I think this a really great matchup because both of these guys are at the same point in their careers. Huge names in the sport with huge accomplishments but are trying to find their place in an evolving art.

It will be interesting to see Wandy's gameplan. I've heard he's trying to become a more technical striker. The flailing arms style has not been working for him (like it used to). He may have to go old school to beat Ace though. Franklin is a very good precise striker and will give Wand some trouble if he's able to keep the distance and avoid the power.
