Minty Bets is joined by Kevin Iole to preview the upcoming fight between Shakur Stevenson and Oscar Valdez.
MINTY BETS: Taking place at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada on Saturday, April 30th is the Super Featherweight Unification Bout between WBO champ Shakur Stevenson minus 550 versus WBZ champ Oscar Valdez plus 350. I'm Minty Bets. And joining me is Kevin Iole to give us his best bet. Kevin, what are your thoughts on this?
KEVIN IOLE: Well, this is a fight people wanted to see for a long time, Minty. They were in the Featherweight Division together and there was a lot of talk that we might see them fight. They've moved up to 130. Finally, we got them in the ring.
I like Shakur Stevenson here. Whenever I look at a fight like this, boxer versus slugger, I always go with the boxer, unless there's a real big reason to go with the slugger. And I think Shakur Stevenson is one of the best fighters in the world. I think he's on his way to being the best fighter in the world. He's not quite there yet, but I think he's on that path.
I think he boxes rings around Oscar Valdez in this fight. Oscar's always going to have a chance because if Shakur makes a mistake, Oscar has that kind of power, as he showed against Miguel Berchelt to end the fight. But I like Shakur Stevenson to win here. So, I will go ahead and lay that money. I will bet Shakur Stevenson to win.
MINTY BETS: Thank you so much, Kevin.
KEVIN IOLE: Thanks, Minty. Appreciate it.
