By Derek Bonnett The New Year is always preceded by some excellent boxing cards in Japan. Each year, some of the nation’s greatest talent, which is considerable at this time, steps into the ring end things with a bang. On December 29, reigning WBO super flyweight champion, Naoya Inoue took on former two-time champion Kohei Kono at Ariake Colosseum in Tokyo in what would be his sternest opponent since dethroning Omar Andres Narvaez in 2014.
The Executioner's Swan Song The Executioner's Swan Song
By Derek Bonnett Many people wanted to believe. Bernard Hopkins had turned back the clock so many times in his illustrious career, that even at the age of fifty-one and nearly two years of ring inactivity, fans wanted to think that Joe Smith Jr. would be easily dissected and defeated to complete the final chapter of one of boxing’s greatest storylines ever. Hopkins turned back the clock for fans by ditching his silly "Alien" moniker and resuming his role as boxing’s "Executioner",

Lomachenko Virtuoso Against Walters Lomachenko Virtuoso Against Walters
By Derek Bonnett Bob Arum’s two thousandth boxing promotion which pitted Vasyl Lomachenko against Nicholas Walters in the Ukrainian champion’s first defense of the WBO super featherweight title was seen by many, including myself, as the second best match-up of 2016, right on the heels of Kovalev-Ward. Kovalev-Ward delivered twelve rounds replete with fierce world class action, a knockdown, some wrestling, a comeback, and a whole lot of controversy, which ended up marring a pretty

Gonzalez Battles to Fourth Divisional Title Gonzalez Battles to Fourth Divisional Title
By Derek Bonnett The talk going into the September 10 clash between WBC super flyweight champion Carlos Cuadras and Pound for Pound number one fighter Roman Gonzalez centered on one possibility: would Gonzalez surpass the great Alexis Arguello as a four division champion?

When the final scores were read, history was indeed made, but Nicaragua’s hero endured more pain and struggle
Corner Saves Brave Brook from Golovkin Corner Saves Brave Brook from Golovkin
By Derek Bonnett The actions of Dominic Ingle at the O2 Arena in London, England should not overshadow those of the two excellent middleweight boxers in the ring on September 10. Gennady Golovkin’s search for his twenty-third straight KO was greatly challenged by a very game effort from IBF welterweight champion Kell Brook. The Special One remained just that even after his corner opted to throw in the towel in round five due to concerns for Brook’s eye.

By Derek Bonnett British neophyte Charlie Edwards met John Riel Casimero at the O2 Arena in a bid to lift the IBF flyweight title. Casimero, making the first defense of the title he won back in May, was favored, but some sentimental money backed Edwards to become the fifteenth current reigning world boxing champion from the United Kingdom.
