I'm riding with "Bam Bam" to do a severe Slammie SLAM. "La Joya" will not be able to handle the heat. And Bam Bam is coming forward and will not retreat. So many shots, La Joya is going to have to eat. After five or six rounds, he will be beat. Holla!

After the Lara- Canelo stinkfest, or should I say sleepfest, (I have yet to finish it, what does that say in itself?) I am looking forward to this weekend of boxing. Rios is always exciting and Kovalev is a destroyer.

Good weekend to make up on prior disappointments, NOT including GGG but including Perez vs Cunningham
