This weekend's fights

For you boxing fans, Saturday night will provide some interesting bouts on HBO. Juan Diaz takes on Paul Malignaggi in a junior welterweight bout. Both guys are trying to recover from losses, Diaz to Juan Manuel Marquez and Malignaggi to Ricky Hatton.

Diaz is the harder puncher and just better overall fighter. It's an intriguing fight for TV and should be decent. Diaz has proven more in his career in key fights and should have something left.

Also, on the card is a 12-round title fight between Robert Guerrero and Malcolm Klassen for the IBF super featherweight title.

What are your thoughts on the Diaz/Malignaggi battle?
