Ok fight fans it’s that time of the week again fight night preview time. This week we are in the boxing capital of the world Las Vegas for a packed night of action. All the action is live on Sky Sports Main Event from 3.20 am Sunday morning.
Tevin Farmer V Kenichi Ogawa
This fight is for the vacant IBF title and Tevin Farmer comes into this his first shot at a world title with a record of 25-4-1 with 5 knockouts. He’s won all of his last 6 fights, but only 1 of them by knockout. In his last fight he beat Arturo Santos Reyes by unanimous decision.
This is also Kenichi Ogawa’s first shot at a world title, it is also his first fight outside of Japan and you never know how that will affect a fighter. He comes into this fight with a record of 22-1 with 17 knockouts. He’s won all of his last 6 fights, 4 of them by knockout. In his last fight he beat Hirotsgu Yamamoto with a 2nd round knockout
This fight could be a difficult one to call because we’ve got one boxer who is not a big puncher but he’s got very good boxing skills, and we’ve got a boxer with good boxing skills and knockout power. I think if Farmer can get his jab working and use his boxing skills then he will win on points. However if Ogawa can start landing power shots I think he will win by late stoppage.
Francisco Vargas V Stephen Smith
Francisco Vargas comes into this fight with a record of 23-1-2 with 17 knockouts. He’s won 4 out of his last 6 fights all of them by knockout with 1 loss and 1 draw. In his last fight he was stopped in the 11th round by Miguel Berchelt.
Stephen Smith comes into this fight with a record of 25-3 with 15 knockouts. He’s won 4 out of his last 6 fights, 3 of them by knockout both of his losses have come in world title fights. In his last fight he beat Karoly Gallovich with a 1st round knockout.
On paper this one could be fight of the night because we’ve got 2 boxers that need a win to get their careers back on track. I think this fight is going to come down to who makes the better start and can put rounds in the bank early. Both men have got punching power so I can’t see it going the distance. Whoever wins it should put them back in the world title hunt. In my opinion this could be a career defining fight for both men, because whoever loses it’s difficult to see where they go from here.
Orlando Salido V Miguel Roman
Orlando Salido comes into this fight with a record of 44-13-4 with 31 knockouts. He’s won 3 out of his last 6 fights, 2 of them by knockout, with 1 loss and 2 draws. In his last fight he beat Aristides Perez with a 7th round stoppage.
Miguel Roman comes into this fight with a record of 57-12 with 44 knockouts. He’s won 5 out of his last 6 fights, all of them by knockout. In his last fight he beat Nery Saguilan with a 12th round stoppage.
This could be a really good one to watch and looking at their records it’s not going to go the distance, I think it could come down to who lands clean first. However if I had to pick a winner I would go for Roman although there shouldn’t be much in it.
