Strength Chilemba’s strength is his boxing ability. Cummings has good punching power in both hands and is a very good inside fighter.
Weakness Isaac does not have much power. Cory has been inactive. He only competed once in the past three years. He tends to get sloppy as the fight goes into the later rounds.
Experience Chilemba has been in the ring with top competitors.   He has been down and has come back to win. Cummings is a veteran with over 11 years’ experience.   Four of his six career defeats came against former world champions and title challengers.
Power If Chilemba puts his punches together, the power can come. Cory brings good power in both hands. In his last bout, he knocked down his opponent (Azea Augustama) in the first round.
Speed Speed advantage goes to Chilemba.   His boxing skills allow him to be very quick on his feet. Cummings has average speed.
Endurance The edge goes to Chilemba because he has fought 12 rounds eight times. Cummings has gone 12 rounds once and 10 rounds on five different occasions.
