Finally we see someone step up to take the challenge in Brook Golovkin as the pound for pound best boxer in the one has been lacking quality opponents. Great to see everyone back here at HRWager. Gennady Golovkin is a force of nature who is not only undefeated but has knocked out nearly everyone who steps in the ring. Applause to Kell Brook for not only putting his unblemished 36-0 mark to the test but by going up in weight classes to do so. Fight is in the UK so it is set to start at 5PM EST on Saturday, September 10th. Where can profit be plucked from this top flight fight this weekend?
Brook Golovkin : “Special K” Odds
Kell Brook is the underdog for this fight and frankly should be. Even fighting on his home turf and featuring a strong chin, his market price for this one is hovering near the +450 region. He has had a little more of the market shift as he opened closer to +480. One of the more interesting opinions on this fight comes from the man dodging GGG the most. Canelo Alvarez has gone on record that Brook is a sacrifice. No way he can jump up two weight classes and get it done against the worlds best. So what is the best approach for Brook to score the win here?
References to Leonard – Hagler
People that are betting Brook to win are looking at Sugar Ray Leonard’s win in 1987 as the path to profit. He jumped two weight classes and defeated the best boxer in that region in Marvin Hagler. However even this fight was somewhat tainted as it was a very controversial split decision. SO sharp boxing minds went to the man himself to get his opinion. Leonard is leaning towards GGG. He has no horse in this so it is interesting that he is going against the trend of leaping two weight classes. A little self serving however as it makes Leonard’s accomplishment look so much more special.
HBO is proud to put on such a stellar fight. Brook might be able to hang for seven to eight rounds here. So hard for the slippery boxer to fight a near perfect fight. If he gets tagged then its lights out. GGG catches him late and wins by Knockout. Good fortune to you in this fight and remember it is 5:30PM on Saturday so get those bets in early here at HRWager.
