Gutierrez-Colbert: a clash of styles for the WBA super featherweight championship

Everything is ready for Las Vegas to witness the clash between the super featherweight world champion, Roger Gutierrez, and his official challenger, Chris Colbert. On February 26, they will face each other at the Cosmopolitan in a stylistic confrontation that makes the fight very interesting. 

Gutierrez is a strong and tall fighter for the 130-pound division. Although his main strength is attacking, he has learned to fight strategically and take advantage of his arm reach to keep his opponents at a distance as the case may be. The Venezuelan has an above average punch, uses short punch combinations and always tries to do damage by throwing punches while static.

Colbert is a totally opposite boxer as he uses his speed and his waist movements to evade punches, he walks the ring very well and only attacks when he sees his opponent vulnerable. The American is quite patient, knows how to get out of difficult situations and do what is necessary to win rounds.

It will be a contrast in the ring in which Gutierrez seems to have the power on his side but Colbert has the advantage in speed and technique.On February 26th we will know which style best suits and takes the world crown of the pioneer organization. 

“The Kid” Gutierrez comes into the fight with 26 wins, 3 losses, 1 draw and 20 knockouts, while “Prime Time” Colbert is undefeated in 16 fights, with 6 knockouts.
