Matias vs Ponce Odds, undercard
Despite Matias having ten fights fewer than Ponce and one loss, the odds makers need to win the older Matias tonight. The Puerto Rican fighter is currently priced at -400 vs Ponce’s +270.
But victory is far from guaranteed for Matias. Ponce has had more fights than Matias and has yet to be defeated. The Argentine also has a height advantage over Matias, who stands 5-foot-11.
Jeremiah “Jere” Ponce didn’t turn pro until 2015 (considering his 30-fight career). He has won multiple national titles and an IBO super lightweight belt in 2019 but never a major world championship. Most recently, in April of last year, Ponce knocked out Achiko Odikadze to secure his 30th win.
At 30, Matias is four years older than Ponce but also started his career in 2015. He’s had a stellar career with 18 wins by KO and just one loss, but Matias is still at his best for a tragic fight in 2019 against Maxim Dadashev known ended in the death of the former due to injuries in the ring.
