17 Oct Boxing: Gvozdyk vs Beterbiev Odds and Prediction
Two of those four major light heavyweight names are put to be unified at the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 18. Undefeated OleksandrThe Nail Gvozdyk is making his second WBC and lineal light heavyweight titles shield, while also undefeated Artur Beterbiev defends his IBF light heavyweight strap for the third time. Even the Ukraine indigenous, Gvozdyk, is now a favorite with all the Russian, Beterbiev, coming back in +110.
This is actually the battle for Gvozdyk out of the previous four that hes been preferred by less than -250. The two previous spells came from Isaac Chilemba and Adonis Stevenson and the two ended by knockout. This is the very first time as his chances were -500 if he fought with Radivoje Klajdzic in May which finished with a fifth-round knockout Beterbiev has been an underdog.
The 2012 Olympic bronze medalist, Gvozdyk, is rarely caught out of position, moving across the ring searching to allow his hands go. With 14 of his 17 professional wins end by knockout Whenever the Ukraine native finds his opportunities to land cleanly he does. His knockout may come last December when he won both the WBC and light heavyweight belts in the round against Adonis Stevenson. That struggle could be the final for Stevenson as he has been in this state for many weeks and was placed into a medically induced coma on the following Monday.
Perhaps matching Gvozdyk in punching power is Beterbiev as just one of his 14 professional battles have made past the round and all have finished by knockout. When he chooses to strike the Russia native is aggressive. Rarely does he throw one punch at a time he his foe with a flurry and puts up his opportunity.
Both guys have conditioning but move about their fights in different ways. Beterbiev resembles a pitbull down looking to enter a phone booth and exchange hands, he is prepared to eat a couple shots when it means that he can land.
Conversely, Gvozdyk is a tech, while maintaining range together with his lengthy jabs and straights moving like a cat quickly from risk. That said, if he smells blood into the water he goes on a attack. The question for this battle is will Beterbiev be able to corner Gvozdyk, or will be the Ukrainians footwork moving to help keep him safe.
