NEWARK, NJ — Weigh-in results are in for Friday’s Spike TV card headlined by veterans Antonio Tarver and Steve Cunningham. The card airs at 9 p.m. EST.
PREDICTION: Tarver is not a heavyweight and the extra weight is going to do him no favors. Cunningham, while probably better suited for cruiserweight, has shown the skill and athleticism to beat smaller heavys and compete with the bigger men of his division. He’s younger, faster, and all around just better than this 40+ and bloated Tarver. The Magic Man is savvy enough to make the distance, but Cunningham should take this easily. CUNNINGHAM WIDE DECISION
PREDICTION: Huck has the toughest assignment of the evening in facing the undefeated southpaw Glowacki. Nonetheless, Huck is the stronger puncher and adept at counter-punching guys. Since Glowacki is aggressive and likes to bang inside, I see Huck being able to time him in route to a late stoppage. HUCK TKO9
