Stephen Erceg is confident a move up to bantamweight won’t hinder his performance as he looks to end the promising undefeated streak of fellow young West Australian Cody Haddon at HBF Stadium tonight.
Erceg (6-1) is on a five-fight winning streak and has finished his last four opponents by either knock out or submission, as he builds towards a shot at the UFC.
The 25-year-old was set to defend his Eternal MMA flyweight title against rival Paul Loga, but the Queenslander pulled out with an injury, changing his team’s plan and seeing him presented with the Haddon fight.
Haddon is a former amateur boxer who finished a 23-7 record, as well as being a four-time Pan Pacific Jiu-Jitsu champion, starting his MMA career with two professional finishes and five amateur victories.
This has a confident Erceg wary of his less experienced opponent, although he’s sure another finish is on the cards.
“I’m always looking to go out there and finish my opponent,” Erceg said.
“The only definitive way of proving who the best fighter is and who has the best skillset is going out and finishing. I don’t want it to go to the judges.
“I think I can beat him on the feet. He’s got a good boxing pedigree but I am well-rounded when it comes to striking. Even though he might on paper have the better stand up, I don’t think he does.”
Erceg said victory tonight would continue to have him on the path to the international stage, as he eyes the big leagues of the UFC, with Dana White’s Contender Series a potential option in the future.
“Hopefully after this win, I can start to get into contact with those people or an international fight,” he said.
“I want to follow in Jack Della Maddalena’s footsteps and move along that path.
“Flyweights a little bit more shallow, but there’s a good few fighters at the top of the division now. It’s never going to be easy.”
