Rey Vargas vs O’Shaquie Foster – Fight Prediction

Here at Pundit Feed, we love our boxing betting. Below are the best two wagers we see being worth betting on ahead of this fight.

O’Shaquie Foster to Win @ 1/1 (2.00)

This bet is going slightly against the bookies, with Vargas holding a narrow lead in the betting odds at the time of writing.

However, we say that Foster will make a statement in his young career by getting the win over Vargas here in Texas. Foster will be fighting at home, and is the more regular fighter in this weight division, with Vargas usually fighting down a few pounds. The size of Foster, plus his age, give him an edge here over Vargas. It will be a hard fought match, but expect Foster to clinch the vacant super featherweight belt.

Rey Vargas by Decision @ 11/10 (2.10)

Those who don’t fancy backing Foster should go for Vargas to win on points. The veteran has won his past eight fights by decision, and hasn’t recorded a knockout since 2016. If the Mexican is to win this fight, it sure won’t be through power—he’s looking lankier each fight. While we still believe Foster will have Vargas’ number here, there’s always a chance that the unbeaten 32-year-old will have the fight IQ to outsmart Foster and win this one through the judges.
