This week’s panellists have been requested to think about what occurs when Dmitry Bivol and Artur Beterbiev share a hoop
Gary Logan (Coach)
A dream battle: formidable boxer vs. formidable box-puncher. Bivol’s type and head motion causes issues for Beterbiev as he not confronted such a person as expert as Bivol as a professional. The issue for Bivol is that Beterbiev is a greater boxer than given credit score for and hits rattling onerous to go and physique. I can both see Beterbiev getting a late stoppage or Bivol producing a boxing show for the ages. If I’m betting, I’m going Beterbiev.
Chris Billam-Smith (European cruiserweight champion)
One of many fights of our technology. I feel, if pressured to choose, I’d go for Bivol on factors. I feel his footwork and focus hold him out of bother by taking the sting out of Beterbiev’s photographs. Bivol doesn’t give a lot away and he punches too lengthy for Beterbiev to get shut.
Ryan Walsh (British featherweight champion)
Beterbiev is a beast however that is boxing and the higher, extra expert and disciplined fighter is Bivol. My coronary heart says will probably be a Beterbiev KO however my head tells me Bivol will produce a masterful boxing show.
Joe Gallagher (Coach)
Bivol’s rising to the highest on the proper time whereas Beterbiev’s had a little bit of inactivity now with that damage. He’s received to get previous Anthony Yarde first, however, offered he does, that’s a extremely good battle. I really feel it’s a case of 1 fighter being on the way in which up and the opposite on the way in which down. You’ll be able to’t rule out Beterbiev due to his punching capacity however Bivol’s all-round boxing expertise must be sufficient to nick a win.
