My Picks: Canelo vs Lopez and Martinez vs Chavez Jr

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, 158 Sergio Martinez 159...IT'S ON!! Photo credit Miguel Salazar
Not sure what to think about this fight. A year and a half ago I would have picked Martinez easy. Chavez built up some good credibility since then. Lately though he's been distracted during training. Martinez is taking this fight serious, maybe a little too serious. He's a little out of character. That might mean something and it might mean nothing. Martinez wins a harder than expected (by him) fight. UD.

I'm picking Josesito to upset Alvarez. That's the look of determination and confidence. If he wins this one, especially if he knocks out Canelo, he'll be "The Man!

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez is set to fight Josesito Lopez at the MGM in Las Vegas on September 15th. This comes after long speculation on who Alvarez would fight next after various opponents fell through.

'You can't fool me',m'man;you originally criticized Lopez's management for going along with this-and you were proven right...

True Brian, and I'm still critical of them for pushing this fight on him but I was still hoping for an upset. At 140 or 147, Lopez can really make his mark. A fight with Danny Garcia would be dynamite!!

Yeah-and I sure wish we had Lopez-Garcia or Lopez-Malignaggi to look forward to next month rather than Garcia-Morales II.
