This came from some guys facebook/twitter account, and its only a rumor. I dont like how Wand still trains on "Brazilian Time" and I think he has a good chance of losing if he dosnt start cutting right. I'd like to see Wand fight someone I dislike instead anyway, like Bisbing lol. Win lose or draw I gotta root for him.

Great match up if it goes down. Wandy will rain all over the Sexyama parade though. Wandy by brutal KO 1st

Wand will gas after the first round like he did against Rich. This is the first time he's cut down to 185, he struggled with 195. People forget that Akiyama's striking is actually pretty good since the belcher fight (broken orbital bone in the 1st round = loss of sight).

At any point in this fight Akiyama can take it to the ground if he likes. If Franklin can get Wand down I'm pretty sure Akiyama can.


Don't get me wrong, I love Wand but his new style of swinging telegraphed hooks untill he gasses is not doing him any favours in the win/ loss collumn.


My actual pick is Akiyama UD. He will mix versitile striking with flash judo throws and slick ground control.
