Joe Smith Jr. vs. Arthur Beterbiev Prediction: Can We Bank on Beterbiev to End Joe Smith Jr. Early?

This Saturday night Arthur Beterbiev will put his gold and beautiful boxing lineage on the line against the coal mining colossus, Joe Smith Jr. Mr. Bully Beatdown Beterbiev is perhaps best remembered for possessing a literal 100 percent knockout ratio and being ethnically ambiguous to the casual audience. Joe Smith's claim to fame was dog walking the legendary Bernard Hopkins after the man had infamously made a clown of himself during the presser before the bout. Both have a piece of the light heavyweight pie, with Arthur holding the IBF and WBC title, a feat ever so impressive if not being compared or overshadowed by Joe's illustrious WBO belt and then some in the grander scheme of things.

"The Common Man" will look to make Beterbiev the common bum in the squared circle, utilizing his lanky frame and quirky boxing demeanor to lul Arthur into a sense of security and then pounce on his carcass when he is inevitably at his most vulnerable. "Beast Boy" Betterbiev will do what he has always done: Throw bombastic flailing hooks until the bout is stopped and Joe is rushed to the infirmary or the morgue. Now, who wins over the weekend at the Hulu Theatre when it's all said and done. Betterbiev is going into this contest at 37, but I believe he is still at the peak of his prime in terms of punching power and ferocity.

The fact of the matter is Arthur is just built differently, and if all things go according to plan he is going to show his abnormal super genes come Saturday Night. Joe Smith Jr. has had a Rocky-Esque Cinderella story in shedding his blue-collar regiment into defending world champion, but you're going to need something a little extra than just being common in order to halt the Godzilla of light heavyweight.
