Throwdown Fantasy: Jacobs v Quillin tops new game, plus head-to-head return

Throwdown Fantasy 02/12/2015

Head-to-head games, allowing players to go 1-on-1 to either up the chances of winning or settling a score, returns for the next $2,000 Throwdown Fantasy Boxing Game, online at www.ThrowdownFantasy.com, powered by CompuBox.

The much anticipated middleweight showdown between defending world champion Danny Jacobs and former 160-pound division titlist Peter “Kid Chocolate” Quillin headlines the new Throwdown Fantasy Boxing Game. Jacobs ($5100) is favored over Quillin ($4700) because the former is younger, bigger and hits equally hard. Both are dangerous punchers but Quillin has proven to have the superior whiskers.

The most prohibitive favorite in this game is Regis Prograis ($5800) versus underdog Abel Ramos ($4000). Prograis is a rising star whose boxing skills are far superior to always tough Abel Ramos ($4000)

Another heavy favorite is Fedor Chudinov ($5600) over aging former world champion Felix Sturm ($4300). Not only has Chudinov already defeated Sturm, he’s also younger, quicker and fresher.

Crafty southpaw Jesus Cuellar ($5400) has size and power advantages against Jonathan Oquendo ($4300). Cuellar figures to catch Oquendo after a few feeling-out rounds.

Former world champion Chris Algieri ($5000) may have lost his last two fights, but they were to Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan. Algieri’s aggressive style and experience should prove to be the difference against Erick Bone ($4300).

The best fight of the week may be between young, crowd-pleasing Omar Figueroa ($5000) and veteran Antonio DeMarco ($4200). The aggressive Figueroa must control the pace against DeMarco, whose best days appear to be behind him.

A heavyweight pick-em features a pair of potential future world title challengers in Dominic Breazeale ($4800) and Charles Martin ($4700). The big punching, tough Breazeale has holes in his game that he’s been able to overcome against smaller opponents. Martin, however, is a live ‘dog with the same size as Breazeale and equal power. Plus, he’s a lefty.

Another heavyweight class finds a fading Chris Arreola ($4800) fighting Travis Kauffman ($4500), who is moving up in clash in terms of quality of opponent. Weight is always an issue with Arreola, which effects his ability to throw punches in bunches. Kauffman wants to push the pace versus Arreola, taking him into deep water but winning rounds along the way.
