Shane’s Free Pick

In a lot of similar situations, I would take the underdog, but I don’t think that is a smart case here. Silva has been knocked out in two of his last three starts and it’s going to be no different in this fight. Tsarukyan is a knockout artist and he’s going to get the job done here. Silva isn’t going to be able to take the power. Back Tsarukyan to win by knockout.
