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. The Mexican superstar has scored two knockout games, easily blocked Avni Yildirim in February, and then blocked Billy Joe Saunders again in May. Now, Alvarez hopes to date Caleb Plant in September to gain undisputed title status in the super middleweight division.
In addition, the Philippine legend Nonito Donell turned back time and prevented Noordin Ubali from regaining the title of WBC Bantamweight title, which ended in May. Donell broke his record for the longest time he won a Grand Slam at the age of 38. Legendary retired champion Floyd Mayweather kept his distance from social media star Logan Paul at the June exhibition.

Despite the delays due to COVID-19, Tyson Fury and Deonta Wilder will finally score in their competition when they meet in the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in October. The game was originally scheduled to be held on July 24, when Wilder won the arbitration award and allowed him to participate in the third game because Fury wanted to play a unified game with Anthony Joshua.
