My Pick

The 34-year-old Tabiti fights out of Las Vegas and has racked up an impressive record of 20-2 with 16 Ko’s. Tabiti reportedly went 32-6 as an amateur and was a semi finalist in the 2010 National Golden Gloves and reached the 2011 USA National Championship Final. He’s fought 96 rounds since turning pro back in 2013 and has captured the USBA and NABF Cruiserweight Titles along the way. He stands 6-feet-1-inch tall and has a 76.5 inch reach and will be fighting as a heavyweight for just the third time.

Tabiti has a pair of heavy fists as 80 per cent of his wins have come by stoppage including his last three. His list of opponents include a few boxers most fans will recognize such as Lateef Kayode, Keith Tapia and Steve Cunningham. Tabiti is of Nigerian descent and is well known for his fast hands. He hasn’t been very active since his 2019 loss to Dorticos as this is just his fifth fight since and he’s gone 3-1 in that span.

As for Wright, he’s now 37 years old and will climb through the ropes with a mark of 20-5-1 with 17 Ko’s. He measures 6-feet-tall with a 74-inch reach which means he gives up an inch in height to Tabiti as well as 2.5-inches in reach. He made his pro debut in 2011 following a pretty good amateur which saw him reach the 2009 USA National Golden Gloves quarterfinals and win the Chicago Golden Gloves three times. He also carries considerable power in his punches as 85 per cent of his wins have come by stoppage, including his last six.

Wright’s first defeat came at the hands of Rakhim Chachkiev in 2015 when he was stopped in the eighth round in a shot at the vacant IBO Cruiserweight Title. He had a shot at the vacant WBA Cruiserweight Title 12 months later but was halted in the 10th round by Beibut Shumenov. Just two fights later he dropped a 12-round unanimous decision to Ruslan Fayfer and in December, 2021 he was stopped in the second round by Joe Jones for his fourth loss in nine fights.

He bounced back with a third-round KO over Colby Madison and a first-round KO over Brian Howard before being stopped by Makhmudov six months ago. The lone draw on Wright’s record is a 10-round affair in 2014 against Stivens Bujaj for the vacant WBC International Cruiserweight Title. The biggest wins in his career have been against Galen Brown, Marlon Hayes, Madison and Howard but just 14 of his 25 opponents have headed into the ring with a winning record.


This bout features two hard-hitting heavyweights and if it ends up in a slugfest then I’d favour Tabiti as he has a better chin. Tabiti also has size, speed, agility, defence and skills on his side if it should go the distance.

Tabiti’s power, chin and skills should decide it.
