Daniel Roman vs. Murodjon Akhmadaliev

12 rounds, for Roman's IBF/WBA junior featherweight title
Daniel Roman (27-2) will defend his WBA and IBF super bantamweight titles against the formidable former amateur star Murodjon Akhmadaliev (7-0). Although Roman is the defending champion, it is Akhmadaliev that is the big favourite with the bookies despite the fact that he only has had 7 fights as a professional and never faced anyone remotely close to the talent that Daniel Roman possesses. We have found very good value in this fight.
Picking Daniel Roman to win this fight pays an impressive +215 (3.15 decimal odds) which is very good value considering how good Roman is. He has more experience against good opposition and he has more experience in long fights. The pick is Daniel Roman to win and remain the champion in what might be a very close affair.
The Pick: Daniel Roman to win fight
