Shavkatdzhon Rakhimov UD12

Champion97's picture

Prediction.

Diaz is more experienced than Rakhimov, Rakhimov comes off a longer layoff. I think Rakhimov hits harder than Diaz, but Diaz hits fairly hard, and Rakhimov has a relatively weak chin. I don't think Rakhimov's style is dissimilar to Diaz's, he has a decent amateur background, good technique, has good shot selection, but can fight on the inside, Diaz could potentially do a better job of implementing his game plan because he's fought at a higher level, but he's not prepared or disciplined based on missing the weight. Diaz has a great chin, I haven't seen him hurt in the ring, but Rakhimov has a size advantage, hits hard, might hit harder than any of Diaz's previous opponents, it will be interesting to see if Rakhimov can hurt him, especially to the body, and how Diaz responds if Rakhimov does hurt him. I think Diaz is defensively better than Rakhimov, Rakhimov has a solid guard, but he's an easy target apart from that, Diaz is a solid combination puncher, and I don't think he'll struggle to land when he'sin range. Rakhimov should be the stronger fighter, it will be interesting to see if that's a factor, and if he can back Diaz up, how much that takes away from Diaz's game plan.

I think Rakhimov will take centre ring, get behind his jab, Diaz will see his shots coming, land some counters, but he'll struggle to get into range, and Rakhimov will be ahead after 4 rounds. I think it will be more of an inside fight in the mid rounds, Rakhimov will have success, use his own footwork to position his shots, will be varied, Diaz will be more accurate, hurt Rakhimov, but will struggle to build on it, and Rakhimov will have lot more in the tank than Diaz in the late rounds.

I think Rakhimov wins a UD.

Gold's picture

Do you think it's possible Diaz looked like he improved significantly because Farmer isn't at the level of someone like Russell?

Champion97's picture

Definitely possible, I took that into account when I wrote my analysis, Russell is offensively better than Farmer and has more skills, and as I said, I wasn't particularly impressed by Diaz in any of his fights between Russell and Farmer, but I thought he was better tactically and defensively against Farmer than Russell, he moved away from Farmer's shots as they came, but wasn't affected by Farmer's speed, was consistent with his pressure. In my opinion, Russell isn't underrated, I won't say overrated because he doesn't get much recognition, but he fought Lomachenko in his third fight, lost fairly wide, I think there's a lot a good fighter can exploit, and experience was the main factor when he beat Diaz. What do you think?

Gold's picture

I picked Rakhimov to win but I'm not very sure about it. I think Diaz is a good fighter but I think Farmer did make him look better than he is because Farmer didn't have the offensive ability or power to push Diaz. If the fight ends up with a good amount of trading on the inside I think that could benefit Rakhimov who is a naturally bigger, stronger, and more powerful fighter which is why I picked him. I could be wrong and the factors you outlined in favor of Diaz could end up winning him the fight. As I said, the Golden Boy card is intriguing, I will definitely be prioritizing it but there are a lot of good options this weekend.

Champion97's picture

I expected Farmer to have the speed, reflexes, movement to beat Diaz, I thought Diaz would be an easier target than he was, but Diaz was more accurate, fought the smarter fight. He has a size advantage, and I agree he hits harder, but do you not think his chin and lack of head and upper body movement are likely to cost him? Diaz is a solid inside fighter, is more resilient than Rakhimov, I don't think Rakhimov's size advantage is enough.

No doubt man, at least 5 solid fights between the 2 cards, and Jared Anderson is fighting on the Top Rank undercard.

I forgot to respond when you posted it, but how good a shot would you give Smith against Beterbiev?

Gold's picture

I think those are weaknesses Diaz could potentially exploit but I think it is more likely it will wear Diaz down to try to trade with Rakhimov than vice versa. Diaz started as a 122 and fought for a title at 126, Rakhimov has been a 130 his entire career. I haven't watched a lot of Rakhimov though so I could be wrong about what factors will play out.

I also thought Rios vs. Negrete is a good fight and there are some good prospects on the cards. I think Ibeh is a step in the right direction for trying to develop Anderson.

Maybe like a 30% chance? It's not that Smith is particularly good overall, there is a big gap between their actual boxing abilities too. Smith seems to match up well against Beterbiev because he's not likely to be run over due to Beterbiev's strength, he's tough with a good chin, and he obviously is a really big puncher and Beterbiev has a questionable chin. It may be a difference of who can take the punches better, but Beterbiev may be too technical for Smith. Beterbiev's injury history and miles are at the point where they may start to show up too but that's hard to predict.

Champion97's picture

I definitely disagree on that, I think Diaz is better at close and mid range, but I think Rakhimov will be competitive. Good point, I think size will be a factor, but I don't think it will be enough. Rakhimov has solid punch selection, I think he'll hit Diaz with a harder and more accurate single, isolated shot than he's been hit with before, he has good blocking abilities, Diaz will need to throw combinations, and I think Rakhimov will use his reach well enough to give Diaz problems in the early rounds, but I'd be surprised if he outlasted Diaz in the pocket, he's been down 3 times, Diaz hasn't been down, and Diaz moves his head and upper body more than Rakhimov.

Anderson might the heavyweight prospect I'm most impressed by, I don't know much about Ibeh or how much of a step up he is, but Anderson is very young, especially for a heavyweight, and I think prospects who have got time to learn, can benefit from just keeping busy, but they definitely seem to struggle more with inactivity than experienced fighters.

I didn't see Smith against Alvarez, but based on what I've seen of him, I'd give him less of a chance than 30%, Beterbiev isn't dissimilar to Povetkin in my opinion, doesn't look spectacular when he fights, but he's very effective, is offensively brilliant, has a lot of power in both hands, has a solid amateur background, but has adapted well to the professionals. Beterbiev doesn't have a granite chin, but based on how well he took Gvozdyk's power, his chin can't be relied on as something to exploit. Smith is durable, his defence has improved based on the Hart fight, but I don't think Beterbiev would struggle to hit him, I could see him holding up in the early rounds, but not in the second half, I think Beterbiev would have more and more momentum down the stretch. I don't think he has enough miles to age quickly, both times he's been down were isolated knock downs, in fights he did most of the damage in, but if he's injury prone, that will only get worse. Do you think any light heavyweight beats Beterbiev? I personally don't.

Gold's picture

As I said, I'm not very familiar with Rakhimov so I could be wrong in my analysis, I just see a potential upset. Diaz isn't a bad puncher but he isn't a factor as a puncher so I'm not sure Rakhimov's chin will be relevant in the fight. I agree with your factors for Diaz to win though.

I don't think Ibeh is a big step up but it's moving him in the right direction, not a totally awful heavyweight and they can keep him busy.

Shame Smith vs. Vlasov is off, hopefully it will be rescheduled soon. I think Gvozdyk wasn't able to sit down on his punches, he didn't want to trade with Beterbiev knowing his power. Callum Johnson got KOd doing it but he put Beterbiev down. I thought Smith looked good in the Alvarez fight, he fought to his strengths and sparked Alvarez out, but Alvarez looked poor in the fight so I don't know what to make of it. I should have said age rather than miles exclusively, he's getting older, had a long amateur career and has had multiple injuries to delay his current fight. I would favor Beterbiev versus the field at the moment but I wouldn't be very confident in it, it may not be an issue but he could drop off and someone with the right style could give him issues. Theoretically I think Bivol could but I think Beterbiev is more versatile offensively, stronger, and more filled out at the weight. Do you think Canelo could beat Beterbiev? That may be a more interesting question.

Champion97's picture

He hits harder in my opinion than the opponents who have knocked Rakhimov down in the past in my opinion.

It's hard to predict, there are levels to covid, Campbell tested positive and the Garcia fight was only delayed a month, Povetkin did and the Whyte rematch was postponed for 4 months. I agree, that can be seen as an issue with Gvozdyk, but that's also a testament to Beterbiev's power. That's a fact, but what does that fight say about his powers of recovery? Same as against Page Jr. True he's old, but how much an aspect of miles is there from a long amateur career? If it's much of a factor, Povetkin and Rigondeaux must have had a lot of miles when they turned pro, look how well they've both aged, Beterbiev seems to live the life as well, I could see Beterbiev potentially having another good few years even as he slowly declines. I agree on the Beterbiev and Bivol comparison. Good question, I think he would beat Beterbiev, but Beterbiev has a better shot than any other fighter at 160-175. What do you think?

Gold's picture

Do you think he's developed since those knockdowns? They were some time ago right?

Yeah it is a testament to Beterbiev's power but I don't believe Joe Smith would have the same issue, he would try to land his shot knowing that's his best chance of winning. Bivol's style was awful for him and Smith didn't set his shots up as well as he did versus Hart and Alvarez so he couldn't set the shot up. I rate Callum Johnson as a decent contender at the weight but Page wasn't, I don't think either of them really had the ability to push Beterbiev, but of course the same could be argued about Smith. That's why I said it's difficult to predict when guys will slow down, I think it's not just about number of fights but also sparring and training which can vary from place to place. I don't know the details but I know it is and was very competitive for the spots on the Russian teams. I definitely believe Beterbiev lives the lifestyle but he's 35, that seems to be when many guys start to leave their peak ability now a days. I agree that Beterbiev has the best chance versus Canelo because he is naturally much bigger and has good offensive technique, but I would pick Canelo because his defense, countering, and ring IQ are so good now. Versus Beterbiev there would be a significant gap in handspeed as well in favor of Canelo.

Yes, based on the Fuzile fight, he has developed since the Paypa fight, they were a while ago, I think he will go past 8 rounds, will give Diaz problems, and Diaz will take time to start doing damage.

I agree from what I've seen of Smith, but I think Smith would be an easier target even with his improved defence. I can see your argument, fighting Beterviev in the pocket definitely makes it easier to exploit his weaknesses, but you obviously open yourself up for more damage, Beterbiev has power in both hands, has great variety, and accuracy, how long can Smith absorb that? And that's if he even holds up well in the early rounds. I agree with that, Barrera and Bivol's styles were bad for him, I'd give him less of a shot against a fighter as good as Beterbiev who uses the ring and boxes on the outside, he dealt with Hart's movement better, but from what I remember, that was also about Hart's inconsistency. I don't either, so Kovalev and Povetkin aren't bad measuring sticks, especially Povetkin, but that seems speculative to me, I don't see any reason Beterbiev should age faster than Golovkin or Korobov, I think those are good example because they'll have been brought up a similar way. He'll decline in the next few years, but I doubt he will decline fast enough for any light heavyweight apart from Bivol to take advantage enough to beat him.

I agree on Beterbiev vs Canelo, I think like Kovalev, Beterbiev can hurt Canelo, but Canelo is defensively brilliant, is very methodical and calm in the pocket, builds his defence into his offence, doesn't rely on power, and is able to bully a bigger opponent as he has in his last 2 fights. It's interesting to compare the Kovalev fight to the Beterbiev fight, Beterbiev wouldn't be able to delay Canelo at long range like Kovalev did, would be more of a target, but he has more variety than Kovalev, a better gas tank, and is more durable, Canelo wouldn't have the issue of having to cut distance against Beterbiev, but he would have to do more to break Beterviev down, and Beterbiev's athleticism relative to Kovalev would not only allow him to be stronger in the late rounds, but he could throw as many shots as Kovalev without having to hold back his power.

Did you see Akhmedov vs Gongora? If not, I recommend it, it was a very good fight, I was very impressed by Gongora and I'd be interested to get your thoughts on him.

Sounds like Jojo is losing his title to the scales no matter what. Almost 4lbs over, and seemingly not attempting to make weight tonight.

Very unprofessional, I'll change my prediction for the fight, he's not big for the weight, Diaz might not have had to drag himself through the ordeal of trying to make weight, but if Rakhimov isn't drained, that will still favour Rakhimov.

Poor performance from Diaz, he did well to finish strong, but I think he would have been a lot more dominant in the late rounds, had he been at his best, his pressure would have been more consistent, his output would have been higher, and he'd have been more resilient. Rakhimov boxed well, and hurt Diaz a couple of times, but I didn't think he had the right game plan, he moved excessively, let Diaz rest, didn't use his size, and he didn't do much to build on it when he hurt Diaz, but this was a great learning fight for Rakhimov.
