Can Lomachenko Finally Unify Lightweight Titles?

The Ukrainian challenger will enter hostile territory on Saturday in hopes of beginning his campaign to finally become an undisputed champion. He’s one of the most decorated amateur boxers ever, with a past tenure that included two Olympic gold medals. Lomas’s pro career didn’t shift from his early successes, and after collecting the vacant WBO featherweight strap, he also picked up titles at 130 and 135 pounds.

Tightly fought battles with Teofimo Lopez and Devin Haney prevented the Ukrainian star from obtaining undisputed status, but aged 36, he undoubtedly has one more shot at redemption, and it starts with Kambosos and two of the four lightweight straps this weekend.


As he rose through the ranks of the local scene, Kambosos—now ranked seventh in the world at lightweight—amassed an impressive number of regional titles. Even though he battled twice in America, no one paid attention to him. Going to the United Kingdom to fight Lee Selby (SD 12) in an eliminator for the IBF championship was his big break. For that, he was allowed to face Teofimo Lopez, the current lightweight champion of the Ring, the IBF, the WBA, and the WBO. Despite being a heavy underdog, he kept his cool and defeated the talented American by a 12-round split decision.

 

 

Nevertheless, the well-liked Aussie was soundly defeated in his first title defense against Haney and subsequently suffered a similar fate in their rematch. He took a break, then came back to defeat Maxi Hughes by a hair.


Parlay Pick: Fight To Go The Distance/Yes (-275)

Boxing odds are slightly juiced in favor of Lomachenko, but rightfully so. Kambosos hasn’t lived up to the hype since his Lopez win, and skill-for-skill, he’s unquestionably the least impressive when matched up with Ukraine’s finest.

Personally, this contest boils down to Lomachenko’s age, and whether or not the glistening amateur and pro career stages he once shined on are still replicable, and if so, he’ll take the Aussie to school. If not, Kambosos has a chance to shine, but as I believe the favorite isn’t quite done yet, he’ll likely have enough left in the tank to meet the expectations of his current moneyline pricing.

That said, we aren’t here to back the -750 moneyline on Loma, especially after the questionable judging that cost him dearly in the previous bout. However, both men have displayed excellent chins during their respective careers, and as Loma isn’t necessarily a power puncher, his expected victory will likely arrive via the judge’s scorecards.

Likewise, Kambosos hasn’t displayed true power at the top of the sport but has also proven his ability to take shots and fight through. Australia’s finest might struggle for success in this bout, but he’ll at least survive as this fight sees all twelve rounds.

Supporting Betting Trends:

  • Lomachenko has never been knocked out
  • Kambosos has never been knocked out
  • Lomachenko has gone the distance in six of his previous eight pro bouts
  • Kambosos has gone the distance in six consecutive bouts

Can Guevara’s Grit Derail Moloney’s Title Bid?

You have to ask if Pedro Guevara is nearing the conclusion of a fantastic career at the age of 34. There was a time in the 2010s when he was generally considered the best flyweight on the planet, but significant wins have eluded him of late. Still, even if he has moved on from that, the veteran has never experienced a crushing loss, proving that willpower and a granite chin can take you far in the sport.

Guevara is no longer accustomed to defeating the world’s top fighters. However, he still gives them a run for their money, and the hometown betting favorite, Andrew Moloney, while not considered the world’s best, is certainly on the brink of achieving it.

Parlay Pick: Moloney ML (-227)

With the interim gold on the line, albeit a pointless decision by the WBO, and an opportunity for Moloney to fight Juan Francisco Estrada for the full title if he’s successful, it’s difficult to overlook the favorable variables surrounding the Aussie in this contest.

I don’t believe Moloney’s setbacks will be emulated by Guevara, who’s undoubtedly slowed down in recent years. Don’t get me wrong, the Mexican will put up a hell of a fight, and don’t be surprised if another tight decision evades his grasp. But by the night’s end, Moloney’s output and movement will beat the underdog’s aggression and heart.
