Shane’s Free Pick
Font was knocked down three times in his last fight, and he’s going to struggle in this fight. Sandhagen looked good in his last fight and he has a ton of power in his hands. Even with that though, Font has never been knocked out, and his chin is going to be strong again here. Sandhagen is going to wear down Font, and he’s going to dominate the fight, but he’s not going to get the finish. Back Sandhagen to win by decision.
