Tai Tuivasa will seek to rebound from consecutive knockout defeats at the hands of Sergei Pavlovich and Ciryl Gane. Both of his opponents were knocked out. His win record of five straight fights came to an end when he was defeated by the latter in Paris.
Alexander Volkov, on the other hand, will enter the battle riding a two-fight winning run, having earned first-round technical knockout victories over both Alexandr Romanov and Jairzinho Rozenstruik. His opponent, Jairzinho Rozenstruik, is coming into the fight riding a single victory.
In light of the fact that the Russian is in fine form, ‘Bam Bam’ will need to perform at an exceptional level in order to win in front of his fellow Australians and get back to his winning ways.
