“Sugar” Shane Mosley looked sharp after a long layoff to outpoint top-20 contender Pablo Cesar Cano by scores of 115-113 on all three scorecards. Mosley vs Cano Fight Odds had Mosley as a 6 to 5 betting favorite. Mosley, 41, took a sound beating from #1 contender Canelo Alvarez 1-year ago but against Cano, 23, he was able to find his target with huge overhand rights and crunching left hooks. Cano showed a good chin and shook Mosley a few times with big left hands but he didn’t have enough speed to keep up. Cano faded down the stretch and ate too many big shots for a world-class contender. “Sugar” Shane looked very strong and wore down the young Mexican with debilitating body shots. Mosley improves to 47-8-1, 39 KO’s while Cano drops to 26-2-1, 20 KO’s . Wager on the Manny Pacquiao vs Brando Rios Fight Odds at BOVADA CASINO!!!!

This Saturday on Showtime Championship Boxing a blue-chip main event from the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City will fire off when Lamont Peterson scraps Lucas Matthysse at 141 Lbs. Lamont Peterson vs Lucas Matthysse Betting Odds have Matthysse at -220 moneyline on the Boxing Odds with 55% of the action on Peterson. Matthysse, 33-2, 31 KO’s, is regarded as the best fighter in the division since Tim Bradley moved North and Peterson, 31-1-1, 16 KO’s, is the #1 contender. It should be a helluva a fight so our boxing picks experts broke down the two fighters. Lamont Peterson vs Lucas Matthysse Betting Odds have Peterson at +180 Moneyline ( risk $1000 to win $1800) at BOVADA CASINO!!!!
Lamont Peterson: The bull necked, 5’9″ 72″, Peterson is a D.C. junkyard dog with more grit than style. Peterson could be classified as an aggressive boxer/puncher that prefers to do his work behind a peek a boo guard. Peterson has quick hands and above-average bang but his real strengths lie in his determination, bodypunching, chin and physical strength. His last time out of the gate, Peterson shook off some early rust to annihilate a huge puncher in Kendall Holt. Holt wilted under Peterson’s relentless pursuit after he shook off Holt’s best Sunday shots. Lamont Peterson vs Lucas Matthysse Betting Odds Total is at 9.5 Rounds with the OVER at -160.
Lucas Matthysse: The deceivingly strong, 5’6″ 69″, Lucas Matthysse is a pure puncher that is recognized by many as one of the hardest hitters in pugilism. Matthysse is similar to Peterson in the sense that his best assets lie in the less glamorous parts of the science. Matthysse is no speed demon but he knows how to cut off mark and wing bombs from looping awkward angles. The Argentine is also harder to tag than it would seem and his beard is top-notch. Matthysse most recently blew away fringe contender Mike Dallas in one round in a display of killer instinct. The big punching righty has stopped his last five opponents since being outpointed by top contender Devon Alexander.
Boxing Picks Analysis: Take the underdog Peterson who is physically bigger and faster. The elephant in the room also favors Peterson with the fight not testing for P.E.D’s. Peterson has been known to touch the juice and with that sort of advantage that +180 price tag looks that much more intriguing.

Saturday night at 11:30 PM ET Floyd “Money” Mayweather and Robert “The Ghost” Guerrero will dance for the world welterweight championship. Floyd Mayweather vs Robert Guerrero Betting Odds opened originally with the pound-4-pound king “Pretty Boy” Floyd as a 10 to 1 favorite but money on the “Ghost” has clipped the price to a modest 7 to 1. Mayweather, 43-0, 26 KO’s, most recently fought his most exciting bout against Miguel Cotto but some observers felt that “Money” was getting touched up a bit too much on his way to a unanimous decision. The former featherweight and lightweight champ, Guerrero, 31-1, 18 KO’s, roughed up and bullied top welterweight contender, Andre Berto as a 3 to 1 underdog, earning his right to dethrone Mayweather Jr.. Our fight picks experts broke down both pugs to determine who will cash tickets on the Boxing odds boards. Floyd Mayweather vs Robert Guerrero Betting Odds have Guerrero at +500 Moneyline ( risk $1000 to win $5000) at BOVADA CASINO!!!!
Robert Guerrero: Guerrero,30, is the consummate pro with no real technical flaws and a steely resolve. The rangy 5’8″ lefty has a 70″ inch reach and a sturdy frame as a welterweight weighing 152-155 Lbs. on the night of the fight. Robert is a well-rounded and intelligent boxer/puncher with above-average power and a strong body attack. “The Ghost” can nasty in the trenches when he needs to but he is better served boxing outside with his accurate combinations and sound footwork. Guerrero has a very good chin having never been stopped but he is susceptible to cuts and can be touched up. Floyd Mayweather vs Robert Guerrero Betting Odds Over/under is at 11.5 Rounds with the Over at -270.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. : “Money” Mayweather,36, stands a shade under 5’8″ with a long 72″ reach and a carved frame that goes 149-151 Lbs. on the night of the fight. Mayweather can do it all, box at range behind a piercing jab, counterpunch with precision toe-to-toe or sharp shoot with power. Mayweather is not known as a puncher but he is a better puncher than given credit for and his blinding hand speed creates openings for flush shots. Mayweather knows all of the tricks evading punches but his legs have lost a little spring and his reflexes may have dimmed a notch. “Pretty Boy” also has shown that his chin is not immune to welterweight power after getting bounced around by Shane Mosley but his stamina is unmatched.
Boxing Picks Prediction: Guerrero is going to be game and come out aggressive, better than fellow lefty Victor Oritz but eventually Mayweather will start picking him off and following up with some sting. Around the 9th round Guerrero will start fading and Floyd will pull away with a clear decision win. Guerrero will take some punishment along the way but his heart in chin will not let hime be stopped in this one. Grab Mayweather on the Boxing Odds prop board to win by decision at -300 rather than laying -700 on the moneyline straight up.
