Boxing Bets For April 2018
is set to be a great month in boxing with a number of world title fights taking
place around the globe. Here is a look at the best bets for the month which will
hopefully help you to show a profit from the bouts.
DeGale v Caleb Traux
world champion James DeGale is set to meet American Caleb Traux on April 7 in
a rematch for the IBF super-middleweight title. Traux upset his British opponent
last year when he picked up a majority decision after 12 rounds in London. Chunky
was well beaten on that occasion as he failed to win for the second consecutive
occasion. Given Traux is now the champion, this contest will take place in America.
Therefore, at $6.0 in the
latest boxing betting for the rematch, the title holder is a fantastic price
to repeat the result which would be a huge blow to DeGale's career and one which
could leave him seriously considering retiring from the sport.
Joe Saunders v Martin Murray
Sport via Twitter
Joe Saunders has held his WBO middleweight belt ever since he defeated Andy Lee
in December 2015 in Manchester, England. The unbeaten boxer has defended his title
on four occasions since then, with his most impressive win coming recently against
David Lemieux in Canada. Saunders out-boxed the big hitter in his own back yard
and is very close to a unification contest later this year against either Gennady
Golovkin or Canelo Alvarez, who are set
to meet again in May. With so much at stake, it's difficult to see Saunders
taking his eye off the prize against Murray; therefore, take him to win the fight
inside 12 rounds, which is available to be backed at $3.25.
Frampton v Nonito Donaire
Frampton is set to return to action on April 21 as he looks to become a world
champion again. The Northern Irishman has picked to take on a tricky opponent
here as Donaire has won world titles at four different weights throughout his
successful career. Clearly Frampton has age on his side and that is likely to
be going to be the big factor here. However, it is not going to be easy for the
man from Belfast against his experienced opponent. Unfortunately at $1.52, you
are not going to get rich backing it, but Frampton should get the decision following
12 rounds at the SSE Arena.
Crawford v Jeff Horn
Jeff Horn is set to make the second defence of his WBO welterweight title against
Terence Crawford when the pair are scheduled to meet on April 14. The Hornet produced
the performance of his career when
he beat Manny Pacquiao last July. Since then he made no mistake against Gary
Corcoran in a comfortable performance in Brisbane. This is going to be very tough
for Horn, as not only is Crawford one of the best in the division, he is rated
by many as one of the leading pound-for-pound men in boxing at the moment. Expect
Horn to put up strong resistance, and the best bet looks to be for Crawford to
win on points, which is available in the betting at $3.25.
all the action throughout April and good luck if you are having a bet.
