Top Boxing Betting Picks for the Week – February 10th Edition
Friday, Feb. 14
They don’t call him “Sweethands” for nothin’. 👊🏻👊🏻 @SweetHandsPlant defends his 168-lb title in his hometown of Nashville, TN on 2/15, live on FOX. #PBConFOX #PlantFeigenbutz pic.twitter.com/WCTHu2f04y— Ryan Hafey (@RyanHafey) February 1, 2020

Lightweights – 10 Rounds
Former top fighter Jorge Linares’ career is on a downslope. Linares has lost 2-of-4. He hopes to regain some of that lost magic on Friday against Carlos Morales. The 30-year-old has 2 wins and a draw in his last 3. Before that, he had lost 3-of-4. Jorge’s got a good chance to get his career back on track.
Boxing Betting Pick: Jorge Linares
Lightweights – 12 Rounds
Ryan Garcia is a top prospect. 19-0 with 16 knockouts. Only 21-years-old. Garcia’s so talented he’s got 2 nicknames, “The Flash”, and “Kingry”. Not sure what Kingry means. So, let’s just call him “The Flash”. Ryan should dominate Francisco Fonseca on Friday night. Fonseca has a nice 25-2-2 record. But Garcia’s got speed and power. It’s always a good idea to back the undefeated up-and-comer over the veteran.
Boxing Betting Pick: Ryan Garcia
- Where: Philadelphia, PA
- TV / Live Stream: Showtime
Junior Featherweight – 8 Rounds
Aleem is 15-0 with 9 knockouts. Lopez is 19-3-2 with 9 knockouts. Lopez is on a 3-match winning streak. But none of those 3 fighters were close to Aleem’s level. Expect Raeese to get the victory.
Boxing Betting Pick: Raeese Aleem
Lightweights – 10 Rounds
Mattice has a nice 15-1-1 record. He’s knocked out 11 of his opponents. Isaac Cruz Gonzalez is 18-1-1 with 14 knockouts. He hasn’t lost since 2017. Gonzalez is just 21-years-old. Although Mattice is a good fighter, Isaac’s career in the U.S. started in his last fight. He’s got much more upside than Mattice. Gonzalez beats his rival on Friday.
Boxing Betting Pick: Isaac Cruz Gonzalez

Welterweights – 10 Rounds
The good news is that Bryant Perella has a nice 17-2 record. The bad news is that Perella has lost twice in his last 5 bouts. Abel Ramos is 25-3-2 and hasn’t lost since 2018. He should handle Perella no problem on Feb. 15.
Boxing Betting Pick: Abel Ramos
IBF Super Middleweight Title – 12 Rounds
19-0 champion Caleb Plant looks to defend his title in Fox’s main event. German fighter Vincent Feigenbutz has a 31-2 record with 28 knockouts. But Feigenbutz has fought exclusively in Germany. He hasn’t come close to throwing down against a fighter of Caleb’s caliber. Plant wins this with ease.
Boxing Betting Pick: Caleb Plant
