Shawn Porter vs Phil Lo Greco

Damn, that main event is a tough one to pick. Lucas has to KO him by round 8 to win. If it goes 12, Peterson will get the decision, IMO.

I think Lucas can outpoint him as well as KO him. Pretty confident Lucas will win unless he's robbed for the 3rd time.

He's not as talented as Floyd is/was either. He's a bit flat footed to. And Mayweather always had an iron chin the Spence KO rumors are troubling.

there aren't many people as talented as Mayweather.

Anyways I heard Spence gave Mayweather some really good sparring. Even gave him a black eye

Broner would beat him. Broner would make it more of a fight than Floyd would.

Boxing loses but HBO loses even more.

Showtime has been kicking that ass lately and what was a great double hitter now only features Kessler/Froth II.

would have been a better fight. Broner gets hit a lot more and he is more willing to engage but Broner hasn't really fought someone bigger than before yet.

yes but that's a big if.
most fighters aren't the same after getting knocked out like this.
I thought Manny should have retired...
Rios... a guy who enjoys getting punched in the face that much will not have a very long career
but this one is hard to predict because you don't know what Manny you'll get.

it could go the other way as well..a 2nd consecutive KO loss for pac should be enough to make him retire. that's the only way he'll lose to rios anyway

Broner - Guerrero would be an awesome fight and it probably can happen.
