Jamal James vs Alberto Palmetta Prediction & Best Bet

A lot is working against Palmetta in this fight. While he's an extremely talented boxer, it can't be ignored that he's dealing with a seven-inch height disadvantage this weekend. He's also lacking the professional experience that James boasts in spades, proven by the latter having held the WBA welterweight title.

James will be tough to stop due to his motivation from his championship loss. He's also a Minneapolis native, so there's no doubt that the rowdy crowd at the Armory will be heavily on his side. That sort of environment will make it tough for Palmetta to get much going.

I can see this one being a close-fought contest, but James' experience and the hometown advantage will see him edge Palmetta after the final bell.

Bet: Jamal James by Points (-140)
