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

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.
