Richardson Hitchins vs Gustavo Lemos Predictions

Hitchins is a sound technician that will try to outbox Lemos from range with straight shots up the middle. Hitchins will have his hands full in this one because Lemos is a relentless puncher with imposing physical strength.

Lemos fights under the ring moniker “El Electrico” and he might have enough voltage to turn out lights on the slickster from Hati. Hitchins heart and chin are relatively unproven and if he doesn’t have enough stamina to weather the storm he could get stopped.

Lemos has only been the 10-round distance once whereas Hitchins has been the 10-round distance 5x and 12-round route once. Despite Hitchins edge in deep waters Lemos’s withering body attack will wear out the stick and move artist down the stretch.

Hitchins vs Lemos Vegas Odds Analysis

Hitchins Moneyline -850

Lemos Moneyline +650

Hitchins via KO/ TKO/ Tech. +190

Hitchins via decision: -150

Lemos via KO/TKO/Tech. Dec/ DQ: +900

Lemos decision: +1200

Draw: +2000

Lemos is durable and has never been floored covering up well behind a high-guard. Despite his reputation as a crude brawler Lemos is cagey and sneaky quick with hard looping punches.

Hitchins is a decent puncher but he is content outpointing opponents with a safety first style behind his long jab. This is a 50/50 fight but Hitchins is the “A-Side” that will have the edge if he can manage to go the distance.

Lemos is worth taking a flier on at +650 but if the fight is close the decision will not go his way. Expect this fight to end up being a war with the contrasting styles creating the perfect storm. Bet Hitchins to take this one on the cards by a razor thin margin.
