Curtain Call. Roy Jones Jr. defeats Scott Sigmon in what he calls his last bout (with a catch). Jones ends his 29 year career as one of the sport’s all time greats, claiming titles from Junior Middleweight up to Heavyweight and compiling a record of 66-9 (47 KOs). The only catch? He’ll come out of retirement if mma legend Anderson Silva will face him. #theboxingsociety

The Truth Hurts. Errol Spence Jr. drops, then stops Lamont Peterson after 7 rounds of boxing. Peterson showed he was game and landed right hands throughout, but Spence’s superior attack led him to victory. Good luck to both fighters moving forward. #theboxingsociety

Tonight. This is a solid card to kick off what is sure to be another good year of boxing. Easter Jr will give Fortuna (who weighed in at a surprising 136.8) serious problems with his length and power, and a mid-late stoppage is likely if he can bother Fortuna enough. In the main event, look for Peterson to test Spence’s boxing abilities early and battle at distance, while Spence will try to bother him with a body attack. Spence should get the better of most exchanges and could press for a stoppage in the later rounds if damage accumulates, but this fight will likely end up going the distance. #TheBoxingSociety is picking Easter over Fortuna by TKO (7) and Spence over Peterson by decision.

Vasyl ‘Hi Tech’ Lomachenko is named ‘Fighter of The Year’ by Ring Magazine. 2017 was a breakout year for Loma, as he watched his profile and p4p ranking rise while he led all three of his opponents (including top Bantamweight Guillermo Rigondeaux) to retire on their stools. He’s got the tools to continue his meteoric rise to the top of the pound-for-pound rankings, and his hype will continue to build if he continues to display the tricks he has. #theboxingsociety

January 12th, 1944: Joseph William Frazier was born in Beaufort, South Carolina. After an amateur career that saw him capture Olympic Gold at the 1964 Games, Frazier turned professional in 1965. Using relentless pressure (from which his nickname “Smokin Joe” was derived) and a pounding left hook, Frazier quickly rose up the rankings at heavyweight, capturing his first belt in 1970 with a knockout victory over Jimmy Moore. This culminated in 1971’s ‘Fight Of The Century’ against Muhammad Ali. Frazier would take their first bout by UD, handing Ali his first professional defeat along the way. During this time, he was thrice named Ring Magazine’s Fighter of the Year (‘67, ‘70, ‘71). His rivalry with Ali only grew from there, and the two would go on to face each other twice more, in 1974 and 1975, both bouts won by Ali. He would also face George Foreman twice, both times losing by TKO. He retired in 1981 with a record of 32-4-1, his only defeats coming at the hands of Ali and Foreman. He would have turned 74 today. #boxingbirthday #theboxingsociety

January 10th, 1949: George Foreman was born in Marshall, Texas. He would go in to become a decorated amateur fighter, capturing a Gold Medal at heavyweight at the 1968 Olympic Games. Turning pro in 1969, Foreman fought his way to the top of the heavyweight division, winning the WBC, WBA, Ring Magazine and Lineal titles in a 3 round dismantling of Joe Frazier in 1973. He would remain undefeated until he faced Muhammad Ali in 1974’s ‘Rumble In The Jungle’. After his second loss in 1977, Foreman would retire, only to return ten years later with hopes of reclaiming heavyweight glory. That day would come on November 5th, 1994 when he defeated Michael Moorer by KO (10/12) to claim the WBO Heavyweight title. He retired in 1997 with a record of 76-5 (68KOs). He turns 69 today. #boxingbirthday #theboxingsociety
