In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

HBO judge Harold Lederman will be inducted into the New York State Boxing Hall of Fame. Congratulations to an old friend and the others who deservedly will be inducted with him.

Although Nevada has become the Mecca of boxing in the U.S hwidgen. there is no Nevada Boxing Hall of Fame. I guess it’s understandable as I find it hard to find any native born people worthy, except maybe Gina Carano.

Nevada has had some great refs like Mills Lane and judges who were born elsewhere. The same can be said of the many well known writers of past and present 다운로드. If being native born is the criteria, it may be a long time until there are enough people qualified.***

Two watch able fights this weekend, although not necessarily exciting ones. Both are hard to figure.

NBC Sports will be showing a card from Brooklyn New York, featuring native son Zab Judah in the main event. The fight is for the WBC lightweight crown 82년 김지영 다운로드.

While I can’t see Judah losing before the hometown crowd, he is 34 years old and his best days seem far behind them. Add to that equation the fact that he faces undefeated 24 year old Vincent Paris (22-0 (15), and you just may have the ingredients for an upset.

Judah, a southpaw who hasn’t shown a lot of power in his 4` wins (only three via the KO route), is a good boxer but clearly has seen better days, and perhaps better opponents 다운로드.

Paris is a harder hitter and seems to be on his way up. Still it’s hard to see him winning a decision over Judah in Brooklyn. My guess is he needs a KO.

Paris by TKO midway.

The other fight of interest takes place in Houston Texas, for the WBC super lightweight title and features another aging performer in Erik Morales taking on Danny Garcia 다운로드.

Morales is 35, but is an exciting, in your face type fighter. Garcia, 23, is a bit taller, but gives up three inches in reach to Morales.

Since Morales likes to fight inside, the reach advantage here may be negligible. Hard to say what “El Terrible” has left in his tank. One thing is certain, He will make this an entertaining and exciting fight.
Maybe I’m a bit prejudiced here, but I’ve been a fan of Morales ever since I first saw him fight Crownix html5 viewer download. I think he has to stop Garcia and will late in the fight.
