I have never seen a list of great boxers that is the “correct” list; there is no such thing. Attempts can be made to close the gap by quantification, but in the end, the entirely subjective nature of any list comparing fighters across different weight categories and different eras is bound to be the subject of heated debate. Nonetheless, many have had a go at it.

Rabbiting in Vegas: Canelo defeats Lara

I’ll give him a rematch when he learns how to fight.- Canelo    

I’ll fight anyone, whether they move or not, he was the one doing all the talking and in the end no one wants to go to his school”—Canelo

Tickets are set to be released on Monday after the two fighters’ initial press conference, where both will likely start their usual first dose of trash talking. Opinions on who will win are split right down the middle – usually depending on who supports who – but this article will take an unbiased route in order to dissect each fighter’s attributes to find a winner.

Full Card Ringside Report: Lee Selby Cruises to Victory, Gavin Rees Victorious, Nathan Cleverly back

A night of comebacks, retirements, cuts, knockdowns, prospects and World title ambitions were all in the mix at the Motorpoint Arena, Cardiff on Saturday night. ‘The Second Coming’, Matchroom promoted show had something for everyone as they served up a ten fight bill for the Welsh public.

With so many sub-stories, it is difficult, as to where to start – but that must go to one of Wales’ favourite sons; Gavin “The Rock” Rees. The boxing public wanted a rematch with Gary Buckland and the two Warriors obliged. Back in the same venue, on February 1st, Cardiffian Buckland edged a points win in an absolute War. This time it was, Rees who had his hand raised after another compelling twelve rounds.
