when Devin Haney defends his belt for the third time. Haney (25-0 with 15 knockouts) will take on veteran Jorge Linares in what might be Linares’ last title fight. Linares (47-5 with 29 knockouts) is closing in on two decades in boxing, and the former champion will be out to prove he still has it. Haney vs. Linares will take place on Saturday, May 29, 2021 at the Michelob Ultra Arena in Mandalay Bay on the Las Vegas Strip. T... 

  • BookMaker.eu The super lightweight division will have an undisputed champion after Jose Ramirez and Josh Taylor meet on Saturday, May 22. Ramirez (26-0 with 17 knockouts) currently holds the WBC and WBO titles, while Taylor (17-0 with 13 knockouts) holds the WBA, IBF, and The Ring belts. That has led to a lot of hype surrounding this fight, as one boxer will walk out of Sin City with an awful lot of bling. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu We will see two of the best super bantamweights in the division face off outside of Los Angeles in mid-May as Luis Nery defends his WBC super bantamweight title against Brandon Figueroa. This will be the first title defense for Nery (31-0 with 24 knockouts) since he won the strap against Aaron Alameda in Connecticut back in September. Figueroa (20-0-1 with 16 knockouts) won’t be an easy opponent though as he is currently the WBA secondary super bantamweight title.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The most marketable name in boxing is back for another Cinco de Mayo weekend fight. Although May 5 is smack dab in the middle of the work week in 2021, Canelo Alvarez has decided to have a big fight even though he last entered the ring a little more than two months ago. Alvarez (55-1-2 with 37 KOs) will face a much tougher opponent this time, as he takes on Billy Joe Saunders. Saunders (30-0 with 14 KOs) is the current WBO super middleweight champion. ... 

  • BookMaker.eu The first two weeks of May will be jam-packed for boxing fans. In addition to the traditional Canelo Alvarez fight for Cinco de Mayo, we will see two major cards highlighted by bouts between a former heavyweight champion and a title challenger. Joseph Parker will face Dereck Chisora in the first promotion on May 1, while Andy Ruiz Jr. will fight Chris Arreola in a promotion that night. Ruiz (33-2 with 22 knockouts) is a substantial favorite against Arreola (38-6-1 with 33 knockouts).... 

  • BookMaker.eu Boxing fans will finally see Dereck Chisora and Joseph Parker meet in the ring on the first of May. These two heavyweights were originally supposed to square off in late October 2019. However, Parker had to pull out of the bout after being bit by a spider during his training camp. Chisora (32-10 with 23 knockouts) knows he can’t afford another loss since he is 37 years old, while Parker (28-2 with 21 knockouts) might earn another title shot with a win.... 

  • BookMaker.eu The WBO featherweight belt will be up for grabs in central Florida on the last weekend of April. Emanuel Navarrete will defend his newly won belt for the first time against Christopher Diaz. Navarrete (32-1 with 27 knockouts) has a ton of power for a featherweight, so Diaz (26-2 with 16 knockouts) will have his hands full in his second major title challenge. This fight will take place on Saturday, April 24, 2021. The prelims will be broadcast on ESPN Plus at 6 p.m. ET before the main card gets u... 

  • BookMaker.eu Boxing has seen some fights turn into spectacles over the years, but the sport has never seen an event quite like this one. YouTube star Jake Paul will enter the ring against former MMA champion Ben Askren in the headline fight of a Triller Fight Club event that will also showcase Frank Mir, Antonio Tarver, and others. In a cross-promotion with the Triller app, there will be tons of musicians and bands giving performances too as part of the spectacle. Justin Bieber, The Black Keys, Diplo, Major ... 

  • BookMaker.eu We will see former WBC super welterweight champion Tony Harrison enter the ring for the first time since losing his title when he takes on Bryant Perrella. Harrison (28-3 with 21 knockouts) hasn’t entered the ring since losing his title to Jermell Charlo in December 2019. He is ready to get back at it and win back the belt, but he must first get past Perrella (17-3 with 14 knockouts).... 

  • BookMaker.eu The vacant WBO light heavyweight belt will be up for grabs the second weekend of April. Joe Smith Jr. (26-3 with 21 KOs) will take on Maxim Vlasov (45-3 with 26 KOs) for the strap on a Top Rank card. They were originally supposed to face off in Las Vegas on February 13, but that fight had to be pushed back after Vlasov contracted COVID. Both fighters have contended for major belts in the past, yet neither Smith nor Vlasov has claimed one at this juncture.... 

  • BookMaker.eu After multiple postponements, Jamel Herring will finally defend his WBO junior lightweight belt against Carl Frampton on Easter Weekend. This bout was originally supposed to take place in November, but it had to be moved back by two months after Herring developed some eye issues after his September fight with Jonathan Oquendo. COVID forced another postponement in January, and Frampton suffered a hand injury during training in late February to lead to two more delays.... 

  • BookMaker.eu We are finally going to see a rematch between Alexander Povetkin and Dillian Whyte on Saturday, March 27. This rematch was originally supposed to take place on November 21, 2020, but the match had to be postponed due to Povetkin testing positive for COVID-19. Eddie Hearn was hopeful to get these two heavyweights in the ring in Manchester on February 20 and then again on March 6, but neither date worked so he took the fight to Gibraltar where it now has the catchy title, “Rumble on the Rock”.... 

  • BookMaker.eu It’s been 17 months since light heavyweight champion Artur Beterbiev last entered the ring. Beterbiev was originally supposed to take on Meng Fanlong in China last March, but that bout was postponed due to COVID. Fanlong was replaced as the opponent in October when he couldn’t secure a visa, opening the way for Adam Deines to challenge for the title. This bout was originally supposed to take place on January 30, but it was pushed back after Beterbiev suffered a rib injury in training. It was mov... 

  • BookMaker.eu After almost a decade, we will finally see a rematch between Juan Francisco Estrada and Roman Gonzalez. These two squared off for the WBA light flyweight title in November 2012 in Los Angeles, and Gonzalez won a unanimous decision. Estrada (41-3 with 28 knockouts) will look to avenge that earlier defeat, while Gonzalez (50-2 with 41 knockouts) is out to win back one of the straps he lost a few years ago....
