Nonito Donaire and Kelly Pavlik are favored tonight, but neither is in easy.
Tonight at 10 p.m. EDT, pound-for-pound contender Nonito Donaire looks to unify a pair of titles in the super bantamweight division, and so does South African underdog Jeffrey Mathebula in the HBO main event from California. Bad Left Hook will have live round-by-round coverage, and here's how you can join us:
Fight time: 10:00 p.m. EDT
Location: Home Depot Center - Carson, CA
TV channel: HBO
In the televised co-feature, ex-middleweight champ Kelly Pavlik takes on New York prospect Will Rosinsky in a fight that might be a bit more trouble than the comebacking Pavlik is expecting right now. We'll have round-by-round analysis of both fights, followed by immediate post-fight breakdowns.

In short: I think Pavlik might have some trouble tonight, but I'm picking him to come out of it with a win, and I like Donaire by decision in a fight that is more intriguing than some might expect. All in all, this might be a good sleeper double-header.
