Odds To Win 

Keith Thurman (24-0, 21 KOs) enters the fight a favorite in Vegas and online sportbooks. But Robert Guerrero is a rugged veteran that will not give in easily to the undefeated up-and-comer.

Thurman, 26 years old, comes to the bout having previously outpointed Leonard Bundu in a tactical chess match in December 2014. Before Bundu, Thurman had stopped Julio Diaz and veteran Jesus Soto Karass.

In his previous fight, 31-year-old Robert Guerrero (32-2-1, 18 KOs) defeated Yoshihiro Kamegai in a savage 2014 Fight of the Year candidate at the StubHub Center in California.  That bout followed Guerrero’s loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May 2013.

In regards to the Broner Molina fight, I see Broner is favored to win. I don’t see it that way, especially if he brings his own chin. I think Molina is a hard puncher and will put broner to the test. Broner who was calling out
Lucas Matthysse before Maidana knocked him flat on his ego, better bring a better than normal defense, because he does get hit often. And this Molina stepping stone to him, might be another set back. I think Molina should bring it hard in the early rounds and I think he could surprise everyone. By the way I think Matthysse would flatten Broner. He’s not the next generation champ he thinks he is.
