Ian Parker's betting tip

In his last six fights, win or lose, Vettori has gone to a decision. Vettori is a very durable fighter who is hard to put away and has an endless gas tank that can spell trouble for most in a five-round fight. The only area of the fight where Vettori won't have an advantage is in the power department, as Cannonier can end a fight with a KO punch. Cannonier can be an inconsistent fighter, as sometimes you don't know which fighter you will get.
