The most exciting fighter in the world defends his WBA and IBF middleweight titles against the IBF mandatory contender Dominic Wade.
Gennady Golovkin is about as big of a favorite as you can get over the talented,yet unproven Wade and is likely to deliver "big drama show" as he is so fond on saying.
I recently discussed the IBF as having the most fair manner to determine their top contenders,but yet so many don't participate in their eliminators,so therefore many of their mandatory fighters are weaker than the other organizations.
Roman Gonzalez defends his WBC flyweight title against McWilliams Arroyo on the undercard,
Arroyo is a solid enough fighter to make a good showing,but is unlikely to challenge Gonzalez in a bout that will hopefully set up a title unification fight with Juan Francisco Estrada in the fall.
Nonito Donaire defends his WBO junior featherweight title in his native Philippines vs Zsolt Bedek to complete the weekend.
I lead the challenge over R.L.Malpica at 39-30.
