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.

By: Albert Alvarez/ Photo: November 4 on Showtime Deontay Wilder(38-0) Vs. Bermane Stiverne(25-2-1) Rematch Clash for Wilder’s WBC Heavyweight title- Stiverne places his punches very well together for a heavyweight and unlike most heavyweights, he also attacks the body.
