Spence vs. Bundu and Hardy vs. Vincent this Sunday
August 19, 2016
Undefeated rising star Errol Spence Jr. continues on his route to earn a world title shot and this Sunday, August 21, 2016 he takes on Italian veteran Leonard Bundu in a 147-pound world title eliminator at the Ford Amphitheater, Coney Island, New York, USA, the winner of this fight gets the right to challenge IBF champion Kell Brook.
Former Olympian, Errol Spence Jr. has 20 professional wins, 17 of them via knockout representing an 85% KO ratio, while his contender, Leonard Bundu accumulates 33 wins (12 by KO), 1 loss and 2 draws, his KO ratio is of 33%. A younger, stronger, taller Spence is of course a big favorite to win with odds of -8500, an entertaining fight to watch between a southpaw and and an orthodox, but certainly not an attractive fight to bet on at these odds; stick with prop betting on this one.
Women boxing taking relevance
The co-main event to Spence vs. Bundu features women boxing, with Brooklyn’s own Heather “The Heat” Hardy, facing Shelly Vincent from Providence, Rhode Island for the vacant WBC International female featherweight title; this fight is expected to steal the show, both this fighters are undefeated, Hardy has 17 wins while Vincent 18, Hardy has the height advantage and is also the stronger puncher with a 22% KO Ratio vs. Vincent’s 6%. New York vs. New England, the longtime rivalry is just exacerbated with their personal rivalry that goes back to 2012 when Vincent starting calling out Hardy and discrediting her skills and ability. Hardy and Vincent will finally settle their issues in the ring.
Betting on Heather Hardy vs. Shelly Vincent is certainly an interesting bet. Hardy is more of a boxer while Vincent is a brawler, the fight promises great action. I expect Hardy to win by unanimous decision.
