Dmitriy Zaporozhets is set to cross paddles with Artem Tkachenko for the second time today in the Setka Cup.
Zaporozhets has been in stellar form this morning winning four from four contests including a definitive 3-1 victory over Tkachenko himself.
Alternatively, Tkachenko is on a horrid run of four loses on the trot and will be desperate to turn the tides in this one.
Nothing splits the pair in their head-to-head record, with both players claiming four wins each across their last eight outings, but Dmitriy’s current form gives him the edge in this one.
Denis and Kyrylo Ivchenko represent the biggest sibling rivalry in Ukraine since Wladimir and Vitali Klitschko donned the gloves, ad both feisty player will be looking to land a knockout blow tonight.
Denis is the Ivchenko to beat at the moment, he has won four from his last five meetings and holds a 75% win rate over his less talented brother.
Kyrylo isn’t a pushover though, he has claimed four victories from his last seven matches and rarely goes down without a fight.
Two of the last four matches between this pair have gone to a fifth and deciding set and I’m backing this one to go the distance once again.
