The Mohegan Sun Casino in Uncasville has become one of the top fight locations during the pandemic, and it will host another big event on Saturday night, September 19. The Premier Boxing Champions event will have 3 big fights on the main card, with the Lubin/Gashua super-welterweight title eliminator fight sitting at the top of the list. While this is the fight that is getting all the press right now, the other two fights on the main card deserve some serious attention, too. We are going to take a closer look at all 3 fights and offer up some predictions as we go, along with their Boxing odds.
Premier Boxing Champions: Lubin Vs Gausha Betting Preview
Juan Carlos Abreu (+1300) Vs Jaron Ennis (-5000)
The first fight on the main card is a 10-round welterweight bout that might not go all the way, Juan Carlos Abreu comes into this fight with a 23-5-1 record. Of his 23 wins, 21 have come via KO, while he has yet to be knocked out in his pro career, although that might well change on Saturday night. He has gone 2-2 in his last 4 fights, but he is coming into this one on the heels of back to back wins. Ennis, on the other hand, is still unbeaten in his career, putting together a 25-0 career mark that includes 23 wins via KO. You have to go back to 2017 to find the last time he went the distance and I don’t think that streak is about to be broken.
Cobia Breedy (+475) Vs Tugstsogt Nyambayar (-700)
It’s another 10-round welterweight fight that we have next, with this one serving as a co-headline event. Cobia Breedy comes into this fight with an unblemished 15-0 career record. This is a fighter who tends to go the distance, though, with only 5 of his wins coming via KO. He did, though, TKO Titus Williams in his last fight. Nyambayar is coming into this bout with a little bit of a chip on his shoulder after losing his unbeaten record in his last fight, losing that one by UD. He is now 11-1 and he does have some power, with 9 of those wins coming via KO. I like Nyambayar to get the KO in the later rounds of this one.
Terrell Gausha (+350) Vs Erickson Lubin (-500)
It is perhaps a little interesting to see Terrell Gausha in this fight given that he has not been particularly convincing of late, going 1-1-1 in his last 3 fights, the latest of which was a draw against Austin Trout. Still, his 22-1-1 record is still very good indeed. This is a guy that can flash some power at times, with 10 of those wins coming by KO. He is going to need to be at his best against Erickson Lubin, who comes into this fight with a 22-1 record. His lone defeat came via KO back in 2017, but he has string together 4 wins since then. Lubin has some stopping power, with 16 KO in his career, a number I think he adds to on Saturday night.
