Boxing Doubleheader Tonight
Boxing Doubleheader Tonight
There's a pair of good fights on tonight, one on Showtime and the other on HBO. On Showtime, lightweights Diego Corrales and Joel Casamayor meet in the rubber match of a trilogy. On HBO, Russian giant Nikolai Valuev puts his heavyweight belt on the line against Monte Barrett. My cousin Scott is here with a couple quick blurbs on each fight.
It seems like once or twice a year both HBO and Showtime have fight cards on the same night. Tonight just happens to be one of those nights.
It should work out where you can watch both fights without missing anything.
At 9:00 PM on Showtime is Diego Corrales taking on Joel Casamayor in their third lightweight fight against one another. Over on HBO at 10:00 PM is heavyweights Nikolai Valuev vs Monte Barrett fighting for the one belt that Valuev holds. Both shows will have a fight prior and normally it works out where both main events can be seen with no conflicts.
Pick your pleasure. Would you rather seen two lightweights go at it in what should be another brawl or two monsters that aren’t as pretty to watch????
I am actually interested in both. Diego Corrales is one of my favorite fighters to watch. He loves to stand and trade with anyone. This fight is actually a rubber match. Corrales lost by TKO in their first meeting and then avenged that loss by winning a decision in the second fight. The styles of Diego and Cassamayor always make for a night of entertaining boxing.
On to the big boys.
When talking about Valuev, his size is the first thing that comes to mind. He is 7 foot tall and weighs in at a whopping 325 pounds. Barrett isn’t small, but when looking up at Nikolai it sure appears that way. Monte is 6 foot 3 and 230 pounds.
I have only seen Valuev highlights and I am very interested in seeing him against a pretty good fighter in Barrett.
Is the freak show for real? Does he have any skills or he just big and tall?
I am very interested in finding out. I imagine many people are. I suggest tuning in and finding out. Everyone loves the Heavyweight division and it won’t get any bigger than the monster that will be climbing into the ring tonight.
