6-ft.-7 Kevin Price is highly touted, but old-ish at 34. (Tor) Hamer is a late starter, but should learn from this (six-round split decision loss on Khan-Malignaggi undercard in NYC). Good fight for an undercard. I gotta get this. BTW, I’m in Bucharest, Romania doing a gig with AC/DC- open…

Round 1: Minto plods forward straight to the champion, minus a jab, looking for openings. Huck looks to be playing the part of counter-puncher. Huck’s hands are obviously faster.

What will be the deciding factor in the upcoming Vitali Klitschko— Cristobal Arreola bout? Klitschko’s advanced age and supposed slower reflexes, or Arreola’s weight issues and lack of top-10 experience? That’s easy; Arreola’s glaring deficiencies.
