Close Odds for Till vs Hermansson
After the opening odds were released, bookies and writers were left scrambling with conflicting reports on who’s the favorite. We see this fight as bit of a toss up, with the edge going towards Till.
Although he’s technically coming off a loss to former champ Rob Whittaker, his stock actually went up. Till showed championship level IQ for five rounds, and in the end his volume and lack of diverse striking let him down.
Hermansson on the other hand bounced back from a brutal KO loss to Jared Cannonier in 2019, to submit Kelvin Gastelum in the first round back in July. Hermansson was one of the biggest underdogs on that card and proved the oddsmakers and fans wrong pretty convincingly.
Hermansson poses a serious threat to Till, in terms of unorthodox striking he won’t stand there and have a kickboxing bout. Till could be in for a long night if he doesn’t end Hermansson early in the fight.
