The biggest UK card of the weekend has two bouts of note. One of those features the unbeaten David Allen (5-0-1, 3) against the disgraceful Larry Olubamiwo (10-6, 9). Everyone who frequents this site will know that we feel Olubamiwo deserves to be banned from the sport for what he did so we'll be cheering on Allen even if that does ruin our integrity. We keep hoping that every defeat Olubamiwo suffers, including 5 successive defeats coming into this bout, will get him away from this sport but unfortunately he's like a cockroach that just won't go away. It may well take a serious beating to retire him and whilst Allen had a good chance of winning he won't beat Olubamiwo up like we'd hope.
The other bout on the show is one we can be much more positive about as Young Fury (0-0), yet another from the fighting Fury clan, makes his professional debut in a 4 rounder.
On a separate UK card fans will get the chance to see the hotly tipped Adam Machaj (3-0, 3) battled against journeyman Hrvoje Kisicek (8-10, 2). Kisicek seems to have been in the ring with every other top British Heavyweight prospect including Hughie Fury, Anthony Joshia and Gary Cornish. Of those both Cornish and Joshua managed to stop the Croatian and Machaj will be hoping to do the same.
Although the British fans have 3 fights domestically they will also have a serious interest in some of the German action as popular banger David Price (17-2, 15) continues his rebuilding process. Price will be facing Ukrainian Yaroslav Zavorotnyi (16-6, 14). Although Zavorotnyi isn't a great fighter he has mixed in good company with fights aganst Nikolai Valuev, Kubrat Pulev and Alexander Dimitrenko and is likely capable of giving Price a tougher than expected contest.
Staying in Germany there will also be action for the unbeaten and well regarded teenager Ilja Mezencev (4-0, 4) who will be stepping up slightly to battle against Marko Rupcic (3-7-1, 1). Mezencev should win but it is a step up for the 18 year old who we have heard is a "prodigious" talent.
We also have an unbeaten prospect in action in the US as John Wesley Nofire (14-0, 11) putshis impressive record on the line against the more experience but limited Earl Ladson (15-24-1-1, 7). Aged 40 and with just 1 win in over 5 years it's hard to see Ladson beating Nofire here, despite the fact we tend to feel Nofire is a limited fighter himself.
Another unbeaten American inaction is Nathan Luis Rosa (1-0, 1) who will be trying to extend his winning run as he takes on John Moxey (2-3, 1). Both men have wins over John Schimon though we view Rosa's as the "better" win and would have to favour him here.
In South Carolina we're expecting two bouts. One of those will feature veteran Joseph Rabotte (11-26-1, 3) whilst the other will involve the debuting Marquis Dacres (0-0), unfortunately we're unsure who either man will be facing at this moment.
We get more debutants in action in Washington where Kolt Thompson (0-0) will be fighting Mike Hayes (0-0). With both men making their debuts this is a bout that is nigh on impossible to get a read on.
