The Middleweight Division’s Current Top 10

The Middleweight Division’s Current Top 10

Back in May we were supposed to see the rematch between Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez, with the Middleweight Championship of the World on the line. Instead Canelo tested positive for clebuterol and instead of the year’s biggest Superfight, we saw GGG in a stay-busy fight against Vanes Martiroysan, a career junior middleweight who has [...]

Terence Crawford vs. Jeff Horn

Terence Crawford vs. Jeff Horn

Terence Crawford is widely regarded as a top pound-for-pound star. Almost anybody with a worthwhile opinion places him somewhere in the top five; top three is more common. He is equally skilled from both a southpaw and orthodox stance. He is dangerous from long, middle and close range. He is a cool tactician with the [...]
