Call me crazy, but something just tells me that Berto's gonna get handled again. Karass has been beaten on a few occasions, but it's not like he has anything to lose at this point. Berto on the other hand, has been beaten soundly, twice...this is pure desperation for him.

I'm not sure if Hunter's training has completely set in, so we'll still see some old Berto habits if he finds it too easy to land on Karass, and hopefully he makes it back to the corner so Virgil can correct him.

On another note, I'm ready to see Thurman/Chaves! If Chaves can take Thurman's punch early, then I think he'll give us something to see. Hopefully he's first in this fight, rather than waiting around too long and possibly getting floored.

If Berto loses this fight, he will be a shoe in for Golden Boy Boxing on the Fox Sports network.


Thurman should win, but I think Thurman constantly looking for the knock out might hurt him.

professor who you got:
Joe “The Future” Hanks (21-0, 14 KOs) faces Andy ‘The Destroyer” Ruiz Jr. (19-0, 13 KOs) at The Venetian Macao’s Cotai Arena in Macao, China.

Ruiz just doesn't look the part but damn that dude can fight.

Too close to call on both!

Hoping for Soto-Karass to win. I don't think it goes to the cards. I will pick him to win (KO 10)

Thrman/Chaves, I will take Thurman by TKO in 7 with a lot of ups and downs in a war!

Do not feel confident in my predictions though.

Doesn't Thurman look like he is can be related to the Debarge family?
