Boxing will continue in 2021. After a difficult 2020, many stars either do not participate in the competition or only participate in one competition. In the new year, a few boxers have achieved great success.
Look at the king of British pounds himself, Canelo Alvarez (Canelo Alvarez). The Mexican superstar has scored two knockout games, easily blocked Avni Yildirim in February, and then blocked Billy Joe Saunders again in May.
When WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas defeated the legendary Manny Pacquiao in August to keep the title, many in the boxing world were shocked. Although the fight was fought at the last minute due to the injury of the uniform champion Errol Spencer Jr., many people hope that the 42-year-old Pacquiao can handle business with the Cuban. Pacquiao subsequently announced his withdrawal from the boxing world to focus on the presidential campaign in his hometown of the Philippines.
In addition, Oleksandr Usyk won the unified heavyweight title against Anthony Joshua, which shocked many people. After Joshua invoked his automatic rematch clause, Usek made a decision on the London champion and shined in any heavyweight unified round plan.
