Free Boxing Pick:

Jairzinho Rozenstruik +230

The bout here is one that has Ngannou heavily favored and it would seem that a lot that stems from his size advantage. However, Bigi Boy is one fighter that has been able to dominate a lot of the bouts he has been involved in and that will definitely make it easier for Bigi Boy to win this bout here. Look for the fight to go past the first round, though, which also favors the slightly smaller fighter. Look for Rozenstruik to fight good in this bout and pull out the win. Fight Winner Prediction, Jairzinho Rozenstruik.
