16 years is too much
One could seriously speculate about the Cuban’s chances, but let’s be honest: the 16-year age difference leaves him with no illusions. Without detracting from the merits of Nemkov.
Give Russian a title:
Sergey Pavlovich will become champion! But when will Jon Jones agree?
Vadim now has four wins in his last five fights, with his fifth, with Corey Anderson, being ruled an invalid due to a head butt. Of course Romero is dangerous, he is a great fighter with powerful punches. But if a sensation does not occur and Nemkov competently approaches the battle tactically, the Cuban will not have a chance.
Mayweather vs Gotti ended in a fight.
The rematch with Anderson pleased: Nemkov had a very competent tactical duel, obviously adding to the defense. These developments are to be used in a duel with a mixed martial arts veteran Romero.
When your opponent is 46 years old, you definitely shouldn’t rush. There is nowhere to hurry. He must keep the Cuban at a distance, actively work with the jab, and only after the third round, when the forces begin to leave Romero, he turns on. You can think of a knockout in the fifth round, but here everything will depend on the course of the fight. If Nemkov’s advantage at this point is obvious, it’s not worth the risk.
As for Yoel Romero, the 46-year-old Cuban veteran fights solely “for the love of art.” And, I must say, his fights are always spectacular. Romero’s fights are worth watching purely for aesthetic pleasure. The world champion and 2000 Olympics silver medalist in wrestling found his niche in MMA. And not a single fight. Romero pumped and shock technique. If he was 10-15 years younger…
The fight will be very serious:
Artur Beterbiev – Callum Smith. Three Russian titles at stake
Now the Cuban tactic is one, he practically does not change it, it does not matter who he fights with. Bursts of activity in the posture and transfer of the opponent to the ground. At the same time, there is a minimum of movement. With weak opponents, this approach is a good place to be, but it is unlikely to work in a fight with Vadim Nemkov. However, it is definitely not worth relaxing in a duel with Yoel. He is well aware that he has two, maximum three laps to win, so in the outing laps he will try to pick up the pace.
Jon Jones announced his willingness to fight Fury by the rules.
Romero was knocked out only once, he is strong, so it makes sense to bet that the fight will be complete and end with Nemkov’s victory. His speed and stamina are much higher. Yes, and tactically Vadim passed the last fights very competently. We recommend betting on Nemkov’s victory by decision. Or that the fight will be complete if your sportsbook has a limited line.
