Prediction,

Good fight. This tournament doesn't seem like much because it has already had a season at 200, and there aren't many names, but when you do some research, you see, this has the makings of 4 good fights for an entertaining quarterfinal round.

Both these guys are undefeated, both are young, under 30, so probably in their primes or nearing that time, but Tabiti is a couple of years older than Fayfer, and has had 7 less fights, which isn't a good combination, but Tabiti might be the favourite in this fight, because he fought Steve Cunningham, biggest name on eiether record, and fought him on the Mayweather vs McGregor undercard as well, so he has more of a reputation.

Tabiti trains at the Mayweather gym, which says a lot about what he is learning in the gym, the quality sparring, the value of the advice he gets, it doesn't necessarily mean he is world level, but it is definitely a great place for a fighter to train. Tabiti has the better resume, with his last two wins, beating Cunningham and Kayode, I don't recognise a single name on Fayfer's record, he has had a few title fights, Baltic, International, Asian title (no idea why he fought for an Asian title, as a Russian based Russian), and Tabiti has had USA title fights, North American Title fights, so title wise, there isn't much in it, although Tabiti probably has the edge, but in terms of sheer calibre of opponent, records of opponents, levels opponents have been at, Tabiti has the much better experience, fought the much better opponents, but still, both these guys, unproven at world level.

These guys can punch, but I think given Tabiti has fought the better opponents, and he has 11% more KOs, we can assume he hits harder.

Neither of these guys were great amateurs, there is no record of any amateur success on Fayfer's BoxRec, and not much on Tabiti's, only had 38 fights, but he did compete in the Golden Gloves, so he was probably the better amateur.

There is no record of either being dropped on BoxRec, so we can assume they have good chins, but on the other hand, I don't think their chins have been really tested, especially not Fayfer's.

Fayfer has had 7 more fights, done 30 more rounds than Tabiti, so Fayfer has more general professional experience.

If this goes past 10 rounds, it will be unfamiliar territory for Tabiti, but not for Fayfer, because he has been 12 rounds once before.

Fayfer fought 4 times in 2017, and fought 4 months ago, he hasn't been that active, hasn't been past 4 rounds in oevr a year, but still, fought in June, and had plenty of fights last year, so he hasn't been inactive. Tabiti beat Cunningham 14 months ago, has had one fight since, stopped Kayode in 6 in May, so he hasn't been inactive, maybe not quite as active as ideal at this stage of his career, but still, inactivity shouldn't be an issue for him. I don't think activity will really be a factor in this fight.

I rate Tabiti, I was impressed with his performance against Cunningham, trains in the Mayweather gym, has fought the better opposition, and I think he is the better fighter, so I think he'll win this fight, but not easy, because Fayfer is young, fresh, and, is 23-0, can punch, it should be a competitive fight.

I think round after round, Fayfer will be competing, but Tabiti will be faster, busier, have better footwork, prove to be the more complete fighter, and he will be winning the rounds, I think Fayfer might have some success, late, but he won't be able to put Tabiti down as he needs to, to win the fight, and Tabiti will win a landslide UD.

Hi Champion97,

Love this report - are you on twitter at all?

Welcome to eye on the ring.

No I'm not, I don't do social media.

My god I regret watching this fight. Worst fight I've seen all year. Tabiti fought completely defensively, and Fayfer held so much he should have been DQed. Hard to say too much based on an ugly fight, but I wasn't impressed with Tabiti at all.

Worse than Okolie vs. Askin?

I didn't watch that one, I usually catch UK fights after the results happen since I'm in the states. Result got leaked to me before I watched it, and obviously I wasn't going to subject myself to that torment when I know the result beforehand.

Fair enough, I wish I didn't watch it live myself.

I might only watch highlights of this one, based on what people have been saying about the lack of entertainment value.

I decided to watch this since I have some free time, but only because I want to write a half-decent prediction breakdown for Dorticos vs Tabiti.

I think with the point deduction (which was overdue, let's be honest), I think that sealed the fate of Ruslan Fayfer, a lot of those rounds were close, it was what you liked. It was a shame, because on paper, this fight was going to be a fantastic little scrap, but the styles didn't gel, didn't quite take off the way we hoped. Tabiti didn't use his speed as well as he could have, he was well aware of Fayfer's power, might have had to much respect, but I thought he was nicking those early rounds, I thought in the middle part of the fight he just took his foot off the gas amd didn't do enough work, even though he did the cleaner work, there wasn't enough, and Fayfer's scrappier work won those middle rounds, but in the last few rounds there, Tabiti picked up the pace, landed cleaner shots, and I think the nail in the coffin for Fayfer was that well warranted point deduction, because of all the head clashes, and I think Tabiti is the rightful winner.
