Gwenta Davis vs. Mario Barrios, Tyson Fury vs. Deonta Wilder 3
Boxing will continue in 2021. After a difficult year 2020, many stars do not participate in the competition or participate in only one competition. In the new year, a few boxers achieved great success.
Look at the King of British Books himself, Canelo Alvarez (Canelo Alvarez). The Mexican superstar scored two knockout games, easily blocked Avni Yildirim in February, and then blocked Billy Joe Saunders again in May. Now, Alvarez is hoping to date Caleb Plant in September to achieve undisputed title status in the super middleweight division.
Additionally, Filipino legend Nonito Donaire turned back time and prevented Nordine Oubaali from reclaiming the WBC bantamweight title, which ended in May. Donell broke his record for the longest time he won a Grand Slam at the age of 38. Legendary retired champion Floyd Mayweather kept his distance from social media star Logan Paul during the June show.
There are still several battles to come in June, but none will be bigger than the one that took place in Atlanta on June 26. Gervonta “Tank” Davis will raise two weight classes and challenge Mario Barrios for the WBA Junior welterweight championship in the main showtime PPV event. Davis beat Rio Santa Cruz in the round of 16 this year and his strength has been fully demonstrated. Now, it’s time to understand how that power transforms when he gains 10 pounds.

Additionally, in July, the long-awaited trilogy between heavyweights Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder will debut in Las Vegas. The two fought with a controversial draw in their first meeting, and then Fury ousted Wilder from his WBC championship with a powerful punch. Now, after the referee rules that Wilder’s rematch clause is still valid, the two will meet. The winner is expected to meet unified champion Anthony Joshua later in 2021.
In August, the highly anticipated Manny Pacquiao will be arguably his biggest test against unified welterweight champion Errol Spence. Pacquiao has been on the sidelines since his sensational victory over Keith Thurman in 2019, and now he’s won the Unified Championship at the age of 42 with a weight of 147 pounds, which is almost unbelievable.
The following is a list of major boxing events in 2021.
