Anybody playing this fight? About 3-4 years too late for me, not very interested in this fight between washed up stars.

Im extremely interested in this, although both fighters are past it, its an even contest imo. I dont have time to do a write up but my tips for the card are:

Vargas KO @ $6.10: I see this as an even fight and getting Vargas to win by stoppage at $6.10 is way overs imo. Not betting the fighter, betting the odds. Also a small bet on Vargas as a cover for the KO bet.

Gonzalez vs. Johnson U/9.5 @ $1.65: Too sharp Johnson is one of the greatest fighters of this era but is way past it now. Gonzalez will be too strong and young and should stop Johnson sadly.

And for the casual fan, check Joel Julio on the undercard. This guy is all class and a future star imo. GL everyone.

Good luck andrew057. A couple of guys I respect are on Vargas, but I don't think he'll win if he continues with the boxing style he's employed since coming back. He's been anything but impressive to me since coming back, but I don't know status of Mosley's hand speed anymore either.

Had Vargas up 5-4 when the stoppage occurred. I thought he could have continued to, he was pressing action on Mosley. That eye did look much worse minutes later though when he exited the ring. Nice win for Shane though, one of the good guys in boxing. :yeah:
