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 defeated Caleb Plant in November and completed the takeover of the super middleweight division, becoming the first undisputed champion in the division’s history. During the 12 months of hustle and bustle, he won four huge victories, which made him once again the consensus choice for the best boxer of the year.
When WBA welterweight champion Yordenis Ugas defeated legend Manny Pacquiao in August to keep his 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 Spence Jr., many people hope that the 42-year-old Pacquiao can handle the game against 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 in the game against Anthony Joshua, which was dazzling. After Joshua invoked his automatic rematch clause, Usek made a decision on the London championship and invested a wrench in any plan for the heavyweight unification round.
