Betting Value on George Kambosos Jr
George Kambosos is the Australian boxer that caught himself in the middle of a bidding war between Lopez and various boxing promotions.
Kambosos is undefeated and is entering his prime at 27 years of age. With a record of 19-0, Kambosos is coming off an impressive win over Lee Shelby. Proving he has the ability to mix it with the best of boxing.
Kambosos was also the betting underdog against Shelby, averaging around +150, which gave him a more realistic shot than the oddsmakers are suggesting against Lopez.
That being said, Teofimo Lopez is on another level than any of the opponents that Kambosos has faced before. My early pick is Lopez gets the win inside the distance, be sure to stay tuned to BettingInsiderJournal.com for the best prop bets once they’re released.
Lopez Knows his Worth in 2021
The gamble has paid off for Lopez, who turned down a 1.25 million offer from Bob Arum of Top Rank boxing to fight George Kambosos.
A very Floyd Mayweather-esque move from the undisputed lightweight champion. One that will prove his worth against the major boxing networks and promotions.
Fighting on Triller could be a once-off for Lopez. However, Triller’s Ryan Kavanaugh made clear his company didn’t spend over $6 million on the fight to have Teofimo Lopez be a warm-up act for Jake Paul vs Ben Askren on April 17, or the next Mike Tyson exhibition, maybe against Evander Holyfield.
