Matchroom Fight Night Main Event – Joshua Buatsi (UK) vs Marko Calic (Croatia)
Joshua Buatsi (12-0)
Joshua Buatsi is one of the biggest light-heavyweight prospects in boxing at the moment and is on the verge to challenge for a world title. He won the bronze medal in the 2016 Olympics and is currently managed by Heavyweight champion Anthony Joshua. He is currently fourth in the WBA and the IBF rankings, so he is just a few steps away from pursuing championship glory after seven consecutive knockout wins. Will he be able to make it eight in a row?
Marko Calic (11-0)
Marko Calic will most definitely be the biggest and toughest opponent for Buatsi. The 6’3 Croatian light heavyweight has beat fellow heavyweight Alen Babic twice in the amateur national championships. He has been boxing since he was six-years-old and will give the young Brit a tough test after being out of the ring for more than a year.
Matchroom Fight Night Co-Main Event – Chantelle Cameron (UK) vs Adriana dos Santos Araujo (Brazil)
Chantelle Cameron (12-0)
Many experts believe that Chantelle might be one of the best of them all and finally gets a first world title shot. Throughout her career she climbed through the rankings to make herself mandatory for a world title, first beating Anisha Basheel in a WBC lightweight title eliminator and receiving the change to face undisputed lightweight champion Katie Taylor who she lost to in the amateurs.
She then moved up to light-welterweight and beating former three-weight world champion Anahi Sanchez to face unified world champion Jessica McCaskill. Now that McCaskill moved up to welterweight, Cameron gets a chance to fight for the vacant WBC light-welterweight title.
Adriana dos Santos Araujo (6-0)
Araujo has a great amateur pedigree and won the Bronze medal at the 2016 Olympics who boxed Katie Taylor, beat Natasha Jonas and Rose Volante. However, she started her pro career at 35 and is at the back end of her career, so this world title shot might be her first and only attempt to become world champion.
“Adriana is a tough girl, really tough. She loads up with her punches. I don’t think she’s a bigger puncher than me. I’ll be wary of her punches, obviously I don’t want to be getting caught, but we’ve got to see if she can take my shots as well, because I know I can punch. She has beat some good names and has a good pedigree, so I’m expecting a tough 10 rounds and can see it being a bit of a war.” (Chantelle Cameron on Adrianna dos Santos Araujo – WBN – World Boxing News).

Giulio’s Betting Tips
I believe Chantelle will get through her fight easily, but even though she has had seven knockouts, I believe this she will win this fight on points. Chantelle Cameron to Win by Points is 4/7* with Mark Jarvis.
Alen Babic had stopped Winters amazingly and I do not see this one going a different way. I believe Babic will stop Kennedy in the first 4 rounds. Alen Babic to Win in Rounds 3-4 is 5/2* with Mark Jarvis.
The way the Joshua Buatsi boxes, I do not see this fight ending in a decision. Buatsi vs Calic to end in Rounds 9-10 is 11/1 with Mark Jarvis.
