Where To Watch:
Why Bet on Brandon Figueroa
Figueroa is a former WBC titleholder at 122 pounds and is looking to add more of that organization’s gold to his resume in a higher-weight category.
After a two-year reign at super bantamweight, he’s ready to shake up the boxing world and pile on even more accolades.
The former champ is relatively new to the division but Figueroa has a chance to make a big impact within his first couple of fights at this weight.
Also, he comes from a championship family as Figueroa’s brother is former WBC lightweight world champion Omar Figueroa Jr and he’s also trained by his father Omar Sr.
Why Bet on Mark Magsayo?
Magsayo is a former WBC featherweight world champion and looks to resume his seat on that throne within his next couple of fights.
He lost his gold to the reigning divisional kingpin and is seeking a redemptive rematch by securing a pivotal win here.
Both have strong attributes with Magsayo having a bit of an edge in terms of one-shot finishing power compared to Figueroa’s volume-heavy approach.
Final Betting Analysis – Brandon Figueroa vs. Mark Magsayo
Stylistically, both boxers are great counterpunchers with the perfect timing to throw vicious punches that stun their opponents.
But a huge difference between Figueroa and Magsayo is that the “Heartbreaker” likes to engage in close-distance exchanges, while “Magnifico” fancies a long-distance approach to execute his combinations.
The key for Figueroa in this bout is to cut off Magsayo in a corner and pour on his signature power punches from the pocket, while Magsayo’s path to victory is to keep his distance, move around the ring and maintain his distance from Figueroa to maximize the speed superiority against his American counterpart fully.
However, we believe the American will make good value of his home ground and win the fight.
If you bet $100 at Brandon Figueroa for -294, you’ll gain $34.01 for a total payout of $134.01.
