Michael Conlan vs Karim Guerfi Analysis

Conlan is still on the comeback trail after getting stopped by Leigh Wood earlier this year in what was a potential Fight of the Year barnburner. The Belfast crowd will no doubt be in full voice for their favorite son ahead of this one, but with Conlan sitting as a -2500 favorite, where exactly does the betting value lie?

Conlan Looks To Dust Off Cobwebs Ahead Of A Big 2023

After a big build-up over the early part of his career which saw UFC star Conor McGregor lead him out in his debut at Madison Square Garden, it’s fair to say Michael Conlan’s career progression hasn’t exactly gone to plan as he returns home once again after his crushing world title loss against Leigh Wood in March.

Conlan floored Wood early in that contest and was up for the majority of the fight, but a combination of exhaustion and Leigh’s relentless attack was finally enough to overcome the Irishman as he was knocked out cold midway through the 12th round.

Late 2022 has seen a rebuilding phase for Conlan, looking excellent against a seasoned Miguel Marriaga back in August and he will look to stay that way as he looks ahead to a potentially huge 2023.

Guerfi Has His Own Fight of the Year Nominee

While Conlan and Wood stood out as one of the best fights over the last 12 months in boxing, Karim Guerfi had his own Fight of the Year candidate late last year with a nine-round brawl against Britain’s Jordan Gill. Guerfi hurt and dropped Gill in that fight before the Englishman roared back with a brutal knockout in round nine.

That’s been an issue for Guerfi across his career as a whole with four of his six losses coming via stoppage against opponents.

Michael Conlan vs Karim Guerfi Prediction

Karim Guerfi is a seasoned campaigner no question, but in front of a raucous Belfast home crowd and a fighter in Conlan who is the sharpest boxer he’s ever been in with, you’d have to favor Conlan to get the stoppage this weekend.

Scotland’s Lee McGregor absolutely starched Karim Guerfi inside a round with multiple knockdowns early last year, and while Conlan doesn’t quite carry McGregor’s power in fights, he’s the much more clinical boxer of the two and showed against both Wood and Marriaga that he carries enough pop to hurt opponents.

We’re taking the Michael Conlan to win by KO/TKO prop at -165 on Saturday to get to the window as the Irishman closes out the year in style with a stoppage win to set up a big 2023.
