Ovill McKenzie Vs Enzo Maccarinelli II - Fight Preview

Motorpoint Arena
United Kingdom

McKenzie celebrates controversial victory in 1st fight.
This coming Saturday evening live on Boxnation we have the rematch between former WBO Cruiserweight Champion Enzo Maccarinelli(32) 36-6-0 28Ko’s VS the current Commonwealth Champion Ovill McKenzie(33) 21-11-0 10Ko’s, in the previous meeting between both hard punchers (McKenzie) won a 2nd round controversial stoppage with some claiming the referee called a halt to the contest too quick after McKenzie had stunned Maccarinelli, although the stoppage seems “early” we have to try & view things with some wisdom & care.

In 2006 Maccarinelli won the WBO Cruiserweight Title before defending it on several occasions before a huge unification VS fellow British foe in David Haye, a fight with huge public interest and a split in opinion as to who would win. The fight lived up to its hype as Haye won by 2nd round knockout & since than Maccarinelli has gone 8-4 in his last 12 fights suffering devastating ko losses to Ola Afolabi, Denis Lebedev & Alexander Frenkel also a controversial stoppage loss to McKenzie, Enzo’s wins in between his losses have been VS low level opposition to say the least, but one thing we can guarantee is both Maccarinelli & McKenzie are both brutal puncher’s domestically and especially early in fights.

 Ovill McKenzie is a former Prizefighter winner & former British Champion his power has been evident in fights such as when he fought Tony Bellew, Ovill dropped Bellew twice before losing a 8th round TKO due to the nature of the stoppage a rematch was set and McKenzie lost on points in a very different fight from the first encounter since the Bellew fight McKenzie is 3-0 with 3Ko’s all inside 3 rounds.

This fight may not have the attention of every boxing fan but the British boxing public will be aware that this is a very intriguing fight with two tremendous puncher’s at the level they are competing at. Both men can punch but both can be beat & neither guy will shy away from a shoot out so this promises to be exciting. I expect a cagey few rounds before a fight breaks out I predict a win for Ovill McKenzie who I believe seems to have the better punch resistancy at this current stage in their careers. Don’t move don’t blink this is set to be a exciting shoot out between two excellent power punchers.
