JANUARY 2016 BOXING PREDICTIONS

JANUARY 2016 BOXING PREDICTIONS

Czar Glazkov vs. Charles Martin
Yes, it is the Prince against the Czar.  These two men are pretty opposite in most ways.  Glazkov the Pole.  Martin the American.  One southpaw, one orthodox.  One white, one black.  One puncher, one pressure fighter.  One has looked destructive and dominant against minimal opposition (Martin).  The other has fought a good deal of other contenders, but has needed help from the judges to remain unbeaten (Glazkov).  The belt is meaningless, as the IBF is the lowest belt in many divisions these days.  The real champion is Tyson Fury, and the real number one contender is Deontay Wilder.  However, the winner of this fight can sneak into the number 3 spot, and command more money.  Glazkov has struggled, and has never really fought a puncher, but has the more impressive resume.  Martin has not really been given the chance to shine, but he was scheduled to face unbeaten Olympian Dominic Breazeale before this opportunity presented itself, so his management believes in him.  I have seen Martin develop, and fight many times on off-TV cards, and he is the goods.  Martin by mid-rounds KO, after maybe being outboxed for a few rounds.

Deontay Wilder vs. Artur Spilka
Rounding out the Jan 16 Brooklyn USA vs. Poland heavyweight title night is the big matchup between Wilder and Spilka.  Spilka is getting this title shot basically because he is the only one who wanted it.  The Europeans think Fury as an easier mark, so they are waiting for that shot.  Spilka was already exposed a bit against Jennings, but made a fight of it, so he is expected to do the same against Wilder.  However, unlike Molina and Duhaupas, Wilder cannot afford to let Spilka go rounds.  He might actually win a few of them.  I don't think it matters, as Wilder tends to fight up or down to the level of his competition.  Wilder by 3rd round KO, after getting buzzed himself.

Danny Garcia vs. Robert Guerrero
One year ago this fight may have been viewed as an even 147lb matchup, however it is just following the recipe of Haymon's unbeatens... which is to fight names who are passed their primes and recently beaten.  It has worked well for Thurman and Khan, so why not Garcia.  While Aron Martinez' recent win makes his great performance against Guerrero less of a black eye for the Ghost, it still appears as if Guerrero is not what he once was.  Garcia needs a good performance after cherry picking an older Malignaggi and struggling against Peterson, and Guerrero at least usually means action.  This will give him just that.  Garcia may even be the first to stop Guerrero, but that won't be my official bet. Garcia by wide UD, in an entertaining scrap, where both men's chins keep them in it.

REPACKAGED NONSENSE

REPACKAGED NONSENSE

There is a disturbing trend that has started out the year of 2016, and that is that absolutely nothing seems to be moving forward.  Sure, it looks as if we are finally getting Thurman vs. Porter, but that is about all as far as new challenges.&n...

QUILLIN-JACOBS REFEREE LESSON

QUILLIN-JACOBS REFEREE LESSON

I am not sure if much was learned about either Daniel Jacobs or Peter Quillin on December 5.  I do know that referee Harvey Dock is definitely not ready for the big time.  He is a trigger-happy stoppage ref, who is robbing fans of the finis...

KLITSCHKO-FURY RECAP

KLITSCHKO-FURY RECAP

So, after a decade, we finally have a new undisputed champion.  Tyson Fury became the first man to defeat Wladimir Klitschko in 11 1/2 years, and the first man ever to do so on points.  Big Wlad's previous losses came by running out of gas ...

COTTO-CANELO RECAP

COTTO-CANELO RECAP

The most picked outcome was again the outcome.  However, it was not the brawl that many were expecting.  If anything, the show had already been stolen by the Miura-Vargas brawl, which saw both fighters down, and a questionable stoppage.&nbs...
