  • Jamal “Gang Banging” James will suffer his 3rd loss. I love watching this guy lose. He deserves it.

    I don’t expect Alberto Palmetta to win a world title. However, I expect Alberto to lay this guy out. Easy world for Palmetta.

  • Matias vs Ponce, a potential fight of the year. Hope to see Matias fighting for a 140 title this year.
