    The highly anticipated Mayweather vs. McGregor fight now has an impressive undercard to go with it. It was announced that the following matchups will take place before the main event:

    Gervonta Davis (18-0, 17 KOs) vs. Francisco Fonseca (19-0, 13 KOs): For the Davis' IBF Junior Lightweight (130 lbs) Title.

    I am going to agree with the masses in that Fonseca is going to be steamrolled by Davis. He really hasn't ever fought someone with the type of skill he is about to be presented with. His record is primarily built on sub- 500 ranked fighters.

    Nathan Cleverly (30-3, 16 KOs) vs. Badou Jack (21-1-2, 12 KOs): For the Cleverly's WBA Regular Light Heavyweight (175 lbs) Title.

    This is the type of match I like to see. It could go either way with these two. Jack is moving up a weight class for this fight, and Cleverly is the WBA's secondary title holder. Fighting styles and skill level are too similar for me to bet comfortably.

    Andrew Tabiti (14-0, 12 KOs) vs. Steve Cunningham (29-8-1, 13 KOs): 10 rounds, Cruiserweights (200 lbs)

    I am going to give this win to Cunningham. He is much more experienced and a better tuned fighter than Tabiti. Experience is everything when it comes to big fights.

    In all honesty, I expect any of these fights to be much more exciting the the main. Even though I think McG. vs. May is going to be much better than most, I just don't see the same drive with the superstars that I do with the undercards.

    Yeah you're probably right about that. Though Conor is no Pacquaio; I'm sure it will be at least more exciting than that one.
