This fight has the potential to be a snoozefest. No offense to the competitors, but their fights go to a decision more commonly than not. Green’s last eight fights and Iaquinta's last four fights have all come down to a decision. In fact, Green hasn’t won a fight before the decision since 2013 when he won by KO/TKO against James Krause. This one feels like it is going to a decision and I am going with Green solely because he has more recent fighting experience and Iaquinta may have some rust to shake off early.
