Expert Betting Tips
Marcin Tybura is a striker with nine wins via KO/TKO in his record. He also has very good BJJ. On a winning streak before Volkov stopped him, the veteran fighter seems to have found a second wind in his late 30s. The bookmakers don’t believe that Tybura will be the first to hand Alexander Romanov his first loss. Romanov’s last opponent, Sherman, was a similar fighter to Tybura. A knockout specialist, he was easily submitted by the Moldovan fighter who we believe will find a way to submit Tybura in this bout. Not bad fighting on his feet too, Romanov - who may not be at the heights of some of the fighters on the resume of Tybura - has proved that he is very difficult to defeat, since turning professional. We go for a Romanov win between Rounds 1 to 2.
