Buatsi vs Richards Prediction:

In the forthcoming fight, Joshua Buatsi is the clear front-runner. Pro-fighting organizations are also trying to advertise him as the better fighter. 10 opponents have been stopped or knocked out, including Riards Bolotiks and Liam Conroy. Two of Craig Richards’ previous three opponents have been knocked out, with only Bivol surviving the fight. When it comes to fighting experience, he has just five more fights than Buatsi. A crack at the world title at age 32 may be his last chance to prove himself. Buatsi will have his work cut out for him when he faces off against Richards, a talented American. However, he is expected to win.

Prediction: Joshua Buatsi will win the fight.
