On Saturday, at the Fontainebleau in Las Vegas, the main event will feature Richardson Hitchins in a 12-round super lightweight bout against Gustavo Lemos. This clash of undefeated streaks promises a thrilling showdown where one of them will have to relinquish their perfect record.

In the co-main event, another duo with undefeated records will meet for the WBC USA and WBO International super middleweight titles. Diego Pacheo enters as a significant betting odds favorite to fight the latest challenger for his gold, Shawn McCalman.

Weekly Parlay with a Punch: Hitchins vs Lemos to Go Deep

With two highly anticipated bouts lined up for this weekend, it’s only right that I deliver to you the perfect parlay for Hitchins vs. Lemos. Continue reading to find the latest edition of the “Weekly Parlay with a Punch,” alongside the most noteworthy odds available for my boxing bets online involving the April 6 event in Sin City.

Hitchins vs Lemos Event Information

 

Hitchins vs Lemos Betting Preview

Hitchins, who has a record of 17 wins and seven knockouts, competed for Haiti in the Rio 2016 Olympics. He has shown significant dominance since transitioning to a professional career due to his exceptional talents, defensive expertise, and remarkable speed.

In his last performance, in September, he achieved a commanding victory by unanimous decision over Jose Zepeda, a former three-time world championship contender.

 


Lemos (29-0, 19 KOs) may not possess the same level of amateur experience as his opponent, but based only on statistics, he is the more powerful puncher and a formidable challenge.

The Argentine slugger has triumphed in his previous nine bouts by knockout, and he is now embarking on his first venture outside his homeland to participate and make a significant impact.

 


Parlay Pick Leg 1: Hitchins vs Lemos Over 10 ½ Rounds [-245]

We’re about to witness a technician versus a brawler in this weekend’s main event, but the sportsbook pricing of -883 on Hitchins makes it difficult to find value unless you support the dog play on Lemos.

Lemos is, and has always been, an absolute menace in the ring. Volume is his game, and dishing out pain is often the game plan, even if it means taking one or two shots to find his own. He notably switches stances and can effortlessly deliver such a high pace that most opponents he’s faced have struggled to keep up.

Hitchins is almost the polar opposite. He sticks to the fundamentals of boxing and accomplishes this style incredibly well. He doesn’t head hunt, and as far as fight intelligence goes, Lemos has never faced an opponent like Hitchins, whose crafty footwork and lightning hand speed will likely be the difference-maker.

Durability, however, is the leading factor for me. I’ve thoroughly analyzed the past performances and trends of both fighters. I struggle to envision either man losing via KO/TKO or even getting dropped for that fact. Moreover, anyone backing Hitchins should instantly be looking toward the decision-prop, but for parlay purposes, the Las Vegas Boxing odds on this bout going over 10 ½ rounds are playable.

 

 

  • Hitchins has never been knocked down during his professional career
  • Lemos has never been knocked out during his professional career
  • Hitchins has gone the distance in 6 of his previous 8 pro bouts

 

Hitchins vs Lemos Betting Odds


 

Pacheco vs McCalman Betting Preview

Pacheco, a 23-year-old boxer promoted by Eddie Hearn’s Matchroom Boxing, boasts an unblemished record of 20 consecutive victories. All but three of those contests ended via knockout or technical knockout.

Since being trained by Jose Benavidez Sr. in the Seattle area, Pacheco has maintained his undefeated streak and is now six wins deep inside the distance with his new camp.

 


In his most recent bout on Dec. 16 at The Armory in Minneapolis, McCalman, who is 30 years old and has a record of 15 wins and 0 losses with seven knockouts, achieved victory against Cristian Olivas, a seasoned Mexican boxer.

Hailing from Aurora, Colo., he demonstrated superior boxing skills in his last fight against American Money Powel IV (13-2, 8 KOs), resulting in a decisive victory. The bout occurred on Aug. 18 at the Overtime Elite Arena in Atlanta, where McCalman emerged as the unanimous winner after eight rounds.

 


Parlay Pick Leg 2: Pacheco By KO/TKO [-300]

It’s no secret that DAZN is looking to make the young Pacheco a star, and for this, they can’t just feed him winnable fights to the all-seeing-eye. However, despite his talents on display, McCalman is undoubtedly a set-up position for the Mexican.

McCalman is taking the biggest step up in competition ever. His style often presents a fighter who enjoys working behind the jab, jumping in and out of range with a punishing straight to the opposition.

However, while this approach has served him well thus far, an inability to land shots and keep his hands up will cost him dearly. As the longer fighter, Pacheco will punish McCalman when he enters that pocket, as he’s already overcome similar styles and finished more challenging opponents in the past.

With a -2000 moneyline price tag, Pacheco’s expected victory isn’t breaking boxing news. However, add the KO-prop into the equation, and -300 is the perfect final piece for our parlay.

McCalman will be in danger of Pacheco’s relentless quest to hurt the opposition he’s consistently displayed throughout his career. Couple this with a fighter who tends to keep its hands low, and it’s a recipe for disaster for the underdog, who’ll eventually be looking face-up at the arena lights.

 

 

  • Pacheco has won 17 of his 20 pro boxing bouts via KO/TKO
  • Pacheco is riding a six-fight KO-win streak
