STRAIT JABS

boxing_predictionsThe Super Six Super Middleweight Tourney has fallen apart.  Three of the original particpants are gone, and they are now digging up old light heavyweights to keep it going.  Interest is waning, even though there are still great fights to be made.  Now we know there are too many variables to make a two-year tournament possible.  Bravo to the Bantamweights.  They are doing it right.  P.S. Andre Ward is still going to take it all... if Sauerland doesn't steal it.

If Andre Dirrell is indeed neurologically damaged from his fight with Arthur Abraham, I hope he sues him for all he is worth.  The idea that injury occuring during the fight is a dismissal for all accountability needs to be revised.  What happens in the throws of a fight should be limited to legal blows.  Damage sustained outside of legal behavior should be criminally prosecutable.  I'd add charges to the doctors who allowed Dirrell's entourage access to him, so they could keep rubbing and shaking his head like morons.

Due to being constantly avoided, Celestino Caballero has had to become the lower weight divisions' answer to Paul Williams.  His fight with Jason Litzau will be his second jaunt out of a hot division where the top guys won't fight him.  It worked for Williams; let's hope the same happens for Caballero.  He's earned it.  Good thing these two men are long and lean, and can change divisions if necessary, while still being competitive.  A short, squat fighter who is comfortable at one weight, might just be sitting on the shelf.

Amir Khan vs. Marcos Maidana may not be as competitive as we are thinking.  It's intriging, since Maidana is a puncher with heart, and Khan has shown a chin defiency in his one loss to Breidis Prescott.  He has also shown a resulting reluctance to face any punchers since then.  However, Maidana was also dropped 3 times by Victor Ortiz, who probably hits just as hard as Khan.  Khan also will not go to war, and be perfectly content to box his ears off for 12 rounds, if that is what is necessary.  Khan is an offensive machine.  He outboxed Paulie Malignaggi, which we had not seen before.  He also dominated Andreas Kotelnik, who no one dominates.  I'll give my official prediction later in the month, but I'm not of the belief that these men are equals just yet.

140lb prospect Mike Dallas Jr. is probably the real deal... for the same reason 140lb champ Timothy Bradley is.  Any light-hitting black kid growing up fighting Mexicans in front of almost all Mexican crowds in California, is going to be damn tough.  He also has to be completely dominant if he's going to win decisions.  These guys often have no hometown as they are coming up.  The same could be said of Shane Mosley, but he could really punch.
