This Saturday, we have an interesting event, and we are traveling to the Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Japan, to witness an exciting title match which takes place as the co-main event.
This will be a short event, as only 6 fights will be taking place, but 3 of them have titles on the line, including our main focus, a fight for the WBC, and WBA World Light Flyweight Titles.
We are eager to see Kenshiro Teraji, who fights at home to defend his belt against a late replacement opponent in Anthony Olascuaga, an undefeated rising talent who was swapped from another fight to replace Jonathan Gonzalez.
This bout should be exciting but may not be as competitive as the former encounter could’ve been, however, things are not set in stone and everything will be on the line on Saturday.
Saturday, April 8th at 4:00 am ET at the Ariake Arena in Tokyo, Japan
(Estimated) 6:00 am ET
Kenshiro Teraji -1800
Anthony Olascuaga +800
Where To Watch:
Why Bet on Kenshiro Teraji?
The scene was all set for a juicy unification bout, with Kenshiro primed to defend his WBC and WBA Belts against WBO Champion Jonathan “La Bomba” Gonzalez. But then… a bombshell, after Jonathan contracted viral pneumonia and had to postpone.
The rush was on to find someone to take his place, fight hard and be a creditable challenger for the formidable Kenshiro.
Ironic, because former champion Hekkie Budler had agreed to a step-aside clause, so Kenshiro and Jonathan could duke it out to decide the divine right of triple kingship and he’d be first in line to fight the winner for the armful of belts.
Why Bet on Anthony Olascuaga
The solution to the muddle arrives in the form of in-form Anthony “Princesa” Olascuaga.
Kenshiro was training and lining up sparring partners, preparing for Jonathan, who is a short “squat in your face” southpaw.
Anthony is more upright and fights out of a conventional stance. Jonathan is a swarming fighter who likes to get in close to achieve his body of work.
Olascuaga is a stylist and a punch picker, rather than an outright fighter.
He will also be mindful concerning the history of upsets littering boxing, wrought and brought but seldom sought when opponents are changed at almost the last minute.
This is a career gambit and potentially the opportunity of a lifetime for WBC #15 Anthony. But it would be patently untrue to say he’s got nothing to lose rather than everything to gain.
Final Betting Analysis – Kenshiro Teraji vs. Anthony Olascuaga
Kenshiro is a seasoned, versatile brilliant boxer who built a record of 20-1, 12 KOs. He is a two-time champion who has fought the cream of the crop.
If he swiftly and painfully dispatches young Anthony, who at 24 is seven years younger, it will be a significant setback and blemish on a fledgling career sheet.
This fight between Anthony and Kenshiro is a need must patch up the patchwork.
The show must go on and Anthony has intrepidly stepped up. We do believe that “Princesa” can bring a show, but we do not think that he will be able to beat Kenshiro, so we expect the champion to retain the belts.
Go for a victory for the locals this time. If you bet $100 at -1800 you could get $5.56 for a total payout of $105.56.
