- Live Stream: DAZN
Eva Wahlstrom vs Terri Harper
- WBC Women’s Junior Lightweight Title – 10 Rounds
Although Eva Wahlstrom is 39-years-old, she can hang with younger opponents. Wahlstrom has a sweet 23-1-2 record. Her opponent on Saturday, Terri Harper, is 9-0 with 5 knockouts. Harper hails from the United Kingdom. She’s the up and comer. Terri gets to Eva late in this bout.
Boxing Betting Pick: Terri Harper
Kid Galahad vs Claudio Morrero
- IBF Featherweight Eliminator – 12 Rounds
This is Kid Galahad’s first fight since losing a split decision to Josh Warrington last June. Galahad has a nice 26-1 record. Claudio Morrero is 24-3 with 17 knockouts. 2-of-3 losses happened in recent bouts. But those losses were to Tugstsogt Nyambayar and Jesus Rojas. Morrero forces the Kid to rethink his future.
Boxing Betting Pick: Claudio Morrero
Kell Brook vs Mark DeLuca
- Junior Middleweights – 12 Rounds
Mark DeLuca has a nice 24-1 record. He faces a top-class boxer in Kell Brook on Saturday, though. Brook has faced Errol Spence Jr. and Gennady Golovkin in 2 of his last 4 bouts. He should handle DeLuca.
Boxing Betting Pick: Kell Brook
Saturday, Feb. 8th – Showtime
- Where: Allentown, PA
- TV: Showtime
- Live Stream: Showtime
Jaime Arboleda vs Jayson Velez
- WBA Junior Lightweight Eliminator – 12 Rounds
Jaime Arboleda has moved his way up the rankings. The 25-year-old lost a bout in 2017. Since then, he’s won 5 in a row. Jayson Velez has the experience. But Arboleda is hungry. Back the younger, eager, fighter.
Boxing Betting Pick: Jaime Arboleda
Guillermo Rigondeaux vs Liborio Solis
- WBA Bantamweight Title – 12 Rounds
When will 39-year-old Guillermo Rigondeaux slow down? Rigondeaux knocked out Julio Ceja in his last. Liborio Solis is 30-5-1. He will fight hard. But let’s not kid ourselves. He has just 15 knockout wins. Rigondeaux figures to run circles around Solis. So, yes, the Jackal will slow down at some point. It won’t be on Saturday.
Boxing Betting Pick: Guillermo Rigondeaux
Gary Russell Jr. vs Tugstsogt Nyambayar
- WBC Featherweight Title – 12 Rounds
Tugstsogt “King Tut” Nyambayar is no joke. He’s 11-0 with 9 knockouts. But on Saturday, he battles a top-class featherweight. With that being written, Tugstsogt boxes. He sets up his power shots with a decent jab. He’s got really good footwork. He also has a massive height and reach advantage over Russell Jr. King Tut can take the title on Feb. 8.
Boxing Betting Pick: Tugstsogt Nyambayar
