Fight Doctor Predictions
Ricky Burns VS Kiryl Relikh – If you haven’t seen Relikh, I encourage you to go check him out, I hadn’t heard of him before the fight but I looked into him. Why am I making a prediction on this one, well because it is going to be a fight! I expect Burns to dominate with his jab and movement in the early rounds before Relikh starts to get to Burns with punishing hooks that hurt Burns in the middle rounds that puts a scare into Burns. Burns will recoup and get back to dominate fashion by the 9th round or so and I see it looking like an 118-110.
Daniel Jacobs vs. Sergio Mora, rematch, 12 rounds, for Jacobs’ WBA “regular” middleweight title- Jacobs is now 29 and ready to emerge as a superstar, as the old saying goes, if you knocked out him the first time, in the rematch you will knock him out again only, this time, quicker, but no one really looks great against Mora, and outside or Vernon Forrest, he also never really wins, expect a 6th or 7th round stoppage as Mora is able to avoid him early on but ultimately Jacobs will pour it on as we reach the mid rounds.
Richard Commey vs. Robert Easter, 12 rounds, for vacant IBF lightweight title- I really like this one and someone’s “O” has got to go. Easter is better known and looking for a break out performance. Commey is good damn good and also undefeated, I expect Commey to give him a ton of trouble with his jab and defense Easter will have moments in a back and forth fight, this will not be the breakthrough performance we were hoping to see out of Easter , but I think he will “earn” a hotly disputed majority decision, hopefully setting up a rematch.
Gennady Golovkin vs. Kell Brook, 12 rounds, for Golovkin’s WBA/WBC/IBF middleweight titles- In order for Golovkin to be P4P and a considered a great fighter he needs to beat the best fighters in his own weight class. Brook is among the very best in his weight class, unfortunately, he isn’t anywhere near GGG’s weight class, GGG will continue his KO streak I say in the 8th round,but this thing where a fighter jumps multiple weight classes has got to stop, it’s not good for anyone. Fight the guys at your own weight class, if weight classes don’t matter go fight Deontay Wilder next, oh is he too big? Exactly?
Carlos Cuadras vs. Roman Gonzalez, 12 rounds, for Cuadras’ WBC junior bantamweight title every time I watch Chocolatito fight it’s the Choclatito show, get your popcorn ready and get ready to witness more greatness, Carlos Cuadras, is an undefeated fighter and that will certainly come to an end probably by late KO call it in the 10th. KO for Chocolatito.
Yoshihiro Kamegai vs. Jesus Soto-Karass, rematch, 10 rounds, junior middleweights- Why I am a breaking down a fight no one cares about and even fewer people will watch, eh, because Soto-Karass always puts on an entertaining fight and the last time these two got it on it was entertaining as not to bore you with details of a fight that is marked on no one’s calendar, Soto-Karass will earn a bloody hard fought UD.
