Font & Garbrandt Stats
It is a phenomenal matchup between two of one of the best boxers at bantamweight, however each males even have underrated floor video games, so don’t be shocked if sooner or later one among them shoots on the opposite one.
Nonetheless, I do anticipate this to be extra of a kickboxing combat and I feel Font within the first spherical or two will attempt, and simply stick his jab out and never like Garbrandt get inside. As soon as that occurs, we’ve got seen the previous champ get annoyed and rush into one thing and get right into a brawl which will get him knocked out.
