David Onama vs Garrett Armfield: Fight Breakdown
Garrett Armfield has a decent record of 8 wins and 2 losses. But he is a great finisher and always on the hunt for an opportunity to finish the fight. The 25-year-old youngster has knocked out 5 of his opponents so far. Most of his finishes came in the first 2 rounds themselves. He even won the vacant FAC championship in his last fight against Steven Graham.
David Onama on the other hand is an aggressive striker. His average of 6.49 strikes per minute shows the perfect evidence of it. As mentioned above, he has a finishing rate of 100%. But not all of those were knockouts, Onama has 6 KOs and 3 submissions under his belt.
He will definitely be the favourite to win against Garrett Armfield. Not only from a skillset point of view, but he is also the bigger fighter. Armfield has never fought in the featherweight division. The odds are stacked against him and it will not be surprising to see Onama continuing to maintain his 100% finishing rate.
