A Few Storylines Going Forward:

  1. Billy Bigfight: After his emphatic defeat of Martin Murray, Billy Joe Saunders‘s promoter Eddie Hearn immediately put the kibosh on any stay-busy or mandatory fight for his super middleweight champion next, instead calling out the likes of GGG, Canelo, Callum Smith, or Demetrius Andrade. And look! There’s Andrade with a challenge!
  2. Yikes: Viviane Obenauf, 34 year-old Brazilian former world championship boxing contender is being held in the beating death of her husband. Yeeeesh. It’s early, so more as the story develops.
  3. Poor Reffing, Poor Judging: Part 83444: Another fight weekend, another sham by the people in charge. On the Spence-Garcia card, referee Neal Young may have a heart of gold, but a head made of shit, as he allowed Francisco Santana to take so much punishment at the hands of Josesito Lopez that the crowd at AT&T stadium were visibly uncomfortable. Across the pond, the worst scorecard of the last few months came during the Anthony Yarde-Lyndon Arthur bout, where a judge bafflingly had it 117-111 for Yarde. The people in charge of his sport keep letting us down over and over and over again.
