Two of those four leading light titles are put to be unified at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 18. Undefeated OleksandrThe Nail Gvozdyk is producing his second WBC and lineal light heavyweight names defense, while also undefeated Artur Beterbiev defends his IBF light heavyweight strap to the next time. Even the Ukraine indigenous, Gvozdyk, is a favored with the Beterbiev, coming back at +110.
This is the fight to Gvozdyk from the four he has been preferred by less than -250. The two previous spells came from Adonis Stevenson and Isaac Chilemba and the two ended by knockout. This is the time because his nearest chances were -500 if he battled with Radivoje Klajdzic in May which finished with a fifth-round knockout Beterbiev was an underdog.
Gvozdyk, the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist, is caught out of position, moving the ring looking to let his heavy hands move around. He does so viciously with 14 of the 17 professional wins ending by knockout, when the Ukraine native finds his opportunities to land. His knockout may come last December if he won the WBC and lineal heavyweight belts in the 11th round against Adonis Stevenson. That fight could be the final for Stevenson because he was placed into a coma on the following Monday and has been in this condition for many weeks.
Maybe matching Gvozdyk in punching energy is Beterbiev as just one of his 14 professional battles have made beyond the round and all have ended by knockout. When he chooses to strike, the Russia native is very competitive. Does he throw one punch at a time he puts up his chance and essentially bull-rushes his foe using a flurry.
Both men have conditioning but move about their struggles in radically different ways. Beterbiev is like a pitbull, marching his opponents down looking to enter a phone booth and swap hands, he is willing to eat a couple shots when it means he could land.
Unexpectedly, Gvozdyk is a tech, while keeping range with his jabs and straights, moving like a cat quickly from danger. That being said, if he smells blood into the water he moves on a attack. The question for this battle is will Beterbiev be in a position to corner Gvozdyk, or will be your Ukrainians footwork moving to help keep him secure.
