We get it, Jake Paul isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. He and Anderson Silva are drawing attention tonight but there is actually a great boxer today who could be above the level of the fanatics. Here are a couple of matches to watch tonight if you’re trying to avoid YouTube boxing.
Alternative Boxing YouTube: JoJo Diaz and William Zepeda
One of the best fights of the night in any game is JoJo Diaz returning to face William Zepeda. The two fight on DAZN and promise a banger of a must-see fight in boxing. William Zepeda is undefeated at 26-0 and 23. His last win was his best as he defeated former world champion Rene Alvarado by unanimous decision. He has won a few Continental titles but is looking to break into the upper echelons of the heavyweight division.
JoJo Diaz is your favorite fighter. His record is not perfect, but he always comes and brings fights. At 32-2-1 (15 KOs), Diaz has been in the ring with some of the best. His only two losses came to top level opponents in Devin Haney, who only beat George Kambosos Jr. in a rematch for the lightweight title, and Gary Allen Russell Jr. Diaz also noted a couple wins over Tevin Farmer and Javier Fortuna.
If you’re staying away from YouTube boxing and want something a little higher level, this fight might be for you. But that’s not all…
High Rank Brings Some Battles
In addition to the DAZN card, Top Rank Boxing goes head-to-head with YouTube boxing and features one of the best fighters in Vasyl Lomachenko. After his victory over Richard Commey at the end of last year, Loma finally returned to work after fighting the Ukraine war and the Russian occupation.
With the prospect of a title fight with Devin Haney mentioned, Lomachenko is hoping to make a statement against Jamaine Ortiz, who is undefeated at 16-0. If a big win is in the cards for Lomachenko, it could set up a return to the title picture for the Ukrainian fighter.
But Top Rank has this trump card. In addition to Lomachenko, Bob Arum and company are loading the card with talents like Nico Ali Walsh, grandson of the late, Muhammad Ali. In addition to Ali Walsh, there are Olympic medalists and top prospects who are the future of boxing on the card. Olympians include Duke Ragan, silver medalist in the featherweight class, Troy Isley, bronze medalist at the 2017 World Championships, Haven Brady Jr. and Robey Ramirez.
So, if you’re a boxer but not a YouTube boxing fan, there’s still plenty of fun to watch tonight, and we’ve got you covered with some good stuff!
Friendly fighting fans. I watch a lot of fights and my wife informs me.
