Staff Predictions | Ohara Davies vs. Jeff Ofori

Ohara Davies vs. Jeff Ofori

The final four in both the Super Lightweight and the Featherweight divisions will battle it out – Ohara Davies vs. Jeff Ofori and Tyrone McKenna vs. Mohamed Mimoune at 140lb, Tyrone McCullagh vs. Ryan Walsh and Leigh Wood vs. Jazza Dickens at 126lb.

A packed undercard sees some of the surrounding area’s hottest prospects in action, with Burim Ahmeti and William Hamilton making their professional bows while Elliot Whale and Inder Bassi Singh look to follow up promising debuts.

Davies drew out the golden ball at Tuesday’s draw and was swift to select the competition’s underdog Ofori as his opponent.

The Londoners had plenty to say to each other at a fractious weigh-in, where Hackney’s ‘Two Tanks’ clocked 9st 13lb 14oz at the second attempt to Tottenham fighter Ofori’s 9st 13lb 5oz.

With a huge right hand and new technical guidance from trainer Angel Fernandez, Davies is favourite to progress but Ofori has proven in his last two fights that he’s not a man to be underestimated.

Read on for Round By Round Boxing‘s staff predictions for Ohara Davis vs. Jeff Ofori and let us know who you think will win.

Ohara Davies vs. Jeff Ofori

Robert Contreras, Staff Writer

Excellent tournament format, with no easy path to the finals.

Ohara Davies can overpower a lot of men on his best day. Especially if they don’t make him work for it and considering how Jeff Ofori will be in his face, that will be to the underdog’s detriment.

Prediction: Davies by TKO

 

Hans Themistode, Staff Writer

Ohara Davies isn’t a world class fighter, but he’s a step above Jeff Ofori at the moment. Expect Davies to win on points.

Prediction: Davies by Decision

 

Alex Burgos, Editor-in-Chief

Ohara Davies can be hit or miss, but although he came in overweight for his fight against Jeff Ofori, I think he’s got the stuff to come out on top.

Ofori can play spoiler, but Davies picked him for a reason as he Ofori suits his style. Davies by decision.

Prediction: Davies by Decision
