ODDS & PREDICTIONS OF BIG WEEKEND FIGHTS
Saturday, December 11, 2010
Emerald Queen Casino, Tacoma, WA
(Showtime) Yonnhy Perez (20-0-1, 14 KOs) vs. Joseph Agbeko (27-2, 20 KOs) (IBF 118 lb. belt) Odds/Prediction: Perez 11-5. Rematch here as Perez dropped Ghanian fighter in UD 12 title grab. Go with Perez here, but not with anything more than beer and pizza money, $110 to win $50 on the Mexican to retain. Agbeko did beat Vic Darchinyan UD in July 2009.
Vic Darchinyan (35-2-1, 27 KOs) vs. Abner Mares (20-0-1, 14 KOs) Odds/Prediction: Vic 9-5. As mentioned Vic licked in 2009, and of course KTFO on 7-7-07 by Nonito Donaire. Idea is to build Vic back up, unbeaten Mares will make him work. I like Abner’s style.
AMIR KHAN OR A MERE CON?
Mandalay Bay Casino, Las Vegas, NV
(HBO) Amir Khan (23-1, 17 KOs) vs. Marcos Maidana (29-1, 27 KOs) (WBA 140 lb. title) Odds/Prediction:
HBO POSTER BOY ORTIZ FACES NON-PUNCHER PETERSON
Lamont Peterson (28-1, 14 KOs) vs. Victor Ortiz (28-2-1, 22 KOs) Odds/Prediction: Ortiz 2-1. HBO poster boy Ortiz looks to be in winning position here. DROPPING $400 TO WIN $200.
Joan Guzman (30-0-1) vs. Jason Davis AKA Willie Standup (loser of six straight, three KOs) SURZPRISED Nevada Commission guy Keith Kizer let this one go. KK, could ya’?
(FOX Sports) Juan Rosas (32-5, 26 KOs) vs. Cristian Mijares (40-6-2, 18 KOs) (IBF 115 lb. title) Odds/Prediction: Rosas 3-1. Trying to rebuild Mijares after three straight losses, including KO by Vic Darchinyan, it probably ain’t happening.
IF MONTIEL WINS “WORK” FIGHT IT’S NONITO DONAIRE IN FEBRUARY
Fernando Montiel (43-2-2, 33 KOs) vs. Eduardo Garcia (21-5-1, 24 KOs) Odds/Prediction: Montiel 12-1. Garcia=lunchmeat!
