This is a good first test for Azhbenov and one he very much could lose. Azhbenov is 10-0 but hasn’t faced anyone particularly good so far in career. Evgeny Smirnov on the other hand has faced a good level of competition and always seems to fight to an even level versus good fighters.
I think this will be a battle of experience versus slightly better skill and without much to split them i’m going to predict this fight to end in a draw. Smirnov has drawn with all three undefeated fighters he’s faced and I see it going the same way here.
