A pretty good card considering the crap we have been getting. Easy to call the winners I think. However, the losers might do a little better than expected.

Vargas vs. Lopez: Vargas by decision. Lopez may have his moments, but if rounds are close, the "O' record of Vargas will be taken into consideration by the judges.

Morales vs. Matthysse: Morales by Split and perhaps controversial decision. Lucas just can't get a break, and with the WBC bending over backwards to get Erik another title, I think Matthysee almost needs a KO to win. I think the best thing that Matthysse gets out of this fight on the cards is a draw. (And in reality, Lucas should have won by about 9-3.) Another negative is that in his fighting style, sometimes he is not busy enough.


Alvarez vs. Gomez: Mismatch and beat down Alvarez TKO 7

Maidana apparently already was offered the fight and turned it down to stay in Argentina.

I believe Matthysse is really sick. This was a great opportunity for him. No way he's lying.

Im pretty sure we will hear something by the end of this weekend (hopefully). Maidana was probably going to make a nice grip for the Guerrero fight, but of course it was called off. As we all know, money talks...so he may want to make up for the money he would've made against Guerrero, by rematching Morales on a huge PPV undercard. At this point, he is in shape to fight, and his opponent is obviously a last-minute bum, so this offer may not be a deal-breaker. All it takes is the right amount of money, and Im sure GBP will have his ass on a jet en route to the states by Sunday evening.

Im pretty sure Oscar and Shaeffer dont want to 'f' up this card by getting everybody excited about Morales/Matthysse, just to throw a bum in there at the last minute due to the circumstances. Besides, this PPV is going to put some nice money in GBP's pockets, so making an exciting last-minute adjustment to the card will only attract more last-minute PPV buyers. If they saw the first Morales/Maidana fight, and their only chance to see the rematch would be through ordering the Star Power card, then thats a few more guaranteed sales.
