Over the past two years, Lee Baxter Promotions events have become home to some of the best international talent to have fought in Ontario in recent memory.
Undefeated World Middleweight Champion GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN wants to make one thing clear. On Saturday, September 16, when he faces Canelo Alvaraez, Golovkin is walking into the ring at the T-Mobile Arena the same way he walked out of the ring at Madison Square Garden, in his last fight — wearing all his world championship belts.
Kemahl “Hitman” Russell (11-1, 9 KOs) made a triumphant return to the ring this week, landing a vicious one-punch knockout of Nigel Edwards (9-2-1, 5 KOs) in Kingston, Jamaica. The stoppage victory was part of a card for the Wray and Nephew Contender Series, which Russell himself won in 2015.
On Saturday, August 5, at 10 p.m. ET the next installment of Top Rank Boxing on ESPN will feature two-division world champion Vasyl Lomachenko defending his World Boxing Organization (WBO) junior lightweight world title against two-time world title challenger and Top-10 contender Miguel Marriaga.
Earlier today in Shanghai, China, unheralded Sho Kimura from Tokyo, Japan stunned China’s boxing superstar Zou Shiming via upset 11th round TKO. Kimura, who had never before fought anyone of real note (a number of his wins coming over fighters who had losing records) ripped the WBO flyweight crown from defending champ Shiming.
This Saturday night live on Showtime, Adrien Broner meets Mikey Garcia in the main event from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York. Even without a title on the line the stakes remain high based off the accomplishments of both men. Showtime will also be live-streaming the undercard via Facebook & Youtube, 3 fights in total including unbeaten heavyweight Jarrell ‘Big Baby’ Miller versus one-loss Gerald Washington.
Let’s start at the top of the bill with a very intriguing matchup between Mikey Garcia 36-0, (30KO’s) and Adrien Broner, who hasn’t lost a fight under the welterweight limit. In fact the weight of 140 pounds is a good item to focus on for two main reasons.
Nathan Gorman and Darryll Williams both claim victories, while Jake Haigh and Mark Heffron look to extend their unbeaten records
Hatton Boxing fighters Nathan Gorman and Darryll Williams have extended their unbeaten professional records after their latest fights.
On Monday of this week WBC heavyweight king Deontay Wilder reassured us all that his next fight is coming: “Never fear ….the return is near,” he wrote. While the following day, the unbeaten power puncher tweeted: “Only a matter of time, the return is near, I’ll be back, wait for it.”
But who, when and where will Wilder fight next? Last seen overcoming the perhaps better than expected challenge of an unbeaten Gerald Washington back in February – this fight being Wilder’s first since he’d endured the longest layoff of his pro career; since his July 2016 win over Chris Arreola – Wilder has seen his name put alongside a couple of potential next foes.
