WBC vs WBA, Bridges brags about size, Usyk and Joshua selfies


The WBC Franchise and WBA Super champion in the second flyweight (up to 52.2 kg) Mexican Juan Francisco Estrada (42-3, 28 KOs) will still fight with the WBA World belt holder in the same weight American Joshua Franco (18-1-2 , 8 KOs) – the fight will take place on August 20 in the USA.

In response to this outrage, the WBC threatens to take away the belt from Estrada WBC franchise, because they are interested in the third fight of the Mexican with the legendary Nicaraguan Roman Gonzalez. Recall that not everything is so smooth between organizations – the WBC president criticized the WBA: “The times of respect have sunk into oblivion!”

IBF champion in the bantamweight (up to 53.5 kg) Australian Ebany Bridges (8-1, 3 KOs) boasts in social networks curvaceous: “Apparently, I forgot how huge they are when I ordered these bikinis for myself.”

Who loves summer?

WBC champions in the second flyweight (up to 52.2 kg) and flyweight (up to 50.8 kg) divisions, respectively, American Jesse Rodriguez (15-0, 10 KOs) and Mexican Julio Cesar Martinez (18-2, 14 KOs) can converge in full-time fight before the end of the year. Rodriguez’s coach Robert Garcia claims this.

According to him, “Jesse Lomachenko” is interested in conquering a division (or even two) below, “after all, this is his natural weight.” At the end of the week, both will fight within the same card, meet with their mandatory contenders: Rodriguez will fight with the legendary Thai Srisaket Sor Rungvisai, and Martinez will have a rematch with Puerto Rican MacWilliams Arroyo.

The current and former unified heavyweight champions (over 90.7 kg) Ukrainian Oleksandr Usyk (19-0, 13 KOs) and Briton Anthony Joshua (24-2, 22 KOs) first had a tough duel of looks, and then it was time for a friendly selfie:

A beautiful message was left in social networks by former WBA Super champion Cuban welterweight (up to 66.7 kg) Yordenis Ugas (27-5, 12 KOs): “Errol Spence is now one of my greatest motivators in boxing. This champion recovered from surgery and immediately entered the fight for 3 championship titles. I hope that I will also be able to fully recover from our face-to-face fight and will once again face the best of the best. For example, a fight with Keith Thurman would be just a great event.”

But the ex-WBO light heavyweight champion (up to 79.4 kg) American Joe Smith Jr. (28-4, 22 KOs) is not sure that after a painful devastating defeat to Russian Artur Beterbiev (18-0, 18 KOs) he will continue in unification performances in the ring: “I plan to move away from boxing for a while. I will keep in shape, and then I will make the final decision when I understand what my future prospects are.”
