This is a Showtime-type card...lucky for HBO.

Garcia/Salido, Golovkin/Rosado, and R. Martinez/Burgos.

What more could you ask for?

Thoughts? Predictions?

I'm being a homer, but I have to pick my boy Salido. I just love watching him fight. Even though he's been guilty of PED abuse in the past, I would like to think he's put that stuff behind him. Mikey Garcia might get a close decision if it goes to the cards, but I'm hoping for a stoppage win for Salido.

Dude, the Golovkin - Rosado match is a true super-fight in my opinion. Golovkin has a perfect record and represents a country that is absolutely crazy about boxing. Rosado is a physical freak (78 inch reach, WTF !!!) and has been on a tear for 2 years now. I really can't call the fight, but my gut tells me that Rosado wins it for some reason.

Also, Rosado is from Philly, and I have to rep my Philly peeps. Yeah, hoping for a Rosado victory all the way.

salido is a beast and is definitely going to test the young man. garcia has looked impressive against his opposition but none have been on the level of salido.

i get the feeling golovkin is going to destroy rosado. the kid should have stood the course with his promoter. instead he's rolling the dice with super star talent. i'm thinking golovkin by ktfo.

martinez...the kid from texas? not sure i've seen burgos. time to do some homework.

I think Garcia might be too much for salido but ill be rooting for salido, that boy has no quit in him!

Never seen rosado. But I hope he's legit, golovkin is starting to sound like some sort of mythical character by everyone "feared by many, seen by few". Everybody swears he's an animal but the motherfucker never fights anyone lol.

A lot of good fights in Jan no? Doesn't sergio Martinez fight too?

i've known about him since before the '04 olympics. youtube him. he's legit. his ko of bute was ridiculous. he's got wins over dirrell and korobov. he's the real deal.

Let's just pray he uses it. Usually the underdog who has the advantage, always fails to use it when the tough gets going.

Yup definitely a nice card. For the main event I agree that Golovkin might (will?) seriously beat up Rosado. Obviously I might be wrong, but that's what I'm sticking with.
Picking Garcia over Salido, even though Salido's apparently been handing out KOs like they were early Christmas presents.
Rocky Martinez/ Juan Carlos Burgos - I know I've seen them both before but can't place faces to names. Therefore I have no idea how it will end up.

OH YEAHHHHHHH thats all

I've seen his Olympic stuff. But i wanna see it translate to the pros, it doesn't always work out. It seems like him and his camp train and talk more than they actually fight.

That kd was nasty tho, I thought Bute was doing well and them bam, stoppage.

i think ggg is special, rosado will come out aggressive but when he gets hit it will be over. he is too small for ggg. Garcia, idk, i guess its cause he looks like his brothers lol never liked the one that trained ortiz. his chin can't be that good and salido will test it. can garcia win a war? i doubt it. salido is battle tested and approved which is why i am picking him. Rocky Martinez is the pr dude right?

i didn't see it with my own eyes...but i've heard rumors that he's put it on guys like canelo, chavez and others in sparring. u don't get a 300-5 amateur record without having something. i think his lack of exposure had to do with promotional issues that he's gotten past sort of. i think he's going to be avoided.
Genius
Only interested in Salido and Garcia. The rest blah...GGG will KO Rosado, worse than Angulo did.

lol that is how I feel - "gloveskin? gloveskin? who is gloveskin!?" I'm gonna make it a point to watch this bout and get introduced

I'll be surprised if Garcia can make it to the final bell of a Salido fight to be honest. maybe I missed a fight where Garcia showed the determination and grit necessary to prevail against the mighty and terrible Salido. Last time I saw Garcia he looked like a solid prospect to me. Good luck to him anyhow!
