    Default Ricky Burns-Michele Di Rocco - Sat/Sky

    Anyone that reads my drivel will know I don't give a shit about alphabets, however, this is for the WBA lightwelter title, should Burns win he becomes a three weight "world" champ (whoop dee doo).

    Di Rocco hasn't faced anywhere near the level of comp Burns has (Lenny Daws gave him a close fight). Even Burns recent defeats don't look bad with hindsight. Crawford is one of the best fighters in the world, Zlaticanin went to America to cause another big upset and remains unbeaten, and Figueroa is a middleweight that had a tag team partner in Laurence Cole.

    Neither are punchers but Di Rocco Isn't in Burns class, be surprised if Burns can't force him to quit.

    Burns by KO is 5/1
    3-Time SADDO PREDICTION COMP CHAMPION.

    All over this one like a ginger kid on the girl he's just drugged with rohypnol.

    It's not even the best card of the weekend, with Bellew/Makabu tomorrow, but I'm sure I'll be tuning in. If you think Burns becoming a three weight world champ is slightly ridiculous, Willie Limond on the undercard is talking like he's going to be the next opponent if Burns wins. Yes, Willie Limond challenging for a world title.

    And by the way, no Champions League final spoilers tonight please, watching the highlights after this card is done.

    McCarthy - Dickinson should be a decent scrap on the undercard. Havent been impressed wih McCarthy in the fights Ive seen so could be a competitive fight.

    Torres scored a hatrick and Rinaldo chipped his finger nail and could be out of the Euro's.

    I've got this on but even as a world champion I just don't think that Burns is relevant these days

    Who is on the undercarriage?

    We're starting off with Jon-Lewis Dickinson against McCarthy.

    The one that surprises me is Willie Limond thinking that a victory tonight sets him up for a world title shot against Ricky Burns. If I was thinking of fights that encapsulate why world titles have been diluted, Limond v Burns would rank up there.

    You're damn right it is! I think the mod's here once had a little game of all of us changing our avatars to 1980s computer games, and I'm the only one who never got round to changing it back!

    What do you think of Tommy McCarthy? He really whips in his punches, and I like anyone who's willing to commit to working the body.

    As its not a title fight, I was a little surprised to see the ref let it go on, as JLD seemed to be stumbling backwards a little. Having seen how heavy he went down, I doubt it goes 10.

    Am I right in thinking that Paul Smith is fighting at goodison park tomorrow?
    I thought he had retired, are they just bringing in a bum for him to beat up just so he can say he fought at goodison park?
