This is a tune up bout for Cieslak who recently lost in a world title fight to Ilunga Junior Makabu in The Congo. He performed well in that fight and showed he was world class even in a loss. Taylor Mabika is 41 and in recent years has been traveling around Europe and losing on points.
Cieslak is good technically and has some good power which has proven itself on the world stage. He’s also got a very good chin and stamina to boot.
Taylor Mabika is a solid fighter but also one coming to the end of his career. He’s very tough and durable so I expect this fight to go the distance.
I expect Michal Cieslak to win on points and potentially go on to fight Lawrence Okolie for the vacant WBO Cruiserweight world title next week.
