  • It takes 38 fights for one guy and 7 fights for the other guy to get an elimination fight, hmm?

  • Beautiful 50/50 matchup. Soro experience could make the difference, but I like Madrimov. Both guys know how to box and their punching power is a bit more than decent. I almost sure it will be a very entertaining fight. Good luck to the winner, because this is a ticket to face the winner of the rematch between Charlo and Castaño. Soro lost to Castaño in 2017 in a terrific fight.

  • This is a dangerous step up for Madrimov in only his eighth fight, and proves that he is on the hunt for a world title.
