Our freebets.com Big Boxing Acca is back this weekend with a real tempter weighing in at 8/1.
Don’t worry: the countdown to Oleksandr Usyk v Anthony Joshua II is nearly over, but first, we’re heading to Las Vegas this weekend for the return of another boxing superstar.
Former undisputed lightweight king Teofimo Lopez is making his jump up to 140lbs and taking on Pedro Campa in the super-lightweight division.
And if that wasn’t enough, exciting prospects Xander Zayas and Andres Cortes also feature on the card in Las Vegas that will be acting as an hors d’oeuvre to next weekend’s massive heavyweight clash.
Check out the legs here to a freebets.com 8/1 Boxing Acca:
Teofimo Lopez to beat Pedro Campa in Rounds 5-6
“The Takeover” didn’t last too long in the lightweight division.
After toppling the odds to beat Vasyl Lomachenko back in 2020, Lopez became unstuck against George Kambosos Jr. the following year, going from undisputed champion to former.
After deciding that 135lbs was too hard to keep making, Lopez is joining the super-lightweight division this weekend, taking on the pretty unheralded Pedro Campa.
Campa only has one defeat on his record but hasn’t been tested throughout his career, fighting outside of his native Mexico just once before.
Lopez is a man that enjoys making a statement, and a stoppage victory in the middle rounds is worth including in this weekend’s Acca.
Andres Cortes to beat Abraham Montoya by Decision/Technical Decision
Abraham Montoya has lost two of his last four fights and things are expected to get too much easier against Andres Cortes.
Cortes is unbeaten in 17 outings and is now knocking on the door of title shots in the super-featherweight division.
He is being backed by Top Rank and is relishing the chance to fight in front of his friends and family in Las Vegas, prior to spring-boarding himself into 10 and 12 rounders next year.
Abraham has shown his whiskers and resilience in previous losses and Cortes is going to have to work hard to find a stoppage here in an eight-round fight.
Xander Zayas to beat Elias Espadas by KO/TKO or Disqualification
Along with his name being a cracking Scrabble score, Xander Zayas is one of the hottest prospects in world boxing.
The Puerto Rican is looking to put his country back on the map following a few years in the shadows and Zayas looks capable after running 13-0 so far in his career.
The 19-year-old has nine stoppage wins on his record so far and should be able to sweep aside Elias Espadas in convincing fashion.
Espadas has lost four times but never been stopped – this would be a real statement if Zayas could get his Mexican opponent out of there inside the distance.
