Bika should win, if he trains like he did for his bout againts Bute, none of the will have enough tools to beat him IMO.

banks for me had a great showing against manfredo in almost exposion factor

he had little amatuear experienmce but he has so much boxing talent he has great hand speed but littl pop and his stamina is a bit slugish in the later roudns and he is rather short in the grand sheme of things.....selling him well i see.

anyways banks by blitzing combo's

Yeah... Bika is awkward to fight and it can take some time for a fighter to adjust to his style and in 5 rounds fight it can be a factor.

Plus, Soliman can throw a thousand punches in a 12 round fight, in a 5 rounder, he probably can throw from 400 to 500 punches.

that's why they are the 2 fighters I think have the best chances to win the Contender III.

Soliman-Bika 1 was very close.

Both fighters have improved heaps, but Soliman fights more aggressive now and he wins more fights but he also puts himself at risk at getting caught a lot more because he lacks true boxing skills.

Back in the day Soliman was a journeyman and he fought a style that would make guys look hell bad and never allow them to win rounds convincingly. But he also was very defensive and never really won those rounds convincingly himself. So he was on the wrong end of a lot of close, sometimes controversial decisions.

Now he has changed his style, he is training properly and the results show, however as the Mundine fight showed he is more likely to get caught and he doesnt have that air of being impossible to knockout now.

I think Bika can get this, in their last fight Sakio started slow and had to adjust to Soliman's awkward style. He finished very strong in that fight, I think he knows how to handle him.

I think Bika will edge out Soliman in the 5 rounders . Although I can't wait to see Soliman on the show , that guys fitness level is freakish!

I have no doubt that Bika would win vs Soliman. He looked very good in the first 6 rounds vs Bute. Soliman seems more comfortable at 160. My bet is still Bika for Contender win.

Keep me posted - coz I am not sure we air it in Denmark anymore....
