With the year coming to a close, we take a look back at some of the best action on the Channel Of Champions in 2017.

Our six selected scraps range from a colossal World Title fight in Las Vegas, an all-Mexican brawl, to a local derby in Newcastle. Sit back and enjoy...

1: Canelo v Golovkin

Where else could we start? On September 16th, Middleweight monster Gennady Golovkin defended his WBC, IBF and WBA 'Super' World Titles against Mexican star Canelo Alvarez.

The result was a captivating contest that you couldn't take your eyes off. Plenty were left disappointed with the draw verdict, but a rematch looks likely for 2018 to settle the score.

2: Vargas v Berchelt

Miguel Berchelt became the new WBC World Super-Featherweight Champion after stopping Mexican rival Francisco Vargas in the 11th round last January.

With his vision badly affected, Vargas was bloodied and bruised by the time the referee Raul Caiz intervened to stop the fight two minutes in to the penultimate session.

3: Woodstock Jr v Poxton

Craig Poxton is no stranger to an all-out war. After his barnstormer with Boy Jones Jr in February, he took on Lyon Woodstock Jr in Leeds on October 21st.

Early on, Poxton suffered a nasty cut in the second round but battled on against the younger, sharper man. Woodstock Jr landed the cleaner work over 10 rounds and became WBO European Champion.

4: Valdez v Marriaga

Unbeaten Featherweight Oscar Valdez was made to work in this WBO World Title defence back in April. Relentless Colombian Miguel Marriaga pressured Valdez in every round but ultimately fell short.

In the 10th, he landed a flurry of punches but Valdez responded with a hard right to put him down en route to a tough decision victory in California.

5: Leather v Foot

Local Super-Lightweight rivals Josh Leather and and Glenn Foot shared 12 enthralling rounds at the Metro Radio Arena in Newcastle on November 11th.

There was a feiry build-up before the fight and the fans were not left disappointed, with Leather edging a close points win to win the IBF European belt.

6: Ramirez v Hart

WBO World Super-Middleweight Champion Gilberto Ramirez put his title on the line against confident challenger Jesse Hart in September.

The hard-hitting slugfest began with Ramirez dropping Hart in the second round. The American showed great heart to rally back but Ramirez proved to be a clear winner in a fan-friendly affair.
