Sometimes there are "all action" fights that you can't blink. The co-feature on tonight's Friday night fights should be exactly one of these...
Byarm/Abdusalamov under 7.5, -175, 17.5 units.
Byarm ITD, +622, 2.5 units
I simply don't like Cruz's old legs. Every fight he is in seems to be a dogfight and he isn't exactly hard to find. Fortuna has feasted on inferior opposition early in his career. However, this represents a logical step up in class against a certified gatekeeper.
The problem is Cruz is generally passive and not a particularly fast starter. Fortuna will bum-rush him early and I don't believe Cruz can land anything to stop Fortuna from coming in with reckless aggression. I wish there were round props, as I would simply take a shot at the 1-3 at a small "+" number. Unfortunately there isn't such a prop so I have to take Fortuna ITD at -175, 8.75 units.
