The bout, will see Poland's current fringe contender Andrzej Wawrzyk (28-1, 14) taking on veteran war horse Frans Botha (48-10-3-1, 29).
Wawrzyk will be expected to win. Of course he will. At just 26 years old he is significantly younger than the 45 year old Botha however as shown against Aleksander Povetkin, Wawrzyk is light on paper and questionable in terms of durability. He's pretty talented in terms of raw ability but he does have those two, very questionable, aspects to his boxing.
Botha, of South Africa, failed in numerous world title attempts and has become a serial trial horse over the last few years. He has won just one of his last 8 contests and has been beaten by successive promising fighters including the exceptional Joseph Parker.
The one thing Botha has is power, though at his age and with his reactions and general speed, which was never great, diminishing it'd be a shock to see him catch the Polish fighter with anything of note.
Despite the fact this bout looks like a mismatch it'll be interest to compare Wawrzyk's performance against that of Parker who stopped Botha in 2 rounds last June.
