Boxing Predictions for 2012


Recommended Posts

Threw some up for this year and got quite a few of them right;








Haye will not retire before he hits 31, like he's been saying - Right

One of Gamboa or Lopez will lose before they ever face each other in what has been an already drawn-out affair - Right


Mayweather will claim to be retired, but still come out of retirement for someone other than Manny - Right


Haye will take a very lucky decision win over one of the Klitschko's - Wrong (would have been a hell of a lucky decision seeing he never bothered his ass turning up)

Alvarez will win some version of a world title this year (silver, interim, diamond, super, kinder-egg) - Right He won the full WBC title in his first fight of 2011.


Hatton will come out of retirement for a farewell fight - Thankfully Wrong

Cotto will beat Margarito and send him into retirement, fortunately for him, very rich - Right (Retirement part more than likely)


Khan will continue to look good in the ring, but spoil it all with his mouth - Right


David Lemieux will become a world champion - Wrong

Frank Warren will make 3rd and 4th attempts at "super" cards, which are actually p*ss-poor! - Right More pullouts than Ron Jeremy.







So what are your top 10 predictions for 2012?

We'll take a look over them at the end of the year and see how many you can get right! ;)

I'll throw in my predictions for 2012 anyway:


1. Ajose Olusegun will finally end his 10-year wait for a world title shot in 2012, by winning the WBC belt

2. Vitali Klitschko will knock out David Haye

3. Robert Helenius and Tim Bradley will lose their unbeaten records

4. Miguel Cotto will retire on a high after another win

5. Manny Pacquiao will go through 2012 unbeaten

6. Lucian Bute will beat the Super 6 winner

7. Nonito Donaire will only have 1 meaningful fight in 2012, which he will lose

8. Tyson Fury will be knocked out

9. Ricky Burns will continue to defy logic by retaining his world title

10. The myth of Joan Guzman will finally be smashed as he loses to a journeyman
