The Ynares Sports Arena, Pasig City, The Philippines
Brian Viloria (30-3) vs. Omar Nino Romero (31-4-2)
Boxing360 Pick: Viloria is really on a nice roll. He’s had trouble twice before with Omar Nino but that was years ago. The Viloria of today can box, punch, and pick his spots like the veteran he is. Third time is a charm. Viloria by late TKO.
In Tepic, Mexico
Juan Sanchez (13-1-1) vs. Juan Rosas (36-6)
Boxing360 Pick: I am not terrible familiar with either fighter so we’re going with experience and picking Rosas.
The Ice Palace, Brovari, Ukraine
Gennady Golovokin (22-0) vs. Makoto Fuchigami (19-6)
Boxing360: I like this kid a lot. He’s tough, durable, hard hitting and not unwilling to scrap. Golovkin by KO in 8.
The Woodland Community Center, Woodland, CA
Vicente Escobedo (25-3) vs. Juan Ruiz (32-9)
