The show goes live on Showtime in about 40 minutes. I'll switch over to the HBO card as soon as this fight ends. HBO's card starts at 9:30.
Also, if you're interested in MMA and don't care about the HBO card -- I'm not trying to downplay boxing, but I know there are people out there that are fans of both sports (like me!) -- our friends over at Bloody Elbow will be covering the Ken Shamrock-Buzz Berry main evented Cage Rage card from the UK, which immediately follows Haye-Maccarinelli on Showtime.
My official picks for the night: Maccarinelli TKO-6 in a hard-fought battle (Haye's chin, focus and weight issues bother me too much) ... Diaz via UD ... Peter TKO-8.
Part of me hopes this'll end kind of early so we can catch and score both fights on HBO, but most likely we'll be able to do this and the heavyweight fight, and see a portion of Diaz-Campbell.
