McDonnell By Decision v Solis

Boxing - Bantamweight - 04 Nov 19:00

We have the rematch of a fight that took place earlier this year, where McDonnell won a unanimous decision. Many people had Solis winning or a draw. The official scores were 116-112, 115-113, 117-11. By looking at the scores you wouldn’t appreciate what a difficult assignment it had been for McDonnell. I personally had him winning by a round or 2.

The reason I like McDonnell to win the rematch is that as tough as the first fight was, every judge had him winning. Two of them had him winning comfortably. He had struggled early in the contest, but I felt he had a handle on the fight in the last few rounds. The element of surprise is no longer there for Solis, who is nearing his 36th birthday. 35/36 in the bantamweight division is extremely old. I don’t see how Solis could do any better the second time around as he gave it everything he had in the first fight.
Neither fighter has been stopped in their respective careers. That’s 63 fights between them. Solis has a ko percentage of 35, whereas McDonnells is slightly higher at 41%, so another distance fight looks highly probable.

The first contest saw McDonnell uncharacteristically bashed up. It appeared that he couldn’t breathe out of his nose for much of the contest and may have damaged his hand. Neither fighter looks close to being stopped. McDonnell is a big bantamweight and will almost certainly move up after this fight. He’s been looking for the big fights and may have taken his eye off the ball in the first fight. I believe he will go into the rematch with a different mindset, looking to make it an easier nights’ work. The fight will again take place in Monte Carlo.

I've always maintained that Jamie is the most over looked and underrated fighter in the uk. He's defended his WBA world title 5 times on the spin and is unbeaten in almost 10 years. I see another unanimous decision in this one.
