    Hmmm. Not a lot of really close, high energy fights this year, so far.


    I really enjoyed Ramirez - Postol. Every round was close, and both men had high output combined with reasonable skill.

    Joe Smith Jr taking out Alvarez was the highlight of the year for me, so far.
    - Not a great fight, exactly, since Smith was so dominant, but so so sooooo satisfying!

      --- Big Ty epic busting up Deyonce is what I was gonna say, but have to check to when the fight was. Just Another Joe Named Smith breaking a very good Eleider Alvarez before near blasting him out of the ring sweet concussive music. Haven't been many fights to choose from. Btw, this new format compresses the text into a narrow column with no spacing of the paragraphs resulting in a long run on sentence look.

        Are you still using a phone from 2005 Bobby!?

        As per the topic:
        I really can't think of many fights from the year that really have stuck out and I have missed a lot that were deemed to be good match ups and never got to catching up to them.
        So i suppose I'll have to say Whtye / Povetkin. A big shock upset and probably KO of the year highlight reel ending.

          Purely for the result, not the spectacle, has to be Wilder-Fury II from late Feb.

            The ONLY fight I had any real interest in at all was Fury-Wilder II. I just haven't kept up on it the last five years or more, so usually when I recognize a fighters name, it means one thing.......he's an old guy fighting the young star, simply hanging around for a payday.

                  Povetkin blasting Whyte away with one shot-doesn't get any more precious than that if you ask me!

                      I think my favorite fight so far has been Eric Donovan vs Zelfa Barrett. Not really important in the grand scheme of things, but I do love the smaller fights. Donovan had been quietly dominating the fight, but Barrett landed a shot that turned the whole thing around. The ending didn't come right away, but it was inevitable once that shot landed. Donovan showed a lot of heart, but the shots that ended him would probably end most people. It was one of those fights that made me appreciate than anything can happen in boxing.

                        Too late to enter but I'll throw these out anyway:
                        Akhamdaliev Vs Roman is probably my favourite so far in terms of quality
                        Povetkin Vs Whyte made me warm and remember why I love this sport
                        Rentaro Kimura's debut was something that genuinely excited me

                          Favourite (though clearly not best) is Fury - Wilder II; just for the nature of the performance and what it represented in terms of the recent history of the heavyweight division.

                            Julio Cesar Martinez defending his WBC World Flyweight title against Welshman Jay Harris. The fight took place, in February, at The Ford Center at The Star, Frisco, USA.
                            The young Martinez is raw but powerful and Harris has, somewhat, been overshadowed by countryman Andrew Selby. But, Jay has kept plugging away winning Commonwealth & European belts. I covered Jay's debut, in 2013, for Ringnews24.
                            The fight, with Martinez, was fantastic and Harris battled hard against the kid wonder. Harris survived a knockdown in the 10th and showed his heart by fighting back.
                            Great fight - full of action.

                              Good call. I completely forgot about that fight. Just watched it again.

                              Martinez reminds me of a prime Chocolatito. But Harris was fearless, and stood in the pocket trading. Great stuff.
