Ben Rothwell is heading into the heavyweight bout here heavier and taller than his opponent. Rothwell is coming in at 6’4” and a whopping 265 pounds, which is 60 pounds heavier than his opponent. When it comes to the style Rothwell tends to use an Orthodox stance.
In this last five bouts Ben Rothwell has ended up having some issues. He has went 2-3 in the last 5 bouts. Granted, the last battle ended up being a KO/TKO win in the game. Outside of that the last win that Rothwell ended up picking up came all the way back in 2016. The win did allow Rothwell to improve to a 37-12 record.
Ovince Saint Preux is heading into the battle here with a Southpaw stance, which is different than what a lot of the fighters are providing so far. He is also coming in with a little bit of a small disadvantage of 6’3” and 205 pounds on the card. Saint Preux does have a slight reach advantage at 80 inches.
OSP has only went 2-3 in his last five bouts as well. Both of his wins, though, have come with submission type of wins and that is a different style than normal for the striker. However, the win in hislast bout allowed him to improve to a 24-13 mark in his career.
This is one battle that will not see the larger man win. Rothwell is the bigger fighter and while that will definitely help the fighter out in throwing his weight to the punches. The downside for Rothwell is the larger fighters tend to get gassed when going against smaller fighters and that will definitely help the battle tip towards Preux. Fight Night Winner, Ovince Saint Preux.
