Bruce Carrington vs Cesar Cantu: Records and Stats

‘Shu Shu’ Carrington has an amateur record of 44- 24, in which he has 1 KO. Despite his 11-year-long amateur career, the 24-year-old has never won a title. But his vast experience has called him to turn into a professional at the right time. Meanwhile, Cesar Cantu’s numbers are highly contrasting.

Per Box Rec, Cantu has had only 1 fight as an amateur which he lost via SD in 2017. He turned pro in the same year and made a successful debut via UD against Manuel Rubalcava. Subsequently, he had a two-year-long layoff before returning to beat Chante Bowens and Eddie Heines. ‘El Matrix’ couldn’t make it 4 in a row as he lost to Tyrese Cormier in June 2021.

The orthodox boxer will now welcome a debutant in Carrington, who has more amateur experience than him. Hence, two similarly styled fighters can produce a gruesome fight in a few hours.

Height, Reach, Physique and Prediction

Standing almost on a similar scale, both men can look eye-to-eye. Carrington stands at 5’8” and has a 72”. Cantu will head into the four-round fight with a one-inch height advantage and a two-inch reach disadvantage.

As Cantu and Carrington have only 1 KO each in all of their boxing careers (amateur+professional), it indicates that the fight is likely to go the distance, citing equal chances for both men. Nevertheless, Cantu’s broader experience in the professional chain can give him the edge.
