Boxing Challenge is back!
Lots of chance for Ramon Malpica to gather some points and make a late run from the pack like Concern in the Breeders Cup Classic.
I hold a 96-80 lead at this writing.
The big bout features the best middleweight in the world defending his three titles against the best welterweight in the world in a bout that you would think is a mismatch physically,but not as much as you would think.
Gennady Golovkin struggles finding opponents and so does Kell Brook.
It's not a perfect matchup,but give Brook credit for giving it a shot.
Roman Gonzalez goes after the junior bantam title against undefeated Carlos Cuadras,Daniel Jacobs against another barely breathing foe,talented Robert Easter shooting for his first title and add in the untelevised fights of note and you have an awesome boxing weekend-even if you have to find some on YouTube.
