Anthony Fowler will take on late replacement Rico Mueller after the veteran Roberto Garcia pulled out of the fight for currently undisclosed reasons. Anthony Fowler has been steadily rebuilding himself after taking his first loss to Scott Fitzgerald with his most notable win being over Jorge Fortea who once took part in a final eliminator for the IBF Super welterweight world title. Rico Mueller is just below European level at Super Lightweight and Welterweight, however he is moving up to super welterweight for this fight. He’s lost his most significant fights and recently lost a fight to journeyman Rafal Jackiewicz, soon after his loss was overturned as five new judges re-scored it afterwords with all five turning in scores in favour of Mueller.
Anthony Fowler has a serviceable jab and is a power puncher with decent timing. I don’t think the undersized Rico Mueller will be able to keep Fowler off him for very long which will result in Fowler winning by knockout within three or four rounds. Mueller taking this fight on short notice also isn’t a good sign for his chances in this fight.
