TopRank.com will be streaming four fights from the off-HBO undercard in Atlantic City, starting at 6:55pm EDT, and we'll be here to watch and discuss all the action, making for a full night of boxing here at Bad Left Hook.
This post will be for the off-HBO undercard only. After that, we'll move over to the main post for Pavlik-Martinez and Bute-Miranda, starting live on HBO at 10pm EDT.
Here's what we'll see on the Top Rank Livestream:
- Welterweights: Mike Jones (20-0, 16 KO) v. Hector Munoz (18-2-1, 11 KO). If Jones wins and doesn't get hurt or cut, he'll be in the co-feature fight on HBO on June 12, when Yuri Foreman and Miguel Cotto battle at Yankee Stadium.
- Middleweights: Ronald Hearns (24-1, 18 KO) v. Delray Raines (17-7-1, 12 KO). Hearns, 31, got into boxing really late in life, despite his father being Tommy Hearns. He's one of those guys who doesn't have "it," but unlike a lot of children of great boxers, he also works really hard and comes to fight. This could be a pretty exciting fight.
- Heavyweights: Dominick Guinn (32-6-1, 21 KO) v. Terrell Nelson (8-9, 5 KO). Pretty much a nothing fight for Guinn. I won't even call this a "stay busy fight." Guinn's last four fights have seen him get his career back on some sort of track, after his prospect bubble burst and it turned out he was not, in fact, the next big thing in American heavyweight boxing. There's still a chance Guinn could get a title shot, I suppose, but at 34 it's getting close to now or never.
- Middleweights: Matt Korobov (10-0, 8 KO) v. Joshua Snyder (8-4-1, 3 KO). I know he's only had ten pro fights, but Korobov is 27. It's time to at least fight a decent gatekeeper. He's too polished and too good for fights like this to teach him anything anymore.
