I agree, I can't think of a better fight.

This is class, I'm gonna go with Petrosyan, I'm just so impressed with what I've seen of this guy.

I'm still going with Artur. Dudes got strength, speed and some serious skill. Plus he's been getting better with each fight.

Artur has the better hands and Petrosyan has the better kicks. Artur is going to need to be smart because Petrosyan is very good at cutting off the ring and forcing you to go into his power.
