Oddsmakers at Bovada have Rau'shee Warren as the (-500) favorite with Zhanat Zhakiyanov as the (+350) underdog.
The highly regarded Rau'shee Warren has a 14-1-0 record, with that lone loss being a controversial split decision to Juan Carlos Payano, which he would later avenge. The win over Payano secured Warren the WBA Super bantamweight title and the IBO world bantamweight title.
He will defend those belts against the hard-hitting Zhanat "ZZ" Zhakiyanov who hails from Kazakhstan, a country known for its knockout punchers like Gennady "GGG" Golovkin.
Rau'shee Warren, on the other hand, is not known for his KO power, with only 4 of his 14 wins coming by way of knockout. So, this will definitely be a matchup of skills vs power.
