Giemel Magramo vs Komgrich Nantapech Odds
*Odds taken 09/05/19.
Giemel Magramo’s lone career loss came in late-2016 to then-unbeaten Muhammad Waseem. Since then, Magramo has carved out a steady win streak and the 24-year-old is looking to notch his seventh consecutive win. He will also have partisan support as the Phillipino native will perform live for his compatriots.
Nantapech is definitely entering enemy territory and the Thai native is undeniably a game fighter. I just have to side with the betting favorite in Magramo vs Nantapech.
Magramo pieces up Nantapech
Magramo has collected some Oriental and International titles from WBO and WBC over the last few years. Nantapech has collected some gold in his own right, as he has won multiple Asian and Pan Pacific belts from IBF and WBA. Magramo vs Nantapech is a world flyweight title eliminator and the winner will launch themselves from the pan pacific circuit to the world stage.

Magramo has been promoted in a calculated fashion wherein he’s fought in front of incrementally bigger crowds against progressively better opponents. This growth process has Magramo at a point where he’s now putting away top ten caliber fighters as evidenced by his tenth round stoppage victory against Wenfeng Ge.
Nantapech wasn’t afforded that same luxury, and took three losses relatively early on in his career against opponents who had more than double the experience he did. Magramo vs Nantapech is a tale of two opposites in multiple ways.

Nantapech is no stranger to the underdog role as evidenced by how pundits previewed his Donnie Nietes fight which he eventually lost. You can’t say that Nantapech is averse to difficult challenges but I think he’s once again biting off more than he can chew.
Magramo has a KO rate just shy of 80 percent. Nantapech has only been stopped once in his career and that was his first loss in late-2012. He is definitely durable but I still see Nantapech being put away. I have Magramo winning by some form of stoppage inside of six rounds.
Pick: Magramo (-1100)
