We experience this every year as boxing fans: weather heats up, so do the fights. Yes, we've had cancellations and postponements, but that's just a part of the sport. We've already had a solid first near-half of the year, and we have some tasty stuff coming our way too.
This weekend Gennady Golovkin finally makes it back into the ring, albeit not against "Canelo" Alvarez and not on HBO PPV as we had all hoped and anticipated. Instead, due to the whole Clenbuterol thing, we'll see Golovkin take on Vanes Martirosyan on HBO. It's a weird Cinco de Mayo consolation, but...okay. Intriguing, however, is the addition of undefeated and undisputed women's welterweight champion Cecilia Braekhus in a title defense against Kali Reis.
Also this weekend is the rematch between Tony Bellew and David Haye. It's a rematch so highly anticipated I'm just going to end this sentence after I change the subject to last weekend.
Daniel Jacobs scrapped his way to a decision win over Maciej Sulecki on HBO last weekend, and that needs some discussing. Mostly a potential Jacobs-Charlo showdown needs discussing, but that's what we mean here. There's also that showing from Jarrell "Big Baby" Miller against Johann Duhaupas. That was a thing.
