UFC Fight Night: Pettis vs. Thompson Main Card Picks

By: Luke Irwin | March 23, 2019 Welterweight Bout: Anthony Pettis (21-8) vs. Stephen Thompson (14-3-1) -While Pettis certainly appears to be washed, Thompson has the tendancy to ugly up fights and make them much closer than they otherwise should have been, one way or another. I don’t think Pettis gets styled on, but his dynamic striking ability is all but toast, so Thompson wins, but it’s ugly and boring as all hell. Thompson via UD. Heavyweight Bout: Curtis Blaydes (10-2) vs. Justin Willis (8-1) -Willis is talking a big game, but I still think that Blaydes has too...

Fighters of the Week

By: Luke Irwin | February 26, 2019 1. Chris Eubank Jr.: Reunited with his beloved IBO Super Middleweight title and finally has his marquee win over a former multiple-time world champion in James DeGale. 2. Anthony Dirrell: Of course, it ended weirdly, with a head clash and a technical decision, but Dirrell was the better fighter and claimed the WBC World Super Middleweight crown. 3. Thiago Santos: Four in a row, eight out of nine as I said in the Bulletin. Santos, after a long run, has at least earned the right to get tuned up by one of...

Premier Boxing Champions: DeGale vs. Eubank Jr. Picks

By: Luke Irwin | February 23, 2019 Vacant IBO World Super Middleweight Championship: Chris Eubank Jr. (27-2) vs. James DeGale (25-2-1) -Good golly, Eubank and his IBO title. At any rate, DeGale needs to step up desperately after a few lackluster showings. If he keeps being passive, like Caleb Truax exploited, he’ll lose again, this time more violently. I don’t think he learned his lesson and views this as a showcase. Eubank via R10 TKO. Heavyweight Bout: Bermaine Stiverne (25-3-1) vs. Joe Joyce (7-0) -A fighter like Stiverne, a true gatekeeper, is Joyce’s next level boss. A win here...
