The betting odds are out for Josesito Lopez and Marcos Maidana and we have a preview of the boxing action for you! The fight is airing on Showtime on Saturday, June 8th 2013, from the “Home Depot Center” in Carson, California.
Many would probably have never hear about Josesito Lopez if not for the punch he landed on Victor Ortiz that broke his jaw and earned Lopez a shocking TKO victory. That victory earned him a payday fighting Canelo Alvarez, a bout which saw Lopez take a beating and get stopped in the 5th round.
Now, Josesito Lopez steps up against Marcos Maidana, and the odds maker has set Maidana at -225. This means that Josesito Lopez is only a +185 underdog, which is a far cry from the long odds he had when facing Canelo.
Marcos Maidana made a switch in training camps to the “Robert Garcia Boxing Academy” after his loss to Devon Alexander. Since he started training with Rober Garcia, Maidana has gone 2-0 with 2 tko’s.
Maidana has been saying he wants to fight Floyd Mayweather if he beats Josesito Lopez, and if Lopez wants to survive he will have to avoid brawling with him. This means he will need to rely on boxing skills and try to win on the scorecards, because he has little chance of out slugging Maidana.
