The next date to mark on your calendar, particularly if you agree with me that youth is not only the future of boxing, but of the world, is Nov 다운로드. 16th, when Team Los Angeles takes on Team Calgary, in a fun event at the Quiet Canyon Casino in Montebello, CA. For more information, please call 818-563-2094.***

In keeping with my policy of picking hard fights, this week features two important fights that figure to have a lot of non-stop action 다운로드.

The first pick comes in a fight in Tucson, AZ. and features two tough Mexican fighters in Rocky Juarez and Juan Manuel Marquez. Should be action packed, but I have to believe that Marquez is the stronger fighter with a better chin 구글 독스. He should register a late stoppage here.

The other fight is from Wales, where Joe Calzaghe and Mikkel Kessler both put their undefeated tabs on the line. Kessler seems like the real thing, a fast fighter who can go with Calzaghe as few can, but he has to knock him out or look for a cut stoppage here, because Calzaghe gets a big home-field advantage. I look for Kessler to score a TKO mid-way. However, if reports are correct that Kessler has an injured hand, all bets are off.***

After trying for almost 18 months for a major fight to return to ring glory, Reggie Johnson ( former2 time champion) gets back into the ring with Glencoffe Johnson in a fight held in Lake Charles, LA. On Nov. 17th.

It’s a great fight on paper, and if these guys are anywhere close to their best, it should be a great fight to watch. Congratulations to Kerry Daigle of for putting this outstanding fight together. More info to follow as it comes across my desk.***
