The Most Thrilling Boxing Matches of 2021 So Far

Introduction

2021has been a big year for boxers and boxing fans. Some of the greatest boxers fought for the most prestigious titles. Behind these matches, years of athletic preparation, technical power and endurance lead the players to fight both in and out of the ring. With extremely high tensions, the matches kept the spectators on their feet. With unanimous decisions causing disruption in press conferences, the public certainly got value for money.

Fury vs Wilder 3

One of the most eagerly anticipated fights was the boxing final between Tyson Fury and Deontay Wilder. In fact, it was one of the toughest matches with back-and-forth action from both fighters. Initially, Britain's Fury had more technical power and athletic brilliance. However, in round 10, Wilder managed to break free by knocking Fury out. Thus, Wilder was declared champion.

Canelo vs Plant

Not only was there action in the ring, but the public also witnessed tension during their press conference. At the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Mexican Canelo beat Plant in the title reunion. Thus, he became the undisputed and sole super middleweight champion in the 11th round. The 31-year-old Mexican won the IBF belt, adding it to the WBA, WBC and WBO belts he already held. This had never happened before super middleweight. Although, this fight was a thrilling contest, hitting the jackpot in new online casinos can provide that same rush.

Joshua vs Usyk

The bigger they are, the more noise they make when they fall. Anthony Joshua weighs 109 kg, but his status in modern boxing goes far beyond the scales. In fact, when the king is knocked off his throne, the uproar is deafening. Boxing has a new overturned-beat. Oleksandr Usyk, a professional Ukrainian boxer, completely overturned all expectations and beat Anthony Joshua on points with a unanimous verdict (117-112, 116-112,115-113) becoming the new WBA, IBF and WBO heavyweight world champion.

Valdez vs Berchelt

A superb strategy, allowed Valdez to become the new super junior lightweight WBC champion dethroning the favourite Miguel Berchelt with a KO in the tenth round. The fight, hosted at the MGM in Las Vegas, was one of the most brutal knockouts. In fact, Valdez never allowed his rival to enter the match. Alacran's reign ended with his seventh WBC title defence.

Estrada vs Chocolatito 2

A scandalous verdict denied glory to Chocolatito. At the American Airlines Center in Dallas, judges proclaimed Estrada the winner. However, a lot of damage has been done to the career of an outclassed-man who deserved yet another victory. The judges inexplicably awarded the Mexican Estrada for a split decision, allowing him to reunite the WBC and WBA super-fly belts with the following cards: 115 to 113, 113 to 115 and 117 to 111.

Conclusion

It is clear, the above-mentioned boxers are some of the world's greatest fighters. Unfortunately, there can only be one winner and unfortunately, on many occasions we have even seen fighting can go beyond the ring. However, both the winner and the loser have incredible athletic preparation skills that very few athletes have. Now, all we have to do is wait for a rematch to see if the reigning champion can hold on to that magical title.
