Albert Alvarez/Alvarez Boxing Photo: Ronatringside.com March 3 at New York on Showtime Deontay Wilder(39-0) vs. Luis Ortiz(28-0)- In looking at both of these monster heavyweights, Ortiz seems to make better use of the ring on offense by boxing opponents from a safe distance and on defense he cuts the ring off pretty good for a guy his size. As for Wilder, Wilder has raw technique but his quick feet, length, and scary power makes it nearly impossible to get into close position to test his chin. Ortiz has a great jab andRead More
By: Albert Alvarez Photo: Ronatringside.com February 16 at Reno, Nevada on ESPN Raymundo Beltran(34-7-1) vs. Paulus Moses(40-3)- for the vacant WBO Lightweight Title- I feel that Moses’s length and awkward stance could trouble Beltran in the early going. However, I feel Beltran’s body punches and tenacious inside game will be too much for Moses to handle. Moses will be there to trade with Beltran and will look to counter with a left cross, it is then that Beltran will answer with a heavy right hook to the body or aRead More

Linares/Gesta And Matthysse/Kiram Fight Predictions

By: Albert Alvarez Photo: Ronatringside.com January 27 on HBO Jorge Linares (43-3) vs. Mercito Gesta (31-1-2)- If you follow my work then you already know that Linares is one of my favorite current boxers. I love the way Linares places his punches together from top to bottom using every angle imaginable. The southpaw hard punching Gesta will need to stay close to Linares to take away some of the comfortable distance that Linares enjoys working from to slice up his opponents. I’m certain that legendary trainer Freddie Roach will advise GestaRead More

Spence/Peterson And Easter/Fortuna Fight Predictions

By: Albert Alvarez  January 20 At New York (Showtime): Errol Spence Jr.(22-0) vs. Lamont Peterson(35-3-1)- For starters, I have always loved the way Peterson operates on the inside. Peterson steps in and places his lead foot between his opponents’ feet and really digs in with hard body shots. Spence on the flip side does the exact same thing except his shots seem to be better placed because of the way he turns all of his shots completely over and his stiff hard jab can be used as a power lead handRead More

Lomachenko/Rigondeaux and Salido/Roman Fight Predictions

By: Albert Alvarez/Alvarez Boxing December 9 At New York (ESPN/ESPN Deportes): Vasyl Lomachenko(9-1) Vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux(17-0)- I don’t even know where to begin on this classic super quick high-speed chess match. In Lomachenko we have a boxer who is constantly setting up traps by leaving the door slightly open right before he slams it shut on you. Lomachenko loves to give a false sense of security to his foes with space and soft punches, he then changes speed variations on his punches and devours you with an ultra-quick well placedRead More
