This weekend, King of the Dot will be holding World Domination 3, and this is the first in a three part series, giving our predictions on the battles going down over the weekend. Day one will also feature a DJ Battle, as well as a Beatbox Battle. Check back tomorrow, for our predictions on day two of the event, and Thursday for our day three predictions. Feel free to give your own predictions, in the comments below.
Tricky P vs Chris Leese
Chris Leese earned himself a battle at World Domination 3, by winning Don’t Flop’s Times Change Tournament. Tricky P, on the other hand, is coming off of a couple of disappointing performances. Leese may be able to sneak out a win, if Tricky were to give a similar performance, but with the amount of time he’s had to prepare, and the stage the battle is taking place on, I don’t see that happening.
Prediction: Tricky P
J Pro vs Aftershock
Aftershock will be looking to redeem himself, after losing to Fingaz, in the Grand Prix. A lot of King of the Dot fans may not be too familiar with J Pro leading into this battle, but it’s safe to say they will be after it. J Pro’s a tough opponent for anybody, with his ability to pack as many punches into his rounds as possible, and as talented as Aftershock is, it may be tough for him to keep up.
Prediction: J Pro
Fingaz vs Shotty Horroh
One of the battles I’m personally looking forward to the most, from this year’s World Domination. Fingaz has been impressing everyone in the Grand Prix this year, and has shown he’s one of the most creative and gifted writer’s of the new generation. Shotty’s been killing things in Don’t Flop, and quickly risen to prominence in the UK. The deciding factor is Fingaz’ tendency to choke, leaving me to go with Shotty, if I had to choose.
Prediction: Shotty Horroh
Rone vs Protege
Protege made an impressive debut at last year’s World Domination 2, and earned himself a step up in competition, at this year’s event. Rone is coming off of a long layoff, following his impressive victory over Okwerdz, after taking some time off to focus on his debut album. This battle has the potential to steal the show, and should be a great battle, regardless of who wins.
Sonny Bamboo vs Osa
Another potential show stealer, when Sonny Bamboo makes his King of the Dot debut, against Osa. Osa is coming off of a classic battle with 24/7, from King of the Dot’s Blackout 2 event. Sonny’s last battle was a controversial loss to A-Class, in the semifinals of the Most Hated tournament. This battle is a virtual toss up, that will basically come down to who wants it more.
Deffinition vs Dirtbag Dan
Don’t Flop’s Deffinition has had impressive showings at both of the previous World Domination events, and will be looking to do the same when he faces Dirtbag Dan. Dirtbag Dan hasn’t fared as well, losing to Madchild at last year’s event. That said, it’s hard to bet against Dan, who more often that not, finds a way to win even the battles people might expect him to lose.
Prediction: Dirtbag Dan
Pat Stay vs Head Ice
This is the battle I’m most looking forward to at World Domination 3, and has the potential to be an all-time classic. It will be interesting to see if Pat Stay takes the same approach as his last few battles, and goes for personal attacks, trying to get under Head Ice’s skin. It will also be interesting to see how the Canadian crowd reacts to Head Ice’s material, and whether or not it connects with them.
Prediction: Head Ice
