John Riel Casimero versus Guillermo Rigondeaux breakdown

This is an excellent match up between two of the best bantamweights on the planet. Casimero has been on a good run since moving up to Bantamweight and has showed surprising power at the weight. Rigondeaux is one of the best pure boxers thats currently active in the sport but hasn’t fought for over a year. He’s also quite old now, his reaction speeds and everything else has clearly slowed down since his prime in my opinion.

Guillermo Rigondeaux

Casimero will be coming forward in this fight trying to Blizt Rigondeaux, while the Cuban will be doing what he does best by fighting on the back foot and timing Casimero. I don’t think this is a good stylistic match up for Casimero, we’ve seen him get out boxed by fighters that clearly aren’t on the level of Rigondeaux. I think unless Rigondeaux has become completely washed up, he should win this fight on points after twelve rounds due to being the better boxer.
