There are a few boxing fans on here amongst all the veggies, cupboard dwellers and plastic femininsts, right? Quite a few decent fights coming up soon...
Ginger George Groves fight with Kenny Anderson this Friday called off due to 'injury', but really because Groves has been offered a world title shot, quite probably against Robert Stieglitz. Extremely premature.
Kell Brook v Matthew Hatton this weekend. Very exciting, but i'm not sure it'll be a great mix of styles given that, well, Hatton doesn't have any, and Brook can look unremarkable against durable opponents. Lee Purdy and Carl Frampton both on the undercard.
Sergio Martinez v Matthew Macklin on St Pad's Day. Macklin's good value, but not world class. Can see another brave but ultimately unsuccessful title attempt, really.
Sounds like neither Derek Chisora nor David Haye will be fighting anyone any time in the near future. Probably for the best.
Audrey Harrison's latest embarrassing comeback delayed.
Other big fights due:
- Bernard Hopkins v Chad Dawson rematch. Meh.
- Floyd v Cotto (yes, please)
- Saul Alvrez v Shane Mosley
- Froch v Bute (probably at the City Ground)
- Manny v Tim Bradley
- Berto v Ortiz
Anyone? No. Okay then.
