Anthony Joshua vs. Deontay Wilder
The dream unification bout between Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder never happened in 2019. It is among the most anticipated bouts in the sport but there are issues always cropping up. Sporting fans and analysts have accused the fighters of shying away from each other In reality however, it’s sometimes beyond the fighters themselves.
After the first and second fights with Tyson Fury, Wilder has activated a clause for a rematch. That means fans will have to wait. Joshua holds the IBF, WBA, WBO and IBO belts, and of course, the Brit will opt to face his countryman
Fury if he wins the third bout against Wilder. For now, it’s a waiting game.
Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder
The first fight between the Gypsy King Fury and Wilder ended in a controversial draw. The second fight was more conclusive as the Briton won. However, the American has activated a clause for a third fight, and isn’t this just what boxing wants?
There’s a lot of intrigue in this trilogy fight, and it’s no wonder this is slated to happen in Las Vegas. A lot is at stake, especially for Wilder who has to reclaim his honor. For fans, this is among the biggest fights of the decade. There’s so much interest in the bout that sportsbooks and other online platforms already have boxing odds for the rematch.

Anthony Joshua vs. Tyson Fury
Imagine all-British blockbuster boxing bout featuring the best talent in the boxing scene today? Well, the heavyweight rivals were destined to meet somewhere along the way in their impressive careers.
The Gypsy King’s win against American Deontay Wilder saw fans clamoring for a matchup between the two British heavyweight rivals. Fury had an incredible performance against Wilder in the first and second bouts. Joshua, on the other hand, enjoyed a superb rematch over Andy Ruiz Jr in December 2019.
If this were to happen, it would be the biggest sporting event in the UK and also in the global sporting world.
Terence Crawford v Errol Spence
Can this dream fight actually happen? It is one fight every boxing fan would tune in to watch. After his knockout victory against Ejidijus “Mean Machine” Kavaliaukas, Terence Crawford went to Twitter and started goading Errol Spence
. The two boxers later talked about a possible fight.
Errol Spence had been in a horrific car accident back in October 2019. Terrence was gracefully enough to give his would-be opponent a grace period to recover. It seems Terrence is now getting impatient for a unification fight.
A win would make the Nebraska native the unified welterweight champion of the world. With the back and forth between the camps, it seems it will be a long wait before this mega bout for welterweight supremacy materializes.
Never a Dull Moment
Boxing today offers so much promise for the fans. From Canelo Alvarez vs. Artur Beterbiev, Oleksandr Usyk vs. Dereck Chisora to Josh Taylor v José Ramírez, there’s always something cooking in the boxing world. If any of these fights happen this year, they would light up the boxing world and give fans one more thing to be grateful for in 2020.
