This is a decent fight but also one that could have just been scrapped after it fell apart three or four times. Francesco Patera has been on a solid run since upsetting Lewis Ritson in his hometown of Newcastle a few years ago. Boschiero has been a pro for 17 years and at the age of 40 is looking to make one last run at a title. He’s won three in a row since losing a split decision to Martin Ward. I thought he lost his last fight against the hard punching Samuel Gonzalez who showed he was the much bigger and stronger man on the night.
Patera is a boxer in style and is unlikely to stop his opponents. He’ll instead out-box them and if a stoppage comes then it’s down to an accumulation of punches.
Devis Boschiero comes forward and throws a lot of combinations but isn’t quite as technical as Patera in my opinion. He’s getting old now and has clearly slowed down.
I think Francesco Patera will box to a fairly one sided decision victory due to being both the bigger and more skillful fighter. Boschiero has a lot of experience but it won’t be enough to deal with a solid European level operator in Patera.
