Raymundo Beltran (last 6 fights) threw 13 fewer per round than wgt. class avg., but landed 40.7% of his power shots. He's not hard to find, as opponents landed 36.8% of their power punches.
Jose Pedraza's (last 5 fights) not busy either, but landed 43.5% of his power shots and 6.4 jabs per round, well above the wgt. class avg. Pedraza has an above avg. body attack, as 35.3% of his landed punches were body shots (Beltran 25.7%- CompuBox avg. 24.3%).
The stakes are high for WBO lightweight world champion Ray Beltran and challenger José "Sniper" Pedraza, with the winner expected to fight WBA lightweight champion Vasiliy Lomachenko later this year. (photos by Mikey Williams).
