Bigtime Timmy’s Boxing Wall Street Report
By Timmy Kudgis (June 16, 2010) Doghouse Boxing  
Welcome to the Boxing Wall Street Report! Whether you are on the front line in the boxing community, or you just make wagers on fight night, you are still investing in the sport one way or another. I am here to help you decide.

Welcome fight fans. To those who unfamiliar with the Boxing Wall Street Report it is simple.  The concept is I will invest as much as it takes to pay out a dividend of $100 hypothetically into the fighter and/or betting prop that I feel is a beneficial investment. During the following weeks the tally will add up showing just how incredible I am at my job.  
Well let’s get started.

Oliver McCall (+150) vs. Timur Ibragimov (-188) 12 Rounds Heavyweight

Our first fight we be held on Wednesday June 16th at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Hollywood, Florida. The match up is an intriguing one to say the least pitting two heavyweights at the crossroads of their careers against each other.  The winner could position themselves a fight or two away from a title shot.

Timur Ibragimov (27-2-1) has been 6-0 since dropping back-to-back decision to Calvin Brock and Tony Thompson.  His comeback has been against limited competition until now.  Though his opponent is not on the level that Thompson or Brock were on, he is always a very game opponent if he is mentally focused.

Oliver McCall (54-9) is on a three fight winning streak since losing his #1 contender position with the WBC at the hand of Juan Carlos Gomez.  Unlike Ibragimov he has stepped up in class in each of his fights since the loss. Though he probably has the strongest chin on the planet, he could be one of the top three least sane fighters in the heavyweight decision of all time.  Even at the age of 45 a focused McCall is few levels about Ibragimov in my mind.

Investment Advice:  Put $100 on Oliver McCall to pay out $150 dividend.

Over (-188) 9.5 Rounds Under (+138)
Andre Ward via Decision or Technical Decision (-115)
Allan Green via Decision or Technical Decision (+1100)

The final fight of the second Round of Showtime’s Super 6 Middleweight Tournament is another intriguing fight this week.  In this match up, a former Olympic gold medalist and WBA Super Middleweight Champion squares off against a top prospect who earned his way up the ladder to contend for the title.

Andre Ward (21-0) does not recognize the word “lose”.  He has been successful in all of his 21 professional bouts, while looking better and better each time he steps into the ring.  In his last outing he defeated perennial favorite Mikkel Kessler.  The most impressive part he seemed to become victorious with such ease.  Look for Ward to frustrate Green using his superior boxing skills to outbox Green while trying to avoid his power shots.

Allan Green (29-1) may not have the boxing skills or a high quality resume like Ward, but he posses the power that can severely alter a fight with one punch. Out of Green’s 29 victories 20 of them were via stoppage.  His only loss came in the middleweight division against power-punching Columbian and former top middleweight contender Edison Miranda (who promoter Dan Goossen thought Green should have had to defeat in a rematch to replace Jermaine Taylor in the Super Six).  To his credit shortly after the Miranda fight Green had to have a surgery that removed most of his colon.  The question is will Green be able to land the necessary power punch or punch to take Ward out of his game plan?

Investment Advice:  Andre Ward is my choice to capture victory but the straight up investment price is too steep to risk for only a $100 dividend.  I will suggest two different investments.  The first being the over 9.5 rounds, which will cost $188 to receive the $100 dividend.  The final investment is to invest $115 on Andre ward winning via Decision or Technical Decision to payout the $100 dividend.
