MATT FREVOLA ROOSEVELT ROBERTS LOWDOWN

Matt ‘The Steamrolla’ Frevola is back in action and steps out of the fist time in 2020. He also has his mojo back after getting clipped by Polo Reyes suffering his first loss and knockout back in January 2019. He then fought to a draw with Lando Vannata but got back to winning ways with a unanimous decision over Jalin Turner and a closer split decision over Luis Pena.

Roosevelt ‘The Predator’ Roberts is keeping as active as ever and makes his third outing at the APEX. He received a wrestling lesson from Vinc Pichel to suffer his first loss in June last year, responded with great wins over Alexander Yakovlev and Brok Weaker and fought Jim Miller full of confidence but got submitted in the first round – another lesson that will serve him well.

MATT FREVOLA VS ROOSEVELT ROBERTS PREDICTION

Roberts has the range on Frevola with a two-inch reach and five-inch height advantage so the key for Frevola is to stick to his strengths which is his wrestling just like Pichel did. Frevola is also coming off that win over Pena who poses a very similar threat to Roberts in terms of stature and skill set so a lot of people are backing him to grind out another decision.

Roberts can pose a threat off his back using his length, but he has to keep the fight on the feet. Roberts is the better striker and he has to look for a knockout as Frevola will put on a relentless pace for three rounds.

Winner: Frevola via Decision

Value bet: Roberts via KO/TKO
