  1. I would definitely fancy Whittaker in a 5 round fight against Yoel. I think Romero might control the first two rounds with his wrestling. If Whittaker can survive the early storm I see him taking over in the second half of the fight.

  2. Robert will have a hard time against the extreme steroid freakin Cuban. It's amazing how Cubans all look ROIDED to the teeth all the time. I assume being juiced to the eyeballs is normal in Cuba.
