This Saturday, July 8th, we are getting ready to make a trip to the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas, to see the WBA Regular Welterweight Title go on the line on what we expect to be a great fight night.
With 7 clashes in this fight card, and two of them being title bouts, we are eager to see it all take place, but it all goes down to the main event.
The headliner of this event will be placing two undefeated fighters under the lights, as the current champion, Eimantas Stanionis (14-0-0), defends his belt against the American challenger, Vergil Ortiz Jr. (19-0-0), and only one will come out as both a champion and an undefeated fighter when the night ends.
Let’s get into the details of what we expect to be an interesting bout to keep all fans on the edge of their seat.
Saturday, July 4th at 8:00 pm ET in the AT&T Center in San Antonio, Texas
Ring walks time:
(Estimated) 10 pm ET
Eimantas Stanionis +280
Vergil Ortiz Jr. -350
Where To Watch:
Why Bet on Eimantas Stanionis?
Stanionis has been making waves in the division with his impressive performances. He is a 5’8” orthodox boxer from Lithuania, with 9 KOs thus far.
In his amateur career, Stanionis won gold at the 2015 European Championships at welterweight. He is only 28 years old and a handful of years into his professional career.
A win for him this weekend can change his life and give him plenty of opportunity for big-money fights shortly. One trend to look at is that he hasn’t finished anybody since 2020.
Why Bet on Vergil Ortiz Jr.?
Ortiz Jr. has been on an impressive run, stopping all 19 of his opponents so far. He is arguably the most exciting prospect in all of boxing.
The American-born is only at the age of 25 and has seemingly plenty of experience in the ring to fight at a high level. Ortiz Jr. was a 7-time national champion and won the 2013 junior Olympics. He was named the 2019 Ring Magazine Prospect of the Year.
The orthodox boxer-puncher is known for his undeniable punching power and has a 100% KO ratio. The Texas native is going to enjoy the home crowd as he makes the walk to the biggest fight of his life up to this point.
Final Betting Analysis – Eimantas Stanionis vs. Vergil Ortiz Jr.
On the technical side of things, this matchup is very interesting and for sure one of the best boxing matches you will watch this summer.
Stanionis is a very high-intelligence fighter with a granite chin, power, and very good defense. His opponent, Ortiz Jr., brings that “it” factor to the ring. He has the timing, hand speed, and power to knock out anybody he stands in front of. This is going to be his toughest test yet, but he has the pure talent to beat anyone.
The American is the A-side in this fight. He is the local kid that has superstar potential with the hype behind him and how he has been finishing fights. He has all the amateur accolades that can allow him to continue his winning ways at the championship level in the professional ranks.
However, we believe this is going to be a massive upset victory for the Lithuanian champion Eimantas Stanionis. This is a tough fight to pick because Ortiz Jr. is an absolute superstar in the making, but we believe the champion is going to be able to wear down and break apart his challenger in the ring.
Ortiz Jr. has shown to have trouble making 147 lbs, so the scales on Friday will be an interesting factor as well. But all in all, this just feels like the time for Stanionis. He is one of the best in the world, and he is going to prove it.
Go for a victory for the champion at +280. If you bet $100 at such odds, you could get $280 for a total payout of $380.
