Fights To Keep An Eye For
NYFights focuses on very promising bouts. Herbert Burns will try to submit Bill Algeo by any means necessary, but if he fails, Algeo’s cardio might be too much for him. If the fight goes past round 1, there's a huge chance that Gilbert Burns' brother's gonna gas.
The submission expert Jack Shore will give his best to submit wrestling phenom Ricky Simon, but the Welsh fighter can also stand and bang for three rounds. But if Simon drags the fight to the ground, he should be aware that Shore is one of the most dangerous 135ers off his back.
Punahele Soriano always fishes for KO but leaves himself open, so expect big bombs to the face in his outing versus Dalcha Lungiambula. One punch could send someone to sleep, both of these guys are super-powerful.
Shane Burgos eats too many shots, but Charles Jourdain loves toe-to-toe fights, this is the candidate for the Fight of the Night. And of course, the winner of Brian Ortega vs Yair Rodriguez might get a 145-pound title shot, it has to be an entertaining one to watch!
