Another very nice weekend of boxing is here. Definitely something for everyone. From lightweight aka super featherweight to heavyweight. From boxers to brawlers. Domestic and international. Hopefully you fight fans are looking forward to this weekend as much as I am.

I'm only mentioning the more high profile bouts, but I plan on watching everything that's going to be shown. Who are your picks to win?

Friday:
Showtime's Shobox: Jessie Vargas vs. Lanardo Tyner - No disrespect to Lanardo Tyner, but many fight fans expect Jessie Vargas to continue his steady rise up the ranks of the Lt. WW division by adding Lanardo Tyner's scalp to his belt. Who knows though, we saw what happened with Cloud and Campillo last week. Nonetheless, I'm picking Vargas (even though I really should have checked out some of Tyner's earlier fights).

Showtime's Shobox: Deandre Latimore vs. Milton Nunez - 154lb clash. Great division and Latimore's apparently well regarded. I'm sure that I've seen him box before, but the memory circuits are failing me.

FNF: Juan Carlos Burgos vs. Cristobal Cruz - same division as Adrian Broner and Burgos is apparently in the top ten. I'm not familair with him, or Cruz, but let's see what they're about.
FNF: Edgar Santana vs. Manuel Perez

Saturday:
Epix - Start your afternoon off (for those over here) with the heavyweight clash- Alexander Povetkin vs. Marco Huck. This is being billed as a clash of boxer/brawlers. Povetkin is apparently no longer being trained by Teddy Atlas, so that's a bit of intrigue (it might be a temporary thing, not sure). I'm interested to see what the cruiserweight Huck can do. We've had a few cruiserweights move up to heavyweight with success.

HBO: Devon Alexander vs. Marcos Maidana - yup this is it. Boxer vs. Brawler. Accused vs. Accuser. I've got to go with Alexander and I think that he'll either get the late TKO, or a wide decision.
HBO: Adrian Broner vs. Eloy Perez - also another very interesting fight. Broner's looked very solid and at times sublime recently, but was that because of the level of opposition? Eloy Perez seems to be a step up and also seems very confident of his abilities. Good stuff. Going for Broner (please don't do that stupid "comb my hair" shit), but may the best man win. Also can't forget that Broner's newly won title is at stake.
