Andre Ward mentioned on Max on Boxing this afternoon that Alex Saucedo has a new team and new style he wants to show off tonight. To me that means the boxer wants to work on some things and get rounds in and it could go long or even the distance, so I'll take a chance at plus money:
Alex Saucedo/Sonny Fredrickson Over 8½ (+131) $100.00 for $131.00
Shit forgot to post my last few plays. Went 2-1 last week, felt like it shoulda been a sweep w/ Pedraza fight ending itd but whatever. Never seen that ref review before that ruined the flow of the fight.
Had Lopez as a nice dog a moment ago. Squeaked by w/ a SD but I'll take it. Now have Zepeda itd for a unit.
I wonder where Zepeda goes from here. He's a good lil fighter, gave Ramirez fits, beat Pedraza. He's legit, hoping he gets another shot at a decent opponent. Him vs Baranchyk would've been fun. If that fight actually comes thru next time I'll be looking forward to that one. Baranchyk is always up for fun fights and I think Zepeda will oblige.
I have a unit on Forrest itd +470 but not confident. He's largely untested but Takam is old and has a ton of mileage. They're hw's so you never quite know w/ these dudes, and I like Forrest's left hand. Maybe a shot at a ko here but Takam is the much classier fighter in general. Prime for prime it's Takam all day but I'm hoping he's aged enough to get caught by the younger guy w/ more power. Over 4.5-1 is good enough for a bet for me but like I said, not very confident.
