When will fight start and how can I watch it?

Billy Joe Saunders looks to keep momentum in his bid to secure a super fight in 2021 with his first fight since the Covid-19 pandemic, which cost him an opportunity against Canelo Alvarez.

The WBO super middleweight world champion remains unbeaten but after the pandemic postponed his fight, the Mexican superstar agreed to fight domestic rival Callum Smith, who owns the WBC title at 168 pounds.

British veteran Martin Murray is Saunders’ opponent at the SSE Arena this evening, with the pair supposed to have fought years ago but for an injury to Saunders.

Should Saunders impress, then Canelo may revisit a potential fight against him in 2021, though Murray is likely to throw everything at him in his final opportunity at this level from a great career that has seen the biggest prize prove illusive.

The exhibition bout will serve as a warm-up for Bjornsson’s highly-anticipated clash against fellow strongman Eddie Hall next September.

The 6’9 Icelander weighed in over 32 STONE when he set a world record for the deadlift back in May.

But he recently revealed he has dropped down to 26 stone with further cuts planned after realising his ambition to step into the boxing ring.

However, Northern Irish pro boxer Ward will still be giving up a hefty size advantage when he travels to Reykjavik

‘Buying it wasn’t worth it’

FORT WORTH, Texas — The Ferrari Errol Spence Jr. rolled and cartwheeled last year cost well over $275,000. The accident also nearly cost him his life and his career, but there is good news.

“I got my money back,” he told me. “I had great insurance for it.”

The welterweight fighter from DeSoto can say this now, not with a smile, but merely as a statement of fact.

He is ready for his first fight since he flipped his white Ferrari several times in crash at 3 a.m. in south Dallas on Oct. 10, 2019. How he walked away with non-life threatening injuries makes no sense.

Coaching can wait: Rondo plots future, but stays in present | Basketball

ATLANTA (AP) — Rajon Rondo is planning for a future in coaching.

Maybe he’ll get a shot as as a general manager.

Not that he’s ready to get started on those career goals just yet.

After capturing his second NBA championship ring with the Lakers, the 34-year-old Rondo has moved on to the youthful Atlanta Hawks, where he will serve as a mentor to budding superstar Trae Young while providing valuable minutes off the bench for one of the league’s more intriguing teams.

For the first time in his long career, Rondo is the oldest guy on the team.

“It’s kind of weird to look at the roster and I’m the oldest date on the sheet,” he said with a smile. “But it’s a natural fit as far as mentoring these young guys. So many great veterans helped me become the player I am today. It’s only right to give

Who is Kubrat Pulev, Anthony Joshua’s upcoming opponent?

On December 12th, British boxer Anthony Joshua will have his WBA (Super), IBO, WBO and IBF heavyweight titles on the line, as he comes up against Kubrat Pulev. The IBF mandatory challenger has been on the scene for some time, with the initial bout scheduled for 2017. With that one cancelled due to injury to Pulev, and the coronavirus pandemic since putting paid to their most recently scheduled bout in June of this year, fans will be anticipating this upcoming match-up. But who is ‘The Cobra’, and why is he massively disregarded in the latest Joshua – Pulev odds?

Who is Kubrat Pulev?

The 39-year-old hails from Sofia in Bulgaria and started boxing professionally in 2009, although was also an amateur from 2001. It was only a year later, in 2002, that Pulev won his first tournament – the Strandzha Cup – in his native

Ring City USA results: Adams, Ceballo, Yeritsyan pick up wins

Former title challenger Brandon Adams had to fight an opponent who came in on short notice, but the 31-year-old Californian took care of business, stopping Sonny Duversonne in the second round of their Ring City USA main event on NBC Sports Network.

Adams (22-3, 14 KO) looked pretty sharp in the opening round of the eight-round bout, then dug in with some left hooks, got Duversonne (11-3-2, 8 KO) in the corner, and just kept firing. Referee Jack Reiss urged Duversonne, 30, to get out of the corner, but when the Florida native didn’t and wasn’t throwing enough back, Reiss stopped the fight. Duversonne complained, but Reiss explained his position, and it was fair.

You have to feel for Duversonne a bit, though, because this is a guy who has stepped up and really gotten himself out there recently. He fought on Top Rank’s Oct. 9 card, losing to prospect

Recapping a great night of boxing; Tyson-Jones did not disappoint. Easily worth the money and I’d watch again.

Re Tyson-Jones

I loved every second of it. The whole card was great. The prelims were outstanding bouts. I had no idea Jake Paul and Nate Robinson were fighting. Like most I wanted Robinson to win that one but they both threw very crisp shots, clean, very good technique given this is not their sport. My only critique of the night would be the officiating. How many seconds was it before he allowed that fight to continue after the first knock down? I didn’t like how that was handled. I need to see it again. Did he still give him the eight count even after he got up, he never grabbed his gloves, did the chest rub, he just wasn’t demonstrative enough for me as an official to determine if a boxer can continue. Bit of a hindsight look at it given what happened seconds later I know but prior

Errol Spence Jr. vs. Danny Garcia fight: Shawn Porter previews bout between two men he has faced in the ring

It’s hard to imagine there will be a more interested spectator in Saturday’s welterweight title pay-per-view bout between unified champion Errol Spence Jr. and former two-division champion Danny Garcia than a man who has shared the ring with both and could be in line to face the winner.

In addition to being a two-time welterweight champion, Shawn Porter (31-3-1) has also evolved into an accomplished broadcaster and will be on the call at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, when the two men he split disputed decisions against square off (Fox PPV, 9 p.m. ET) for the IBF and WBC titles. 

“The biggest headline is who are we going to see in Errol Spence Jr. on Saturday night,” Porter told “Morning Kombat” on Wednesday in reference to a scary car crash last October that Spence was lucky to survive. But Porter then echoed a statement just as important when he said,

Mariah Bahe Navajo Boxer, Olympic Channel Documentary

Mariah Bahe may be soft spoken around people she doesn’t know, but she draws strength in the ring you can hear, see, and feel. The 16-year-old high school junior is the star of a 15-minute Olympic Channel documentary, Mariah: A Boxer’s Dream, that debuted on Dec. 3 and showcases Bahe’s skills as one of the country’s top junior boxers, ranked second at 95 pounds and fourth at 106. In the film, you’ll see her victory at the 2020 National Silver Gloves, marking her sixth national title.

Boxing runs in the family, starting with Bahe’s great grand-uncle, Lee Damon, who brought it back after his stint in the military. Her grandfather, John Calvin Bahe Sr., opened Damon-Bahe
