Headline bout for ESPN2’s Friday Night Fights is a pair of lightweights going 10 rounds in Shelton WA:
Andrey Klimov (15-0-0, 8 KOs) vs John Molina (25-2-0, 20 KOs)
Here are Klimov’s cycles:
For a boxer, these cycles are actually pretty good. Nothing but fierce power coming from Andrey’s gloves here. He’ll connect but he’s quite prone to missing a lot of punches. It’s all about having a one-track mind here.
Tougher cycles for Molina, coming out of a triple low and tough physical/emotional critical period, the after-effects of which may still be in effect this evening. Combined with a low point in his mental cycle, I can’t see him lasting for long.
Late KO (rounds 7-10) from Klimov.
Saturday’s best fight (per the folks at BoxRec) is in Carson CA:
Marcos Rene Maidana(33-3-0, 30 KOs), vs Josesito Lopez (30-5-0, 18 KOs), 12 rounds, for Marcos’s WBC InterContinental welterweight belt.
Here are Josesito’s cycles:
Couldn’t sign a worse date to go boxing on. Triple-low cycles tell the story.
As for the champion:
Cycles are not much better; he’s starting to come around again and get his bearings, but an uphill battle all the way.
As much as the ranking appears to be for this fight, I’m predicting a snoozefest. Maidana to retain the title by split decision.
