    As much as I love Canelo-Golovking, this is the fight card I have most been anticipating all year since it was announced. These are real fights between really skilled fighters at 115 pounds. It is a throw back Boxing After Dark card and is going to be special. If Inoue had more exposure, he'd be in everyone's top 10 pound for pound list and will be after Saturday. Cuadras-Estrada is an interesting match of contrasting styles in what should be a high level boxing match that provides its share of action in a competitive fight (like Estrada here by the way). And well we saw Sor Rungvisai-Gonzalez earlier this year and if they fought 100 times it would be all action 100 times. The first will be on FOY lists as will the rematch. Can't wait, counting down the days.

      And Chocolatio, even though I'm picking him to win....isn't a given.
