This is a 10* on Ovince Saint Preux
Neither of these two veterans head into Wednesday in what you’d call “fine form.” The 38-year old Ben Rothwell (37-12) has dropped three of his previous four fights. Ovince St. Preux (24-13) is moving up a weight class after going just 2-2 his last four fights. Both are off a win though with Rothwell KO’ing Stefan Struve in December while St. Preux choked out Michael Oleksiejczuk back in September. Even with Rothwell having a significant weight advantage here, we like St. Preux to deliver in his move up to the heavyweight division. Rothwell has a nasty habit of absorbing far too much punishment, getting hit twice more than he delivers on significant strikes. Additionally, St Preux is the more skilled grappler and should be able to take Rothwell down with great regularity, even facing a weight disadvantage.
