Chimaev is putting his undefeated streak on the line and is the favorite in this fight with -600 odds. He is 9-0 and is coming off back-to-back first-round KO/TKO victories.

DraftKings Sportsbook Odds/Predictions
Splits: 75% of handle, 91% of bets on Chimaev
It is easy to see why Chimaev is the favorite in this fight. The 27-year old hasn’t lost and hasn’t even had a fight come to a decision by the judges. In fact, he hasn’t even had a fight reach the third round. Five of Jingliang’s fights have gone to the third round. Chimaev doesn’t waste time and can get to you by striking or taking you down and submitting you. Nobody has been able to come up with something to defeat him and I don’t think Jingliang has the solution.
