Anders has a great ground game and one that should give Park trouble, but the former University of Alabama linebacker has major endurance issues and tends to gas out early. Park wants to keep the fight standing and he’ll try to box from distance and use his range and footwork to keep Anders from advancing. If I had confidence in Anders’ conditioning this fight would be a toss up, but Park should win the final two rounds and get a decision.
