The combined age of the two fighters in this coming weekend's headlining bout on Spike, courtesy of Premier Boxing Champions, is 85. Antonio Tarver returns for the first time since defeating Jonathon Banks and faces Steve Cunningham. It may even wind up strangely competitive. In the co-feature(s), Marco Huck and Artur Szpilka are showcased, so at least we could get some fun ones.
Depending on where you reside, the biggest news of the weekend might be Lucian Bute's return against Andrea di Luisa on NBC Sports. The Bell Centre in Montreal is bound to be packed and cheering Bute wildly.
There's a matter of the HBO Latino card that featured Dmitry Mikhaylenko, Manuel Avila and Tevin Farmer and happened to be fun, but also news, such as a likely Andre Berto vs Khabib Allakhverdiev bout, the announcement of woeful opponents for Peter Quillin and Adonis Stevenson, and the finalizing of Floyd Mayweather vs Andre Berto -- the ultra, super, megafight that nobody seems to want.
Joining James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Fight City's Patrick Connor this week is writer, co-host of of the Ring Theory podcast and author William Dettloff.
