boxing imageGennady Golovkin vs. Curtis Stevens
GGG not only wins, he wins in style, with brutal displays of power.  When Stevens loses, at least in the past, it was usually in anything but style.  This was the same man who allowed himself outslugged by Jesse Brinkley, and outboxed by Andre Dirrell, while barely putting forth a decent effort.  In fact, his showing against Dirrell was so bad, if you had said HBO would ever allow him on their air again, you'd have been looked upon as crazy.  A string of early KO's on television has us rethinking "Showtime", who will ironically get his shot on HBO.  If lighting strikes early, maybe Stevens has a chance here.. but that lighting would be striking a non-conductor.  Golovkin by KO, within two rounds.

Nonito Donaire vs. Vic Darchinyan 2
This rematch is happening about 5 years too late.  However, both men have more to prove.  We now know what kind of fighter can beat Donaire.  We also know Darchinyan will never be able to be that guy.  He is smarter and more patient than he was in 2007, and that should help Vic get to later rounds and make it competitive.  However, unless Donaire is too wide looking for a knockout, it won't be enough.  Donaire by decision or late round TKO.

Mago Abdulasamov vs. Mike Perez
Both big, hard-punching, sloppy heavyweights.  Perez may have the Cuban amateur pedigree, but you'd never know it watching the transplanted Irishman swing away.  He's also had bouts of inactivity.  None of this will matter.  Mago can fight, but looks as if his receptivity may be in question.  Perez, if nothing else, seems to be able to take a punch.  I have a hunch he'll be the first to dismantle, much like Bert Cooper vs. Willie de Wit.  Perez by Ko in the first few rounds, unless he is too sloppy to finish Abdulasamov.

David Tua vs. Alexander Ustinov
Why should we care?  Well, Tua makes for entertaining fights because of his ability to absorb punishment, and end fights with one shot.  these are things which do not typically go away with age, and so he is expected to have a shot at sneaking into the rankings again.  Enter Ustinov.  When Gerry Cooney was looking to re-enter the fray in the late 80's, they had to dig up a non-threatening fighter with a ranking to legitimately throw the money fights at Cooney.  That man was Eddie Gregg.  He was ranked 8, but harmless.  Ustinov is being chosen for that reason, but Tua may be too shot to capitalize.  This could go either way, but I guess Tua will find a big shot once again, and sneak into a Klitschko fight.  Tua by 9th round TKO.
