5 Star RatingReview by AllTheBestFights.com: 2015-05-09, Saul Alvarez vs James Kirkland was not a boxing fight, it was a war in which both fighters exchanged shot for shot from the first round and thanks also to an impressive finish it gets five stars!

2013 BOXING fight – James Kirkland vs Glen Tapia – full fight Video

3_stars_boxing_ranking_allthebestfightsReview: 2013-12-07, tough and brutal fight with both fighters exchanging shot for shot from the first bell, Kirkland and Tapia showed a lion’s heart and a stone chin but after watching this bout twice we think it is just “close to get four stars“. Our decision is likely to be unpopular since many labeled this bout as “Fight of the Year 2013” but there is something missing or maybe because the looser was too passive in the last two rounds and we want to see an exciting battle by both sides and not a drama. The undefeated Glen Tapia ranked as the No.23 light middleweight in the world, entered the fight with a record of 20-0-0 (12 knockouts) while James Kirkland had a record of 31-1-0 (27 K0s=87% – Kirkland is not ranked as he hasn’t fought since March 24, 2012 when he faced Carlos Molina). Kirkland vs Tapia is on the undercard of Guillermo Rigondeaux vs Joseph Agbeko. Watch the video!

2_stars_boxing_ranking_allthebestfightsReview: 2012-03-24, the bout between Carlos Molina and James Kirkland has not been a particularly good fight but the disqualification is ridicolous (end of tenth round): two stars. Carlos Molina (19-4-2) entered as the No.4 light middleweight in the world while James Kirkland (30-1-0) entered as the No.5. Molina vs Kirkland is valid as WBC Light Middleweight Semi-Final Eliminator; undercard of Erik Morales vs Danny Garcia. Watch the video!

2011 best BOXING fight – Alfredo Angulo vs James Kirkland – full fight Video

4_stars_best_boxing_fights_of_2011_videos_allthebestfightsReview: 2011-11-05, Kirkland starts strong but after 28 seconds of the first round he is already down, so Alfredo Angulo tries to end the fight throwing a lot of punches in the second minute of the fight but James Kirkland survives and comes back in the last minute of the first round knocking down “Perro” Angulo! Then the fight goes on but we don’t want to unveil the result of the bout… We don’t believe that Kirkland vs Angulo could win “Fight of the Year” honors but it could be a candidate for “Round of the Year” thanks to the amazing first round. Alfredo Angulo (20-1-0) entered as the No.2 light middleweight in the world while James Kirkland (29-1-0) entered as the No.49 middleweight. Angulo vs Kirkland, semi-final eliminator for the WBC light middleweight title. Watch the video!
