Nery Versus Ruiz Garcia Highlights Saturday Action | Boxing Lines and Betting Picks

Boxing Events

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 2

Lourdes Juarez -333 vs Asley Gonzalez Macias +212

Boxing handicappers have every reason to believe Juarez beats Macias. The favored boxer in this match is not only 34-2, but hasn’t lost a bout in 8 years. 

Jaurez has won 31 of her last 32. She didn’t lose the thirty-second bout. That fight ended in a no contest. So Jaurez hasn’t lost in 32 fights.

Macias doesn’t have experience close to Juarez’s. But Lourdes has limited power. She’s knocked out just 4 of her opponents. Macias has a 14-2 record with 7 knockout wins. The underdog can end Juarez’s impressive winning streak. 

Boxing Pick: Asley Gonzalez Macias  

Elvis Torres +226 vs Carlos Sanchez Valadez -357

Underdog Elvis Torres heads into this off a ninth round TKO loss to rival Erick Encinia. Torres and Encinia first fought last October. Torres won that bout via split-decision.

In the rematch, Encinia decided not to leave it up to the judges. Torres believes he can bounce back versus excellent boxer Carlos Sanchez Valadez. The chalk in this lost his last bout to Pedro Campa. No doubt, Campa is a better fighter than Torres. The favorite bounces back from his first defeat. 

Boxing Pick: Carlos Sanchez Valadez  

Marcelo Esteban Coceres +666 vs Meirim Nursultanov -2500  

Coceres versus Nursultanov should be an entertaining bout. That doesn’t mean Coceres has any shot.

The massive dog has lost 3 of his last 5. Coceres did win his last bout but it was against a fighter with a 34-16 record. Nursultanov is 17-0. Not only is the favorite 17-0 but he’s won 10 of his bouts via TKO or KO. Look for a decent prop option before backing Meirim on the money line.  

Boxing Pick: Meirim Nursultanov  

Cobia Breedy -833 vs Sulaiman Segawa +418

At first glance, it sure looks as if chalk Cobia Breedy is in for a fight. Sulaiman Segawa has a good 13-3-1 record. But a closer look reveals that Breedy should dominate.

Cobia’s record is 15-1. The loss happened against well-regarded Tugstsogt Nyambayar.

These two fought last October 29. The ref ruled the bout a no-contest after Segawa had to leave the ring due to a cut from an accidental head butt. Breedy suffered zero damage and had been fighting the better competition. It’s tough to lay -833 but Segawa shouldn’t come close to taking the victory. 

Boxing Pick: Cobia Breedy  

Jesus Ruiz Garcia +386 vs Luis Nery -769

Saturday’s top boxing event pits Luis Nery against Jesus Ruiz Garcia. The underdog in this has a lot of experience. Ruiz Garcia is 43-9-5. Garcia has knocked out 31 of his opponents. 

All of Ruiz Garcia’s experience should help him last a while versus the favored Nery. 32-1 with 24 knockout wins, Nery bounced back from a loss to Brandon Figeuroa in a May 2021 bout to beat then undefeated Carlos Castro via split decision in February this year. 

It sure looks like Nery wins this. But Ruiz Garcia has a lot of talent and his last loss happened against Castro via majority decision in 2020. The dog can pull off the upset.  

Boxing Pick: Jesus Ruiz Garcia

Undefeated Guido Vianello takes on Jonathan Rice on Saturday night in what should be an excellent bout. Vianello versus Rice is one of Saturday’s headline fights on a day when YouTube boxer Olajide Olatunji also throws down. Check out Boxing Lines, analysis, and free picks for five bouts taking place on Saturday, Jan. 14.

Top Boxing Events
  • When: Saturday, Jan. 14

Thomas Oliveira +644 vs Olajide Olatunji -1666

Olatunji, known as KSI to his fans, was supposed to take on mixed-martial-artist Dillon Danis. KSI last fought in August where he beat two fighters: YouTube rival Swarmz and Luis Pineda. 

On Saturday, Olatunji takes on Thomas Olievera. Known as FaZe Temperrr, there’s some reason to believe the underdog in this gets it done. 

Temperrr has a decent 2-1 record for an amateur. Not only that, but he trains as hard as KSI. Also, Olievera is 4 inches taller, weighs more, and has an inch reach advantage. 

Sure, KSI should win. But the odds discount Olievera’s advantages. Temperrr has a much better shot than the odds imply.    

Boxing Pick: Thomas Oliveira

Edwin Rodriguez +290 vs Floyd Diaz -476

American Floyd Diaz has a nice 8-0 record with 3 knockout victories. Diaz hopes to push the record to 9 when he throws down against veteran Edwin Rodriguez on Saturday.

Rodriguez is 11-6-2 with 5 knockout wins. Edwin last fought in 2021, which puts him at a disadvantage to win this. If Rodriguez is at the top of his game, he will out box his odds. 

But there’s no telling Edwin’s shape. So although Diaz is a slight underlay at his odds, backing Floyd is the way to go.  

Boxing Pick: Floyd Diaz  

Abraham Nova -116 vs Adam Lopez -119

Abraham Nova versus Adam Lopez projects as one of this weekend’s most competitive matches. Nova last fought in June 2022. Abraham lost the bout but it was against well-regarded Robeisy Ramirez. 

Adam Lopez is 16-3-1 with 6 knockout wins. Lopez beat William Encarnacion via unanimous decision in a bout that happened last May.

When odds dropped Lopez was more of a favorite. Late money has rolled onto Nova. But Ramirez exposed a few flaws in Abraham’s game. The slight chalk remains the choice. 

Boxing Pick: Adam Lopez 

Stephen Shaw -166 vs Efe Ajagba +120

Favored Stephan “Big Shot” Shaw is undefeated with an 18-0 record. Shaw has won 13 of his bouts via stoppage.

But although Shaw is undefeated, he’s a 3-year-old veteran up against a 28-year-old boxer with a single loss. Efe Ajagba lost to Frank Sanchez in 2021.

Last year, Ajagba bounced back with a fantastic victory over Jozsef Darmos. Efe beat Darmos via second-round technical knockout. No doubt, Ajagba is one of the toughest fighters Shaw has ever faced. Backing the dog makes sense. 

Boxing Pick: Efe Ajagba 

Jonathan Rice -136 vs Guido Vianello -101

Favored Jonathan Rice is 15-6-1 with 10 knockout victories. Rice has won his last 2 fights. Both bouts were against Michael Polite Coffie.

On Saturday, Rice takes on 10-0-1 Guido Vianello. The slight dog has won 9 of his bouts via stoppage. Vianello, no doubt, has what it takes to win this. 

Rice hasn’t faced power like Vianello’s in a while. Guido is the pick.  

Boxing Pick: Guido Vianello

Artur Beterbiev owns three of boxing’s light heavyweight division belts. Beterbiev would like nothing more than to grab the fourth. But before Artur can face off agianst Dmitry Bivol for the WBC Light Heavyweight Championship, he must get by Anthony Yarde in Yarde’s backyard on Saturday. Check out analysis and a free Boxing Betting pick for Yarde versus Beterbiev as well as four other of Saturday’s top boxing matches.

Boxing Events

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 28

Artem Dalakian -147 vs David Jimenez +106 | WBA Flyweight Title

  • London, England – 3:00 pm ET on ESPN+

Dalakian versus Jimenez should be a fantastic matchup. Artem is the slight favorite because he’s got a 21-0 record. 

Not only is Dalakian undefeated but he also has 15 stoppage victories. Of those 15 stoppage wins, 13 were via technical knockout and 2 were via straight up knockout. 

Jimenez is 12-0. David has 5 knockout wins, 3 technical knockout victories, and a referee technical decision victory. Jimenez last fought in July 2016. 

Dalakian’s last bout was November 2021. Not only that, but this is Artem’s first fight outside of the Ukraine. Backing Jimenez makes sense. 

Boxing Pick: David Jimenez  

Anthony Yarde +430 vs Artur Beterbiev -833 | WBA, WBO, IBF Lightweight Titles

  • London, England – 3:00 pm ET on ESPN+

For sure, Yarde has skill. Anthony uses his feet well, moves in and out of trouble, and can throw with both hands.

But although Yarde is a skilled boxer, he’s in trouble. Artur Beterbiev is 18-0 with 18 knockouts for a reason. Beterbiev doesn’t just have power. He wins angles so that he can throw his most powerful shots.

Yarde also tends to leave his hands under his chin, which is a recipe for disaster. Beterbiev will land an overhand right or left that ends Yarde’s night early.  

Boxing Pick: Artur Beterbiev 

Oscar Collazo vs Yudel Reyes

  • Inglewood, CA – DAZN

Collazo was supposed to face Wilfredo Mendez. But Mendez suffered an injury a couple of weeks back, which is why when Oscar steps into the ring on Saturday, he’ll take on Yudel Reyes. 

The underdog in this bout has an excellent 15-1 record. The knock against Reyes is that this is his first bout stateside. But if you can look past that issue, he’s good enough to challenge Collazo.

Oscar is 5-0 with 3 technical knockout wins. No doubt, he’s going to attract a ton of action. For sure, the likely favorite can win this. Backing Reyes, though, makes sense. 

Boxing Pick: Oscar Collazo 

Floyd Schofield -2500 vs Alberto Mercado +752

  • Inglewood, CA – DAZN

Alberto Mercado has a decent 17-4-1 record. However, Mercado has only stopped 4 of his opponents. That’s a huge red flag for those looking to back the underdog.

Floyd Schofield is one of the sports up and comers. 10 of Schofield’s 12 victories have come via stoppage. Floyd has knocked out 6 of his opponents, has won 3 via TKO, and has a referee technical decision victory on the record. Schofield ends Mercado’s night early. So, look for a knockout prop. 

Boxing Pick: Floyd Schofield  

Alexis Rocha vs Georgie Ashie 

  • Inglewood, CA – DAZN

Rocha was supposed to fight Anthony Young, but Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya’s boxing outfit, replaced Young with George Ashie. Once oddsmakers change the line, Alexis Rocha might be more than a -5000 favorite. 

Does Ashie have any chance of upsetting Rocha? Ashie is 33-5-1 and has yet to fight outside of his native Ghana. 

Ghana has terrific gyms. But Rocha is a legit welterweight title contender. So, no, Ashie doesn’t have much chance. Look for a knockout prop before accepting what’s likely to be -5000 or worse odds. 

Boxing Pick: Alexis Rocha
