The importance of this fight for my career and my life was not lost on me. It was all I thought about during training camp at Wild Card. It's all I ever wanted since I started boxing in a gym outside Kiev as a 12-year-old boy."

Alvarez To Face Dawson
 
By Daniel Cloutier
MONTRÉAL - The promoter of the GYM Group, Yvon Michel, confirmed Friday evening that the Montrealer light heavyweight Eleider Alvarez will face the former WBC world champion, Chad Dawson, just before the presentation of the WBC light heavyweight championship of the world opposing the Montrealer southpaw Adonis Stevenson (27-1-0) and Thomas Williams Jr. (20-1-0), from Fort Washington, Maryland.

Dawson (34-4-0), a fighter of 33 years old coming from New Haven, Connecticut, lost his WBC 175 pounds belt at Bell Centre in Montréal in 2013, when Stevenson beat him by TKO in the first round. Alvarez (19-0-0) is actually ranked first contender by the WBC in the 175 pounds division. Alvarez really hopes to be involved in a world title bout this year or next year.

  Thurman Wins By Single Round In War As Advertised With Shawn Porter; Will They Rematch Next?  
Keith Thurman (now 27-0-1ND, 22 KO's) retained the WBA Welterweight Title with a razor thin unanimous decision over Shawn Porter in a fight that gave the audience their moneys worth.

Friends outside the ring, they fought like enemies inside it as Thurman and Porter went back and forth from beginning to end. Thurman started with some boxing and big counters, then it was Porter smothering and landing big bombs. Porter would stagger in the 4th and suffer a cut over his left eye. Thurman would nearly turn his back in retreat after a perfect body blow in the 8th followed by a cut over his own left eye in the 9th. Both men closed the show in the final rounds, with many rounds too close to call in between.

The end result was 115-113 on all three cards in favor of Thurman. Booing would ensue in the crowd, but that only took away from how good and close this fight really was. Both fighters already mentioned doing it again.

The fight was a draw, or one point either way, so this time the scores were right on the money. Had one fighter won by a wide margin as we often see in close fights, then you can boo. Despite Porter dropping to 26-2-1 with 16 KO's, there were no losers in this fight. This was a good fight that lived up to the hype, it was good for boxing, and was not marred by a bad ref or bad scoring.

                                                                                                                         
  Joshua Manhandles Overmatched
Breazeale Through 7 Rounds
 
Anthony Joshua (now 17-0, 17 KO's) retained the IBF Heavyweight Title with a complete shutout for 6 rounds over previously unbeaten Dominic Breazeale, before stopping him in the 7th. Breazeale simply did not belong in the ring with someone of Joshua's caliber. Breazeale had zero head movement, no upper body movement, heck, the only movement he had was when he was getting punched into the ropes. Joshua kept a constant jab and right hand in Breazeale's face from the opening round, staggering him and closing his right eye at the end of the 2nd. Joshua kept the combinations coming and it was only a matter of time. A right hand combination sent Breazeale down for the first time early in the 7th. After rising to his feet, Joshua went in for the finish, blistering Breazeale with punches with his back against the ropes. A left that snapped Breazeale's head back sent him down for the second and final time. The fight was waived off at 1:01. Breazeale drops to 17-1 with 15 KO's. Despite having his way the entire night, had Joshua threw more to the body he would have won even earlier. There were very few, if any at all, body shots in this fight.

An Open Letter To Chris Arreola
 
By William Trillo

Chris,

As soon as your fight with Deontay was announced I have wanted to reach out to you. The reason is simple. Chris, you can beat this guy. In fact, if all the pieces are in place I believe you will.

Whether or not those pieces are in place is your responsibility, yours alone. I hope you are already putting those pieces in place Chris. This championship has been your destiny and now you are getting this one last shot. And let’s be clear, this is your last shot. You and I both know that.

  Statement From Golden Boy Promotions  
“We are extremely pleased that not only did the jury find that no contract ever existed between Canelo and All-Star Boxing, but issued a judgment against All-Star boxing and ordered them to pay Golden Boy’s substantial legal fees.

Over the last five-plus years, many questioned why we wouldn’t just settle the case before trial. The answer is simple: We would not be extorted. It was clear from the beginning that neither Canelo nor Golden Boy Promotions had acted inappropriately in any way. We are grateful that the jury was able to see that.

Molina Shines
 
By William Trillo
John Molina Jrs. victory over Ruslan Provodnikov was an unexpected upset. His game plan over “The Siberian Rocky” was impressive. Molina, who has been through more than his share of trainers hooked up with Shadeed Suluki for this one and the teamwork was magic. In my opinion Suluki is one of the most underappreciated and underrated trainers in boxing. The work to transform Molina from a brawler to a pretty crafty boxer/puncher worked perfectly. Look for Molina to put himself back into another title run with his new style and trainer.
