Prediction: Rafael Alves via KO/TKO

This is a very competitive match-up as is indicated by an even line. Both fighters are 29-years old and they already have a combined 46 professional fights. With that said, I expect Alves to be the aggressor and to have a decisive speed and power advantage over Flores. Flores is traditionally a featherweight and although he has a 3-inch height advantage, Alves is a career lightweight and is used to taking on bigger opponents. Flores won’t be able to keep Alves on the outside and he doesn’t have the firepower to win in a brawl. Take Alves to get the win.
