Recently Tyson Fury announced that due to an injury his rematch with Ukrainian Wladimir Klitscho will be moved out of the month of July and instead will take place on a different date. However, Don’t let this dull your July, there are still some great cards for the month.

The first of these said great cards is Sergey Kovalev v Isaac Chilemba. If you want to see Kovalev’s last tune up fight before the huge bout with Andre Ward in November then tune in on July 11th and you can get a taste of how Kovalev is looking before he locks horns with Ward.

The heavy hitting Russian has the power and ability to make a great fight, and Isaac Chilemba possesses the solid fundamentals to make it competitive.

5 days after the Kovalev Chilemba bout the most solid of all the cards occurs. The 16th July card has Terry Flanagan defending his WBO world title against Mzonke Fana in what should be a thrilling encounter as Fana aims to deal Flanagan the first loss of his pro career.

The main fight on this bill isn’t the only one with potential to be exciting, as Super Bantamweight defensive prodigy Guillermo Rigondeaux meets Jazza Dickens in another title defence.

On the same night as the Flanagan v Fana card Heavyweight elite Deontay Wilder goes up against Chris Arreola in what should be an action packed match up. Wilder always manages to put on a good show for the fans and it will be interesting to see if he can make a good case for an Anthony Joshua bout.

Don’t immediately write Arreola off either because he knows what its like to be in with the elite having faced off against Vitali Klitschko in 2009.

As we get towards the latter stages of the month of July the good fights don’t stop coming as WBC Light Heavyweight world champion Adonis Stevenson plans to defend his title against Thomas Williams Jr. Stevenson has an impressive record of 27-1 with his most notable victories coming against Chad Dawson and Tony Bellew.

The challenger, Williams Jr will want to step up for this bout in order to claim a respectable victory and add a big name to his resume, and he won’t be short of confidence after that 2nd round KO of Edwin Rodriguez. On the undercard Chad Dawson will be going toe to toe with Eleider Alvarez.

Dawson is the favourite having had more experience and fought against better fighters, although Alvarez shown some real quality in that win against Isaac Chilemba and he may stage an upset on the 29th. If Alvarez manages to do so he could land a big fight with Jean Pascal.
