Kevin Borjas Betting Preview

Borjas is looking to improve on his three fight winning streak as he enters this next fight. His last successful battle was a fourth round TKO against Sebastiao da Silva Calixto back in September of last year.

His fighting resume shows that all eight of his victories have come by knockout. Five of his eight knockouts have resulted in a first round finish and his only loss has come by a submission.

"El Gallo Negro" has spent most of his career with the Inka Fighting Championship, where he has gone 7-0 against a few solid opponents. His previous two were arguably some of his toughest battles, but he was able to find a way to win.

Borjas also went 13-3 in amateur matches, giving him some confidence heading into his professional career. He is also ranked as the 15th best flyweight fighter in Latin America, but has an opportunity to improve even better than that with a victory here.

Victor Dias Betting Preview

Dias is aiming to improve on his five fight winning streak as he approaches this battle. His most recent success was a second round arm triangle choke submission against Thiago Belo back in November of last year.

His fighting resume shows that he has 11 wins that consist of one knockout, six submissions, three decisions, and one by other. Four of his 11 wins have resulted in a first round finish and both of his losses have come by decision.

“Pacoca” has shown promising results in a few fight leagues. He has gone 4-1 in Titan Fighting Championships and 5-0 in the Watch Out Combat Show.

He has consistently battled against quality fighters lately, which should give him a boost for this fight. He also ranks as the 13th best professional bantamweight fighter in the US.
