Charles Martin v Gerald Washington (February 22)
The undercard for Saturday night’s huge world heavyweight title rematch between Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury features a title eliminator between Charles Martin and Gerald Washington that will see the winner become the mandatory challenger to Anthony Joshua’s IBF crown. Martin, of course, had an incredibly brief stint as IBF champion back in 2016, winning the vacant title in January of that year before surrendering it to Joshua just three months later, and since losing the belt he has fallen off the radar a little. The 33-year-old American has gone 4-1 in his last five fights though, and he should be able to dispatch Washington, who had a failed crack at unbeaten WBC champion Wilder back in February 2017 and has now gone 2-3 in his last five fights. The 37-year-old did manage a fine stoppage win over Robert Helenius last time out, but he will not be able to stand up to the power coming his way from Martin, who has stopped his opponent in 16 of his last 17 fights, with the other win coming via disqualification. His last six KO/TKO wins have come in the first six rounds, but only once has Washington been stopped inside six rounds and that was by those powerful hands of world champion Wilder. Therefore I expect the stoppage to come in the second half of the contest.
