it simply has to be sakara moving down as he looks small for a lhw and if leben needs to make a move it is down, not up.

what do you guys think of this fight. seems like sakaras hands will be too good for leben but leben has a good chin and sakara's is somewhat questionable so you never know.

my guess is sakara by decision but he could get caught...

Id have to give the small edge to Sakara. Just dont think Leben is that good. Never have. Not saying Sakara is a star, but for this bout; I think he'll get a late KO or UD.

I would say Sakara but Leben throws bombs if sakara trades with him he might get layed out.

If Leben gets cornered you can bet he's gonna throw some bombs.

thats a good move for sakara to move down. i think sakara will take this one late in the third with a ko.

I agree, Sakara will have a better time moving down, especially if his first fight is Leben. Leben can throw bombs, but he is much slower then Sakara, who is quite accurate with his punches. I don't see Leben getting out of this fight without getting KO'ed.

Leben can punch better off his knees than Sakara can punch off of his back. Leben by UD or KO. There's no reason for anyone to stand with a professional boxer with poor takedown defense.

29-3 in amateur boxing record 6-1 pro record in cruiserweight div. but this isnt boxing and Leben has a solid chin and has been training MMA since middle school.

sakara said after his fight with lee that he was going to move down to middleweight when joe rogan asked him what was next for him.
I thin he will be a big mw and he has very heavy hands and I see him finishing leben late in the 1st round
