Antonio Tarver v Lateef Kayode is probably not a fight that many people will get excited about and will probably go under the raider a little bit. But i think it has the making of a great fight and I'm happy that Boxnation have coverage of this encounter. The Veteran Tarver goes into this fight with wins in his last 2 fights, but 2 losses prior to that against Chad Dawson. It would seem that Tarver can no longer compete with the elite of the Light heavy and Cruiserweight division but still has a lot to offer. Having gone the distance in 9 of his last 11 matches Tarver is no stranger to grinding out a win and doing what it takes to get the judges decision. And i think this will have the same outcome.
Kayode is an unbeaten member of Freddie Roach's camp posing a 18-0 record and this will defiantly be his toughest test yet. I can see it going the distance only because Tarver has the experience to control the fight, but he will have to avoid Kayode as he has already confirmed he will be looking for the KO early on.
Tarver win by decision.
