On the bill..

Robert Guerrero vs Selcuk Aydin - interim WBC Welterweight belt
Shawn Porter vs Alfonso Gomez - 10 rounds Light-Middleweight
Hugo Centeno Jr UD Ayi Bruce - 8 rounds Light-Middleweight - Centeno uses his height and reach to control Bruce from range and win every round comfortably.
George Groves TKO 6 Francisco Sierra - 10 rounds Super-Middleweight - Groves overcomes a bad cut, suffered by a clash of heads, to stop Sierra with an impressive knockout finish.

Any predictions?

Gorgeous George is back :happy

Come on Groves :bbb
My predictions..

Groves stops Sierra after 3 or 4 rounds. He's gonna box sharp and break Sierra down with hard punches from range as he manoeuvres round him.
Porter gonna cut Gomez up and force a late stoppage.
Guerrero's gonna put on a masterclass against Aydin and really impress.
Groves wearing blue..

Haye/Valuev gameplan coming up :yep
"George the Saint"?

Groves looking ragged in the first. Sierra hardly moving at all. Standing square on in the middle of the ring with little head movement and a solid high guard. Groves just edging it but some interesting moments.
Shit that looks a bad cut on Groves' right eye.
Yeah clash of heads. Groves covered in blood. If he takes Sierra to war I think he can bomb him out but it's a risky tactic.
Very good fight for first bout of tv undercard.
Groves bad chin showing its ugly head, there. I think you're seeing he neither has a world class chin nor power, in this fight. It's a big problem for a guy that takes risks and likes to trade. He's pretty talented athletically, might be time to go back to the DeGale tactics.
Not sure about that. Groves has power. He doesn't always use it but when he trades with people he can stop them, as he just proved. Obviously it's not at world level yet but he's still improving.
I believe Showtime are only showing Guerrero/Aydin on their main channel. ShoExtreme has the undercard, including the Alfonso Gomez fight.
:lol: The awkward moment when Showtime put up a list of fights that they're showing and BoxNation commentator John Rawling has to hope that they're showing some of the fights mentioned as well.
Man the show has finished 30 mins early..
Ah so they're showing Porter/Gomez on normal Showtime then? Guess they have nothing left to show then and it's just gonna be a half hour break.
Has Groves been on would check thread but I'm lazy
First post of the thread rounds up what's happened so far.

Yeah Groves won. Looked dodgy-ish at times, won pretty much every round though, badly cut in the 3rd (I think) and stopped Sierra with a good finish in the 6th.
Whats Buncey been saying then?
Right now he's talking about how Audley Harrison should fight.. as if he's gonna change his style now he's close to 41 :lol:
Ah fuck sake. Fell asleep on the floor last night right before Porter/Gomez, then woke up about half 5. My niece then gets up at 6 to stop me from getting back to sleep for any longer so I miss the boxing and feel knackered at the same time :-(

Sounds like a good fight though. Will catch up later and post my thoughts
