Must Bet Boxing Matches Coming in 2023
Upcoming Boxing Matches
- When: January, 2023 – April, 2023
Jan. 7 – Gervonta Davis vs Hector Luis Garcia
Nobody scares Gervonta “Tank” Davis. In his last three bouts, Davis has beaten then 26-0 Mario Barrios, then 22-1-1 Isaac Cruz, and then 14-0 Rolando Romero.
Hector Luis Garcia will bring a 16-0 with 10 knockouts record into the ring to take on Davis. If Gervonta gets by Hector, and he should, Tank will set up a massive fight against Ryan Garcia in April, a bout that both parties have already agreed to terms.
Jan. 28 – Artur Beterbiev vs Anthony Yarde
18-0 with 18 knockout wins, three-belt light heavyweight champ Artur Beterbiev throws down against British lightweight Anthony Yarde at Wembley Arena in Yarde’s backyard.
Yarde has a great 23-2 record with 22 knockout victories. Yarde lost a bout via stoppage, though, which doesn’t bode well for him in this.
If Beterbiev gets by Yarde, Artur will try and set up a massive payday bout against Dmitry Bivol for Bivol’s WBA strap.
Feb. 3 – Emanuel Navarrete vs Liam Wilson
Wilson is 11-1 with 7 knockout wins. He’s up against it big time versus Emanuel Navarrete, one of the top pound-for-pound fighters on the planet.
Navarrete is 36-1 with 30 stoppage wins. Emanuel’s lone loss happened way back in 2012. So we should expect Navarrete to easily dispatch of Wilson.
Feb. 18 – Adrien Broner vs Ivan Redkach
Broner versus Redkach won’t be for a title, but it should be a great fight. At one point, Adrien was one of the best in the welterweight division. Broner is 34-4-1.
Two of Broner’s losses happened in his last four bouts. Both losses happened before 2020, in 2017 against Mikey Garcia and 2019 versus Manny Pacquiao.
Redkach is 23-6-1. Ivan is on a 2-match losing streak, a 2020 fight against Danny Garcia and a 2021 bout versus Regis Prograis. For sure circle this fight. It will be a fantastic match.
Mar. 4 – Josh Taylor vs Jack Catterall II
Taylor is the undisputed super lightweight titlist. Josh is 19-0 with 13 knockouts and beat Catterall via split-decision in the first fight.
We must hand it to Taylor. Instead of looking for an easier opponent, Josh is running it back versus Jack in the very next bout. The first fight happened in February this year.
Catterall is 26-1 with 13 knockout victories. Not only that, but both these guys are British. So the fight, which takes place at The SSE Hydro in Glasgow, should be epic.
Apr. 15 – Gervonta Davis vs Ryan Garcia
At first, Ryan Garcia said he’d tune-up before facing Tank. But Garcia changed his mind, insisting he’d have a much better shot versus Gervonta if he trained up to the fight.
Whether he does or not is up for debate. Ryan has a crazy high boxing IQ. He will also have big time reach and height advantages over Gervonta.
If the bout is close, the pair could set up boxing’s next great rivalry. If Davis dominates, expect Garcia to call it quits. No doubt, Ryan Garcia versus Gervonta Davis will be one of 2023’s most electric boxing matches.
