In Rusty’s Corner

Rusty Rubin is a veteran boxing writer

A couple of good match-ups on HBO PPV, from Los Angeles, on October 15 다운로드.

First, Jorge Linares takes on Antonio DeMarco in an important lightweight fight.

Linares, 31-1 with 20 KO’s is 26 years of age, making him one year older than his southpaw foe 다운로드.

DeMarco, no slouch in his own right, enters the ring with a record of 25-2, with eighteen of those wins coming via the KO route. He has a slight height and reach advantage, which he may need when fighting a tough opponent like Linares 트와이스 음악 다운로드.

Should be a great, action packed battle, but I’ll give the edge to Linares, who seems to really be a future champion in the making.

The main event on the card features the never-grow-old “Executioner”, Bernard Hopkins, 52-5-2 (32) 다운로드.

His opponent in this light heavyweight match-up is “Bad” Chad Dawson, a strong southpaw, who sports an impressive 30-1 mark with 17 of them coming by way of knockout 다운로드.

Both fighters come in with the same height (6’1”), but Dawson has an inch and half reach advantage.

It’s hard to say when a fighter is on his last legs, particularly someone who still looks impressive at age 46, like Hopkins 다운로드.

I don’t see this being an overly exciting fight, but the difference may well be in ring generalship and a solid chin. Hopkins has never been knocked out 다운로드.

So, until Father Time catches up with BHop, I’ll take him to win a one-sided decision here.
