WBC Prez on Canelo-Jacobs, Wilder-Fury II, Shields-Hammer, More

By Mauricio Sulaiman

Every sport has its championship game or games. Baseball has the World Series, Hockey has the Stanley Cup finals, Basketball has the NBA finals, and so on, but boxing is one of the few sports which can have several "Super Bowls" during the year. So, 2019 is already shaping up with some great contests that can earn the title "Super Bowl of Boxing."
 
The first one: WBC lightweight champion Mikey Garcia vs. Errol Spence Jr. for the welterweight title, two undefeated champions fighting each other at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium. It is a fight that has all the elements to be epic, a great matchup of two undefeated world champions fighting for the world of recognition of being the best. It is a fight that reminds experts of Julio Cesar Chavez vs. Meldrick Taylor or Roberto Duran vs. Sugar Ray Leonard.
 
In the heavyweight division, the Deontay Wilder vs. Tyson Fury rematch can certainly be billed as such, a second fight after the "Fight of the Year" winner for 2018 would get the world's attention.

Canelo Alvarez' appearance on the 5 de Mayo weekend in Las Vegas is certainly another one. This WBC middleweight title defense against Daniel Jacobs makes a fight of great interest with three world titles at stake. Las Vegas will certainly have a huge success, and to see boxing dominate 5 de Mayo and September 16 is very important.
 
Women's boxing will certainly enjoy its Super Bowl fight. Claressa Shields fighting Christina Hammer as the main event on U.S. television is huge. That will be perhaps the greatest fight in women's boxing.

There are so many other fights out there, fights that can be made for the interest of the fans from around the world. Hopefully, promoters and networks will work towards making these matches possible.
 
I just saw a video from Manny Pacquiao congratulating Tom Brady – two 40-year-old prime athletes with recent success. Simply amazing.
