2017's final month is upon us, and this year has been far kinder to all of us boxing fanatics than previous years have been. And we're still not done!
This weekend on HBO, Miguel Cotto fights for (what he says is) the final time, taking on Sadam Ali, who is moving up a division for the clash. It's less-than-ideal, but Cotto is still a massive draw and an important figure in boxing. Whether or not he fights on after this is tougher to know.
Last weekend, also on HBO, Sergey Kovalev made a successful return following the Andre Ward debacle(s) by thrashing Vyacheslav Shabranskyy in 2 rounds. The tripleheader also brought us scraps between Sullivan Barrera and Felix Valera, and Yuriorkis Gamboa and Jason Sosa. Both had their share of controversy, per usual.
What about the state of the heavyweight division? Deontay Wilder's hopes for presiding over it? Upcoming bouts? We're going there.
