Magdaleno vs Dos Santos Odds
Here are the winner odds from online sportsbook 5dimes.eu
- Adeilson Dos Santos +2500
- Jessie Magdaleno -5000
The 25-year-old Magdaleno is a perfect 24-0 with 17 Kos to his name. He has 99 rounds under his belt since turning pro in 2010. He’s beaten the likes of Donaire, Erik Ruiz, Roberto Castaneda, Luis Maldonado and Raul Hidalgo with Donaire definitely being the best of the bunch and the only truly elite boxer he’s faced. Magdaleno stands 5-feet-4-inches tall and has a 66-inch reach. He’s also got quite a bit of power in his fists with a current knockout ratio of 71 per cent.
Even though he’s got a good knockout ratio, Magdaleno also has some good boxing skills. He enjoyed a fine amateur career with a reported record of 120-16. He was a Golden Gloves and National champion back in 2009 and learned lot in the amateur ranks. He’s handled the pro game well up to now due to his power and ring generalship.
The 25-year-old Dos Santos will climb into the ring with a record of 18-2 along with 14 Kos. He’s been beaten twice so far in his career as Fabian Oscar Orozco stopped him in the second round in March of 2016 and Kid Galahad beat him by a 12-round unanimous decision in September of 2014. Dos Santos turned pro in 2012 and has 91 rounds under his belt since then. He’s four inches taller than the champion at 5-foot-8, but has an unlisted reach.
Dos Santos is also quite powerful with a current knockout ratio of 70 per cent. However, he hasn’t really faced anybody of note so far in his career and will definitely be taking a step up in class against Magdaleno. He will need to bring some boxing skills along with his power if he’s going to be successful against Magdaleno. Dos Santos should try to use his height advantage and make sure he jabs his way in when moving forwards.
Magdaleno appears to be ready for prime time after beating Donaire in impressive fashion and this isn’t a bad bout for his first title defence. He took Donaire’s power shots well and if he can handle Dos Santos’ the same way then he should be able to box his way to a victory with a late stoppage also being a possibility. He’s the shorter boxer here so Magdaleno may have to work his way inside to be effective.
Magdaleno’s improving all the time.
