I think Siver is being way overrated and Cub will win handily. Soti was boxing up Siver for like half of their fight he won't be able to handle Cub's hand speed.

Cub and his striking are far more overrated than Siver.

Cubs striking is really good as of late, esp his boxing. Siver is a beast at 145 as already said, but I think Cub has a speed advantage ans stops Siver early in the 3rd.

cub got dat power.. i think he will land eventually and put him away

Head-butting fists and KOing the air is not effective striking.

Yes it did. He lost because he was getting rocked every time he got touched not because Siver was outclassing him standing or out landing him.

Unless his offensive wrestling is a lot better than he's demonstrated so far.

Siver by stoppage.
I think Cub can hold his own striking here. He managed to stay out of trouble and beat Pearson. Not that that means he can automatically beat Siver, but I wouldn't be surprised to see Cub hold his own and pick up a win. He is looking strong at the moment.

The difference is that Cub pulled Pearson into a brawl, Siver will not brawl he will sit back and pick him apart

You said the same thing about the Pearson fight.

No idea why you love Sotiropolous so much that you delude yourself into thinking he boxes everyone up until he gets punched once.

Sotiropolous didn't even get rocked that much in that fight, he just failed a bunch of takedowns.
