Wednesday Night Fights: Pauldo vs. Madueno Predictions

Justin Pauldo vs. Miguel Madueno

Pauldo (17-1-0) is riding an 8 fight win streak and headlining against Miguel Madueno (29-2-0) this Wednesday in Plant City, Florida. Madueno is coming off a loss back in November of 2023. They both are in their 20s and only have a 1″ inch height difference.

I think the better boxer is Pauldo, he has good footwork, is fast for the division, and is still disciplined. Madueno on the other hand packs some power, is super tough, and is a good boxer himself. With that being said, I still see a Pauldo taking a decision win here after outboxing Madueno. He should control the distance for the win here.

Pick: Pauldo (Decision)

Najee Lopez vs. Marcos Escudero

The 23 year old prospect Lopez (9-0-0) is looking to make a statement in the co-main against Escudero (14-2-0). Both guys are knockout artists, with only one win a piece for either fighter being by decision. Escudero has a great style and loves to pressure with a stiff jab. Escudero comes to bang every fight and likes to make a brawl.

I think this pick is pretty easy, Lopez will most likely catch Escudero and put him out eventually. He is a very tough guy though, only having gone to decision once and finished once in round 9. Another interesting point is Lopez’s only decision victory is against a fellow Argentinian fighter.

I am going with Lopez by KO/TKO in the later 3 rounds!

Pick: Lopez (KO/TKO)

Tsendbaatar Erdenebat vs. Mohamed Soumaoro

Mongolian prospect Tsendbaatar Erdenebat (8-0-0) is taking on Mohamed Soumaoro (13-2-0) to attempt to extend his undefeated record by another impressive victory. Erdenebat previously had fought in the Olympics. Including a fight against Shakur Stevenson (21-0-0), where he would lose by UD. Since turning Pro, he has gone on a nice tear, racking up 8 wins in the process. Soumaoro on the other hand is coming off a TKO loss to Orestes Velazquez (8-1-0) but before that, he beat a few undefeated fighters here and there.

Some things to note are that Erdenebat is only 27 years old to Soumaoro’s 31. Soumaoro will also have a 3″ inch height advantage. I don’t believe it will matter to much as Erdenebat is the better boxer. I think he will use that skill to take home the decision win here.

Pick: Erdenebat (Decision)

Dwyke Flemmings Jr. vs. Rufino Lewis

Prospect Dwyke Flemmings Jr. (5-0-0) will be boxing Rufino Lewis (1-5-1) in what I feel will be a very one-sided fight. With all of Flemmings wins by knockout and Lewis being knocked out in 3 of his 5 losses. I think this is a given.

No need to explain here, Flemmings is also 10 years younger than Lewis. Lets go Flemmings Jr. by KO/KO

Pick: Flemmings Jr. (TKO)
