This is a mismatch but i’m not mad at the fight as it’s been put together at late notice after Sergey Kovalev failed tests for steroids. He was supposed to be fighting Melikuziev but after failing two tests he was pulled from the fight and his career at an international level is likely over. Morgan Fitch has lost four of his last five and at the age of 37 is entering the last stage of his career.
I expect Bektemir Melikuziev to win by knockout within four or five rounds due to his power and amateur background. While Fitch is 19-4-1 hes 37 and very clearly on the slide as shown by having four losses in his last five fights. Melikuziev is in his prime right now and in my opinion is the best prospect in the Super Middleweight division so shouldn’t have any problems in this fight.
