That's how I see it as well.

This fight would be nothing shy of a pure chess match between two technical geniuses. It would be a real boxing expert's fight, as opposed to a match that would be appreciated by a more novice type of fan. I'm not a gambler, but even if I were, I'd have a real problem putting money down.
