What’s up, people? Tito Jones here bringing you my picks for this weekend’s fights.
Today is the anniversary of Tyson-Douglas
but I gotta say, there will be no honorary upsets in their honor this weekend.
First up in Canada we have Friday Night Fights with Antonin Decarie (24-1) vs. Shamone Alvarez (21-3). I’m taking Decarie here. I don’t know much about him but Alvarez has had his shot and I think he is just an opponent here. If it goes the distance, I think Decarie takes it easily.
After that we have Jo Jo Dan (27-1) vs. Steve Forbes (35-8). Forbes is waaaaaay past his prime and he doesn’t let his hands go nearly enough to win this one. I have Dan by unanimous decision.
On Showtime’s Shobox in Atlantic City, Rico Ramos (18-0) takes on Alejandro Valdez (23-4-3). I’m not sure about Ramos’ power but he is a fast guy and Valdez just seems like an opponent. Ramos by late TKO.
Eddie Chambers (35-2) vs. Derric Rossy (25-2). Hmmmm, that’s pretty easy. Eddie Chambers by decision. He’s a better boxer and beaten better people.
Cornelius White (16-0) vs. Don George (20-1-1). This one is tough because no one I know has seen White. George got exposed in his last fight but I have a feeling that this is a get back fight. Give me George by decision.
On Telefutura, Peter Quillin (22-0) fights Dennis Sharpe (17-5-3). Sharpe is old, hasn’t fought in years and wasn’t very good when he was fighting. Quillin by brutal knockout.
In Germany Steve Cunningham (23-2) gets a little tune up action against Enad Licina (19-2). Cunningham by KO.
Arthur Abraham (31-2) needs a new engine but he’ll settle for an oil change against Stjepan Bozic (24-4). I say Arthur Abraham by nasty knockout late.
Finally, in Guadalajara, Mexico on FOX Sports Marco Antonio Barrera (66-7) will blast out Jose Arias (15-1) for your viewing pleasure.
It’s going to be a good weekend for fights.
