Zhanibek Alimkhanuly vs Rob Brant (10 rounds- middleweight bout)

The undefeated Alimkhanuly will go up against a veteran boxer Rob Brant, in what would be a clash of two opposite personas. 9-0 as a pro boxer, the Kazakh star has found success pretty early in his career. However, Rob Brant, 26-2, has way more experience than his rival and can put it to use. Besides, Brant would also relish a few advantages in height and reach.

On looking at both men’s records, one can locate some big differences. However, as both men have shown their impeccable skills so far, their upcoming fight will be close. Though they are hard-hitters, they have seemed comfortable in going to the final bell. So, it complicates predicting the absolute result of the fight. However, Brant’s advantage of experience can play a pivotal role in the bout.

Prediction:- Rob Brant knocks out Zhanibek Alimkhanuly via TKO (7th round)

Giovanni Santillan vs Cecil McCalla (10 rounds- welterweight bout)

The undefeated Giovanni Santillan will end his one-year lay-off from the ring against McCalla, another high-profile fighter who has remained active in 2020 by accepting two bouts. While Santillan would go short under the physical parameters, his undefeated run has fans believing in him.

With 15 KOs in a 26-0 record, Santillan will rightly look into the eyes of McCalla. Although McCalla’s 23-4 record may not intimidate Santillan, the 36-year-old can still land a shocking upset. Meanwhile, Santillan, a southpaw boxer, can appear decisive in front of orthodox hitter McCalla. So, the undefeated star seems to have more chances to his name.

Prediction:- Giovanni Santillan beats Cecil McCalla via unanimous decision.

Robert Rodriguez vs Luis Fernando Saavedra (6 rounds- bantamweight bout)

After suffering four back-to-back losses, Saavedra returned to the win column with a UD win over Mario Hernandez in 2019. However, he disappeared from action after that and will dust off a lengthy spell of inactivity against the unbeaten Rodriguez. Meanwhile, it has been an absolutely different ride for the 22-year-old.

After debuting in 2018, Rodriguez fought 5 times in 2019 and won all of them. He re-appeared thrice in 2020, scoring two wins and one draw. That said, Robert Rodriguez is currently 9-0-1 in the ride and looks favorable to score his 10th win against Luis Fernando Saavedra.

Prediction:- Robert Rodriguez beats Luis Fernando Saavedra via KO (4th round)

Guido Vianello vs Marlon Williams  (4 rounds- heavyweight bout)

Guido Vianello is one of the undefeated boxers on the show tonight. The Italian orthodox is a knockout machine and has attained all his wins via stoppage, thereby boasting off a 7-0-1 record. Meanwhile, his rival, Marlon Williams (6-1), appears to be behind Vianello under every parameter.

Firstly, Vianello, 10 years younger than his opponent, has a better fighting resume. Furthermore, the short-lived fight of 4 rounds will also allow the Italian to be aggressive in the ring. Hence, he may not shy away from swinging as he will look to maintain his KO streak.

Prediction:- Guido Vianello knocks out Marlon Williams (first round)

Floyd Diaz vs Jaime Jasso (4 rounds- bantamweight bout)

One of the most evenly matched fights, Diaz vs Jasso will bring two newcomers against each other. Diaz, 1-0, and Jasso, 2-0 have a lot more to see in their professional career. While they are still at the start of their journeys, Diaz and Jasso will have to trade blows against each other to advance their respective careers.

They almost share similar physical attributes which further makes it a 50-50 fight. As neither side has scored a KO yet, we can expect them to either unleash their violent side or comfortably go to the last bell.

Prediction:- Jaime Jasso beats Floyd Diaz via split decision.

Subaru Murata vs Keven Monroy (4 rounds- super bantamweight bout)

Murata, a debutant boxer, will go up against Monroy, 1-1 as a professional. That said, it is another evenly matched fight that can see either man have their hand raised. Murata is a southpaw; Monroy is orthodox. Hence, this will add to the intrigue surrounding the newcomers’ bout.

However, Murata’s zero professional fight makes it hard to picture a possible outcome. Although he will relish a 2” height advantage, lack of experience can be costly for the Japanese pugilist. That said, Monroy would also have to look for his chances to win throughout the fight.

Prediction:- Keven Monroy beats Subaru Murata via unanimous decision.

Jonatan Hernan Godoy vs DeMichael Harris (4 rounds- lightweight bout)

Godoy’s 5-8 record has seen several scratchy losses so far. He is also on the brink of losing his relevancy and the upcoming fight would be a massive chance to revive himself in the ride. However, DeMichael, an undefeated boxer, has scored all 3 of his wins via stoppage. This hands the American the advantage over the Argentinian.

Given the unpredictability of boxing, anything can happen. As Godoy has a life-changing fight ahead, he may use the chance to bring his best side to the display. But as of now, DeMichael Harris is the favorite.

Prediction:- DeMichael Harris knocks out Jonatan Hernan Godoy (Second round)

All these fights will take place before Vasyl Lomachenko and Masayoshi Nakatani collide. As the main event will see two prime lightweight boxers collide, Top Rank can have a successful weekend at the Box Office.
