Tonight's special Shobox features, of course, the IBF featherweight title bout that I discussed a couple posts down earlier today, and I'm picking Guerrero. I think I'm going with a late TKO in a good fight. We'll see action on both sides.
The opener is a rematch between heavyweights T.J. Wilson and Travis Walker, which will hopefully make up for the highly questionable (some would call it "moronic") 15-second stoppage of their first bout in October, which went Wilson's way as he punched at Walker, who was backed into a corner, before referee Raul Caiz stopped the bout -- you know, in 15 seconds. It was a deliriously bad call by Caiz. Walker was in no danger of being seriously hurt, and he deserves this rematch. I look for him to pound the 6'7" southpaw this time around.
The show goes live on Showtime at 11pm eastern, so in about two and a half hours. We'll be here, as it's really a day early undercard for Vazquez-Marquez III, coming to us tomorrow night.
