Boxing Schedule 2017

Written by

Here's your first boxing schedule for 2017, covering HBO, Showtime, BoxNation, Sky Sports and PBC.

Compared to the dramatics of 2013, 2014 and 2015, 2016 wasn't exactly a banner year for boxing.

Will 2017 be much better? So far, it's looking that way.

Our boxing schedule, which will be updated every 72 hours, showcases the high-profile remaining in December and confirmed fights for 2017.

Are you excited about 2017?

Will we see Manny Pacquiao vs Vasyl Lomachenko or Terence Crawford? What about Anthony Joshua vs Wladimir Klitschko, David Haye or Deontay Wilder?

Gennady Golovkin vs Canelo Alvarez anyone? How about Amir Khan vs Kell Brook? And will boxing produce its own Ronda Rousey.

Will Floyd Mayweather come out of retirement?

And what's next for Andre Ward? Will he rematch Kovalev or is Adonis Stevenson on the horizon?

And will 48 year-old fight legend Roy Jones Jr finally hang 'em up in 2017?
