Boxing: Gvozdyk vs Beterbiev Odds and Prediction

Two of the four leading light names are set to be merged in the Liacouras Center in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on October 18. Undefeated OleksandrThe Nail Gvozdyk is producing his next WBC and lineal light heavyweight titles defense, while also-undefeated Artur Beterbiev defends his IBF light heavyweight ring to the next time. Even the Ukraine indigenous, Gvozdyk, is now a favorite with all the Beterbiev.
This is actually the third time in??Gvozdyks last four fights he was favored by less than -250. The two previous bouts were against Adonis Stevenson and Isaac Chilemba and both ended by knockout. This is the time Beterbiev has been an underdog, as his odds were -500 once he fought with Radivoje Klajdzic in May, a fight that ended with a knockout.
Even the 2012 Olympic bronze medalist, Gvozdyk, is caught out of place, moving the ring looking for angles to let his heavy hands move around. When the Ukraine native discovers his chances to land cleanly, he does with 14 of the 17 wins ending by knockout. If he won both the WBC and heavyweight straps from Adonis Stevenson from the round his devastating knockout may have come last December. That fight could be the last for Stevenson because he was put into a coma on the following Monday and was in that state for several weeks.
Maybe fitting Gvozdyk in hitting electricity is Beterbiev. It has been made by only one of his 14 professional fights and all have ended by knockout. When he decides to attack the Russia native is very aggressive. Does he throw one punch at a time, rather??he his foe using a flurry and sets his opportunity up.
Both guys have conditioning but go about their struggles in different ways. Beterbiev resembles a pitbull, marching down his opponents while looking to get into a phone booth and exchange hands. He is willing to consume a couple of shots when it means he can land.
Conversely, Gvozdyk is a tech, moving like a kitty quickly from danger, while keeping range together with his jabs and straights. That having been said, when he smells blood in the water, he moves on a full-on attack. The issue for this fight would be will Beterbiev be able to corner Gvozdyk, or is the footwork of the Ukrainian going to help keep him safe?
