Oscar De La Hoya put together a great card as well. Golden Boy Promotions always schedules some great undercards with each event. This is no different. With the Main Headlining fight of the night of Saul “Canelo” Alvarez fighting Josesito Lopez. The second headlining fight will feature lightweights Jhonny Gonzales vs Daniel Ponce De Leon. The third headlining fight will feature hard hitting action packed Marcos Maidana vs Jesus Soto Karass.
I am going to order both fights, I am going to watch mostly the fights of Golden Boy Promotions, but I am paying the PPV to Top Rank just to see Chavez vs Martinez. To me, Golden Boy Promotions seems like the better buy, but the bad blood and the rivalry of Chavez vs Martinez is worth my $50.
Predictions : I think Chavez isnt quite ready to fight Martinez, but letting his ego get the best of him. Martinez wins in 8th round knockout.
Canelo makes easy work of Josesito, the weight advantage of Canelo is too much for Lopez, with Canelo knocking out Lopez in the 11th.
Jhonny Gonzales and Daniel Ponce De Leon is an even fight and too hard for me to choose one, its gonna be a great fight though.
Maidana will have a tough time with Karass, both are excellent fighters, but if Maidana can remain calm and strong, he will win the fight in a decision.
Both fights will be taking place SEPTEMBER 15th, 2012
