Breaking News… Oleksander Usyk to fight Tony Bellew on Nov. 10

Eddie Hearn, Bellew, Usyk

Earlier this morning promoter Eddie Hearn of Matchroom Sports announced on twitter that undisputed Cruiserweight champion Oleksander Usyk will next fight former Tony Bellew Nov. 10 at the Manchester Arena in Manchester, England. The bout will be broadcasted on Sky Sports Box Office in the UK and on DAZN in the United States.

A former WBC Cruiserweight champion, Tony Bellew (30-2-1, 20 KO’s) moved up to Heavyweight to fight two big money fights against David Haye (with Bellew winning both times) will be coming back down to Cruiserweight to challenge Usyk. For his part Oleksandr Usyk (15-0, 11) is on a roll. He has spent the last year participating in the WBSS Cruiserweight tournament and in the process unifed the Cruiserweight division collecting all four world titles (WBA, WBC, IBF, and WBO). Not only is Oleksandr Usyk the only undisputed/unified world champion in the sport right now, he has established himself as one of the best fighters in the world pound for pound.

It was considered a great coup when Oleksandr Usyk signed a deal with Hearn and Matchroom Sports and this fight with Bellew comes at the perfect time for both fighters. This is arguably the biggest bout in the history of the Cruiserweight and is a great way to close out the year.

All boxing fans really want are great fights, the best fighting the best. Usyk vs. Bellew certainly meets that criteria, giving us everything that we as boxing fans want. November 10th can’t get here soon enough!

Donnie Nietes vs. Kazuto Ioka Rumored to take place in December

Nietes vs Ioka

 

By. BrotherJR

September 11, 2018

 

This past weekend Donnie Nietes and Kazuto Ioka fought on separate bouts at The Forum in Inglewood, California as part of SuperFly3. Nietes was on the receiving end of controversial draw against Aston Palicte for the vacant WBO Super-Flyweight title while Ioka won in impressive fashion over McWilliams Arroyo. Pound 4 Pound Boxing Report has now learned there are formative steps taking place for Nietes and Ioka to fight each other in December.

According to sources in Japan, plans are being made for Ioka (23-, 13 KO’s) to the ring at the end of this year with the plan is for him to face Nietes (41-1-5, 23 KO’s) for the vacant WBO Super-Flyweight title. A Nietes – Ioka bout would make sense for multiple. 1. Ioka’s win over Arroyo (ranked 3rd by the WBO at 115 lbs at the time) would assure him a high ranking by the WBO while would presumably retain his current No. 1 WBO ranking despite his draw with Palicte this past weekend. 2. Assuming this bout takes place, the winner would become a four-time, four-division world champion. 3. A battle between the two would accomplish each fighter’s desires of a big-money fight at 115 lbs.

Japan usually has multiple boxing cards at the end of the year, and there is already a schedule event scheduled to take place at the Kyokugen Hall in Tokyo on New Year’s Eve. Given that Ioka has no issue getting a license from the Japanese Boxing Commission (who is technically is without a Japanese Boxing license), a potential fight with Nietes could take place there. If not, there is a possibility of such fight happening in the Philippines though that may be difficult due to financial matters.

For those asking what about Palicte, the man Nietes just fought for the vacant title? Early assumption is that he would fight the winner of a Nietes – Ioka bout as part of SuperFly4 which promoter has stated would take place in the Spring of 2019 on HBO. P4PBoxingReport will keep you updated with any further developments on this potential Super-Flyweight superfight.
