Demetrius Andrade vs Brian Rose Betting Odds have Andrade as a -1300 favorite.

Our Expert Boxing Picks panel broke down the HBO Boxing undercard bout. Demetrius Andrade vs Brian Rose Betting Odds have Rose a +850 underdog (Bet $1000 to win $8500) Bet on BOXING at DIMES.EU
Demetrius Andrade – Boxer: The 6’1″ Rhode Island native is an aircraft-carrier sized 154 Lb. with an enormous 76″ reach. Andrade is similar to former middleweight champion Chad Dawson with size, fast hands, good power and a slick southpaw stance. Offensively, Andrade has all of the tools with big left-hand power, sizzling combinations and excellent dexterity. Andrade’s height and fast footwork make him a very difficult target defensively, although the Olympian was dropped once by Martirosyian. On the downside, Andrade makes good use of distance but he only throws one jab at a time and his head is too stationary. Andrade also tends to go back in a straight line when under siege, his excitability making him vulnerable to big punches. Andrade’s best wins are a UD12 over Vanes Martirosyian, Demetrius Andrade vs Brian Rose Betting Odds give Brian Rose a 9% chance of winning
Brian Rose – Boxer: The tall and rangy 6’0″ Brit is a European styled stand-up boxer with a decent ring I.Q and long 73″ reach. Rose throws good combinations offensively with his left hook being his best weapon. Tough and resilient, the once beaten Rose has shown he can go the 12-round distance. On the downside, Rose was the victim of a brutal one-punch KO early in his career and at time he is stiff and “gun shy”. Rose is only an ordinary physical specimen with average strength, speed and power. Rose has some holes defensively and his one-punch KO loss indicates their could be some glass in his jaw. Rose’s resume is also thin having never crossed the pond and fought in America.
Expert Boxing Picks Prediction: Expect Andrade to stop Rose and make a statement in his HBO Boxing showcase fight. The still developing, Andrade, 26, is learning how to harness his talents so laying 12 to 1 odds is rich but against a limited foe like Rose, money on “Boo-Boo” should be safe. Expect Andrade to win via 7th or 8th round KO.
