Oscar Rivas a technical sound fighter
The undefeated Colombian Oscar Rivas with a record of 26-0, 18 KOs, has blasted out the world-title challenger Bryant Jennings last January. He is highly ranked in all governing bodies, 10 with the WBC, 7 in IBF, and 5 with both the WBA and WBO.
Oscar Rivas, 31, is hungry and technical sound fighter with a very impressive amateur record. He won against Kubrat Pulev in the 2008 Olympic Games. He also won against the Mexican Andy Ruiz who just stepped in to challenge Anthony Joshua. Rivas is very fit, weighing 240 pounds, very quick, sharp and accurate. With so many technical advantages over Whyte, you can choose Rivas to win the fight with 4/1 odds at Bet365 Sportsbook.
Dillian Whyte within touching distance of a world-title shot
Dillian Whyte is within touching distance of a world-title shot. He has earned his status as the WBC’s No. 1 ranked fighter. Last year he fought three times. He knocked out Lucas Browne in March. He floored Joseph Parker for the first time in a July points win. In addition, he dramatically stopped Derek Chisora in a December rematch.
The Brixton heavyweight (25-1, 18 KOs) is highly praised for risking his world-title ambitions against Rivas. According to online sportsbook news in the UK, he is the favourite (1/6), because he fights at home and has a bigger name. However, Whyte’s size (246 pounds) will not be much of a help against a slick fighter like Rivas. Whyte is also slower and moves less in the ring. If he does not improve his techniques, he might be devastated by Rivas.
