SORT BY Relevancy
A December fight against former welterweight titlist Joshua Clottey -- which was supposed to be the first on Alvarez's new contract with HBO -- was canceled because of Alvarez's lingering left ankle injury that he said has healed. Kirkland (32-1, 28 KOs), a 31-year-old southpaw from Austin, Texas, has not fought since a rousing sixth-round knockout of then-undefeated Glen Tapia in December 2013. Kirkland had management issues, legal problems and turned down various fights while also parting ways with longtime trainer Ann Wolfe to work with the tandem of Bay Bay McClinton and Rick Morones.
Undefeated light welterweight Frankie Gomez faces former champion Humberto Soto.
The 140-pound weight class is always filled with talented fighters, and Gomez could be ready to join that distinguished group. Soto should be his toughest test to date. Omar Figeroa vs Ricky Burns live on PBC.

Well that Saul "Canelo" Alvarez vs Amir Khan announcement sure came out of nowhere. How are we even supposed to react to news like this? A welterweight and big junior middleweight fighting for the middleweight title at a catchweight? It's weird. Some like it. Some don't. Patrick Connor of The Fight City is joined by Matthew Swain of The Queensberry Rules in dissecting the matchup and figuring out just how hard we should roll our collective eyes, if at all.
Also a likely topic is last weekend's sacrificial offering of Jean Pascal upon the altar of Sergey Kovalev. Was the rematch productive at all?

This Saturday, at 5PM ET/3PM PT, FightHype Radio returns with hosts Ben Thompson and Percy Crawford bringing you all the hottest topics in boxing and mixed martial arts. Joining us this week as a special co-host is Bellator light heavyweight and Rizin Fighting Federation heavyweight tournament champion King Mo Lawal. You never know who's going to drop by, so be sure to listen to the latest episode of FightHype Radio and don't miss your chance to call in.
Most of 2016 to this point has been us waiting for bigger fights to get made and hanging onto every negotiation update. It's okay, though. The boxing world almost always slows down early in the year. Buck up, everyone.
Another reason to cheer up is that Brian Campbell of ESPN joins the Patrick Connor of The Fight City this week to be the resident philosophe. From "Canelo" Alvarez vs Amir Khan being announced, to Gennady Golovkin vs Dominic Wade, Andre Ward vs Sullivan Barrera, Carl Frampton vs Scott Quigg, the heavyweights and more... Campbell will show us the way.

After months of calling out fellow UK welterweight, Amir Khan, for a super showdown that Khan seemed to have no interest in, IBF Welterweight Champion, Kell Brook sets his sights on the baddest man in the middleweight division, Gennady Golovkin. “Get me Golovkin at 155 pounds,” Brook said via the Metro from IFL TV.
“I started laughing,” Hearn (Brook's promoter) said to IFL TV about Brook’s interest in fighting Golovkin. “And he said ‘I’m serious.’ I actually spoke with [Golovkin’s promoter] Tom Loeffler. I believe Kell is the best welterweight in the world, but he has to build his resume to prove it. He will jump into a super fight in the summer. He has to and he will.”
Is this all just hype? Is Brook trying to upstage Amir Khan in the wake of his recent signing to fight WBC Middleweight Champion Saul Alvarez? Can this fight really happen and should it really happen? We will discuss this and much more on this special edition show.

Tonight, we discuss the bombshell fight announcement from earlier today when we learned that WBC/Lineal middleweight champion of the world Saul “Canelo” Alvarez will be defending his title against Amir Khan at a catch weight of 155lbs. Even fresh off of one of the biggest fights of his career – a win over Miguel Cotto last year – Canelo is determined to prove he is willing to make the biggest matchups possible.
Canelo and Khan will take place in Las Vegas, likely at the new T-Mobile arena scheduled to open in April, but the site is not yet determined. However, we do know that the mega showdown will happen May 7th on HBO PPV. The announcement sent shockwaves through the boxing world, specifically through social media. Now, we attempt to bring together and discuss all the excitement, all the concerns and all of the speculation that makes this fight so important.

Many boxing observers are accusing Amir Khan's father, Shah Khan of signing his own son's death warrant by negotiation for an agreeing to a fight with lineal middleweight title-holder, Saul "Canelo" Alvarez. The jump up in weight is widely considered too great for Khan who moves up a full weight class and a pound, to what has become known as "Canelo weight."
Even as "middleweight champion," Canelo is back to doing what he does best, facing smaller challengers nobody in his weight class is worried about.
ONTHEGRiND BOXiNG breaks down the fight in the aftermath along with the latest boxing news, commentary, predictions and analysis from around the boxing world.
Tonight on The Ruckus, hosts Jeandra LeBeauf, Ryan Bivins and Michelle Rosado are joined by Jesse Vargas and Mauricio Herrera. This week it was announced that Vargas will challenge Sadam Ali for the vacant WBO welterweight title. In case that sounds confusing, news broke this week that now former champion Timothy Bradley will vacate the title in order to fight Manny Pacquiao instead of his mandatory Sadam Ali.
Also joining the crew, Mauricio Herrera. Herrera is currently finalizing plans to face off against Lucas "The Machine" Matthysse on the undercard of the upcoming Canelo Alvarez vs Amir Khan event in May.
