A Few Storylines Going Forward:

 

  1. Yuki Out: Kickboxing always gets the short end of the stick. Yuki, former Krush bantamweight and K-1 World Grand Prix Super Bantamweight champion, is stepping away from kickboxing to pursue a career in boxing. It is a golden age of Japanese boxing right now, so whether it was a good idea to jump in now will be determined, but he has all the tools to succeed.
  2. …And the world’s gonna know your name…: Floyd Mayweather, Wladimir Klitschko, Andre Ward, Laila Ali, and Ann Wolfe headline the 2021 International Boxing Hall of Fame class. They’ll be inducted along with the 2020 Class in June.
  3. That’s (Mostly) a Wrap: Now, officially, Bellator, UFC, Glory, and major boxing (aside from one card this weekend) has wrapped up for 2020. In the UFC’s case, for a calendar month. Suppose it’s time to actually see your family on the weekends. Dumb.
