12 laps, heavyweights
One of the most anticipated revenge of the year. Winning or losing is a beautiful thing when a starving athlete who has paid his dues but suffered a few setbacks has the opportunity to change his career and ultimately the direction of his life (literally) overnight. And that’s exactly what happened in the first fight between Robert Helenius and Adam Kownacki in March 2020.

Jared Anderson vs. Vladimir Tereshkin
8 laps, heavyweights
Tyson Fury’s dad called Anderson “The Next Big Thing” after his son.

“Tyson is out there all alone. Unless there is a born fighter, who comes out of nowhere with incredible talent, but I haven’t seen him yet. There is one – Jared Anderson He is an undefeated heavyweight with [promoter] Bob Arum, I believe he can be the next big thing when Tyson is gone. “

Jake Paul vs. Tyron Woodley

How will Lopez deal with Covid? Teofimo, of course, has just come out of his anger at boxing superstar Vasyl Lomachenko while Kambosos has just secured two SD wins against formidable opponents Mickey Bey and Lee Selby. The winner should only have big row fights.

September 11: Las Vegas (Triller Fight Club PPV)
Oscar De La Hoya vs Vitor Belfort, “special show”
He is back! At 48, how will the legend fare against a former light heavyweight MMA star who defeated Nate Marquardt, Dan Henderson, Michael Bisping, Rich Franklin, Randy Couture and Wanderlei Silva. He also shared the Octagon with Jon Jones, Chuck Liddell, Tito Ortiz, Alistair Overeem, Chris Weidman and Anderson Silva.

Friday, September 24, 2021: Reed Arena, College Station, Texas, USA (UFC Fight Pass)
Isaac Munoz Gutierrez vs. Dominick Guinn
10 laps, heavyweights
Isaac Munoz Gutierrez is 12-0-1, 10 KOs and Guinn, 46, represents a breakthrough in the competition. And if the former were victorious, he would join quality fighters such as Barrett, James Toney, Junior Fa, Artur Szpilka, Hughie Fury, Tomasz Adamek, Amir Mansour and Tony Thompson who defeated Guinn. A win for Gutierrez would put him in good company while an upset from Guinn would likely position him for a bigger and more lucrative opportunity in the future.

Saturday September 18: TBA (TBA)
Canelo Alvarez v TBA
12 rounds, for Canelo’s WBC, WBA and WBO super middleweight titles

September 25, 2021: United Kingdom
Anthony Joshua vs. Oleksandr Usyk Combat details
12 rounds, for Joshua’s WBA / WBO / IBF heavyweight titles
For the casual fans who don’t know Usyk, he’s in the same league as Joshua, Wilder, and Fury. He’s a former undisputed cruiserweight champion with speed and tons of skill and could derail an immediate Joshua vs Fury showdown.

Saturday October 23: TBC, United States (ESPN + / ESPN)
Terence Crawford vs. José Zepeda
12 rounds, for Crawford’s WBO welterweight title
