19th May 2018 – Adonis Stevenson vs. Badou Jack
Our prediction: Stevenson to win on points
Has Stevenson still got the fighting spirit of a champion at the tender age of 40? Can Jack continue his fine run of form to dethrone a settled and wizened knockout artist? The bookmakers have answered these questions to favour the Canadian-based Stevenson for a straight victory. Although we back this premonition we don’t see the champ getting it all his own way. Jack is a handful in the ring and will offer a resistance that could push the fight to the final bell.
12th May 2018 – Sam Sexton vs. Hughie Fury
12 rounds, for Sexton’s British heavyweight title
This fight should be child’s play for Hughie who is punching beneath his weight in an opponent of Sam Sexton. The title challenger is no stranger to fighting for a a belt and last time out against Joseph Parker proved he can handle himself on the big stage. Sexton, however, is a domestic level boxer at best and will do well to keep pace with Fury, who we predict to win inside 12 rounds.
5th May 2018 – Tony Bellew vs David Haye 2
Our prediction: Bellew to win
Our betting prediction for this heavyweight fight is for Tony Bellew to take the win. This is by no means a popular opinion as many bookmakers have Haye as favourite. The Londoner is also being tipped to take this rematch by a large majority of fans on the boxing forum scene. Nevertheless, we can’t envisage Bellew giving up bragging rights for a double over Haye and will back him to dominate the fight. Given that Haye’s stake is also at pride there may be less risks taken by both fighters and spectators may brace themselves for a 12-rounder.
5th May 2018 – Joe Joyce vs. Lenroy Thomas
Our prediction: Joyce to win by KO
Save yourself a few quid by not betting on the outcome of this one. Until Joe Joyce’s next fight is a worthy test, against the likes of Dillian Whyte, Hughie Fury or even David Price, then every guy he gets in the ring with is getting sparked out. That’s how it’s going to be. We applaud the Jamaican Thomas for taking the fight although we can’t see him lasting more than three rounds. Watch out for those heavy bombs from Joyce – the Juggernaut knows how to put a man down early doors.
28th April 2018 – Jarrell “Big Baby” Miller vs. Johann Duhaupas
Our prediction: Miller to win by KO/TKO
31st March 2018 – Anthony Joshua vs. Joseph Parker
Our prediction: Joshua to win via KO/TKO
We’re opting for two possible outcomes for this fight. Our first prediction is for Joshua to win outright – the inexperienced Parker will struggle living up to the moment. We’re also tipping AJ to finish the fight inside 12 rounds, which going on current form, that won’t be a problem. In addition, we are anticipating the fight to end by KO/TKO on account of the forward-thinking game plan both Joshua and Parker will be adopting. Good luck with your stakes!
31st March 2018 – Alexander Povetkin vs. David Price
Our prediction: Price to win outright
A monumental night of boxing has given little love to Price vs. Povetkin who do battle in shadows of Joshua and Parker. We’re expecting price to give this all or nothing and hunt down the Russian for a knockout inside 12 rounds. He’s taken a few knocks himself in recent years and a win over an alleged drug cheat will serve as all the motivation he needs to put himself back in the frame as a top contender. If Price doesn’t get the upper hand and leaves the outcome in the hands of the judges then all bets are off: Povektin returns to the mainland with another scalp.
23rd March 2018 – Dillian Whyte vs. Lucas Browne
Our prediction: Whyte to win outright
It’s all on nothing for both fighters in this heavyweight eliminator. And it looks like a genuine grudge match. Whyte hasn’t held back with the verbal attack during the press build-up and based on past performances, we know he operates slicker in the ring when he’s facing a guy he hates the sight of. A win for Whyte puts him in contention of a big money showdown, whereas a loss sets him back to regional level.
Browne may have slipped under the radar but he’s not to be underestimated – still an undefeated fighter with a lot to prove. If the Australian journeyman wins this one, he’s pushing for a world title fight. If he loses, it’s back to obscurity. This fight may go the distance although we wouldn’t bet against a knockdown early on.
