One of the world's top heavyweights sees action tonight as Adonis Stevenson puts his WBC belt on the line against Dmitry Sukhotsky at Colisee Quebec in Quebec City, Canada.
Sukhotsky, 22-2 (16), comes into tonight's contest riding a four bout win streak and has a world title challenge under his belt already, a points loss to Juergen Brahmer in 2009.
The 33 year old Russian has never been stopped and is heavy-handed but that's about where his positive attributes stop as he prepares to challenge for the WBC championship.
37 year old southpaw Stevenson, 24-1 (20), is greatly feared in the division for his concussive punching power and has won three of his four world title contests inside the distance.
However, in his most recent outing, Stevenson ran into contender Andrzej Fonfara, who proved able to take the champion's punches and pressed the aging slugger hard in the later rounds before dropping a points decision.
It's a safe bet that Team Sukhotsky will have studied the film of that fight and will look to better Fonfara's results. More...

Manchester’s Anthony ‘Million Dollar’ Crolla is considered lucky to be alive following an attack on Tuesday evening. The boxer was chasing burglars that had ransacked his neighbour's house when one of them hit Crolla over the head with what is thought to be a slab.
Crolla suffered a fractured skull and broken ankle in the incident and is currently in Royal Oldham Hospital. He has since had stitches to a cut on the forehead and an operation to fix the two breaks in his ankle.
Crolla was in training for the biggest fight of his career against WBA Lightweight champion Richar Abril of Cuba, in Manchester on 23 January. The fight has obviously been postponed but Crolla is still determined to become a world champion.
Get well wishes to Anthony from all at SaddoBoxing.

We start on Friday night at Illusions Theater in San Antonio, America where Erislandy Lara, 20-2-2 (12), outpointed Ishe Smith, 26-7 (12), for the WBA light middle title.
Southpaw Lara simply was too quick and elusive for Smith, who briefly held the IBF crown in 2013, as the judges awarded the Cuban all three score cards by margins of 119-109, 119-109 and 117-111.
After the contest, Lara reportedly expressed his desire for a showdown with Floyd Mayweather Jr, but with "Money" himself making media headlines this week by calling for a clash with Manny Pacquiao, Lara is likely out of luck.
On Saturday, there were two big bills in America's Boxing capital of Las Vegas with British welterweight Amir Khan emerging as the big winner.
Khan, 30-3 (19), showed great maturity in successfully defending his WBC silver title with a brilliant performance against former two-weight world champion Devon Alexander, 26-3 (14), at MGM Grand casino.
Adding an intelligent approach to his already lighting-quick fists, Khan repeatedly baffled the southpaw Alexander, nipping in to reel off sharp combinations before heading back outside.
Alexander occasionally scored with single shots but Khan controlled the pace of the contest along with when and where engagements occurred, posting a 120-108, 119-109 and 118-110 shutout on the scorecards. More...

This evening features the unusual occurrence of two good fight cards taking place on the same night in the Boxing capital of America, Las Vegas.
MGM Grand plays host to a highly anticipated clash at welter between former WBA/IBF light welter titlist Amir Khan, 29-3 (19), and ex-WBC/IBF light welter and IBF welter champion Devon Alexander, 26-2 (14), for Khan's WBC Silver belt.
Alexander is coming off a ten round victory over Jesus Soto-Karass in June after being outfought for the IBF strap by Shawn Porter a year ago while Khan has won three straight after losing a WBC/WBA title clash to Danny Garcia in 2012.
Khan seems to have the momentum here and if he has truly matured under new trainer Virgil Hunter, will stay away from a brawl against southpaw Alexander.
If Alexander can cut down the distance Khan will likely seek to maintain and hit the target, Khan could be drawn into an unprofitable slugfest. More...
