Default Israel Garcia vs Solomon Haumono

I heard that this fight is going to be on the Tua undercard in Auckland. Does anybody care? Haumono lost to Whitehead. Was it a fluke, or is Whitehead that good? Garcia is Tua's sparring partner.

Garcia has had some good brawls in his time, but he is no world beater. This could be a good fight though in terms of action. I am actually looking forward to it. Though based upon the sparring vids, it looks like Garcia needs to drop a few before fight time. Still time to do that though.

Here he is fighting Chris Arreola:

Garcia does well until he steps up. He got stopped early by Arreola and Boytsov.

i think haumono is in for a very tough night.

this bloke took some ripper shots in the first two rounds against arreola and barely flinched.

he doesn't mind a strong tempo too by the looks of it.

but it is the sort of fight that solo needs too.

the wilson fight, the kirby fight and this one coming up will do more for him than the rest of his fights combined.

easy fights don't teach a fighter too much. it can also give them a false sense of their ability, which blows up in their face when all of a sudden when they go from fighting bums to someone with some decent skills.

i hope haumono does keep improving you just never know with the heavies, they can claim some big scalps without having to be world beaters.

Im thinking about round 6 or 7

Solo's got a punch but the other guy will start to beat him up unless he gets hit with a Tua-sized shot early
