    Two great boxers are fighting this Saturday. Undefeated Timothy Bradley, making his HBO debut, and one of my personal favorites, Alfredo Angulo, who'll be fighting on the undercard.

    Even though I'm not really a fan of Timothy Bradley, because I think he's ducking Alexander, I always look forward to watch boxing, especially when it's two young talents. Both young, and both future super stars with lots of hype.

    If you're not doing anything Saturday night I highly suggest you watch these fights.

    tbh, now a days no one takes the ABC titles seriously any more, they are just basically tools now used to promote fighters, not to determine whose the best.

    If anything you're better off going with The Ring's titles. even then i don't fully agree with some of their rankings, but it's a lot more accurate than the ABC title holders.


    you can check their rankings and champs here.

    The Ring Pound For Pound Ratings

    if you're a hardcore boxing fan than you usually know who are the top guys in the divisions. Take Mayweather for example, he has no belt but he's easily the best person in his weight class.

    another way to determine if a fighter is a legit champ, is if he has multiple belts instead of just one. sergio martinez has a belt in light middle, and two belts in middle weight. dude's a beast.

    word, the ring magazine titles were the only ones i knew mattered, wasnt sure if they were the only one though

    always seen WBA and WBC around more than the other no name sanctioning bodies though

    Bradley had a great performance. He has the potential to be a monster, he just needs to sit down on his punches more. He straight outclassed the dude from Argentina.
