Demetrius Andrade vs. Luke Keeler

12 rounds, for Andrade's WBO middleweight title
Demetrius Andrade has been looking for a big fight for several years but he has failed to get one of the marquee names of the sport in the ring with him. He has compiled an impressive record of 28-0 with 17 knockouts. One thing to be clear about; Demetrius Andrade is a very, very talented fighter. His opponent Luke Keeler (17-2-1) has fought mostly journeymen and mediocre fighters which would make him look like an easy target but then all of a sudden in his last fight, he beats Luis Arias who is a former opponent of Daniel Jacobs. Luis Arias is a good, tough fighter and it was impressive that he was able to beat him and knock him down twice in the process. That shows you that Andrade is going to have to work for the victory because Keeler believes he can win the fight.
Andrade is clearly levels above this type of an opponent but the toughness Keeler has showed before makes us believe that he can stick around for a while, if not the whole distance. He will not win many rounds in the process, he might not even win a single round but that does not mean he is going to get stopped. Picking Andrade to win does not provide so good value but it is a sure thing so that makes it worth it. So the Pick is Demetrius Andrade to win the fight and then we have an additional pick with great value and that is Over 6.5 rounds for a price of -125.
