Not Bored of Bordoy – Motivated Rabei Promises to make American Quit

Victor Rabei [10(3)-0] bolding predicts he will make Omar Bordoy [11(3)-1] quit on his stool when they fight on a ‘Rockin’ Fights’ fight night next month.

The Moldovan Dub finally fights the American, a fighter he was initially meant to trade leather with in December of 2019, spring of 2020, and spring of this year before the pandemic and injury hit, on a Star Boxing show in the Paramount Theatre, Huntington New York on October 1.

‘Slick Vic’ is in a confident mood ahead of the rescheduled grudge match and predicts he will tame and stop ‘The Beast’ to re kick start his career.

Making a bold prediction for the scrap he told Irish-boxing.com: “Omar quits on the stool or the corner throw in the towel. I don’t think he’ll be able to get close to me. I predict a clinical performance with a lot of damage.”

It’s a fight that has been in the pipeline for nigh four years and Bordoy is a name synonymous with disappointment for the Moldovian Dub.

However, ‘Slick’ hasn’t gotten fatigued with the fight. In fact, he is adamant it’s quite the opposite, claiming he is full of excitement ahead of his American debut and suggesting he feels the need to settle his differences with Connecticut.

“I’m still extremely hungry for this fight with Omar. Because it fell through so many times, I want it more than ever. It’s a fight I need to get over before I can move on with my career.”

A win against an American with a more than solid record stateside would certainly see Rabei make up for lost time, and finally enable a fighter, who to his credit has taken risky fights early in his career, kick onto the next level.

“A win will put my career back on track for big fights,” he adds. “I’ve been extremely unlucky since I fought Jake Haney with injuries and fights falling through. But I’ve kept my head down and trained hard.”
