Jeff Horn vs. Michael Zerafa

12 rounds, middleweights

Jeff Horn is better fighter than he is given credit for. In his last fight he beat a faded Anthony Mundine by a first round knockout which was really impressive although Mundine was way past his prime. He also has that win over Manny Pacquiao where he put in a career best performance. His lone loss came against the formidable Terence Crawford, who just might be the best fighter pound for pound at the moment. He was in all honesty no match for Crawford, but not many fighters are today. This time he is facing Michael Zerafa at middleweight which is where he plans to campaign from now on. Zerafa has a record of 26-3 with 15ko´s and has been stopped once before.

Zerafa showed his limitations against Kell Brook late last year and it is difficult to see him doing any better against Jeff Horn who will be all over him throwing punches from all angles. When Horn faces fighters with less than great defense, he is able to maul them on the inside and making it an ugly fight which is what we expect to see here. The Pick is Jeff Horn to win
