Till had lost two fights in a row by finish, before getting back on the right track in his last fight against Kelvin Gastelum Till was actually outstruck in that fight, but he still had enough fight control to come away with a split decision win.

Till really hasn’t been all that impressive as of late, and Whittaker is no doubt the better fighter. Look for him to throw more power punches and come away with the victory.
