Kevin Holland is heading into the fight here standing at 6’3” and 185 pounds. However, he has a decent reach that has him sitting at 81 inches in the reach. That is a huge advantage when it comes to the reach over his opponent.
Holland is heading into the bout here with a Kung Fu style of fighting style which will sit well with his Orthodox style of fighting. In his last 5 bouts Holland has picked up 4 wins and a loss. The loss was by submission, but he did pick up a TKO win earlier this month.
Daniel Rodriguez is heading into the bout standing a little bit shorter in the match at 6’1” and lighter as well at 170 pounds. Rodriguez also is giving up a 7 inch reach advantage in the bout here and that will not help him out either.
D-Rod is coming into the bout as a Southpaw style of fighter, but he does not have a true fighting style that he is able to fall back on. Rodriguez in his last 5 bouts has not lost a single fight and in his last fight he won it by a submission in February of this year. Most of this fights, though, have been decided by a TKO/KO style of fight.
This is a bout that is definitely slanted. The fact that Rodriguez is going to be fighting a larger opponent puts him at a disadvantage. At the same time, the reach advantage for Holland will definitely make a big difference in the fight here. Look for Holland to win this fight rather easily for Holland. Fight Winner, Kevin Holland.
