The main fights of September in boxing: Canelo – Golovkin 3, Ruiz – Ortiz, Joyce – Parker
The fight will have to be postponed due to the injury of the champion, about which he
informed through social networks. Show promoter Eddie HearnMatchroom Boxing) decided not to cancel the show – the new main event will be the fight for the IBO lightweight title (up to 61.2 kg) between the British Maxi Hughes (25-5-2, 5 KOs) and the ex-champion two weight categories below his compatriot Kid Galahead (28-2, 17 KOs).
Another title fight of the show is for the WBA belt in the women’s light middleweight (up to 69.9 kg) between the British
Hannah Rankin (12-5, 3 KOs) and Terry Harper (12-1-1, 6 KOs).
Here, in Nottingham, a duel will take place for the vacant “interim” WBO super middleweight title (up to 76.2 kg) between American Demetrius Endred (31-0, 19 KOs) and Briton Zach Parker (22-0, 16 KOs).
The fight is tentatively scheduled for November 5th. The confrontation was supposed to take place on May 21 in Derby (UK), but the American fell ill.
Previously, Andred had renounced the WBO middleweight belt. He no longer works with promoter Eddie Hearn (Matchroom Boixng), who tried hard but failed to turn the left-handed techie into a boxing star.
What if Andred will soon enter the Canelo Club to the current and future conquerors of the four weight classes?
