Fedor Chudinov 6(5)-0 vs. KeAndrae Leatherwood 12(8)-2-1

Fedor is not nearly as active as his brother Dmitry, but he’s got a more impressive amount of KOs. This statistic should be tempered with the fact that has yet to fight any significant opposition.

Chudinov is no mere puncher. He had a distinguished amateur career with more than 170 wins, in addition to being a world amateur champion.

Leatherwood should be an excellent test for Chudinov. To date, the only opponents to have defeated him were undefeated prospects Hugo Centeno Jr and John Jackson. Both Centeno and Jackson were further up the development ladder when they faced off against Leatherwood.

The question, of course, is whether Leatherwood is too much of a step up for Chudinov.

Prediction: Chudinov by UD.
