Man Stevenson @36 to have the hand speed and he has at his bulk is quiet amazing that left hand just finds the spot everytime his timing is excellent.

As far as the Chavez decision I knew he lost but I knew he would be given another W, I mean it's sad when fighters clearly lose but due to name power win, as for Vera great performance + he's got a hot wife and didn't get badly hurt so I can't feel to sorry for him lol.

Kovalev vs. Stevenson = the winner gets Andre Ward or Bernard Hopkins.

He strikes me was the type that's not overly hard to hurt but so hard to finish off, he's got good recovery time imo rather than a great chin, his chin is solid but he is easily wobbled.

Yeah, he's sort of like Diego Corrales in that way. Gets wobbled and even knocked down frequently, but actually taking him out? That's another matter.

I'll take Marquez by UD. I don't see a stoppage from either guy in this one.

I think Bradley is a brilliant fighter with a tremendous amount of resiliency and who knows how to use the ring wisely. The only thing he lacks is a bit more pop, but he is hardly Malignaggi. I don't think he'll get into the unnecessary brawling as he did against Provo. He'll fight a more intelligent fight against Marquez, especially since JMM is an exceptional counterpuncher. I've always liked Marquez, but people are putting to much emphasis on his KO of Pacquaio. Pac has a tendency of getting overly anxious and reckless, and Marquez took advantage like a snake laying in the weeds for hours waiting for that perfect moment to strike. Bradley won't be so careless, but we'll see

Such a shame Bradley is on top rank. He deserves ashot at floyd more than anyone else (except for Garcia maybe).

I bet this fight ends up happening for a few reasons:

1. Bradley's contract with top rank ends sometime next year.
2. Bradley hasn't had a great relationship with top rank anyway, especially since Arum threw him under the bus after the Pacquaio fight.
3. In order for Showtime to not go broke, they need Floyd to have good opponents who are actually known and carry the perception that they can give him a good fight. Look what happened with the Guerrero fight...They still haven't released the PPV numbers for that one lol.

If Bradley boxes he'll get outclassed. If he fights he has a decent chance. I give it to Marquez by UD because I feel Bradley is going to try and box.

Should be classic boxing match with two guys who are not afraid to trade blows and let their hands go.

Mayweather vs Khan on May 3rd done. In Vegas.

I thought they would fight in UK. But Mayweather is probably too scared of fighting away from home.
