Puello vs. Russell: Betting on a 100% KO Record

The Russell family are no strangers to providing top-class boxers, and Gary Antuanne Russell, with a 17-0 unbeaten record alongside a 100% KO rate, is a shining example ahead of his first world title bout for the WBC strap on Saturday night.

Opposite Russell will be Alberto Puello, a fellow young and undefeated 140-pounder who is a serviceable opponent for any world-level guy. However, the former world champion must rebuild his reputation after failing a drug test and being stripped of the gold.

 

Parlay Pick Leg 1: Fight to Go the Distance/No [-200]

It’s time for Russell to step out of the shadow of his siblings and prove he’s worthy at an elite level. Puello is a good starting point, and it’s difficult to overlook his potential success against “La Avispa,” and hopefully, he’ll begin to compete on a regular basis.

In the fight itself, Russell will have a field day once he closes the distance and unleashes the heat. Early on, the reach and technical ability of Puello will be notable, but as we saw in the Batyr Akhmedov split decision – that could’ve been a loss – “La Avispa” really didn’t answer well and couldn’t throw anything beyond single shots.

Russell will provide what Akhmedov did but with significantly more power and an eagerness to finish this fight. The American has finished all of his fights inside the distance, and he’s only had ten rounds to do so. Now, with twelve, those championship rounds will be brutal for the underdog, and his 0 is likely to go in devastating fashion.

The moneyline price of Russell is of no interest; we aren’t paying that juice like it’s a cold glass of OJ. Instead, backing this fight not to go the distance proves to be a worthy boxing betting pick, especially when dealing with an unbeaten 100% knockout record.

 

 

  • Russell is undefeated as a professional.
  • Puello is undefeated as a professional.
  • Russell has won 16 of his 17 pro bouts within 6 rounds or less.
  • Russell owns a 100% knockout rate.

Granite Chins Collide: Adames vs. Gausha – A Fight to the Distance?

The WBC finally stripped Jermell Charlo of the middleweight world title (hooray!), with the Dominican standout and interim titleholder, Carlos Adames, now stepping up to be the active champion that’s required.

Adames, 30, has lost just one of his twenty-four pro career bouts, but this 154-pound defeat against Patrick Texeira didn’t give him the athleticism advantage he was so used to previously. As a result, he found a new home at middleweight (160 lbs). Evidently a wise move, the championship gold that slipped out of his grasp in the lower weight class wasn’t the case at 160, and his back-to-back world title bouts have now produced consecutive knockout victories.

However, the question is, can he sustain this WBC reign with Ohio native Terrell Gausha stepping up to the plate? A decorated amateur background saw Gausha reach an Olympic level, and he’s mixed it up with some physically imposing boxers like Caleb Plant and Jesse Hart. The problem is, as a professional, Gausha has had patchy form, and big-named fights against the likes of Tim Tszyu have often resulted in defeat.

 

Parlay Pick Leg 2: Fight to Go the Distance/Yes [-110]

Two World Series of Boxing graduates do battle, and regarding fundamentals, I’d give Gausha the edge. He has the better jab and overall skill set, but athleticism with a dynamic offense will always make Adames look better for the judges.

The sportsbook isn’t leaving much value on the moneyline table for Adame believers, but I do believe we can bank on the durability of these brutes that make a perfect parlay addition.

It’s an intriguing fight, for sure, but from a betting perspective, toughness and granite-like chins have been clear positives for both men, and the judge’s invention will likely be required to decide a victor.

 

  • Adames has never lost by KO/TKO.
  • Gausha has never lost by KO/TKO.
  • Gausha has gone the distance in 7 of his previous 10 pro bouts.
  • Adames has gone the distance in 3 of his previous 7 pro bouts.
