THE LOWDOWN

Scotland’s John Docherty has recorded eight consecutive wins since turning professional in October 2018. Much is expected of Docherty after an impressive youth and amateur career and he has shown flashes of that potential in the early stages of his pro career with six of his eight wins coming inside of the opening two rounds.

Anthony Fox’s record of just eight wins from 24 professional bouts does not look good on paper but he comes into this contest having won each of his last three fights - all on points. All but one of his previous 24 fights have gone the distance so he could be a very awkward opponent for the highly-rated Docherty.

THE PREDICTION

John Docherty has demonstrated his power with six early stoppages in eight professional fights, but he may be forced to dig deep and go the distance against Anthony Fox in this contest. Fox is a durable fighter who has only been stopped once in his 24-fight career, so although the Scotsman certainly has the edge in terms or talent and power it will be difficult for him to end this one early as Fox is likely to prove to be a very dogged opponent.

Prediction: Docherty to win on points
