The fight game continues to be red hot as we begin to wind down 2019. With huge boxing unifications fights as well as PPV blockbusters on the horizon, the final three months of the year could be the best we’ve seen yet from boxing.
Even with the return of Manny Pacquiao twice already in 2019, there’s still plenty of welterweight and heavyweight action to come. Errol Spence Jr. and Shawn Porter are set to square off in September with three of the recognized 147-pound straps on the line. Plus, lineal heavyweight champion Tyson Fury is back in what is expected to be his final tuneup fight for a much anticipated rematch with Deontay Wilder. Wilder, on the other hand, is yet to officially book his rematch with Luis Ortiz.
