Brook biggest test of all for Golovkin

With their middleweight clash now just under a month away, Gennady Golovkin believes that Kell Brook will provide him with the biggest test of his career to date when the duo clash at the O2 Arena in London.

With IBF Welterweight Champion Brook having stepped up two weight divisions to take on Golovkin, the Kazakhstani fighter is understandably the favourite in the boxing odds from bookmakers. The 34-year-old has won each of his 35 professional contests to date, with 32 coming by way of knockout. The WBC, IBF and WBO Middleweight titles will be on the line in London next month, with Golovkin not taking his British opponent lightly, despite being the overwhelming favourite.

Kell Brook weighed in at almost a stone heavier than his opponent at the 30-day check in, writing off those in the boxing world who believed Golovkin’s natural strength would be too much for the Brit. You can get on the chin boxing odds of 1/6 on for Golovkin to claim an expected win, while Brook is offered outsider odds of 4/1.

Elsewhere in the boxing in 2016, ahead of his contest with Canelo Alvarez, Liam Smith has predicted a knockout victory over his Mexican opponent. Alvarez is arguably the most celebrated boxer still competing, and the duo will collide at the AT&T Arena on September 17. British fighter Smith has played down concerns over Canelo’s weight, with the Mexican known for adding at least 20 pounds on fight night. Canelo recently overcame Amir Khan in one of the fights of the year, and is favourite in the boxing odds at Coral for another victory, at 1/10 on. 28-year-old Smith is coming off the back of a second-round knockout victory over Predrag Radosevic in June, having suffered just one professional career defeat to date.

A win for both Golovkin and Canelo would likely set up a box office clash between the undefeated duo, with boxing fans worldwide eagerly anticipating such a bout. The boxing odds from Coral are currently too close to call in their boxing betting market.

Liam Smith wants Canelo Alvarez after retaining WBO Light-Middleweight title

After taking just two rounds to retain his WBO Light-Middleweight title by defeating Predrag Radosevic in Liverpool, Liam Smith now wants a fight with Mexican Canelo Alvarez.

According to reports, his camp has already started efforts to resume talks with the Alvarez camp to decide on the date of the fight.

Smith was brilliant in Liverpool on Sunday in front of the jam-packed Echo arena in Liverpool.

After stalking his opponent with some brash words in the first round, Smith derailed Radosevic halfway through the second round with a potent left hook.

The Montenegrin was on his knees straight away as he failed to beat the count of the referee.

As a result, Smith has now retained his title for a second successive time.

Before his main event showdown with the Montenegrin, Smith saw three of his brothers reign victorious in their respective fights last Sunday.

Completing a perfect week for his fans and family, the English boxer left nothing behind to retain his title.

As a result of this victory, the unbeaten record of Smith has now extended to 24 fights.

Also, as he thwarted Radosevic with a knockout, the all-time knockout count of the Englishman went to 13.

However, despite his latest victory, the English public is eager to see Smith in action against Canelo Alvarez.

Alvarez knocked out British fan favourite Amir Khan last month which further adds to the clamour for a Smith/Alvarez match up.

And now with Smith raring up to face the Mexican, the English fans will want him to take revenge.

Klitschko vows to humble Fury in rematch

In the wake of next month’s highly awaited fight between him and Tyson Fury, former World Champion Vladimir Klitschko has guaranteed to humble Tyson Fury in their rematch.

For a fighter who hadn’t lost a single fight in the last decade, it was very difficult for Klitschko to accept his defeat at the hands of Tyson Fury last November.

The Ukrainian was poor that day as Fury stripped him of the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO titles.

After the fight in November, Klitschko was quick to admit that the controversial British Boxer was better than him on the day.

However, if the recent comments of Klitschko are anything to go by, the Ukrainian has definitely learned his lessons in the harshest way possible.

“I’ve suffered like a dog,” Klitschko told German magazine Stern in an interview.

In addition to his win against Klitschko, it is his sexist and homophobic comments that have kept Fury in the headlines.

Therefore, when Klitschko will fight Fury on the 9th of July, the Ukrainian will enjoy unparalleled support from many of the civil right activists around the globe.

“I’m going to bash his face in for all his anti-semitic, sexist and homophobic comments, which he regularly likes to come out with.”

Taking a look at his past successes, Klitschko claimed that he was just like the German football Champion Bayern Munich prior to his defeat.

The boxer further claimed that continuous success is always boring as it does not satisfy the public.

“But what is the option? To lose? Or to be the subject of scandal? I wouldn’t want either.” Said Klitschko.
