2015 could end with a bankroll explosion for boxing bettors. Now it might not be on the Mayweather bout but there are plenty of high quality upset opportunities available. We will look at one of those. Also, are the plans finalized for Floyd’s last fight. Finally, find out what is coming from Cuba that can be a boon to inner city boxing. All of this is on tap at APEX’s Boxing Betting for 8/11.
- Floyd’s opponent is in fact Andre Berto. Not only that but instead of being on free network television, it is a ppv. A cash grab to the end it seems with this mismatch.
- Adrien Broner tries to resurrect a career after the worst fight of his life. Even if he is stumbling at 3-2 in his most recent bouts, his name and exploits ensure at least one more nibble at the apple. Word has it that Khabib Allakhverdiev needs an opponent for his portion of the Junior Welterweight Belt near October.
Let My People Go
Cuba’s gates are now opened and it comes forth something that can save boxing. La Finca is the name they dub their sporting program. Many people look it as a model. Not in the elite sort of way but maximizing potential on a very limited financial status. It is built upon layers of experience among this insular island nation. Also this program has influences from the old USSR when their machine was dedicated to Olympic glory. So now the inner cities can glimpse for themselves another method of producing champions on a shoe string. Powerhouses like Yuriorkis Gamboa and Odlanier Olis have Olympic Gold medals as well as many World Amateur Championships to their credit because of La Finca.
Our Free Pick involves an 8/29 fight between Leo Santa Cruz and Abner Mares at the Staples Center. This featherweight fight will have Mares taking advantage of Santa Cruz. The reason is simple.
