Wilton Hilario(10,0,1) vs Allen Litzau(13,3)- If these guys each weighed 25 lbs more, this fight would be off the charts. But as is the case in all of boxing, the smaller fighters don’t seem to grab the imagination of the masses. Here is a great example of where the casual fan is missing out. We just got through with a major instate fight between Andy Kolle and Anthony Bonsante. The state was all a buzz in anticipation for the event, as it should have been, and they did not let us down. Well, not only is this fight between Allen Litzau and Wilton Hilario highly important to their boxing futures and status in the state, but they really don’t like each other. It’s no put on. On top of that, a Wilton win could set up an even bigger fight with Jason Litzau. Needless to say, the Wilton/Allen fight is our pick for fight of the night. 4-12-09 Allen Litzau
Matt Vanda(39,9) vs Tocker Pudwill(40,6) – Matt has gone (4,7) in his last 11 fights. But that record is deceiving. He has fought John Duddy, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr two times, Kenny Kost, Anthony Bonsante, and the new king of Minnesota middles Andy Kolle. The above list of opponents over the last few years was the reason MNboxingleague.com listed Vanda as the peoples champ, he is not afraid to fight anyone anywhere. His first fight with Chavez was in Mexico. There is word out that Matt would like to get a rematch with Kolle for the Minnesota middleweight title. First, he needs to take care of business on the 18th against Tocker Pudwill. Tocker has a better record and had a convincing victory over Anthony Bonsante. The Bullet almost shut out Vanda when they fought. I have heard fellas who know a lot more about the game than I say, Tocker will win this fight. For this humble writer, I think Vanda comes through with a big win for his career’s future and his GREAT fans.
