There is little doubt that this fight will be a striking battle. I lean a little bit toward Rozenstruik, as I think he has fought better competition, but the best bet in this fight is the rounds. I would be surprised if this fight lasts long. The round total at BookMaker is 1.5 and we get +168 on the under. I will take the plus money and go under the rounds total.
