Emmanuel Taylor Vs Karim Mayfield 

Preview, Prediction and betting recommendation 

This is a solid light welterweight clash between two fringe contender’s, Mayfield was highly touted a couple of years ago to go on to achieve big things in the professional ranks and at 33 time is running out after a major set back in his last fight losing a unanimous decision to Puerto Rican Thomas Dulorme, this is a must win fight for the now 18-1-1 Karim Mayfield. 

Emmanuel Taylor despite being only 23 has been in the ring the same amount of times as Mayfield and has had a good career so far with only 2 losses on his record a close 8 round split decision loss to a modest Prenice Brewer and a unanimous decision loss to now WBO light welterweight champion Chris Algieri. 

The pressure is on Mayfield to win this one, and I think he will he is a very talented fighter who should match up against Taylor well providing he utilises his boxing ability, Emmanuel is solid though and it wouldn’t surprise me if this bout was relatively close. 

Surprisingly Mayfield can be had at 8/11, I thought he may come in a bit shorter than that, but I am not complaining as he is my pick tonight, make the play with Bet365 if you can otherwise cover the draw so you don’t get burnt. 

The bout is televised on Friday fight nights – BT Sports at at 1am, and should be a decent watch for those that want to stay up for some boxing tonight.
