The WBC silver super welterweight title being on the line signifies why this fight is sure to be a spectacle. Yet, a potential ascension into stardom is also in store for one of these warriors.

Hollywood Fight Nights: Walsh vs Yeleussinov Prediction

Callum Walsh Preview

Callum “King” Walsh — an Irish boxer with an undefeated 9-0 professional record, which includes seven KO victories — is one of the best boxing prospects we've seen come out of the “Emerald Isle” in some time. 

What's most impressive about Walsh is his knockout power. Walsh has not only knocked out his opponents in 78% of his fights — including a dominant victory over Juan Jose Velasco in August 2023 — but every single one of them has come in the fourth round or earlier. 

When watching Walsh fight, it's easy to see why he manages to dispatch opponents so frequently.

The 23-year-old Irishman is adept at mixing up his punches to both the head and body, and employs excellent footwork to ensure that he never gets caught with something. 

Our Walsh vs Yeleussinov prediction is that “King” will be dancing around the ring on Friday, selecting his shots until he finds the perfect home for his hands to land. 

Dauren Yeleussinov Preview

While Dauren Yeleussinov — a boxer from Kazakhstan with an 11-3-1 record, which includes 10 KO victories — faces an uphill battle on Friday, there is no doubt that he possesses enough power to produce a shocking upset victory. 

Our Callum Walsh vs Dauren Yeleussinov prediction is that Yeleussinov will be seeking a one-punch knockout throughout the entire fight.

He will likely have no issues with allowing Walsh to dance around the ring, out-landing him in terms of volume, all in order to set up one punch that can secure Yeleussinov the win. 

This will be a tough game plan for Yeleussinov to pull off. Yet, if the 37-year-old fighter can capitalize on his opponent's prospect status and secure the biggest win of his career, the boxing community will remember his name. 

Callum Walsh vs Dauren Yeleussinov: Walsh With a Statement Win

Our official Walsh vs Yeleussinov prediction is that Callum Walsh will win by KO.

After being tested in his last fight, we believe Walsh will display everything that he has learned this weekend, and look spectacular against Yeleussinov. Considering his knockout resume, we think Walsh by KO — currently available at -400 — is a great bet to place. 

And given that every one of Walsh's knockouts has arrived in the fourth round or earlier, taking the Under 5.5 rounds — currently available at -120 — is also worth your while. 

Can Callum Walsh show the world once again why he's the next great boxer to come out of Ireland? We certainly believe so.
