Prediction

Both men are young in their career and this is the biggest test for both of these guys. Cherant has fought awful competition, beating guys with a combined record of 3-14 with eight total fights (pro and amateur). Camur’s opponents combined record is 18-4 showing to be much better. Camur has a big advantage on the feet as his jab and power will play a factor. Cherant may have the better grappling but that usually shows when the opposition goes for takedowns. Cherant just isn’t ready and I think better suited for 185. I have Camur getting it done.
