The seven best British boxing fights of 2021 including Tyson Fury’s win over Deontay Wilder and Chisora’s fight with Parker

BRITISH boxing is in for a bit of trouble in 2021 as world champions like Anthony Joshua, Josh Warrington, Terri Harper and Kid Galahad lose their world titles.

But some stars like Maxi Hughes, Savannah Marshall, Leigh Wood and Sunny Edwards jumped into the spotlight with their victories and great performances.

But some of the best games don’t always feature world championships, faultless performances or even a packed stadium.

Up and down the UK, there are brilliant bouts for regional titles, England and England titles and good old bragging rights every weekend.

We’ve seen inferior spring surprises, laners refusing to be beaten, synergies becoming stars, and away corners as a result.

But some of the best bouts are mostly fruitless. There are times when losers bravely walk away with equal trust and respect.

There have been chess matches and all-out wars that have left both men full of blood and glory.

It’s tough but SunSport managed to narrow it down to a handful of the best of 2021:


Tyson Fury vs Deontay Wilder 3 – 9 October – Las Vegas

Fighting fans of this generation often feel robbed of the old glory days of Rumbles in Jungles, Thrillas in Manillas and Brawls in Montreal but this is a great return and reminder of how the sport is. How wonderful this could be.

Both men were tied 2-2 for trips to the tarp that somehow somehow pulled their massive and broken bodies back a total of four times.

And then the Gypsy King went down to the well again to knock Wilder down and keep the WBC crown and claim his name at the top.

Wilder redeemed, Sugar Hill Stewart’s thrilling corner emerged as a bonus afterwards and everyone leaving was reminded of why these men – the heavyweight champions of the world – being at the pinnacle of all sports.

Troy Williamson vs Ted Cheeseman – October 9 – Liverpool

If brave Bermondsey Cheeseman is now retired at the age of 26, with a lovely young family and various businesses to enjoy, he leaves behind a great body any boxer would proud.

The Tony Sims-trained ace went through back-to-back fights with Asinia Byfield, Sergio Garcia, Kieron Conway, Scott Fitzgerald, Sam Eggington, JJ Metcalf and finally Williamson – all over the span of three years suffocation.

His record from that great run is WNDLWWL but everyone is worth going back and watching again.

The pirate’s seventh round alone was amazing as both men took the punishment but remained upright.

But Williamson – who bravely went to Cheeseman’s commercial and broadcaster – beat him roughly with a left hook in loop 10.

Joe Joyce vs Carlos Takam – July 24 – London

The 36-year-old Juggernaut was supposed to enjoy an interesting balance against the tough teak slugger who suffered defeats to Anthony Joshua and Derek Chisora, but it turned out to be a hell of a deal.

Joyce’s famous granite chin was tested numerous times in the opening five innings before he lifted and won in injury time.

It lacks the spectacle of Fury vs Wilder 3 and the bloody chess match of Williamson and Cheeseman, but the Copper Box is filled with gasps and groans as all Brit fans worry he’s going to beat him. his highest ranking in a horrifying disappointment.

Of course, the ice-cold Putney giant assured everyone that he had it all under control by then.

Sam Eggington vs Bilal Jkitou – September 10 – Coventry

This magnificence in the Midlands won’t seem out of place in Madison Square Garden or MGM, Las Vegas.

Mick Hennessy gave a thrilling title so popular, it was shown at a local movie theater shortly after.

Eggington – still only 28 – has had about three career contenders in his career of the year and he is at war once again with the unknown Frenchman.

Brummie claimed the decisive victory after 12 nonstop rounds in middleweight.

It’s a reminder that Hennessy – who often has to play the third fiddle ahead of Eddie Hearn and Frank Warren – can still make an excellent ball, when he has the right dance partner.

Anyone who watched the first clash will certainly support Channel 5 replaying it in 2022.

Jack Cullen vs Avni Yildrim – July 31 – Essex

Turkey’s middleweight has plenty of experience from losses to Chris Eubank Jr and Canelo Alvarez, so the heavyweight favorites will head to the UK and beat the British.

Little Lever’s Meat Cleaver – the man with the North Face tattoo on his shoulder after a drunken bet – did not support the move.

A group of Cullen’s friends and family paid hefty sums for EVERY TICKET to cheer on their local legend.

And he paid them back with a great performance to win on all three cards.

The 28-year-old Beanpole is one of Britain’s must-watch fighters as he has had dazzling fights with John Harding Jr, Felix Cash, Zak Chelli, John Docherty and Yildrim.

Joseph Parker vs Derek Chisora ​​- December 18 – Manchester

After the first season ended last May in favor of New Zealanders, few would like to see these two middle-aged millionaires talk trash and swap punches again.

But 37-year-old British ring icon Chisora ​​showed great fortitude as he survived three counts and still finished the fight on his feet and swinging for the rafters.

Parker, 29, with 10 pounds more muscle from the first clash scored a hat-trick of upper body shots that Del Boy couldn’t deal with.

One bent over beat Finchley by the knee and the other two clamped him back to the ropes where Howard Foster gave him 8 seconds to recover.

In fact, Parker is no closer to the world title, with Tyson Fury, Oleksandr Usyk and Dillian Whyte sticking with them for at least a few years.

So it just shows the fighting pride that both of them had to pointlessly smack each other and then share the Five Guys burger that Chisora ​​bought for everyone backstage.

When the Zimbabwe-born fighter retires, he’ll be missed and it’s unlikely we’ll see his likes again.

Katie Taylor vs Natasha Jonas – May 1 – Manchester

Nine years on since these two lit up the 2012 London Olympics, with Irish icon Taylor winning a gold medal, the pioneers meet again as pros.

Taylor has booked four lightweight world titles and his status is undisputed while Liverpool’s Jonas seeks revenge.

Over ten brilliant rounds – sadly only two minutes long in the women’s content – we witnessed constant squeeze and tuck action.

Jonas hit the target larger, Taylor scored more accurately.

In the end, the umpires inside the strangely empty arena scored 96-94, 96-95 and 96-95.

It’s not elite female boxing, it’s simply elite boxing.
