Joshua Buatsi Form


Joshua Buatsi boasts a perfect 14-0 professional record with 12 of those victories coming via knockout.

The 28-year-old has been on a tear over the past couple of years, knocking out each of his last nine opponents.

In the second half of 2018 he reeled off three straight first-round finishes as he made quick work of Andrejs Pokumeiko, Tony Averlant and Renald Quinland.

Liam Conroy made it to the third round before Buatsi took him out, and Marco Antonio Periban was then dispatched in the fourth.

Ryan Ford became the first man to make it to the seventh against Buatsi before he was finally knocked out.

Marko Calic then gave the Ghanaian-born Brit the biggest test of his career before he too was KO’d in the seventh.

The last time Buatsi stepped into the ring, in May of this year, he stopped Daniel Dos Santos in the fourth.

Ricards Bolotniks Form


Ricards Bolotniks’ 18-5-1 record does not make for awe-inspiring reading at first glance.

However, the 31-year-old Latvian is enjoying the best run of form of his career so far, winning each of his last seven fights.

A run of four consecutive wins earned him a shot at ‘The Golden Contract’ tournament.

Bolotniks took his big chance with an impressive showing in the competition, which started with a first-round knockout of Steven Ward.

He then beat the experienced Hosea Burton via unanimous decision to seal a place in the final.

Bolotniks did not need the judges as he won the tournament and successfully retained his WBO European title.

The Latvian light-heavyweight stopped Serge Michel in the 10th round.

That was the eighth stoppage win of his professional career, with his other 10 coming via decision.

Of his five career losses, the last of which came in June 2018, three have been via knockout.
