Boxing Events in MyBookie: Hurd Vs Arias On Paul Against Mayweather Undercard
Top Boxing Events in MyBookie.AG
- When: Saturday, June 5 – Sunday, June 6
Saturday, June 5th Bouts
- Kamel Kouaouch +900 / Roman Fress -2000
Kouaouch is an undefeated Belgium fighter. The record is sparkling at 11-0. But before getting excited about Kouaouch’s chances on Saturday, notice he’s never knocked out an opponent. The guess here is that Belgium’s boxing gyms aren’t up to the standard of Germany’s, which is where Roman Fress is from. Then again, neither one of these fighters has ever fought outside of their home country. So, we really don’t know how good Fress is. -2000 is a lot to ask to lay on a fighter who may have as much of a juiced up record as his opponent’s.
Boxing Pick: Kamel Kouaouch
- Agit Kabayel -2000 / Kevin Johnson +900
Kabayel is 20-0 with 13 knockouts. Opponent Kevin Johnson is 35-17-1. Johnson is 41-years-old and should have no shot. But look at that? KJ knocked out his last opponent, Yan Pablo Hernandez. Hernandez was 29-0 at the time Johnson beat him. Kabayel should win, no doubt, but Johnson’s worth backing at the odds.
Boxing Pick: Kevin Johnson
- Archie Sharp -2000 / Marcio Soza +900
Sharp is undefeated. He’s got a nice 19-0 record. Sharp has won 9 of his fights via KO or TKO, which means he doesn’t always look for the decision. Marcio Soza is 21-6-2 with 12 knockouts. Soza has primarily fought in his native Nicaragua. Soza has some skills, but Sharp should pick him apart. Look for a prop bet before laying the -2000 for $100 profit.
Boxing Pick: Archie Sharp
- Iliyan Markov +1300 / Nathan Heaney -5000
Heaney’s nickname is “Hitman” but from 11 victories, he’s got just 3 knockout wins. Markov is 6-14-2. Markov has lost 3 fights via KO or TKO, which shows he’s got a good chin. But the underdog hasn’t fought in over a year. So, yes, even though Heaney doesn’t have a ton of power, he could win this one via knockout.
Boxing Pick: Nathan Heaney
- Bogdan Dinu +950 / Daniel Dubois -2500
Romanian fighter Bogdan Dinu is 20-2 with 16 knockouts. One of Dinu’s losses happened against tough brawler Kubrat Pulev. Pulev lost to Anthony Joshua in his last fight. So Dinu has fought at least one quality opponent.
Daniel Dubois is supposed to be the next great British heavyweight. Joe Joyce put those dreams on hold by knocking Dubois out in the tenth in Dubois’ last match. Who knows if Dubois has recovered from the loss? Dinu has some skills. He moves excellently for a big man, which means he’s worth a look at the extravagant underdog odds.
Boxing Pick: Bogdan Dinu
Sunday, June 6th Bouts
- Jarrett Hurd -1200 / Luis Arias +650
On Sunday, super welterweight Jarrett Hurd attempts to take another step back into the upper echelon of the division. Julian Williams upset Hurd in 2019. Hurd bounced back in 2020 with a win against Francisco Santana. A win over Arias could set him up for a championship elimination bout.
Hurd’s victory wasn’t overly impressive. But Jarrett has a big advantage over his opponent. At one time, Arias was a contender. He’s lost 2-of-3 and drawn in the third. Hurd is taller, has the longer reach, and should have no trouble measuring Arias with his jab.
Jarrett has power, 16 knockouts in 24 wins. So consider backing Hurd on a couple of round props. Eighth round or ninth round knockout look like solid plays.
Boxing Pick: Jarrett Hurd KO or TKO in Round 8 or Round 9.
