The Fightful boxing newsletter returns after a nearly month-long absence. If I may be selfish for a second, the tragedies and disasters that have left my home island of Puerto Rico in utter ruin and have not been to be as up to date and find the time to continue the newsletter. I was in Europe during the week Hurricane Maria devastated the island and I appreciate all the kind words and support from fans, readers, fellow Fightful co-workers and everybody in between. For that, I am truly grateful.
But even in these dark times of terrorism-level shootings and entire nations being wiped out by mother nature, we turn to sports for a much needed escape as millions of people are right now trying to rebuild their lives from the ground up. Some people have lost loved ones and have faced unimaginable horrors. The boxing community is deeply saddened by the many recent tragedies and I hope that this newsletter would provide you, the reader, an informative and entertaining read on the latest in the world of boxing.
Here on this edition, the World Boxing Council is currently having its 55th annual convention, where many important decisions were made regarding some big name fighters. The governing body ordered a rematch for Canelo Alvarez vs. Gennady Golovkin and has made a decision regarding Deontay Wilder and who he will fight on November 4 after Luis Ortiz failed a drug test a couple of weeks ago.
Below is the table of contents for the October 5 Fightful boxing Newsletter:
