Canelo vs GGG The Trilogy Undercard
- When: Saturday, Sep. 17
- Where: T-Mobile Arena, Las Vegas, NV
- TV / Streaming: DAZN PPV
Marco Castro -5000 vs Kevin Montiel +808
Massive underdog Kevin Montiel is 6-1-2 with 3 knockout wins. The dog heads into this after having fought most of his bouts in his native Mexico.
Marco Castro has a 7-0 record with 5 knockout wins. Castro is one of the up and coming super featherweight boxers. He will continue to shine versus fighters like Montiel until building a nice enough record to take on a top ranked boxer. Look for a knockout prop before accepting the -5000.
Boxing Pick: Marco Castro
Diego Pacheco -5000 vs Enrique Collazo +808
Enrique Collazo has a nice 16-2-1 record. Collazo has knocked out 11 of his opponents. He also has yet to suffer a knockout loss.
Huge chalk Diego Pacheco is 15-0. Pacheco has won 12 of his fights via knockout or technical knockout. There are a couple of ways to go here. We can decide Pacheco is a paper tiger and back the underdog. Or we can decide the dog suffers the first knockout loss of his career.
The second option sounds best. Look for a knockout prop on Diego Pacheco to end Enrique Collazo’s night early.
Boxing Pick: Diego Pacheco
Austin Williams -769 vs Kieron Conway +381
Kieron Conway has suffered just 2 losses during his career. The underdog in this has 18 wins and a draw to go along with the 2 losses.
Austin Williams is 11-0 with 9 knockout wins. Williams fought 17-0 Chordale Booker on April 30 this year. Williams beat Booker via first round technical knockout.
Conway is a good boxer. But he has zero power. Williams wins this via TKO or KO. So if you see a decent knockout prop, go for it.
Boxing Pick: Austin Williams
Ali Akhmedov -769 vs Gabriel Rosado +388
At one time during his career, Gabriel Rosado was one of the most feared super middleweights in the division. But since 2020, Rosado hasn’t fought well.
Gabriel has lost 3 of his last 4. Akhmedov is 18-1 with 14 knockout wins. This sets up as Rosado’s final bout. Ali should knockout the veteran warrior.
Boxing Pick: Ali Akhmedov
Jesse Rodriguez -2500 vs Israel Gonzalez +699 | WBC Junior Bantamweight Title
On paper, Israel Gonzalez has a shot. Gonzalez is 28-4-1 with 11 knockout wins. Also, Israel hails from Mexico and fighters from Mexico with the record Gonzalez has are no joke.
But on Saturday night, the underdog faces one of the top super flyweights in the world. Jesse Rodriguez is 16-0 with 11 knockout wins. This past June, Jesse stopped veteran Thai boxer Wisaksil Wangek in the eighth.
The champ wins for sure. Gonzalez has suffered a knockout loss. A KO prop bet backing Jesse to end Israel’s evening before round 12 makes sense.
Boxing Pick: Jesse Rodriguez
