Randy's boxing and timing is too technically "on point" to really allow Rich much in terms of getting the fight into a tradeoff on the feet, thus allowing Rich to use his power and if it gets into the clinch and into grecco world, I think Rich'll suffer from where Randy's wheelhouse is and I just think Randy is more comfortable in more areas than Rich is at the moment.
I actually invision this fight going eerily similar to Randy/Tito, in regards to Rich being a pretty solid wrestler, but nowhere near Randy and I see him getting grinded on and rushed. If Rich stays away, I think he can catch Randy, but I don't think his striking is great enough to outpoint Randy for all three rounds without succumbing to the takedown or clinchwar.
