Opetaia is the real deal

Post by BIGDOUG58 »

After watching Jai Opetaia destroy Jordan Thompson I don't any Cruiserweight in the World can beat him, he had his Jaw broken in second round against Marius Breides and still won unanimous decision, can't wait to see who he fights next

Opetaia was very impressive but without trying to detract from his performance, I'm not sure how good Thompson is.

Opetaia's power, aggression and confidence sure has increased from a few fights ago.

I like Opetaia, but he beat a british level kinda guy.
But he didn't fight for almost 15 months, so I'm okay with that.

I just regret watching Gassiev vs Wallin instead of his fight :D

Anyway, was still a great performance. I liked his aggression and power. It should be very easy to make him marketable.
The only downside is the weight-class he is fighting in. Sadly, there are not alot of good fights to be made there and I can see him having a hard time at heavyweight.
But, we'll see.

its weird how a lotta ppl needed to see him beat jordan thompson to be convinced he's legit, rather than him beating the world #1 briedis

very talented guy

Opetaia says his preference is for a unification fight now but is more than prepared to fight Briedis again and confident he will win a rematch.
