By Tre Berry III🖊️ | 03/30/2020

The finale towards crowning an Undisputed Middleweight Champion of the world took place on September 29th, 2001.  Crafty and ruggedly skilled longtime Middleweight World Titlist 🇺🇸Bernard “The Executioner” Hopkins (39-2-1,  KO👊) was looking to make the 14th defense of his IBF title, and his first defense of the WBC strap that he had won from 🇺🇸Keith Holmes a fight prior, while Puerto Rico’s legendary wrecking-ball 🇵🇷Felix “Tito” Trinidad (40-0-0, 33KO👊👊) was looking to defend his WBA Middleweight Title that he ripped away from 🇺🇸William Joppy earlier that year by way of 🔥fiery destruction and malice.  Continue reading “Boxer’s Greatest Nights (Hopkins Takes His Place As a Legend, Defeats Trinidad to Become Undisputed Middleweight Champion) 📺”

Boxers Greatest Nights (Errol Spence Dethroning Kell Brook in England) 📺

The date was May 27th, 2017, and after being heavily avoided as a highly touted prospect, 🇺🇸Errol Spence Jr. would finally get his shot at a World Title as he would face IBF Welterweight Champion 🇬🇧Kell Brook, who was undefeated at the weight. Putting the hardware to the side and putting everything into consideration, I would make the case that these were the two premiere Welterweights in the world during that time.
