Frampton vs Avalos


This Saturday on the AWE channel, Carl Frampton defends his IBF Jr. Featherweight title against Chris Avalos.  I’ll give the Swag Science prediction for this bout as well as other notable fights that will be taking place this weekend.

Carl Frampton vs Chris Avalos: IBF Jr. Featherweight Title Fight (AWE/Belfast Ireland)

Match Up Thoughts- This is a real solid fight that should have some exciting moments.  Frampton is an undefeated talented boxer puncher with a solid blend of speed and skills.  Avalos is an aggressive in your face puncher.  I think the challenger will make a good go at early, but once the champion  gets into his groove, I can see a boxing lesson coming.  Frampton has good ring generalship and isn’t afraid to sit down and punch every now and then.  His movement will allow him to avoid the big bombs an unless Avalos comes through with a crazy body attack this could be a long night for the challenger.  I see Carl stopping Avalos late in a good fight where we might see a knockdown or two.

Official Prediction – Frampton by Late KO/TKO

Tyson Fury vs Christian Hammer: Heavyweight Fight (BoxNation/London)

Match Up Thoughts- Fury will win in a rather dull affair.  He’ll use his size and length to box from a distance to eventually wear his opponent down for a stoppage.  The post fight interview will probably be more exciting.  Fury has some decent boxing skills (for Fury standards), so he should win this clean.  Hopefully Hammer doesn’t come to collect a check and provides some effort an action for the fans.

Official Prediction- Fury by Mid Rd KO/TKO

Dmitry Chudinov vs Chris Eubank Jr. : Middleweight Fight

Match Up Thoughts- This should be a pretty exciting affair.  Could be a toss up really.  Chudinov has some solid skills and whatever Eubanks Jr. lacks in that department he makes up for it in power, speed, and determination.  I think Eubunk knows he needs to win this fight and get his career back on track.  I expect him to find some way to gut it out and win.

Official Prediction – Eubanks Jr. by Decision (prolly a close one)

2015 Prediction Record – (5-2)

Golovkin vs Murray


The Swag Science is back on  This Saturday, HBO Boxing is having a specially timed broadcast of undefeated middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin defending his belt against the tough veteran and former title challenger Martin Murray.

Gennady Golovkin vs Martin Murray (160lbs Middleweight)

Match Up Thoughts- Murray is probably the biggest test to Golovkin thus far, but it seems like every guy is touted as such before the eventual destruction.  Murray has solid skills, a big physical frame, good strength, and his speed is about average.  Those traits alone, should be able to push GGG some, but Murray lacks a real killer instinct.  He’s only aggressive in spots and that has always hurt him in his biggest fights (Martinez & Sturm) It’s like he can’t find that 2nd gear that allows him to take the fight away from the judges.  Against Golovkin I doubt it will even get to that point, but it could if Murray decides to box aggressively.  I see Triple G ripping body shots around Murray’s turtle shell guard, slowly breaking him down.  Murray will try to make a fight out of it, but will shell up once again when Golovkin starts to target the head.  This process will probably repeat itself for a couple of rounds until the challenger is stopped in the middle rounds.  Murray is the best available opponent and is top 5 in the division so hopefully GGG gets some credit for the victory,

Official Prediction – Golovkin by Mid Rd KO/TKO

2015 Prediction Record – (4-2)

Alvarado vs Rios 3

Rios-Alvarado-3-Poster is back with another edition of the Swag Science when Boxing returns to HBO this Saturday night with the rubbermatch bout between Mike Alvarado and Brandon Rios.  Here’s the predictions for that card.

Mike Alvarado vs Brandon Rios (Welterweight)

I think Rios has looked the worse out of the two  while Alvarado has had more recent distractions.  I’m going with Alvarado in winning another competitive decision were both fighters have their moments.  I feel like Mike is going to control the fight more with his boxing.

Official Prediction – Alvarado by Decision

Gilberto Ramirez vs Maxim Vlasov (Super Middleweight)

Official Prediction – Ramirez by Mid KO

2015 Prediction Record – 3-1

Khan vs Alexander

Khan vs Alexander

Boxing fans can rejoice because this weekend will probably be the biggest weekend of boxing for the year 2014.  HBO has a good triple header lined up and Showtime has a pretty decent Quadruple header as well.  As always, I’ll give you the Swag Science breakdown and prediction for all of the bouts.  I’ll even give predictions for the Showtime bouts that will be on Friday night.  Enjoy.

Amir Khan vs Devon Alexander (welterweight) *Showtime Saturday Night*

This is about as even a fight as you can get with these two facing off.  Both boxers have solid skills as well as talent and athleticism to boot.  Only real difference is Devon is a southpaw.  Both fighter also have glaring flaws too.  Khan has chin and punch resistance issues, while Alexander still grunts when he throws punches and has a hard time making adjustments.  This is a toss up bout.  I think the fight will be a chess match with a lot of feinting and half jabs.  Alexander will be the best person Khan has faced in about 2 years since the Danny Garcia fight.  Khan is still vulnerable to left hands and Alexander is a southpaw with a decent one.  I can see a knockdown for either guy, but no stoppage.  If Khan wins it’s because he was busier.  If Alexander wins, it’ll probably be because he hurt Khan consistently.  I think Devon wins a close fight that will be ugly and frustrating at times.

Official Prediction – Alexander by Decision

Keith Thurman vs Leonard Bundu (welterweight)

This is a decent match up.  Thurman is an exciting boxer puncher.  Bundu is an undefeated skilled southpaw boxer.  I think Bundu will have some moments early when Keith comes out trying to bomb him out.   It’s just that once the rounds start going by and Thurman starts to settle down, Bundu will probably start catching that work.  Thurman will pot shot and once he hurts the older fighter, he’ll go for the kill.

Official Prediction – Thurman by Late KO

Jermall Charlo vs Lenny Bottai (jr. middleweight)

Jermall stops the over matched opponent after a few pedestrian rounds.

Official Prediction – Charlo by Mid Rd KO

Jermell Charlo vs Mario Lozano (jr. middleweight)_

Jermell will jab this guys ears off all night in a boring ass fight.

Official Prediction – Charlo by Decision. 

Victor Ortiz vs Manuel Perez (welterweight)

You’ll never know which Ortiz will show up.  He’ll either come to the ring in his quitter mentality or go beast mode like he did against Berto.  Hopefully he gets his shit together and takes care of business.  Perez isn’t a complete bum, but he shouldn’t be able to win this fight if Ortiz takes this serious.

Official Prediction – Ortiz by Late KO

Abner Mares vs Jose Ramirez (featherweight)

Mares got rid of Virgil Hunter as a trainer and should be back to his old seek and destroy ways in this match up.

Official Prediction – Mares by Late KO

Beibut Shumenov vs Bobby Thomas (light heavyweight)

Shumenov gets back into the win column with this fight.

Official Prediction – Shumenov by Mid Rd KO

Errol Spence vs Mike Arnaoutis (welterweight)

Spence is the truth so far and he should be too much for a well past it Mighty Mike.

Official Prediction – Spence by Early KO

Timothy Bradley vs Deigo Chaves (welterweight) *HBO Boxing Saturday Night*

This a good little match up right here.  Bradley is a very versatile boxer.  He has the skills to out-box Chaves if he uses his jab and footwork.  Chaves can box too, but his true strength is in his power punching and pressure.  He has the ability to make Bradley engage him which is his best way to win the fight.  I think we’ll get an entertaining fight with both guys having their moments, but in the end Bradley will overcome and win a competitive decision.

Official Prediction – Bradley by Decision

Matt Korobov vs Andy Lee ( WBO middleweight title fight)

Another good fight where both boxers are skilled and have some decent power.  Lee is more fluid in his movement, but his defense and ability to take a punch is average at best.  Korobov is a little slower, but more steady in his pace.  I think he’ll be able to outbox Lee in a close fight that might end in a stoppage.

Official Prediction – Korobov by Late KO

Mauricio Herrera vs Jose Benavidez (jr. welterweight)

Herrera is a big step up in class for Benavidez.  I think he outboxes the kid down the stretch to win a decision after having some pretty good back and forth action earlier in the fight.

Official Prediction – Herrera by Decision

Erislandy Lara vs Ishe Smith (jr. middleweight) *Friday Night Showtime)

This has the potential to be one of the most boring fights of the year.  With that said, Lara is the better boxer (not by much) and should be able to outbox Smith who’s only real chance of winning is outworking and smothering the Cuban.  Lara can gun for the knockout or choose to box.  He has more options.

Official Prediction – Lara by Decision

2014 Prediction Record – (69-25)

Lemieux vs Rosado

Lemieux vs Rosado

HBO boxing is back this weekend with a pretty damn good triple  header card from the Barclays Center in Brooklyn New York.  I’ll give my Swag Science break down of the main event as as the undercard bouts.  I will also drop predictions for other fights that will be happening this weekend.  Enjoy.


David Lemieux vs Gabriel Rosado (Middleweight) HBO*

This is good main event where I believe fans will be treated to some good back and forth action.  Lemieux punches harder and is a much stronger physical fighter, but Rosado has the better technique and skills.  He’s also looked better against stiffer competition.  Lemieux needs to start out fast and try and get Rosado out of their early without punching himself out either because if he doesn’t the always tough Rosado will make for a long night.  Rosado cuts and swells easily, but he’s game and has the better stamina than Lemieux.  If he can make the fight go some rounds, it’s possible that he could drown the bigger puncher.  This fight is a toss up.  Both boxers usually lose whenever they step up.  I think Rosado will catch some real heat early and look shook, but will eventually work his way back into the fight and take control.  I’m not sure if he’ll get a knockout, but I think he’ll control most of the rounds in the 2nd half and win a close decision.

Official Prediction – Rosado by Decision

Thomas Dulorme vs Hank Lundy (Jr. Welterweight) HBO*

This is another even match up that should provide some fireworks.  Dulorme is the naturally bigger boxer with the harder punch, but his chin and durability isn’t the best.  He has some quick hands and solid skills too.  I look for him to try an establish the jab early and then working off of that.  Lundy I believe is the all around better boxer, but he’s prone to have defensive/mental lapses in fights (although not recently).  If he sticks to a solid game plan, he should be able to outbox Dulorme.  This is a tough one to call, but I think Dulorme outworks Lundy who is known to not move his hands enough sometimes.  This fight could go either way really.

Official Prediction – Dulorme by Decision

James De La Rosa vs Hugo Centeno Jr. (Jr. Middleweight)

This fight has a nice contrast of styles and should be a quality viewing.  I think De La Rosa’s movement will give Centeno fits and will win a competitive decision because of it.  Rosa has more skills, but I didn’t like how he was barely able to hang on to the win towards the end of the Angulo fight where he was dominating beforehand.  To his credit he did gut it out.  I think the same thing happens here in another close win.

Official Prediction – Rosa by Decision

Jean Pascal vs Roberto Bolonti (Light Heavyweight) Montreal/Canada*

Pascal should be able to stop this guy within the distance.  He might struggle a little bit before it happens though.

Official Prediction – Pascal by Mid Round KO

Brian Viloria vs Armando Vazquez (Flyweight) UNIMAS*

Official Prediction – Viloria by Mid Round KO

2014 Prediction Record – 67-23

Crawford vs Beltran

Crawford vs Beltran1

HBO Boxing is back on this Saturday night with an excellent Top Rank promoted card where rising undefeated star Terence Crawford takes on the tough always exciting veteran Raymundo Beltran for the undisputed lightweight championship of the world.  I’ll give the Swag Science breakdown and prediction for that fight as well as the undercard.  In addition, I’ll drop my prediction for the Fury/Chisora and Saunders/Eubank Jr bouts as well.

Terence Crawford vs Raymundo Beltran ( Lightweight Championship) HBO

This is a great match up.  Crawford is coming in off a great win over Gamboa and Beltran has been holding it down for the longest by giving fans good scraps while beating top contenders (and getting robbed in the process sometimes).  Crawford has the better skilsl and appears to be the bigger man, while Beltran is skilled too,  he also possess a determination that is hard to topple.  He’s good at jabbing his way in and outworking opponents in close and at mid range.  Crawford is better at boxing from a distance and picking his spots.  Crawford is a sucker for starting fights out slow.  He did that against Burns as well as Gamboa.  The thing is I felt that those two boxers didn’t have the strength or power to prevent Terence from eventually taking over.  Beltran goes hard for 12 rounds.  Even when he slows down a little, he’s still in your grill digging into your body.  Crawford needs to establish the distance early and let his hands go enough to stop Beltran from getting into his groove .  Beltran needs to cut off the ring and stay busy when Crawford is trying to think.  I feel like this fight will turn into another classic boxer versus pressure fighter match up.  Those bouts are usually pretty entertaining style clashes.  I think Crawford has some rough moments throughout the fight, but will ultimately do enough to win more rounds and separate himself from Beltran who I believe will be pretty game.

Official Prediction – Crawford by Decision.

Evgeny Gradovich vs Jayson Velez (Featherweight Title Bout) HBO

This is another great match up.  I actually think this fight could possibly steal the show.  You have to come forward fighters that like to throw bombs.  Gradovich is good at pressuring opponents and getting his hard shots off frequently.  Velez is more of an aggressive boxer puncher.  This just screams slug fest, but fights aren’t fought on paper.  Gradovich has definitely fought the better competition.  I think that will serve him well in this bout.  I can see both boxers getting hurt or dropped.  It’s that I think Gradovich will be better at overcoming that adversity and will pull himself together and keep going.  Velez should try to clip Gradovich early because if he doesn’t I can see him getting outworked and stopped late in the fight just based off of Gradvich’s work rate.  This a true toss up bout. I just hope it’s entertaining.

Official Prediction – Gradovich by Late KO/Stoppage

Tyson Fury vs Dereck Chisora (Heavyweight) ESPN 3

This is a solid rematch that has been talked about for quite some time.  Fury won the first bout which was close an entertaining.  I think Chisora evens things up this Saturday by outworking the giant heavyweight.  Fury hasn’t been that active lately and Chisora has been the opposite.  Hopefully we get a good scrap out of it.  I think the fight will be close either way.

Official Prediction – Chisora by Decision

Billy Joe Saunders vs Chris Eubank Jr.

This is a real even match up.  Saunders has more experience and his skills are a bit more polished.  Eubanks Jr is the more naturally talented athlete, but with less experience.  He’s also still a little stiff an raw at times.  This is another bout that could be viewed as a toss up.  As of now, I’m leaning more towards the more skilled and experienced out of the two which is Saunders.  I think he out-boxes Eubank Jr. in a close fight that might end up being controversial.

Official Prediction – Saunders by Decision

Pacquiao vs Algieri


This Saturday night on HBO ppv boxing we’ll be treated to a Top Rank promoted card that features a main event of Manny Pacquiao vs Chris Algieri.  I’ll give you the special video breakdown and prediction for that bout.  In addition to that, I’ll also break down and give predictions for the under card bouts.  We also have a pretty big card on AWE Saturday afternoon that I’ll also be giving predictions for.  Grab a beer or a stiff drink, sit down, and enjoy.  Thanks

Manny Pacquiao vs Chris Algieri (Welterweight Title Bout) HBO Broadcast*

Official Prediction – Pacquiao by Decision

Vasyl Lomachenko vs Chonlatarn Piriyapinyo (Featherweight Title Bout)

Lomachenko finally returns to the ring after his big win over hyped up prospect Gary Russell Jr.  He’ll be in there with a relatively unknown boxer, but if Chonlatarn has solid professional experience and a never say die attitude he could make this bout interesting.  With that said, it probably won’t be enough to defeat the much more skilled Lomachenko who should be able to box and stop the rugged challenger.

Official Prediction – Lomachenko by Mid Rd KO/Stoppage

Jessie Vargas vs Antonio DeMarco (Junior Welterweight Bout)

This is a real good match up.  Vargas is a solid boxing talent, but for some reason his fights always turn out tougher than they should be.  He’s already had 2 fights this year that were a little too close for comfort.  Hell, I thought he flat out lost his last fight.  Vargas will be facing a former champion in DeMarco who’s a southpaw that is rangy and can punch.  Usually when Demarco shares the ring with someone as good as him he loses horribly.  Just look back at the Valero and Broner fights.  Now he did pull out a comeback for the ages against Linares and he did blast out John Molina in 1 round who just gave Soto and Matthysse hard ass fights.  Vargas has yet to have those type of performances.  Usually he just shows up to do enough to win and that’s it.  I don’t think that mentality will help him against a guy like DeMarco who has a way of imposing himself on fighters that don’t bring it to him.  I think Vargas will box timidly and win some early rounds, but eventually Demarco will increase the pressure and a make it a long night.  I think Demarco wins this one, but it’s close.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Vargas survives a gut check to win a close one.

Official Prediction – DeMarco by Decision

Zou Shiming vs Kwanpichit OnesongchaiGym (Flyweight bout)

Shiming has been constantly improving lately.  Sure, he isn’t a world beater just yet, but he’s definitely on the way.  I expect him to look good in another hometown bout and win an entertaining decision.

Official Prediction – Shiming by Decision

Tony Bellew vs Nathan Cleverly 2 (Cruiserweight bout) AWE Broadcast*

This is a rematch with a lot of bad blood.  Cleverly won the 1st bout back in 2011 and since then, both have gone on to rack up victories although both ending up getting soul clapped by the best in the light heavyweight division (Kovalev and Stevenson) This time around they’ll be fighting at the cruiserweight limit.  I think Cleverly is the better skilled boxer and that he’ll win another close fight by sticking with his boxing.  I wouldn’t be surprised if Bellew were to pull through this time around.  Both guys are about as evenly matched as you can get.

Official Prediction – Cleverly by Decision

James DeGale vs Marco Antonio Periban (Super Middleweight bout)

This is a solid bout between boxer puncher DeGale and rugged brawler Periban.  Skills usually pay the bills and DeGale has the advantage in that department.  I think he’ll win enough of the rounds by boxing and using his skills.  Periban will make it competitive and possibly rock James a few good times, but I’m not sure if he’d be able to put him away.  I think DeGale survives the few rough moments he has and wins a decision.

Official Prediction – DeGale by Decision

George Groves vs Denis Douglin (Super Middleweight bout)

Groves looks to score his 2nd victory after losing to Froch by devastating KO earlier this year.  He’ll be in there with the limited, but always game Douglin.  This should be a good fight for as long as it lasts.  I think Grove’s superior talent and skills will be too much for  Douglin who should be outclassed if Groves is serious about making another run at the title.

Official Prediction – Groves by Decision

Roman Gonzalez vs Rocky Fuentes (Flyweight Title Bout) Japan*

Roman Gonzalez is back in the ring again to defend his titles against solid veteran Rocky Fuentes.  This should be a very entertaining bout.  Fuentes is game and has skills to boot.  I just don’t think it’ll be enough to deal with Gonzales who is on another level.  Gonzales will pressure him until he eventually becomes overwhelmed by body shots and brutal combinations

Official Prediction – Gonzalez by Late KO/Stoppage

2014 Prediction record 59-20
