Johnny Fisher v Alen Babic Tips

Total Rounds - Under 3.5 @ 4/6

Johnny Fisher faces the toughest test of his fledgling career, as he takes on Alen Babic, at the Copper Box Arena on Saturday evening.

Babic has his limitations, but you know exactly what to expect from ‘The Savage' - relentless pressure and every punch thrown with maximum power.

As a result, it is hardly surprising that all bar one of the Croatian’s fights have ended within six rounds, and he has only heard the final bell on a single occasion.

While Babic is dangerous offensively, he is open defensively. This weakness was his undoing when he challenged Lukasz Rozanski for the WBC Bridgerweight title. The Pole was able to stop ‘The Savage’ inside the opening three minutes.

Despite that loss, it is unlikely that the 33-year-old will display any caution against Fisher.

‘The Romford Bull’ has had a rapid rise since impressing in sparring against Joe Joyce, while in his second year of university. Joyce’s manager, Sam Jones, liked what he saw from the young heavyweight and signed him to a contract.

Since then, the Londoner’s personality and power have seen him develop into one of the biggest ticket sellers in the country.

Like Babic, the 25-year-old has only gone the scheduled distance once, with seven stoppages coming in the first three rounds, so it's fair to suggest that all signs point to this one ending early; most likely with Fisher’s hand getting raised.

I do like the 13/8 on offer for Fisher to get the win between rounds one and two, but given the fact that Romford man’s chin has yet to be checked, the sensible pick here is to back the fight ending inside the opening three rounds at 4/6.
