Default The boxing 2010 thread...starting with Mosley v Berto

After the success of the 2009 thread, and with the end of the year fast approaching, I thought it was time that a new thread was created.

2010 will have to go some to match 2009 in terms of big fights.

Yuriorkis Gamboa is fighting later this month, but for me the first really big fight of the year once again involves Sugar Shane - who's fighting for the first time since he battered Margarito last January (top performance aswell). This time he's up against Berto, who's fast, flashy and has been labelled a 'young Mosley' by some in the industry.

Very interesting fight imo, and a great test for Berto. I think Mosley has to start as favourite, and if he can fight like he did against Margarito, I'm leaning toward him. Berto can probably beat Mosley for pure handspeed, but his defence isn't the best, and this is a big step-up for him.

March and April see the second-round of the Super Six tournament, where Froch, Abraham and Ward can basically put themselves into the quarter-finals if they win their fights.

Later in the year, we may see David Haye v a Klitschko brother.

Another fight I'd like to see is Pavlik v Williams. Initially I thought Williams would win, but after watching him against Martinez a few weeks ago, its obvious that his defence is non-existent, and I think Pavlik would probably knock him out.

Oh, and in other news, Pacquaio is suing the Mayweathers, De la Hoya, Goldenboy Boy Promotions etc...

Would prefer it if they settled it in the ring:

Maidana is Khan's mandatary but it looks like he's going after the WBC champ Devon Alexander.

It will probably be Malignaggi in April.

saw maidana v ortiz, fantastic fight but i think ortiz could have outboxed maidana comfortably if he'd tried. maidana was pretty unimpressive dropping a decision to kotelnik.

He can be outboxed and i wouldn't be totally surprised to see Alexander do it.

If i was Khan i would stay well away though because he can hit very fucking hard.
