This Saturday marks the debut of “Premier Boxing Champions” on NBC, with a whale of a triple header.  Abner Mares (28-1-1, 15 KO’s) will take on Arturo Santos Reyes (18-4, 5 KO’s) to start us off.  Then in the co-feature, it will be Adrien Broner (29-1, 22 KO’s) against John Molina (27-5, 22 KO’s).  And in our main event, Keith Thurman (24-0, 21 KO’s) will be taking on Robert Guerrero (32-2-1, 1NC, 18KO’s).

Mares VS Reyes:

Abner Mares is coming off of a 5th round TKO victory against Jose Ramirez back in December of 2014.  After going undefeated in his first 27 fights, Mares was shockingly knocked out in the first round by Jhonny Gonzalez, but seems to have gotten it back together since then.  He will take on the relatively unknown Arturo Santos Reyes, in what seems to be a tune up fight, and a third straight win for Mares.

PREDICTION:  Abner Mares   —   def   —   Arturo Santos Reyes   —   via   —   TKO round 4

Broner VS Molina:

After a questionable performance against Paulie Malignaggi, and his stunning one sided loss to Marcos Maidana, Broner too has seemed to get back on track.  After defeating Carlos Molina, Broner had a decisive UD victory against a formidable opponent in Emmanuel Taylor.  His hand speed is unmatched, he just needs to get his head in the game.  John Molina knows what he needs to do.  He’s not going to beat anyone on the scorecards, so he looks to knock them out.  Which by the way, he is more then capable of doing to Broner.  Molina was destroyed by Lucas Matthysse, and then lost to Humberto Soto, so he needs to get back on track, and he will look to do so by knocking Broners’ head off.

PREDICTION:  Adrien Broner   —   def   —   John Molina   —   via   —   Unanimous decision

Thurman VS Guerrero:

Keith Thurman wants a shot at Floyd Mayweather, but who doesn’t these days.  Theres only one way to get it, and that is to make the fans love you so much, that they demand that fight.  Many say that Thurmans’ last fight was disappointing, but was it really?  Leonard Bundu has an iron chin, and Thurman was criticized because he didn’t get the KO.  But he demolished Bundu for 12 rounds.  It wasn’t even close.  Robert Guerrero hasn’t really been as active as people may like, fighting only once in 2013, and once in 2014.  This will be a huge opportunity to get his face back on the map, and maybe get more big fights if he can come out victorious.

PREDICTION:  Keith Thurman   —   def   —   Robert Guerrero   —   via   —   TKO round 10
