This week’s panellists had been requested to foretell the end result of Saturday’s light-heavyweight struggle between Dmitry Bivol and Gilberto Ramirez
Leigh Wooden (Featherweight contender)
I count on Dmitry Bivol’s boxing means and expertise might be a bit an excessive amount of for Gilberto Ramirez, who has had his finest wins as a super-middleweight. I feel that we are going to see a large factors win for Bivol.
Dave Allen (Heavyweight contender)
Pretty much as good as I feel Ramirez is, and he is superb, I feel Bivol will win a factors resolution. I don’t see anybody at both 168 (kilos) or 175 beating Bivol on his finest day.
Wayne Alexander (Former European super-welterweight champion)
I count on it to be an excellent struggle and a terrific check for each males, however extra so for Ramirez, who’s stepping up from super-middleweight after holding the WBO title for 3 years there. He’s now boxing perhaps the perfect fighter within the light-heavyweight division; somebody who has held his title for 5 years. Gilberto might make it tough along with his southpaw model and punching energy, however Bivol, who was additionally a world class newbie, would have in all probability confronted this sort of fighter earlier than. Because of this I choose Bivol to win on factors.
John Fewkes (Coach)
I’ll expect fireworks when it warms up. I feel Bivol is simply too intelligent to be drawn straight right into a struggle however an excessive amount of of a fighter to not sooner or later. I’ve seen extra of Bivol than Ramirez to be trustworthy and suppose Bivol, a giant, robust athlete, takes a factors resolution
