Adrien Broner vs, Emmanuel Taylor
Taylor has looked good in his last few fights, and if Broner remains as unfocused as he has been recently, than has-been is a phrase people will be using for a very young man. Taylor is not a man to go to sleep against, but even a half-in Broner should have the skills to pull it out. Don't look to be dazzled, however, nor for Broner to be allowed anywhere near the Ortiz-Matthysse winner. Broner by dull UD.
Kiko Martinez vs. Carl Frampton
Frampton taking the safer fight than Leo Santa Cruz may come back to bite him. Martinez is experienced, hungry, and has a great team behind him. Frampton may also be the perfect style for him to shine. The British press have a way of making stars out of ordinary fighters, and that may be the case here. A Frampton win would not shock me, but I am picking Martinez by UD
Juan Francisco Estrada vs. Giovanni Segura
This fight is a classic XYZ. Meaning just because X can beat Y, and Y can beat Z, does not mean that X can beat Z. The Y is of course Brian Viloria, who beat up and stopped Segura, yet lost his title to Estrada. Estrada is riding high, and Segura is damaged. Both men are fighting in their home country (although Segura was raised in the USA) of Mexico. This has all the makings of a wide UD for Estrada, but something tells me he'll get caught late. Segura by 11th round KO.
Floyd Mayweather vs. Marcos Maidana 2
Maidana was figured out midway though the last fight. Unless he does something else (and he can't), it is going to be more of the same. I'd love to say that this fight will go the way of a Roy Jones rematch (Griffin and Tarver) and end with a shocking KO, but we know better.
