Beibut Shumenov vs. Raphael Murphy: will the Kazakhstani boxer turn out to be better?

Beibut had a total of 20 professional fights and was defeated only twice. It should be noted that the fighter has never lost by knockout and is now in a series of four victories. In July 2018, he won the WBA Regular heavyweight title, defeating Hizni Altunkaya in nine rounds, forcing him to give up the fight.

Upcoming Predictions for Boxing

Raphael Murphy

Raphael is a 35-year-old American boxer who had only 15 fights in his professional career, 14 of which he won. However, let’s be honest and note that he managed to achieve such a record in confrontations with not the strongest opponents, and the upcoming match will be a serious test for him.

Note that Murphy, unlike his opponent, entered the ring in August last year, when he managed to beat Larry Pryor by unanimous decision of judges. It is worth saying that the American is in no way inferior by parameters to Beibut and even has almost the same arm span.
