We’ve got one world title fight tonight, plus a bunch of other notable names in action.
We’ve got three cards worth of action coming up tonight on US TV, with some competitive odds sprinkled in among the believed mismatches.
ESPN – Ito vs Herring
WBO 130-pound titleholder Masayuki Ito (25-1-1, 13 KO) is listed as of this writing as a slim favorite over challenger Jamel Herring (19-2, 10 KO), with odds perhaps closer than they should be, but certainly more in line with what was expected than early odds that had Herring, for whatever reason, as the favorite.
Ito is between -164 and -222 right now, with Herring between +125 and +175. Our staff is split on this fight, but the reality is that on paper, the odds really probably should be wider. Ito has proven himself in world title fights, while Herring has stumbled twice in steps up before. If Herring wins, it should be counted as a legit, genuine upset, not just a minor upset.
Jose Pedraza is between -582 and -625 for his co-feature fight with Antonio Lozada Jr, who is between +400 and +453.
DAZN – Haney vs Moran
This is basically, like, an OK ShoBox-level card overall.
In the main event, Devin Haney (21-0, 13 KO) is the massive favorite, with lines between -3700 and -10000 for the lightweight prospect. Opponent Antonio Moran (24-3, 17 KO) is listed between +1275 and +2300.
Heavyweights Filip Hrgovic and Michael Hunter have similar odds. Hrgovic is between -5000 and -10000 against Gregory Corbin, who is between +1350 and +3600. Hunter is between -4762 and -10000 against Fabio Maldonado, who is between +1000 and +3600.
There is also a women’s 140-pound title unification on the show. Jessica McCaskill is favored, listed between -500 and -953, with Anahi Sanchez between +333 and +587.
FS1 – Trout vs Gausha
Veteran Austin Trout is the fairly slim favorite against Terrell Gausha in the main event on FS1. Trout is between -189 and -232, with Gausha between +150 and +185. Our staff has this one 3-1 for Trout.
Junior middleweight prospect Chordale Booker is between -727 and 0850 for his fight with veteran Wale Omotoso, who is between +450 and +587. Light heavyweight Ahmed Elbiali is a huge favorite against Marlos Simoes. Elbiali is between -5000 and -10000, with Simoes at +1100 to +3600.
