Daniyar Yeleussinov versus Julius Indongo breakdown

This is a good step up fight for Yeleussinov who has moved quite slowly so far in his pro career considering how good of an amateur he was. Julius Indongo is a former unified champion but is 37 now and been knocked out in his last two big fights. To be fair to him those losses were to Terence Crawford and Regis Prograis both of whom are top talents in the sport.

Daniyar Yeleussinov is a great technical boxer and in his recent fights has also been sitting down on his punches more. He doesn’t have massive natural power but he still hurts people because of how accurate he is.

Julius Indongo has a bit of an unorthodox style and is hard to deal with due to him being a tall southpaw. He has good power even if his record doesn’t show it. I think with him being 37 now hes slowed down a bit and for someone that relied on keeping fights at range and boxing thats not a good thing. His defence and chin are also questionable when it gets to the highest level of the sport and while Yeleussinov isn’t at that level right now I think he has the potential to get there.

I think Daniyar Yeleussinov will win by knockout because Indongo is past his best while Yeleussinov is improving and also has a stellar amateur background to back up his youth.
