Friday Boxing Odds From Around The World – This Friday, February 3rd sees several boxing odds popping up at the sports books.
The fighter to watch is in Puerto Rico as undefeated Felix Verdejo (22-0) faces Nicaragua’s Oliver Flores (27-2-2) in defense of his WBO Latino title at 135 pounds. The fight card also counts on undefeated Christopher Diaz (19-0) as he faces Efrain Esquivas. Puerto Rico is an island with a proud boxing history but on January 14th when Gervonta Davis defeated Jose Pedraza for the IBF world title at 130 pounds, Puerto Rico was without a male world titleholder in boxing for the first time in a long time. One of these two men will be expected to grab a belt some time in 2017 and both Verdejo and Diaz are taking the next step towards a world title fight. The only world title holder of Puerto Rican descent anywhere out ther eon the boxing scene is women’s world title holder Amanda Serrano.
Ukrainian world titlist Vasyl Lomachenko has gained a lot of acclaim after seamlessly transitioning from a massive amateur career to the pros, and Lomachenko called Verdejo the most polished amateur he remembers facing. High praise indeed.
Down under in Australia, veteran Anthony Mundine (47-7) returns to face rival Danny Green (35-5). The pair of them are now in their forties and this is a rematch of a bot that took place more than ten years ago. Mundine took that first meeting by unanimous decision.
