Cody Crowley versus Josh Torres breakdown.

This should be a good showcase fight for Cody Crowley who is a decent prospect in the Welterweight division and holds a record of 17-0. Josh Torres is 22-6-2 and is a domestic level fighter in the USA. The fight is scheduled to be 10 rounds and is on the undercard of Yordenis Ugas versus Abel Ramos.

Cody Crowley is relatively tall for a welterweight and is a southpaw. He throws both left and right hooks and will often throw one then the other immediately afterwards with both being quite wide punches. He doesn’t use his jab that often which is a shame as with his height he could use it effectively. His defence is decent and mostly consists of him taking a step back and then countering. He has respectable power but nothing on the level of the top guys. He seems to get stronger as the fight goes on and also ups the pressure as the fight continues.

Josh Torres throws a lot of jabs and is very active. His defence is decent but Crowley should be able to hit him regularly. His power is probably below average and he mostly stops people with combinations. He’s shorter than Crowley and has a shorter reach so may have to work his way inside to be effective.

I think Cody Crowley will win by decision because being a tall southpaw should frustrate Josh Torres who won’t be able to land with most of his punches.
