Oscar Rivas vs Ryan Rozicki Pick
It will be a real stretch betting on the underdog here with his (+500). However, this is precisely what we think is going to happen. Rozicki has no intention of slowing down and he has repeatedly proven his worth. Sporting 13 KOs to his name he will give Rivas a good run for his money. Put simply, Rivas cannot let Rozicki punch him.
Rozicki is also well-versed in fighting super heavyweights back in his amateur years and while not every fight was a win he is trained to take on professional boxers in this category. We definitely want to see him as the WBC Bridgerweight world champion, a first in the history of the game.
