Two big fights highlight this week’s ring action. First, the once postponed fight from Germany between Raul Marquez and the heavily favored home town youth, Arthur Abraham for the IBF middleweight title 다운로드.

Abraham had a bout with the flu and had to postpone the original fight about a month back. I had picked Raul Marquez for the upset, and now I get a second chance. What do I do with it? I know some fighters who move up in weight class don’t usually take their big punch with them. But, I haven’t changed my mind, go with the bigger banger, Marquez by knockout.

The other major fight takes place at Madison Square Garden in NYC, when Roy Jones Jr. returns to the ring against tough, master boxer, Joe Calzaghe of Wales. Here is a fight between two aging veterans, but only Calzaghe seems to get better with age.

I never thought I’d say that a fighter was to fast for Jones, and I may well regret saying it now, but, Calzaghe is too quick and baring a terrible decision, should out-box Jones. The fight is at light-heavyweight and could prove very entertaining.***
