Sometimes it is said that you can’t teach an old dog new tricks 40 넋. Not that he’s old (or a dog) but Michael Katsidis at 30, is a prime example of this. Check his record, and then check his record against southpaws. It’s something worthy of note 큐시트 양식 다운로드.

I take nothing away from Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero, 28, who pretty much out-boxed Katsidis in every round, indicating his past personnel trouble may be far behind him 다운로드.

Two fights this week worth commenting on, both important contests.

The first, from Foxwoods, features Andre Berto, a U.S. Olympian, who record equals his age 다운로드. He’s 27-0 (27) and 27 years old as well. The only negative would be is that he doesn’t seem to have one-punch knockout power.

This fight is for the WBC welterweight crown 다운로드.

At 5’8” he just might need one against tough Victor Ortiz. A strong southpaw who sports a 20-1 mark with twenty coming by way of the knockout 윈도우 10 어도비 플래시 수동 다운로드. He seems to have the one-punch power to go with his southpaw style.

And, making a case for Ortiz is the fact that his only loss was a DQ (not Dairy Queen) against Maidana, who beat Erik Morales last weekend 가요 미디 파일.

Not an easy fight to call by any means, but I’ll take the more polished Berto to take a close decision.

The other bout worthy of note is a junior welter affair that features Amir Khan, 24-1 (17) who will have a height and reach advantage against southpaw Paul McClosky 22-0, (12) 윈도우 8 1 정품 다운로드. The fight is in the UK, so there’s no clear home court advantage for either fighter.

At 24, Khan is seven years younger than McClosky and seems to have a reach advantage as well 자두 김밥 다운로드.

This fight from the UK has a lot of people wondering just how good Khan is, and I think we’re going to find out on Saturday.

Rusty Rubin, formerly the award winning managing editor of Ringsports.com as well as the currently defunct Ringsports Magazine, is the author of three highly acclaimed boxing books! “Woozel, Boxing and Me”, “Off the Canvas” and “Billy Soose, the Champion Time Forgot” co-authored by Tom Donelson. These books are all available at Authorhouse.com, and all major book retailers. They are all more than worth the purchase price, or contact me via this website.

Please allow me to recommend, two other great books, the “Arc of Boxing” by Mike Silver and “My Life among the Icons” by Johnny Ortiz.

In these hard economic times, any or all of these books will make an excellent and inexpensive presents to the boxing fan(s) in your life. They are especially appreciated gifts if the recipient is tired of watching re-runs of sit-coms and the far-less than significant reality shows. Being laid-up a bit of late, I should know. Where’s the Gillette Cavalcade of Sports when you need it?

You and the book-gift recipient will be glad you made the right choice (or the write choice)!***
