Prediction,

Good step up for Lee McGregor, he seems like a good prospect, 3-0, only 21, so if he's fighting tough opponents, he's learning in good time.

Mrema is 22-2, good record, earlier this year, in the fight before his last, he was dropped, and beaten by a landslide UD, against unbeaten David Agadzhanyan, he was stopped in one round last year, against current Oriental champion, Jeo Santisima, but apart from that, Mrema has won everything. Mrema has fought for a Youth world title (against Agadzhanyan), and a Tanzanian title, which he won, but most of his fights have been non-title fights.

Both these guys are very young fighters, 21 and 23, but to look at their records, you wouldn't think so, because McGregor has had 3 fights, not behind schedule because he is only 21, but Mrema has had 24 fights, which is a lot. Mrema has much, much more professional experience than McGregor. Mrema has 112 rounds behind him, McGregor, only 5.

It doesn't seem like either of these guys had great amateur careers. Mrema is the more tested fighter, McGregor has had the brilliant start to his career, he's the fighter who's training in the company of a top trainer and top fighters, and it seems likely he has more potential than Mrema, and really Mrema is just a real step up in class from his previous opposition, and it is experience he needs. McGregor has not been 2 full rounds, the best record a previous opponent of his has had, was 9-5, for professional experience, he has made a start, and that's all you can really say.

Whether or not it is too early for McGregor to win a fight like this, is interesting, it depends on how quickly he is improving, it depends on Mrema, but I think because Mrema has not fought at a high level, because he has a couple of tough losses, I don't think this is too much, too soon for McGregor.

I think Mrema is probably a real solid athlete, most African fighters are, but how naturally resilient he will prove to be, I don't know, and how much skill he will have, hard to say.

I think McGregor will have the confident, aggressive start, he seems to be a puncher, his last opponent is very limited, quite poor really himself, but durable. If McGregor does have real potential, and is able to catch Mrema early, not let him off the hook, and Mrema doesn't have good survival knowledge, and is just a good fighter at Tanzanian level but that's it, then McGregor could definitely get him out of there early.
If Mrema can get through the first 2 rounds, he brings the fight into what is unfamiliar territory, and if McGregor keeps trying to get rid of him, but can't really hurt Mrema, not seriously, then Mrema might take some confidence, if McGregor punches himself out, then the fight goes futher down the stretch, and Mrema can use his general professional experience, test McGregor in a few different aspects.
McGregor might hurt Mrema early, but not badly enough to stop him, but instead of rushing it, he might listen to McGuigan, do the basics, be patient, get through a learning fight, and be likely to win it.

I think McGregor wins this, I think by stoppage, maybe in 6 or 7 rounds, I think he will be tested, Mrema might have some success in rounds 3-5, as the more experienced fighter, but I think really the better fighter, the puncher, will do the damage, and although he won't have everything his own way, it is just a learning fight for a young fighter who obviously needs experience, and ultimately, he will still manage to hurt Mrema, build on it, and stop him.

This is a good bill to box on for McGregor, it is not a stacked card, but that might draw more focus onto his fight. Channel 5 boxing isn't SkySports, Boxnation, it isn't a predominant sports channel, but it's doing ok. Davies vs Taylor was great, and Josh Taylor, a stablemate of McGregor's, fellow Scot, and of course it is his undercard, and because his opponent is a step up from Big Mouth Hype Job, and Vazquez, Campos, it is Viktor Postol, that makes it a bigger fight, a more interesting fight, and a better headline for the whole bill.
