Prospect of the Year (with 15 fights or less): Egidijus Kavaliauskas
Though to the western world Egidijus Kavaliauskas name is nearly a head scratcher to say, he skill-set and fast tracked path in the the welterweight division is nothing short of praise. Kavaliaskas, who goes by the nickname “Mean Machine” is trained by Robert Garcia and can hit hard and when I say hard, I mean hard.
Kavaliauskas defeated fighters most managers keep fighters away from in a very good fighter in Prenice Brewer, Jeremy Bryan and spoiler Cameron Kreal since each one of those fighters have record that are not reflective of their skill-set and often you don’t get much credit for winning.
“The Mean Machine” appears to be a fighter that can give fighters at the top of the division a tough bout as well as having manager Egis Klimas in his corner means that Kavaliauskas will get a big opportunity in the near future
