|Mark Reyes Jr||+425|
Odds as of Feb. 16th
This prizefight represents two impressive prospects clashing whereby only one can jettison themselves towards that next tier of competition in the 147-pound division.
Bocachica’s Sophomore Shobox Bout
Janelson Figueroa Bocachica has put away seven of his last nine opponents leading into this fight.
Beyond the spotless professional record, Bocachica has 60 amateur fights and has captured a myriad of tournament championships through the early-to-mid 2010s.
His last bout took place at the same venue and saw him drop Nicklaus Flaz twice before halting him in the opening round of their October contest.
This upcoming fight with Reyes Jr. marks a step up in competition and one that Bocachica not only wanted, but specifically asked for.
Mark Reyes Jr. captured the American Boxing Federation Continental Americas welterweight title in 2018 and has largely carved out his path so far along the Florida circuit.
Reyes Jr’s Shobox Debut
Reyes Jr. is riding a streak of nine straight stoppage victories, with his last outing taking place in November of last year. Much like Bocachica, Reyes Jr. also secured a stoppage win in the opening round of his last bout when he halted Diego Perez.
Reyes Jr. also has a pretty deep amateur resume that is filled with tournament championships through a fifty-fight run before going pro.
He is taking this bout on less than a month’s notice but seems supremely confident in his general preparedness.
An aptitude for turning out the lights of his opponents is something Reyes Jr. has showcased even in the nascent days of his pro career.
The pair of welterweight pugilists are heavy-handed individuals who are proven finishers when you observe their respective knockout totals as well as recent efforts.
Bocachica vs Reyes Jr Tale of the Tape
|Nicklaus Flaz and Pablo Sanchez||Significant Wins||Rodrigo Lopes Rodrigues|
This one is scheduled for ten rounds but I think the brick-fisted proclivities of both will prevent the judges from being involved in the verdict.
I give Bocachica the slight edge in terms of facing superior opposition and I think that will shine through in this contest.
In my estimation, there is good value in pursuing a prop bet surrounding this fight not going the distance.
Pursuing a prop bet on Bocachica winning via TKO or KO also presents good value, I think. I foresee Janelson Figueroa Bocachica rendering his opponent unconscious when Bocachia vs Reyes Jr goes down.
Pick: Janelson Figueroa Bocachica (-600)
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
