The weekend is almost here and while a lot of people will be getting 'jiggy with it' in the clubs/lounges/bars, I'll be watching the sweetest of sciences.
Here's some of what's on tap (there's a lot going on, but this is just what I'm planning on watching):

FRIDAY:
FNF-
Adonis Stevenson vs. Noe Gonzalez - 168lbs: A great division. Stevenson is another product of the proud, island nation of Haiti, by way of Canada (Berto and Pascal are two of Haiti's other prominent exports). Both fighters have one loss each and are probably going to do their best to keep it at that.

Eleyder 'Storm' Alvarez vs. Rayco "War"Saunders - 175lbs: Another division that always gets my attention. Alvarez is trying to remain undefeated against the (relatively), much more experienced Saunders

There will also be some heavyweight action, but I'm not sure if it'll be televised. Oscar "Kaboom" Rivas is the undefeated HW on the card. Never seen him fight, but if they do show it, hopefully he lives up to his nickname.

SHOBOX-
Jermain 'Bad Intentions' Taylor vs. Caleb 'Golden' Truax - 160lbs: Truax is undefeated, but Taylor's the favourite. I was never one of the people that thought that Taylor was as good as his press, but I have no idea if Truax's '0' is the result of fighting products from the "bum of the month" club.

Erislandy Lara vs. Ronald 'the Chosen One' Hearns -160lbs: One's the son of a legend and the other's yet another Cuban sensation. Lara arguably beat Paul Williams in his last bout. (Shout out to Ozzie Guillen. Batista's Jim Crow era country didn't produce the boxing talent that we're seeing from Cuba).


SATURDAY:
International (Denmark) approx. 3-4pm
James 'Chunky' DeGale vs. Cristian Sanavia - 168lbs for DeGale's European super middleweight title. Olympic Gold medalist James DeGale's one of my top boxers and I think that the one loss on his record shouldn't be there as, IMO, he won that match.

SHO-
Abner Mares vs. Eric 'Little Hands of Steel' Morel - 122lbs: Let's see how Mares looks after his last outing against Joseph Agbeko. Mares is moving up in weight.

Anselmo 'Chemito'Moreno vs. David 'Morita' De La Mora -122lbs: Both boxers have one loss. Nobody's trying to make it two.

I am really curious about the outcome of Lara/Hearns fight. I am expecting Lara to win, but careers of both of these guys are interesting to follow. Hearns is slowly becoming too old to make noise though but it would be good to see him in a good fight. Lara is force to be reckoned with and after what he did to P.Willy I would love to see him get a bigger payday and make a name for himself.

Yes man. I had accidentally posted it before I finished typing and I don't think that I had entered that bout. I edited it earlier today and now show his match's info. (Sat. afternoon)

Same here. He's also fighting at a heavier weight (if I'm not mistaken), so might we see a stoppage? Several interesting matches this weekend.

I was mistaken about Lara moving up in weight. Damn, what a hack of a poster I am.

Me too! Im more excited about this, than Jermaine Taylor. I'm sorry, but any guy that has had a brain bleed (Taylor), is definitely on grandfather time. Im not all that interested in seeing him "climb back into the ranks" due that serious injury, but hey, it's his career and it's boxing, so of course I'll be watching.

Same here. I'm the most interested in the James DeGale bout, but Lara/Hearns is definitely a must see.

Yup. Not an MMA fan, so I doubt that I'll watch that one. Got nothing against it, it just isn't my cup of tea.

Couldn't agree more. Pretty good boxing weekend chunky Lara mares and moreno who look like their heading for a clash. Good lineup
