Boxing is starting to pick up again after a slow few months. This weekend saw three world titles get defended although none were on American television.

American television really gets back in gear this weekend with Showtime showing the IBF super middleweight title fight between champion Lucian Bute and Glen Johnson and HBO showing what may be the best fight of the year with James Kirkland vs Alfredo Angulo.

So lets take a look back at the weekend that was and look forward to a very action packed weekend.
