Default This weekends fights.

Got Sturm on points, bout 117-111. He may not have the success with the jab in this fight as he did with Zbik. Geale is not as stiff or stationary as Zbik, very good footwork and rolls punches well but he has zero power and Sturm will i think land the cleaner eye catching punches. Golovkin will knock Proksa out, im certain of that. He is far to skilled and powerful to let a fighter like Proksa, who makes so many mistakes, off the hook.

Geale will beat Sturm pretty comfortable he is there for taking, I don't even think it will be tough for him tbh. Golovkin should beat Proksa but it will be tight for a few rounds before Golovkin takes over and stops him late on

I think Sturm will beat Geale legitimately. The thing the Aussie has in his favour is his excellent workrate and against Sturm, we've seen how beneficial that can be. However, I believe Sturm is the far classier boxer, he has a great range of shots and probably has the edge in power.

Establishing his jab will be key but I favour him over Geale.

Sturm has looked very beatable recently, nor sure that geale is the man though , especially away from home. Sturm to nick another controversial one.

To be fair to Sturm he did look class in his last fight. I think he wins a legit decision against Geale.

Golovkin by KO mid rounds.

Looking forward to Golovkins fight. He wins inside 8 rounds.

I would love Proska to win for no other reason than it would make Hope the man who beat the man which would be hilarious.

If Carl Wild gets caught flush he might just go and William Warburton should give Limond a good workout.

Lean slightly towards Geale in this.Would be surprised if Sturm had met anyone as fast or skilled.Of course,as has been mentioned,theres always the possibility of a hometowner,as think itll be a distance fight.
Cant see Proksa winning.Golovkin to me looks the best of the lot by some distance,including Martinez.IMO late round stoppage with Proksa having a good go.

De la Hoya was a lot more skilled than Geale will ever be.

Sturm vs Geale > Sturm on points (any way possible).

Golovkin vs Proksa > GGG by T/KO around 6 or 7.
