Josesito Lopez (36-8, 19 KOs) vs John Molina Jr. (30-8, 24 KOs)
- Josesito Lopez (-357)
- John Molina Jr. (+250)
Molina is the underdog in this fight, but does offer some value for what should be a slugfest. He was an underdog in his last fight, but a betting favorite on boxing betting sites two fights ago. Lopez was the underdog in his fight earlier this year against Thurman, but is viewed as the favorite for this bout.
There’s a chance that these odds could go down as we get closer to the fight. I think Molina is worthy of a small flier as he does have a puncher’s chance.
Lopez vs Molina Jr. Preview
|Boxer||Josesito Lopez||John Molina Jr.|
|Record||36-8, 1 NC||30-8|
John Molina Jr. returned to the ring in February after not fighting in 2018. He took on Omar Figueroa Jr. and lost via unanimous decision. It was the 5th loss in his last eight fights. Before that, Molina last fought in December 2017 and defeated Redkach via 4th round knockout.
Unfortunately, Molina appears to be unable to defeat the top talent in whichever weight class he competes in. Molina has suffered losses to Figueroa, Crawford, Broner, Soto, and Matthysse all in the last 5 ½ years.
His bout against Matthysse was voted as the Fight of the Year in 2014 due to the war the two put on inside the ring. Molina brings that same tenacity and fearlessness every time he fights, which is why this bout against Lopez will be very entertaining for the fans.
Josesito Lopez is another all-action fighter just like Molina. However, he’s had a bit more success in recent years than his opponent. Lopez last fought in January and almost pulled off a big upset over Keith Thurman, but lost via majority decision.
Before the Thurman fight, Lopez had won three straight bouts and six of seven fights. Like Molina, Lopez has also lost to top-shelf talent as he’s suffered defeats to Thurman, Berto, Maidana, and Canelo Alvarez over the last seven years.
On his upcoming fight, Lopez had the following to say about Molina:
“I don’t underestimate John Molina Jr. I’ve seen him a lot throughout the years, just like I’m sure he’s seen me. We know each other quite well, so the fans are in for a good one. We’ve both proven we have the heart and the will, now we have to prove it against each other. It’s going to be an exciting fight. I’ve prepared for battle and I’m going to win. I’m ready to go through anything to get this victory.”
Who Will Get the Huge Win?
Both men need a victory on Saturday night, which makes this fight even more exciting. Not only will they bring their usual flare for violence, but they will also sprinkle desperation on top of it. With that said, I’m leaning toward Lopez to win this fight.
Josesito Lopez looked good in his bout against Thurman earlier this year and has gone 3-1 over the last 33 months. Molina has gone 1-2 over that same span. Like I mentioned above, Molina is worthy of a flier due to his puncher’s chance, but Lopez appears to have more left in the tank.
I like Lopez to win via unanimous decision in what will be an exhilarating in-ring battle.
Action packed warriors @JosesitoLopez vs John Molina Jr. will DEFINITELY be one the fights to watch on an already stacked #SpencePorter#PBConFOXPPV card Sept. 28. #LopezMolina ℹ️: https://t.co/2As12mnNRUpic.twitter.com/upWZWwoeCy

Mario Barrios (24-0, 16 KOs) vs Batyr Akhmedov (7-0, 6 KOs)
- Mario Barrios (-190)
- Batyr Akhmedov (+140)
Mario Barrios comes in as the betting favorite with odds as high as -190. However, some online betting sites currently list Barrios as low as a -164 favorite. It’s been at least four years since Barrios has been a betting underdog.
Akhmedov is the slight underdog in this contest with a line anywhere from +125 to +140. He doesn’t have the resume that Barrios does, but boxing pundits and sports betting sites believe this is a very close matchup. Both men offer betting value and will provide solid returns on investment.
Barrios vs Akhmedov Preview
|Boxer||Mario Barrios||Batyr Akhmedov|
The WBA ordered this fight to be made as they believe that these two are the top contenders for the vacant super lightweight title.
Barrios has more professional fights than his counterpart and has already won two bouts this year so far. Both of those fights ended in knockouts, which brought his career total up to 16 KOs. Seven of Barrios’ last eight fights have ended via KO/TKO.
The 8th fight saw his opponent’s corner throw in the towel before a knockout could take place. Barrios had knocked down Roman twice before the fight stopped.
Barrios knows that this fight is a stepping stone to bigger matchups if he can get the win. The undefeated 24-year old commented on the landscape of the division and his goals for after this weekend’s battle:
“I’m fighting for the WBA ‘regular’ world title and it’s going to get me that close to current champions, which to me is ultimately what I want. After the Taylor-Prograis fight, there’s only going to be two champions. If everything goes well the way we’re planning on it for my fight —not looking past Akhmedov — but I would love an opportunity with either the winner of Regis and Taylor or even a fight with Ramirez.”
Batyr Akhmedov is a former Olympic boxer having competed in the 2016 Olympic Games for Turkey. He turned pro two years ago and has been crushing his opponents ever since. Akhmedov has six TKO/KO victories in seven fights and looks to get his first world title on Saturday.
Akhmedov will make his third trip to the United States this weekend and is hoping to repeat his performance from his American debut last April when KO’d former title contender Ismael Barroso. He’ll be giving up size and reach to Barrios this weekend.
Who Becomes the WBA Champ?
Akhmedov is a southpaw fighter with serious power, which could present problems for Barrios. However, I like what I’ve seen from Barrios over the last few years. I’m more impressed with his in-ring talents than Akhmedov’s. This is going to be a great undercard fight. Unfortunately, there will be a loser.
With that said, I’m taking Barrios to win. I believe he’s a bit more polished of a fighter than Akhmedov and he has decent power as well. I’m taking Barrios to win via split decision in what should be a memorable bout. Both fighters offer betting value and are worthy of a wager.
“I may break his ribs in the first two rounds”…
WBC Super Middleweight Champion @Anthonydirrell and Former Champ @Benavidez300 come face to face 6 days before their title fight. pic.twitter.com/JulqrJFOx7
— FOX Sports: PBC (@PBConFOX) September 23, 2019
Anthony Dirrell (33-1-1, 24 KOs) vs David Benavidez (21-0, 18 KOs)
- Anthony Dirrell (+550)
- David Benavidez (-900)
The betting lines for this fight are all over the place. So, it comes down to which fighter you want to wager on. Currently, Dirrell has odds anywhere from +450 to +760. He’s an underdog for the first time in several years and offers a great return if you think he will win. Dirrell is worthy of a flier.
Benavidez is the favorite in this fight and has odds as high as -1250 and as low as -728. He’s been a betting favorite for at least the last four years now. There’s no value with Benavidez for this bout.
Dirrell vs Benavidez Preview
|Boxer||Anthony Dirrell||David Benavidez|
Dirrell comes in as the champ and has won six straight fights. This is the second time that he’s won the WBC title and he’s hoping not to lose it after one defense just like he did back in 2015. Dirrell had the belt but lost via majority decision to Badou Jack. That was the only loss of his lengthy career.
Dirrell is the more experienced fighter of the two as he has 14 more pro fights, but he’s also been in the ring with more top contenders and former champs that Benavidez has. Dirrell recognizes his opponent’s talent, but believes he will be victorious:
“This is going to be a good fight. David Benavidez is a warrior and I don’t take anything away from him. But I know that I have all the tools to beat him. He’s never fought someone like me. Everyone he knocked out, he was supposed to knock out. I have everything I need in my arsenal. I’m versatile. I can switch it up if I need to. If I need to sit in the pocket, I can. If I need to box, I can.”
Benavidez is a highly touted, very talented 22-year-old boxer who has seen the highs and lows of his success. In September 2017, Benavidez defeated Ronald Gavril via split decision to win the vacant WBC super-middleweight title. He rematched Gavril five months later and won via unanimous decision.
Online blackjack for real money usa. Unfortunately, his reign didn’t last long because he failed a drug test last September after testing positive for cocaine. Benavidez was stripped of the belt and suspended for four months. During his absence, Dirrell would go on to win the vacant WBC world title that’s on the line this Saturday night.
Benavidez returned to the ring in March and KO’d his opponent in the second round. It proved that the 22-year-old was refocused on his career and ready to fulfill his potential. That victory earned him a shot to win back the title he never lost and it lit a fire in him like never before:
“Me knowing that I never lost the belt to anybody, it’s kind of made me hungrier seeing someone else take my belt. There’s kind of a fire burning inside of me. It opened up an animal in me because I won’t stop until I get my belt back.”
Benavidez has looked good in training camp, which he says lasted about 3 ½ months. He’s focused on defeating Dirrell this Saturday and wants to become the first man to stop the champ. Currently, Dirrell has only lost via decision and has never tasted a KO/TKO.
Who Leaves the Ring as the WBC Champ?
This fight represents the old guard versus the new guard. Dirrell is still a talented fighter, but he’s going up against someone who’s younger, more athletic, bigger, and most likely better. This is a scenario where the young fighter dethrones the experienced champ and takes his place at the top of the mountain.
I believe that Benavidez is going to win this fight. I liked what I saw from him in his return this March. He seems to have learned from his mistakes and appears to be dedicated to getting his belt back. Dirrell is a respectable champ, but I think he will run into problems with Benavidez this weekend.
I’m taking Benavidez to reclaim his belt. As mentioned above, Dirrell is worthy of a flier at these odds. Most likely, Benavidez gets the split or unanimous decision win as Dirrell will prove too tough to be stopped inside the distance.
Errol Spence Jr. (25-0, 21 KOs) vs Shawn Porter (30-2-1, 17 KOs)
- Errol Spence Jr. (-800)
- Shawn Porter (+500)
Shawn Porter comes in as the underdog, which was a role he was in two bouts ago when he fought against Danny Garcia and won. In his last fight, Porter was the favorite over Yordenis Ugas. Porter’s odds range from +475 to +645.
Errol Spence Jr. has been a betting favorite for several years now. He’s an undefeated champion looking to capture another belt in his weight class. Spence’s odds are as low as -695 and as high as -1015 at online betting sites.
Porter is worthy of a small flier as he’s a veteran fighter and a champion as well. Spence doesn’t offer any value unless his odds miraculously fall to -300 or lower.
Spence vs Porter Preview
|Boxer||Errol Spence Jr.||Shawn Porter|
This fight is what makes boxing a great sport at times. It’s a contest where two champs look to unify belts and stake their claim as the best within their division.
Porter comes in as the sizable underdog and carrying the WBC welterweight title. He defeated Danny Garcia 12 months ago via unanimous decision to claim the vacant belt. He’s won four straight bouts since his loss to Keith Thurman 39 months ago.
Porter has the better resume in this showdown. He’s fought more top tier boxers than Spence has. With that said, Porter has been eyeing this fight since Spence first won the IBF title:
“There haven’t been too many fights as a professional that I’ve been this excited about. I was really excited about the Danny Garcia fight and I’m really excited about this one. Ever since Spence got a belt, I really circled this fight on my calendar. Preparation is the key. I think I have everything it takes to beat Errol Spence. I’m very confident and my team is confident in what I have to do on September 28. We’ll be ready.”
Let’s not forget that Porter held the IBF welterweight title back in 2013, but lost it to Brook in 2014. He’s competed for three different welterweight world titles in the last six years and is looking to recapture the IBF belt he once held.
Spence has never lost a fight in his pro career. And, he appears to get better every time he steps into the ring. He last fought against Mikey Garcia in March and put on a display of high boxing IQ. Spence used his size and reach advantage to nullify Garcia’s strengths and skills. Ultimately, Spence won a one-sided bout.
Three years after Brook won the title from Porter, Spence defeated him in the UK via 11th round KO. The victory announced that Spence was a legitimate fighter in the division. Since then, Spence has continued to shine against all challenges. He believes that he will once again rise to the occasion by defeating Porter on Saturday:
“It’s going to be a very exciting fight. Shawn is never in a boring fight and I always entertain. It will be a ‘Fight of the Year’ type fight because our styles mesh. Shawn Porter is a guy who tries to rough you up. That’s what he’s always done. With Yordenis Ugas he tried to box and he said he didn’t like that style. He said he is going back to his original style. If he brings that style to me, it’s going to be a great fight because I’m going to bring it right back to him.”
Who Walks out with Both Belts?
This is the question boxing fans, pundits and bettors are asking. Porter is going to push the action and pressure Spence like never before. He has the power and physical strength to make Spence’s night a miserable one.
Spence is the better overall boxer and technical striker between the two. He’s also the bigger fighter and should have the speed advantage as well.
This clash of styles is going to be awesome. I expect 12 rounds of entertainment and greatness. For me, I am going with Spence to win. I believe this fight will show another level of Spence’s skills that we have yet to see. He will withstand Porter’s pressure, power, outbox him, and take the decision victory.
I do believe Porter is worth a flier as he’s a solid champion that has the skills to win this fight. And, if you can get odds above +600 then you are definitely getting plenty of value. In what is being called a “50-50 fight” I’m taking Errol Spence Jr. to win this title unification bout, prove he’s the best welterweight, and go on to clean out the division.
Spence vs Porter Prop Bet
There are numerous prop bets for this thrilling fight. One of the most exciting props out there is the method of victory. 5Dimes offers the following boxing prop bets for Spence vs Porter:
Will Porter vs Spence Go the Distance?
- Yes (-175)
- No (+135)
Despite the knockout power that each man displays, these are two highly talented fighters that will push each other to the limits and see the fight go the full 12 rounds. As mentioned above, I see Spence winning this fight via the scorecards.
Of the betting options for this championship unification bout, this could be the one wager that offers the best value. Take the “Yes” option before the odds go up.
Method of Victory
- Porter wins inside distance (+1100)
- Porter wins via decision (+1050)
- Spence wins inside the distance (+155)
- Spence wins via decision (-160)
- Fight ends in a Draw (+2400)
Barrios Vs Akhmedov Odds Nfl Week 11
As mentioned already, I believe Spence wins this fight. So, let’s eliminate Porter’s betting options for this prop bet. The chances of Spence winning inside the distance are slim compared to winning via decision. At -160 odds, I really like the value for this option.
These two champions are going to put on a war inside the ring and that typically means a full 12 round affair. Spence wasn’t able to stop Mikey Garcia in his last fight and he was the bigger fighter. In this weekend’s bout, he’s slightly bigger but will have to endure Porter’s pressure and power.
The two champs will take a few rounds to feel each other out and another few to try and capture the momentum. Before you know it, we’ll be in the middle rounds and well on our way to going the distance.
If this was RD1 of #SpencePorter, how would you score it? @ErrolSpenceJr and @ShowtimeShawnP go at each other for over 3 minutes prior to their unification bout on Sept. 28 on #PBConFOXPPV: https://t.co/2As12m6ctkpic.twitter.com/XRexSz5CLw
— PBC (@premierboxing) September 24, 2019
Over/Under 1:30 of Round 10
- Over (-300)
- Under (+240)
This is an easy choice after the first two prop bets. It’s going to be the Over. I expect this fight to go the full 12 rounds, which means it will easily surpass the halfway point of Round 10. Look for Spence to take those last few rounds and win via decision. This prop doesn’t offer as much value as the other two.
Final Thoughts on Spence vs Porter
This PPV event has a solid undercard and a stellar main event. I’m looking forward to all three world title fights especially Spence vs Porter. This welterweight unification bout is going to be a “Fight of the Year” candidate as these two men show the world why they’re great champs.
The co-main event is going to be nearly as thrilling as the main event as Benavidez and Dirrell each try to hand their opponent a first stoppage loss. We could be seeing the beginning of a superstar in the making with Benavidez.
This PBC on FOX PPV card is oozing with entertainment and suspense, while also packing plenty of betting value into one night of great boxing action from Southern California. It’s a “can’t miss” event.
