This is looking like the best Saturday for Boxing in a while. You've got two fights - James Toney vs. Sam Peter on Showtime, and then Clinton Woods vs. Glen Johnson for the IBF Light Heavyweight belt in England.

I'd watch Johnson/Woods III if I could. That's going to be a great fight. The first two were close, and Johnson's always exciting to watch. I'm calling Clinton in a close but unanimous decision, who then goes on to fight a bum or two before cashing in with Calzaghe (after Calzaghe ducks him for a while) in a fight that might not even make it on television here, but would be a huge event in England.

As for Toney/Peter, I'm calling James by shutout. 120-108 on all three cards, maybe even MORE if Peter gets a point or two docked for hitting behind the head. Not even close, not even close to close. Toney goes on to beat Maskaev and become undisputed heavyweight champ at the age of 40, fighting 3 or 4 times a year in 2007 and 2008. I'm not kidding.

Toney was flat robbed. I can't imagine Peter won the seven round he would've needed to eke out a win, let alone NINE. James was busting him with clean shots and busted up his face some, and Peter barely put a mark on James and only even stunned him a couple of times. Argh.

(And, I'd been wanting a win by Peter, just because it would've been better for the division for the young guy to get the win. Stupid judges.)

EDIT: I can't believe Johnson couldn't beat Woods.

And your Winner: Kurt Busch. Man he got a hot lady too, much better looking than his brother's old lady. Oh yes he(Kurt) did do the backwards victory lap. Up next the 600.
