Review: 2007-02-17, if the second fight between Vazquez and Marquez did not win the title of “fight of the year of 2007”, it could win the match between Michael Katsidis and Graham Earl, valid for the interim WBO lightweight title. Katsidis was undefeated (21-0-0) and for the first time fought outside Australia. Katsidis knocks down Earl (25-1-0) two times at the end of the first round but during the second period, after another knock down suffered by the English boxer, is Katsidis to be counted: this bout was a real war, five stars!

Review: 2007-11-10, after beating Zab Judah, Cotto (30-0-0) defended his WBA World welterweight title against Shane Mosley (44-4-0). Although 36 years (9 more than Cotto) Mosley put the Puerto Rican under pressure playing one of the best fights of 2007: very tough fight, five stars! Watch the video!
Review: 2007-06-09, Miguel Angel Cotto vs Zab Judah was valid for the WBA World welterweight title. Judah (34-4-0) came from two defeats against Floyd Mayweather Jr and Carlos Baldomir (and a no contest), and choosing an undefeated and dangerous boxer as Miguel Angel Cotto was certainly not a wise decision…but the fight was amazing!

Review: 2007-08-04, Israel Vazquez and Rafael Marquez have faced twice in 2007, but the best fight between the two is the second, winner of the title “fight of the year” (Ring Magazine). Vazquez (41-4-0) had lost the first fight and wanted to regain his WBC super bantamweight title. This second fight was certainly a great battle and the third round was also named “round of the year” by Ring Magazine. Watch the video!

Review: 2006-09-23, the first fight between Arthur Abraham and Edison Miranda will go down in history of boxing for the incredible injury of Abraham, as though breaking his jaw in the fourth round, he managed to finish the fight! Abraham (21-0-0) defended his IBF middleweight title for the third time against the dangerous Colombian “Pantera” Miranda (26-0-0). Referee deducted 5 points at Miranda therefore the final decision was controversial… in 2008 they face a second time and Abraham win the rematch. Watch the video!
Review: 2006-12-02, Cotto vs Quintana was a great battle of boxing between two undefeated boxers (two knockdowsn). Miguel Angel Cotto (27-0-0), after having defended his WBO light welterweight six times, tried to climb the welterweight division facing Carlos Quintana (23-0-0), who came from the important victory against Joel Julio. Cotto vs Quintana was valid for the vacant WBA World welterweight title. Watch the video!
Review: 2006-08-05, Edwin Valero was one of most spectacular boxers of the new millennium, and also against Mosquera has played a very exciting fight. Vicente Mosquera (24-1-1) had won the WBA World super featherweight title the year before and defended the title in Panama (his mother country) against the undefeated Valero (19 fights, all won by knockout). Mosquera was knocked down two times but also “El Inca” Valero went to the canvas once (first time in his career). Watch the video!
Review: David Haye defended his EBU (European) cruiserweight title for the third time, title which had won in 2005 against Oleksandr Hurov, and in this fight he faced Giacobbe Fragomeni, undefeated boxer who had already won some important titles like the WBC International cruiserweight against Frederic Serrat; in fact Fragomeni gave Haye troubles with his pressing… Watch the video!
Review: Volodymyr Sydorenko vs Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym was valid for the WBA World bantamweight title and it was a battle between two undefeated boxers. Sydorenko (18-0-1) had won the WBA title in 2005 (against Julio Zarate) and this was the third time he defended it, Kratingdaenggym (24-0-0) fought for the first time out from Thailand and it is never easy to win a title in Germany. After a tough fight Sydorenko wins Poonsawat Kratingdaenggym on point. Watch the video!
