Edwin Rodriguez vs Azea Augustama Betting Odds have Rodriguez as a huge 16 to 1 favorite.

Azea Augustama – Boxer: The 6’0″ Augustama is a physically imposing light-heavyweight that must have hollow bones because of his immense physical frame for the division. Augustama has some nice wrinkles to his game with the ability to fight outside behind a rangy jab, bodypunch with conviction or counterpunch at mid-range. On the downside, Augustama has faced relatively light competition and has been on the floor against C-level competition. Despite having a stain on his record and only 75 pro rounds in the bank, the aggressive Hatian is durable with a mean streak and an above-average degree of boxing science.  Edwin Rodriguez vs Azea Augustama Betting Odds have the Over/Under at 8.5 Rounds with the Over at -140

Edwin Rodriguez – Boxer: 6’0″ “La Bomba” is a thickly built long-armed light-heavyweight that walks around at 200+ lbs. outside the ropes. Rodriguez likes to press forward with his long jab and unleash bombs from looping angles to the head and body. Rodriguez’s best punch is his left hook and he looks to end fights with it any chance he gets. Rodriguez comes across as crude technically but is surprisingly accurate with his wide power shots and awkward lunges. Rodriguez has been in with good competition, has a good ticker and a steely pair of whiskers. On the downside, Rodriquez is technically flawed, has ordinary athleticism, can be counterpunched and is susceptible to cuts and swells.

Expert Boxing Predictions Analysis: Rodriguez is on the “A” side with political connections to HBO Boxing and promoter Lou DiBella but Augustama is a “sleeper” that is being overlooked. Augustama is surrounded by good boxing people in cerebral trainers Milton LaCroix and Tony Betancourt who feel confident they can expose Rodriguez’s limitations. Rodriguez’s best asset is his power but Augustama has good agility and can counterpunch.  Another x-factor is that fights above 147 lbs. require fighters to wear 10 oz. gloves which takes some of the sting off “La Bomba’s” blasts. With the pride of Hati on his back expect Augustama to fight out of his skin and score a huge upset on HBO Boxing.
