I think some boxing “purists” might be upset. However, Logan Paul Vs KSI Is Not Going To Break Or Make Boxing (It Might Be A Missed Opportunity). YouTube personalities Logan Paul and KSI (Real Name Olajide William Olatunji) Will box against each other in a real on the record boxing match tonight at the Staples Center, Los Angeles, California. All in all this bout is not going to make or break boxing. It’s not going to move the needle it won’t create new fans. It won’t turn fans away. I do think, however, there is a missed opportunity. That has to do with the rest of the card. World Champions Billy Joe Saunders & Devin Haney have scheduled bouts against unknown opponents. This is where I think DAZN & Matchroom are missing an opportunity. I’m not expecting them to match Saunders & Haney in 5-Star matches, but they could have put them in more compelling matchups that I think could turn viewers tuning in just for Paul/Olatunji into new boxing fans.
GGG Stops Rolls In 4 Rounds! In DAZN Debut! Gennady Golovkin stops Steve Rolls in the fourth round in his debut fight under his contract with DAZN and his first fight since his controversial loss to Canelo Alvarez.back in September of 2018. Sports Talk With Troy On YouTube https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC1DnNvUpABr-ayiIMvwBJgg
Who Will GGG Fight In June?
Now that Gennady Golovkin is officially with DAZN who will his first opponent be? He is expected to fight in June with the goal of facing the winner of May’s Canelo Alvarez/Daniel Jacobs fight in September.
So the question is who does GGG fight in June to set up that September fight? I am expecting them to keep the fight in house so don’t expect to see Jermall Charlo or for that matter Jermell Charlo & Billy Joe Saunders as oppoents. I don’t see GGG going to 168 so dont expect Callum Smith or Dmitry Bivol in June. All of the above could be in Golovkin’s future, but not in June.
I don ‘t think they take a huge risk, but will want to face someone with some credibility. The first name to pop up is Maciej Sulecki. Solid boxer has a fight this weekend that he should win Sulecki. won’t turn heads, but he has some solid wins and would make an ideal opponent if they are looking to get rid of some ring rust. Sergiy Derevyanchenko is someone who could be in play as well. There are people who think they should have fought last May. Speaking of last May when the GGG/Canelo rematch was postponed Jaime Munguia came up as a possible replacement opponent The NSAC decided that Munguia was too inexperienced and squashed that fight. Since then Munguia has become a champion at 154. The last guy I think they are looking at is Demetrius Andrade. The WBO middleweight champion had a fight scheduled for June in his hometown of Providence, Rhode Island, on boxrec as of yesterday. Now he doesn’t. I will let you read whatever you would like into that.
