please stop making that "former boxing pro/exp"..that's the same thing people said bout Marcus Davis..and he got rock-n-drop by Hardy,Saunders..and he got drop by Paul Taylor before pullin off the armbar..oh,btw Sakara got KO'd by McFedries & Houston Alexander..and don't try to say "oh their heavy handed thou"..cause then your "pro boxing" argument holds no credibilty..it doesn't matter if you were former golden glove like Jamie Varner..anyone can get drop with those 4oz gloves..and James Irvin has beat better opponents than Sakara has...



This is true, but you would be stupid to totally neglect the fact that he was a former boxer, especially when breaking down a fight. ANYONE can get dropped w/ a punch when you're wearing 4 oz gloves, but the boxing experience has a lot more to do than just throwing punches.....footwork, head movement, etc.....regardless, I'm done with this topic, we'll see what happens in the fight.

Sakara doesn't like getting hit. James Irvin hits very hard. Irvin by KO.

This fight would be so much easier if a few things werent true about James Irvin.

1) The major layoff, almost every fighter that has taken a year or more off lately has lost.

2) The painkiller issue, what is his state mentally? will he be the same fighter? idk.

3) The first cut to 185, on top of the layoff fighters usually have bad performances in the first cut.

Sakara wins a decision.

Irvin has always slowed down as fights went on, and most fighters that come back after a long layoff win by decision. Sakara is the sharper of the two and should win the later rounds with ease if he doesnt run into a superman punch early.

Edit - And its Irvins first weight cut to 185.
