Boxing schedule for 2022: Every major fight night, date and venue

This year has produced some incredible results, and it's only going to get better.

Boxing has overcome the global pandemic via unanimous decision in 2022.

May 5 was perhaps the biggest outcome of the year though as Canelo Alvarez tasted defeat to Dmitry Bivol for the WBA light heavyweight title.

The Mexican was outpointed and all three judges scored it 115-113 in favour of Bivol to inflict the second defeat of Canelo's career.

The four-division world champion is returning to the ring in September although it will be against Gennadiy Golovkin in a third fight rather than Bivol.

Elsewhere, fans were treated to the 'Biggest Female Fight in History' between Katie Taylor and Amanda Serrano with the former coming out on top via split-decision.

Fury crushes Whyte

Tyson Fury continued to prove his worth as an all-time heavyweight great with victory over Dillian Whyte in April.

The Gypsy King dominated proceedings, forcing a stoppage in round six with a brutal right uppercut to the chin of his Brixton opponent.

Fury - who made his second defence of the WBC title - said he will now retire but there is one more huge fight out there for him and he'll be keeping tabs on the winner of Usyk vs Joshua.

Anthony Joshua will bid to become a three-time unified heavyweight champion against Oleksandr Usyk in Saudi Arabia.
