burns/Usman - I just bet 3u on usman at -106 r 4/5/desc.
This feels a bit like a trap fight and i'm always uncomfortable being on the same side as the public but Usman has never been subbed and has trained with Gilbert extensively so should be able to avoid those subs if he needs to take it to the ground ( he may need to ).
The biggest concern i have is usman has changed camps for this one. Dont fix whats not broken. If I wasnt getting close to evens i would likely give it a pass.
I'm big on Munhoz over Rivera. I thought he beat Frankie last time out and his front kick to the body is one of the most effective shots in the game rn, imo. I also love his leg kicks. As a boxing guy I'm super impressed w/ Munhoz's kicking game. Have to bet him as a dog here and I'm in pretty big on him, over 3u probably closer to 4u. I don't feel comfortable w/ that much of my br riding on a close fight. Rivera is a beast in his own right, but I love Munhoz's game. I'm voting for Pedro on this one.
