  • Where: Caribe Royale Orlando, Orlando, FL
  • TV / Streaming: Showtime

Ali Izmailov -2000 vs Israel Duffus +1000

  • When: Friday, Jan. 7

6-0 with 4 knockout wins, Ali Izmailov fights out of Detroit, Michigan but hails from Russia. The young light heavyweight faces an opponent he should easily dispatch of on Friday night. 

Israel Duffus is 20-7 with 3 knockout losses. 3 of Duffus’ losses have happened in his last 4 bouts. Izmailov dominates. 

Boxing Pick: Ali Izmailov 

Elvis Figueroa -500 vs Ryan Adams +350

  • When: Friday, Jan. 7

Ryan Adams has an okay 8-3-1 record with 6 knockout victories. Adams lost an 8-round bout via unanimous decision to Caleb Hernandez in his last. 

Hernandez brought a 6-0 record to the fight. Like Hernandez, Elvis Figueroa is undefeated. Elvis is 9-0 with 6 knockout wins. He’s knocked out his last 4 opponents. Adams has some skill, but Figueroa is on the fast track to the super middleweight top ten. He should make quick work of his opponent. 

Boxing Pick: Elvis Figueroa  

Shinard Bunch -500 vs Shyngyskhan Tazhibay +350 

  • When: Friday, Jan. 7

17-1-1 Shinard Bunch is one of the most prolific boxers on the planet. Bunch last loss in 2019. Since then, he’s won 15 fights with a no contest and a draw. 

The dude has no fear. Shyngyskhan Tazhibay could challenge Bunch, though. The underdog is 9-0. But Tazhibay has just 2 wins via KO or TKO while 15 of Bunch’s victories came via technical knockout or knockout. The chalk wins.   

Boxing Pick: Shinard Bunch   

Edwin de Los Santos +130 vs William Foster III -160

  • When: Friday, Jan. 7

13-0 with 9 knockout victories, William Foster III hopes to take the next step by beating fellow 13-0 boxer Edwin De Los Santos. 

Foster III is a good boxer. But he likes to throw right hooks. That could leave him open to a left counter from Los Santos. A single left hook might end Foster’s night because Edwin has won 12 of his bouts via KO or TKO. 

Boxing Pick: Edwin de Los Santos  

Otar Eranosyan +150 vs Starling Castillo -180 

  • When: Friday, Jan. 7

Undefeated at 10-0 with 6 knockout victories, Otar Eranosyan has a chance to pull off the upset. But the 28-year-old from Georgia, the country not the state, faces serious physical disadvantages in this fight.

Castillo is 4 inches taller and has a longer reach. The chalk is 16-0 with 12 knockout wins, including a second round KO of then 11-0 Miguel Contreras last July. Eranosyan will fight hard. But the underdog won’t overcome Castillo’s advantages. 

Boxing Pick: Starling Castillo

Carlos Arrieta +500 vs Luis Reynaldo Nunez -800

  • When: Friday, Jan. 7

On Friday night, 14-0 Carlos Arrieta faces the toughest opponent of his career. Luis Reynaldo Nunez is 15-0 with 11 knockout victories. 

The favorite has an inch on his opponent and can both box and brawl. Almost as important? Nunez has fought the much better boxers. Not only that, but Arrieta hasn’t fought since 2020 and when he did it was against a 13-24 opponent. Nunez wins via knockout. 

Boxing Pick: Luis Reynaldo Nunez
