Boxing "fans" are already complaining about this fight, but I see it being a nice turnout. Both guys are southpaws, so that may be the only dampers it just a bit. At that point, maybe it all comes down to who has the better footwork. 

 

As most may agree, Victor is past it at this point, but Alexander still has something in the tank. I just how he'll deal with Victor's size and pressure in this one.

Could be similar to his Alexander's fight with Maidana. If he is back on that level. 

 

Saw rumor on Broner vs Khan thats interesting.

Broner needs to look to cash out sooner than later. I honestly don't see his career going "up", if he doesn't get it right this year. We need to see him fight 3 times this year, because this fighting once or twice (if he's lucky) per year, is enabling him to do shit outside of the ring that's gonna cost him his career. 

 

Why am I so worried about Broner, yet again? This is a never ending story, lol. Anyway, a Khan fight may be wrong for him, mainly because of styles and Khan's height. I remember people saying how great a Bradley/Khan fight would've been, but the height disparity was evident and I'm kinda glad it didn't happen.

:lol:

 

Ortiz is vulnerable to uppercuts and I'm sure Alexander has those in his arsenal. I believe Ortiz is gonna try to smother Devon and maul him on the inside, which may be bad news for Devon because his feet aren't so great.

Bad fight for Broner who does not move his hands enough... Broner's problem is not being in good enough shape to let his hands go. He is not a master defensive boxer like Floyd or Hopkins who were masters at defensively reducing the opponents ability to get off punches and then be selectively accurate enough to outland that opponent while not throwing an abundance of punches. Broner needs to get his ass in shape and let his hands go in the ring or he is done winning

Ortiz should win this, but don't be surprised if he gets clipped and quits again. I don't know why people keep entertaining this guy, get him out of boxing, please.
