Margarito/Judah is a crossroads fight for both, the winner will maintain status as a world class boxer, the loser will fade further. Margarito has a lot more left in the tank than Judah, and should take this one. Zab's last A level win was over Cory Spinks, and Margarito is no Spinks. Judah doesn't have a glass jaw, but when he gets tagged, that old Spinners tune rubber band man starts playing in the back ground when Zab gets to the later rounds, and the end is inevitable.
Margarito by KO inside 10 rounds.
Hopkins has the opportunity to prove he was the best of his era with Calzaghe. Both are already all time greats, and easy locks on the Boxing Hall of Fame. Bernard already is mentioned with names like Ray Robinson, Marvin Hagler and Carlos Monzon. Hopkins rates 4th all time for the middleweight division, and has earned a place in the history of boxing that few fighters attain. That said, when an all time great steps up in weight against a world call champion, it is an extremely dangerous move. Shades of Sugar Ray Robinson/Joey Maxim come to mind when I think about this fight.
Joe Calzaghe is no Antonio Tarver. Where Tarver poses and talks trash, Calzaghe works. Joe will be the toughest fight of Bernard's already storied career, coming at a time when Bernard is already well past his prime and Joe is peaking. If these two met 10 years ago, it would be an easy call, and Bernard would have walked away with a victory. But timing is all on the side of Calzaghe.
I too see a Calzaghe decision victory in this one, father time is the fourth corner man working for Joe against Bernard and nobody beats old age, not even the 4th best middleweight champion in the history of boxing.
