K Vs Solis, Bute Vs Magee

Having seen the weigh in pics for the heavyweight fight, Vitali looks in fantastic shape, Solis, while at a career low has too much superfluous weight around the middle. Can't see anything other than text book for Vitali. Works the jab early on, with a mid to late stoppage.
I know nothing about Magee, though Bute is a quality operator, my assumption was that the Irish lad is a little out of his depth?
Thoughts and opinions on tomorrow nights boxing please!

    Vitali for a knock out victory
    Bute win, magee is an average fighter but he's 35/36 years old and cant see him winning, hope he does well though.  (Dont want to see him get brutally k,o'd cause hes a nice chap)

    Solis looked terrible at the weigh in. I think he will get stopped and probably not look great while hes in there. Terrible condition and too small.
    Bute is a quality fighter and its a shame the super 6 did not have him in it. Bute point win would be my pick but it may be a tougher fight then the wide odds suggest. Magee is getting a final shot at the big time.

    I actualy thought Solis might have a chance if he came in at a decent weight, that being something south of 225lbs... Fair enough 247 is a low weight for him, but for someone whose only just over 6ft and fought at 200lbs as an amateur he clearly hasn't gone into this fight having trained as hard as he probably should done. He seemed pretty disinterested at the press conference and weigh in and I think he's just there for the pay day. Vitali's power and output isn't what it was but I'm not sure Solis wants it enough to put up a strong enough showing to last the distance, can't see another Shannon Briggs style beat down being allowed either so propably a Vitali TKO but he may have to go the long route again.
    Bute is overrated but has way too much for Magee, think he wins by stopagge.
    You haven't mentioned what will probably be the best fight of tonight - Rigondeaux v Casey - http://www.rte.ie/live/ you can watch it here at 10pm, if Casey can survive the early rounds he might be able to give Rigondeaux some problems but I don't think he has enough to win.
