Re: Cunningham & Sylvester Jan 22nd -= Thoughts
It's a Euro level fight for Sylvester. Even if he was beaten by Belghecham in the French tournament I think Bouadla is now #2 in France. His level of opposition has been correct recently with convincing victories over decent opponents. In fact he has no real strong points but no major flaws. He is dedicated and he has improved progressively. Problem is that he has average power and it's unlikely he stops or even hurts Sylvester. He works with his jab and Sylvester's jab is better imo.
Bouadla should logically lose on points but he can look competitive. Hakkar vs Hopkins was a mismatch but here it's different : Sylvester is a titleholder, not the boss of the division...
