Thank the Lord for Eddie Hearn getting shit done while the other networks and promoters have been all but crickets. Eddie recently announced and displayed some visuals of "fight camp" which will take in his backyard! He has quite the property so its not really a backyard feel more of a fight on some sort estate fit for Tony Montana....but I cant wait for it to happen. Theres some fights being thrown around but here is my ideal card and winner picks.
Main Event: Dillian Whyte (27-1) vs. Alexander Povetkin (35-2-1)
This matchup is already on the books but got postponed due to the virus. I hope it takes place at fight camp and we get to see the interim WBC title on the line.....Whyte on a 11 fight win streak looks to demand a title shot with an impressive win over Povetkin. I expect Whyte to come out aggressive and look to impress after his lack luster performance in his last outing.
My Pick: Dillian Whyte 7th Round TKO
Co-Main Event: Andy Ruiz (33-2) vs Derek Chisora (32-9)
THIS FIGHT WONT GO THE DISTANCE.......fan friendly matchup with two guys who will be looking to trade. Ruiz has to make a statement that he is not just a one hit wonder and he's taking shit seriously. It seems he is with his move to CaneloTeam. Del Boy is the perfect fighter to welcome Ruiz back....on a 3 fight win streak and known to bring the pressure.
My Pick: Andy Ruiz 6th Round TKO
Ryan Garcia (20-0) vs Jorge Linares (47-5)
Trash talk has already started between the two...Linares calling Garcia the social media champion and Garcia calling Linares old and over the hill. Great matchup between a decorated vet and a young star with everything to prove. Garcia definitely has the social media game on lock but I think the boxing throne is next for him as he continues to improve while being a part of CaneloTeam.
My Pick: Ryan Garcia 8th Round KO
