Randall Bailey aka "The Knockout King" will strike again on Saturday night against undefeated Mike Jones.

Bailey's power will be the ultimate difference maker in this showdown. He has recorded 36 knockouts in his career, and he's ready to add to that total.

Bailey is considered the most powerful boxer in the world. His power is sensational, and if you haven't watched him before, you are in for a real treat.

Jones will be looking to keep his record unmarked, but he'll need to be on top of his game. When Bailey gives him opportunities to counter-strike, Jones must take them and land his punches.

Bailey will give him several opportunities to land those strikes, but Jones has to make it happen. He has to be sharp, patient, quick and he has to plan ahead. 

If he can capitalize on his opportunities to land counter-strikes when Bailey looks to deliver his powerful blows, Jones has a great chance to walk away with another victory.

It won't happen, though.

Bailey will land his power punches, forcing Jones to be more aggressive. Once Jones becomes the aggressor, Bailey will begin to land even bigger shots.

Prediction

Bailey surprises Jones with his power, and he'll land a couple of big shots in the middle rounds. Jones will become more frustrated as the rounds go along, and he will open himself up for a huge blow. 

Bailey wins the IBF Welterweight Title by KO.
