THE PRE­DIC­TIONS

Boxing News - - Undercard & Predictions -

JOSHUA-POVETKIN

POVETKIN’S pedi­gree and in­side-work make him a threat, but Joshua’s youth, size and power will be un­scal­able ob­sta­cles for the age­ing Rus­sian. Joshua by mid-to-late-rounds stop­page.

CAMP­BELL-MENDY

A MORE sea­soned and as­tute fighter than when they last met, Camp­bell can show­case his im­prove­ments by in­tel­li­gently box­ing his way to a de­served points win, though he’ll be made to work for it.

ASKIN-OKOLIE

FAST-RIS­ING Okolie is the favourite, but it’s no fore­gone con­clu­sion, as the ex­pe­ri­enced Askin is on a good run of form. Nev­er­the­less, with his ath­leti­cism and long reach, Okolie should earn the de­ci­sion.

KUZMIN-PRICE

STILL having yet to prove him­self as a pro, Kuzmin will need to be wary of Price’s power, but can take ad­van­tage of the gi­ant Liver­pudlian’s vul­ner­a­bil­i­ties with a knock­out vic­tory around the halfway point.
