Jason Sosa earned himself this fight with a knockout of highly rated Javier Fortuna and a one-sided unanimous decision over Steve Smith in England. Before that, Sosa fought to a draw with Nicholas Walters .
Vasyl Lomachenko just stopped Nicholas Walters in his last fight and now finds himself a considerable betting favorite against Sosa.
While Sosa has more professional fights under his belt, many of those were 4 rounders against low ranked opponents. In fact, Sosa has only been in two 12 round title fights in his career.
Lomachenko will be the more experienced fighter in the ring and will draw on a considerable amateur pedigree that his opponent lacks. We don't see an upset happening in this fight, though with Lomachenko such a prohibitive favorite the value lays in predicting how he will win.
In his win over Fortuna, Sosa was down on all scorecards until the come-from-behind stoppage in Round 11. Sosa struggled with the southpaw stance and was a stationary target for the punches of Fortuna all night long.
While Sosa can definitely take a punch, Lomachenko lets his hands go with flashy combinations and throws more volume than Fortuna, and this should wear Sosa down and present the opportunity for an eventual stoppage.
Prediction: Bet on Vasyl Lomachenko to win by KO/TKO/DQ at (-175) odds.
