The third matchup set to take place at LFNE Championship 4 highlights a pair of exciting competitors in Jackson Kiriki and Victor Andere. This featherweight bout is just one of the intriguing matchups slated for the anticipated event.
We are nearing the time for all of these fighters to show what they are made of as LFNE Championship 4 airs on Saturday, July 10th. The event can be viewed on KUTV Kenya. With so much to break down and preview, let’s jump right into it.
A Look at the Fighters
Jackson Kiriki is one of LFNE’s newest signings and has a record of 1-1, he has power in almost every shot he throws but his relentless grappling is definitely his biggest advantage heading into this bout. With a more experienced opponent standing across the cage from him, “The Eagle” should use heavy feints to draw out attacks and use the momentum to work for a takedown and get some significant ground and pound or even work for a submission.
Victor Andere steps up at LFNE Championship 4 with a record of 3-1. With a win in this contest, “Panther” could be next in line for a title shot. Andere has devastating power and knows when to put it all into a punch, he is very patient so if his opponent tries to utilize feints too early on, he may be able to read them and take advantage from there. He has a beautiful jab that allows him to set up body shots, this is also a way for him to adopt an anti-wrestling style heading into this fight.
Jackson Kiriki vs Victor Andere Breakdown
Using the knowledge we have just gained, let us break down the main event fight of LFNE Championship 4. Jackson Kiriki will look to counter high pace and volume with heavy wrestling pressure and distance management with feints. Andere has the ability to put anyone’s lights out with one shot and although it will be difficult, a knockout finish is not unlikely in this matchup.
Andere has amazing cardio and could even use the previously mentioned anti-wrestling style to exhaust Kiriki and then work the body in the later moments of the fight. Calculation is key in this fight as overreacting to any movement could come at a cost. Both men have so many keys to victory so it is definitely a hard bout to call.
