Shawn Porter Vs Paulie Malignaggi
Lets not get carried away, the likely result is Porter to win on points but from a betting view point there isn't much meat on that bone. The better bet is the 1/2 for Porter to win, which is only marginally worse than the odds on a Porter decision victory.
If you are seeking longer odds I think Porter has a chance to finish the job in rounds 7-12; Malignaggi's two ko defeats have come late on and Porter has a strong finish.
Bernard Hopkins Vs Beibut Shumenov
Like the Porter-Malignaggi bout, Hopkins-Shumenov is likely to go to points; Hopkins hasn't ko'd anyone for years and has never been ko'd himself.
The bookies know this so we have work around it. Hopkins to win is 8/15, which is almost as good as the offer on him to win by decision, and if either man can win by ko, it is Hopkins, who will be able to land easily on Shumenov.
