As the ever competitive boxing related battle of Man vs. Machine looked to be a nail-biting contest until the twelfth and final round, The Boxing Tribune editor-in-chief Paul Magno has
finally emerged as the front-runner in the close prediction game.
And it looks like Magno will be the leader coming out of the jam-packed November schedule that has gripped our boxing community. With another double header next week, Magno could stretch his lead further, as him and the Machine have gone separate ways on Guzman-Funeka.
Mikkel Kessler vs. Andre Ward: With an impressive performance and head-butting skills that would make Ivan Calderon proud, Olympian Andre Ward proved that he was worthy of a place in the Super 6 Boxing Classic with a comfortable but nervy victory over the one dimensional Mikkel Kessler. His hand speed was too much for Kessler, who couldn’t adapt his game to defeat the American.
Magno: Andre Ward UD 12 Mikkel Kessler
Machine: Mikkel Kessler KO 9 Andre Ward
Result: Andre Ward TD 11 Mikkel Kessler
The next Magno vs. Machine debate will be from Canada, as Librado Andrade aims to get his revenge on IBF Super Middleweight Champion Lucian Bute after a crazy first fight and the underrated Dominican Joan Guzman will fight Ali Funeka for the vacant IBF Lightweight title.
Scores: Magno (5-1, 2 KOs), Machine (4-2, 1 KOs)
