By: Hans Themistode Is it fair to name current WBO Welterweight champion Terence Crawford the best fighter in the world? It sure is. Deciding who exactly is the best pound for pound fighter is a subjective matter, opinion based, but often filled with plenty of facts to back your initial thoughts. With titles reigns at the three separate weight classes including an undisputed run at 140 pounds, Crawford makes a legitimate case for being considered every and anyones pound for pound number one fighter in the world. Egidijus Kavaliauskas, a two time Olympian will get his chance this Saturday night to hand him his first defeat in New York City, at Madison Square Garden. It is an unlikely scenario, but this is the sport of boxing where anything can happen. This New York City based card has a ton of storylines and huge fights on the docket. Of course the main event featuring Crawford is a headline grabber. Teofimo Lopez and Richard Commey in the co-main event could be a main event all on its own. Don't forget about Michael Conlan vs Vladimir Nikitin either. That contest just screams main event. In short, this is a must see card. Often times something unexpected happens at these fighting events. Fighters such as Terence Crawford and Teofimo Lopez might be who the fans pay to see, but more times then not, they aren't who they leave talking about the most that night. You fully understand how that goes, don't you? A young, relatively unknown fighter on the undercard enters the ring on fight night and dominates his competition. What ensues are a series of questions. “Who is he?” “When is he fighting again?”When Super Lightweight prospect Josue Vargas steps into the ring, that is the impression he often leaves fans with. From the moment the opening bell rings, it becomes ostensible just how good Vargas is. There isn’t anything mundane about the personality of Vargas as his bravado protrudes from aura no matter where he is. It isn't simply that he is a great young fighter, but he also seemingly has the support of not only his hometown but also from those who have come across him.“A lot of supporters bought tickets online, from me, from instagram, my neighborhood,” said Vargas. “I’ve got people flying in from Virginia. I’m definitely going to try to steal the show, that’s the plan.”Stealing the show is something that Vargas has become accustomed to doing throughout his young career. There is a reason why he was first signed by Floyd Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions before ultimately signing with TopRank. The kid just seems to have all of the requisite tools to become a star.“I want to be the new face of Puerto Rico.” His resolute and bold attitude has given him good reason to believe that he can follow in the footsteps of some of the very best boxers out of Puerto Rico. Determining whether or not Vargas will be successful in his attempt to become the new face of Puerto Rico is a question that is too difficult to answer at this very moment. However, something that is not arduous to see, is the talent that he possesses. “Stay tuned and witness greatness this Saturday night, December 14th.”Josue Vargas has gained the attention that he has been asking for. Now, it is his job to keep it and continue to put on a show, starting this Saturday night at Madison Square Garden.The post Remember The Name: Josue Vargas appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.

By: Oliver McManusWith boxingon hold for the foreseeable future, at least in the form we know it, BoxingInsider is taking a look at top prospects to keep an eye on when the sportreturns. The five names below cover bantamweight, super bantamweight andfeatherweight: they all, naturally, have different ceilings to their abilitybut, most importantly, they all pack some entertaining punch!As with last week we will start proceedings witha sumptuous Uzbek talent. Shakhobidin Zoirov is another pearlfrom the far-flung country with Gold at the 2016 Rio Olympics and 2019 WorldChampionships in Yekaterinburg. Both those triumphs came at 52kg and southpawnow competes in the slightly heavier bantamweight division (53.5kg). Havingdebuted in April last year, Zoirov made light work of Anthony Holt (5-4-1): aslam-dunk straight left hand inside of 20 seconds and that was that. Since thenhe’s moved to 3-0 in equally breezy fashion.Elie Konki, as it stands, is one of the more advanced fighters on this list, to date,  having captured the EBU-EU bantamweight title in December. The Frenchman, a Rio 2016 competitor, first caught my attention with a real nip-and-tuck encounter against Benedikt Croze for the French bantamweight title in 2018. In that fight he was forced to work under pressure but looked comfortable on the back-foot and dug deep to grind the win. Since then the 28 year old defended his title, with relative comfort, on three occasions and hand Sebastian Perez (12-0-1 at the time) his first loss to claim the EU strap.Comparisons between Dennis McCann and NaseemHamed are as frequent as rainfall in Quibdo, Colombia (the world’s rainiestcity, in case you didn’t work it out). There are undeniable similarities andthe influence is clear: whilst McCann has some polishing work to do youwouldn’t expect anything less from a 19 year old prodigy. Guided by FrankWarren, you can be assured that he’ll take the right steps at the right timeand he’s already tested the durability of four of his six opponents. Despitefacing journeymen, again to be expected, he does so in an eye catching mannerthat ensures they leave the ring wondering just what they’d been up against.Another southpaw making the list is 21 year old RaymondFord who has looked every bit as ‘Savage’ as his nickname would suggest.A 2018 U.S Golden Gloves champion there was significant clamour for hissignature on a promotional contract and it was Eddie Hearn who secured it. Partof a new dawn with Matchroom USA the, once, Olympic contender has reallysettled in the paid ranks with five wins inside nine months of his pro debut.That included a four round pasting of, noticeably teak tough, AleksandrsBirkenbergs and two well worked stoppages in Phoenix and Providence. Don’tsleep on him because Raymond Ford looks cut out for the very top.Musashi Mori is yet anotheryoung fighter coming out of Japan that looks like a superstar in the making.One bonus, you could say, of boxing in Japan is that, almost certainly, by thetime you’re ready to burst onto the world scene you remain very much a hiddengem. Mori is one such name having already worked his way up the WBO rankings byway of their Asia-Pacific featherweight belt. At 20 years of age and 11-0 sincehis debut in December 2016 the southpaw is consistently maturing in the ring.The word coming out of Japan, at the start of the year anyway, was that hewould contest a bona-fide world title in 2020 and, whilst that may well be onhold, the ambition certainly isn’t.The post Prospect Watch: Bantamweight, Super Bantamweight, and Featherweight appeared first on BoxingInsider.com.
