Pre-buzz surrounding the match
Madrimov is the favorite for the upcoming bout, with zero losses so far in his professional career. His last match against Charlie Navarro in February 2020, ended with a win by technical knockout in the 6th round and Madrimov is in red-hot form. The rankings are also in Madrimov's favor. He's currently ranked second in the 154lb division while Walker stands at number six. However, seeing as this is an elimination match, both fighters are going to give their all. And while Walker's stats are considerably lower than Madrimov's, anything can happen in the ring.
Who will win?
Looking at the stats alone, this should be Madrimov's game. He's younger and more powerful than Eric Walker but Walker's experience may still help him pull a win out of his hat. As it stands, we're going to throw our weight behind Madrimov to win the bout.
