Boxing in December

18 posts in this topic

There's been a few endings to big fights this year that have left a bad taste in the mouths of many recently, Mayweather - Ortiz, Hopkins - Dawson, and of course JuanMa Marquez - Pacquiao have all ended in controversial circumstances that have looked none-too-good for the face of Boxing.

However! December is filled with some top notch bouts coming up

First of all, on December 2nd we have Felix Sturm against undefeated Martin Murray

Then on the 3rd the eagerly anticipated Miguel Cotto vs Antonio Margarito II at 154, on the undercard for the fight Mike Jones will be taking on Sebastian Lujan, with Pawel Wolak facing off against Delvin Rodruiguez and the exciting Brandon Rios facing John Murray.

On the same night we have Joseph Agbeko with a chance to avenge his controversial MD loss to Abner Mares (in which mares landed probably about 11 legitimate low-blows, one of which was scored as a knockdown, and none of which were penalised), aswell as Anselmo Moreno vs Vic Darychinian. London Derek Chisora will also be taking on Robert Helennius, a more watchable fight than the headline event, Alexander Povetkin vs Cedric Boswell, so in the lead up to the Godawful time Cotto-Margo II will be aired we wont be short of any fights to watch.

On the 10th we have Amir Khan vs Lamont Peterson, with Seth Mitchell vs Timur Ibragimov and Anthony Peterson (brother of Lamont) fighting Sergio Rivera on the undercard.

Then Roid Jones Jr. is facing off against Max Alexander on the same night

17th December we have the Super Six Final, Ward vs Froch, shown live on Sky, with exciting Kell Brook vs Luis Galarza on the undercard

On the 30th we have Andre Dirrell returning to the ring against Daryl Cunningham, and on the 31st we have Guillermo Rigondeux against Rico Ramos for the super-bantamweight title

It's gonna be an enjoyable month of fights, and I've probably missed some!

Sick sick month.

Hope Agbeko wins. First fight was a joke.

Trust me, I've never seen the likes of it. It's something that if you describe to someone they actually think you're exaggerating.

Sturm - Murray seems to have been a battle, been out just caught the last two rounds, from the look of Sturms body language and the (dubious) commentry, seems a very close fight, anybody see? Will have to catch a replay

Sturm looks worried he is a protected hometown fighter though so he's cool.

Draw. Sturm remains champion, Murray remains unbeaten.

Caught it from Round 4, but from what I saw after that I think a draw was a fair result. Sturn with the more quality shots, quite a fair few of Murray's shots were feather-fisted to try and keep Sturm at Bay. Murray did really well but didn't do enough to take the title off Sturm. Cliche but true.

I switched on from round 5 on wards

Was a good bout - from 6 on wards I had MArtin pick up the majority of rounds

Hate how biased Jim Watt is though to british fighters

Seeing on twitter that Rios is having to vacate the title after failing to make the weight...

Yeah watched the whole fight, felt like muting at some points.

Felt it looked too early for Murray but he did have his chances.

I just couldn't understand why he kept dropping his hands; whether it was tiredness, inexperience or arrogance.
