WBO super featherweight world champion Vasyl Lomachenko told ES News that if highly anticipated fight between Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin and Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez finally happens, it will go full distance.
“It would be very interesting fight. And I think it will go full distance. It would be an exciting fight, because they both are aggressive fighters plus Alvarez throws more combinations. I think it would be interesting.” - said Vasyl Lomachenko.
WBC heavyweight world champion Deontay Wilder said that boxing needs trash-talkers like Tyson Fury or Shannon Briigs, because they make it more interesting.
“When it comes to those loud-mouthed guys, it is a lot more fun to shut them up in the ring! To get them out of there and knock them out. But me and Joshua, we are both a bit more respectful, treat people a little better. But at the end of the day, what you say or what you don’t say makes no difference… your fists do the talking.
Square Ring Promotions and Hitz Entertainment Corporation announced today that they have reached an agreement for the Fres Oquendo vs. Shannon Briggs fight for the WBA World Heavyweight Championship.
“We are really excited that we were able to reach an agreement with Kris Lawrence and Henry Rivalta of the Heavyweight Factory,” said John Wirt, CEO of Square Ring Promotions. “It was a long process and a difficult negotiation, but the good news is that Fres will now have the chance to finally win the WBA Heavyweight crown. I want to thank Gilberto Mendoza, George Martinez and everyone else at the WBA for this great opportunity.”
Anthony Joshua has admitted he is not impressed with the quality of Deontay Wilder's opponents and says boxing fans "want more" from the WBC champion.
Wilder, who is recovering from hand and bicep injuries, was forced to contend with a change of opponent as Washington came in as a replacement after Andrzej Wawrzyk failed a drug test.
WBC heavyweight champion Deonaty Wilder said to GQ Magazine that he has no doubts I his mind that he will beat IBF champion Anthony Joshua if Joshua comes as the winner from Klitschko fight.
“I’d beat him like I have beaten every other fighter. There is no secret to it. For me, every fighter has a game plan and every fighter thinks they see loop holes in their opponent’s defense that they can exploit. So when the time comes, we will look at Joshua and do what we gotta do. But with Joshua, I don’t think it would need anything special… I think it would be the basics.
