PREDICTION

Laying 3-to-1 odds against a guy like Boetsch is not ideal. This is a middleweight fight, where one punch can change everything, and Boetsch has a chin on him. We know that. Still, he's just not the athlete Lombard is. On top of that, Lombard picks his shots and can take things down if he needs to.

LOMBARD ALL THE WAY.
