What coefficients do bookmakers evaluate the fight with?

If you look at the coefficients that are already set in the BC, then Jared Cannonier will have a clear chance of the outcome of the fight.

Forecasts for the meeting of the two favorites

The fight is expected to be full of interesting moments, but there are doubts about Kannonir's readiness for the meeting. The last victories of Jared were over opponents of average qualification. If there is a stronger fighter who showers Jared with a series of blows, then he can go into standby mode. However, if the athlete uses low-kicks, the situation may turn for the better. He works with his feet strongly and more confidently.

Gastelum knows how to hold kiki, and this is a serious argument in his favor. It is not necessary to take seriously the last defeats of the athlete, he is ready for this meeting. The level of combat in Gastelum is much higher than that of the opponent. The age difference also plays a significant role, and he exceeds Cannonier in technical skills.
