Default The Ring's #1 & #2 matched up at featherweight and below. Your pick?

Don't feel like you need to make a pick in every fight, let us have your thoughs on one or more. Also, do Ring have the #1 and #2 in any of these divisions wrong in your opinion?


Featherweight

Chris John v Juan Manuel Lopez

Fascinating one. Who thinks the experienced John can out-box and out-think the coming monster Lopez?



Junior-Featherweight

Celestino Caballero v Poonsawat Kratingaengym.

Easy for you to say. Caballero towers over Poonsawat of course, but they have similar experience and a similar KO%. It would be interesting viewing at the very least.



Bantamweight

Hozumi Hasegawa v Anselmo Moreno

This will be an overwhelming pick for Hasegawa, I would guess, but Moreno is a southpaw, he's experienced, he's never been stopped and he's the younger man. A stern test at the very least.



Junior Bantamweight

Vic Darchinyin v Nobou Nashiro

Both probably exposed by ESB standards, but who do you take in the battle of the super-flies?



Flyweight

Pongsaklek Wonjongkam v Koki Kameda

Rematch!




Junior Flyweight

Ivan Calderon v Giovanni Segura

Is time catching up with the Iron Boy? And is Segura the man to close the blinds on him?



Straweights

Roman Gonzalez v Oleydong Sithsamerchai

Gonzalez is one of my fave's right now. How's he going to do versus his fellow unbeaten titlist?

Chris john vs juanma lopez is a crackin match up I actually think that has foty written all over it. I go for Lopez late stoppage.

As for Hozumi Hasegawa I'd have him over any current bantam that's active today.

I could see that, behind on the cards digging out all the stops.

John
Krat
Hasegawa
Vic
Pong
Segura (just)
Probably Gonzalez..Dont mind Sithsamerchai seems to be developing into a classy boxer but Gonzalez seems more exceptional at this stage..neither guy has faced someone like the other.

I don't understand how Sithsamerchai is rated ahead of Nkosinathi Joyi at this point. Not that it's really relevant.

John wide UD, Hasegawa SD, Darchinyan TKO, Wonjongkam SD, Calderon UD, Gonzalez TKO

Caballero fights are a nightmare to pick and Poonsawat is a midget even by SBW standards, it would be the most absurd fight cause of the height difference. But while The Ring puts Cab above his actual abilities, he's getting underrated on these boards, whereas Poonsawat is pretty much getting the respect he deserves ever since he stretched Dunne, he's for real. Caballero has a very tough fight ahead at FW but if I'm forced to pick here, I'd say Celestino gives major style and reach problems and UDs Poonsawat.
