“Boxing Tonight” is my weekly look at the action on Saturday evening in Great Britain and beyond with the details to look at and what to look out for

There is probably no one more excited about the prospect of Avni Yildirim’s shot at Saul Alvarez than the former IBO contender himself

No more than a compulsory hurdle is how many canelos see excursion on Saturday After the Mexican had already unanimously beaten Callum Smith in December, he would certainly not come into the ring with an opponent that was too threatening

Yildirim himself inevitably does not see it that way, determined to shake off the outsider’s label and already keep an eye on his next fight

Boxing is all about the fans, and we want you to be part of i’s coverage by joining our weekly “inbox” debate

This week we want to know if your predictions for Teofimo Lopez vs George Kambosos Jr in May? Lopez is America’s next big boxing sensation according to some, but can he handle the more experienced Kambosos Jr? Will Lopez extend his unbeaten professional record to 17-0? Or will Kambosos Jr, who defeated Lee Selby in October, turned 20th Win a career?

“I’m feeling fine, I’m doing a good training camp, I’m ready to fight with my mentality My mind is ready, it’s fight week, why not?” Yildirim told IFLTV

“Chris Eubank, it’s so much more experience for me but one day I want a rematch with Chris Eubank

“For me it is so important. He is now with Sauerland Germany is my country. Why not? My team is a great team Maybe you know that I believe in myself and I believe in my coach”

Canelo has only fought once in 2020, but he’s gearing up for another quick turnaround if he can dispose of Yildirim in time Billy Joe Saunders is the prize, and a loose date for Aug. May has already been set

Parker’s two losses came three years ago in consecutive bouts against British opponents, first against Anthony Joshua and then against Dillian Whyte Parker won the vacant WBO crown in 2016 with a points win over Andy Ruiz He also has wins over medium-sized operators Carlos Takam and Hughie Fury

This is about putting on a show to re-enter the power of boxing Parker’s manager David Higgins spoke this week about the prospect of his husband battling Joe Joyce or Oleksandr Usyk to become the WBO’s mandatory challenger again, hoping to eventually face the winner of Joshua against Tyson Fury

A fight against Dereck Chisora ​​was lost to Covid and was resuscitated.Although Parker’s 27 wins were scored by knockout 21 of 27, he struggled to overpower higher caliber opponents

Fa is unbeaten and has a 2-2 amateur record against Parker but is untested in the upper atmosphere of boxing with a knockout odds of 10/19 which shouldn’t bother a former world champion Parker’s team has wandered through the week and has shown a “been there, done” face, which is evident in the reaction to the judges’ dispute

At the age of just 21, Tommy Fury has already racked up four professional victories and is aiming for a fifth win when he takes on British Scott Williams in the Copper Box on Saturday

Fury – the half-brother of heavyweight champion Tyson Fury – has not come through the last four rounds, and Saturday’s clash in London will be another short affair, distance or not, there there are again four rounds

His last three fights were all stopped in the second round, with Genadij Krajevskij from Lithuania being his best game so far last November

The 32-year-old Williams lost his last bout to Lewis Edmondson three months ago and is unlikely to cause too many problems with Fury as the pair face Ijaz Ahmed on the Quaise Khademi map

Tommy Fury: “Apart from boxing, I have nothing – all I want is to be world champion”

Last week I asked you about your predictions of who would win between Canelo and Saunders, it’s almost too close, and much of the boxing world is already looking back at the Canelo and Yildirim clash on Saturday to get from this bigger, more dramatic one Dream about clash of titans

In fact, the likely date of Mayelo’s fight against Saunders suggests that the Mexican’s camp doesn’t worry him very much about Yildirim, who at 29 has only lost two professional fights in his career – one of which was Chris Eubank Jr

Assuming Canelo wins on Saturday, his fight against Saunders would be one of the most important boxing showdowns of 2021, along with the highly anticipated rumble of Anthony Joshua against Tyson Fury
Speaking to the Costello and Bunce podcast this week, promoter Eddie Hearn said, “Hopefully Billy Joe Saunders will be our third fight with Canelo Alvarez and hopefully that relationship will expand and expand. He is a big star in America, Mexico and worldwide, but really one of the few lead actors and subscription drivers on the American market because he’s so good

“The amazing thing about working with Canelo Alvarez is that he’s so good that you have absolutely no fear of matching. We don’t have to maneuver anything. Basically, it’s” everyone’s about my weight – when I’m going up or down have to move, no problem “

“I think when the Billy Joe Saunders fight takes place it’s a really tough fight when Billy is on it this style isn’t difficult for anyone and Billy is the guy who can probably produce that kind of magic if you can need it. And that’s the only way you can beat Canelo in and around that division. The only way he can be beaten by someone outside of a spectacular performance is to move a division almost too high ”

So will Canelo still be one of the most important draws in boxing after he steps out of the ring and fights Saunders? An extension of his record to 56-2-1 would certainly make Hearn plan more big fights in the future
