Keyshawn Davis versus Jose Zaragoza breakdown

Keyshawn Davis is a great prospect and seems like a lock in for being a future world champion. I don’t see him having much trouble in this fight but it’ll be interesting to see how fast Top Rank moves him as he has the potential to become a world champion very quickly. I think KeyshawnContinue reading “Keyshawn Davis versus Jose Zaragoza breakdown”

Nonito Donaire versus Reymart Gaballo breakdown

This is a solid fight at Bantamweight between WBC world champion Donaire and top 20 contender Gaballo. I personally thought Gaballo lost his last fairly clearly and was lucky to get the decision but he should still be a capable opponent in this fight. Nonito Donaire is a future hall of famer and at bantamweightContinue reading “Nonito Donaire versus Reymart Gaballo breakdown”

Marlon Tapales versus Hiroaki Teshigawara breakdown

This is a good fight between two top 25 super bantamweights who are at different stages of their career’s. Tapales had success at bantamweight before missing weight and moving up to 122. He’s not looked quite as good at super bantamweight and was stopped by Ryosuke Iwasa a few years ago. Teshigawara has been onContinue reading “Marlon Tapales versus Hiroaki Teshigawara breakdown”

Brandun Lee versus Juan Heraldez breakdown

This should on paper be a decent test for Lee but I personally think it’s one he’ll deal with fairly easily. Heraldez missed weight and doesn’t have anything to bother Lee who has shown his power carries up to this level before. Heraldez has had a hard couple years in his career and I don’tContinue reading “Brandun Lee versus Juan Heraldez breakdown”

Gurgen Hovhannisyan versus Nick Jones breakdown

This is a decent second fight for Hovhannisyan who had a respectable amateur career before going pro. He’s a massive heavyweight with decent skills who walks his opponents down and wears them out. Nick Jones has been stopped by other heavyweight prospects and I expect the same here as he’s only a small heavyweight andContinue reading “Gurgen Hovhannisyan versus Nick Jones breakdown”

Conor Benn versus Chris Algieri breakdown

This should be a decent test for Benn who is making good progress as a prospect in the welterweight division. Chris Algieri is a former world champion but is at the end of the his career. He should still have enough left to test Benn especially early on. Benn has improved massively throughout his careerContinue reading “Conor Benn versus Chris Algieri breakdown”

Dmitry Bivol versus Umar Salamov breakdown

This is a good fight in the Light Heavyweight division between two top 15 fighters. Dmitry Bivol is the WBA Light Heavyweight world champion and is defending his title versus Salamov who is 26-1 and on a good run of form. Salamov was supposed to take part in a tournament to fight for the WBOContinue reading “Dmitry Bivol versus Umar Salamov breakdown”

Sultan Zaurbek versus Ryan Wheeler breakdown

Zaurbek is starting to come towards his prime as a fighter and has looked excellent in his recent fights. Ryan Wheeler doesn’t seem to have any power to speak of and lost by stoppage in one of only 3 fights against competition with winning records. One of those other fights was a draw on hisContinue reading “Sultan Zaurbek versus Ryan Wheeler breakdown”

Kamshybek Kunkabayev versus Steven Ward breakdown

Returning from the Olympics with a Bronze medal, Kunkabayev looks to continue his run to the top of the Cruiserweight division in quick fashion starting with a fight against Belfast’s Steven Ward. The fighter from Kazakhstan is currently 3-0 with 3 knockouts as a pro and has looked impressive in all his fights so far.Continue reading “Kamshybek Kunkabayev versus Steven Ward breakdown”
