In 2022, boxing will continue to bring some big fights and moments. Things have picked up after a strong start to 2018, and now there are big fights almost every week.
Major moments have already been witnessed in the year, such as Errol Spence Jr.'s victory over Yordenis Urgas to unify all four of the world welterweight championships. Tyson Fury recently defeated Dillian Whyte in London, and may have been the last fight he will be in the ring.
However, the biggest was May's defeat by Canelo Alvarez in his attempt to become WBA lightweight champion against Dmitry Bivol. As the undisputed super-middleweight champion, Alvarez was unable to challenge Dmitry Bivol in his bid to become WBA light heavyweight champion. He landed a career low of 12 rounds and a record number of punches. Alvarez's next steps are not yet clear.
Jermell Charlo became seventh male boxer in history to unify all four titles in a given division. He defeated Brian Castano in a rematch at junior weight. In his quest for all four titles, Charlo defeated each of his opponents. Gervonta "Tank", Davis, Gervonta's opponent in Rolando Romero's rivalry, won the sixth round at Barclays Center.
