The Fantasy Springs Casino, Indio, CA
Cornelius “K9” Bundrage (31-4) vs. Cory Spinks (39-6)
For the IBF Jr. Middleweight Belt
Boxing360’s Pick: Call me crazy but I think Spinks turns back the clock and pulls it off with a boxing lesson but loses via decision to Bundrage.
Erislandy Lara (16-1-1) vs. Freddy Hernandez (30-2)
Boxing360’s Pick: This is going to be better than expected. Lara will come out fast but maybe a little too much so and tire. Hernandez will do work in the middle rounds and get stopped late. Lara by TKO 8.
Gary Russell (19-0) vs. Christopher Perez (23-2)
Boxing360’s Pick: I think Russell goes the distance in this one. Russell UD.
Antonio Orozco (14-0) vs. Alberto Cruz (9-3)
Boxing360’s Pick: This kid Orozco is something else. I can’t wait to see him in this one. He’s a star waiting to happen. Orozco by knockout.
Auditorio Centenario, Torreon, Mexico
Marco Antonio Rubio (53-6-1) vs. Jorge Cota (12-0)
Boxing360’s Pick: Rubio will use not much of the rounds allotted for this tune-up. Rubio by KO in 6.
