All out war will be upon us tomorrow night in Las Vegas.  Showtime will be presenting the “Kahn VS Alexander” card, but thats not all.  HBO is countering with Timothy Bradley VS Diego Chaves, which is another possible fight-of-the-year candidate.  The hard hitting Chaves will try his luck against the hard headed boxer/puncher Timothy “Desert Storm” Bradley.  Here’s the breakdown:

TIMOTHY BRADLEY

  • Record:  31 – 1, 1NC (12 KO’s)
  • Weight Class:  Welterweight (147 lbs)
  • Height:  5′ 6″
  • Reach:  69″
  • Notable Fights:  Manny Pacquiao #1 (Win, SD 12rd, 6/9/12), Ruslan Provodnikov (Win, UD 12rd, 3/16/13), Juan Manuel Marquez (Win, SD 12rd, 10/12/13)

DIEGO GABRIEL CHAVES

  • Record:  23 – 2, (19 KO’s)
  • Weight Class:  Welterweight
  • Height:  5′ 7.5″
  • Reach:  66.5″
  • Notable Fights:  Ismael El Massoudi (Win, KO 2rd, 7/21/12), Keith Thurman (Loss, KO 10rd, 7/27/13), Brandon Rios (Loss, DQ 9rd, 8/2/14)

Chaves is no doubt a heavy hitter, but every time he stepped up in class, he has come out on the short end.  Saturday night will be no different.  Chaves will test Bradley’s chin early on, and this fight will turn into a brawl.  Bradley will weather the storm and go on to win by Unanimous Decision by outboxing and out brawling Chaves.  Timothy Bradley is made of steel.  If Ruslan Provodnikov couldn’t knock him out at this weight, no one can.  Chaves has no chance in this fight unless he can score a knockout or multiple knockdowns which will not happen, and Bradley will leave him in the dust on the scorecards.

Other Fights On The Card:

  • Mauricio Hererra VS Jose Benavidez  —  Junior Welterweight (140 lbs)
  • Andy Lee VS Matt Koborov  —  Middleweight (160 lbs)

  • Jose Benavidez  —  def  —  Mauricio Hererra  —  via  —  TKO Round 5
  • Matt Koborov  —  def  —  Andy Lee  —  via  —  Unanimous Decision
