Whittaker vs Arenyeka Prediction: Both Made Their Debut Two Years Ago

Both fighters are at the very beginning of their careers and this bout is an outstanding opportunity to win a title and gain attention on a global level.

Benjamin Whittaker Preview

Ben Whittaker is an undefeated boxer with a record of 7-0, with 5 wins coming by knockout. After being subject to public influence and criticism from his father, Ben got into boxing as a teenager and quickly began to achieve success.

He had a fairly impressive amateur career and he fought for his country internationally. He won the bronze at the 2019 World Championships and then the silver medal at the postponed 2020 Tokyo Olympics.

Having won many local competitions and tournaments, Ben made his debut in the professional ring in 2022 against Greg O'Neil. After less than two years, he already has seven wins, which already makes him more active than most boxers.

Whittaker is renowned for his high striking technique, consistent cardio, and fight IQ, which allows him to outwork his opponents in the early rounds. If he fails to get a knockout, he outscores his opponents by a mile.

Will he continue his dominant run or fail for the first time? Continue reading below for our Whittaker vs Arenyeka prediction.

Eworitse Ezra Arenyeka Preview

Eworitse Ezra Arenyeka is a 28-year-old boxer from Nigeria but he currently resides in Cheshire, United Kingdom. He also doesn’t know the taste of defeat – his record is 12-0, with 10 wins coming by knockout.

Evoritze was born into a large poor family and he has 8 brothers and sisters. Since he was a small child, he was forced to work in hard physical labor to help feed his family. His father also died when Ezra was 7 years old.

He joined a boxing gym at the age of 9, which changed his life – he stopped fighting at school and skipping classes, and his academic performance also improved.

His amateur career is shrouded in mystery, so we will skip to his professional performance. Arenyeka also made his debut in 2022 but has already fought 12 times, which is quite impressive.

The difference is that his first seven wins were against fighters with negative records, and his last five were against fighters who barely qualify as average. Also, almost half of Arenyeka’s fights ended in rounds 1-3.

Based on his record, there is no doubt that this will be his biggest challenge, which is probably why he is such a massive underdog ahead of the fight. Ezra has good anthropometry, a huge arm span, solid cardio, and knockout power.

Our Ben Whittaker vs Ezra Arenyeka Prediction: This Should Be a Quick One

On paper, the fighters are similar in age, size, and power. And they are both Orthodox boxers. Their experience in the ring is not that far apart but there are some key points that we can make before we reach the Whittaker vs Arenyeka prediction.

Firstly, Whittaker fought fewer times but faced far tougher opponents. Secondly, Benjamin is a far more technical fighter and he already displays impressive fight IQ. Last but not least, all respected boxing sites rank Arenyeka far lower than Whittaker.

With the odds being one-sided, it is pointless to risk your money on a moneyline bet in favor of Whittaker. The two viable alternatives are the knockout and the under markets. We expect this fight to end within 4-5 rounds and when it ends, Arenyeka will no longer be unbeaten. But even in defeat, he will at least earn a considerable salary.
