  Bentley: "You Don’t Get Paid For Overtime"  
It’s homecoming night for South London’s Denzel “2Sharp” Bentley (15-1-1, 13KOs) as he looks to reclaim the British Middleweight Title against Luton’s Linus Udofia (17-0, 9 KOs) live and free on Channel 5 on Friday May 13 from 10pm.

Bentley suffered his first career loss to Felix Cash in 2021, but immediately bounced back with a win later in the year to set up this exciting title bout at the Indigo at the O2 in London. You will rarely find someone with such a vicious knockout ratio carrying such a calm demeanour with them. It may be a relaxed Bentley outside of the ring, but inside it is a man who has either retired his opponent or stopped them in every victory since a points decision win back in April 2019. “I’m always calm and relaxed. I’m doing something I enjoy so there’s no need to be nervous or uptight or anything like that,” he said. “I know I’ve put in the work, so I’m calm.”

The Continuing Story Of Dewey, Cheatem & Howe
 
By William Trillo
Okay, let’s be honest here. When the judges’ scorecards were getting read by David Diamante after the Bivol vs. Canelo fight and he announced identical scores of 115-113 by all three judges, how many of you immediately thought, “Uh oh! No way, they are going to give this fight to Canelo.” I know I did. In fact, Dmitry Bivol himself said he was worried when he heard those 115-113 scores.

But as we found out moments later the unanimous decision was rightly given to Bivol. As it should have been.

  Bivol Stuns Canelo To Retain
His Light Heavyweight Belt
 
By William Trillo

Like a Quarterback standing in the pocket and avoiding a heavy defensive rush Light Heavyweight Dmitrii Bivol (20-0, 11 KO’s) not only stood in there with Saul Canelo Alvarez (57-2-2, 39 KO’s) but he did not get sacked. In fact, Bivol did what no one in the packed T-Mobile Arena was expecting, he ruined the Cinco May Festivities by defeating Canelo handily. The Matchroom promoted fight that was streamed by DAZN will surely go down as one of the biggest upsets in boxing this year.

  Las Vegas T-Mobile Undercard Results  
By William Trillo @ Ringside
Super Lightweights Montana Love (18-0-1, 9 KO’s) and Gabriel Gollaz Valenzuela (25-3-1, 15 KO’s) were the Main Event on this hot Las Vegas fight night card. The bout started intense as Valenzuela was dropped late in round one. Not to be outdone he returned the favor in the next round when he sent Love to the canvas in the next round. But that was going to be it as the fight became a chess match, a boring chess match. The fact is the fight became so dull that the crowd was booing more than they were cheering. The action the fans wanted to see was not taking place. The fight would go on like this for the entire twelve rounds. The crowd would show its disapproval one more time when the scores were read. It was a unanimous decision as all cards read 114-112 across the board for Love. Apparently, the fans in attendance did not agree. For his efforts Love took home the Vacant IBF North American Super Lightweight Title.

  Taylor vs. Serrano Final Press Conference Quotes  
Katie Taylor: "The amount of media we have had to do all week was huge. I’m sick of talking about myself but it’s been an amazing week so far. This is definitely very different than how I started boxing when I was eight or nine years old. Like Eddie said, I had to pretend I was a boy to get fights. Women’s boxing wasn’t even a sanctioned sport in Ireland. Now here we are many years later headlining MSG, the most iconic venue in boxing. Making history as the biggest women’s boxing match in history is just incredible. This is all of the sacrifice that I have been working for, for sure."

Saved by the bell, Diaz, Jr. recovered and performed excellently in the second round, cornering Gesta and visibly hurting him. As the fighters grew more comfortable in the ring, they traded blows staying in the pocket, both relentless. The fighters brought the cheering crowd to their feet with their fearless performances as the judges determined their fate. With scores of 93-95, 92-96, and 92-96, the judges ruled in favor of Mercito Gesta, crowning him the victor via unanimous decision.

Big Boxing Weekend Thoughts:
Don’t Count GGG Out, Not Just Yet
 
By William Trillo
The general consensus going into the Gennady Golovkin vs. Ryota Murata fight was an overwhelming concern that Golovkin, who just turned 40 years old, was past his prime and was more than vulnerable facing the rugged Murata on his home turf.

In the early rounds it looked as though those concerns were valid as a nonstop body attack had Golovkin reeling. He was visibly uncomfortable. GGG was wincing and his body language was not good, he was hurt, no one could doubt that.

  Ryan Garcia Defeats Emmanuel Tagoe  
San Antonio was treated to fireworks at the Alamodome today when the undefeated boxing superstar, Ryan Garcia (22-0, 18KOs) of Victorville, CA, made a triumphant return to the ring against the top-rated Emmanuel “The Gameboy” Tagoe (32-2, 15KOs) of Accra, Ghana. The 12-round lightweight fight featured a strong performance from Garcia to a crowd of 14,459 as he landed an early power punch that sent Tageo to the canvas in the second round. Once both fighters found their rhythm, Garcia systematically broke down the Ghanaian boxer as he landed precise punches to the head and body. Tagoe tried his best to keep his distance using an ineffective jab. Garcia visibly hurt Tageo in the 10th round, but the Ghanaian fighter resorted to holding Garcia to prevent further punishment. Ultimately, the judges ruled in Garcia’s favor with scores of 119-108, 118-109, 119-108 for a victory by unanimous decision.

  Golovkin Unifies WBA & IBF Middleweight Titles
With 9th Round Stoppage Over Murata
 
Gennady Golovkin (42-1-1, 37 KO's) unified the WBA and IBF Middleweight Titles by stopping Ryota Murata (16-3, 13 KO's) in the 9th round in Saitama, Japan. Murata, who held the WBA Title, gave Golovkin a hard time early, hurting him to the body in the 2nd round. In round 3 both men started going to war in a back-and-forth fight. Golovkin withstood the best Murata had to offer and began to take control in the 4th. By round 6 Golovkin was walking Murata down and to the ropes. Murata offered minimal in return, holding his gloves high to protect his head. Golovkin rarely went to the body, but head-hunting was enough as Murata was turned around and downed from a quick right hand in the 9th round. Murata's corner had seen enough and threw in the towel to prevent their fighter from taking further punishment. Final time was 2:11.
