By Lee Thornton – 2018 has scheduled great fights on the horizon but I expect Lucas Matthysse vs Tewa Kiram to be one of the very best fights this year as to offer.
Tewa Kiram comes into this fight as a heavy underdog, when looking at Thailands Tewa Kiram he holds an outstanding record of 38-0 and has 28 of those wins by knockout.
Kiram is physically very strong and has a powerful right hand along with a good work rate.
Lucas Matthysse comes into this fight holding many advantages, however, such as hand speed, fighting on the inside and has a higher level of boxing IQ.
Matthysse is must watch tv he has demonstrated vicious knockouts, heart and skill for years in the sport of boxing.
This fight is a great test to see how many years Matthysse has left in the tank. If I was to pick a winner for this fight I believe that the 7-1 underdog Tewa Kiram has a great shot to win this fight, he is the younger fighter with a noticeable size advantage.
Kiram also frequently throws his overhand right a punch which Matthysse has shown throughout his career to have trouble defending.
Matthysse has been in many physically demanding fights vs the likes of Danny Garcia , John Molina Jr and Ruslan Provodnikov and has had eye-related issues in recent years.
However in saying all that, with Matthysse’s power and experience he could overwhelm Kiram and get him out of their fight early.
Kiram is jumping up in class of opponents here greatly we will soon find out what he is made of. Both these high action boxers will surely give us boxing fans a night we soon won’t forget.
