This is the fight i've got my eye on tonight :boxing:

masternek looks in great shape...if dorticos has been damaged and his chin poss cracked by that horrible sustained beating he took last time out this could get very interesting. If not he will knock masternek out.

Good fight going under the radar. I'm baffled that Masternak is apparently only 31, I thought he was closer to 40. My gut tells me Masternak survives the early onslaught and gives Dorticos hell down the stretch.

Dorticos will win by knock out.

Comment by Mammoth on 10-19-2018

Masternak should make it a tough fight.....
