Just a reminder that we will again be LIVE tomorrow night for the HBO presentation of Jermain Taylor v. Kassim Ouma, for the WBC, WBA and WBO middleweight titles. It will be Taylor's third defense of the three belts, and Ouma's first fight at 160. I'm very interested to see how Taylor combats a southpaw this time out; he fared OK against Winky, but Ouma is a different fighter. I'm also interested to see if Ouma will have sting behind his punches at 160, or if Taylor can simply absorb Ouma's best shots and use his superior natural size to his advantage.
As for a pick, Taylor in eight, if not earlier. I like Ouma, but I think Taylor's out to make a statement this time after three straight controversial decisions that have put him on top of the middleweight pile.
