Expert Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week – July 2

Written by on July 2, 2018

With all eyes on Russia and the World Cup, it’s easy to forget that there are plenty of other betting options available to you in the wide world of sports. With the frenetic pace of the World Cup beginning to slow down in the knockout stages, we are going to begin to turn our attention back to some of those other sports. It’s a bit of a quiet week in the boxing betting business, but there are still 4 big fights to take a look at MyBookie Sportsbook, including a couple of big bouts in California this coming Saturday night. Let’s take a closer look at the action, with some picks thrown in for good measure.

Expert Top Boxing Betting Picks of the Week – July 2nd

Beibut Shumenov vs. Hizni Altunkaya

This fight is for the vacant WBA World Cruiserweight Title and will be held in Kazakhstan, which just happens to be Shumenov’s home country. He is 17-2 in his career, with 11 KO’s, which tells us that he has some definite stopping power to call upon. He will be up against a more experienced fighter in Altunkaya, who is 30-1 over his pro career. Only 8 of those 30 wins have come via the KO, so Altunkaya will be looking to take this one into the later rounds, as that represents his best shot at getting the win. He will be looking to avoid an early flurry to both slowdown Shumenov and silence the home crowd. Shumenov actually vacated this title after retiring due to an eye injury, but he is returning, and I think he will reclaim it.

Eduardo Hernandez vs. Marlyn Cabrera

Mexico City will play host to this 12-round WBC World Super Middleweight Title fight on Saturday night. Hernandez came up through the youth ranks to be a champion, and is undefeated in his professional career, boasting a record of 25-0-3. He has some real power, winning 21 of those 25 fights via KO. He will go against a dangerous opponent in Cabrera, who comes into this fight with a 24-2 record, with almost half of his win coming via KO. This will be a good test for Hernandez, but one he should pass with flying colors.

Kevin Johnson vs. Andy Ruiz Jr

This one is part of a big fight night set to go off in California on Saturday night, and it features a pair of boxers in desperate need of a win. Ruiz Jr. disappeared for a little while after losing a WBO Heavyweight Title fight in 2016, the only loss (30-1) of his career. He is slowly making his way back and will be looking at this one as the next step towards another title attempt. Andy Ruiz Jr shouldn't be one of your Boxing Betting picks of the Week. He should have little trouble here, as Johnson has looked like a fighter on the brink of hanging up the gloves for a while now. I think this one is over rather quickly.

Danny O’Connor vs. Jose Carlos Ramirez

Ramirez comes into this one looking to defend his WBC Super Lightweight Title for the first time after winning it against Amir Imam in March. That win took Ramirez to 22-0, with 16 of those wins coming via KO. Ramirez will be fighting on his home turf in California but will have a stiff challenge from O’Connor, who comes into this fight with a career mark of 30-3 with 11 KO. Ramirez looks to be the classier of the two fighters, and I think he will get the KO win here, although I believe it will come in the later rounds.
