Blood, Sweat and Tears: Beterbiev vs Smith Jr | Part 2

As @Mikey1903 hast already posted the first part, I post the second:




Did I mention that I just love all this fight-camp- or beyond-the-ring-dokus?

One of the only things boxing still is ahead of UFC/MMA.
If UFC-Fightpass starts offering fight-camp- or beyond-the-ring-dokus in the e.g. Top-Rank-quality, oh boy, boxing business' problems will intensify deeply.

Nova at those odds is definitely a bet

Robeisy has the best win of the two in Orlando Gonzalez. But I feel like Nova is really live at those odds + more experience.

Union Joe

Predictions: 8 of 8 Winners, 4 Perfect, 555 Points   |   1st Place

The Union guys must be throwing a lot of cash on Joe Smith because his price has shrunk from +600 to +450 in the last day.

I actually see a scenario where Joe knocks out Beterbiev early, just look up the Beterbiev Callum Johnson fight and that's what I think could happen.
Emphasis on the COULD tho! I ultimately think Beterbiev wins but I definitely think Smith will come to fight and put it all on the line.
Maybe worth a little cheeky 5er on Smith by KO at +900

Predictions: 8 of 8 Winners, 3 Perfect, 505 Points   |   Tied for 9th with 4 others

Beterbiev vs. Smith Jr.
Artur Beterbiev, TKO, R8
Beterbiev is a monster when he unified the WBC/IBF championships took the undefeated Gvozdyk (trained by Anatoly Lomachenko and Oleksander Usyk's sparring partner) and even ended his career (Gvozdyk practically put Adonis Stevenson in a coma when he won the WBC Belt). Smith Jr. has heart and has done great things in the past like when he knocked out Andrzej Fonfara, but I honestly think Beterbiev will win by KO.

Nova vs. Ramirez
Robeisy Ramirez, DEC
Ramirez is an Olympic gold medalist, more than 100 wins in the amateurs, he had a bad professional debut (perhaps the stage fright affected him) but then he managed to overcome widely in the rematch. Nova has KO power, but I believe that Ramirez, who is a southpaw, will impose his Cuban school boxing. Robeisy beat Shakur Stevenson in the Olympics final (By Split Decision) and Top Rank was interested in a potential pro box rematch. The truth is I don't have much faith in Nova's chances, last week I practically saw the massacre of the current future of Puerto Rican boxing: Caraballo chinned, Vargas Jr. suffered a terrible defeat (where there was a terrible referee job) and Berlanga proved to be no more than an average boxer in his weight class. Nova may be able to step up (if he beats Ramirez), but I think Ramirez will win.

Beterbiev vs. Smith Jr.
Artur Beterbiev, TKO, R6
Boxing (or any other sport) is not a game of math, but if Smith didn't beat Vlasov -imo, at least- I don't think he has more than a slight puncher's chance at beating Beterbiev, who's better, stronger and more skilled. Think Beterbiev will progressively find more holes in his defence and finish him off with a great KO like he did against Gvozdyk.

Nova vs. Ramirez
Robeisy Ramirez, DEC
Nova is a tough test but Robeisy is better and he tends to have some lapses in his guard when throwing or waiting for openings, so I'm going with the Cuban.

Casual New Predictions

Predictions: 7 of 7 Winners, 2 Perfect, 400 Points   |   137th Place

Isley vs. Stubbs
I crave Troy Isley at -4000. He has a ruthless fallaway moonsault slam. Isley ought to tackle the victory.

Smith vs. Tucker
I favor Jahi Tucker at -2000. He has a priceless demeanor. Tucker shall violate the canvas. Die daumen drücken!

Carrington vs. Leyva
I go with Bruce Carrington at -3333. He has a maniacal oshi-dashi and an advanced double leg. Carrington will flaunt the ring announcer.

Brown vs. McMahon
I am all over Jahyae Brown at -2500. He has a homemade hammerfist. Brown ought to block the dissentient. Guaranteed!

Toussaint vs. Byfield
I select Wendy Toussaint at -900. He has an eccentric sleeper slam. Toussaint is about to ignite the dark horse.

Nova vs. Ramirez
I want Robeisy Ramirez at -500. He has an oppulent counter left. Ramirez shall tweak the foe. Winter is coming!
