    BOXING - Joan Guzman vs Humberto Soto - 11/17/2007

    Saturday, November 17th at 9:45 PM (ET/PT) on HBO - Borgata Hotel Casino and Spa in Atlantic City, NJ

    12 round SUPER FEATHERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP FIGHT
    • Joan Guzman (27-0, 17 KOs) -148
    • Humberto Soto (43-5-2, 27 KOs) +138

    Humberto Soto is on a 5 year, 20 fight winning streak. Can he keep that going in this one?

    It doesn't look like much action on "to win", but it looks like the OVER is the bet for rounds. Here are the current odds.

    • Joan Guzman (27-0, 17 KOs) -146
    • Humberto Soto (43-5-2, 27 KOs) +136


    • OVER 11.5 rounds -216
    • UNDER 11.5 rounds +196

    I like Guzman to win a decision. Guzman's lost much of his power since moving up from 122, but if he stays away from Soto and keeps the fight on the outside I think he takes a decision. Should be a very good fight.

    FYI for those that missed last week's Cotto/Mosley fight - HBO will replay the fight tonight.

    Nice call- right on. Once again like in any sport- speed kills.

    Thanks man.

    Guzman's reluctance to trade in the latter half of the fight could be costly. Arum's comments following the fight were pretty interesting, in which he was quite adamant that Joan's style cost him any shot at Pacquiao. I don't think Manny ever had any intentions of fighting him, as it's not a big-money fight (and he pretty much has to fight JMM again), but Guzman's probably left without a fight of any significance unless he wants to move up to 135 and fight Diaz, which would be a mistake.

    I was hoping for a much better fight. Guzman didn't do squat the last 3 rounds and the fight was closer than the judges scores. Can you believe Guzman weighed 148, 13 pounds more than Soto on fight night. 18 pound gain in one day
