Poignant New Predictions

Rodriguez vs. Gonzalez
I adopt Jesse Rodriguez at -2500. He has a resilient lapel choke. Rodriguez can usurp the previous pitfalls.

Akhmadaliev vs. Tapales
I tap Murodjon Akhmadaliev at -400. He has an obscene liver kick. Akhmadaliev will likely incorporate the senses.

Ford vs. Magdaleno
I desire Ray Ford at -300. He has a creative gas tank. Ford will likely whack the cake. It's a lock!

Mattice vs. Cesena
I crave Thomas Mattice at -150. He has a fancy takedown. Mattice shall clinch the cage.

Castro vs. Lopez
I feel disposed to Marc Castro at -3333. He has a lascivious indian deathlock. Castro is gonna bury the canvas.

Madrimov vs. Igbokwe
I tap Israil Madrimov at -2000. He has a zany side kick to the throat. Madrimov can hasten the underdog.

Prediction Comments

Rodriguez vs. Gonzalez
Jesse Rodriguez, TKO, R6
Bam about to absolutely destroy this guy!!! Why isn't everyone picking KO?????? There's levels in fight sports Bam is about 20 above Gonzalez!!!!!

Akhmadaliev vs. Tapales
Murodjon Akhmadaliev, TKO, R9
MJ is very good, possibly great!! Now that the Monster Inoue has moved to 122lbs MJ could have a huge fight in the near future. Tapales is tough but he's getting stopped here late. Again, levels!!!

Ford vs. Magdaleno
Ray Ford, DEC
Real test for Ford here. Magdaleno is a recent World Champion and defeated Nonito Donaire!!!! He has been inactive but if Magdaleno is anywhere near the level he was not so long ago then Ford has a tough night. It was only last year that Ford "lost" to Edward Vasquez only to be gifted a decision. So it's not like Ford has been flawless.

Mattice vs. Cesena
Thomas Mattice, DEC
I am always wary of unknown Mexican punchers!!! But I like Mattice, he had some rough decisions go against him, thought his career at this level (TV fighter) was done. Picked up some nice wins as an underdog against undefeated prospects and got himself signed up to a Matchroom contract. Surely he won't lose and I have him to win the decision here but, again, look out for the unknown Mexican banger!!!!

Castro vs. Lopez
Marc Castro, TKO, R6
Fresno Musk for the KO!!!!!

Madrimov vs. Igbokwe
Israil Madrimov, TKO, R6
Had genuine high hopes for Madrimov a couple of years ago. Thought e was on that Lomachenko path. Unfortunately his career has stalled for years now. This another nothing fight.
