I think people are writing off Harris to quickly hear. I reckon he has a style and the physical attributes that will really trouble Witter and Jnr hasnt looked good for a while, though I didnt see his last fight.

Very much 50-50 for me, I might put a bit of coin on Harris.

I am going out on a limb and saying Witter by KO within 4 rounds. See what odds I can get on that.

How do you figure that? Witter has never been floored in his career, hits very hard and has fast hands. Even if Harris wins, I don't see how it will be easy.

Harris may KO him early but I could also see the reverse happening. Harris straight powerful shots are pretty brutal and he ko'd common opponents far more emphatically than Kostya Tyszu. Harris has a huge reach, his punches are compact and Witters defensive guard could be breached as his reflexes have faded

Yeah it could happen, but the point is that there is nothing on Witters resume that suggests he has anything but a very solid chin. It just seems a bizarre prediction to say Harris and easy. If someone said Harris late when Witters stamina was ****ed or Harris by points in a close fight...fine.

But there is nothing on Witters record to imply it will be easy for Harris and on the flip side there is evidence than Witter could KO him.

Thing is Witter does to much posing, waits to long to punch and has a low workrate. I think he lacks confidence in how his stamina holds up over the 12.

Now Harris has terrible stamina issues, but he has been the 12 before, and won big in some of those fights. He also has some late stoppages under his belt.

I could really picture Harris outboxing Witter from the outside with power and size, then holding out to grab the decision.

But I could most certainly picture Jnr starching Harris for the count.

Yeah I agree with you about Witters stamina and his pathetic work rate, but I have a feeling he is going to land early and at least rock Harris. Once he has someone hurt he is a very good finisher, if he hadn't broken his hand when he dropped N'Dou twice he would have finished him inside 4 rounds which would have been very impressive.

I am definitely excited about this fight though and it would not be shocking to see Harris win in the way you describe.
