Denis Shafikov is the (-160) favorite and Richard Commey is the (+130) underdog at Bovada.
Richard Commey is a 24-1 fighter out of Accra, Ghana, and is very popular among avid boxing fans. His only loss came to PBC prospect Robert Easter Jr. in a very close split decision back in September.
Commey is a hard-hitter that has finished 22 of his 24 wins via the knockout, and he was able to knock Easter Jr. down in his lone loss. He will likely have to put Shafikov on the canvas at some point in this contest in order to come away with the win on foreign territory in Russia.
On the other hand, Denis Shafikov is a veteran with 37 wins and recently stopped Jamel Herring as the 'B-side' on a PBC card. The problem for Shafikov in this fight is that he gives up both a height and reach disadvantage, which means he won't be able to fight on the outside with Commey, and will be forced to exchange with the heavy handed challenger -- which could spell trouble.
Prediction: Bet on Richard Commey at (+130) odds.
