WE are heading for a massive few months of boxing with another mega fight announced last weekend.
Gennady ‘GGG’ Golovkin needed points to see of Sergiy Derevyanchenko and become a world champion once again – but we will be seeing Tyson Fury swap boxing for wrestling as he makes an appearance on WWE Raw.
Get all the latest boxing news and updates here…
GENNADY GOLOVKIN is world champion again, but he was booed by fans after he was pushed all the way by a resilient Sergiy Derevyanchenko.
The Kazakh phenom, 37, claimed the vacant IBF middleweight title after a close points win over Derevyanchenko at Madison Square Garden in New York.
GGG reclaimed the belt he once owned during his eight year reign as unified champion, but was hurt during the bout and forced to battle until the final bell.
And New Yorkers inside MSG even booed the champ – to the outrage of boxing fans watching on TV.
CONOR McGREGOR told Eddie Hearn to dance for him, after the former UFC champion was offered a return to boxing by the promoter.
Matchroom Boxing Chief Hearn admitted he would love to work with McGregor, who made his pro debut in the ring two years ago, losing by tenth round stoppage to Floyd Mayweather.
But The Notorious responded in typical fashion, tweeting: “Dance for me Eddie.”
Hearn, who promotes ex-heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua, is more than happy to bust a move for McGregor, as he admitted to iFL TV it would be a “dream to promote him.”
TYSON FURY is set to make his WWE in-ring debut against Braun Strowman at their Crown Jewel show in Saudi Arabia.
The ex-heavyweight world champion stunned on Friday when he appeared on SmackDown’s first taping on the Fox network.
He confronted the Monster Among Men and was carted away by securitywhile sitting alongside wife Paris and family at ringside.
And according to the reliable Wrestling Observer, the gigantic pair are set to finally clash at the pay-per-view event this month.
Fury will also appear on tonight’s episode of Monday Night RAW, where he will have an open mic and lay into Strowman.
It is understood this will set up a colossal clash between the two at Crown Jewel which will air on 31 October.
