Oscar Valdez Vs Scott Quigg
World Boxing Organisation World Featherweight Title


This will be a barn burner from the opening bell. Both fighters going for the knockout early. Both fighters have excellent punching power and are excellent offensive fighters. The fight takes place in the middle of the ring as long as it lasts. Each man trading and landing big shots. By the mid rounds, the fatigue and punishment Quigg has taken are starting to catch up with him and he tries to slow the pace and keep Valdez at a distance using his jab and longer reach. Valdez still has his legs and is able to get on the inside. The slugfest becomes more of a chess match with Quigg trying to box on the outside and ties up Valdez when he gets inside, and Valdez is still trying to press the action. Valdez got the better of the fight early when it was a slugfest, and he is also getting the better of Quigg when he tries to stay on the outside. To start the 10th round Quigg who has landed plenty of clean shots but has lost almost every round has clearly fatigued. Valdez is able to get on the inside and buckle Quigg with a straight right that puts Quigg into the ropes and jumps on him landing power shots with pinpoint accuracy until the ref calls a halt to the bout half way through round 10.

Official Prediction
Oscar Valdez via 10th round TKO


Sergey Lipinets Vs Mikey Garcia
International Boxing Federation World Super Lightweight Title

This fight will be a perfect example of a fighter being too tough for his own good. In Lipinets last outing he outlasted veteran Akihiro Kondo in a competitive and entertaining decision. Newsflash, Akihiro Kondo is not Mikey Garcia, not even close. Lipinets didn’t begin boxing till he was in his 20’s, Mikey was born and bred to do this. That difference will show as every round pretty much looks the same. Mikey Garcia, the clearly more skilled fighter outboxes Lipinets with perfect 1-2 shots, counter right hands and excellent bodywork. He also punishes Lipinets on the inside and beats up the Russian when they exchange in close. Lipinets does have moments here and there landing right hands and counter hooks at times but it is clear round after round he is being outboxed and outclassed. Lipinets hangs tough though and survives all 12 lopsided rounds. Mikey takes a one-sided UD ranging from 120-108 to 118-110

Mikey Garcia via UD
