Vlamis, also is riding a four fight win streak which included wins that saw him capture the WBF Asia Pacific and Victoria State light heavyweight titles. The fight will test two fighters of contrasting styles, with Casey the southpaw having the advantage in height, with Vlamis, the orthodox fighter, having the advantage in speed.
