Champion97's picture

Prediction,

Dmitry Bivol, in my opinion, is the best at 175, I think he is already a top 20 fighter, he was a great amateur, record of 268-15, competed in a lot of tournaments and did very well, a couple of world tournaments, won a lot of gold medals at Russian national championship tournaments and that sort of thing. Bivol has adpated to the pro game brilliantly so far, he is only 13-0, been a pro for under 4 years, but he seems to have learned very quickly, he had 4 low key fights, won an inter-continental title, then won an interim title, beat guys like Valera and Berridge, but he made more of a name for himself when he fought Cedric Agnew, a well known fighter, on the Ward vs Kovalev II undercard, stopped him in 4, he then went to Monte Carlo, knocked Trent Broadhurst spark out in a round, but in his last fight, he proved a lot, really put himself on the map, against Sullivan Barrera, dominated, stopped him, won nearly every round and stopped Barrera in round 12, carrying his power right through to the end, not making many mistakes, and making a real statement. At 27, Bivol is in his prime I think, he will probably improve if anything over the next couple of years, but I think experience wise, although 13 fights isn't a lot, a good amateur can work very hard, be challenged enough but not get rushed, learn in good time, and have maybe even less than 10 fights which are really valuable, decisive experience.

Isaac Chilemba is good, done well in his career, he usually fights hard, he can really show up and look poor, but he can also show up an do brilliantly. Chilemba is coming off a good win over Blake Caparello, although he seems to have been around for a while, he is still 31, so he should have a bit left in the tank, Chilemba. Chilemba was brilliant against Kovalev, most of us expected him get stopped, maybe even in a mismatch that didn't go 5 rounds, but went 12, won a harsh minimum of 2 rounds, more likely 4, and I gave him 5, it was a good fight, and a fight which made hs question either how Chilemba fought a performance like that, or what on earth was wrong with Kovalev that night. Chilemba looked terrible against Oleksandr Gvozdyk, on the undercard of Kovalev vs Ward, and he was out for 16 months after that, so it seemed likely he might be done, but back in March, he came back, beat Caparello, and Caparello is a good fighter, knocked down Andre Dirrell and Sergey Kovalev, beat Trent Broadhurst, Allan Green, Daniel MacKinnon, so that's a very good win for Chilemba, it's a confidence boost, it was 12 rounds so definitely enough to get rid of the ring rust after 16 months out, and proof that Chilemba is still a good fighter who can really fight hard, push the top guys in the division.

Chilemba has a granite chin, soaked up the power of Tony Bellew, Eleider Alvarez, Sergey Kovalev, he has skill, but I don't think he has anywhere near as much skill and ability as Bivol. I think Kovalev hits harder than Bivol, so in terms of simply taking the power, Chilemba should be able to soak up Bivol's punches, definitely early, but Bivol is strong for 12 rounds, he hits hard, he has output, and he sustains it. I think Bivol can outbox Chilemba no problem, Chilemba is awkward, gives you angles, he has a lot of experience, but I think Bivol is easily adaptable enough to way to make this a fairly straight forward fight overall, even if he does have a bad early round or two. If Chilemba fights like he did against Gvozdyk, he's not going 4 rounds I don't think, if he fights like he did against Kovalev, he should be able to make this a good fight.

Let's give Chilemba the benefit of the doubt, expect him to fight like he did against Kovalev. I think the first half of the fight will be interesting, Bivol might struggle to settle down early, have some small problems with the awkwardness of Chilemba, maybe take a few, but even at this point, he will be doing slightly more work. I think by round 6, it will be Bivol who is adapting, being unpredictable, and Chilemba will be running out of ideas. I think after 8 rounds, when it seems a bit one paced, I think Bivol will have been patient, and when a trailing Chilemba takes some real chances, I think he will walk onto some great counter punches, get dropped, hurt, and Bivol will take over, dominate, score a few late knockdowns, I think Chilemba is still resilient enough to just about last the full 12, but Bivol will win big.

I think Bivol wins a UD, maybe 117-108, 118-107, those sort of scores.

Matchroom's picture

Bivol started fast and looked like he was gonna get Chilemba out of there by the 7th, but he slowed down considerably in the middle rounds on. Still a great talent that I think beats both Kovalev and Gvodzyk but both fights might be closer than I originally anticipated.
