Yes, he prospered up a department, however he’s young and has time to fight at a more natural weight for where he remains in his profession. Gonzalez is the regrettable soul inviting Rodriguez back to the department. He’s a difficult sufficient fighter, however Rodriguez is most likely to be able to use him down and get the interruption. Pick: Jesse Rodriguez through TKO9 -170 (Rodriguez in Rounds 7-12 +140)Shakur Stevenson (-2000) vs. Shuichiro Yoshino (+1000): As pointed out, this is a bad design match for Yoshino. Yoshino requires to be inside to do any quality work and Stevenson is not a fighter who permits people to close range and keep battles in close quarters. Yoshino is worthy of the fight and is a quality welcome to light-weight for Stevenson, however the only genuine concern here is whether Stevenson shows up the heat to the point where he can get the interruption or if he chooses a broad choice. Pick: Shakur Stevenson through UD -240 Sebastian Fundora (-1000) vs. Brian Mendoza (+650): This is the kind of fight where Fundora’s greatest challenger is himself. As constantly, he might utilize his extraordinary length to make a fight simpler on himself.

Fundora is the much better fighter and a heavy favorite for a factor, however he will be putting himself at threat against a man who does have the power to complete a fight if he begins to link easily. Still, Fundora’s quality needs to triumph. Pick: Sebastian Fundora through UD -120 (Fight over 10.5 rounds -160)
