Join us tonight with HBO's Boxing After Dark for what promises to be an exciting and noteworthy night of fights. Three top prospects will face tests, and I think we have a good chance to see two upsets. Plus, seeing Yuriorkis Gamboa is always worthwhile.
Here's the lineup.
Hey, you find a picture of Darling Jimenez. He'll have to live with what he gets.
Picks? Why not. Gamboa TKO early (first three rounds), Kirkland TKO-6 but he'll struggle with Albert, and Gutierrez in what I'd only consider a mild upset via decision over Angulo.
There are also two pay-per-view cards tonight, one topped by what should be a good fight between Cristian Mijares and Alexander Munoz, and the other with Jorge Arce against a scrub he should knock out in a round or two in an alleged eliminator. I'm taking Munoz in a close scrap over Mijares.
But we'll be here for the HBO card, starting at 9:45 eastern. Join us and talk some boxing with your Saturday night.
