THREE big fights are coming up this weekend; Andre Ward vs Sullivan Barrera, Nick Blackwell vs Chris Eubank Jr and Kell Brook vs Kevin Bizier. So we asked our readers how they saw them going.
An overwhelming 87% picked Chris Eubank Jnr to beat Nick Blackwell in their British middleweight title at Wembley Arena. 52% though Eubank’s victory would come by way of stoppage.
Kell Brook is an even bigger favourite in his IBF welterweight title fight against Kevin Bizier in Sheffield. 95% of our readers tipped Brook to win, with 73% believing he would collect an inside the distance victory.
92% picked Andre Ward to beat Sullivan Barrera, though 61% thought Ward would have to content himself with an inside the distance victory.
Through these surveys it seems Blackwell-Eubank is, just about, the most competitive headlining fight of the weekend, even if only 13% picked Blackwell to win in the survey.
