Undefeated light heavyweight Leon Bunn takes on Leon Harth for the IBF international light heavyweight championship of May 4, 2019, at the Fraport Arena in Frankfurt, Germany.

The 26-year old Bunn will be headlining the fight card in his hometown as Sauerland boxing returns to the Fraport Arena for the first time in seven years. Bunn is coming off a unanimous decision win over Viktor Polyakov last February 16th. Bunn has a record of 13-0 with 7 knockouts. This will be the first international title fight of any kind for the former German light heavyweight champion.

Countryman Leon Harth used to fight at cruiserweight but now returns to light heavyweight where he is undefeated. In his last two bouts, Harth has won the IBO continental and WBC Asia 175-pound titles in his last two bouts. Harth has a record of 18-3 with 12 knockouts. His only losses were against Murat Gassiev and Krzysztof Wlodarczyk, and world title challenger Artur Mann. If you need some tips before betting on boxing read them here.

Odds from bet365 as of 4/26/19

Harth could be Bunn’s biggest test yet as he has not been challenged in his fights. But while Harth may give him a challenge, I don’t see him beating Bunn. Harth has lost the big fights of his career and while he may be good, he isn’t elite. As for Bunn, he looked elite against low-level opposition. But after going 10 rounds with Serhiy Demchenko in July 2018 and winning the bout 9 rounds to 1, I’m convinced Bunn is a good pick over 10 rounds.

In his last bout, Bunn outboxed 2004 Olympian Viktor Polyakov last February in another display of his technical skills. That said, I think he’s the better boxer here. While I give Harth the slight edge in power, Leon Bunn beats him because of overall skill.

Anthony Yigit vs Sandro Hernandez

Swedish Yigit is making a quick return as he is coming off a February 16 decision win over Mohamed Khalladi. Before that, Yigit suffered his first career loss when he retired in the 7th round in his title challenge against Ivan Baranchyk in the WBSS super lightweight quarterfinals. Yigit is 24-1-1 with 7 knockouts. The 27-year old southpaw is 5-7 ½ tall.

Little is known of his opponent Sandro Hernandez. The 29-year old Venezuelan has a record of 15-7 with 10 knockouts. Hernandez went the distance with Sandor Martin whom Yingit easily dominated in a points win. Yigit should get the victory here as he is without question the much better boxer between the two. While Yigit may not be at world-beater level yet but he is in the middle class with Hernandez looking like a journeyman most of his career.

Prediction: Anthony Yigit

Abas Baraou vs Ali Funeka

Undefeated WBC international super welterweight champion Abass Baraou takes on former IBO welterweight titleholder Ali Funeka. Barau is 5-0 with 2 knockouts and stands 5-9 ½ with an undisclosed reach. He is coming off an impressive win over Carlos Molina last February.

Odds from bet365 as of 4/26/19

Funeka is a former world champion with a record of 39-10-3 with 31 knockouts. While he was a middle-level talent in his prime, Funeka is already 41 years old and has lost three straight bouts and four out of his last seven overall. I think Baraou outworks Funeka rather easily here given how the youngster outworked Molina who is in much better shape the Funeka. Baraou puts a fast pace and tires the old warrior here.

Prediction: Abas Baraou

Kem Ljungquist vs Dominik Musil

Former Danish amateur standout Ljungquist is a three-time national champion and two-time Nordic champion who has represented Denmark in both the European and World Championships. Ljungquist isn’t just a hard-hitter, he is a technically skilled big man who is good in finding openings and capitalizing on them with his power shots. The 28-year-old southpaw stands 6-6 ½ with an undisclosed reach. He has a record of 7-0 with 5 knockouts.

Odds from bet365 as of 4/26/19

His opponent is little known Dominic Musil from the Czech Republic. Musil is 28 years old and has a record of 3-1 with 2 knockouts. Musil is coming off the first loss of his career, an 8-round unanimous decision loss to unbeaten Albon Pervizaj of Germany. Both Ljungquist and Musil have proved to be heavy-hitters but the Danish boxer has the edge here because Musil isn’t as skilled technically. In his loss, Musil was shutout 80-72 in all scorecards. I expect Ljungquist to win this fight whether it goes the distance or not.

Prediction: Kem Ljungquist
