LEFTJAB SCORECARD 3/28/13

21817675_BG2

Round 1- I thought Robert Guerrero was smarter than carrying a firearm to an airport.While it’s obvious that he was trying to do the right thing by telling the checkers he had the gun in a safebox you would still think Guerrero would at least have someone look into the laws so he wouldn’t get in trouble for carrying it.End result…this will not affect Guerrero in  the Mayweather fight in any way.

Round 2-According to reports  Kendall Holt may have took some kind of substance in his fight with Lamont Peterson.I always killed Peterson for taking PED’S before the Khan fight and stealing those belts so to be fair,Holt has to get it now if it’s true.If it’s true he took some substance to cut weight or enhance performance it’s disappointing news but let’s wait till it’s official before we kill Holt.

Round 3-By the time we get to June 22 Paulie Malignaggi might actually have a real home field advantage in Brooklyn.Broner’s arrogance is so annoying that even fans who dislike Paulie want to see him humble Broner.Now let’s see if Malignaggi fans and Broner haters unite in the Barclay’s Center that night.

Round 4-Unless David Haye is fighting a Klitschko does anyone care if he fights some bum in Juky?

Round 5-I actually like that they made David Price vs Tony Thompson rematch for July 6.That was a huge upset and a really bad loss for Price.Kudos to Price for immediately going for redemption against the guy who beat him instead of rebuilding against soft opponents padding his record until he gets a big fight again.This is what Amir Khan should have done after he was KO’D by Prescott a few years ago.

Round 6-If Brandon Rios beats Alvarado again this Saturday night he definately gets a huge fight next.He wants Juan Manuel Marquez after this fight and I think that fight or a fight against Manny Pacquiao would be great.

Round 7-Danny Garcia should beat Zab Judah April 27 which should either lead to Khan vs Garcia or Peterson in the fall.Either fight will be huge.I’d rather see Garcia but the way Peterson looked against Holt I would like to see him against Khan again too.

Round 8-They better put a good undercard on the Mayweather vs Guerrero PPV.

Round 9-If Holt did take something in his fight preparations against Peterson it sure didn’t help.And when you look at Eric Morales getting caught on two different tests in the Garcia fight last October,he still was brutally knocked out.Just goes to show you,just taking a substance does not guarantee you become superman and win.You still have to have better skills and a gameplan.Regardless, if someone takes PED’S, win or lose they are cheaters.

Round 10-Maybe the best thing for boxing was when Manny Pacquiao was knocked out by Juan Manuel Marquez.It freed everyone of the endless Mayweather vs Pacman debate and opened up all different fight possibilities to look forward to instead of wasting our time on a fight neither ever had any intention of making.

MayweathervsGuerrero

 

Round 1- Robert Guerrero is a good boxer but he is not exactly making the leadup to this Mayweather fight exciting.He doesn’t ooze confidence and seems like he is just saying what he thinks he should say.The 24/7 version on showtime will be boring I think.

Round 2-The Sergio Martinez-Macklin fight April 27 in Argentina is such a pointless fight nobody is talking about it or looking forward to it.It truly is a keep busy fight but at Martinez age and with his star power he should fight twice a year against the biggest names available.Imagine if he had Golden Boy as his promoter.

Round 3-Gennady Golovkin is not going to destroy Ishida this saturday like many fans think.Ishida has a big height advantage and while Golovkin will definately win the fight it won’t be as easy as everyone thinks.

Round 4-Wilfredo Gomez is in critical condition with a lung infection.Hopefully it gets well soon.

Round 5-Why is it taking so long too announce Broner vs Malignaggi?

Round 6-Breidis Prescott is on the HBO undercard of Rios vs Alvarado 2.He is facing Terrance Crwaford.It’s amazing how long that Amir Khan KO from a few years ago has kept Prescott relevant.As far as a Khan rematch,that will never happen unless Khan loses another 2fights at least.

Round 7-Who will return to form better…Timothy Bradley or Manny Pacquiao? After reading that Bradley is going to a concussion specialist I think theres more to his health after the Provodkin fight than we know.It will be interesting to see how he respinds to getting hit in his next fight.

Round 8-Im looking forward to Lucian Bute vs Jean Pascal.The beating Bute took against Carl Froch might have exposed Bute or it might have just not been his night.A win against Pascal puts Bute back on track.A loss and his career takes a serious hit..again.

Round 9- Once Mayweather beats Guerrero I wonder who’s next as Team Mayweather tip-toe around the Canelo fight.That is if Canelo beats Trout of course.That might be a fight of the year candidate or at least shock of the year if Trout beats Canelo.

Round 10-Danny Garcia vs Zab Judah is right around the corner and as much as I like Judah ,this fight feels like such a mismatch.Judah doesn’t have the speed or power to beat Garcia.This could end as badly as Garcia vs Morales last October did.

ROBERT GUERRERO VS FLOYD MAYWEATHER -MISMATCH OR GOOD FIGHT? December 27th, 2012

I will no doubt be ordering the Guerrero-Mayweather fight but I wonder what kind of fight it will be.This one can go in either direction.Either Floyd Mayweather will badly expose the Ghost until he really is a ghost in the ring or Guerrero will take it to Mayweather in a way that makes it a good,competitive fight.

There are two things going against Robert Guerrero that can make this fight all Mayweather.The first is that Guerrero does get hit..sometimes alot.So now he’s in their with the best counter puncher in the sport who will tag him everytime he tries to rush in.The other problem for Guerrero is that he likes to roughhouse and when you roughhouse Mayweather like Shane Mosley tried he ups his game even more and that’s trouble.Mayweather will not let Guerrero do anything dirty.We all see what happened when Victor Ortiz tried that.Most of Ortiz elbows and punches just would up being blocked and the ref was all over Ortiz to the point he was so frustfrated he headbutted Floyd.Guerrero will have to badly outwork Mayweather because he doesn’t have the power to hurt Mayweather or KO him.

 The one hope Guerrero has going for him is if he can out work Mayweather with his reach and jab.You never know when an athlete’s age will catch up with him.Mayweather is not as fleet of foot as he once was but his defense is still top-tier.

 My gut feeling is this will be a good,competitive fight much like the Cotto/Mayweather fight was.However,even in that fight you still never really felt Mayweather was in any danger of getting knocked down or losing.This fight will be similar.Guerrero will go full throttle but in the end Floyd’s counter punching and defense will prove too much for The Ghost.Mayweather by wide decision is a good bet.
