Default Re: Devon Alexander vs Juan Urango - Pre fight discussion + RBR

Urango's got intangibles, not least his chin. Berto got through because he had the experience of the Collazo fight to call on, but Alexander doesn't.

In Alexander's favour, he's not a big puncher, so his skill set is more rounded. I think he'll win by keeping mobile and never allowing Urango inside. But i wouldn't be surprised if he gets dragged into a brawl in the middle rounds. Urango's a late rounds fighter. That constant pressure and solid punching can catch people off guard.

Good 50-50 fight overall for me.

Sorry to inform you slip but Devon will be accompanied to the ring by a rapper. No joke.

I think Devon's nickname should be 'Custard'

Tarver looks sharp.

How the hell does Guerrero get a world title shot, when he's ranked in the mid-teens by all the organisations?

crazy

Zappa is meant to be a good Aussie prospect.

Zappa has a very fan friendly style but lacks world class IMO, he has a ripping body shot though....this is a good test for him
