Oscar Valdez vs. Emmanuel Navarrete Odds
Valdez at -165 is a slight favourite. (You have to bet $165 to win $100) whereas Navarrete is the +125 underdog (win $125 on a $100 bet). While some observers believe this is a 50-50 fight, I think Valdez has an advantage over 60-40, which means his moneyline might not be valuable enough for me. But I’d pick Valdez who stopped at +350. If I were to pick Navarrete, I’d probably win him by a +300 decision.
If you are looking for a fun parlay. for boxing this weekend (And this is just for entertainment purposes) I might take Valdez to beat Navarrete at -165, Anthony Joshua stop Robert Helenius at -400, and Gary Ann. Tuann Russell stops Kent Cruz at -350 if they all reach their target. You will get a profit of $158 for betting $100. Actually, that might not be worth it.
Oscar Valdez vs. Memories of Emmanuel Navarrete
Valdez’s career has had some ups and downs, but certainly ups and downs. His only defeat was a wide loss against Shakur Stevenson in 2022, and he hasn’t performed. He was consistent in his victories, but Valdez (31-1, 23 KOs) also had key moments in beating Miguel Berchelt, Robson Conceicao and Scott. Quickg Valdez is not on the same level as Stevenson. But he is still world class.
Navarrete (37-1, 33 KOs) is a fighter to watch. And he’s very successful at 126 pounds, but I wonder if he’ll be effective at 130. In his first junior lightweight appearance in February, he was knocked out by Liam Wilson. before finally stopping him in ninth place to win the championship. It’s safe to say that Valdez is better than Wilson to some degree. Two key Dogbae came and although his resume is not as strong as Valdez’s. But he was still a dangerous fighter.
Oscar Valdez vs. Emmanuel Navarrete Prediction
Valdez faced better competition than Navarrete in their careers. And he’s been a full-fledged 130-pound fighter since 2019. Navarrete is expected to be aggressive. And perhaps he was leading the scorecard throughout the first half of the fight. But I like the power of Valdez in beating Navarrete. And I think he should have scored in stoppage time, say Valdez by TKO in 10.Thai round.
