Vitor Miranda enters this fight with a 13-4 record and has won 77 percent of his fights by knockout. Miranda has won his last three fights and is coming off a March win over Marcelo Guimarães. Miranda is averaging 4.09 significant strikes per minute with an accuracy percentage of 64.4 percent. Miranda is averaging 0.44 takedowns with an accuracy percentage of 50 percent. Miranda is still putting in work at 37 years old and will fight for the second time this year. There’s little secrets with Miranda, as he relies on his kickboxing background and 77-inch reach to win fights. Miranda has won his last four fights by knockout and has seen the third round just once in his last 10 fights. He’s not getting any younger, but Miranda is still dangerous. This will be Miranda’s second fight in Las Vegas.
Camozzi likes a fight standing up, which actually puts him at a disadvantage here simply due to Miranda having a high knockout percentage and the better overall striking attack. Camozzi is the younger and probably more athletic, but Miranda should be able to end this thing since he’s going to be in his comfort zone.
The price isn’t great, but I see Miranda winning his fourth straight fight.
