OUR LIVE FIGHTS
SHAWN PORTER v KELL BROOK
IBF welterweight title
Brook has seen several world titles fail to come to fruition so now he finally gets the chance to join the Wincobank winners and the small band of British fighters flying the flag. First of all he needs to overcome Shawn Porter, one of America’s new breed of up-coming starts. He took the IBF belt from Devon Alexander and defended it in style against Paulie Malignaggi to hit the headlines, while Brook has worked his way up – and stayed - to the position of mandatory. He tells us he can move up a gear or two when and if he needs to and many are expecting this to bring the best out of him. Both of these two are unbeaten, Brook can box and punch with precision while Porter piles on the pressure and puts the opponent on the back foot – and says Kell won’t be able to cope. Winning a world title in America is a major achievement, so will Brook put his name up in lights? Find out…
SAKIO BIKA v ANTHONY DIRRELL
WBC super-middleweight title
In the super-middleweight world, the immedaite rematch is becoming the norm. This time the champion is Sakio Bika, the challenger is Anthony Dirrell and yet again, there is unfinished business.These two met in December in what turned out to be a controversial draw and again the champion was the last to go looking for it. Biko feels he was robbed when he put Dirrell down late on only to see the challenger claim a low blow. Not only would the knockdown have given Biko the win, but had he not had a point taken off for continual roughness, he would still have won and the WBO and he would have moved on. Dirrell, the youngest brother of Andre, is unbeaten in 27 while Bika has been around since challenging none other than Joe Calzaghe nearly eight years ago. There is bitterness but is there a passing of the baton? Well the winner could well defend against George Groves next!
OMAR FIGUEROA v DANIEL ESTRADA
WBC lightweight title
Just over a year ago this title belonged to none other than Adrian Broner but he moved up, the belt was vacated, he was beaten and then, Omar Figueroa came in. Via the international, then interim titles he won the WBC strap by beating Jerry Belmontes. The champion, from Texas, is unbeaten but not the biggest name in the American game but will beating a Mexican make its mark? Well Estrada will hope not. He is not the biggest name in his country’s game either and this is the first time he crosses the border to box. He carries a big KO percentage though (68%) and with the champion even better (70%) this is not one to be missed because it is unlikely to go the distance, whoever you think is going to win!
ALSO ON THE BILL
10 Rnds heavyweight
Is he the next American heavyweight to hit the scene? Well, Wilder by name and Wilder by nature, so we are waiting to find out. He has won 31 out of 31, knocked them all out and is ranked highly in all four governing bodies. He is the number one contender to the WBC belt held by Bermane Stiverne but his record is not full of top-class opponents so could he beat Tyson Fury? Well, he says so, so maybe this weekend's showdown is merely a warm-up to bigger and possibly better things.
6 Rnds lightweight
There is a lightweight world championship on the line, but it will not be heading back to Hull... yet. The Olympic gold medallist and decorared amateur is making his American debut as a pro in a six-rounder that should show more of his promise. His last fight, a points win over Craig Woodruff, was his toughest to date but after taking time out due to his father's illness, Campbell is back on track looking to kick on. You'll see the best bits.
6 Rnds Super-middleweight
The names of Froch, Groves and DeGale dominate the super-middleweight scene but many expect this lad from Liverpool to take over the reins down the line. His brother Paul fights away from home for a world title in that division in September so Callum makes his pro debut across the pond to get a taste of what many say will come. He has a six-rounder and you can see the highlights on our show.
Shawn Porter v Kell Brook is live on Sky Sports 1, from 2.00am, Sunday, August 17, with Amir Khan and Ryan Rhodes our studio guests.
