Fight Picks

I like Chad Dawson over Glenn Johnson; even if you think Johnson won the first fight, I don't think he can fight any better, and Dawson laid an egg the first time around. He'll do enough to win a competitive but not too controversial decision in the rematch. On the undercard, Alfredo Angulo will continue his march back to contender status with a stoppage of Harry Joe Yorgey. After that, maybe a rematch with Cintron.

I'll take David Haye over Nikolai Valuev by decision. I don't think Valuev will be able to find him, and his head --roughly the size of a rhino-- will be an easy target for the Brit. As long as he lets his hands go a little and has the legs to move for twelve rounds, this should be a fairly easy fight for Haye. If he's not in shape, though, or if Valuev slows him down with the jab and leans on him a lot, it could be rough night. One thing is for sure: it will be an ugly match.
