Diaz vs Rakhimov Prediction
Getting to Diaz vs Rakhimov’s Prediction, Diaz is having huge combating power. Demonstrated in his latest fight, Diaz suffered a huge cut on eyelids. Even though he never wanted to back his legs, he won through a UD. Comparatively, he is the one with less power in his hands as his Knockout percentage is less. Otherwise, he is always good at closing distance and a good starter also. Diaz is the standard fighter, but attacking him with great speed will make him unstable as with Russel.
Rakhimov is the younger one possessing an unbeaten record. Stepping the ring with the huge dream of claiming the world title. The man is highly conscious of landing the punches. In his IBF eliminator, he proved his repelling force. As two mangoes in one stone, Rakhimov is able to defend as well as attack simultaneously. Finally, about Diaz vs Rakhimov Predictions, if Rakhimov was not able to Knock out the Champion in early rounds, Diaz will win via Decision. Arguably, it feels like Diaz will cope with Rakhimov in the tough fight.
