Liam Smith is the favorite going in against Anthony Fowler. Smith is by far the more experienced of the two but Fowler is by far the fresher of the two. Smith feels like he has a lot of miles on the odometer despite him only being 33 years old. Anthony Fowler is a very skilled boxer and this might be his breakout moment. We have not seen where Fowlers ceiling will be but we have seen Smiths ceiling in his fights against Canelo Alvarez and Jamie Munguia.
This feels like a fight that goes the distance and it feels like Fowler will edge it on the scorecards in a close fight. The odds for that is +350 (4.50 decimal odds) and that is where the value is.
