(warning, some 1% down below)
Taking the day off from writing to hang with my little guy. As of last night Im a third done with the third draft of Golden Griffin 3; hows that for redundant? But true story.
Tomorrow Ill get back again and close the gap some more.
And for some 1%
Tomorrow night Bernard Hopkins goes up against BAD Chad Dawson, and like always, I have some unofficial odds, predictions, and cheap commentary.
The undercard has some notable fights as well.
The first fight of the card will be (forgive any misspellings) Paulie Malinagi vs Lora.
Ive been a fan of Paulie for about six years. I usually dont like guys who cant punch, but Paulie is...well, Paulie, and if you dont know you should check him out.
But unfortunately, not only does he have hands of cotton, but he has hands of glass too and he usually ends up breaking one or the other (or both) during the course of a fight.
Bias and hands aside, I have Paulie winning 70/30 by a lopsided decision.
Holt vs Garcia
Garcia is a young southpaw who hits so hard that if he tapped you on the top of your head your ankles would shatter.
But Im a fan of Holt, hes a do-or-die warrior with a weak chin and that makes for good fights.
Its gonna be a close one, but I have Holt winning 51/49.
Linares vs Demarco
Not much to say on these two. Both are good, hungry fighters who wont lay down for anyone. But I have Linares winning 52/48
And finally, Hopkins, the man who never grows old against Dawson, the future of the light-heavyweight division.
But guess what? I saw Hopkins getting a little old in his last fight and if Dawson can maintain his confidence, its possible to see a first-time-ever knockout of B-Hop.
But, with that said, I have B-Hop winning 52/48 due to experience and craftiness.
