Maidel Sando vs Genc Pllana Live Stream Free Boxing TV: We might not see Alvarez and Pacquiao until 2021. Watch Live Mostly that’s because the business of boxing remains polluted and the uncertainty about when fans can fill seats again makes finalizing a third installment of Canelo-GGG or another Crawford title defense, for example, complicated for economic reasons.
But boxing’s biggest names and heaviest hitters have been waiting on the sidelines for the right time to return to the ring and that time has arrived as the boxing schedule this fall is full of consequential fights featuring notable names that should excite casual and hardcore fans alike.
While we’ll take whatever we can get in this weird world of sports trying to operate safely during a pandemic, it should be noted that several fighters on our top 10 pound-for-pound list disappointingly do not appear to be returning to action immediately—we’re talking about Terence Crawford, Manny Pacquiao, Canelo Alvarez, and Gennadiy Golovkin. Golovkin and Crawford could return in November, but their next bouts haven’t been finalized.
In the meantime, we’ve got enough to look forward. As usual, you’ll have to shell out big bucks for many of the fights we highlighted since they’ll be pay-per-view affairs.

A return to the ring for Iron Mike was rumored earlier this spring when social media clips of the 54-year-old looking spry in the gym made waves.
We outlined the good and the bad behind a potential Tyson comeback in May so we won’t rehash that here. Hardcore boxing fans will likely yawn, if not moan and groan about this one. Jones is 51 years old and hasn’t fought in two years, plus it’s been a decade and a half since his reign over the light heavyweight division ended. Tyson’s last professional bout also happened 15 years ago. So pardon those of us who aren’t giddy to see two olds slug it out over eight rounds.
That being said, we also realize the hype for this pay-per-view (that’s supposed to benefit charity) will be considerable just because it features Tyson. Hurricane Laura wreaked havoc on the city of Lake Charles and rendered their Civic Center inhospitable for this year’s National Championships. This came on top of the pandemic which already nearly wiped out
