Yo what's up here is Victorio and I am bringing the preview of an anticipating event of World Boxing Alliance: WBA XXII! We will have a title fight on the line between the reigning SHW champion David Drake rematching against the former champion Frederick Jackson. WOW, this main event is gonna be huge! Let's move on and take a look at the preview first!
SHW bout: Corey Joseph Murry (1-3) vs Randy Savage (0-0)
Two 26-year old boxers are going to make an exciting start of the card! Murry is 1-2 in WBA and he has low morale after losing two in a row so it would be a big factor in this match. Savage is a debutant but he looks extremely confident and ready coming to this one. Both men's skill sets are even so it would be a toss up in terms of skills but talking about the mentality and conditioning, the advantage will go to the debutant Savage with no doubt. I believe he can score a first round TKO.
Prediction: Savage wins by 1st round TKO
SHW bout: Brian Harris (10-15) vs Nazar Ivanov (2-3)
In second bout of the event, we have another SHW matchup. Harris is a journeyman who has a lot of experience in boxing. He is the former WCSA HW champion and two-time SHW title challenger in WBA. Not only experience, his dangerous KO power would be a big threat against less-experienced Ivanov. 8 of his 10 wins are by (T)KO but also received 12 (T)KO losses in his career. He is kill-or-killed warrior so he is fun to watch. Ivanov is way less experienced and also has a suspect chin like Harris as all of his 3 losses are by (T)KO. I believe the experience and KO power of Harris can give Ivanov a lot of trouble. I am expecting a first round TKO.
Prediction: Harris wins by 1st round TKO
SHW bout: Sandro Poletto (3-0) vs Jorge Terrazas (1-1)
Undefeated 21-year old prospect Sandro Poletto is looking to extend his winning streak against the frustrated 26-year old Jorge Terrazas. Poletto is definitely a legit contender in the SHW division and he always looking confident and energetic. Terrazas is coming off a TKO loss against Nazar Ivanov and has really low morale. He isnt looking ready to compete against such promising prospect. I believe Poletto can score a first round TKO as he always did.
Prediction: Poletto wins by 1st round TKO
LHW bout: Joe Holyfield (28-20) vs Junior Sasi (14-17)
The only LHW bout in the card and this is the rematch between these two boxers. Holyfield is an elite boxer who has 23 knockouts to his credit. He has tons of power in his hands. Sasi is a wrestler who started his boxing career long time ago but still not successful so far. Holyfield knocked out Sasi brutally in 27 seconds of the first round in their first meeting so I believe the rematch won't have any difference.
Prediction: Holyfield wins by 1st round KO
WBA SHW championship:
David Drake (22-8) vs Frederick Jackson (13-11)
This is the rematch we are waiting for! The reigning and defending WBA SHW champion David Drake is looking to defend his title for the first time against the former WBA SHW champion Frederick Jackson. The champion spends most of his time in MMA and actually he only has three fight in boxing matches so far. Anyway his world class striking is good enough to make him a boxing champion. Winning 20 fights by (T)KO and riding a 6 fight winning streak in MMA and boxing matches, Drake has a huge momentum coming to this title fight. The former champ has a lot more experience in boxing but his skills aren't in the same level as Drake. In their first meeting, Drake easily TKO'd him in the first round. I believe the champion can do that again. His winning streak will continue and I can't see anyone can really threaten him in the division.
Prediction: Drake wins by 1st round TKO to retain his WBA SHW title
I predicted all first round (T)KOs for all 5 matches in this card. As you guys know, in heavier division it's quite hard to get out of first round because they can knock each other out with one punch. I am expecting a quick event and I believe those knockouts would be as brutal as they can get!
Remember guys this event will take place in The Underground - Las Vegas, Las Vegas on 21st August. So find out any illegal live streams as yo like and enjoy the event that night!
Also remember to place your bets at Ka-Ching.
