What can we expect from UK Boxing in 2022?
The heavyweights have dominated the headlines over the past two or three years, and 2022 looks no different.
Anthony Joshua is expected to get his rematch with Oleksandr Usyk in the first half of 2022 as the Briton attempts to wrestle his heavyweight titles back from the unbeaten Ukrainian, and Tyson Fury and Dillian Whyte are all set for an all-British clash for the WBC strap inside Wembley Stadium on April 23.
Undisputed super lightweight champion Josh Taylor will also be looking to further cement his legacy.
The proud Scot became Britain’s first ever four-belt champion after beating Jose Ramirez in May and is eyeing up a move to the lucrative welterweight division in 2022.
Taylor won a disputed decision against Jack Catterall in late February in the first defence of his undisputed titles.
Lawrence Okolie became a cruiserweight world champion in 2021 and will be targetting Mairis Briedis’s RING Magazine title this year to state his dominance on the 200-pounders.
Joshua Buatsi, Callum Smith, Joe Joyce, Josh Warrington and Kid Galahad will all be eyeing world title opportunities as well as Leigh Wood and Sunny Edwards attempting to cling onto their world titles.
There are also plenty of big fights expected at domestic level, with British champions Chris Billam-Smith, Dan Azeez, Lennox Clarke and Troy Williams all attempting to move up the pecking order in the UK.
