That's a nice card and definitely one of the better Showtime cards this year...they need to carry some positive momentum into 2015 from this

The only time waster is Ortiz fighting that bum.  They want to make sure Victor won't be a quitter.  Good card.

From what Joseph Diaz was saying in an interview a few days ago "hes hungry and he's ready". I'll take another fighters word over his word, trainer manager promoter. But I'll still have to see it to be convinced

I agree, they seem to be trying to build him back up a bit. Though Ortiz is so unpredictable you never know which version of him shows up on fight night. I hope we see the focused Victor Ortiz because that's the fighter I like. When he's locked in he's worth the price of admission.

Yup, never know which Victor shows up

:lol:

He's fighting a guy with 10 losses! Guys like Salido had losses in the double digits, but he had been in with world champs...not sure about Victor's opponent though.

Possible set up for the cash out?

That may be the move here....make him look good for the next 2 fights, match him up big, and hopes he wins. I can see a Berto rematch on the horizon, possibly in April.

 

IF he beats Berto, then they can match him light and scout out the next big fight...maybe Soto-Karass or a a Maidana rematch...of course that would be a cash out fight. Lol

Hey All,

 

I added a poll and voted for Alexander by close decision,

 

Not certain of this pick, but the conventional wisdom is that if Devon can box, hit and not get hit, especially early, he will win with better defense and counter-punching.  Remember that Danny Garcia is not exactly a murderous puncher, and he had Khan on the floor and stopped him.

 

I said this was a 50/50 fight, I think I am moving more toward a 60/40 split in Alexander's favor.  Hard to say whether this will be neck and neck, a down to the wire nail-biter?  (Khan-Peterson) or a blitz?) Devon's not blitzing anybody.  He's not a power-hitter.  But Khan can get blitzed early (Prescott I) to mid rounds (Garcia) or do the blitzing himself (Precott II) (Judah)  This is really a hard to call fight.  I think if Devon does not get stuck in a surprising trap of Khan, especially early, he wins.

I have to go with Khan by close decision....118-112 or at the very least 115-113. He's not THE volume puncher that he used to be (because of his new style), but he can STLL be hit with clean shots. 

 

Speaking of clean shots, how great is Devon at that nowadays? He RARELY sits down on his shots, and looks horrible when a guy with decent range lands jabs while he attempts to throw a straight left. 

 

I believe Khan will take this one, maybe with a little struggle (because of the southpaw stance from Devon), but I believe he beats Devon fairly easily here. I'll be surprised if Devon goes out there and goes for the gusto, but he's never been the biggest finisher.
