Maxi Hughes vs Kid Galahad: Odds & Prediction
- Maxi Hughes +155
- Kid Galahad -205
Prediction: Galahad to win the bout
Both fighters are same-aged with the same level of experience. Galahad got some awkward moves that confuses the opponent and breaks his aggressive pace. Hughes is not an easy deal either. He is on a stunning winning streak that brought him a bunch of titles including the WBC silver, British, and the IBF world strap. He defended his title beating Ryan Walsh earlier this year. He had been inactive for the past six months while his opponent Galahad was so for ten months. The Brit will try to pick some advantage of it.
Hughes has a win-lose-draw record of 25-5-2. Only five of the wins came by knockouts. On the other end, Galahad will enter the ring with a record of 28 wins against a pair of defeats and no draws. 17 of the wins, which is 56%, came by knockouts. He lost to Kiko Martinez last year. However, some exciting domestic bouts scheduled later this year still await Galahad but he will battle hard to win the title on Saturday.
