The fight between American Max Holloway and Korean Jung Chan Sung, nicknamed “Korean Zombie”, is scheduled for August 26, 2023. The fight will take place in Singapore, in the city of Kallang, as part of the ESPN 50 tournament. Bookmakers see Holloway as the favorite, but the Korean is sure that he has a chance.

As part of the ESPN 50 tournament, in addition to Max Holloway and the “Korean Zombie”, Anthony Smith and Ryan Spann will also meet in light heavyweight, Chidi Njokuani and Michael Olekseichak in the middleweight division, and Rinya Nakamura and Fernie Garcia in the bantamweight division. But the main event of this day will be the fight of Max Holloway, who has not entered the ring since April.

Holloway was scheduled to have a rematch with Mexico’s Yair Rodriguez, but it didn’t take place and Jung Chan Sung was first in line to fight the famous Hawaiian fighter. The Korean for a long time stirred up interest in the fight, confidently declaring that Holloway is a fighter with a weak blow and he has a chance to win. Now we can test this statement of the “Korean Zombie”.

Max Holloway

Max Holloway is a 31 year old American fighter born and living in Hawaii. He has roots in Samoa, and Holloway’s parents were drug addicts and separated when Max was 11 years old. The mother was subsequently able to cope with the addiction.

Max grew up on the streets of Honolulu and was into street fighting, and in 2007 he took up kickboxing, winning his first amateur fight after three days of training. Already at the age of 19, Holloway began his professional career and in 2012 was recognized as one of the most promising fighters in MMA – he was compared with former UFC champion Anthony Pettis because of his ability to use a wide range of punches from boxing, kickboxing and other martial arts.

Alas, Holloway lost his first serious fight in MMA, losing in 2012 to Dustin Poirier – this was his debut in the featherweight division. Later in 2019, Holloway wanted to take revenge on Poirier, but lost again. But what is interesting is that only Poirier, Conor McGregor, Alex Volkanovski (three times) and Dennis Bermudez, world-class fighters, defeated Holloway in the octagon. Holloway himself has victories over Anthony Pettis, Brian Ortega, Yair Rodriguez, Jose Aldo.

Jung chan sung

Korean Jung Chan Sung is a 36-year-old fighter who has a high level in martial arts such as hapkido, judo, taekwondo, and also in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Like Holloway, he primarily competed in the lightweight and welterweight divisions.

The Korean for a long time performed only on the national arena, and he only fought his first fight with a foreigner in 2008, defeating the Japanese Michiro Omigawa. His first defeat also happened to the Japanese Masanori Wagehara in 2009. But what is interesting is that Jung Chan Sung once defeated those whom Holloway could not cope with – Dustin Poirier in 2012 and Dennis Bermudez in 2017. Volkanovski recently also lost, like Brian Ortega, but defeated the American Dan Aige, which earned him the right to enter the octagon against Holloway.

Opinion of bookmakers

Bookmakers see Holloway as the favorite of this fight – you can bet on his victory with a coefficient of 1.15, but on the Korean they give a decent coefficient of 5.9, on which you can earn decent money.

The “Korean Zombie” is already aged and it is difficult to expect any miracles from him against the younger Max Holloway, but still his level allows us to hope for victory under favorable circumstances, since the Korean has the art of knockout, as well as a wide variety of techniques.
