Boxing schedule for 2019 highlighted by Canelo Alvarez vs. Daniel Jacobs, Errol Spence vs. Mikey Garcia

Amanda Wescott/Showtime

After 2018 gave us some great fights and amazing knockouts we will remember for years, 2019 may be even bigger. There's a chance we get an undisputed heavyweight champion if Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder are able to reach an agreement. But we're also set to see business pick up at welterweight, where a ton of the young guns are finally getting marquee matchups they deserve.

We started 2019 with a bit of business in the welterweight division as Manny Pacquiao dominated Adrien Broner for an easy decision win that could set up a Floyd Mayweather rematch. Now, we have plenty of big names still to look forward to the rest of the year.  In February, Keith Thurman returns from a near two-year layoff when he battles Joseito Lopez. But March may be where we see welterweight pick up the most as Shawn Porter dukes it out with Yordenis Ugas before the mega PPV between Errol Spence Jr. and Mikey Garcia.

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