Umar Salamov versus Sergei Ekimov breakdown

This is a decent tune up fight for Salamov who hasn’t fought for a while and recently caught Covid. Salamov is a world level contender in the Light Heavyweight division and if not for getting Covid would have been fighting in a world title eliminator. Sergei Ekimov compiled a nice record of 18-0 before losing his last two fights. Neither of them are terrible losses as the opponents were good but I think hes gone into a sort of Journeyman mode recently as I watched him go ten rounds in an exhibition with Maxim Vlasov where he just tried to survive.

Sergei Ekimov

I think Umar Salamov will win by decision due to being technically better and also having more ambition at this stage of his career.
