Good stuff :good

Oguni-Serie is definitely the most intriguing fight in Japan this weekend, a real 50-50 on paper. Oguni has that unblemished record and is one of the brightest prospects in Asia right now, but I've seen his fight with the journeyman Eric Rapada and the decision in that one could've went either way. Whereas Serie, an awkward fighter to deal with, has been unbeaten in six years and has been a very consistent performer at domestic level in a talented division. Will be very close either way, IMO.

Uchiyama's fight with Farenas is disappointing, but he is looking at Ao or Broner (won't happen) next should he win. I'd also expect Igarashi to beat Jaro comfortably enough.

No one else? Admittedly there's not a lot of standout names apart from the big 2 fights but there's still some decent quality elsewhere.
The undercards on the 2 big ones suck carrots. The only name I recognize at the Chisora undercard is Matthew Hall, and even then I struggle to see a face in my mind next to the name.
And on the Khan card we have Guerrero vs Medina wich looks somewhat decent, but I was the one that predicted Guerrero to be stopped by top notch journeyman Brewer a year ago.

Johnson vs Fonfara is nice... (can you imagine Fonfara being the favorite in this bout?!?)
And Suckhotsky vs White of course.
