I've got to give 50 Cent some credit here. He may be new to the boxing promotion game, but he's handling his fighter, Dib, like an experienced promoter.
He's got Dib back on national television, against a hometown fighter who should sell a lot of tickets, but shouldn't seriously threaten Dib's bid to get back on the winning track. It's even an opponent who should allow Dib the opportunity to look very good.
Nothing is sure in a fight, but I see Dib winning this one with ease. The fact that Oliver has been out of action since October 2011 leads me to question his overall desire at this point in his career.
Maybe a chance like this, in front of his family and friends, will light a fire under him. I'm certainly not expecting Oliver to lie down. But boxing is a business, and this fight looks a lot like a payday first and foremost.
There's no question that Dib, coming off the loss of his belt, will be motivated to win. I think he's a better all-around fighter. All three of Oliver's losses came by stoppage, and I don't see this turning out any differently.
Billy Dib by Round 5 TKO.
