Israil Madrimov vs. Alejandro Barrera

10 rounds, junior middleweights

Israil Madrimov (3-0) is being fast tracked quickly in his professional career. He has so far stopped all three of his opponents and looks to develop in to a serious threat to the 154 pound division. Madrimov has a very extensive amateur career which is why they will look to move him up the ladder fast. In his 4th fight on saturday night he faces tough and experienced Alejandro Barrera (29-5). Barrera presents a tough challenge but he was chosen for Madrimov because he has lost 3 out of his last 4 fights and this figures to be a good time to catch him. Barrera went the whole distance with carlos Adames which was very impressive but he has been stopped against Errol Spence jr in the past.

Madrimov will overwhelm Barrera with his all out pressuring and Barrera will have little answers to the stress that he will be put under. Madrimov wins comfortably. The Pick is Israil Madrimov to win and continue his rise.

The Pick: Israil Madrimov to win fight
