Oscar Rivas versus Ryan Rozicki breakdown

This is a good fight though unfortunately one that has an unneeded title attached to it. This fight will crown the first WBC Bridger weight world champion, an unneeded division recently made up by the WBC. Mauricio Sulaiman who is currently the head of the WBC decided that small heavyweights had no chance against biggerContinue reading “Oscar Rivas versus Ryan Rozicki breakdown”

Andy Hiraoka versus Jin Sasaki breakdown

This is an excellent fight between two young Japanese Super Lightweights. Both are big punchers and no matter the outcome of this bout will likely have good careers. Hiraoka is a bit more seasoned and technically a little better in my opinion but does give up the raw power advantage. Jin Sasaki doesn’t have muchContinue reading “Andy Hiraoka versus Jin Sasaki breakdown”

Emanuel Navarrete beats Joet Gonzalez in brutal battle

Emanuel Navarrete successfully made the second defence of his WBO featherweight world title by beating Joet Gonzalez on points after a hard fight. The judges gave in cards of 118-110, 116-112 and 116-112, I thought these cards fairly represented the fight. Navarrete and Gonzalez got off to a fast start and kept that pace upContinue reading “Emanuel Navarrete beats Joet Gonzalez in brutal battle”

Elwin Soto versus Jonathan Gonzalez breakdown

This should be an interesting fight as it’s a good class of styles between two quality fighters in the light flyweight division. Soto looks to make another defence of his WBO world title while Gonzalez is trying to claim his first world title after falling short in his other attempt. Soto is a puncher whoContinue reading “Elwin Soto versus Jonathan Gonzalez breakdown”

Mikey Garcia versus Sandor Martin breakdown

This isn’t a great fight but it makes sense as Garcia has been out the ring for a long time and Martin is a fighter who needed a big opportunity. Garcia is one of the best fighters in the sport but has been inactive in recent years. He has a great blend of power andContinue reading “Mikey Garcia versus Sandor Martin breakdown”

Giovani Santillan versus Angel Ruiz breakdown

This is a great fight between two rising fighters in the welterweight division. Santillan is 27-0 but has only reached fringe world level in his last few fights. I thought he lost to Antonio DeMarco more than a year ago but has bounced back with an eight round win recently. Angel Ruiz rebounded back fromContinue reading “Giovani Santillan versus Angel Ruiz breakdown”

Emanuel Navarrete versus Joet Gonzalez breakdown

This is Navarrete’s second defence of his WBO featherweight world title after winning the title at the end of 2020. He made his first defence versus Christopher Diaz and won in an entertaining fight that ended in the 12th round when Navarrete stopped Diaz. Joet Gonzalez lost a wide decision to Shakur Stevenson in hisContinue reading “Emanuel Navarrete versus Joet Gonzalez breakdown”

Lester Martinez versus Raiko Santana breakdown

This should be a decent fight between two talented fighters near the start of their careers. Martinez was a good amateur who’s made a perfect start to his pro career but hasn’t faced a strong level of opposition yet. Santana had an amateur background himself back in Cuba but not on the level of Martinez.Continue reading “Lester Martinez versus Raiko Santana breakdown”

Luis Torres versus Jose Guevara Palos breakdown

Luis Torres is an exciting lightweight prospect from Mexico. He’s only 19 but is already 12-0 with 8 knockouts. Jose Guevara Palos is a late replacement but is much tougher than his 6-5-1 record suggests. I think Luis Torres is the bigger puncher and has also had more time to train for this fight whileContinue reading “Luis Torres versus Jose Guevara Palos breakdown”

Efe Ajagba versus Frank Sanchez breakdown

This is an excellent fight and a very intriguing fight. Efe Ajagba is a massive puncher and a 2016 Olympian while Frank Sanchez was a good Cuban amateur and has good technical skills. Ajagba can sometimes be accused of shuffling around the ring and using the same two or three punches without much of aContinue reading “Efe Ajagba versus Frank Sanchez breakdown”
