National dates have arrived to celebrate another anniversary of the beginning of the Mexican independence struggle, days in the calendar that are provided as an excuse to carry out activities of a different nature, as also happens in sports. These days have always been a window into boxing evenings with the elite Mexican fighters in the ring.
For boxing enthusiasts, May and September become long months as great fights are expected from Aztec boxers seeking a title, defending their belt or putting a good bag of money on the table to take on the world’s best boxers.
However, in the past year, the pandemic has ended and postponed these dynamic fights, unleashed fighters who were living their best moments and even allowed some fighters like Canelo Alvarez to intensify their departure from the meadows they were with, Golden. Boy Promotions, for not finding fights for the guy from Guadalajara.
More than a year into the pandemic, the year of boxing has been steady and rich in fights, including the show, as Mike Tyson, Floyd Mayweather and Evander Holyfield came out of retirement to perform. But in September, the calendar will once again run out of Mexicans on the chain to celebrate national holidays.
Will boxing fights be held on September 15th?
Boxing evenings will not take place on the 15th and 16th of this month. And there won’t be the following weekend, which are the days it normally takes place as part of national holidays. So, Mexican fans will be left wanting to see a gloved citizen above the track.
The three-color boxer closest to the date was Oscar Valdes, who won unanimously in his first belt defense, amid controversy for having tested positive for anti-doping.
When was the last battle of Canelo in September?
Alvarez has good and bad memories of those dates in the ring, as happened on the weekend of September 15th when he lost 43 matches unbeaten to Floyd Mayweather Jr., in 2013. He didn’t fight two years after that loss.
In 2016 he returned to defeat Liam Smith by knockout in the ninth round at AT&T Stadium. Then he faced the Kazakh Gennady Golovkin twice, drew with him in 2017, and a year later defeated him.
Will there be more fights in September?
Yes, only one stands out among all the fights that may exist, but because of its relevance, it shines with its own light, even if it does not have a Mexican involvement, though it may be vital for that in the future one of the protagonists of the novel is measured with his fellow countryman.
On September 25, Anthony Joshua will face Oleksandr Usek, at 7:00 PM, in London, UK, a fight that will be broadcast on DAZN.
It is a mandatory defense of the title held by the British, the World Boxing Championship (WBO), which at that time was in the hands of Mexican Andy Ruiz.
Even if he wins this fight, Joshua can look for a new one against The Destroyer, who is shaping up for a fight in October or November.
