did i miss any?


1. Mayweather/Guerrero - Not so much for the fight itself, but to see Floyd back in the ring. I love watching this man box. A thing of beauty. And an unmatched ring-IQ. Plus I enjoy the pageantry of a Mayweather fight...and even some of the nonsense. FM Sr. and G Sr. are already going at it hard. I find this bit of nonsense a slight entertaining but mostly...uncomfortable. Just think they are way too old for all of that. But I'm sure it'll help sell the fight. Oh yes, and I'm going on record now (something I never do this early, Prof) to say, Robert gets stopped within 10. TKO or on his stool. Floyd tires him by making him hunt and miss, takes him to the deep waters and drowns him. It'll look like the love-child of the Hatton/Mosley outcomes.

2. Hopkins/Cloud - I'm super-stoked for this one. I like B-Hop a lot, as a fighter and a person. And I'm a big history buff. If Bernard wins, he puts an extra bow on his legacy and retires with true legendary status. I like his chances. Too smart. Too slick. Too gutter. Cloud relies on his physicality. Bernard on IQ, ring generalship, and defense. I chose brain over brawn.

3. Canelo/Trout - Just wanna see this kid (Canelo) tested and in the ring finally with someone in his own weight class. Trout has the ability to win and all the advantages, imo. But if I'm honest, prior to the Cotto fight, there was a mental/emotional weakness about him. I think if he uses the win over Cotto as momentum and a confidence boost...he wins this fight. And maybe easily. Too big. Too fast. Too slick.

4. Garcia/Judah - Good, competitive match-up. It's a pick 'em fight. I like the mystery involved in this one. Which Judah shows up? The mentally weak one? The God-centered grounded one? And what about Garcia. Is there more to him than that left hook? Was he faking the injury? So many questions. Let's get 'em answered in the ring!

5. Mares/Ponce De Leon - I've grown to respect Abner Mares. I like how he went after the Donaire fight and insisted that GBP do their best to make the fight. Mares is likable and marketable. I want to see how he does in this new weight class.

6. Rigo/Donaire - Just really dislike Donaire. And everytime he or someone on his team opens his/their mouth, it makes him more unlikable. A year ago, he stated that he will fight anyone, even if they're on PEDs because he knows he'll beat them regardless...now he's singing a new tune. And every week its something else. He seems to really not want to get in the ring with Rigo. I actually think Donaire will win the fight. Rigo's last couple of outings were disappointing and I readjusted my opinion on who wins. However, I think Rigo will test Donaire and expose his flaws. He, like his countryman, Pac need a guy to come straight forward. A slick boxer like Rigo will probably make him look bad.

Not interested in Rios/Alvarado II. Slugfest for slugfest sake bores me. Sweet science. Anything else is just uncivilized. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/wink.gif)
