Predictions in Red


June 5: Shropshire, England

  • Title fight: Daniel Dubois vs. Bogdan Dinu, 12 rounds, for the vacant WBA interim heavyweight title–Dubois, coming off his last loss I feel like Dubois is on a mission to redeem himself. Also, Bogdan lost vs Big Baby Miller and I feel like Dubois is more active and a heavier striker than Big Baby
  • Nathan Heaney vs. Iliyan Markov, 10 rounds, middleweights-
  • Liam Davies vs. Stefan Slavchev, 6 rounds, bantamweights-
  • Daniel Buciuc vs. Naeem Ali, 6 rounds, junior middleweights-

  • George Bance vs. Des Newston, 4 rounds, welterweights
  • Adan Mohamed vs. Luke Fash, 4 rounds, featherweights
  • Caoimhin Agyarko vs. TBA, 6 rounds, middleweights

June 6: Miami (Showtime PPV)

  • Floyd Mayweather vs. Logan Paul, 8 rounds, “special exhibition” – I am not a fan of this fight, OR The ‘celebrity exhibition boxing’ wave that is going on because I do feel like professional boxing is back. Collectively, boxing has some of the most depth of great boxers in a long time. Boxing is at one of it’s peaks and I feel like these kinds of fights take away from that.

June 26: TBA (Showtime PPV)- The best card from start to finish 

  • Title fight: Mario Barrios vs. Gervonta Davis, 12 rounds, for Barrios’ WBA “regular” junior welterweight title- Boy this will be an interesting fight. While Tank is the obvious favorite, Barrios size difference could be a big problem for Tank if he can’t manage to close the distance. I do believe Tank overcomes the size difference for the win
  • Erickson Lubin vs. Jeison Rosario, 12 rounds, WBC junior middleweight title eliminator- Rosario, I do feel Rosario will redeem himself after his last fight 
  • Batyr Akhmedov vs. Algenis Mendez, 12 rounds, junior welterweights-
  • Julian Williams vs. Brian Mendoza, 10 rounds, junior middleweights- This will be one amazing fight to watch but tough fight for both fighters. I feel as if this is a must win for Julian Williams career, I think he understands that and will get the job done.

june 27th: pbc, live on fox:

Title fight: David Morrell Jr vs Mario Cazares, 12 rounds, WBA Super Middleweight Championship – David Morrell stays unbeaten in his title defense, giving Cazares his first loss.


July 3: Carson, California (Showtime)

  • Title fight: Chris Colbert vs. Yuriorkis Gamboa, 12 rounds, for Colbert’s WBA interim junior lightweight titleChris Colbert, I feel as if Gamboa’s days are numbered. Gamboa is a tough fighter and will not be a cake walk but ultimately I think he loses in a stoppage.

July 9: Los Angeles (DAZN)

  • Gilberto Ramirez vs. Sullivan Barrera, 12 rounds, light heavyweights
  • Joseph Diaz Jr. vs. Javier Fortuna, 12 rounds, lightweightsFortuna

July 17: TBA (Showtime)

  • Title fight: Jermell Charlo vs. Brian Castano, 12 rounds, for Charlo’s IBF, WBC and WBA junior middleweight titles and Castano’s WBO junior middleweight title- Jermell Charlo – Jermell Charlo with KO of the Year candidate 

July 17: Germany

  • Tina Rupprecht vs. Katia Gutierrez, 10 rounds, for Rupprecht’ WBC women’s strawweight title

July 24: Las Vegas

  • Title fight: Tyson Fury vs. Deontay Wilder, 12 rounds, for Fury’s WBC heavyweight title- This one is hard for me. With Wilder having a new trainer he has shown actual boxing skills and not just being a slugger. If Wilder changes up his fighting style to what his training has looked like alongside his KO Power then I have a hard time betting against him. Fury is so skilled and agile for a fighter of his size. However I am nervous that he is doubting Wilder’s ability to beat him. By the skin of my teeth I have to go with Deontay Wilder. I feel a loss for Wilder would be more detrimental to his career than if Fury lost. 


August 14: TBA (Showtime)

  • Title fight: John Riel Casimero vs. Guillermo Rigondeaux, 12 rounds, for Casimero’s WBO bantamweight title- John Riel Casimero

August 21: Las Vegas (FOX PPV) (Fight of the year until further notice)

  • Title fight: Errol, Spence Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao, 12 rounds, for Spence’s WBC and IBF welterweight titles- Errol Spence Jr, Boy is this fight huge for the boxing world. We have Manny Pacquiao trying to cement his legacy against arguably the top boxer of today’s boxing generation. Errol Spence Jr has been calling Manny out for some time, so to add a win over Manny Pacquiao to his resume would be amazing. Please disregard Manny Pacquiao’s age, he will be even more prepared than he was for Thurman, however Errol Spence is no Thurman. Coming off a huge win against Danny Garcia, Spence says he currently feels 100% again and did not during Danny Garcia’s fight. I do not seeing 100% Errol Spence losing to Manny Pacquiao.

August 28: TBA (Showtime)

  • David Benavidez vs. Jose Uzcategui, 12 rounds, WBC super middleweight title eliminator- David Benavidez Winner
