THE STATISTICS

THE LOWDOWN

Tim Means is desperate for some consistency after two losses to Belal Muhammad and Sergio Moraes but in truth, those decisions could have gone either way and he responded perfectly in his last fight against Ricky Rainey by putting him away in the first round.

Niko Price is out to prove he is still a future star. Despite a submission loss to Vicente Luque and a devastating knockout courtesy of Abdul Alhassan, he has looked brilliant and finished all but one of his 12 wins. This will be a real test of character to see how he responds to the knockout.

THE PREDICTION

Both men are extremely well-rounded and this will be a close fight as the stats suggest. They won’t waste any time in feeling each other out on the feet which could easily spill into a brawl.

Means will look to force the pressure with his usual high output and when he starts to land he builds more and more momentum. Price may be wise to take the fight to the ground but it is not in his nature to shy away from a stand-up battle.

This fight could go either way but Means’ durability could make the difference. He has only been knocked out once, all the way back in 2004, and a high output could set up a late finish.

Winner: Means via KO/TKO
