BBBofC English middleweight title
Danny Butler 21(6)-5 vs. Cello Renda 22(11)-9-1
Both these fighter’s may have reached the ceiling for their potential. Butler has clearly been beat by Bradley Pryce and Darren Barker. Renda, for his part, has lost to Paul Samuels and Paul Smith.
But this fight is still worth tuning into — and a big reason for this is that, despite neither man being world beaters, they still come to fight.
In his last 2 fights, Butler has defeated Thomas Costello and Frankie Borg — two up-and-comers with undefeated records. In fact, 3 of his last 4 fights have been won by KO.
Meanwhile, Renda is on a 4 fight win streak. Even in his last two losses to Paul Samuels, he had good showing. He knocked Samuels down once in Round 1, and twice in Round 2 — before being stopped himself due to an eye injury. He then fought valiantly in the rematch but ultimately lost to decision.
So while neither of these guys probably have title contention in the cards, you at least know that a good fight is to be had.
Prediction: Butler by UD.
