MGM Grand, Las Vegas, NV
Daniel Ponce De Leon (42-4, 35 KOs) vs. Eduardo Lazcano (24-2, 11KOs)
Boxing360’s pick: Is it really a pick? De Leon by Destruction in the fifth round. This is just a nice stay busy fight for Ponce between big time fights. A man has to work.
Ishe Smith (22-5, 10 KOs) vs. Ayi Bruce (21-6, 13 KOs)
Boxing360’s pick: Bruce is a late replacement for Smith. Ishe should be a top contender heading into the sunset. Instead he is the come backing gunslinger looking to make it all happen in one glorious stretch run. I hope he does. Smith by 7th round knockout in a surprisingly passionate performance.
Palais des Sport Marcel Cerdan, Paris, France
Hassan N’Jikam (26-0, 17 KO’s) vs. Max Bursak (24-0-1, 10 KOs)
Boxing360’s pick. Ok. I have to admit I have never seen these guys. I did the youtube search, I looked at the boxrec. It would appear that N’Jikam has the better wins with a twelve round decision over Giovanni Lorenzo. Add in the higher KO ratio and we’ll take N’Jikam by decision.
