There is no clear favorite in the upcoming fight between Russian Vadim Nemkov and American Corey Anderson. This was announced to RBC Sport by the former Bellator welterweight champion Andrey Koreshkov.

“It’s going to be an interesting fight. It’s hard for me to single out a favorite, because before their first fight, I thought that Vadim was the favorite. In that fight, before the oversight of Corey Andersen, Vadim was losing, I think. The fight didn’t go well for him then. This time, Vadim must take into account all the nuances and bad moments from the last fight and work on the mistakes. If Corey Andersen does not change, then Vadim will easily adapt to him. I find it difficult to say who is the favorite, I can’t name either one or the other, but I will root for Vadim, ”said Koreshkov.
