Evander Holyfield looks to position himself for a shot at the Heavyweight Championship by taking on former titleholder Michael Dokes. They slug it out from the opening bell, with each man landing some low blows early. Dokes loses his mouthpiece early in the third round but has Holyfield hurt, and there is never a lull in the action to replace it. In the sixth, Steele penalizes Dokes a point for a low blow. A huge left hook from Holyfield early in the seventh knocks Dokes's mouthpiece out and has the former champion in trouble. Dokes shows his heart in dominating the early portions of round eight, but Holyfield rallies down the stretch to blast him with bombs of his own. An uppercut from Holyfield has Dokes wobbling in the tenth. Holyfield sends him staggering into the ropes with a left hook and snaps Dokes's head back with a straight right hand. Steele jumps in to stop the fight just as Dokes turns and collapses onto the second rope, ending a classic heavyweight battle.

No problem, I'm sorry but I doubt I'm going to able to, I will try.

Are you going to watch Andrade against Culcay tomorrow?

Ok you know it I just logged on to tell you let us get a score card for that fight and David Lemiuex vs Curtis Stevens also Yuriorkis Gamboa is fighting Rene Alvarado in the co main event in his first fight for Golden Boy promotions. I just seen we got Lemiuex vs Stevens who you like in that fight to Win ?

I like Lemiuex, I could be wrong, many believe Stevens is going to win, perhaos he did slughtly better against Golovkin, I thought he still lost every round, I don't think Stevens is quite good enough to work around or avoid the power of Lemiuex, and I don't think he van take it for long, I think Lemiuex stops him late, what do you think?

You know David is Beloved but if Curt starts super fast and wins the early rounds he gonna Win if Lemiuex gets his beat Curt gonna get Beat on the outside pieced up. Stevens need his ass beat for saying GGG got no power why was he on the floor making Gas Faces.

I can definitely see that happening too, I know too well I can be wrong, and may well be wrong, I'm 55/45 on Lemiuex knocking him out. So is Stevens winning your final prediction?

Can I please get that score card for Andrade Vs Culcay

I added it for you
