WEEKEND PREDICTIONS Nov 1, '06 12:07 AM
by Jim for everyone

Kelly Pavlik by mid round KO over Pierre. Liakhovich, KO inside ten rounds against over rated and over hyped Shannon " No Chin " Briggs.

This was a tough one. I'm taking " Pretty Boy " Floyd Mayweather by decision over Argentina's Carlos Baldomir but honestly this fight worries me. Baldomir is tough, strong and determined. He's a solid puncher who can take a good shot. This will not be a walk in the park for Floyd. If he thought Jose Luis Castillo was tough, wait until he meets this guy.

Baldomir reminds me of the late, great Argentine Victor Galindez. He knows his limitations and he knows his strengths too. He is a deceptively cunning fighter who can just break a guy down. This should be a very stern test for Mayweather.

Thanks. I've been trying to think of a South American Fighter who reminds me of Baldomir,but the only ones I was coming up with where guys like Juan Roldan,and Baldomirs Boxing Skills are superior to strictly brawlers like that,and one of his assets is that he KNOWS his assets(and limitations). The Galindez comparison is very astute. My picks:

Pavlik KO 5 over the once promising but now turned journeyman Pierre.
Sergei survives an early scare,and simply runs what I'm sure will be a 260 pound Briggs out of gas for an easy decision,and possible late stoppage.
Mayweather banks a few early rounds and then needs all of them to just nip Baldomir on a close decision.
