19. Big-Name Boxing
Boxing has returned with the likes of Top Rank already hosting events. But good luck trying to name any of the fighters who’ve taken to the ring so far. Shakur Stevenson is probably the most famous boxer to put his gloves back on. However, he definitely isn’t a household name just yet.
In sum, until the crowds return we’re not getting any big fights. Anthony Joshua’s title defense against Kubret Pulev is off until they can fill the 80,000-seat Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. With huge sums of money at stake, they won’t want to come back too quickly and miss out on the massive live gate.
