The Canelo Alvarez vs Dmitry Bivol is easily one of the best boxing matches of 2022, considering the outcome was something that few fans expected.

Canelo Alvarez is ranked as the world’s best active super-middleweight by The Ring, ESPN, TBRB and BoxRec. And as a result, many expected him to defeat Dmitry Bivol.

However, the Russian proved to be too strong for Canelo Alvarez, and he eventually stunned everyone with a one-sided victory.

Dmitry was more than ready to take down Canelo when the two met at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. He utilized stick-and-move tactics to destroy his opponent and avoid counter-punches.

It was a big win for Dmitry as all three judges scored in his favour.

2. Artur Beterbiev Vs Joe Smith 

Artur Beterbiev Vs Joe Smith’s boxing match took place on June 18 in New York City. Even though no one was surprised when Artur Beterbiev emerged victorious, it was an entertaining match from the start.

Artur Beterbiev began dominating his opponent from the very first punch he threw and did not stop until the end. It took Artur just two rounds to defeat Joe Smith and unify three light heavyweight titles.

The massive win increased Artur Beterbiev’s record to 18 wins. The Montreal-based Russian boxer has defeated all his opponents through knockouts.

3. Errol Spence Jr. Vs Yordenis Ugas 

Yordenis Ugas has been in the boxing game for quite some time and has recorded victories against top boxers like Manny Pacquiao. However, he had no chance against Errol Spence Jr. when they met in Arlington, Texas, on April 16.

Spence continued with his dominant performance in the ring as he outboxed, outworked and beat Yordenis Ugas.

Yordenis is the first elite boxer Spence has faced since becoming a professional. But with such an amazing performance against one of the best, the future is truly bright for him.

Spence’s bout with Yordenis Ugas was undoubtedly one of the best boxing matches of 2022.

4. Shakur Stevenson Vs Oscar Valdez

Shakur Stevenson and Oscar Valdez faced each other on April 30 in Las Vegas. This was a bout between some of the best boxers in the world at the moment.

We all know that Oscar is a two-time Olympian who had an amazing run at the start of his career, winning his first 30 matches. Twenty-three of those victories were through knockouts.

Oscar Valdez’s impressive record did not scare Shakur Stevenson, who went into the match with the aim of emerging victorious.

Shakur took control of the match from the start and made his opponent look like an amateur. Shakur’s brilliance was rewarded by the judges who scored in his favour.

5. Devin Haney Vs George Kambosos 

George Kambosos is a boxing legend who has faced some of the best boxers in the world. On the contrary, Devin Haney is still a young fighter who is trying to make his name known in the boxing world.

Devin Haney and George Kambosos met in the ring for the first time on June 5 in Melbourne, Australia. Haney showcased his talent as he defeated the former title holder.

Their rematch was one of the highly anticipated rematches of 2022. And once again, Haney outclassed George to win the bout via unanimous decision.

The Devin Haney Vs George Kambosos bout is arguably one of the best boxing matches of 2022.
