Tank a double-digit favorite over HLG

WBA “regular” lightweight champion Gervonta “Tank” Davis is anywhere from a 10:1 to an 18:1 favorite to retain his title against WBA super featherweight king Hector Luis Garcia on Saturday night at the Capital One Arena in Washington, DC. The bout headlines a pay-per-view telecast to kick off 2023.

In the co-feature, welterweight Jaron Ennis is as much as a 50:1 favorite to defeat little-known Karen Chukhadzhian for the IBF interim belt.

On paper, the most competitive bout on the telecast should be the welterweight clash between Rashidi Ellis and Roiman Villa. Odds are 4:1 that Ellis wins that one.

Former two-division world champion Demetrius Andrade is about 20:1 to defeat Demond Nicholson in the super middleweight opener.

    • Yes and one or two of them may actually win but they will NEVER get the decision. Boxing judges are horribly corrupt. There is no other way to put it. Numerous times they have been the ONLY ones who have thought the house fighter has won. It’s disgusting.

    • Really isn’t. You want your underdog to have a reasonable chance of winning.

  • Would not surprise me at all if HLG pulls the upset. Dude has the pedigree, pro experience and absolute hunger to pull this one off. Furthermore, he’s fearless and not the least bit star stuck!!

  • Tank is fighting a guy he is at very least 10 to 1 to beat? This is why boxing is boring.

  • Mismatche odds, but the fights in reality can be lot more competitive, just the odd makers bussines to discourage you on betting for the favorite

    • Not really-betting on the favorite requires you to lay big money for small return. When one of the big favorites loses it will more than wipe out the small gains you have made by betting on them.

  • sometimes you can get a nice return when you bet on a live dog to earn a DRAW. Such as when they eke out a 1-2 rd win, but judges save face for the promters fighter be declaring a draw.

  • surely not worth a PPV because of the opponents. I would like to watch Ennis, Andrade and Tank for the talent levels but you gotta have comp. matchups..

  • I have a feeling it’s gonna be more competitive than the odds makers have it figured here.

  • 18-1, 50-1, 20-1….. looks like a really competitive fight card – definitely worth 80 bucks,
