Conor McGregor is an elite MMA fighter, but stands no chance in a boxing match against Floyd Mayweather.

Anthony Joshua has been labelled the "present and future" of the heavyweight division by Eric Molina ahead of the Briton's fight with Wladimir Klitschko. Undefeated IBF world champion Joshua will put his strap on the line and fight for the vacant WBA belt when he meets Klitschko at Wembley on April 29. Klitschko had long been the dominant force in the division prior to his defeat to Tyson Fury in November 2015, but Molina - defeated by Joshua in December - believes the 41-year-old's time has passed.
While 2016 started off the way that featherweight up and comer Marcos Bonilla wanted, the year ended in disappointment. Decision wins over Rudy Morales and Izic Fernandez for Combate Americas had Bonilla on an overall three-fight winning streak, before a third round TKO to AJ Bryant at CXF 5 derailed his momentum. “I felt like I was a little bit on the shelf, so I took a fight (against Bryant) in December, and everything was going well, camp was good, and sure enough the week of the fight I got the flu,” Bonilla told MMAWeekly.com. Bonilla admits while he felt an initial sting in the loss to Bryant, he was able to move past it because he felt like he performed as well as he could have until the end.
