These two heavyweights like to connect with power, as both fighters have knockout ability. One bet I’d lean for this one is under 2.5 rounds. For the overall contest, Muzakanov has been on a tear of late, but the experience of Jacoby should kick in. Take Jacoby on the moneyline and he carries odds of +225 for a KO win.
