Boxing: November is still big

By Olu Allen

After Fury’s destruction of Wilder, which certainly is in category of big-time boxing ever, as does Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez’s history making defeat of Caleb Plant for all four of the governing body’s world titles in Las Vegas, Nevada.

One will be tempted to conclude that after such gargantuan fights other bouts tends to be a little lull. A boxing hangover, so to speak.

But boxing fans can now be prepared for a sweet November. As it is still big as the boxing world. Here are some spicy boxing bouts to look ahead to:

November 13, Anaheim, USA:

Jaime Munguia vs Gabe Rosado.

Rosado is a well-known name in the boxing world, but despite the fact that he has challenged for a world title in the past and is coming off an emphatic knockout victory in his last fight, it’s hard to ignore that Rosado is ten years Munguia’s senior and far more shopworn from a career that has seen him amass thirteen losses.

Prediction: Munguia TKO.

November 13, Sheffield, England:

Kid Galahad vs Kiko Martinez, IBF World Featherweight Championship.

Kiko Martinez has given boxing fans many exciting nights, it certainly feels like this latest world-title tilt may just be a bridge too far. Martinez will likely try and makes things uncomfortable early on for Galahad, but most recently Galahad is a bit of a Rolls Royce boxer in many ways. He oozes class in the way he moves around the ring and seems to be so efficient in finding the target with his shots without ever looking like he’s exerting too much energy.

Prediction: Galahad KO.

November 19, New Hampshire, USA:

Demetrius Andrade vs. Jason Quigley, WBO World Middleweight Championship.

This is a fight has been ignored and groaned at in equal measure. However, this match-up certainly isn’t short on intrigue and could end up surprising quite a few people. This fight should be really interesting.

Prediction: Quigley PTS.

November 20, Las Vegas, USA:

Terence Crawford vs. Shawn Porter, WBO World Welterweight Championship.

This is a big-time boxing. That type of fights you should have in mind. Ever since the mercurial Terence Crawford has stepped up to welterweight, the biggest doubt is that he has not given some defining victories. He is against a true elite of welterweight, Shawn Porter, a boxer that has been a world champion himself.

Prediction: Crawford UD.

November 27, New York, USA:

Teofimo Lopez vs. George Kambosos Jr, WBO, IBF, WBA World Lightweight Championships.

This fight has been delayed ever since it was announced. From the fiasco with Triller winning the purse bid only to prove how much of a basket case outfit they are in repeatedly botching getting this fight on to Lopez’s positive COVID-19 test, which further delayed proceedings. Alas, the fight’s build-up and day is here. The beautiful twist however is that it has mostly been about who the champion will fight afterwards.

Prediction: Lopez KO.

Binge on great November fights. Ciao…
