I hope it goes 12 rounds just so that TR girl on the far left gets to walk around the ring a couple times showing us what beautiful round we are about to watch.

flackoguapo says:

and what's up with Chaves being 148 and it being all gravy? did I miss something ?

I have Chaves by stoppage in an all action fight and sticking with that pick even through all the issues this week. He is still the much bigger man and I think he handles Rios' best while Rios doesn't handle his best. It sounds like we both think it end end by knockout though. Can't wait for this one in a few hours.

King Beef says:

If its the same Chavez that showed up in a valiant effort against Thurman, I gotta go with him, but I don't know if its just my eyes but Rios looks about 10 pounds heavier!

No tricks with your eyes. Bam Bam was a big lightweight. And he is/was the bigger man. Holla!
