Pedro Carvalho is one of the Irish public’s favorite fighters despite being Portuguese, and that will give him extra energy heading into the tough fight against Mads Burnell. The last time he fought on “green soil” was in 2021, also in Dublin, when he defeated Daniel Weichel by unanimous decision.
We don’t know if it will have any effect, but Carvalho spent the last few days in his native Portugal, with a differentiated training due to the birth of his second child. Either it will give him more strength for combat, or we will notice a somewhat unfocused Carvalho.
The loss to Borics cut Burnell’s momentum, which seemed unstoppable. Now it is up to them to prove that a slip is not a fall, and that they are on their feet, no less than against a major rival.
It will not be an easy fight, but we believe that the victory will be in the hands of Mads Burnell.
Prediction: Mads Burnell wins by submission.
