Jake Paul Takes on Anderson Silva this Weekend | Boxing Lines & Picks

Boxing Events

  • When: Saturday, Oct. 29

Karen Elizabeth Carbajal +849 vs Katie Taylor -3333

  • Unified Women’s Lightweight Championship
  • London – DAZN
21-0 with 6 knockout or technical knockout wins, Katie Taylor is as good as it gets. Taylor fought Amanda Serrano in

her last bout, beating the excellent Serrano via split-decision.

Karen Elizabeth Carbajal is 19-0. At first glance, it looks as if Carbajal has a shot. The record speaks for itself. But Karen Elizabeth has just 2 TKO victories. It’s close to impossible to outwork Taylor for a decision. Katie wins. Look for a prop with a better payout before accepting the -3333 money line odds.  

Boxing Pick: Katie Taylor 

Robeisy Ramirez -3333 vs Jose Matias Romero +853

  • New York – ESPN+

On the surface, it sure looks as if Jose Matias Romero is going to win this bout. Romero is 26-2 with 9 knockout wins.

A closer look reveals Romero is up against it versus Robeisy Ramirez. The underdog in this lost his last couple of bouts that happened on U.S. soil. The fights were against top competition, Isaac Cruz and 24-0 Michel Rivera.

Ramirez is 10-1 with 6 knockout wins. Robeisy’s loss happened back in 2019 and it was a split-decision 4 rounder. 

Ramirez should have no trouble winning this. He dominated Abraham Nova and Eric Donovan in his last couple of bouts. Like the Taylor fight, don’t accept the low money line odds unless you fail to discover a decent prop that you think can hit. 

Boxing Pick: Robeisy Ramirez  

Vasiliy Lomachenko -2500 vs Jamaine Ortiz +728 

16-0-1 Jamaine Ortiz likely believes his fantastic boxing skills will bring him victory over Vasiliy Lomachenko. Make no mistake, Ortiz can box. But Jamaine’s style includes leaving his hands down, pulling his head back from jabs, and moving in a traditional way off his line to deliver blows. 

Loma knows all of this, which means unless Ortiz is aggressive enough to push Vasiliy back, Lomachenko will use the best footwork in the history of boxing to time every one of Jamaine’s moves. Vasiliy wins via decision or knockout. Here’s another where finding a prop makes sense.   

Boxing Pick: Vasiliy Lomachenko

Le’Veon Bell +320 vs. Uriah Hall -526 

  • Glendale, AZ – Showtime PPV

Uriah Hall, the former UFC fighter, and Le’Veon Bell, the former NFL running back, will warm up boxing fans for Silva versus Paul. The odds on Hall continue to drop because Bell’s lone combat sports experience is in a boxing match against fellow former RB1 Adrian Peterson.

Bell knocked out Peterson in the fight. Since then, Le’Veon has trained hard. On film, Bell’s flaws are obvious. His biggest is a tendency to leave his left down. Hall fights with his hands up to deflect some power coming from his opponent’s punches.

Le’Veon will get caught. He’s never been hit truly hard. Uriah Hall’s MMA record shows he went 14-4 via knockout or technical knockout in his career. Bell is in trouble. 

Boxing Pick: Uriah Hall  

Anderson Silva +127 vs Jake Paul -178

  • Glendale, AZ – Showtime PPV

 5-0 Jake Paul continues to offer favorite’s odds even though he’s no where close to having better footwork than Anderson Silva. Paul’s one-punch knockout over Tyron Woodley in his last, impresses because Jake knocked out his rival with a single blow.

But Jake didn’t set up the punch. Tyron had his left down and Paul’s throw landed perfectly. Silva has a different style than Woodley.

Anderson is a capoeira expert. The Brazilian dance has taught Silva how to move his feet no matter the sport.

The former MMA great moves in the ring like he’s been boxing for years. Good feet is the most important boxing skill to have. Everything flows from how you move your feet and where you place your feet.

Silva should win this fight. Anderson via decision is the likeliest outcome. 

Boxing Pick: Anderson Silva +127

Undefeated Guido Vianello takes on Jonathan Rice on Saturday night in what should be an excellent bout. Vianello versus Rice is one of Saturday’s headline fights on a day when YouTube boxer Olajide Olatunji also throws down. Check out Boxing Lines, analysis, and free picks for five bouts taking place on Saturday, Jan. 14.

Top Boxing Events
  • When: Saturday, Jan. 14

Thomas Oliveira +644 vs Olajide Olatunji -1666

Olatunji, known as KSI to his fans, was supposed to take on mixed-martial-artist Dillon Danis. KSI last fought in August where he beat two fighters: YouTube rival Swarmz and Luis Pineda. 

On Saturday, Olatunji takes on Thomas Olievera. Known as FaZe Temperrr, there’s some reason to believe the underdog in this gets it done. 

Temperrr has a decent 2-1 record for an amateur. Not only that, but he trains as hard as KSI. Also, Olievera is 4 inches taller, weighs more, and has an inch reach advantage. 

Sure, KSI should win. But the odds discount Olievera’s advantages. Temperrr has a much better shot than the odds imply.    

Boxing Pick: Thomas Oliveira

Edwin Rodriguez +290 vs Floyd Diaz -476

American Floyd Diaz has a nice 8-0 record with 3 knockout victories. Diaz hopes to push the record to 9 when he throws down against veteran Edwin Rodriguez on Saturday.

Rodriguez is 11-6-2 with 5 knockout wins. Edwin last fought in 2021, which puts him at a disadvantage to win this. If Rodriguez is at the top of his game, he will out box his odds. 

But there’s no telling Edwin’s shape. So although Diaz is a slight underlay at his odds, backing Floyd is the way to go.  

Boxing Pick: Floyd Diaz  

Abraham Nova -116 vs Adam Lopez -119

Abraham Nova versus Adam Lopez projects as one of this weekend’s most competitive matches. Nova last fought in June 2022. Abraham lost the bout but it was against well-regarded Robeisy Ramirez. 

Adam Lopez is 16-3-1 with 6 knockout wins. Lopez beat William Encarnacion via unanimous decision in a bout that happened last May.

When odds dropped Lopez was more of a favorite. Late money has rolled onto Nova. But Ramirez exposed a few flaws in Abraham’s game. The slight chalk remains the choice. 

Boxing Pick: Adam Lopez 

Stephen Shaw -166 vs Efe Ajagba +120

Favored Stephan “Big Shot” Shaw is undefeated with an 18-0 record. Shaw has won 13 of his bouts via stoppage.

But although Shaw is undefeated, he’s a 3-year-old veteran up against a 28-year-old boxer with a single loss. Efe Ajagba lost to Frank Sanchez in 2021.

Last year, Ajagba bounced back with a fantastic victory over Jozsef Darmos. Efe beat Darmos via second-round technical knockout. No doubt, Ajagba is one of the toughest fighters Shaw has ever faced. Backing the dog makes sense. 

Boxing Pick: Efe Ajagba 

Jonathan Rice -136 vs Guido Vianello -101

Favored Jonathan Rice is 15-6-1 with 10 knockout victories. Rice has won his last 2 fights. Both bouts were against Michael Polite Coffie.

On Saturday, Rice takes on 10-0-1 Guido Vianello. The slight dog has won 9 of his bouts via stoppage. Vianello, no doubt, has what it takes to win this. 

Rice hasn’t faced power like Vianello’s in a while. Guido is the pick.  

Boxing Pick: Guido Vianello

Artur Beterbiev owns three of boxing’s light heavyweight division belts. Beterbiev would like nothing more than to grab the fourth. But before Artur can face off agianst Dmitry Bivol for the WBC Light Heavyweight Championship, he must get by Anthony Yarde in Yarde’s backyard on Saturday. Check out analysis and a free Boxing Betting pick for Yarde versus Beterbiev as well as four other of Saturday’s top boxing matches.

Boxing Events

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 28

Artem Dalakian -147 vs David Jimenez +106 | WBA Flyweight Title

  • London, England – 3:00 pm ET on ESPN+

Dalakian versus Jimenez should be a fantastic matchup. Artem is the slight favorite because he’s got a 21-0 record. 

Not only is Dalakian undefeated but he also has 15 stoppage victories. Of those 15 stoppage wins, 13 were via technical knockout and 2 were via straight up knockout. 

Jimenez is 12-0. David has 5 knockout wins, 3 technical knockout victories, and a referee technical decision victory. Jimenez last fought in July 2016. 

Dalakian’s last bout was November 2021. Not only that, but this is Artem’s first fight outside of the Ukraine. Backing Jimenez makes sense. 

Boxing Pick: David Jimenez  

Anthony Yarde +430 vs Artur Beterbiev -833 | WBA, WBO, IBF Lightweight Titles

  • London, England – 3:00 pm ET on ESPN+

For sure, Yarde has skill. Anthony uses his feet well, moves in and out of trouble, and can throw with both hands.

But although Yarde is a skilled boxer, he’s in trouble. Artur Beterbiev is 18-0 with 18 knockouts for a reason. Beterbiev doesn’t just have power. He wins angles so that he can throw his most powerful shots.

Yarde also tends to leave his hands under his chin, which is a recipe for disaster. Beterbiev will land an overhand right or left that ends Yarde’s night early.  

Boxing Pick: Artur Beterbiev 

Oscar Collazo vs Yudel Reyes

  • Inglewood, CA – DAZN

Collazo was supposed to face Wilfredo Mendez. But Mendez suffered an injury a couple of weeks back, which is why when Oscar steps into the ring on Saturday, he’ll take on Yudel Reyes. 

The underdog in this bout has an excellent 15-1 record. The knock against Reyes is that this is his first bout stateside. But if you can look past that issue, he’s good enough to challenge Collazo.

Oscar is 5-0 with 3 technical knockout wins. No doubt, he’s going to attract a ton of action. For sure, the likely favorite can win this. Backing Reyes, though, makes sense. 

Boxing Pick: Oscar Collazo 

Floyd Schofield -2500 vs Alberto Mercado +752

  • Inglewood, CA – DAZN

Alberto Mercado has a decent 17-4-1 record. However, Mercado has only stopped 4 of his opponents. That’s a huge red flag for those looking to back the underdog.

Floyd Schofield is one of the sports up and comers. 10 of Schofield’s 12 victories have come via stoppage. Floyd has knocked out 6 of his opponents, has won 3 via TKO, and has a referee technical decision victory on the record. Schofield ends Mercado’s night early. So, look for a knockout prop. 

Boxing Pick: Floyd Schofield  

Alexis Rocha vs Georgie Ashie 

  • Inglewood, CA – DAZN

Rocha was supposed to fight Anthony Young, but Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya’s boxing outfit, replaced Young with George Ashie. Once oddsmakers change the line, Alexis Rocha might be more than a -5000 favorite. 

Does Ashie have any chance of upsetting Rocha? Ashie is 33-5-1 and has yet to fight outside of his native Ghana. 

Ghana has terrific gyms. But Rocha is a legit welterweight title contender. So, no, Ashie doesn’t have much chance. Look for a knockout prop before accepting what’s likely to be -5000 or worse odds. 

Boxing Pick: Alexis Rocha
