WEIGHTS: HOPKINS (173.4), DAWSON (174.2)

Prediction: Bernard Hopkins by unanimous decision. If the Chad Dawson of circa 2005 comes to the ring tomorrow night, he’ll likely defeat Hopkins. Problem is, there’s nothing in Dawson’s recent fights to make one think he’ll all of sudden become the active, sharp punching southpaw he used to be. After some very slow early rounds, expect Hopkins to start landing well with the right hand and mauling inside.

WEIGHTS: LINARES (134.6), DEMARCO (134.4)

Prediction: Linares by unanimous decision. DeMarco has the power but I think Linares’ faster hands will see him through this one.

 

WEIGHTS: GARCIA (139.4), HOLT (139.4)

Prediction: Danny Garcia by TKO7. This should be a good fight. Holt will stun Garcia a few times, but Garcia’s pressure will eventually wear the veteran down. This may very well end up being the best fight of the night in terms of action.

 

WEIGHTS : MALIGNAGGI (147.4), LORA (147.5)

Prediction: Malignaggi by decision. There’s not much footage available on Lora but from what I’ve seen Paulie has distinct advances with hand and foot speed. I don’t see the Magic Man having many problems in this one.
