Crawford Vs Dulorme, Chavez Jr Vs Fonfara – Previews and Predictions

JULIO CESAR CHAVEZ JR VS ANDRZEJ FONFARA 

Julio Cesar Chavez Jr will fight at a 172 lb catchweight  for the first time with new trainer Joe Goossen in his corner, and now under the showtime banner following his separation from HBO and Top Rank, a fresh era for the popular Mexican fighter should see him motivated for this one.

He will face a tough test in Andrzej Fonfara who was impressive in his last outing against WBC light heavyweight champion Adonis Stevenson where he really showed his toughness and resilience in coming back from 2 early knockdowns to drop Stevenson late, but in the end, falling short on the scorecards.

This should be a good test for Chavez Jr in his first fight in over a year and I can see Fonfara causing him issues, however ultimately I think Chavez Jr will come through with the victory.

Chavez Jr’s chin has shown to be solid and I believe Fonfara has to win rounds convincingly to get a nod, any close fight and the scorecards will surely favour Chavez Jr, leaving me with the theory that Fonfara really needs a knockout to win this fight and I don’t see it happening.

We have Matthysse and Provodnikov this weekend, but this is also a fight that could be extremely entertaining, one in which I feel Chavez Jr will win via a unanimous decision

PREDICTION: CHAVEZ JR UD

TERENCE CRAWFORD VS THOMAS DULORME

2014 fighter of the year Terence Crawford returns to the ring for the first time in 2015 looking to propel himself to superstar status off the back of what was an exceptional break out year for him in 2014.

He will begin this year in a new weight division and will now be campaigning at 140 against a promising young fighter in Thomas Dulorme. Puerto Rican fighter Dulorme packs power and skill and could actually be underrated going into this bout.

But Crawford is a class act and I expect him to show that again this weekend by getting by the Puerto Rican, for me this is a late stoppage or points for the man from Nebraska, Terence Crawford.

PREDICTION: CRAWFORD UD
