Joet Gonzalez is the pre-fight betting favorite, and the odds suggest defeat on Saturday is unlikely. It’s true that Dogboe is much better than his price suggests, and he is more than capable of winning this bout. We also fully appreciate – having flagged this point in just about every preview – upsets happen all the time in this sport. One punch can change the contest, turning the bout on its head. But we are on the same page as the bookies here and expect Gonzalez to come out of this contest as a deserving champion.
The 28-year-old fighter from Los Angeles, California, brings a professional record of 25 wins against two defeats, with 15 of those victories scored inside the distance. Both losses were inflicted on points, with the LA fighter losing to Shakur Stevenson in 2019 and Emanuel Navarrete last October. Both defeats have come in his last four bouts, and that may put a few off backing Joet, especially at such short odds, but we’re keeping the faith. Two great fighters beat him on points but won’t face as tough a test this weekend.
Since losing to Navarette in San Diego, Joet has boxed only once. Still, it was a winning return with an eye-catching victory over Jeo Santisima in Fresno, winning that bout by ninth-round stoppage. The vacant WBO International featherweight title was on the line that night, and the current champion won it in style. It was a punch-perfect performance, with Joet taking his time to grow into the contest, picking his shots, and impressing the judges. With the bout seemingly headed for a decision, Gonzalez went through the gears to get the KO/TKO.
When backing Gonzalez, there’s not too much to get excited about in the fight-winner market unless you are adding a few selections from different bouts to a parlay or multiple bet. Those looking for greater odds and a more exciting bet may want to try their luck on the method of victory market, and that’s our approach. If we take Joet to win, how will he get the result?
Clues can be taken from the champion’s recent form. When looking through past results, we note Joet has gone to points in three of his last four bouts. The spare in that run was the ninth round stoppage of Santisima, getting his opponent out of there in the penultimate round. With that in mind, we’re happy to follow the form and back Gonzalez to win on points.
We are pinning our hopes on Gonzalez living up to expectations and winning this bout, but it won’t be an easy night’s work. Dogboe has been a fantastic servant to boxing and travels with a professional record showing 23 wins and two losses. A total of 15 wins have come by stoppage, with one of his two losses inside the distance. The spare came at the fists of Emanuel Navarrete, who beat him in round 12 in a clash for the WBO super bantamweight title back in 2019.
Since that KO loss, the African-born fighter, now residing in Tampa, Florida, has fought three and won three. Two of those wins were on points, with the other being a final round stoppage, getting the job done in dramatic fashion with just seconds left in the bout. He’s a great fighter and won’t be easy to shift, strengthening our hopes of this going to points.
