Weekend Combat Sports Review:
Cinco De Mayo Weekend
In what has become a tradition, boxing has booked a big fight on the Saturday of Cinco de Mayo weekend that usually attracts the largest audience of the year. And recently, UFC has followed suit to present a card as well. Well this year, we got a treat.
WBC middleweight champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (47-1-1, 33 KOs) did what everyone expected him to on Saturday night in stopping Amir Khan (31-4, 19 KOs) in the 6th round to retain his WBC middleweight title at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Check out the entire fight here.
If you just want to see the homerun, here you go!!!
On Sunday afternoon, UFC Fight took place in Rotterdam, The Netherlands, the first event in that country. The main event was a match of two heavy hitting heavyweights, as Alistair Overeem knocked out Andrei Arlovski.
But the entire main card was pretty damn good with finishes up and down the docket. Check out the finishes here, starting with the main event.
Good weekend to be a fight fan.
