    Pretty simple really. Make a hypothetical match up between 2 fighters, and the next person predicts how that fight will go, and gives the next matchup. I'll start.

    Sandy Saddler vs. Salvador Sanchez, 15 rounds, at 124 lbs

    Sanchez would obviously be extremely weight drained from the 2 pound drop off and would be a dead man walking. Saddler by KO.

    Bob Foster vs Michael Spinks at a catchweight of 176.6?

    Spinks for me, stays away from the left as much he can and uses the speed of hand to take a decision, keeps his guard up all night!!

    I can see Foster winning this though, as i see him prolific at the weight, regardless of competition of level. And one could argue of a stoppage, i know people will scream blasphemy because this is a LHW Spinks.

    But i pick Spinks by decision.

    Next.............

    Buchannan vs. Arguello at 135.

    Spinks' greater toughness and versatility allows him to pull out the win.

    Spinks by late round TKO.


    Duran vs. Chavez at 135.

    Arguello by late TKO, after controlling him all the way.


    Now, Duran vs. Chavez at 135. :D

    Duran beats Chavez, though the lightweight version of JCC makes this a classic.

    Are we hogging this thread??

    Gomez vs Barrera at 122

    I think Spinks and Foster can make 176.6 though, they were real pros.

    Seriously Pea, gimme a breakdown of Arguello-Buchanan, im bored out my mind here. Just saw a good first round ko for the british welter title though!


    No disrepect to the opinion of My2Sense, just want Pea's opinion, as i cannot see Ken being 'controlled' by anyone.
