Luis Carlos Abregu vs. Antonin Decarie – 27th April 2013

Location – Club Atlético Vélez Sarsfield, Buenos Aires, Distrito Federal, Argentina

vacant WBC Silver welterweight title

Abregu is a big hitting prospect from Argentina he has a quite incredible KO percentage, dispatching 80% of his opponents inside the distance, he has one loss to his name – Timothy Bradley. While Abregu possesses power and real punching ability it appears to me he lacks a real boxing intelligence and technically he seems a bit “out of tune”, however when your dispatching that many opponents inside the distance i guess these things do not matter, yet.

Decarie is more your boxer type with good rounded skills and is certainly the more technically gifted fighter, he looks to have a good solid chin and takes shots well ,a good asset against an opponent with as much pop as Abregu.

The Canadian Decaries most impressive performance to date was in his last outing when he stopped a very well respected southpaw Alex Perez, in that fight he looked like he had gained an increase in power and looked very well conditioned so it may be that he has tweaked something in his training regime that has increased his punching power.

Whilst Abregu is the more raw fighter and the puncher in the fight, i see Decaries as the more composed and ring smart of the two, Abregu can be reckless and has hit the canvass several times in his career to date and while he has shown resilience to come through he has by a whisker at times and is fortunate to only have one loss to his name.

Decaries is 4/1 at Sporting Bet and while we have to be careful with him fighting in Abregu’s home country i do see him as a live underdog and with a shot.
