On Sunday, John “Doomsday” Howard will try to beat Lorenz Larkin and add him to his list of knockout victims, in a fight that pay per head services believe could prove to be a very brutal showdown, and one that MMA fans around the world are very eager to watch.
Ever since Howard returned to action last August, the fighter went 2-2 in four clashes that went all the way, and one of these fights was against Uriah Hall, where Howard emerged as the victor. Right now he has a losing skid of two fights – to Brian Ebersole as well as Ryan LaFlare – as lately he wasn’t able to release the beast within, but the fans can definitely look forward to a real battle in the Octagon when Larkin takes on Howard in Boston.
This week, Larkin will be fighting on enemy ground when he faces Howard, in an effort to get rid of the effect of three losses in a row and to avoid going down in the UFC. In what is considered to be a very severe fall in his career, Larkin is hardly two years past a very inspiring win in Strikeforce over Robbie Lawler, who’s the UFC champion at the moment, and fans everywhere are not ready to forget this fight, as it showed his massive potential.
Since that happened, the “Monsoon” was not able to get back in the groove again, as he was beaten by Derek Brunson, Brad Tavares, Francis Carmont, as well as to Costa Philippou by means of knockout, in a clash that was in the middle of a win over Chris Camozzi.
When he makes his debut at welterweight, the fighter is eager to change how things are going in his career by giving some very heavy kicks and punches to Howard, and fans all over the world believe that it will be a very wild clash in the Octagon.
Many experts and pay per head services alike are certain Larkin will be the one with the edge when it comes to speed, but he cannot afford to make any mistakes, as if he does, things could turn out for the worse, and he could be the one to be taken out as fans in Boston cheer Howard, who’s fighting at home. They still believe that Larkin will be able to win by means of unanimous decision, but nobody knows what will ultimately happen.
