Boxet Hasan Kardaki and trainer Liam Wilkins have been suspended for this incident involving Nick Blackwell. Blackwell did not have a license to fight after he was in a coma after his bout with Chris Eubank Jr. Blackwell then sparred recently and had to have surgery to reduce swelling on his brain.
After winning the WBO heavyweight title on Saturday, Joseph Parker is looking to fight Deontay Wilder in 2017. Parker beat Andy Ruiz in a huge fight in the heavyweight division on points. With the win under his belt a unification belt could be the best way to go, for both him and Wilder a fight with two belts on the line is would be huge.
Saturday night saw Dillian Whyte defeat Dereck Chisora in what was the most exciting fight of the evening. After this grudge match, both fighters are said to want a rematch. This could be another big heavyweight showdown to be seen in 2017. I think this could headline a stacked card. One thing is certain if this fight happens there will most likely be more fireworks as we saw over the past couple of weeks. The heavyweight division is already set to see some big fights in 2017 with AJ vs Klitscko and Haye vs Bellew, this could add to the full year of boxing that we could see.
