Kinda hard to get excited about this fight, to be perfectly honest. Mora doesn't deserve a title shot, but there literally is no one else at the wasteland known as the super welterweight division for Forrest to fight. Thank God that young guns at 154 like James Kirkland, Alfredo Angulo, Vanes Martirosyan, Joel Julio, and Julio Cesar Chavez, Jr. are waiting in the wings to lead the division, plus a guy like Williams who'll probably move up sooner than later to a more natural division for him. Matter of fact, I could totally see Williams (should he win) moving up to face the Forrest/Mora winner, especially if its Forrest.
Anyway, I see Forrest smacking Mora around for a workmanlike 12 round decision, while Williams gets his W and his title back in a 12 round decision. Considering Pavlik and Ponce are fighting that same night on HBO, I think I know what I'm gonna be watching come June 7th.
