Two Huge Upcoming Events From the World of Combat Sports

Mar 12, 2023

The world of combat sports has been on fire recently. Back on February 12th, we were treated to one of the greatest MMA fights in history when Islam Makhachev and Alexander Volkanovski squared off in Perth, Australia for the right to be called the UFC’s pound-for-pound king. In the end, it was the Dagestani fighter that scraped a unanimous decision victory, a victory which wasn’t enough to usurp Alexander The Great from the top of the pound-for-pound charts.

Then, on March 5th, the GOAT returned. Jon Jones is many people’s consensus pick as the greatest mixed martial artist of all time, and he returned to the Octagon to make his heavyweight debut three years on from his last fight, a victory over Dominick Reyes at UFC 247 in December 2020.

He immediately challenged for the heavyweight title against Cyril Gane, the French striking sensation who formerly held the interim heavyweight championship. Yet, online sportsbook Bodog’s UFC betting odds made Jonny Bones the favorite for the bout, despite his long layoff and the fact that it was his first fight at a weight above 206 pounds. In the end, the bookie was proven right. Jones made light work of his French opponent, submitting him in the first round and securing his legacy as the greatest MMA fighter that’s ever lived.

It’s crazy to think that those two mega-events were barely three weeks apart. But don’t worry fight fans, the fun isn’t over yet. In fact, it’s just getting started.

When it comes to combat sports, boxing is undoubtedly at the top of the list in terms of global popularity. Tyson Fury, Canelo Alvarez, and Anthony Joshua are some of the current roster’s more well-known names, but a championship match may draw millions of viewers.

As a combat sport, boxing requires that competitors be separated into weight classes to ensure a level playing field. There are a total of 17 different weight classes in boxing, with the Strawweight division being the lightest, whereas the Heavyweight division is reserved for the largest boxers.

Boxers of various sizes are separated into distinct categories based on their weight. The purpose of weight classes is to ensure that contestants are facing off against opponents of similar skill levels, that there is adequate safety equipment available, and that fights are fair. Professional boxing for men now features 17 different weight divisions, ranging from strawweight (105 lb) to heavyweight (200 lb+).

Is Keoma-Ali Al-Ahmadieh’s Commonwealth Games medal the start of something special?

Dec 28, 2022
A. J. Riot

There’s a new name coming through the ranks of Canadian boxers. Yes, Keoma-Ali Al-Ahmadieh is a young man of great potential, and he is really looking to be the real deal, with a Commonwealth Games medal already to his name.

The next big thing in Canadian Boxing?

At only 19 years of age, Al-Ahmadieh is still learning his trade. He still boxes as an amateur, where there is no need to rush him. Al-Almadieh is 1.72 cm high and fought in the Featherweight category (54-57 kg) at the recent Commonwealth Games – although there are obvious reasons why he might not stay at that weight, which we come to later.

Al-Almadieh has plenty of potential. Of that, there is already no doubt. But with all the potential, should come a note of caution.

There’s been a drought of real top-quality Canadian boxers over the past 30 years, so it’s imperative that too much weight isn’t placed onto the shoulders of a young man just trying to find his way. Since the glory days of Lennox Lewis and Donovan Ruddock, there has been little to shout about.

Yes, Canada has seen names like Adonis Stevenson come and go in that time, but by and large, the cupboard has been bare.

The Canadian public love boxing and they have been longing for another superstar to come along that they can get behind, with both vocal support, and financial for those who like a bet. Whether it be placing a boxing bet on a local fighter, or even on the blockbuster start to 2023 where Chris Eubank Junior is 2/5 to beat Liam Smith with the best Ontario sportsbooks, Canadians who love a boxing bet, would get behind their man.

Al-Almadieh – Already a Commonwealth Games medal winner

At the tender age of 19, Canadian boxing prospect Keoma-Ali Al-Ahmadieh already has a Commonwealth Games bronze medal to his name. And it could have been more, as the young prospect was forced to pull out of his semi-final fight against Northern Ireland’s Jude Gallagher for medical reasons.

Medical reasons are the official line stated, but it was due to Al-Ahmadieh not being able to make the weight. So could Al-Ahmadieh have got a different color medal if he had made the weight? Quite possibly.

His win over Keevin Allicock of Guyana in the quarter-finals was the highlight of the competition, although it wasn’t greeted with joy in all quarters, as the 4-1 split decision results in the Canadian’s favor was greeted with boos from the crowd. But everybody has their own view on how a fight went, and his victory over the Guyanan wasn’t treated with the same displeasure across the board.

The alternative view of that fight is that after a slow start, Al-Ahmadieh took over in the latter stages, and it was his strong finish that earned him the victory via a split decision. Split decisions in boxing are just that. Some go for you, some against you. And just because your opponent has the more vocal supporters in the arena, doesn’t mean they are right.
It could even be argued that Al-Ahmadieh’s win was all the more impressive, as he had to show a lot of heart to come back from behind and win in the face of such intimidation. It’s a great sign of character moving forward.

Sadly, we will never know now if Al-Ahmadieh would have beaten Jude Gallagher, and possibly gone on to win the gold medal. But one thing that is for sure, is that the two previous wins over Charlie Senior (3-2) of Australia in the preliminary round, and his win over Keevin Allicock (4-1) in the quarter-finals were impressive.
If anything, the win over Senior was the harder of the two. Well, at least that’s how the judges scored it!

Potential Rivals

Moving forward, there is potential for rivalries now. Jude Gallagher is only 21, and Allicock is 23. There will be plenty of opportunities for the men to fight in the future, like at the 2024 Paris Olympic Games, and this will at some point give Allicock and his entourage the opportunity to prove that the Commonwealth Games split decision was wrong.

Also, Jude Gallagher won his semi-final and his Gold Medal match by walkover. The Northern Irishman has already stated that it wasn’t the way he wanted to win a gold medal at the Birmingham Commonwealth Games, and he will want to set the record straight, and would no doubt relish a fight with Al-Ahmadieh somewhere down the road.

If either of these fights doesn’t happen in the amateur ranks, they could be fights that are made professionally at a later date. It could just now be the case, that with a bit of patience, Canada now has another boxing superstar on its hands.

The fights boxing fans want in 2023

As we approach the end of a remarkable year for boxing, fans have a chance to reflect. The season has given us some amazing results that helped shape the most popular divisions, not least of all at heavyweight. Oleksandr Usyk confirmed himself as the main man in the division after Tyson Fury. The Gypsy King proved Dillian Whyte is still off the pace needed to be a contender.

We will remember 2022 as the year that professional boxing bounced back from the devastating effects of the pandemic. COVID-19 hampered the schedule in 2020 and parts of 2021. There were doubts over its ability to recover in 2022, with many suggesting the sport should work through the summer in the absence of the FIFA World Cup and ease off during the winter months when COVID is most dangerous. But there were no interruptions as the year passed without any drama witnessed over the last two years.
