After being away for a over the new year period, we are back and having seen some incredible matches and some shock results, I think we can all agree that we are excited to have the boxing season back and underway.
I myself had a chance to sit back and enjoy the highs and lows of the sport that I love, watch matches fall apart, notably Kelly Pavlik calling it a day just a few weeks after promising to take on Andre Ward. Matches being made that have got us on the edge of our seats again, encounters like Alvarez v Trout, Mayweather v Gurrero, Rios v Alvarado and manymore. I also got the chance to attend my local amatuer boxing event showcasing all that the midlands have to offer at a variety of weights. An incredible day that proved once again theres nothing sweeter than live sports, especially up close and personal.
Watching David Prices shock loss to Tony Thompson was hard to swallow, especially as I have been backing him to go all the way and dominate what is a less than average heavyweight division right now. Instead its Tyson Fury that yet again have the critics talking, and weather its for the right or wrong reasons, he definately looks like nobody is going to stop him getting a shot at a world title. Adrien Broner showed us yet again tha he is the man to beat at lightweight, taking Gavin Rees to the limits of his boxing ability and showing that he was still leagues ahead of him. His brash and cocky nature is coming across more and more to the Brithish public, but it would seem his home nation are still struggling to connect to his fighting nature.
Froch v Kessler 2 was officially announced and leaves all British fight fans with a mouthwatering promise that this time round, Froch may comeout on top. Both men friends outside the ring again seems a distance away as they now both prepare for the biggest fights of their careers. With Froch aiming for another rematch with Ward and Kessler looking to climb back to the top of a division he once dominated.
This post is short and sweet but I want all fans to know that we at BWM will be back and tracking all the latest fight news and reviewing all the fights from across the world.
