For the WBO Featherweight Title. Quigg gets a shot at explosive, unbeaten Mexican Oscar Valdez in California on 10th March. Should be a great fight this one. If Quigg gets back to his form before the Frampton fight, I'd give him a decent chance against Valdez, who is a great fighter, but with a slack defence. However, if Quigg fights like he has done in his last couple of bouts, he'll be in trouble. One to look forward to, though.

sorry, got that mixed up BEtbright had De Leon at 2.4 and Vences at 1.57, while marathon had Vence at 2.48 and de leon at 1.75. Every other bookie had it 1.67 Vences and de leon 2.3.(sinilar story with Reed v Barboza) Not sure why Bright were out of step, but these 2 fights were very close

Reed is sticking in there, but he's quite far behind.

Reed is miles behind on the cards, but wouldn't be that surprising if he knocked Barboza out

I'm not sure, but I didn't want to open more accounts, so I didn't look any further.

seems like Reed is bigger and stronger, but less skilled.

But if I had accounts with those 2, I might have tried to get on. The prices were gone after an hour or so, so who knows?

Des have you seen Barthelemy box before? is he a concussive puncher?
Report Des Pond March 11, 2018 3:22 AM GMT
Barboza a bit quicker throws some good combos. Reed must have lost confidence after the ramirez fight. he's still there, though, tbf. having a go.

Barthelemy is very good, but sometimes loses concentration.very skillful, though. typicl Cuban.

and what about Lipinets? does he hit hard?
Report Des Pond March 11, 2018 3:26 AM GMT
He's not a KO artist, though. Relikh fought well in the 1st fight, and didn't deserve to lose, really. Not by the margin that he did.
Report Des Pond March 11, 2018 3:28 AM GMT
Lipinets can bang, but he won't get much success against Mikey.

Ramirez the guy who beat up Reed in his last fight, is fighting next week for the WBC Title, for which his his 1st mandatory will be Regis Prograis. So, that should be a great fight.

usually when a price is inflated like that, it means the market is fearing a shock KO defeat

A lot of people thought Relikh was hard done by the 1st time, so it's understandable. And relikh scored a knockdown if I remember correctly. I just think that barthelemy should be a class above Relikh, and should get the job done, if he has his head on right.

I've been thinking about it Des. If Quigg did just fail to make weight because he's getting older and it's harder to shift weight last minute when you're older, it means he's actually a live contender. Because he's not going to feel drained.

maybe. But there was plenty of support for Relikh, people who thought he should have won the 1st fight. Hard to believe he got beat by Burns.

Lacklustre show from Barthelemy, though. You can never fully rely on these Cubans.

I watched Burns v Relikh. It was 50/50, but Burns got the hometown judging decision. I remember winning on Burns because I believed he'd get the hometown rub and it proved fruitful.

Not sure now, the weigh in and build up have thrown up a few red herrings. I still think Valdez will be too good for Quigg, though. Hopefully Valdez on points for me. Though I've got a saver on the KO, just in case Quigg's foot really is injured.
