this is a good step up for Nelson to test himself. Pyle is a gamer and can't be counted out.

I see Gunnar getting another win here but, Pyle is definitely going to be a tough task

Good matchmaking. If Gunnar can beat Pyle he'll be a couple of fights away from a title shot. I like Pyle but I'd like to see Gunnar continue his streak.

Really want to see Pyle continue his career resurgence here. It's a tough fight for both men.

I like this fight. Not going to be an easy one for either guy. Solid matchmaking. Glad to see they are giving Gunnar tougher opponents each fight, but not rushing him into top ten fights and what not.
