Oleydong Sithsamerchai (35-0-1, 13 KOs) vs. Kazuto Ioka (6-0), 4 KOs) WBC 105 lb. title) Odds/Prediction: Oley 4-1. Based on nine title fights, a ton more experoence, it’s tough to go against Thailand here in Japan. This could end up being Japanese home cooking at its worst! Don’t bet it!
Bell Centre, Montreal, Canada
(ESPN 2) Antonin Decarie (24-1, 7 KOs) vs. Shamone Alvarez (21-3, 12 KOs) Odds/Prediction:Decarie 3 1/2 rto 1. Alvarez lost three of his last five, he ain’t winning here unless he pulls lightning out a bag!
Ionut Don Ion (27-1, 15 KOs) vs. Steve Forbes (35-8, 11 KOs) Odds/Prediction: Don Ion 2 1/2 to 1. Forbes is the “opponent” here. Stevie must win convincingly or expect to lose.

Ricardo Williams (16-2, 9 KOs) vs. John Brown (24-18-2, 18 KOs) Odds/Prediction: Williams 2-1. Odds would be higher but 2000 Olympic Silver medalist is the laziest prick I know! Convicted Cocaine distributor Williams the biggest disappointment in the last decade! Brown is a stepping stome guy, but only if you are on top of your game.
