Upset Special Tonight ...

Collazo beats Berto. Number should be close to a pick, take the +350 to the bank with Collazo.

I'd save the money and watch Berto dominate.
It's a HUGE fight for him, he wins and moves on to much bigger names.
Should be entertaining though.

Heard it here first cuz. Just tryin to make you a couple bucks.

Berto hasn't been in danger of losing any of his last 4-5 step up fights, but he sure as shit hasn't dominated either. Collazo is clearly a big step up from Forbes.

Collazo in a close, but unanimous decision.

Solid odds, no doubt about that.
Berto has actually been very dominant in his last few fights.
He pounded Forbes who has never been stopped in an easy decision.
His 3 fights before that were impressive against suspect competition, 3 stoppages.

I saw them all. I saw nothing dominant.

He controlled the fight against Forbes, but Forbes is a stiff. Three previous, IIRC, were middle round stoppages and he struggled in the early rounds in all of em before coming to.

One judge had it 116 to 111 Berto??? Are you kidding me.
I hope you didn't lose too much cuz.

Very good fight. I also had Berto 7-5. No large investment.

Berto showed balls, he was out of gas in the 10th I thought.
He looked fresh in the 11th and 12th and dominated those rounds getting him the win.
Very impressive performance after getting down big early.
