Best upcoming fights in January and February

The talk of the town has been Victor Ortiz taking on Devon Alexander on February 17’s PBC card on FOX. Even though its just over a month away, that is a long time to be waiting for a boxing event.

Lucky for you all, I have a few big fights to keep a look-out for.

January 20 (Showtime)

Errol Spence Jr. vs. Lamont Peterson (IBF welterweight title)

Spence is a heavy hitting southpaw who looks to become the best pound for fighter in the world, but first he must take care of business against a tricky opponent in Peterson.

January 27 (HBO)

Lucas Matthysse vs. Tewa Kiram (WBA welterweight title)

The always exciting Matthysse will try and capture a vacant world title against undefeated challenger Kiram.

February 3 (ESPN)

Gilberto Ramirez vs. Habib Ahmed (WBO super middleweight title)

Sinaloa’s world champion, Ramirez, plans to defend his crown against Ahmed and secure his status as the world’s best super middleweight.

February 10 (Showtime)

Sergey Lipinets vs. Mikey Garcia (IBF junior welterweight title)

After a two-year career interruption, Garcia has come back with the mind set of taking over boxing. The man’s stock is so valuable right now that even Oscar de la Hoya has made it his mission to sign the Ventura native.

February 17 (Showtime)

Danny Garcia vs. Brandon Rios (WBC title eliminator)

Coming off his first lost, Garcia will battle loud talking Rios in hopes to stay in the conversation of welterweights best.

February 17 (FOX)

Victor Ortiz vs. Devon Alexander

The comeback trail will only allow one of these two men to proceed, while the loser most likely calls it a career.  

Austin Trout vs. TBA

With no opponent scheduled lets just hope Trout does not get scratched from the card.

Jennifer Han vs. Lizbeth Crespo (IBF featherweight title)

El Paso’s sweetheart will finally defend her title after a few pushbacks due to injury.

February 22 (ESPN)

Joseph Diaz Jr. vs. Victor Terrazas

The former Olympian, Diaz has shown signs of being the next big thing and possibly the next “Golden Boy”, even though he didn’t win gold at the Olympics.
