This coming weekend sees a lot of boxing, with a number of fights taking place across a variety of levels. Arguably the best looking of those fights comes on Friday when Japan's exciting, and popular, Yoshihiro Kamegai (26-3-1, 23) [亀海喜寛] faces off against Mexico's Jesus Soto Karass (28-10-3, 18) in what looks like a probably FOTY candidate.
The bout, which will be part of the Golden Boy “LA Fight Club” series, is one of the best match up for action fans and is great opportunity for gambling with the bout being one that has fans pretty split on the outcome, and of course it's a brilliant chance to use a betting site that is known for fast payouts.
The UK bookies have all made Soto Karass the betting favourite with odds ranging from ½ to 10/17, a good variation but all favouring the Mexican who has lost his last 2 bouts and is 3-3 in his last 6. Whilst he does have the better overall wins, victories over Andre Berto and Selcuk Aydin, it is almost 2 years since he was last seen in the ring and more than 3 years ago since the win over Aydin.
As for Kamegai he's best priced at a very good 15/8, though is typically available at 6/4. Notably he too is 2-2 in his last 4 bouts, but is 4-2 in his last 6. He has lost 3 of his last 4 bouts in the US, suffering defeats to Alfonso Gomez and Robert Guerrero, though has been active with a pair of bouts last year and it's likely he will look to make the most of that activity when he gets in the ring with Soto Karass.
