While Vera is the younger of the two fighters, he certainly hasn’t shown that he is more inexperienced. The fact that all of his losses have been fights that have gone the distance shows the stamina needed to be a dominant fighter. Cruz has shown that he has something left in the tank, but Vera has been nearly untouchable over his last three fights. He is favored in this one and should take the win.
