How many wins and losses Lewis Ritson have?
Lewis Ritson has 20 wins and 1 loss.
How many wins and losses Miguel Vazquez have?
Miguel Vazquez has 41 wins and 9 losses.
The British boxer for the first time in his career will lead a significant boxing show. Ritson needs additional promotion before the battles against the top counterparts. Lewis spent 21 matches and won 20 fights. The only defeat he received from the Belgian Francesco Patera in 2018.
The Briton has fairly high-quality and mature boxing. Ritson gained some experience to enter the title fight. Lewis has won over Paul Hyland Jr., Robbie Davis Jr., and Scott Cardle.
The height of the British super-lightweight is 178 cm with an arm span of 180 cm. Ritson works well in the middle distance and can compete in the insider. Lewis can not be called a puncher, but his striking power is solid – 12 early wins.
The Mexican has long passed its peak but continues to earn by name. Each avenue wants to record a victory over the former world champion. Over the past 2.5 years, Vasquez will come to the UK for the third time. Apparently, Eddie Hearn will carry Miguel here until he is beaten by all the “youngsters”.
Vasquez’s only advantage over Ritson is experience. The Mexican had 51 fights and won 42 fights. But let’s make a reservation right away: Miguel’s significant victories were exclusively in the lightweight, where he was the champion.
It was at that weight that Vasquez beat Breidis Prescott, Ricardo Dominguez, Leonardo Zappavigna, Denis Shafikov, Mercito Gesta. Miguel already has 9 defeats (and within the framework of three weight categories), but from whom: Canelo Alvarez, Timothy Bradley, Mickey Bey, Josh Taylor, Batyrzhan Dzhukembaev.
The Mexican is not inferior to the British in size (height 178 cm with a span of 183 cm) but does not have a similar speed and striking power. Vasquez has a total of 16 knockouts. In the first stretches, Miguel can compete, but then fatigue will take up.
Lewis Ritson vs Miguel Vazquez Prediction
A major favorite opened Lewis Ritson. The 26-year-old Briton has been boxing for professionals since April 2015 and, soon, expects to get a title fight against Josh Taylor. Ritson was previously the British champion in lightweight (up to 61.2 kg) and the holder of the WBA Inter-Continental minor title.
The 33-year-old Mexican has boxed many times against British opponents and constantly opened with an underdog. In a professional ring, Vasquez made his debut in 2006. In the period from 2010 to 2014, Miguel was the IBF world champion in the lightweight category.
