Gassiev vs Dorticos
Should be a great fight this one. Both fighters are unbeaten and both can bang. Dorticos is the better boxer of the two with a longer reach and better footwork. Gassiev is a bit mechanical, but he is the younger man and he can bang. Whatever he has in his porridge, it's made him as strong as an ox. I think that Dorticos will get the better of the early rounds, with his superior technique, and he is a big puncher himself. However, I think that Gassiev will wear him down and stop him somewhere around the eighth round. It's great that it is on terrestrial Telly, as it will almost certainly be a better fight than the one on Sky between the two unbeaten Brits Okolie and Chamberlain, which will be close, but I think Okolie will win.

bantams on now, Espinoza against Aloyan in only his 4th fight and doing OK.
Report Des Pond February 3, 2018 7:41 PM GMT
Brilliant display from Aloyan against a much more experienced opponent.
Report Des Pond February 3, 2018 7:52 PM GMT
split decision for the home fighter. maybe a bit of a stretch, but he did fight really well. Slightly harsh on Espinoza, but I don't grudge Aloyan the win.

Pretty easy fight for Chudinov.

Both decent fighters.

Looks like the cuban can bang and stand up when hit.
Report Des Pond February 3, 2018 10:31 PM GMT
some power in those punches from Gassiev, Dorticos took them well, though. Dorticos still ahead imo.

what you think of final?
this russian looks tough.

Thanks Callisto. I think Usyk will have too much speed, movement and variation of punch for Gassiev, and he is also very tough.
