William Zepeda v Maxi Hughes Tips

William Zepeda - Between Rounds 7 - 12 @ 10/11

Unbeaten lightweight contender William Zepeda looks to stake his claim for a world title shot on Saturday night, as he takes on Doncaster-native Maxi Hughes over twelve rounds in Las Vegas.

Zepeda, who boats an impressive 29-0 (25 KOs) has established himself as a key player in the red-hot 135lbs division with wins over Rene Alvarado, JoJo Diaz and, most recently, Mercito Gesta in September 2023.

The Mexican possess significant firepower in either hand and is one of the most relentless pressure fighters in boxing; throwing combination after combination, with power, to grind his opponents into submission.

After coming out on the wrong end of a controversial Majority Decision loss to George Kambosos last time out, it is testament to the willingness and bravery of Hughes that he finds himself straight back in another tough assignment.

This, for me, is a much tougher fight for Hughes due to the volume punching and power of Zepeda, the success Hughes had in slowing Kambosos down will be much more difficult to replicate against the swarming style of ‘Camaron’.

I feel that this is a fight that may start cagey, but eventually the activity of Zepeda will increase and it will be up to Hughes to match him for as long as he can.

While tough as ol’ boots and astute defensively, I would be surprised to see Hughes last the distance and I’ll be backing Zepeda to get the job done somewhere in the second half of the fight at 10/11.
