My Pick

The 30-year-old Giyasov fights out of Brooklyn, New York and makes the ring walk with a perfect mark of 14-0 with 9 Ko’s. He turned pro in 2018 and has 70 rounds of experience under his belt since. Giyasov enjoyed a fine amateur career as he won the silver medal at the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil as a welterweight. He also won gold medals at the 2017 Asian, and World championship tournaments.

Giyasov stands just over 5-feet-9-inches tall with an unlisted reach and possesses pretty good power as his current knockout ratio clocks in at 64.3 per cent. He’s gone the distance in hos past three fights though after stopping eight of his previous nine opponents. Giyasov won the vacant IBF North American Welterweight Title in May, 2022 with a 10-round unanimous decision over Christian Gomez after decking him in the fourth, seventh and 10th rounds. He also has wins over Gabor Gorbics, Daniel Echeverria, Albert Mensah, Winston Campos, Emanuel Taylor and former world champion Darleys Perez.

Cano is now 34 years old and will climb through the ropes with a mark of 35-8-1 with 25 Ko’s. He made his pro debut back in 2006 as a teenager and has boxed 225 rounds since then. He measures 5-feet-7-inches tall with a reach of 71 inches so gives up 2.5-inches in height to Giyasov. Cano not really known as a knockout artist either but 71.4 per cent of his wins have come by stoppage including his last four victories. He’s 6-4 in his last 10 fights though and has been stopped four times in his career.

Danielito Zorrilla halted him in the second round in September, 2021 in a shot at the WBO NABO Super Lightweight Title.; Erik Morales stopped him after the 10th round in 2011 in a shot at the vacant WBC Super Lightweight Crown. Fernando Angulo stopped him in the ninth round in 2014 and Marcelino Nicolas Lopez halted him in two in October 2017. His other losses were by split decision to Paulie Malignaggi in a shot at the WBA Welterweight Title in 2012, a unanimous decision to Shane Mosley for the vacant WBC International Welterweight crown in 2013 as well as a 10-round split decision to Alan Sanchez in 2016 and a 10-round split decision to Fidel Maldonado Jr in 2017.

Cano has plenty of experience against top-class opposition, but has usually fallen just short when facing them. His biggest win came against former world champion Jorge Linares in 2019 when he caught him cold in the first round and stopped him in the first round. He also has wins over Roberto Ortiz, Mauricio Herrera, Jorge Silva, Ashley Theophane and Johan Perez. He stopped Perez after seven rounds in 2012 to win the interim WBA Super Lightweight Title and beat Ruslan Madiyev by a fifth-round technical decision in 2018 for the vacant WBC International Silver Super Lightweight Belt. Cano also fought a no-contest with Juan Carlos Abreu in 2015 and his lone draw was a four-round affair with Israel Ramirez in his third pro fight back in 2006.


Giyasov is certainly a fine boxer with good power while Cano is a harder hitter but has a questionable chin. Cano has plenty more pro experience against some of the top boxers of his era but he runs hot and cold and you just never know which version of Cano is going to show up. He certainly has a puncher’s chance in this fight but I don’t think he’s going to be able to outbox Giyasov. Both boxers should have their moments here, but I’m expecting Giyasov to leave the ring as the winner.

Giyasov is a better overall boxer.
