It makes sense that the betting in this match is so tight because it’s such a tight matchup. Curtis is going to try to bang on the inside with Buckley and get shots to the body to show him down. Buckley has a good speed advantage and would be best served doing damage from the outside and forcing Curtis to commit to following him. It’s an appealing stylistic matchup that should go to the cards where Buckley will do enough to earn a split decision.
