Connecticut is host to what is rapidly becoming an annual boxing event. Boxcino is a tournament where junior middleweights square off in single elimination fashion. The Mohegan Sun is host to it and is slated to start at 9PM EST and broadcast on ESPN2. Here are the some of the participants for this evening’s festivities.
- Brandon Adams (14-1, 9KO)
- Mookie Penarvis (17-4-2, 6KO)
- Vardan Gasparyan (14-3-5, 8Ko’s)
The marque matchup in this one has to be Brandon Adams vs Alex Perez. Does Alex perez at +350 have any sort of value here? We will examine this as well as peek into what last year’s tourney winner is doing now in this edition of APEX Boxing Betting.
Experience at Going Deep
Last year, Brandon made it all the way to the final before being dismissed by Willie Monroe. Willie has parlayed this win into a good year and is now ranked third in the junior middleweights by the World Boxing Association. Is this the sole basis for the price on Adams being so chalky?
Age and Weight
At 32 years old, Alex Perez needs whatever shots in the public light he can get. Normally he is welterweight but the seven pound differential was not enough to dissuade him from fighting here. In this six round fight, his age difference of seven years could come into play. With him going up in weight and Adams going down, will the power that Alex thinks he has be enough to stop this young bull in Adams?
Alas it will not be. Even though we respect Alex Perez and his drive at an advanced age, Brandon is even stronger than his chalk price indicates. Now we do not suggest just laying it on the line with him. However a parlay with some other action tonight could increase your payout. Take Adams in a parlay and enjoy Boxcino on ESPN2 this evening.
