Anthony Joshua (16-0, 16 KO’s) defeated Dominic Breazeale (17-1, 15 KO’s) last night via KO 7th round, and successfully defended his IBF world heavyweight title, but the night started off with a hard hitting middleweight bout.  Chris Eubank Jr (23-1, 18 KO’s) defeated Tom Doran (17-1, 7 KO’s) by 4th round KO, and held on to the British Commonwealth title.  Eubank proved to have a very strong chin, and Doran was way overmatched in the power and speed department.  After the fight, Eubank called out the man himself “GGG”, declaring that he is ready to fight him.  Matin Murray also took on George Groves in a Super Middleweight bout.  Groves took the easy win over Murray in a lopsided unanimous decision with final scores of 118-110 on all three scorecards.

In the main event, Anthony Joshua was making the first defense of his newly acquired IBF heavyweight title.  It was a breeze for Joshua, as Breazeale offered almost no resistance.  Breazeale showed off a great chin early on, as he was getting peppered with combinations. Joshua’s speed for a heavyweight is unbelievable, and Breazeale just could not handle it.  AJ would settle down a bit in the middle rounds, and throw less pushes, perhaps not to tire himself out, bu was still hitting Breazeale at will.  The end would come in the 7th round, when Joshua would land a huge right hand, followed by a left hook, which put Breazeale down for the count.  Breazeale takes his first loss of his career, as Joshua successfully defends his title.

Newly crowned IBF World Heavyweight Champion Anthony Joshua (16-0, 16 KO’s), will be making the first defense of his title on June 25th 2106.  The fight will take place at the O2 Arena in London England, and will be televised on SKY Box Office PPV for the Brits.  It has not yet been announced which American network will televise the fight (HBO or ShowTime), but one must assume that ShowTime will be the winner with there ShowTime International Series.  Joshua won the IBF World Heavyweight title back on April 9th, when he knocked out former champion Charles Martin in the second round.  Martin won the title by default anyway, when he defeated Vyacheslav Glaskov for the vacant title, after Glaskov suffered a knee injury in the 3rd round, and was unable to continue.

As expected, Anthony Joshua will defend his IBF World Heavyweight title against upstart Dominic Breazeale (17-0, 15 KO’s).  Beazeale is still raw and lacks in the stamina department.  He had a lot of trouble against Amir Marsour, who at the time of their fight was 44 years old.  Breazeale eventually knocked him out, but Mansour hurt him want times in their fight, and even put him down.  In the fight before that, Fred Kassi gave Breazeale fits as well, but he escaped with a narrow unanimous decision victory.  Breazeale’s resume is not an impressive one, and the casual fan would probably not recognize any names on it.  Now he gets the opportunity of a lifetime against Joshua for a world title.

Also added to the card is Martin Murray (32-3-1, 15 KO’s) VS George Groves (23-3, 18 KO’s).  This will be a good one!  After losing to Gennady Golovkin, Murray moved up to Super Middleweight.  The move was a successful one, and after piling up 3 wins in England, Murray even fought for the WBO title against Arthur Abraham.  Murray lost the fight via split decision, but many thought he should have been the winner in hostile Germany.  George Groves lost to Badou Jack back in September of 2015, but has been busy since.  He won two fights on January 30th and April 9th of 2016, and will be defending his WBA International Super Middleweight title against Murray.

Tomorrow night, Saturday January 23 2016, boxing returns to FOX.  Danny “Swift” Garcia (31-0, 18 KO’s) takes on Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero (33-3-1, 18 KO’s) for the vacant WBC Welterweight Title.  It is yet another chapter of the Puerto Rico VS Mexico rivalry.  The fight will be televised on FOX at 8pm ET, and take place at the Staples Center in Los Angeles California.  The co-feature is a welterweight bout between Sammy Vasquez (20-0, 14 KO’s) and Aaron Martinez (20-4-1, 4 KO’s).  Also on the card, a heavyweight bout, as Dominic Breazeale (16-0, 14 KO’s) takes on Amir Mansour (22-1-1, 16 KO’s).  Here is the breakdown and predictions:

DANNY GARCIA

-Record:  31 – 0 – 0, 18 KO’s

-Weight Class:  Welterweight (147 lbs)

-Height:  5′ 9″

-Reach:  69″

-Born:  3/20/88 (age 27)

-Notable Fights:

  • Amir Khan  —  Win, TKO 4th round (12), 7/14/12.  (Won WBAsuper & TheRing Junior Welterweight titles)
  • Zab Judah  —  Win, Unanimous Decision (12), 4/27/13.
  • Lucas Matthysse  —  Win, Unanimous Decision (12), 9/14/13.

Since his career making performance against Lucas Matthysse, Garcia has not been great. He escaped with a highly questionable decision over Mauricio Herrera and a narrow split decision over Lamont Peterson.  In between those fights he KO’d Rod Salka who never stood a chance, and was hand picked.  After Peterson, Garcia KO’d Paulie Malignaggi, who is also well past his prime, and was never at Garcia’s caliber anyway.  Garcia needs a strong performance to stay relevant, especially with the move up to welterweight.

ROBERT GUERRERO

-Record:  33 – 3 – 1, 18 KO’s

-Weight Class:  Welterweight (147 lbs)

-Height:  5′ 8″

-Reach:  70″

-Born:  3/27/83 (age 32)

-Notable Fights:

  • Andre Berto  —  Win, Unanimous Decision (12), 11/24/12.
  • Floyd Mayweather  —  Loss, Unanimous Decision (12), 5/4/13.
  • Keith Thurman  —  Loss, Unanimous Decision (12), 3/7/15.

After beating Andre Berto, Guerrero got the chance to fight Floyd Mayeather.  He failed miserably.  Another big name on his resume was Keith Thurman.  He lost that fight as well.  Guerrero has not been able to beat the “A” opponent.  This could very well be his last chance at a big fight like this, so it will be interesting to see how he reacts to the pressure.

PREDICTIONS:

  • Dominic Breazeale  —  def  —  Amir Mansour  —  via  —  KO 9th round
  • Sammy Vasquez  —  def  —  Aaron Martinez  —  via  —  TKO 5th round
  • Danny Garcia  —  def  —  Robert Guerrero  —  Unanimous Decision
