Prediction for the fight Mark Petrovsky – Kevin Johnson August 18, 2023
Behind the loud posters of the fights between Datsik and Taktarov, many could not notice the no less cool fight of the main Russian heavyweight prospect with an experienced veteran from the United States. Mark Petrovsky will have a boxing match with Kevin Johnson at the REN TV Fight Club tournament.
Datsik and Thompson will end the fight ahead of schedule:
Kolkhozka Vyacheslav Datsik or Oli Thompson’s center right? Everything will be decided in one fell swoop!
The Siberian is only 24 years old and has already become the world and Russian boxing champion (at the amateur level). No wonder Mark Petrovsky is considered by many to be one of the most promising fighters in the heavyweight class. At a professional level, the Russian debuted in 2022, and so far he has not had really strong rivals. He won all five fights and finished four ahead of schedule by knockout.
Coach Kravtsov: Tyson will crush Emelianenko in a boxing match.
The last duel that Sibiryak had with Maximiliano Alejandro Sosa. The Argentinian did not put Mark in any trouble, and he defeated him by technical knockout already in the first round. Petrovsky’s professional career has only just begun, but he shows great promise. True, there is not a single fight outside of Russia behind him yet.
Opposing the 24-year-old heavyweight will be a very experienced American. Kevin Johnson in 2009 was a contender for the WBC title. Vitali Klitschko was supposed to defend his belt against the Kingpin. As hard as the Ukrainian tried, he couldn’t knock out the American. In turn, Kevin wore the opponent down quite a bit and left a lot of abrasions on his face. However, he lost on points.
Fight of two veterans:
Oleg Taktarov – Jeff Monson. The main thing is not to increase the retirement age!
Already in the decline of his career, Johnson had fights with such world-class stars as Tyson Fury, Derek Chisora, Anthony Joshua. Kevin behaved with dignity with each of them. He lost to Gypsy King and Del Boy by single decision after 12 rounds. The Kingpin suffered his first early loss to AJ.
McGregor announced fights with Chandler, Gaethje and Nate Diaz.
Kevin was not going to finish fights, so he took part in small tournaments in Germany, but in the last seven such fights he won only two victories. On March 31, 2023, the professional boxer accepted an invitation to fight Vyacheslav Datsik at the REN TV Fight Club tournament. The signal was strong, and many believed that Red Tarzan would easily deal with another great rival. But this is a completely different level.
Johnson won by majority decision and was excited to continue participating in the fights that take place in Moscow. He now has to test the strength of young heavyweight prospect Mark Petrovsky. For a Russian, this is a great success – to prove his level with a worthy opponent who, in his best years, fought with the world’s legendary boxers.
Prediction and bet on the fight Mark Petrovsky – Kevin Johnson
“Fight Club REN TV” is considered an exhibition tournament, the results of which are not taken into account in the statistics. Even if Mark loses, it won’t affect his career in any way. Petrovsky is a very promising heavyweight with a good future.
However, Johnson, despite his age, keeps himself in shape, constantly participates in fights and has a wealth of experience in performance that any boxer can only dream of. He has already shown that no powerful blow can hurt him in a duel with Datsik. It seems that this fight may end in favor of the American. We suggest betting on Johnson’s victory by 11.5. This experience will definitely help Mark in the future.
