Couple Solid Cards this weekend

Post  BoxingGenius on Mon Jun 03, 2013 5:20 pm

Maidana-Lopez on paper should be an awesome action fight, 2 guys that arent afraid to hit and be hit. both tough as nails too.

Lara-Angulo should be fun, i think lara takes him but still a decent fight for an undercard nonetheless

Gamboa and Chad Dawson are fighting on HBO, not exactly top notch opponents but hey they are still pretty good fighters themselves so ill watch them. Stevenson can bang from what ive seen so he could give chad some sort of problems

round it out with a couple gatekeepers like sakio bika and david lemieux and we got a pretty solid night of free fights this saturday.

who do you like in lopez-maidana? i like lopez but i cant see him beating maidana. hes a bit bigger i think but maidana can take a punch better than just about anyone in the division. i dont think it goes the distance either way but im leaning toward maidana in 9 or so

i have the same take as you. lopez is faster but maidana just has a rock chin and lopez is just tough. maybe if lopez just decides to box he can win a decision, but im sure that he will mix it up a bit too. remember that although lopez beat ortiz in their fight, he wasnt doing too great for a lot of the fight. he wasnt able to mix it up really. he had to stay on the outside and box and counter. the difference is that maidana isnt a quitter and has a good chin. so i think that maidana will win by KO in the later rounds.

Adonis Stevenson is good and widely avoided, he has a chance to beat Dawson. Maidana should beat Lopez, he's in a different class. Lara should beat the piss out of Angulo, but we'll see.

don't sleep on stevenson. He has some power. He can hurt Chad if he gets to him. Dawson staying away and boxing to a decision is most likely, but not a gimme by any means.

Don't forget Huck Afolabi 3. That will be a good fight. Finding a stream on Saturday afternoon is something you should do if you have time. Look either on Wiziwig for a stream or follow Ryan Bivins (Sweet Boxing) on twitter. Either one should have a stream.

im not sleeping on stevenson i just havent seen enough of him to warrant giving an opinion. ive watched some clips, and he definitely has some pop. im excited for the fights this weekend all could potentially be really good ones. i think dawson outclasses stevenson from what ive seen, but he def has that punchers chance.

im with the group on stephenson. dawson has problems with punchers who pressure him. i think that dawson is in another league but his chin may be tested a bit. i also think that lara beats angulo but i wouldnt be shocked if angulo won.

scully, dawson's trainer for the ward fight (and at an earlier time before dawson started jumping from trainer to trainer), said that Dawson came into camp for the Ward fight at 182 pounds. Then a month later he weighed 184 pounds after training hard. Dawson had to kill himself in the run up to the fight and it was just a boneheaded move to go to 168.
