Kholmatov Analysis: He’s a strong powerful fighter

Kholmatov has earned all of his victories as a professional by winning almost every bout through knockout, stopping all but one opponent within four rounds. Due to this incredible run of performances, he has quickly established himself as one of the premier featherweight contenders. His height and reach is 5′ 7″, or 170 cm. Kholmatov employs the traditional orthodox stance when fighting, using his right hand as his power hand.  A powerful puncher with superior defensive capabilities, his opponents must respect him due to his strength as an opponent defender and powerful puncher.


Ford Analysis: Only 1 draw in professional boxing

Raymond Ford has also proven his mettle as a professional. Hailing from Camden, New Jersey and an impressive two-time national Golden Gloves titleholder prior to making his professional debut in 2019. Since that fight, when he drew with Aaron Perez unbeaten, Ford has won all 6 fights, most recently defeating Jessie Magdaleno via unanimous decision. The lone stain on Ford’s record is a split 8-round draw with the relatively unknown Aaron Perez. The negative aspect for the American is that Perez managed to force him into punching exchanges by breaking the ring. In those instances, Ford appeared uneasy. Ford may have underestimated Perez and fought to the level of the adversary that evening, but there are red flags before a fight with Kholmatov.
