Friday, April 20, 2012

Beau Rivage Resort & Casino, Biloxi, Miss– (Showtime) Jermain Taylor (29-4-1, 18 KOs) vs. Caleb Truax (18-0-1, 10 KOs) Odds/Prediction: 6-5 pick ’em. With the damage done to 2000 Olympian Taylor, I wouldn’t bet him with your money. Looks close on paper!
Erislandy Lara (15-1-1, 10 KOs) vs. Ronald Hearns (26-2, 20 KOs) Odds/Prediction: Lara 14-5. Robbery victim of 2011 vs. Paul Williams returns. Cuban looks a level and 1/2 better than Tommy Hearns’ kid!

Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada– (ESPN2) Adonis Stevenson (17-1, 14 KOs) vs. Noe Alcoba (28-1, 20 KOs) (WBC Silver 168 lb. title) Odds/Prediction: Stevenson 2 1/2 to 1. Might be a bit closer than the odds, but I’m thinking the “house” more than likely to win in Canada.

Club Marconi, Bossley Park, AustraliaLeonardo Zappavigna (25-2, 17 KOs) vs. Farzan Ali (27-5, 18 KOs) Odds/Prediction: Zapp 3-1. Australian fighter looks the better here. Dropping $900 to win $1,200.
