It appears to be a fairly uneventful weekend of boxing before a decent string of interesting cards . . . however, there are a few interesting fights this weekend, including 2 litmus tests of sorts.
Hassan N'Dam N'Jikam v Giovanni Lorenzo= Litmus test #1. Lorenzo's only losses have been to Sturm, Sylvester and Raul Marquez. He has never been stopped. If the undefeated N'Dam (Last Name is Spam) can defeat Giovanni impressively, it may mean it is time for a shot at Sturm . . . or could he be taking a trip to Mexico for a shot at SMartinez? N'Dam N'Jikam UD
Marco Huck v Ran Nakash= Classic case of an undefeated fighter, who has fought nothing but bums his entire career, running into a seasoned pro. Huck TKO 9
Robert Helenius v Samuel Peter= Litmus test #2. Peter (coming off his drubbing at the hands of The Siamese Sister Klit back in September) is an interesting challenge for the 14 and Zip Helenius. Peter needs this victory to rebound. He aint no pushover. Will Helenius fall into the trap of attempting to out Klit a sister? Could spell doom for him. But an impressive victory would certainly send a clear message to The 2 Headed Klit and Haye. Helenius UD
Giovanni Segura v Ivan Calderon= The 36 year old Ivan's last stand. Calderon has been an amazing champion. You can't count him out of this but Segura is an uncharacteristic beast at this weight class. This one is in Mexico. Segura knows Calderon can't hurt him. Seems like a recipe for an early twitching Calderon, though I hope he can pull off the victory somehow. Segura KO5
Krzysztof (can I by a vowel) Wlodarczyk v Francisco Palacios= A coupla palookas pounding it out for a worthless strap in the land of head cheese. Although all he has done is KO a series of bums, the Bronx Puerto Rican appears to be the beneficiary of this sausage making. Palacios TKO8
Speakin' of a collection of sausages . . . Step up to the plate!
