Berlanga better than a 5:1 favorite

Unbeaten IBF #5, WBO #5, WBA #8, WBC #11 super middleweight Edgar Berlanga (21-0, 16 KOs) is a -550 favorite over WBA #3 Padraig McCrory (18-0, 9 KOs) when they collide on Saturday night on DAZN from Caribe Royale in Orlando, Florida.

There is also wagering interest in the winning method since Berlanga, who opened his career with 16 consecutive first round KOs, now has a streak of five consecutive decision wins.

Here’s how that stacks up:

Berlanga By Decision: +105
Berlanga By KO/TKO/DQ: +130
McCrory By Decision: +850
McCrory By KO/TKO;DQ: +800
Draw: +2500

Holmes lights up Harrington
McCrory: I see myself knocking Berlanga out

  • Power obviously wasn’t as damaging when stepping up the competition. Think only Edwin Valero kept the KO streak going, man he was fun to watch but proved to a nutcase. The accident and getting punched in the head didn’t mix well, sad

      • How about Matias and Gary A Russell both have 100% ko records against descent opposition.

    • Great Mention: Edwin Valero is a top 5 fav. Paqs career would have gone completely different if Edwin remained in the picture. The rapid fall of Valero was devastating.

  • There is a great fight on the undercard that I am excited about.

    Baby Daddy Williams vs Behind On His Child Support Smith.

  • I hope to God Mike Tyson is allowed to fight Joe Biden. I would pay $500 to see that on PPV, just as long as we get a good ref to allow Tyson to handle his business. Wow, would I pay to see Tyson beat the living crap out of the piece of sht.

  • I see berlanga being thrown to the lions vs canelo on cinco de mayo! Berlanga will be a low risk high gain for canelo destroying berlanga and humiliating him in mexico! On the positive side for berlanga, it will be the most money he and hos promotors will ever make so is a win-win for everyone!

    • A friend of mine used to train a heavyweight contender in the 90s. They offered him 1.2 mil to fight either Bowe or Lewis, I can’t recall. He turned down the fight (on the advice of his manager) and took a tuneup for 35k and got stopped. Lesson learned, take the money. Berlanga can lose to anyone, might as well get paid to get beat up by Canelo .
