Hamilton Prediction

Despite the bookmaker’s viewing this as one that will end early by way of; I think we’re in for a possible Fight of the Year candidate with 12 Rounds of oscillating & vociferous action that will see Angulo be declared the victor on a highly contentious razor thin (if still) unanimous decision victory.
