Prediction,

Oscar Rivas is good, was a very good amateur, a 2008 Olympian, defeated Kubrat Pulev. Rivas's career, so far, hasn't really taken off, he has only been in one title fight, never fought a world class opponent, never had a 12 round fight, but he is 23-0, his career has gone well so far, and at 30, although he doesn't have time to waste, he isn't an old fighter, especially not for a heavyweight, and it is not too late for him to achieve big things in boxing. Rivas can punch a bit, 17 stoppages.

Herve Hubeaux is decent, 29-2, so a good record, his only two defeats, a UD loss to then and still unbeaten Agit Kabayel (who we recently saw school Dereck Chisora), for the EBU title, and an MD defeat back in 2012, against an opponent who he defeated straight after. Hubeaux has never been stopped, only beaten twice, and since the Kabayel loss, he has gotten 3 wins, only 6 and 8 rounders, but still good in that he isn't coming right off a loss and/or a layoff.

I think this is the toughest test of Rivas's career so far, he doesn't have age or weight on his side, and he hasn't fought an opponent with a record as good as Hubeaux's record. This is only a 10 round fight, it is not an eliminator, but if Rivas wins this, then he should be able to step up in opposition after this fight.

For what it is worth, Rivas stopped Josy Abell in 2 rounds, Abell went 4/5 rounds against Tyson Fury and Kubrat Pulev, stopped Jason Pettaway in 1 round, Pettaway went past 3 rounds against Joseph Parker. It doesn't mean that much, but the fact that Rivas has stopped common opponents earlier than proven top heavyweights have, is something to take into consideration, doesn't prove anything, but suggests he is good even at world level.

I think Hubeaux will be there to win every bit as much as Rivas, if so, he will be a more than live opponent, definitely a good test for Rivas. I think Hubeaux will be tough, try to take the fight to Rivas, and I think he will make it competitive early, but I think by round 4, Rivas's better amateur experience, his skill, will be a strong factor in the fight. It will interesting to see how Rivas fares against an opponent who is on him all the time, pushing the fight, making him fight at a higher pace than he wants to at times. I think the fight will be quite competitive, but Rivas is much better than Hubeaux, he is a class above, and he will outpoint him, at least 97-93, maybe wider.

Wasn't that impressed with Rivas, good jab, good blocking ability, great body puncher, great amateur pedigree which shows in the ring at times, but, his stamina is poor, he was tiring a lot after 3 or 4 rounds, he lacks variety, I was expecting a better performance from Rivas.
