Brooklyn Welcomes Spike TV for Big Friday Fights 5/29


Spike TV Comes to the Rescue

A component to all your parlays comes on Friday.  The ultimate tomato can takes the ring to take on Amir Khan.  Cris Algieri was cultivated and nurtured to a 20 – 0 record so that he can face Manny.  Now while his record is still respectible he takes the ring against Amir.  There is zero chance of an upset as Khan, Canelo, and GGG are the future of boxing.  These three fighters are legitimate and boxers like Algieri are levels below him.  Great to see Spike TV getting to broadcast this for free but this is nothing more than a glorified sparring match.

Under Card Value for Wagering and Entertainment

Javier Fortuna (27-0-1, 20KO’s) takes on Costa Rican whirlwind Bryan Vasquez (34-1, 18 KO’s) on the opener for Spike TV at 9pm.  Movement has been on Vasquez as the line stands equal at -110.  Bryan’s style is aggressive as he features a potent uppercut.  The main weakness on his part is a tendency to open up a bit which could lead to him being clocked like he did in his one loss.  Javier has speed and power in both hands.  With this natural talent, he relies on this too much at the expense of some footwork and hand placement problems.

The promise of this fight is that the weaknesses of both fighters can be exploited by their opponent. Since both work being aggressive, look for a decisive result as their will be too many chances.  Our money will go to Costa Rica in this one.  Look for Vasquez to triumph and continue the impressive roll he has been on.  All eyes go to Brooklyn this Friday.  The action starts at 9PM so get in those wagers right away at America’s Bookie.  We will see you next time here at APEX Boxing Betting with a review of these fights.
