2023 has been nothing if not full of surprises. From a wealth of Fight of the Year contenders to huge clashes that in other years would have died at the negotiating table coming to fruition, there’s been plenty to talk about this year. But a mixed martial artist may have sparked the most interesting conversation yet when former UFC heavyweight champion Francis Ngannou took WBC champion Tyson Fury to the limit, dropping a narrow split decision in their Oct. 28 clash. Fury held on for the win and in the process kept his planned bout with WBA, WBO and IBF champion Oleksandr Usyk alive.

Gervonta “Tank” Davis won boxing’s first “megafight” of 2023, stopping Ryan Garcia with a body shot in a April meeting of two of boxing’s brightest — and most popular — young stars. Devon Haney outlasted Vasil Lomachenko to remain undisputed lightweight champion in a tactical thriller in May. July delivered two more incredible showings, with Naoya Inoue blasting through Stephen Fulton to win two world titles in his first fight at super bantamweight and Terence Crawford handing Errol Spence Jr. a one-sided beatdown to become undisputed welterweight champion.

In another big showdown, Saul “Canelo” Alvarez. Alvarez defended his undisputed super middleweight crown against undisputed junior middleweight champ Jermell Charlo to close out September. Charlo was never competitive as Alvarez scored a knockdown and took a wide unanimous decision.

There’s plenty of action scheduled for November, but the biggest clashes come at the end of the month. David Benavidez will take on Demetrius Andrade in a Showtime PPV main event that could land the winner a fight with Alvarez and Katie Taylor will take a second shot at unseating undisputed super lightweight champion Chantelle Cameron in a rematch of their tremendous May clash.
