First 100 Days of Boxing 2022 Preview

By Chris Carlson - 01/14/2022 - Comments

So far, so (pretty) good as far as judging what the first 100 days or so will bring in 2022 on the boxing schedule. Joe Smith Jr.’s opponent Callum Johnson was pulled from the fight, so I figured now was the time to make a list of fights I’m looking forward to in some form or fashion.

Most of these bouts have already been announced, while some are all but done. I made three categories in no order and then added several fights that have been rumored some heavily. And yes, I did go a little past 100 days for those counting at home.

Crossroads or Mid-Level-Ish

-Jessie Vargas vs. Liam Smith,
-Daniel Jacobs vs. John Ryder
-Josh Warrington vs. Kiko Martinez
-Keith Thurman vs. Mario Barrios
