Esquiva Falcao versus Artur Akavov breakdown

I really like this fight and its an excellent test for Falcao who has been moving very slowly throughout his career.

Falcao has some power and clearly a little technical ability though I find it suspicious that hes been moved so slowly and have a feeling hes not all that good. I also didn’t think he looked in the best shape at the weigh in. He hasn’t faced good competition at all and isn’t used to fighting a decent southpaw like himself.

Artur Akavov is decent technically and is a very awkward fighter who has been competitive with both Demetrius Andrade and Billy Joe Saunders. While he was stopped in the Andrade fight it was a terrible stoppage and I think he’ll be looking to show hes not someone to be used as a stepping stone in this fight. Both of the world champions he fought were southpaws and he fared well so he’s used to southpaw versus southpaw action.

I think Artur Akavov will win a decision due to having more experience in southpaw versus southpaw fights and also having fought the better competition. I also thought he looked good at the weigh in and will know this is his last big chance most likely.
