Bolaji Oki’s (8-1) debut was supposed to be against Damir Hadzovic who unfortunately pulled out days before the fight but thankfully, he is still on the card. He has not looked back after losing his first professional fight racking up five knockouts and a submission in his eight wins. His last dub was a brilliant TKO, tenderizing Dylan Salvador (2023) on the Contender Series to seal the contract.

Timothy Cuamba (8-1) steps up to the plate on just four days’ notice. He holds the same record but will be stepping up from featherweight. He also featured on the Contender Series where he earnt a unanimous decision over Mateo Alejandro Vogel (2023). It was not quite enough to seal a contract but, he has already picked up a win which only last week where he knocked out Michael Stack for the Tuff-N-Uff banner.


The odds are clearly stacked against Cuamba who steps up a weight class to fight the prospect who has a full training camp behind him. That said, Cuamba is clearly in fight shape and flying high after his superb head kick knockout.

He is a technical striker who can wrestle. He will be wise to get his wrestling boots on, however, it is hard to see him being able to take Oki down. Oki will be too big, strong and explosive to latch onto which will force this into a stand-up battle.

We expect Cuamba to hold his own for the first round, but Oki’s size and speed advantage will be clear to see and a knockout or decision is most likely.

Prediction: Oki via KO/TKO
