Lots of Scraps
There are loads of good matchups this weekend. I'll take Fernando Beltrán over Monty Meza Clay by decision in what should be an entertaining matchup of featherweights on ESPN tonight. I like Adrian Diaconu by Jean Pascal by decision in what'll be a great atmosphere in Montreal. (Side note: promoters should do more to build them around great fighters hailing from regional towns, a la Montreal and, to a lesser extent, Saint Louis.) Edgar Sosa will knock out Carlos Mela in Monterrey. Wladimir Klitschko is going to jab and hook is way to a boring knockout of Ruslan Chagaev. And lastly, I like Michel Rosales in a knockout of Luis Fernando Uribe in Ensenada.
