Craig Baker Talks About Facing Oleksandr Gvozdyk – This Saturday evening on ESPN, light heavyweight contender Craig Baker (17-1) faces the undefeated NABF champion Oleksandr Gvozdyk (13-0) in support of the Terence Crawford vs Julius Indongo main event.
This is certainly a step-up fight for Baker who enters the fight as a wide underdog. In Gvozdyk, he is facing a Ukrainian who has been fast tracking his professional career after amassing a vast amateur background. Gvozdyk is from the same training group that has already given us cruiserweight world champion Oleksandr Usyk and super featherweight champion Vasyl Lomachenko, so Gvozdyk is very confident in his pedigree. Baker feels he is ready to match-up and put on display what he has in way of technique. We will find out Saturday night.
