Boxing schedule for 2018 highlighted by Anthony Joshua vs. Joseph Parker

Business is booming for boxing so far this year. Coming off a destructive showing from Errol Spence Jr. in January, WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder made his presence known to the world with an emphatic 10th-round knockout of top challenger Luis Ortiz. Wilder (40-0, 39 KOs) struggled a bit at the start of the fight to find his range, but closed the gap late to pressure Ortiz and put on arguably the best fight of his career.

Now, things get interesting with unified heavyweight champ Anthony Joshua taking on Joshua Parker later this month. Plus, we see the return of Mikey Garcia when he battles Sergey Lipnets for Lipnets' junior welterweight title at the Alamo Dome in San Antonio.

Below is a running list of boxing main events for the 2018 year.
