Martin Must Make This a Dogfight

Both Martin and Rivera are special in their own way. But grit is Martin’s edge over Rivera. This is not to say that Rivera cannot “tough it out,” but Martin can excel when he makes this fight ugly. The Indianapolis fighter is the smaller man here and will give up three inches of reach.

But as far as stature, Martin has that muscular and stocky build. That can benefit him as it may be akin to moving a fire hydrant when he’s up close in boxers’ faces. He’s won three of his last four fights by KO. The only man he did not finish, Ryan Kielczweski, is a tough veteran. And he won this bout via a unanimous shutout.

Martin, who hangs around boxing champions like Errol Spence Jr. and Jermell Charlo, could be the next big thing in the division. He’s stated he’s willing to make the risk to be great. A fighter of this skill and bravado is worth betting on online.

Rivera Will Test Chin Against Martin

Not to be outdone, Rivera can make a statement by knocking out Martin. That is a tall task as the Dominican has not finished his last three opponents. But there is a lot going on for him. For one, he is the longer boxer and for another, he’s consistently fought tougher competition.

Rivera’s test will be to see if he can get in the trenches and beat Martin. As the underdog, the online gambling lines indicate he won’t be quite as successful. Martin does his best work when he is picking apart other boxers from within range.

This isn’t to suggest that he can’t fight in Martin’s close range. Martin gets hit quite often and Rivera has the power to hurt the favorite. But to do that, Rivera will have to wade through fire.

Rivera vs Martin Head-to-Head

Other than the reach, the biggest disparity here is the fight stances. Rivera boxes orthodox while Martin is a southpaw. The underdog is also three years younger than Martin even if he has eight more professional bouts.
