In Rusty’s Corner

An important, interesting and probably very exciting fight taking place this Saturday night at the Silver Dome in Pontiac, Michigan 다운로드. This fight will be shown on HBO and should be exciting to watch.

This is a fight that can help a depressed State, like Michigan, but will it draw enough fans to even show a profit 주님의 임재 앞에서 다운로드. Nevada is also badly hurt by the economy, but we know that celebs from Hollywood often venture into Sin City to attend these exciting events.

Never the less, this fight is in Pontiac, Michigan, so all we can do is hope it’s a huge success 아저씨 영어자막 다운로드.

Facing off in the 12-rounder for the WBC/WBO light welterweight title are two undefeated gladiators, who don’t mind going toe-to-toe for as long as needed 라이즈 오브 네이션즈 다운로드.

Neither Devon Alexander, 22, nor Tim Bradley are big knockout punches, but both have the desire and ability to win the title.

Alexander 21-0 (13) is the taller of the two and has a two inch reach advantage, add to that what appears to be superior punching power, and you have a fight that should result in a big edge for the southpaw, Alexander

Bradley, 27, is certainly no slouch abaqus 다운로드. At 26-0 with 11 knockouts, “Desert Storm” has been known to do whatever is necessary to win a fight, including getting in a few punches when the referee is out of position to see 생일 초대장 다운로드.

Neither fighter seems to fight as often as I would like, but not enough of a layoff to be burdened with ring-rust. Bradley last fought in July of last year while Alexander last saw combat a month later 닷넷 프레임워크 3.5.

Bradley has seen a bit better opposition and has handled them well, but Alexander has faced a few solid fighters himself, so it’s going to be hard to find an edge on that level.

All things considered, a slight edge should go to Alexander, but I’ll take the more experienced Bradley via a close decision.
