Great Fight!

Predictions: 6 of 8 Winners, 1 Perfect, 395 Points   |   79th Place

What a fight this is, hopefully it all comes together. Much like Taylor Serrano (also on 30th April) it appears all but done.
Shakur looked great vs Herring. Valdez didn't look great in his last fight but the fight prior he absolutely destroyed the no 1 130lbs and 1 of the scariest guys in boxing Berchelt.  So this is a really good fight

It's not gonna be an easy fight at all. Valdez didn't look too great against conceicao but he got with a lot of good shots. Valdez will give shakur his toughest fight yet. I got Shakur by a very close win.

Valdez got schooled by Conceicao, but kept his "0" for this fight. Valdez is tough so i think he lasts and Stevenson takes his time.

Valdez vs. Stevenson
Shakur Stevenson, DEC
I tried to be serious with the pick of this fight, but after seeing how Oscar Valdez (after giving positive in a VADA test) in his last fight he was beaten and mocked by the Brazilian Robson Conceiçao (if his name had been Robson Mayweather or if it had been a U.S. Boxer fighting in Arizona, 100% sure the scorecard would have been 118-110 for the 3 judges) and how Shakur Stevenson (after playing rude throughout the fight weak and saying things like he was going to brutally knock out Hearring or put his coach out of business) put up an unentertaining fight and couldn't throw Hearring to the canvas despite throwing like 40 unanswered punches. I'm sure this fight will be won by Shakur via cure for insomnia.

Walsh vs. Ibarra
Nico Ali Walsh, DEC
100% agree with Mikey that the idea of ​​Ali's grandson as a future star is something that Top Ranks is trying to sell us in every possible way. But for Ali Walsh to go 4-0 against boxers who are bad but have decent padded records is not unreasonable, unless you are a real star from the start (Olympic champion type or excellent amateur prospects). In general, novice boxers face boxers with a negative record in their first fights. Regarding the pick: I believe that Ali Walsh will have a better performance than in his last 2 fights, achieving a surprising knockout without being overtaken at times by his rivals. Continuing with the line of the first argument: At the moment I do not see a favorable scenario for when fighters like Campbell Hatton or Nico Ali Walsh when they fight for an international title of some boxing organization (because of the level of the hypothetical rival), but well the same It was said of Shane Mosley Jr. and the reality is that Sugar Jr. raised his level immensely since the beginning of 2020 (even getting a recent victory against former world title challenger like Gabriel Rosado).

Right after writing my picks, you have restored my faith in the main event. I think that the fact that he looked so bad in his last fight, had taken away that image of Valdez in his fights against Berchelt, Velez and Marriaga where in the last 2 (Berchelt and Velez) he showed a great combination of KO power and great technical level. In my opinion Shakur is the favorite and is more likely to win the fight, but it is incredible how in one week Stevenson went from -400 to -1100, Valdez is champion because he went up in category and knocked out a Berchelt who was favorite 3 to 1 and the regret that he doesn't have any remote chance is really far-fetched. Now I have the expectation that this fight could be a war (although I still have part of the feeling that this fight is going to be jab jab, one-two, and move by stevenson and Valdez pressing to connect practically nothing), but the truth now I hope it will be a great fight and that both give a better show than in their last fight.

I continue with the idea that Stevenson will make a technical display, but now I also think that Valdez will try to make something of it so that there is really a fight.

When I saw Valdez's fight against Velez I had no doubts what he could do against Berchelt, but after his affair with WADA and the subsequent performance against Robson I was really disappointed (I never followed Valdez's career very closely, but over time of the pandemic if I was able to see his career more thoroughly and I became a fan, especially with his evolution at a technical level).

Regarding Shakur, his performance against Diaz and Caraballo were very good and especially I had always remembered that Stevenson focused more on the fight and avoided controversies, but against Hearring (with whom he had trained together in the past) he had an attitude that maybe it would have made sense if he had knocked out in the first few rounds, but neither the fight nor the TKO was spectacular enough to boast so much.

And that as you say Valdez has really impressive power fists, Stevenson has a great level of technical boxing, but Valdez has great KO power and knows how to fight like he did against Marriaga. The truth is that now I expect a great fight from both of them.

Zen New Predictions

Predictions: 4 of 4 Winners, 1 Perfect, 225 Points   |   Tied for 134th

Muratalla vs. Hill
I prefer Raymond Muratalla at -900. He has a brilliant side kick to the throat. Muratalla is about to vaccinate the humiliating defeat.

Cortes vs. Del Bosque
I am going with Andres Cortes at -5000. He has a creative ground and pound. Cortes should shatter the underdog.

Walsh vs. Ibarra
I elect Nico Ali Walsh at -2000. He has a distinctive full nelson. Walsh ought to rattle the dissentient. Cash me outside!

Valdez vs. Stevenson
I believe in Shakur Stevenson at -800. He has a decent dim mak. Stevenson should limit the natural order.
