1. Bob "The Freckled Wonder" from Helston, UK is 68-8-4 and will be fighting James "Buster" Douglas at 38-6-1. Douglas hails from Columbus, Ohio. We all know what happened that fateful night in Tokyo, Japan for Buster Douglas. Fitzsimmons did beat James Corbett for the title. 65% of the experts believe that Buster will advance tot he 2nd round of the tourney.

2. Kid McCoy (55-6-9) from Moscow, Indiana vs. Al Kauffman at 21-7 from San Francisco, CA. Not sure how Kauffman got the invitation from the selection panel. Kid McCoy has a very colorful bio. Look him up. Kid is a 65% pick to advance.

3. Tommy "The Little Giant of Hanover" Burns (39-5-Cool is from Hanover, Ontario and takes on Peter "The Irish Giant" Maher of Gunmode, Ireland. Maher was certainly a busy fighter at 142-28-6. His best win was beating Joe Choynski. Burns is the only Canadian born Heavyweight Champ according to Wikipedia. Burns is a 96% favorite to reach the round of 32.

4. Larry "The Easton Assassin" Holmes from Easton, PA is 69-6 and taking on Luis Firpo from Buenos Aires, Argentina. Firpo is 31-4. If you don't know about his famous bout with Jack Dempsey....check it out......WOW!! Didn't realize--or had forgotten--that Holmes was actually born in Georgia. Holmes was challenging Marciano's 49-0 mark with an unbeaten record of 48-0 until back to back losses to Michael Spinks and then a 3rd straight loss at the hands of Mike Tyson. Holmes is 3rd all time in successful title defenses at 20. He only trails Joe Louis and Wladimir Klitschko in this category. 96% look for Holmes to advance.

*My thoughts and hopes for this regional*
1. The Boston Regional appears to have the most "close" fights in the preliminary odds. With Marciano, Foreman, Holmes, Holyfield and Jersey Joe Walcott, there is certainly no shortage of star power here.

2. Can Buster Douglas catch "lightning...twice?"

3. Enough of the hype-----the tournament kicks off tomorrow, Friday, April 7th!!!

Louisville Regional Semifinals
Ali is huge (96%) pick to top Sharkey, biggest mismatch according to pt values
Jeannette is favored by 3 of 5 to keep a dream Tyson vs. Ali match from happening

Los Angeles Regional Semifinals
Frazier is a 96% pick to end Wills run
Jack Johnson is favored by 86% to stop Lennox bid for an elite 8 spot

St. Louis Regional Semifinals
Louis and Dempsey are both 86% picks to top Charles and McVey and face each other for the regional final.

Boston Regional Semifinals
Marciano is a 72% favorite over Holyfield
Holmes is a 96% pick to take out Fitzsimmons.

*The 4, 7, and 8 overall seeds have been eliminated. Jeannette as the 57th seed is the lowest ranked entrant still alive. His ring rating suggests he should have been a top 32 seed at the least if not a top 20. Can Tyson stop his run?

Ali is 96% pick to end Jeannette's run. This represents biggest mismatch of the Elite 8

Frazier is a 72% pick to beat Lennox Lewis and have an epic 4th showdown with Ali in the Fistic Final Four

Louis is picked by 8 of 10 experts to stop Dempsey and advance to final 4.

Holmes is favored by 9 of 10 to stop Real Deal Holyfield's quest. Can the 19th seeded Holyfield pull one more great victory out to add to his legacy?

Man! It's tempting to fight these final 4 bouts with Main Event, but I will stay true to the tournament format and keep it quick....ULTRA QUICK.

Ali is a 96% pick to go on to finals and in the process end any arguments from the Frazier camp tthat may still claim to be Ali's equal.

The Holmes vs. Dempsey is going to be a virtual deadlick as 51% pick Holmes to advance to fight Ali....again....and this time at Ali's best.

Ali was the overall 1 seed. Frazier was the 13th. Dempsey, the 10th. Holmes, the 6th.
