Default Predictions regarding both Taylor & Dirrell's comeback fights?

They're on the same night, that makes it easy.

Will Taylor look totally washed up?

Will Dirrell fight aggressively with a killer instinct?

I think Taylor looks cautious in there making good money while preserving his brain damage free cranium (???), and I think Dirrell shows huuuh some degree of heart trying to go for a stoppage against Cunningham.

I wonder what Pavlik thinks of Dirrell-Cunningham, as he was gonna fight that guy in August to tune-up for Bute.

Discuss.

The only thing I wish for this fight is that JT comes out alright. People were more worried about Margarito's eye but nobody talks about JT's health which could be in real danger.

Jermain Taylor wins, but it's a flase Dawn.

He has enough Money, I wish he'd stop Boxing all together, he has a beautiful family. Each person has a right to make their own decisions, so I just hope he leaves Boxing as healthy as when he entered.

Frankly, I don't care about Andre Dirrell. He should go to ESPN and stay there.

I'm definitely on board with wishing JT the best i.e. no serious blows to the head.

Dirrell doesn't need to come out attacking. That's not him.
It'd be helpful to get a few rounds under his belt. Hopefully Cunningham can give him that.

I'm sure Taylor will be vary carefully matched. Read that 'under' matched and he will look good because of that.

Any news on Pav? Is he getting any more serious to fight the pack @ 168?

Not much news other than he is going to California after Christmas to train with Garcia. You know, the guy that claims Margarito would have won if the fight wasn't stopped so he was robbed? Not sure I like Arum forcing this guy on Pavlik. But... If the weather helps him keep weight off, they may be trying to get him back down to MW. He looked thin a few weeks ago at a local card here. Hard to say because of the way he was dressed though.

It is Jesse Nicklow. Mid fight stoppage. Taylor looked great verses Froch till the KO. He was ahead, He has nothing to prove but he will do better then expected. Dirrell comes as good as before. Outclasses Cunningham.

Dirrell UD 12
Taylor TKO 7

Dirrell might just get a stoppage in this fight if he wants to.

My personal guess is that, for a man who walks around at 180-190, he'll go through a lot of trouble making 160. Like, to the point of being weight drained. Inactivity + the fact he's not getting any younger re: his metabolism, equals 168 IMO.

I actually WANT Pav to make his way to the SMW top 5. MW is deep enough and includes a lot of good prospects, let them be.

I know the Martinez defeat was harsh to take, but **** let it go. Make a name for yourself at 168.

The point was he wasn't walking around at 180/90 from the looks of him.
