Two of the founders of ProBoxTV.com have given their predictions on the upcoming cruiserweight fight between David ‘The Great White’ Light 19-0 (12) and Brandon ‘Bulletproof’ Glanton 17-0 (14) at the White Sands Events Center in Plant City, Florida on Friday.

The bout will be for Light’s WBO International 200-pound title.

Former world champions Juan Manuel Marquez and Paulie Malignaggi are both expecting a close fight that could go either way.

“I think that the Glanton and Light fight is going to be competitive and a very good one because they are both ranked fighters, neither has lost and big things to come for the winner,” said Marquez, a ProBox TV Founder.

“I am inclined to give Glanton the upper hand because of his good boxing technique and punch combinations. He has a good ability to work the body which could slow down Light who is an aggressive fighter and has a lot of speed. I lean more towards Glanton for his boxing technique and pick Glanton by decision in a battle.”

“This is going to be an exciting fight between two undefeated cruiserweights,” said Malignaggi, also a ProBox TV Founder. “They say styles make fights, and that what we try to do at ProBox, put two guys in the ring that will generate excitement.

“Both of these guys are putting themselves in position for a world title fight. Only one can advance and who that will be we find out on December 2. Light is very tall with an awkward style. Glanton, if he can get in close he can hurt you. They have both earned their top ten ratings are both looking for a shot at the WBO champion Lawrence Okolie. The winner will most likely get that shot.”

Both Glanton and Light are predicting knockouts.

“This guy is my next victim and I am going to melt this guy,” said Glanton. “I am going to knock him out and the tougher he is the better. I am going to hurt this guy. I will lay him out cold.”

“We coming to beat him at his own game,” said Light of the brawler. “I may not be well-known now, but everyone is going to know who I am on Friday night when see my arm raised while Glanton is lying on the canvas.”

Light, who hails from Takapuna, New Zealand won the WBO International title on May 5, 2022 with a first-round knockout.  He is ranked number six by the WBO. His most recent bout on October 8 was a second-round knockout win.

Glanton, from Atlanta, Georgia is ranked number 10 by the WBO and is coming off three consecutive KO wins, the last a second-round blowout of Mario Aguilar on September 9 in Plant City on ProBox TV.
