This is the first leg of the Middleweight Tournament Series to unify the Middleweight division. IBF Champion Bernard Hopkins will rely on his street fighter instincts to wear down the more refined southpaw Keith Holmes. Holmes will try to use his jab to keep the stronger Hopkins at a distance. Look for Holmes to start strong early building up points by out boxing Hopkins. But it won't take long for the veteran Hopkins to take control and begin to wear down Holmes. We see this fight as being a close, but unanimous decision for Hopkins.

BoxingGurus.com Prediction:             Hopkins by decision.
