Prediction for the fight Vladimir Mineev – Rafael Carvalho
At the professional level, Mineev fought 19 fights, in which he suffered only one defeat. He also recorded a draw, in a duel with Magomed Ismailov. Vladimir approaches the next fight with a series of six straight victories, notably over Magomed Ismailov and Fernando Rodríguez.
Brilliantly won battles with strong opponents opened new doors for Mineev. However, he previously promised that he would put his wrestling career on pause. Volzhanin kept his promise. Vladimir headed to the Northern Military District.
Larionov remains undefeated:
“Torpedo” – “Kunlun”. Igor Larionov will land the Chinese.
It recently became known that Mineev received an electric shock there. He said that he could not hear with his right ear for several days. Fortunately, there were no serious consequences. He has already recovered and is preparing with all his strength for the fight with Rafael Carvalho.
The Brazilian had 23 fights at the professional level. At first, my career went like clockwork. Carvalho won the vacant Bellator middleweight title and defended it three times, defeating Melvin Manhoef twice (split decision and spectacular knockout) and defeating Alessio Sakara (knockout).
However, after this, Rafael lost the champion title, losing to Gegard Mousasi. From there everything went downhill. Apparently, the Brazilian has lost his winning mentality and self-confidence. He only won one of his last seven fights: he defeated Chidi Njokuani.
The 37-year-old Brazilian is approaching the end of his career. The physical condition is no longer the same and everything goes wrong with the mood. He started losing against everyone. Rafael fought his last fight in mid-April 2022. He then lost to Dovletdzhan Yagshimuradov (by TKO in the second round).
“Lada” cannot cope with “Magnitka”:
“Metallurgist” – “Lada”. Andrey Razin will investigate Oleg Bratash
It is curious that Carvalho, on the eve of the fight with Mineev, said that the Russian should be careful. He shared his opinion that if Volzhanin transfers his MMA habits to kickboxing, he could get knocked out. The answer did not take long to arrive.
Vladimir turned to Rafael. He stated that Russian paratroopers are not afraid of anything, not sweat, not blood, not dirt, not the cold. Mineev also recommended the Brazilian take out Russian health insurance. Something tells me that maybe I really need it.
What to bet on?
First of all, Mineev is younger, faster and more durable. Secondly, he approaches the fight in excellent shape, with six straight wins. It seems that he will not have problems with the Brazilian, who has slowed down a lot. There is a high probability that Vladimir will win the fight ahead of schedule.
Also, the fight will take place in Russia, in the city of Elista. The support of his home fans will certainly give Volzhanin an extra boost of energy. He deservedly became the town’s favorite. Mineev always keeps his word and for this he receives additional recognition, as well as sincere love from the public.
Tender: Vladimir Mineev’s victory in 1.35.
