if Pat chops his legs down with kicks and then goes for the KO he'll be ok imo

Lavar could very well do what Kongo did and catch Barry closing the distance, his reach is pretty massive for HW and against a HW with a short reach Barry will need to use a lot of kicks. Which is what I anticipate, a lot of footwork, jabs, and hella lotta leg kicks to weaken Lavar's power and his confidence in his striking. This is clear case of survive the early minute or two of Lavar, if not counter him and knock him out himself and maybe Barry can get a submission on a guy who has just as bad of a ground game as him...? who knows

However I like Barry to win big here, by TKO from leg kicks or Strikes in general.

This is a sweet match up. I think it would be smart for Barry to try and chop him down with leg kicks but he hasn't used that advantage in his past 2 fights. I still see HD coming out on top in this one.
Great Fight.
