Munguia vs. O'Sullivan
Jaime Munguia, DEC
There's reeeaally ONLY 1 reason I could think of for why in the ****kk O'Sullivan was given an undeserved title shot, and that was to give Munguia a sweeeet KO with a decent name attached to it. And by "decent" I mean, a guy who's not an ALREADY pre-crushed can. But I just realized this fight is at Middleweight. Sooooo maybe O'Sullivan does make sense. I believe (if it is at Middleweight) it's Munguia's debut at 160lbs. Still don't change the outcome of the fight for me. Munguia "might be" the hardest hitting puncher O'Sullivan has ever faced. I say "might be" because David Lemieux absolutely smashed O'Sullivan within 1 Round. Annnd tho I think Munguia hits a teeenie weeenie bit harder, I don't think he gets Spike outta there within 3 mins. I'm actually looking more like between rounds 4-6.

Dezurn vs. Jimenez
Franchon Crews Dezurn, DEC
I sit here and wonder, what Dezurn's life would be like, if Claressa Shields was never born. They've faced each other since way back in their amateur days. Where you'd often find Shields vs. Dezurn facing off against each other for the USA National Title. It's happened 4x as amateurs, and Dezurn lost every time. Dezurn got rewarded a chance at redemption along with her first paycheck to fight Shields yet again, for her pro debut. Obviously losing again. But the question I ask myself..... How would her life be different without Shields in it? Would she have been the hot commodity coming into her pro debut, being the multiple time National Champion and Olympian (maybe, maybe not). And maybe she'd be undefeated, instead of undefeated since fighting Shields. But it's also possible that Dezurn wouldn't be the person or fighter she is today, without Shields. The old "Iron sharpens iron" line. I often ask myself questions like this...

Mazion vs. Castaneda
Travell Mazion, DEC
Mazion was a KO machine at one time..... But against guys you'd really have to try hard to NOT knock them out. But since being put in front of guys with winning records, the KO has gone into hiding. I believe he's only got 1 KO against a guy with a winning record. We'll see if he can break that pattern.

Burgos vs. Franco
Joshua Franco, DEC
Franco HAS TO BE happy to finally face someone new – for the 1st time in a year and a half. The guy literally just put in 30 rounds against the once highly touted Oscar Negrete.

Yeah Brad you're right bud. My rant about O'Sullivan getting an undeserved title shot was nonesense!!! It is Munguias debut at 160lbs. He has given up his belt at 154 to move up.  Bigger fights for him at Middle. It's another of those PBC vs DAZN situations.  PBC has all the 154 guys (Charlo, Hurd, Williams, Lara and more) DAZN has all the 160 guys (Andrade, GGG, Canelo,) So makes sense.  Munguia could do a bit of damage I reckon.  He is a tremendous puncher, would've liked to see him tested more in hiz debut tho as I don't think Spike will last more than a few rounds!
