NOVEMBER BOXING PREDICTIONS PART 1

NOVEMBER BOXING PREDICTIONS PART 1

Chris Algieri vs. Manny Pacquiao
The internet has been abuzz with so much new information since this fight was announced.  Top Rank and Golden Boy patching things up.  HBO bringing back Oscar's fighters.  Al Haymon becoming boxing's biggest enemy for competitive fights.  Mayweather steadfastly refusing to face Pacquiao, unless he leaves Arum.  Pacquiao refusing to do so.  Does this matter come fight time?  No, Pacquiao is always focused in the ring.  Algieri, however, does matter.  Unless there is still a big gap in talent, I see a style nightmare for Manny.  Algieri is tall, smart, quick, brave, and determined.  Pacquiao's left may finish off the eye that Provodnikov started, but barring that, I am picking the upset.  Algieri by close MD.
 
Bernard Hopkins vs. Sergei Kovalev
This is a battle between two freaks of nature, for entirely different reasons.  Kovalev's power is scary, and his delivery method is even unique.  The man's jab has finished off opponents.  Other than Sonny Liston, I can't think of too many others who did that.  Hopkins' refusal to age is what makes him an "Alien".  Eventually, he is going to be too old, and many are picking this fight as the night.  However, this has never been the style to bother Hopkins.  Trinidad, Pavlik, Tarver... all brutal punchers, all couldn't hurt or win a round against B-Hop.  Hopkins will throw less punches this time, but that will be what makes it close.  Hopkins by closer than normal UD.
 
Tomasz Adamek vs. Artur Spilka
Adamek is another I wish would just retire.  However, with other shot Pole's he has always done well.  Spilka showed what little he has at the higher levels when he fought Bryant Jennings.  This is a chance for Adamek to shine, and look less done than he really is.  Adamek in a late TKO.  Shrewd matchmaking.
 
Tyson Fury vs. Dereck Chisora 2
Fury has been idle for quite some time, and during which, both men's careers have changed.

THIS IS NOT GOING TO HELP

Sure enough, we finally get a fighter fighting hurt, and look what happens.  I, like many boxing fans, have been complaining about the myriad of ways that fights are being cancelled.  Injuries have derailed careers, not to mention all of th...

Sam Soliman vs. Jermain Taylor
Soliman is taking on an odd choice of opponent for a man who did as much calling out as he did.  Losing close controversial decisions, having to fight on the road, being rushed in his opening career.  Soliman s...

Gennady Golovkin vs. Marco Antonio Rubio
In a fight dubbed "Mexican style", a not so subtle attempt to get GGG the Mexican fans, it is ironic who has become the foil.  Rubio, an actual Mexican, has been near the top of the rankings for years, for...

THEY ARE GROWING UP

THEY ARE GROWING UP

Have you noticed the example that Floyd Mayweather is setting for many young African American fighters?  Oh, I am not talking about his work ethic.  That is legendary, and many young fighters aspire to even be able to handle a Money Team wo...
