Golovkin/Rosado: As I mentioned in the prediction thread, the easy prediction is, Golovkin by TKO. In my opinion, a body shot will be the start of that TKO. In the back of my mind, I feel that Rosado has this weird trick up his sleeve...let's see if he uses it correctly.

Me thinks that he (Rosado) will imitate this newly tested, "stick & move" boxer-like game plan, until he gets hit...then we'll see how he fairs. Golovkin is hittable, and his last opponent didn't have enough pop to get his respect. Rosado has pop (in his uppercut)...hopefully he doesn't completely lean on his power tonight. Golvokin needs to be off balance at all time, otherwise, he'll sit on his punches...and we all know how that ends.

Garcia/Salido: For some reason, I feel that this is TOO big of a test for Garcia. He's been in with somewhat decent opponents, but not ones who truly tested him. If he happened to look tested at any moments of his previous fights, its because he didnt step on the gas quick enough, which made him "appear" to be confused (as to how to to adjust) and reluctant.

Salido has pretty decent power and accuracy, and if anything, he'll be the aggressor tonight. Mikey usually catches his opponents in those lulling stages of the fight when they're either tired of trying to avoid his punch, or they're trying too hard to make him open up and fight. This one will remind me of Devalle vs Darchinyan a few months ago.

Martinez/Burgos: Im almost sure this one will be a barnburner, for what's its worth. I like Martinez in this, only because Burogs doesn't finish strong in most of his fights. If Burgos uses his height, then we may see something interested. As long as Burgos doesn't step straight back (like he usually does), then he may not be on the canvas tonight. Martinez has something to prove tonight as well.

I have no official predictions for these bouts. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

Martinez and Burgos are both known for stepping backwards with their heads straight up...so let's see who catches who first. Lol

Not sure who won the 1st round, I was in and out...but Burgos does have power. Both guys were throwing HARD.

4 rounds in the bank, and it could possibly be even...if not, then 3-1 for Burgos.

It would probably be easier to not even score this fight...somebody's gonna hit the canvas...more than likely it will be Martinez (whom I picked to win).

Who knows...

Martinez is leaning in on his way to the inside...bad move. Burgos could land an uppercut that will start trouble.

Martinez has no way of winning from the outside either.

Its easy to just give the 5th round to Burgos, because Martinez was swinging like kids at a playground fight...Im talking Kindergarten here.

Goddamn those left hooks to the body (in the 6th) from Burgos took ALL of the steam out of Martinez, but it was crazy because Martinez fought like a mad man after all of those body shots landed. Im confused here...either those body shots were landing a bit below the belt line, or Martinez is just an animal who doesn't mind getting hit to the body.
