  • Carlos Adames -800

My Pick

The 30-year-old Adames now fights out of Las Vegas and carries around a record of 23-1 with 18 Ko’s. He’s boxed 115 rounds since making his pro debut in 2015 following a fine amateur career. He competed at the 2013 World Amateur Championships, won a gold medal at the 2012 Pan American Youth Championships, reached the quarterfinals of the 2012 World Youth Championships and won a bronze medal at the 2013 Pan American Championships.

Since turning pro he’s also captured the WBA Fedecaribe, and WBA Fedelatin Welterweight Titles, the NABF, and WBO NABO Super Welterweight Crowns. His lone loss came to Patrick Teixeira via a unanimous decision in November, 2019 in a shot at the interim WBO Super Welterweight Title and was dropped in the seventh round along the way.

Adames hasn’t too many other top level boxers up to now other than Teixeira and Williams but he did edge Sergiy Derevyanchenko via a 10-round majority decision in December, 2021 and also has wins over Patrick Day, Frank Galarza and Joshua Conley. He stands 5-feet-11-inches tall with a 73-inch reach and has very good power in his punches as 78.3 per cent of his wins have come by stoppage including seven of his last nine victories.

The 36-year-old Gausha enjoyed a fine amateur career and represented the USA at the 2012 Olympic Games in London, England. He’s a former Golden Gloves and National Champion but was eliminated at the Olympics after two bouts. Gausha will climb through the ropes with a mark of 24-3-1 with 12 Ko’s. He stands 5-feet-10-inches tall with a 73.5-inch reach which sees him give up an inch in height to Adames. He’s probably best known for his 2022 fight against Tim Tszyu for the WBO Global Super Welterweight Title in which he lost by scores of 114-113, 115-112 and 116-111.

Gausha turned pro back in 2012 after the Olympics and has boxed 177 rounds since. His first loss came to Erislandy Lara by unanimous decision in October, 2017 in a shot at the WBA and IBO World Super Welterweight Belts and his second defeat came at the hands of Erickson Lubin via a 12-round unanimous decision in September, 2020. That entertaining tilt was for the vacant WBC Silver Super Welterweight Title and his lone draw was a 10-round affair with Austin Trout in 2019.

Gausha’s biggest wins have come against Charles Whittaker, Luis Grajeda, Joey Hernandez, Luis Hernandez and Eliezer Gonzalez. He doesn’t really have much one-punch power in his fists as half of his wins have come by knockout and he’s gone the distance in seven of his past 10 fights. His power shouldn’t be taken lightly though, especially when combined with his speed. Gausha has a pretty good chin and boxing skills and proved it once again against Tszyu.


Adames is a solid boxer with good skills and plenty of power while Gausha has fine skills but lacks power. I’m expecting Gausha to keep things pretty close for several rounds and may even last the distance but I think Adames will eventually wear him down towards the end of the fight and hold onto his title.

Adames combines skill and power.
