Bouts in Mexico
One thing we didn't see in boxing 4 or 5 years ago was the Mexican Heavyweight. Whilst they are still rare we have began to see more and more of them. One such bout takes place this Thursday as Mexico's very own Juan Luis Lopez Alcaraz (3-7-2, 1) battles US born Scott Alexander (8-0-1, 4). Although we're unsure on the two men in question it's hard to see anything but a victory for the unbeaten man.

The major Heavyweight action on Friday took place in the US, on Saturday ALL the Heavyweight action seems to be taking place in the US.
The most notable action of the day takes place in Utah on a card that appears to have 3 Heavyweight contests on.
In terms of high profile names the most high profile is veteran Billy Zumbrun (26-13-1-1, 16), the 40 year old "Kid" takes on Henry Namauu (10-6, 5) who enteres this contests on the back of 1 victory in his last 4.
Although Zumbrun is probably the most noteworthy name the most promising contest, seems to be Damian Wills (30-3-1, 23) against Dante Craig (20-15-1, 15). Both are experienced and whilst neither will ever become a genuine contender it should be an entertaining contest as long as it lasts.
The other Heavyweight contest on the card sees the unbeaten Scott Alexander (8-0-1, 4) fighting Geovanni Sarran (4-6, 1). On paper you'd assume Alexander was the big favourite though his opponents to date have been very limited and Sarran could be considered a step up for the unbeaten man.
Outside of Utah there's a bout in Colorado as Chris Green (8-7-1, 6) takes on the winless Gary Cobia (0-3). It's a bout that we're struggling to get excited about and can't see anything but a victory for Green despite the fact he's nothing special himself.
