This Friday night the “Premier Boxing Champions” series airs on Spike TV with a main event featuring heavyweights Antonio ATarver and Steve Cunningham. The sport books have added other odds for boxing this weekend. On Saturday night the “Premier Boxing Champions” comes to us on NBC Sports from Montreal with a pair of Light Heavyweight bouts. The main event features Lucien Bute (31-2) taking on Andrea Di Luisa (17-2), and the co-feature sees Isidro Prieto (24-0-3) facing Eleider Alvarez (17-0). A long time holder of the IBF World title at Super Middleweight who entering 2012 had a record of (30-0) and had made 10 defenses of his world title, but he is (1-2) since then. The losses were to Carl Froch and in his last fight, in January 0f 2014, he lost to Jean Pascal at Light Heavyweight. Di Lucia is coming off a win last December that netted him the European Super Middleweight title, and he is moving up in weight class for the first time at this level. Bute is the big name here, and he is set as a solid (-3200) favorite over Di Luisa, whois returning at (+1600). The over/under for this 12 round bout is set at 8½, with the over paying (+140) and the under returning at (-160). This is Bute’s return bout after taking a year and a half off. In the other Light Heavyweight bout, Alvarez is a big (-1900) favorite over Prieto, who returns at (+1200). Alvarez is defending his WBC Silver belt, and he has been fighting at a high level since making his pro debut in 2009. Prieto had a few draws earlier in his career, but he is on a twelve fight, three year winning streak in his native Argentina, which netted him this opportunity. The We Ko Pa Casino in Fort McDowell, Arizona hosts a boxing card on Saturday that is set to air on LATV in the USA. The Light Flyweight 10 round main event sees former World Champion Giovani Segura (32-4-1) returning from a layoff that is 2 weeks short of a year. Segura is a big (-3750) favorite over opponent Juan Palacios (29-5-2) who is coming back at (+1500). Palacios is coming off a layoff of over two years, and his 2015 comeback has not gone so well, as he has gone (0-2-1) in three eight round fights he has fought since March of 2015. Heavyweight 10 rounds -Sunday sees Krasnodar, Russia hosting Heavyweight action as Russian prospect Vyacheslav Glazkov (20-0-1) faces veteran Kertson Manswell. Maxwell is a big underdog at (+5000) as he has gone (1-8) in his fights since the start of 2012. Glazkov, who is a massive (-15500) favorite, is just logging some ring-time in this one.
