Best World Boxing Free Bets and Betting Offers
What can we expect from World Boxing in 2022?
In short: an undisputed heavyweight world champion.
With Anthony Joshua and Oleksandr Usyk expected to rematch in the summerl, the winner should then be cleared to face Tyson Fury – assuming he doesn’t follow through with his latest threat of retirement following a TKO-6 win over Dillian Whyte in April.
Whether boxing politics will continue to frustrate the path to an undisputed champion is yet to be seen, but all of the right noises are being made so far from those involved.
The lightweight division also needs shuffling in 2022.
George Kambosos Jr., Devin Haney, Teofimo Lopez, Ryan Garcia, Gervonta Davis and Vasyl Lomachenko are all jostling for position at 135 pounds – any combinations of these six fighters would be high on a lot of boxing fans shopping lists.
What next for Canelo Alvarez?
The Mexican superstar is a four-weight world champion and the current undisputed king at super-middleweight – the first boxer in history to do so.
Rumours of Alvarez jumping up to cruiserweight to fight the aforementioned Illunga Makabu are gathering pace, with a weight jump of around 25 pounds expected if Alvarez is to win a world title in a fifth division.
However, it’s Russia’s Dmitry Bivol that has landed the Canelo lottery first with the pair squaring off in Las Vegas on May 7 at light-heavyweight.
Elsewhere we can still dream that Terence Crawford and Errol Spence Jr. meet inside the squared circle.
The two best welterweights on the planet have avoided each other for the past three years working with rival promotional companies, but with Crawford announcing his split from Top Rank there could be a way that these two finally meet…
Oh, and Jake Paul is expected to continue causing a stir in boxing circles.
The YouTuber turned fighter is 5-0 as a professional and is hopeful that his postponed fight with Tommy Fury will be rescheduled in 2022.
