Saturday Fight Night Preview: Cash-in on Cadman

Robin Reid v Daniel Cadman

In a supporting fight for the Frampton main event sees two former prize-fighter contestants Daniel Cadman face former WBC world Super middleweight champion Robin Reid.

It’s fair to say Reid has seen better days and he actually retired back in 2007 when Carl Froch pummelled him to defeat. However he returned to action last year to launch an unsuccessful attempt at winning the super middleweight prize-fighter, when Tobias Webb easy defeated him in his opening bout.

Reid is dreaming about taking on Degale or Groves in a mega fight later on in the year, but I think the 40-year-old has taken too many shots to the head. Quite frankly, he was a finished fighter seven years ago and unfortunately he is like many fighters in boxing they just can’t let go of the dream.

Tonight he is facing a fighter who in his heyday he would have routed quite convincingly. But things are different now and and but at the age of 40, Cadman will provide him with stern opposition.

I watched Cadman’s (14-6) 2010 crack at prize-fighter in 2010 and he showed some classy combinations. He has plenty of heart for a 40-year-old but sometimes get caught on the chin a little too easily.

But providing he is isn’t in a Journeyman mindset I feel he is a decent price at 6/4 in what is a coin toss clash.
Daily Sport recommended bet:

4pts Cadman to beat Reid – 6/4 Betfred


Erick Ochieng v Nick Quigley

In what promises to be a small hall cracker, the chief support on the Sky Sport’s bill sees  Eric “the Eagle” Ochieng (8-1 2kos) attempt to continue his fine run of form against the entertaining Nick Quigley.

Ochieng surfaced on my radar when he out-hustled the undefeated Liam Cameron. He he is an impressive looking specimen who is most happiest when he is sitting back on the ropes and pick off his opponent.

However, he is up against a very smart boxer in Quigley who showed himself to be a very decent in prize-fighter when he looked set to sweep past the opposition with ease until he turning up in the final looking exhausted and running into a decent champion in the shape of Robert Lloyd Taylor

Quigley backers may well be be concerned with the way he run out of gas in that comp. But he is from a decent fighting family who I am sure I’m sure will have solved the small gas tank concerns.

I expect Quigley to start fast and try and hit Ochieng with his full repertoire whilst “the Eagle” will look to counter and fight smart.

Due to Quigley’s lack of power he needs to fight for every round and can see him running into an early lead and at 2/1 he looks fair value to stay in front and shock Ochieng fans.

Daily Sport recommended bet:

5pts Quigley to beat Ochieng – 2/1 Betfred


Cory Spinks v Sechew Powell

In an untelevised light middleweight IBF eliminator, Cory Spinks faces Sechew Powell and the latter is fancied to come out on top.

Spinks who has a look of a fighter at the end of the road and Powell is a good decent contender who I think has enough about him to beat Spinks with a bit to spare

Daily Sport recommended bet:

3pts Under 7.5 rounds – 9/4 bet365
