  • .4 sounds like not much but man that can be tough on him hopefully he still has some water to drain

  • There is no fucking way Cruz is beating Vargas. There you have it. The upset of the night. Vargas over Cruz by TKO.

  • Charlo should have an easy time with Montiel. But if hes weight drained it could be a bad night. Montiel is young and crude but hes a hard hitter with plenty of stamina. Hopefully Charlo didn’t take him lightly.

  • Cruz and Vargas should be a helluva good fight. Im really interested in seeing Gabriel Maestre though. Dude looks like hes going to be something special.

  • The undercard here should be excellent, 2-3 really good fights in my opinion.

  • Jermall taking on the absolute best Everytime he fights. No cherry picks here. Alvarez is pecking at chums while Charlos keep destroying A+ fighters. Bahahahah

  • Hard to believe Jermall actually used to make 154. That’s a big dude.

  • Everybody fighting nobody this weekend. Charlo fighting and Munguia fighting but not fighting each other, they fighting bums. Maybe I will watch the exhibition JCC and a MMA guy. I been watching boxing since the late 60s never seen a time so bad like this. Nobody wants to fight each other.

  • I expect Charlo to win. Do not rule out Montiel’s ability to display a physically demanding fight. Montiel may have the physical style, physical dimensions and punching power to give Charlo fits.

    While displaying his punching power, Montiel will need to create intense pressure, solid punch volume and inside fighting discomfort on Charlo. We will see if Montiel’s chin will hold.

  • I’m really hoping for a “super shocker” here and see Montiel land his bombs for an upset victory!!!!
    But, in all reality, Charlo is the MUCH BETTER fighter in every aspect and should have a solid game plan to counter Montiel’s aggressiveness.
    Charlo by TKO
    Cruz and Vargas should be a solid scrap while it lasts… But I see Bandido Vargas too fragile at this stage of his career and his willingness to get into unnecessary fire fights will play into Cruz’ limited, but powerful punching style.
    Cruz by TKO, maybe on cuts.

    Angelo and Alameda is a Pick ’em fight and should be very entertaining.
