Forecast for battle

In the December battle, “Alexander the Great” in many ways surprised by Holloway for two things – its speed and lomikami. Instead of target the chin Volkanovski focused on the feet of an opponent.

Holloway used due to advantages in growth with ease gabite opponents, as he did with Edgar and Brian Ortega. Volkanovski though significantly below its growth, but the Australian has the advantage of reach. Also, the champion confident feeling in the clinch.

Not in favor of the former champion says that over the past few years, he received a lot of damage, and maybe his career is going downward. Maybe he will be better prepared for the speed and locical, but given that his style is based on the pressure and throwing many strikes, it can cause problems with the necessary adjustments. And not the fact that Holloway will not fall into a new trap Volkanovski. It looks like that max is not a very good match.
