Does he fight the same way every time and has he fought a fighter of your syle before? Breathing is a defenit especially since you noted your cardio is below par don't blow or wait for a dec. Give it your all and be proud for doing so, and good luck. I know T BEAR has faught recently oversea's his advice would be creditable.
All the info I have on him is in the first post of this topic. It's his first fight too.

Work your game. If thats boxing then use your explosiveness to close the distance and nullify his reach. Dont stay outside and get picked apart. If you clinch you sound like you know what to do. Try to get a solid side control a beat him up there.
Before your fight, train off your back. Do some sub escapes. Basically train out of your worst case scenario. You need a plan in case things dont go your way. Do that and you'll feel more confident that you can handle whatever happens.
Good luck man, let us know how it goes!
Thanks man, useful info.
