A final major boxing event of this year will take place this Saturday at the Mandalay Bay Events Center in Las Vegas. On tap are two potentially explosive junior welterweight showdowns that will be televised live by HBO World Championship Boxing. In the opening bout rising star from Oxnard, California Victor Ortiz will take on East Coast’s Lamont Peterson in a twelve round battle of skill and will. The winner will earn a potential title shot. In the main event UK superstar and WBA champion Amir Khan will face one of the hardest punchers in boxing today, Argentinean, Marcos Rene Maidana. Here are my reflections on the four musketeers.
