Danny Garcia makes for another heavily-favored welterweight star in action on Saturday.

Danny Garcia is a two-division titleholder and Adrian Granados is a perennial underdog — and a perennial loser, at least on the official records. That’s about how the oddsmakers see Saturday’s fight.

While I like this one and think it could be a very entertaining bout, the odds are, as usual, heavily against Granados (20-6-2, 14 KO), a fighter who has far more debatable than clear losses, but losses all the same.

Garcia (34-2, 20 KO) is favored between -1100 and -2500, with Granados listed between +700 and +900. While Granados is always competitive and always fun to watch, this is exactly the sort of fight where he’s also always come up short on the scorecards, too.

There are two big betting mismatches on the FOX-televised undercard, too.

Heavyweight Andy Ruiz Jr (31-1, 20 KO) makes his PBC debut after spending his entire career under the Top Rank banner, facing Russian vet Alexander Dimitrenko (41-4, 26 KO). Ruiz is between -1500 and -2500, with Dimitrenko between +775 and +1000.

The interim WBA super bantamweight title is on the line between Brandon Figueroa (18-0, 13 KO) and Yonfrez Parejo (22-3-1, 11 KO). Despite this being a world title fight, it’s really more of a sideways step for Figueroa, who has already beaten Oscar Escandon and Moises Flores, and knocked out both. Figueroa is between -2300 and -5000, with Parejo beween +950 and +1565.
