On June 20, two of the most dominant fighters that have ever fought inside the V3 cage as amateur collide in a pro bout. Former light heavyweight champion, Malcolm ‘Megatron’ Hardmon, will take on former middleweight and light heavyweight champion, Dekaire ‘Sandman’ Sanders.
However, so much more is a stake this time now that they are fighting as professionals, and I couldn’t think of a more even matchup on the night. Not only are both fighters former champions, but they are both looking for their first win as a professional. They each sport an 0-1 record, they are both tall fighters who like to use their reach, and both are dominant strikers with a very underrated ground game. Basically, these two are a mirror image of each other, and that always makes for a great fight.
Sanders is now training with Paragon Martial Arts in Mississippi and Hardmon fights out of the Kage Fit Gym/Team Top Pressure in Auburn, Alabama. This fight has potential to end in the first minute, or it can be a three round war. But make no mistakes about it, there will be fireworks when these two warriors collide. Both fighters had some things to say about this upcoming fight:
With all due respect to my opponent, he picked a good fight to call me out because I’m angry, I’m hungry, and it’s time for everyone to see the real Megatron.
Don’t blink. This fight is going to be an awesome display of skill. The guys at my new gym are freaks of nature. Don’t let their size fool you. Those guys are straight animals and I've been getting put through the gauntlet, and at the same time I’m gaining a lot of knowledge in areas that I've never focused on. I needed that push. I had to find my edge again.
The V3 Legion is in for a treat when these former champions collide on June 20!
