In round 1: Dereck Chisora (+294) vs Oleksandr Usyk $100.00 for $294.00
Jesus that ko was nuts. Looked like it was heading comfortably to a decision and then bam. Live odds had LSC down to +150 from prematch odds of +500, so it was a very competitive fight until that sick ko.Ugh terrible night for me. Wasn't very good with the ufc card either. Just missed the under on the Inoue fight but the other two plays were square af. There goes my lil run. Whatever. What a ko by Tank tho. KOTY no doubt, imo.
Same here. I think he'll have to box perfectly for a full 12 to beat the very top guys in the division. Shame cw isn't more respected, he was made for that weight class. Some really good fighters there as well but I guess he's done as much as possible there. Like you said, Del Boy looked too big for him in there at times, which is concerning considering Del Boy is a gate keeper w/ a lot of miles on him compared to the AJ's/Fury's/Wilder's etc. of the division.Wondering how Usyk is gonna do against the big heavies after that, Chisora was kind of throwing him around at times
little sprinkle on maloney/franco goes to a draw.Took a shit price on Andrew Moloney in his rematch against Franco. Got him at +15x and now he's up to +165 at the same spot I got him on bm a day later. I don't love this play to begin with since Franco ended up putting a pretty hellacious beating on him during the latter stages of their first fight but I do like it for 1 or 1.5u play b/c Moloney did show a ton of heart and stayed in there despite busted eardrums and a concussion or whatever else he was dealing with. He survived the deep waters w/ Franco (altho barely) and lost a close Dec.
All that said, Moloney lost a close ud and he got off to a quick start against a guy in Franco who seems to be a slow one. That'll be another chance to rack up some big early rds and maybe he can avoid the onslaught later from Franco w/ a little more grace this time. I like him as a dog here. Probably will up to this to a 1.5u play and leave it there.
All I got now for boxing, still looking at the Bud/Brook fight trying to figure out if I think Bud stops him or not. Been going back and forth w/ my brother on that one lately..
