Tszyu vs Creati Prediction: Getting Knocked Out on a Wednesday



Midweek boxing events are rare but always enjoyable and we have a solid card on Wednesday. Nikita Tszyu faces Danilo Creati in the main event in Sydney, Australia. Here is our Tszyu vs Creati prediction.

Tszyu vs Creati Prediction: Another Easy Outing for Tszyu?

Nikita Tszyu Preview

Nikita Tszyu is a 26-year-old Australian boxer nicknamed “The Butcher.” He is the brother of former world champion Tim Tszyu and the son of the legendary world champion Kostya Tszyu.

He had his first fight in the professional ring in 2022 and since then he has entered the ring eight times and won all fights, seven of which by knockout.

After his last fight with Dylan Biggs, he became the Australian super welterweight champion. He will defend this belt for the first time this week.

So far, Tszyu has lived up to his nickname and obliterated every single opponent he met in the ring. However, we should note that his management team is doing a perfect job at picking his opponents and he was never really faced with tough opposition.

This fight is no different. Danilo Creati is a good boxer but not good enough to present a challenge. On paper, it is easy to make a Tszyu vs Creati prediction but we have to look for better odds.

Danilo Creati Preview

Danilo Creati is a 34-year-old Italian boxer who lives in Australia. He has little experience in the professional ring for his considerable age.

He made his pro debut in August 2018 and had ten fights, in which he was able to win eight times. He has a single knockout on his name and his most recent fight against Marcus Heywood ended in a majority draw. This was only a month ago, so we doubt that he will be perfectly prepared for Tszyu.

Overall, the fact that Creati has a single knockout suggests that Nikita has an overwhelming advantage. Nevertheless, Tszyu has been on Creati's mind for a while now.

Back in the day, he spoke to Fox Sports and said that it was too early for him to call out Nikita. Now, after a couple of high-profile bouts against Michael Zerafa (lost via decision) and Marcus Heywood (draw), he feels that the time has come.

Nikita Tszyu vs Danilo Creati Prediction: Fast Knockout on the Horizon

This fight has been scheduled for ten rounds for the Australian super welterweight belt but we doubt that the fighters will spend more than half of that in the ring.

After all, Nikita Tszyu has fought only 28 rounds in his professional career. This makes for an average of just 3.5 rounds per match. His knockout power and speed will be a huge problem for Creati.

Moreover, Tszyu fights with the southpaw stance, which will also be troublesome for the orthodox Creati. The only problem in Nikita's boxing is the fact that he often rushes forward and forgets to defend his head. He got knocked out early in his last fight even though he won it in the end.

Nevertheless, we expect him to win here and this is the obvious Tszyu vs Creati prediction. The less obvious one is Under 7.5 rounds.
