03/04/2012 Round up of latest Boxing news

Enzo to defend British Crown in rematch

Enzo Macrinelli faces a rematch against Shane Mcphilbin after picking up a controversial win two weeks ago. The British title holder statedafter the fight that he was happy for a rematch to take place, obviously Macrinelli himself knew how close he was to being knocked out in the first round of their twelve round encounter. Had it not been for the timekeeper missing 47 seconds Mcphilbin was surely on route to knockout Macrinelli. I think Macrinelli will find this tough but will be aware of the threat Mcphilbin holds, it will be a close fight but I do feel the Welshman will get it right this time.

Abraham back on track

Arthur Abraham has landed himself a title shot after a twelve round win at the weekend over Piotr Wilczewski. Abraham will have his eyes set on WBO title holder Robert Stieglitz, but he will have to await his outcome as Stieglitz is due to fight challenger George Groves. Abraham looks to be back on track for a title after battles with Carl Froch and Andre Ward. Abraham will find things tough if he does take on either Groves or Stieglitz but for me can get the job done, it just seems he struggles to take it to the next step against the elite Super Middleweights.

Munroe to step up against Quigg

British Champion Scott Quigg will defend his crown against Rendall Munroe on june the 16th. All eyes will be on the unbeaten Champ after recent talks of him going up against Irish young gun Carl Frampton. Munroe is a former Commonweath and European Champion and will be no push over for Quigg, either way one of Ricky Hattons boys will surely have to step up in their next fight and challenge Frampton.

In other news and 2 points I have to agree with,

A great article on with Sugar Ray Leonard as he has urged Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao to get it on for the sake of their own legacies,

And a great article in this month’s Boxing Monthly by Graham Houston regarding the rematch between Bernard Hopkins and Chad Dawson. Houston explains this could be a step to far for the 47yr old after his controversial win in their last encounter, and regardless to the ability and upset record that Hopkins has proven in the past, Dawson has to be the favourite here.Hopkins and
