Fight fans usually need to wait until the weekend to get their boxing fix, but we have a mid-afternoon event set to go on Wednesday with some live boxing from the UK. It has taken a while for boxing to return after the pandemic lockdown, but MTK Global will be back in action here, with this event set to go at the Production Park Studios in Yorkshire, England. There are 4 fights on the main card, and you can catch all the action on ESPN+ starting at 3 PM EST. There is a lot of ground to cover here, so let’s take a closer look at each of the fights for you to place your bets against their Boxing odds.
Jono Carroll vs Maxi Hughes Main Card Predictions
Craig MacIntyre Vs Ishmael Ellis
The MTK Global fight night begins with a super-lightweight bout that features a fighter with an eye on a title shot in the weight class. Scottish fighter Craig MacIntrye comes into this bout with an undefeated 11-0-1 record, with 4 of those wins coming by way of KO. He us used to fighting in Scotland in front of a partisan crowd, so it’s going to be interesting to see how he handles the trip north of the border. Ellis is 11-2 in his pro career, but those losses have come in his last 4 fights, including his last bout back in November of last year. MacIntyre wins this one.
Sean McComb Vs Siar Ozgul
We have what would, on paper at least, appear to be something of a mismatch, as these are fighters heading in very different directions at the moment. Sean McComb is moving up the Super-Lightweight ranks with a perfect 10-0 record, with half of his wins coming by way of the KO. Things have not been quite so good for Ozgul of late, as he is coming into this fight on the heels of back to back losses and 4 defeats in his last 5. I’m on McComb for the KO win.
Pierce O’Leary Vs Jacob Quinn
Normally, when a fighter is a late addition to a bout, they come in as the underdog with little chance of winning. I think we might well see the opposite here, as this is a fight that I think Jacob Quin can win. Both of these fighters are about as evenly matched as it gets, with both of them sitting with a perfect 4-0 record. Given how closely matched they are, I think we will see this one going the distance, with the underdog Quinn getting the win on points.
Jono Carroll Vs Maxi Hughes
The headline event of the night sees a pair of seasoned pros go head to in a fight that I think might be over quite quickly. Maxi Hughes comes in as a big underdog for this one, mostly due to the fact that he is very inconsistent and just 3-2 in his last 5 fights. He does have 20 wins as a pro, so we should perhaps not write him off completely. Carroll is 18-1-1 in his career and actually did have a fight in March right before things shut down. Many viewed that win as the best performance of his career, so he will look to keep the momentum going with a win here, which I think he gets via KO/
