Prediction,

As an amateur, Szello fought Beterbiev, had 320 bouts, 275 wins, was in the world amateur championships in 2007, was a 2008 Olympian, and he had at least 13 WSB fights, fought Gvozdyk, Egorov. There is no record of Merhy's amateur career on his BoxRec, so it's highly likely he didn't have much of an amateur career.

As a professional, Merhy is more experienced, he's had a few more fights, but more importantly, Szello hasn't been past 10 rounds, Merhy has an 11th round stoppage, he's been 12 rounds, been in against Arsen Goulamirian, almost certainly the best opponent between Merhy and Szello, he lost that fight, but it's still professional experience Szello doesn't have.

I think overall, although Merhy is the more experienced professional, Szello is the more experienced fighter, because of the vast difference in amateur and WSB experience.

Merhy is 26, he should be improving, Szello is 36, so he is probably declining, that will probably be at least a small factor in this fight.

I think Merhy stops Szello late.

Yeah I think Szello is too old to win this, I do think he is the better skilled boxer. But it's also hard to see him get the nod in Belgium. Szello sets up his shots pretty well and fires them straight. Merhy reminds me of Yarde alot for some reason. I think their styles are similar

I know a boxing reporter I follow was giving it a round by round score as it was ongoing, so it was airing somewhere, as this dude is in the states. Imagine it will be available in a couple days. Will link it when/if I find it.
