Last week, the WBO made Billy Joe Saunders, (26-0, 12 KOs) the mandatory challenger for Demetrius Andrade’s (27-0, 17 KOs) WBO Middleweight Title which is laughable, to say the least. What was the WBO thinking?
This Saturday marks the long awaited return of WBA (Super) Welterweight Champion Keith “One Time” Thurman (28-0 22 KOs).

This is supposed to be a tune up fight for Thurman, who hasn’t been in the ring since March of 2017 due to injuries.
This is a very good fight with a lot of momentum lately. Both sides seem to not like each other, and feel that the other has been talking too much trash. Both fighters are promising victories, but only one will follow through. See who we predict will win.

Charlo is hoping to make a big statement this weekend and prove to the boxing world that he is ready for all the big names he’s been calling out in the middleweight division, most notably Canelo Alvarez.
