Prediction

Matthew Jones
Who will win: Bivol or Castillo?

Castillo is 3 years older than Bivol, but I don’t think this difference is so critical. Lenin is doing well with stamina and will have enough strength for all 12 rounds.
Castillo has long arms, he works well with jabs from a distance, and can also catch an opponent on counterattacks. It is unlikely to be able to knock him out - the Dominican has a strong jaw: he lost twice in his career, both times by the decision.

I think that Bivol will be able to impose his manner of fighting on Castillo and win by unanimous decision.
