Boxing news

UNFORTUNATELY, we were at the O2 to witness David Haye’s latest sideshow. He breezed past Arnold Gjergjaj while Shannon Briggs hammered Emilio Zarate, and now the pair will meet in September. We analyse the show and get the latest reaction.

Tony Bellew and Ricky Burns both bid to become world champions this weekend, and we preview both of the big shows. On Saturday, Burns faces Michele Di Rocco in Glasgow for the vacant WBA super-lightweight title. The following night, Bellew fights at Goodison Park, the home of his beloved Everton FC, to face KO artist Ilunga Makabu for the vacant WBC cruiser strap.

We also speak to David Avenesyan, the man who holds Shane Mosley’s career in his hands.

In New Zealand, Joseph Parker held off Carlos Takam in what was his toughest fight to date to earn himself a crack at IBF heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua.

Erislandy Lara decisions Vanes Martirosyan in Las Vegas while the Charlo twins make history as fellow super-welter world champions.
