Boxing Hits Both Channels on Saturday Night. Comment on the better card. How the fights will play out: (Credit: Fightnights.com)

On Showtime:
Time: 9:00pm ETDevon Alexander vs. Shawn Porter - IBF welterweight titleco-feature Zab Judah vs. Paul Malignaggi - welterweightAustin Trout 26 W 1 L 0 D 14 KOs vs. Erislandy Lara 18 W 1 L 2 D 12 KOs - light middleweightSakio Bika 32 W 5 L 2 D 21 KOs vs. Anthony Dirrell 26 W 0 L 0 D 22 KOs - super middleweight

Are all four fights being shown? My cable guide shows a 4hr 30min time frame. I'll take
  • Porter SD
  • Judah-Malinaggi-DRAW
  • Trout UD (Close)
  • Dirrell UD (Wide)
It will be a tactical night of boxing. For pure skill Trout-Lara will be the best fight on the card. Judah-Malinaggi will be sloppy, It will be close. Paulie I think won't win it and he will rant about politics in boxing going against him. If Judah doesn't crumble like he did against Khan this is a 50/50 fight.

These fights will be close, except for the Direll fight, look for debated and maybe controversial scoring in at least two of them.

On HBO:

Time: 9:45pm ETJoseph Agbeko vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux - WBO WBA super bantamweight titleco-feature James Kirkland vs. Glen Tapia - light middleweightMatthew Macklin 29 W 5 L 0 D 19 KOs vs. Willie Nelson 20 W 1 L 1 D 12 KOs - middleweight

Tactical main event. Agbeko gets picked to pieces by Ringo.. Kirkland KO's Tapia. Nelson outboxes Macklin. Results:
  • Agbeko UD (Wide)
  • Kirkland KO 5
  • Nelson UD (Wide.)
For me. Action-wise, the Kirkland fight stands out. However, overall I think Showtime has the more competitive and better card.

Riding with Shawn Porter. I think he beats Devon. Devon hasnt won a notable fight in a few years. Randall Bailey?? He should have gotten the L vs Kotelnik and Matthyse. i think Shawn Porter cashes him out here.

I think Zab Judah stops Paulie Malignaggi.

Lara gets a split decision against Trout.

Sakio Bika Beats Dirrell by SD.

On HBO


Rigo comfy D12 against Agbeko.

I dont know enough about Glenn Tapia or Willie Nelson to really comment on those fights.



Showtime KO 5 over HBO. Showtime's card is much better. Looking forward to December 14th too.


I like your predictions, only one I might ride against is trout Lara, Lara has good pop and could put trout down, but Lara also has been known to be chinny.

He beat Maidana. How is that not a notable win, I haven't seen anything from Porter to make me believe he was ready for this stage or that he could beat a fighter like Devon. Porter is a poor man's Shane Mosley, instead of fighting like the Mosley of old, he fights like the Mosley of now. If Devon loses to him then he should be on gatekeeper status


Maidana was between trainers and looked sooo bloated.. I didn't put any weight into that fight man, he looked completely uninspired to be at 147.

You talking like Marcos was some ripped stud before lol. You got more excuses then Dolomite's girl after a paternity test... Last time I checked a loss is a loss no matter how it happens.....we still haven't seen all these improvements Robert has made to Marcos but let's cut the shit for a minute. Khan, Devon, and even Victor gave Maidana hell til he folded. Maidana looks great against brawlers put him in with somebody who can give different looks, box and with a ring IQ and he's in trouble. I'd take Devon over Maidana right now.
