The weekend is approaching, and from Friday to Sunday, it will be the “fight-o-clock” somewhere in the world. Every Thursday, The Ring will bring you the latest information on the most relevant fights you need to see in that week at a glance, a unique enhanced fight schedule. A quick checklist for the connoisseur, a useful guide for the boxing neophyte is what we aim for.

Friday, September 16 – Palenque de la Expo, Ciudad Obregon, Mexico

Luis Torres vs Cesar Gutierrez – lightweight – 10 rounds

Anytime you have two undefeated young Mexicans putting it all on the line for pride and country, you know you’ll see plenty of action, from left hooks to the body and hits to the canvas. This intriguing clash promises that, and more.

Saturday, September 17 – T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas

Canelo Alvarez vs Gennadiy Golovkin – super middleweight – 12 rounds

The fight of the week, no doubt, and the likely end to a great saga between these two true warriors, with the Ring belt and all four major belts also on the line. The first was a draw and the second was won by Canelo, but the results can go either way depending on who you ask.

What to expect in this fight: With both of their legacies on the line, expect Canelo (who has the weight and age advantage on his side) to shake off his painful loss to Dmitry Bivol in his previous fight with an extraordinary performance. . In any case, it will be a fight to watch – and remember as the end of a great rivalry.

Jesse “Bam” Rodriguez vs. Israel Gonzalez – junior bantamweight -12 rounds

Rodriguez will put his WBC belt on the line in an intriguing fight while awaiting a possible challenge from the one he would like to face, the great Chocolatito.

Gavin Gwynne against Craig Woodrufflight – 10 shots

Interesting bad blood match between two Welshmen with the British title on the line. Current titleholder Gwynne should have the upper hand in terms of experience and skill in this one.

Saturday, September 17 – Alessi Gym Fitness Center, Tampa, Florida

Yamaguchi Falcao vs Abel Adriel – super middleweight – 8 rounds

Former Brazilian Olympian and promising prospect Falcao is still looking to rebuild his career after his upset loss to Christopher Pearson in 2019. Looks like he’s serious about stepping up his game as he already has a fight scheduled for late October so that well.

Connor Coyle vs. Silverio Ortiz – middleweight – 8 rounds
