Final Richard Lartey vs Nathan Gorman Final Betting Analysis
Nathan Gorman has the heavier hands, which means Lartey must be careful about how he approaches this fight. Gorman expects Lartey to go after him the way Richard tried to in the Dubois fight. If Lartey does that, this fight could end after the first or second round because Nathan is a decent counter-puncher. Also, Gorman will hit Lartey with stinging uppercuts the way Dubois did.
Lartey moves well, though. If he can duck under the jab, he may have a shot to get inside. Once inside, Lartey can land powerful body punches. Lartey has the skills. The key for Richard is to maintain his composure and pick and choose his spots. Gorman will leave himself open during moments in this fight. If Lartey decides to go all out early, he’ll lose early. But if he takes his time, works inside, and manages to land a couple of decent shots, he can pull off the upset.
