I Like Garcia, Malignaggi, Devon, and N'Dam In the Upset
Here are my prediction for tonight's Golden Boy card in Brooklyn, NY:
Garcia handles Morales, who's clearly struggled to make 140 and has possibly slipped even more than last time, by stopping him around the 9th.
---Malinaggi survives a couple of nervous moments and out-slicks Cano by decision.
---Alexander out-boxes and, quite possibly, knocks out Bailey; he Mike Jones knockout has clouded better judgement. Sure, Bailey has the right hand to end matters at any stage in the fight, but let's not forget, he's been stopped before, by less talented fighters than Alexander no less, and this is coming from someone who's still on the fence with Devon.
---The upset of the night will come in the shape of N'Dam-Quillin. I think Hassan's going to be far too evasive and lateral for Quillin, who's very stiff in there and needs to set himself before letting his hands go. Quillin's the home town fighter here, but I think N'Dam, who's very underrated, beats him beyond doubt. Hopefully the judges won't do anything shady by adding even more controversy to the card.
