Richardson Hitchins Betting Preview

Hitchins (16-0-0) is coming off of a unanimous decision victory against John Bauza back in February of this year. This improved his record and ranking, as he is now the 18th best super lightweight boxer in the world and ninth best in the United States.

Out of 16 bouts, he has battled in 94 rounds with a knockout percentage of 43.75. At this rate, it is nearly a coin flip for his chances of finishing a fight early each time he enters the ring.

At just 25 years old, he has earned a lot of respect from the boxing world. However, he needs a victory from this battle to take the next step in his career.

His foot is in the door so to speak on his chances to improve his career. With his ability inside the ring, it should result in a great battle.

Jose Zepeda Betting Preview

Zepeda (37-3-0) is returning to action after a unanimous decision win over Neeraj Goyat back in March earlier this year. This put him back on the winning side after losing to Regis Prograis by knockout in the fight prior.

Looking at his 40 battles, he has participated in 180 rounds and has a knockout percentage at 75.68. He is just slightly ahead of Hitchins in the rankings, as he sits at 17th in the world rankings and eighth best in the US one.

Zepeda will do everything he can in order to protect his position in the rankings. He knows that if he can land a win here against a rising star, it would set up a conversation about a title fight down the line.

He has had great success inside the ring for many years. But, he has to showcase his skills at 34 to show that he can still handle himself against younger stars.
