Top Boxing Events: Jacobs versus Ryder Main Event on DAZN

Noel Gevor Mikaelyan -330 vs Youri Kayembre Kalenga +250

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 12

Mikaelyan enters the match with a very good 25-2 record. The favorite has won 11 of his fights via TKO or KO. Also, the chalk hasn’t lost since 2018 and in his last fight he beat a decent boxer in Jesse Bryan.

Kalenga is 27-6. Although his record isn’t as sparkling as Mikaelyan’s, the underdog has won his last 3 fights via technical knockout and knockout. Overall, Kalenga has won 20-of-27 via TKO or KO. The underdog’s power could lead him to victory in this.  

Boxing Pick: Youri Kayembre Kalenga  

Hernan David Perez +500 vs Ralfs Vilcans -1000

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 12

Undefeated Ralfs Vilcans has a nice 12-0 record. Vilcans’ issue is that he hasn’t shown a ton of power in his fights.

Ralfs has just 5 wins via TKO or KO. But although Vilcans hasn’t shown power, he should have no trouble versus Hernan David Perez. The underdog is 8-5 with 3 TKO or KO wins. Vilcans takes charge early and either cruises to a unanimous decision win or drops Perez and wins via knockout. 

Boxing Pick: Ralfs Vilcans 

Austin Williams -4000 vs Javier Francisco Maciel +1200 

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 12

9-0 with 7 knockout wins, Austin Williams is one of the most heralded up and coming boxers in the middleweight division. Williams should have no trouble absolutely dominating Javier Francisco Maciel from the outset.

The Argentinian is 33-15 and has lost 9 straight bouts. Williams has enough power to knockout Maciel early. So look for a prop bet that shows better odds before dumping on the moneyline.  

Boxing Pick: Austin Williams  

Hopey Price -2000 vs Ricardo Roman +1000

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 12

Young 21-year-old Hopey Price is 6-0 with 2 knockout wins. Price has already scheduled a bout for March 26. So there’s only a small chance he loses to Ricardo Roman.

The underdog is 14-12-3 with 5 KO or TKO victories. Roman is a tough fighter who usually goes the distance. Look to play a TKO or KO prop in this bout, though. Price knocked out Zahid Hussain in the second round in his last. If Hopey has discovered how to put together his combinations, he can go on a KO streak. 

Boxing Pick: Hopey Price  

Felix Cash -1500 vs Magomed Madiev +750

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 12

14-0 Felix Cash has won 10 of his fights via technical knockout or knockout. He hasn’t gone the distance since 2018 when he beat Stephen Dayo via unanimous decision.

Magomed Madiev presents a serious challenge to Cash. Madiev is 15-0-2 with 4 knockout wins. He doesn’t have a ton of power, but he’s a smart boxer. Madiev gives up 2-inches in height, though. If you see a prop at decent odds where Cash drops Madiev for a knockout or TKO win, consider. 

Boxing Pick: Felix Cash  

Daniel Jacobs -165 vs John Ryder +135

  • When: Saturday, Feb. 12

Ryder versus Jacobs should be an excellent fight. Daniel Jacobs is one of those guys who always fights well. He doesn’t always win, but when he loses, it’s often against one of the best boxers in the world, like losing to Canelo in 2019 or dropping a match to Triple G in 2017.

Jacobs has won 2 straight. But he hasn’t fought since 2020, which is why John Ryder is worth a look.

With a 30-5 record, Ryder has the experience to beat a guy like Jacobs. Ryder’s last loss was in 2018 versus then 26-0 Callum Smith. Because Jacobs steps into the ring after an extended layoff, and because this happens in England, Ryder’s home nation, we must give the dog a shot.  

Boxing Pick: John Ryder
