Jade Bornea versus Mohammed Obbadi breakdown

This fight is an IBF eliminator for the Super Flyweight world title which Jerwin Ancajas holds. Jade Bornea is 16-0 with 9 knockouts and will take his first step into the world scene after seven years as a pro. Mohammed Obbadi is 22-1 with 13 knockouts and has stepped up to world level once before when he fought Cristofer Rosales, he lost the fight after he retired in the corner at the end of the 7th round.

Jade Bornea is a good fighter who throws quick combinations to the body and head. He works to the body well and has stopped quite a few of his opponents with body shots. Bornea had an excellent amateur career where he claimed wins over the likes of Kosei Tanaka and Murodjon Akhmadaliev, both of whom have gone on to win world titles.

Mohammed Obbadi has good movement and uses his legs a lot instead of taking the center of the ring. He mostly throws one or two punches at a time and doesn’t sit down on them so generates a lot less power than his record suggests.

I think this fight will be very competitive for the majority of the rounds but Bornea’s combination punching and consistent body work will lead him to a twelve round decision win after Obbadi slows down late in the fight. It’ll likely be an 8-4 fight in Bornea’s favour.
