Yep, we'll be here. The show starts live at 9pm EST to bring you round-by-round scoring and analysis of one of the year's least interesting major events.

Part of me really does want to order the Top Rank PPV, but then there's the more logical side of me that goes, "It's not worth the money to see predictable winners and losers." If you decide to order, I hope the fights are good. I look for Arce to wreck up Singsurat in a major way.

All I want out of the Showtime card is good fights. I don't have a lot of confidence that I'll get that.

Picks:

Tarver UD-12 Santiago
Forrest UD-12 Piccirillo
Donaire TKO-8 Maldonado

I'm not really confident that Donaire will TKO Maldonado, either. But I don't really care to watch 36 rounds of these fights, and I'm fairly sure the two "bigger" fights will give us 24.
