Willy Hutchinson v Craig Richards Tips

Craig Richards - Between Rounds 7 - 12 @ 10/3

The first fight on the Queensberry v Matchroom card this weekend will see former light-heavyweight world title contender Craig Richards going up against Willy Hutchinson.

Richards, of Mathroom Boxing, boasts all of the experience, whilst youth is definitely on the side of Hutchinson, as the two get set for what should be a cracking domestic affair in Saudi Arabia.

I expect this to be a tricky fight for Richards early on - Hutchinson, with his slick boxing skills, will give him problems early on I feel, but I expect the more experienced man in the ring to come on strong during those mid to late rounds.

For me, this fight may just come too soon for Hutchinson.

I am very surprised that he is making a jump of this magnitude at this stage of his career, but it represents a great opportunity for him to upset the apple cart nonetheless.

I just like the toughness, resilience and experience of Craig 'Spider' Richards, which is why I am backing him to overcome a few early troubles on Saturday night before ultimately prevailing in the second half of the fight.

Richards to prevail 'Between Rounds 7 - 12' is where the value lies for me, especially with it being priced up at 10/3.

All odds were correct and available at the time of writing and are subject to fluctuation.
