Here are a few things to watch for on the undercard of the Litzau-Guerrero event scheduled for February 29 in Lemoore, California.
Travis Walker (26-1, 20 kayos) and TJ Wilson (12-1, 8 kayos)square off in a rematch of one of the shortest heavyweight fights in memory: Wilson’s first round TKO of Walker on October 19 took exactly fifteen seconds. Wilson came out aggressive, backed Walker into a corner, and pummeled him. Walker’s hands dropped, his shoulders slumped, and he never threw a punch, so referee Raul Caiz stopped the fight with 2:45 remaining in the first. Afterwards, Walker (predictably) complained angrily that he’d had Wilson right where he wanted him. So now on the chance that the outcome was a fluke, we’ve got a rematch. Look for Wilson to start fast again, and look for Walker to be a little skittish at the start. Likely outcome: Walker wins by KO in the middle to late rounds.
Tomas Barragan (8-2 with 1 kayo) and Saul Lomas (7-0 with 4 kayos) meet with the WBC World Youth super featherweight title at stake. Exactly how youthful the two are is unclear, but featherweights are fun to watch and this one is scheduled for 10 rounds.
Super middleweight knockout artist Frank Mondejar (16-3 with 15 kayos) tests his power against Dave Saunders (9-4 with 2 kayos). Saunders, despite having the best career record of any of Mondejar’s opponents so far, has been knocked out in his last two bouts.
